G5 Entertainment

Free-to-play games for mobile devices

G5 Entertainment develops and publishes free-to-play games for smartphones and tablets. The games are family-friendly, easy to learn and target a wide audience of experienced and inexperienced players. Distribution is achieved digitally through the various app stores of Apple, Google, Amazon and Windows. In addition to its proprietary games, the company is also a publisher of games licensed by other developers, in which case a royalty is paid to the developer based on the game’s sales performance.

As the total amount of revenue from fully owned games increases, stronger margins are expected due to the lower royalty costs that G5 today pays to external developers. As a market-leader within the hidden object game category, along with a strong fan base, newly launched games are easily adopted by the market. In addition, newly launched games within new gaming categories increase their list positions in app stores without significant marketing due to cross selling.

Despite the business model's stickiness, the company faces the risk that users may stop playing certain games. Risks hence arise if the main driver games, which generate most of G5's revenues, start to lose their momentum. The scenario hence requires other games to drive revenue or else a higher amount of UA costs will be necessary. Also, having its distribution through different app stores, G5 is dependent on both the relationship with the distributers as well as their standard terms and conditions.
