Capcom reports six-month profit decline

Capcom has reported half-year financial results showing drops in profit from all major divisions.

The publisher actually brought in a 22 per cent increase in revenue to $262m, but profits slumped across the board, with Digital, Arcade, and Pachinko segments all in decline compared to the same period a year ago.

Capcom’s Digital Contents business was up just 6.2 per cent to $118m and operating income fell nearly 30 per cent to $12.5m, due to a lack of major releases during the stretch.

Arcade Operations were even worse, with revenue down 8.6 per cent to $36m and operating income falling 46.2 per cent to $2.8m.

The firm’s Pachinko and Pachislot business fared better than the others, with revenue up 76 per cent to $100m thanks in large part to the release of the Resident Evil 6 machine. Still, the revenue spike couldn’t stop a 19.2 per cent dip in operating income to $21.5m.

Overall for the period, net profits sank 34 per cent to $16.2m.
