Distributing profits to shareholders by increasing earnings is one of the highest priorities of Capcom.
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.
