Capcom Co., Ltd. announces that at the Board of Directors meeting held today, it has approved the following distribution of dividends from retained earnings of the year ended March 31, 2019. This matter is scheduled to be brought up for resolution at the 40th Ordinary General Meeting of Shareholders, scheduled to convene on June 17, 2019.

(Note) With an effective date of April 1, 2018, Capcom performed a 2-for-1 stock split of its common stock. Therefore, the dividends listed for the previous year represent the actual amounts before the stock split.

2. Reason

Capcom management sees returning profits to shareholders as an issue of the utmost importance; thus, with consideration given to future business developments and changes in the management environment, we strive to pay stable dividends with a consolidated dividend payout ratio of 30% as our basic policy. Due to the great success of Resident Evil 2, as well as the performance of Monster Hunter: World, operating income, ordinary income and net income attributable to owners of the parent all increased to record highs in the 2018 fiscal year.

In considering our financial results for the 2018 fiscal year, and based on the above-stated policy, we have decided to increase the year-end dividend for the year ended March 31, 2019 by ¥5 per share, for a dividend of ¥20 per share. With this change, and together with the interim dividend (¥15 per share), the full-year dividend will be ¥35 per share, with a consolidated dividend payout ratio of 30.3%.
