Stillfront: Stable Volumes, High Loyalty
Stillfront Group AB (“Stillfront”) currently has twelve game titles, of which eleven are online games. In addition, there is a number of long tail games. Stillfront continuously monitors the number of active users of the online games on a monthly basis (MAU – Monthly Active User) and daily basis (DAU – Daily Active User).
During the third quarter of 2016, the average number of MAUs was 222,970. The number of DAUs was 62,781 on average during the quarter. The corresponding figures for the third quarter of 2015 were 209,377 MAU and 55,857 DAUs. Thus, the third quarter 2016 achieved an increase of 6% regarding the number of MAU and 12% regarding the number of DAUs as compared with the third quarter of 2015.
During the second quarter of 2016 the average number of MAUs was 224,446 and the average number of DAUs was 69,494. During the third quarter, which is the weakest quarter due to seasonality, the number of MAUs decreased by 1%, and the number of DAUs decreased by 10% as compared with the second quarter of 2016.
The above numbers pertain to the seven largest games as ranked by revenues, i.e. Call of War, Supremacy 1914, New World Empires, ManagerZone Football, ManagerZone Hockey, DragonRealms and GemStone IV.
Jörgen Larsson, CEO, Stillfront Group, comments
” I am happy to note that our games are very attractive to our players. I am especially pleased with the player loyalty during the quarter, a quarter which normally is weak based on seasonality. Especially the paying players demonstrate great loyalty. I see this as an acknowledgement that our games offer entertainment to our players for a long period of time, which is exactly in line with Stillfront’s strategy,” Jörgen Larsson, CEO, Stillfront Group comments.
