Sales and Profit Up in Consolidated Results for the
Three Months Ended June 30, 2020
Net Sales Up 32.2%, Operating Income Up 39.1% Year-over-year

- Net sales and all profit items hit record levels for a first quarter, driven by major new title release and digital sales growth -

Capcom Co., Ltd. today announced that in its consolidated business results for the three months ended June 30, 2020, net sales were 23,722 million yen (up 32.2% year-over-year), operating income was 10,711 million yen (up 39.1% year-over-year), ordinary income was 10,619 million yen (up 37.9% year-over-year), and net income attributable to owners of the parent was 7,815 million yen (up 44.2% year-over-year).

This quarter, temporary closures of stores amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic created a challenging environment for the Arcade Operations business. Elsewhere, the core Digital Contents business drove business results through digital sales growth of major new titles and catalog titles, backed by successfully promoting stronger digital sales in recent years. As a result, Capcom achieved its highest net sales as well as highest levels of all profit items for a first quarter.

The forecast for the consolidated business results for the current fiscal year ending March 31, 2021 remains the same as what was projected at the financial results announcement on May 8, 2020.
