Q & A

Business operations

Does Embracer provide a financial forecast?

Does Embracer communicate all acquisitions regardless of size?

No, some acquisitions without any notable contribution on Embracers operational EBIT during the coming two years will instead be communicated directly from Operative Groups or noted in future quarterly reports of Embracer. This was also communicated in our interim report Q2 21/22 (page 34)



Why doesn’t Embracer Group disclose release dates of games?

In regards to all questions about the release date of any of our upcoming titles, we refer to the publisher. As a part of our decentralized model, we trust that our developing team and publishers will communicate the release dates when they think it is ready.



How does Embracer Group approach ESG/sustainability?

In the last year (2019), we have shaped the foundation on our approach to ESG/sustainability-matters, going forward, we will continue to secure that it becomes an integral part of our everyday work throughout our global organization. Our great people are our greatest asset and that’s why we among others things, focus on our people in the ESG work. Read more about our work on ESG/Sustainability.



Do you disclose organic growth?”

Yes, starting from our Q1-report (published 13th of August 2020) we introduce organic growth as a KPI, which excludes businesses that have been acquired in the past year and is adjusted for differences in currency exchange rate.



Why do you have a limited amount of press releases between the quarter from the parent company? Why don’t you disclose release dates for all upcoming titles?

In general, we believe in communicating information that is relevant for all shareholders.

Our investor communication should be transparent, relevant, and restrained. We believe in building a long term business rather than selling shares in the short term. Without limiting our day to day operations, we should educate the financial market about the bigger picture and the strategy going forward. In general, we prefer to communicate through delivery and execution.

Regarding new releases, we do give color about the current quarter when reporting the interim reports. However, to provide exact information about all our releases dates and newly announced products would make it difficult for stakeholders to understand what financially matters for the group. Release dates for upcoming titles will be communicated from our subsidiaries, and Embracer Group will give updates when relevant in the interim reports.



What is your M&A strategy going forward?

Although acqusitive growth has been an important part of creating Embracer Group, we do not need acquisitions to grow in the future. However, we want to continue on the M&A path and add more publishers, studios and IP’s. Apart from achieving further diversification, and thus lowering the operational risk in the group, we believe we can create value by acquiring the right companies at the right price. We believe we can make acquired companies more valuable by enabling them to make more and better games. In other words, we buy to build.
