Capcom Announces Revision of Business Forecast,
Non-consolidated Business Forecast and Reasons behind the Difference from Previous Year's Business Results

Capcom Co., Ltd. (Capcom) has revised the consolidated earnings forecast that was announced on May 8, 2014 as follows based on results of operations thus far in the fiscal year. Furthermore, the non-consolidated business forecast is likely to be different compared with the previous year's actual business results. Details are as follows:

1. Revisions to consolidated forecast for fiscal year ending March 31, 2015
(April 1, 2014 to March 31, 2015)

(Millions of Yen)

  Net sales Operating income Ordinary income Net income Earnings per share of common stock
(yen)
Previous Forecast (A) 80,000 10,500 10,200 6,600 117.37
Revised Forecast (B) 65,000 10,500 10,700 6,800 120.93
Difference (B) - (A) (15,000) 0 500 200 -

(For Reference)
Actual ended Mar. 31, 2014
102,200 10,299 10,946 3,444 61.11

2. Reason for the revision

The previously sales forecast has been lowered primarily due to the severe impact on pachislo machine sales of the delay in the introduction of a new model caused by the revision on September 16, 2014 in the method used for testing new models and to delays in the launches of some midrange titles in the Digital Contents business.

There is no revision to the operating income forecast. Earnings are benefiting from strong repeat sales of catalogue titles, which have a high profit margin, and highly profitable digital download sales in Europe and the United States. In addition, the benefits of improvements to the business structure and measures to cut the cost of sales and selling, general and administrative expenses have been greater than expected.

The ordinary income and net income forecasts are higher based on the outlook for foreign exchange gains resulting from the yen's depreciation and for other reasons.

The forecast for the year-end dividend is unchanged at 25 yen per share.
