Capcom management sees returning profits to shareholders as an issue of the utmost importance; thus, with consideration given to future business developments and changes in the management environment, we strive to pay stable dividends with a consolidated dividend payout ratio of 30% as our basic policy.

Based on the above-stated policy, we have decided to increase the interim dividend for the current fiscal year by ¥5 per share, for a dividend of ¥20 per share, in order to further realize shareholder returns and improve shareholder value.

With this change, and together with the year-end dividend (¥20 per share), the full-year dividend will be ¥40 per share.
