Announcement regarding Scheduled Change in Principal Shareholder and Principal Shareholder that is the Largest Shareholder, as well as the Acquisition of the Company's Stock (Code No. 9697) by Tsujimoto Co., Ltd.

Capcom Co., Ltd. (the Company) would like to announce today that we anticipate a change in a principal shareholder and the principal shareholder that is the largest shareholder. As described in the attachment from Tsujimoto Co., Ltd., we were notified of the decision that ownership of the Company's stock that is held by Crossroad Co., Ltd., the Company's principal shareholder that is the largest shareholder, will be transferred to Tsujimoto Co., Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Crossroad Co., Ltd., following an absorption-type Corporate Split in which Tsujimoto Co., Ltd. will be the successor company and Crossroad Co., Ltd. will be the splitting company, with an effective date of July 2, 2021. Details are as follows.

The materials provided herein serve as both public disclosure based on Securities Listing Regulations as well as an announcement to be made pursuant to Article 30, Paragraph 1, Item 4 of the Order for Enforcement of the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act in Japan, based on the request made by Tsujimoto Co., Ltd. (the acquirer of the shares) to Capcom Co., Ltd. (the issuer of the listed shares to be transferred).

1. Background

The Company was notified by Tsujimoto Co., Ltd. that Tsujimoto Co., Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Crossroad Co. Ltd., has entered into a contractual agreement with Crossroad Co. Ltd. for an absorption-type Corporate Split where 21,365,200 shares of the Company held by Crossroad Co. Ltd. will be transferred to Tsujimoto Co., Ltd. As a result of this, there will be a change in the Company's principal shareholder and the principal shareholder that is the largest shareholder as of July 2, 2021, the effective date of this absorption-type Corporate Split.

Additionally, the Company was notified that Tsujimoto Co., Ltd. plans to change the name of its business to Crossroad Co., Ltd. as of the above date. Therefore, following the July 2, 2021 name change, Tsujimoto Co., Ltd. will become the Company's principal shareholder that is the largest shareholder as Crossroad Co., Ltd., and the splitting company in the absorption-type Corporate Split (Crossroad Co., Ltd.) will cease to be the Company's principal shareholder that is the largest shareholder.

Further, the "Notice Regarding Decision to Acquire Stock" received from Tsujimoto Co., Ltd. has been included as a separate attachment as it is possible that the acquisition of the Company's stock from Crossroad Co., Ltd. by Tsujimoto Co., Ltd. may constitute an act of buying, specified by Cabinet Order as an act equivalent to the launch of a tender offer as stipulated in Article 167, Paragraph 1 of the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act and Article 31 of the Order for Enforcement of the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act in Japan.

Tsujimoto Co., Ltd. and Crossroad Co., Ltd., the splitting company in the absorption-type Corporate Split, are asset management companies either directly or indirectly wholly owned by the Company's representative director, Haruhiro Tsujimoto, and their close relatives.
