Shareholders and investors have made the practical and effective functioning of internal control into a key issue amidst an epidemic of corporate misconduct in Japan and overseas. In this section, Capcom will explain the corporate governance structure and systems that it has initiated so far based on the key concepts of "effectiveness and visibility" in terms of the results of third party assessment.

(Assessment areas are highlighted in yellow.)

Third-Party Assessment

Promoting More "Visible" Governance

An analysis of an assessment performed by a third-party organization into the validity and effectiveness of Capcom's corporate governance shows that the company ranked 35th among 3,460 listed companies in Japan in the "NEEDS-Cges" assessment developed by Nikkei Digital Media, Inc.

"NEEDS-Cges" has an established reputation as a system that quantitatively assesses corporate governance using scores on a scale of 1 to 10 for eight categories, including "capital efficiency," "information disclosure," and "shareholder and capital composition," among others, assigned based on some 130 indicators calculated from data of publicly released company documents, such as financial reports.

Capcom's total score was 8.75 points, placing us in the top 1.1% of Japan's listed companies. Our score also exceeded the average for all listed companies and for the industry, at 5.45 points and 7.77 points, respectively. We continued to receive the full 10 points for "shareholder and capital composition" and "information disclosure" important for corporate governance.

The main reasons for each of these perfect scores are given in the chart provided below, but in particular, areas highlighted in yellow indicate measures that received particular notice.

Going forward, we continue making improvements based on consideration of external data to earn an even stronger assessment, and further promote the external visibility of our governance by posting this and other data on our corporate website.
