These tables and graphs present information about dividends per share and the dividend yield over the past years. This page also contains information about the Capcom shareholder benefits program.
1. Principle related to dividends
One of our management priorities is on stable and continuous dividends to all shareholders, taking account of our future business strategies as well as our management environment.
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. Shareholders' Hospitality Program
Capcom does not administer a shareholders' hospitality program.
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.
