Partial Amendments to the Articles of Incorporation

The Board of Directors of Capcom Co., Ltd. today approved a resolution to submit a proposal at the Ordinary General Shareholders Meeting scheduled for June 17, 2009 to amend the Articles of Incorporation as follows.


1. The reasons for the amendments

1. By virtue of the coming into force of the "Law for Partial Amendments to the Law Concerning Book-Entry Transfer of Corporate Bonds and Other Securities for the Purpose of Streamlining the Settlement for Trade of Stocks and Other Securities" (Law No.88, 2004; hereinafter referred to as the "Settlement Streamlining Law"), the Company would like to make partial amendments to the Articles of Incorporation of the Company as described below:

(1) In accordance with the provisions of Article 6 of Supplementary Provisions, the Settlement Streamlining Law, it has been deemed that the Company adopted a resolution to amend the Articles of Incorporation on the effective date of dematerialization of share certificates (January 5, 2009), by abolishing the Article which provides for the issue of share certificates. Therefore, Article 7 (Issue of Share Certificates) of the current Articles of Incorporation will be deleted.

Due to amendments to the deemed Articles of Incorporation as stated above, the Company will delete Article 9 (Number of Shares of One Unit and Non-Issuance of Share Certificates for Shares Constituting Less Than One Unit), Paragraph 2 of the current Articles of Incorporation, and at the same time delete and modify certain words relating to share certificates.

(2) Due to the abolition of the "Law Concerning Central Securities Depository and Book-Entry Transfer", the Company will delete the words of "beneficial shareholders" and "beneficial shareholders' register" from the Article 10 (Request to the Company for selling shares constituting less than one unit) and Article 11 (Administrator of Shareholder's Register) of current Articles of Incorporation.

(3) The register of lost share certificates will be prepared and retained until the day on which one year has elapsed from the day following the effective date of the "Settlement Streamlining Law", so that the necessary provisions will be established as supplementary provisions and such provisions will be deleted on January 6, 2010.

(4) The Company will make other necessary changes by adding to, deleting from and modifying provisions and words of the current Articles of Incorporation.

2. The effectiveness of the election of a substitute Corporate Auditor will continue until the start of the ordinary general meeting of shareholders relating to the last fiscal year that ends within four (4) years after the election.
