Shareholders and investors have made the 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.

  • Information on shareholdings

    (1) Policy and standard for investment securities classes

    Regarding investment securities held for purposes other than pure investment, Capcom maintains holdings having comprehensively considered their merits and demerits from a medium- to long-term perspective, in order to strengthen and deepen ongoing business relationships and determine if they will contribute to improving future relationships or building sustainable corporate value, while also eliminating such practices as conventional cross holdings or personal favoritism.

    (2) Investment securities held for purposes other than pure investment

    A. Method for verifying the policy and rationale for holdings as well as the results of verification carried out at board of directors meetings, etc., regarding the suitability of individual securities

    Based upon the nature and monetary amount of business transactions, the board of directors considers the business merits and strategic significance of maintaining or developing a business relationship with the company in question while regularly assessing and verifying the long-term outlook and counterbalance of risk versus return to the cost of capital from a medium- to long-term perspective.

    Accordingly, as the standard for continued investment, should it be judged that there is poor economic rationale for continuing to hold a given security due to the book value falling more than 50%, or the value of the company in question being dramatically damaged, we will carry out discussions with said company and either reduce or completely sell off our holdings at an appropriate time after having given due consideration to factors including economic conditions, etc.
