2. Reason for the revision

In the first half of the fiscal year, the Mobile Contents business is performing well mainly because of the popularity of “Smurfs’ Village.” Performance of the Consumer Online Games business has benefited from strong sales of “Monster Hunter Frontier Online” and other titles. In addition, the Arcade Operations business is performing well because operations have resumed at all locations that were closed after the Great East Japan Earthquake, sales at existing arcades have recovered, and the impact of the electricity shortage was not as severe as expected.

As a result, Capcom expects first half sales, operating income, ordinary income and net income to be higher than in the initial forecast. Capcom is making no revisions to the fiscal year forecast because the economic outlook is becoming increasingly uncertain and market conditions are changing rapidly.
