July - September 2020
"Another strong quarter is behind us, and that is saying a lot given the huge progress we saw in the first half of the year. Even with the third quarter being seasonally weak and lockdowns being eased in many countries, G5's strategy of seeking organic growth based on the development of our own games aimed at our core audience of casual players continued to pay off and led us to record profitability, both in absolute and relative terms" said Vlad Suglobov, CEO of G5 Entertainment. "Our EBIT margin in the third quarter hit an all-time record of 16.1 percent. G5's own games, and especially the new generation of titles, continued to spur growth in the period and this past quarter continued to reflect the leverage our business has in driving margin expansion."
Revenue for the period was SEK 332.4 M (301.5), an increase of 10 percent compared to 2019.
