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 from the previous forecast of ¥20 per share by ¥5 per share, resulting in a dividend of ¥25 per share, in order to further realize shareholder returns and improve shareholder value.
With this change, and together with the year-end dividend (¥25 per share), the full-year dividend will be ¥50 per share.
