Q&A

Why doesn’t the company provide financial forecasts for the future?

Since our listing at Nasdaq First North Growth Market in November 2016, we have had the same process in how we handle analysts according to market practice. We regularly have reconciliations with analysts, mainly in connection with interim reports. Analysts play an essential role in the market, especially for us who have a business with many different revenue streams that are generated by a well-diversified product portfolio and because we do not provide financial forecasts ourselves.

There have been requests asking us to provide financial forecasts to be even clearer, but we conclude that it would not be beneficial to the company, mainly for commercial reasons. To us, our subsidiaries must decide and control the communication regarding new games and release dates first, rather than being controlled by the parent company and indirectly the financial market. By that, we are convinced about a better long-term return.

We are continuing to work with the market to find more relevant KPI´s.
