Capcom Web Site Ranked Second among Sites of All Publicly Owned
Japanese Companies

– Capcom site places first in “ease of use” category –

Capcom Co., Ltd. placed second in the “Fiscal 2009 Listed Company Web Site Quality Ranking” compiled by Nikko IR Co., Ltd.

The Nikko IR Web site ranking was based on an evaluation of the sites of all 3,779 publicly owned companies in Japan. The evaluation covered 131 items involving investors’ needs in three categories: ease of understanding, ease of use and volume of information. Many organizations recognize the reliability of data used for the Nikko IR ranking. For example, this ranking is incorporated in the “Disclosure and Internet Quality” indicator of NEEDS-Cges, the corporate governance evaluation system of Nikkei Digital Media, Inc.

The Capcom Web site received very high marks in the fiscal 2009 survey, placing second overall and first in the “ease of use” category.

Capcom’s goal is to create an investor relations web site that gives investors and other visitors a complete and well-balanced understanding of the company’s activities and objectives. Numbers, graphs, images and explanations are used to present information about the company’s markets, business activities and other aspects of operations. In addition, the web site features many components that give visitors more insights into Capcom’s activities. For example, visitors to the web site can read interviews with game developers and watch excerpts of hit games from previous years.
The web site also presents information from sources. Visitors can see information on the consensus of analyst opinions, how analysts evaluate Capcom and other information. By supplying a variety of information from objective sources, Capcom allows investors to view information about its operations and performance from many perspectives.

Capcom believes that these elements were responsible for its increase from last year’s fourth place ranking to second place in fiscal 2009.

Capcom will continue to position the distribution of information on its Web site as a core element of its investor relations program. The company is determined to take more steps in order to further improve its disclosure activities.
