An outstanding start of 2016

“2016 has started in an exceptionally strong way for Stillfront, and I look forward to a continued exciting year. Compared with the first quarter of 2015, Stillfront more than doubled sales. Our primary profitability metric, underlying EBITDA, increased 111% and profit before tax amounted to SEK 4.7 million. This growth has been completely organic!

The strong development is primarily based on the success of our German studio Bytro and our Swedish studio Coldwood, not least because of the acclaimed game Unravel.

Stillfront will continue to build on its PLEX strategy, which has proved successful so far. We will strive to accelerate our development further through strategic acquisitions.” says Jörgen Larsson, CEO.
