   In the fiscal year that ended in March 2011, Capcom surpassed its most recent forecast by overcoming intense competition to achieve all-time high sales and growth in earnings. Due to this strong performance, Capcom has decided to increase the year-end dividend by 5 yen from 20 yen to 25 yen. With the first half dividend of 15 yen, this will result in a dividend of 40 yen for the fiscal year.
