Quote from the CEO

“Stillfront demonstrated strong performance in the second quarter. Group revenues amounted to 1,192 (480) MSEK and the adjusted EBIT margin amounted to 39 (35) percent. Revenues benefitted from strong organic growth across our portfolio of games as well as growth from the acquired studios Kixeye, Storm8 and Candywriter. Following the recent acquisitions, the product mix has further improved through the new vertical Casual & Mash-up. The positive development in the second quarter was partly driven by effects of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, which has led to accelerated gaming activity in all regions as well as an increased amount of paying users. The marketing campaigns during April and May performed very well. In June, we have seen a normalizing trend, but our marketing investments are still on record levels and yielding positive results. In June, we completed a directed share issue and raised proceeds of 1,200 MSEK which enables us to act on more opportunities and to further accelerate Stillfront´s growth agenda. The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic will continue to have an impact on the Group´s performance due to the strong inflow of new users in the second quarter as well as increased activity within existing user bases, even though we expect a more normalized pattern including seasonality effects for the second half of the year.”

Jörgen Larsson, CEO, Stillfront
