Capcom shareholders open company up to takeover possibility

Today, Capcom announced that at its most recent investor meeting, its shareholders voted to end the company's takeover defense -- which means that Capcom could now be acquired if a company buys up large amounts of its stock.

Many companies have defenses against a stock purchase takeover, and there are various schemes and strategies they can adopt to block a party from gaining control of the company by buying up its stock.

Capcom originally put such countermeasures in place in 2008 following a shareholder vote. This latest development won't stop the company's management from attempting to "react to make necessary measures within the admissible limits of applicable laws and regulations," the company said in its statement.

    Aw 🤬 I didn't expect it to happen this soon. I'm sure Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft are all plotting on buying Capcom as I type this.

    Man...2 of the 3 big companies are gonna suffer badly from this.


    I would think that capcom would want to stay Japanese, but the American manufacturer might throw more money at them. So it could go either way.

    Won't be Sony cause they can't afford it. Would be MS or Nintendo. Realistically though it will probably be a mobile company or a media conglomerate like viacom and comcast or even disney.

    actually yeah, if amazon is serious about their gaming division, I could see them trying for it. didnt they buy out the killer instinct team?

    But likely it would be disney if its a non gaming company. they HAVE to know the value of the brand, especially since they have Marvel already. Disney might actually not be a terrible choice for gamers, since they wouldnt deny any single system. And it would likely increase the chances of a new mega man.

    Was just about to say this.....

    If I were Nintendo I'd be at my investment bankers office right the 🤬 now trying to buy out Capcom. I'd buy every single piece of Capcom.......

    @Sion what u think

    🤬 Amazon, Nintendo NEEDS this.... they still regret losing Sonic the way they did but that was cuz Sega Sammy wanted a lifeline SMMFH. Nintendo only wanted Sonic. Maaaannn if Nintendo buys out Capcom no one will EVER be able to stop them. This is the equivalent to Disney buying Marvel but in the gaming world.

    I think Sony will likely make a serious bid for it tho SMMFH. They need franchises and have the money and need more avenues to make money. But honestly Nintendo should make the move. I wouldn't even mind paying more than what it's worth for it's brands. Street Fighter really is priceless as is Megaman. Those franchises have terrific brand loyalty and have surpassed gaming. Not to mention they still move units every time they drop. With Megaman, Nintendo's versatility and risk taking factor is easily what the franchise needs for a revival.

    If Nintendo don't do this maaaaaannnn they gonna be kicking themselves. The tricky part tho is going to be cutting out the 3rd party support. So if Nintendo buys Capcom, that means there will be no Street Fighter for Sony or Xbox and that's something Capcom would have to think about. It's an interesting idea but one I hope Nintendo seriously considers. Street Fighter will sell no matter what platform it's on.

    MS is so rich they could buy Sony and Nintendo and Capcom and the entire gaming industry and still have cash to blow. That's even more interesting too that despite that cash load and ability to make the best hardware b/w the 3 they still can't break a dent of market cap from either of it's major competitors.

    Would it be possible that the properties get sold piece by piece? Like Nintendo got Mega Man, Sony got RE, MS got Dead Rising, etc. Like what happened with Thq.

    Mega Man, of course, should undoubtedly go to Nintendo. But honestly, I can't see Street Fighter thriving with them though. What was the last fighting game that Capcom got on Nintendo? Tetsonuko vs Capcom? it barely sold over half a million. MS or Sony are its only logical homes. Thats why I think it would be better for gamers in general that someone besides the big 3 buy them. Hell maybe even Warner Bros. We'd finally get that MK vs SF game lol

    But I still say Disney scoops them up. At least their fighting game franchises. Marvel vs Capcom 4 for all next gen systems; we all win.

    A japanese company needs to buy them, somebody that lets them operate freely
