Important Themes for FY2021

  • Forecast 9th consecutive fiscal year of operating income growth driven by Digital Contents business
  • Aim to achieve record Consumer sub-segment sales volume of 32 million units by leveraging two major titles: Resident Evil Village and Monster Hunter Rise.
  • Prioritizing safety in carrying out business operations while working to minimize the impact of COVID-19.
    Anticipate any impact on business performance to be negligible at this point in time.

Financial Results for FY ended March 2021

  • Net Sales: 95,308 million yen (16.8% UP from the previous fiscal year)
  • Operating Income: 34,596 million yen(51.6% UP from the previous fiscal year)
  • Net Income Attributable to Owners of the Parent: 24,923 million yen(56.3% UP from the previous fiscal year)
  • Operating Margins: 36.3%(8.3 point UP from the previous fiscal year)

During the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021, Capcom's core Digital Contents business drove results with continued success in promoting digital sales in addition to major new releases such as Monster Hunter Rise and Resident Evil 3, as well as sales growth for catalog titles such as Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. Further, following its mainline business strategy of promoting digital sales, Capcom saw growth in overseas revenue due to realizing both expansion of its regional markets and longer product lives for its titles. Altogether, the above factors resulted in the eighth consecutive year of operating income growth, and the fourth consecutive year of record-high profit at all levels in company history.
