Capcom Dividend Scenario

Capcom Dividend Scenario

One of our management priorities is to share profits with all our shareholders. Our basic policy is to aim for a payout ratio of 30% while taking into account our financial condition and future business strategies, and going forward we will strive to provide stable and continuous dividends.

In terms of our shareholder return policy,

  • (1) Capcom will enhance its corporate value through investment and growth;
  • (2) the Company will aim for payout ratio of 30%, and going forward strive to provide stable and continuous dividends.
  • (3) we will raise earnings per share through share buybacks.

Our surplus dividend is basically paid twice a year, that is, at the end of mid-term and fiscal year. Dividend payment amount is decided by a competent corporate body, which is the board of directors for the mid-term, and during the shareholders meeting for the fiscal year.

2. Shareholder Benefits

Capcom does not currently offer shareholder benefits.
Our basic principle is to share our profits with our shareholders via dividends.
Also, for the sake of the majority overseas shareholders who are more likely to be unable to enjoy the benefits of a shareholders' hospitality program, we do not have plans to implement such a program yet in order to be fair to all of our shareholders.
