The following presents the number of votes in favor, opposed or abstained for the matters to be resolved at the year ended March 31, 2018, general shareholders' meeting, the requirements for the resolutions to be passed and the results of voting.
|Resolutions||Approval Votes||Votes Opposed||Abstained Votes||Approval Rate (%)||Voting Results|
Proposed Appropriation of Retained Earnings
Election of Eight (8) Directors (excluding Directors who are members of the Audit and Supervisory Committee)
Election of Three (3) Directors who are members of the Audit and Supervisory Committee
Election of One (1) Substitute Director who shall be a member of the Audit and Supervisory Committee
Notes: Conditions for each proposal to be passed
- (1) For the first proposal, the approval of a majority of shareholders in attendance.
- (2) For the second, third and fourth proposal, at least one-third of the company's shareholders with voting rights are in attendance and a majority of the said shareholders in attendance approve.
- (3) The approval percentage is calculated as follows:
Approval percentage = Number of votes in approval (votes exercised prior to the meeting ＋ a portion of shareholders in attendance on the day of the meeting) ÷ Number of votes (votes exercised prior to the meeting ＋ shareholders in attendance on the day of the meeting)
- The reason why a portion of the voting rights of shareholders in attendance were not added to the total number of voting rights:
The total confirmed number of votes in approval from the votes exercised prior to the meeting and a portion of the shareholders in attendance on the day of the meeting fulfilled the requirements for each proposal. As a result, the number of voting rights for which confirmation was not made in terms of approval, opposition or abstention from shareholders in attendance on the day of the meeting were not counted because the proposals were legitimately approved in accordance with the Companies Act of Japan.
Question and Answer Summary
Regarding your sales strategy for video game software, how are you thinking about the ratio of sales for each game platform?
We are pursuing a multi-platform strategy; because the functionality and specifications of each hardware platform differs, we carry out development that best suits the functionality of each.
Regarding esports, I believe it would be best to develop multiplayer online games because team-based competitive games are the mainstream. Capcom is currently using Street Fighter, but what are your thoughts on utilizing other titles in esports?
We plan to continue promoting Street Fighter as our flagship esports title in the future. Additionally, we will consider developing multiplayer online games and act accordingly. Also, note that it is possible to play Monster Hunter: World with up to four people throughout the globe.
I believe that if the number of Nintendo Switch units sold increases, it should positively impact Capcom's performance. What are your impressions of the Switch?
We currently have Monster Hunter XX (Double Cross) Nintendo Switch Ver. available for the Nintendo Switch, and plan to continue developing other titles for this platform in the future. Additionally, going forward we would like to focus on esports, as well as developing video games that take advantage of connection speed improvements on smart phones and those that support ongoing visual improvements in televisions.
