Capcom Homepage Takes Top Spot Overall in Fiscal 2016
Listed Company Website Quality Rankings for the First Time!

– High marks for comprehensive information on corporate governance and ease of use –

Capcom Co., Ltd. (Capcom) today announced it has been awarded first place overall in the Nikko Investor Relations Co., Ltd. (Nikko IR) Fiscal 2016 Listed Company Website Quality Rankings for the first time.

In the Fiscal 2016 Listed Company Website Quality Rankings, the homepages of all 3,688 nationally listed companies were evaluated based on the needs of a wide breadth of stakeholders—beginning with individual, institutional and foreign investors, and including customers, clients, employees and local communities—across 178 criteria from three perspectives: ease of understanding, ease of use, and volume of information. Many organizations recognize the reliability of the data used for this ranking; for example, it is utilized as an indicator for Internet and Disclosure Quality in NEEDS-Cges, Nikkei Digital Media, Inc.’s corporate governance evaluation system.

Capcom believes that being thorough in its accountability and offering timely and appropriate disclosure to all of its shareholders and investors is both its duty as a listed company, and absolutely vital from the perspective of corporate governance. Capcom’s IR website in particular is highly intuitive and can be utilized as a tool by investors and other visitors to deepen their understanding of Capcom. Further, in addition to information on the market environment and Capcom’s businesses, the company has made strides in expanding non-financial information on the site, including interviews with developers and rankings of past hit-titles. This fiscal year the company focused on further enriching information related to governance via such measures as providing the Corporate Governance Code in HTML on the site.
Additionally, Capcom endeavors to provide quick disclosure and usability improvements by meeting users on their terms with a smartphone-compatible website, the release of an iOS app, and by providing information in real-time via each of its social networking site pages.

On the occasion of this award and moving forward, Capcom will continue to fulfill its duty in accountability as a listed company and endeavor to further establish systems for thorough, timely disclosure.
