Konami : Interim Report FY2022

Nov 25, 2021

Message : April 1, 2021 - September 30, 2021 KONAMI HOLDINGS CORPORATION To Our Shareholders On behalf of the Konami Group, I would like to express our gratitude to all of our shareholders for their ongoing support. Before any other matters, I would like to extend my thoughts and prayers to all of those who have contracted or have been affected by COVID-19. In addition, I offer my utmost respect and gratitude to the healthcare professionals and others working on the front lines to treat this disease and prevent infection. Due to the long-term impact of COVID-19 in the first half of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2022, there have been further changes to people's lifestyles and values. Even under these circumstances, the digital entertainment business has remained strong, which has enabled the Konami Group to provide enjoyment through content and services, our strengths, to many customers around the world. Also, as socio-economic activities gradually return to normal in Japan and overseas, some of our businesses have begun to see the outcome of efforts made since the previous fiscal year to improve financial results. As such, we saw profits in all categories, starting with business profit, which experienced a record high, greatly surpassing the previous record. The interim dividend will be ¥36.50 per share, an increase of ¥14.00 compared with the previous fiscal year. Going forward, we will strive to improve our growth and financial performance to further increase dividends. In the world of the new normal, the needs for entertainment and sports have steadily increased, and we are confident that these will continue to be appealing markets rich in growth opportunities. The entertainment field is highly promising and will continue to be developed by the evolution of technology, including artificial intelligence (AI), fifth/sixth generation mobile communications (5G/6G), cloud technology, and non-fungible tokens (NFTs); the accelerated pace of digital transformation; the growth of esports; and other advancements. In the sports market, there is significant margin for promoting digital transformation in line with 1 changes to lifestyles, and we began to develop new busi- nesses, such as a wide-ranging service for offering lessons that can be attended online. Additionally, we will promote reforms, including a shift to an asset-light business model (excluding directly managed facilities). To date, the Konami Group has developed by flexibly responding to changes. We feel that the current environment, in which the world is changing dramatically, is an opportunity to ride the cresting wave of further growth into the future. We will also redouble our efforts to reinforce the Group's initiatives for realizing a sustainable society. We will further promote sustainability management, such as climate change response and corporate governance reform. As we work toward this goal, we would like to ask for the continued support of all of our shareholders.

Dramatic battles between unique players and spectacular live performances by guest artists from within and outside of KONAMI took place at the esports GINZA studio, which is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities for esports. These competitions were streamed on the official YouTube channel. There was considerable fanfare within the community, with views for these videos exceeding 1.8 million (as of October 2021) and hashtags related to the event trending on Twitter numerous times. We will continue to spread the appeal of the BEMANI series, which encompasses both music and games. 3 ©Konami Gaming, Inc. All rights reserved.
