Sales and Profit Up in Consolidated Results for
the Three Months Ended June 30, 2019
Net Sales Up 4.3%, Operating Income Up 50.8% Year-over-year

- All profit items hit record levels for a first quarter,
driven by contributions from catalog titles -

Capcom Co., Ltd. today announced that in its consolidated business results for the three months ended June 30, 2019, net sales were 17,938 million yen (up 4.3% year-over-year), operating income was 7,703 million yen (up 50.8% year-over-year), ordinary income was 7,699 million yen (up 40.2% year-over-year), and net income attributable to owners of the parent was 5,420 million yen (up 38.9% year-over-year).

This quarter, the Digital Contents business continued to grow steadily, with sales of last year's hits Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry 5 rising further, driven by an expanding base of fans. Meanwhile, fiscal year 2017 release Monster Hunter: World continued to perform well over the long term, buoyed by enduring popularity. Altogether, led by catalog titles, high-margin digital download sales grew, increasing profit significantly. As a result, Capcom achieved its highest levels of operating profit, and all subsequent profit items, since it began disclosing quarterly results.

The forecast for the consolidated business results for the current fiscal year ending March 31, 2020 remains the same as what was projected at the financial results announcement on May 7, 2019.

  1. a. In this business, as the first quarter corresponded with a transition period between major titles in the overall release cycle, new game launches were limited to a small number of rerelease titles. However, sales continued to grow for hit titles from the previous quarter Resident Evil 2 (for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC) and Devil May Cry 5 (for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC), driven by an expanded user base. Flagship title Monster Hunter: World (for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC) has also continued to sell well over an extended period, supported by enduring popularity. These catalog titles boosted profit significantly by driving high-margin digital download sales.
  2. b. The resulting net sales were 13,977 million yen (up 1.4% from the same term in the previous fiscal year) and operating income was 7,733 million yen (up 34.8% from the same term in the previous fiscal year) primarily due to contributions from catalog titles.
