Capcom Captures First Place among Asia-Pacific IR Websites
in the "IR Global Rankings 2013"

– Strengthening the global disclosure of information by using social tools –

Capcom Co., Ltd. (Capcom) is pleased to announce that its investor relations website placed first in the Asia-Pacific region in the IR website category of "IR Global Rankings 2013".

"IR Global Rankings" was created jointly by the London Stock Exchange, the international law office Arnold & Porter, the KPMG accounting firm, MZ Group, a prominent IR consulting firm, and Sodali, a corporate governance consulting firm. The high level of analysis and assessments used to determine this ranking are recognized worldwide.

Companies are ranked in four categories: "IR websites", "online annual reports", "financial disclosure procedures" and "corporate governance". More than 300 companies worldwide participated in the 2013 rankings, which was the 15th year of this event.

IR websites are evaluated based on "Content", "Design" and "Navigability", "Interactivity", "Technology & Data Handling" and "Timeliness". Judges use these criteria to evaluate the breadth and format of IR content disclosed along with the ease of navigation, use of video content and other items.

The English-language section of the Capcom IR website is also structured to give investors along with a broad range of other visitors a better understanding of the company. For example, visitors to the website can read about education support activities in the CSR section and there are many measures that help make content easier to use. Furthermore, Capcom has expanded the amount of information provided from an external perspective, such as by including a third-party view of corporate governance and discussions with a securities analyst and an external director.

Capcom continues to focus on establishing responsible investor relation practices and procedures to promote timely disclosure in order to improve investor relations and to maintain a high level of transparency in its business practices as a listed company.
