A strong quarter
“Q3 revenue amounted to SEK 65 million, an increase of 34% compared to the same quarter the previous year. This is the highest turnover in a quarter for MAG since the company went public. Compared to Q2, revenue grew by 28% with the combination of several positive factors leading to the rapid growth. The EBITDA in Q3 lands at MSEK 3.4 compared to MSEK 0.5 during the same quarter the previous year,” said MAG Interactive CEO Daniel Hasselberg.
“During the quarter, we had the opportunity to increase the investment in user acquisition for our most recently launched games, Wordzee and New QuizDuel, which led to increased turnover in that part of the portfolio as well. The cost of user acquisition amounted to SEK 26 million in the quarter, which is SEK 12 million more than in Q2. We see increased investment in user acquisition as something fundamentally positive as it lays the foundation for future growth and profits.
“With a strong quarter behind us, we now look forward with excitement to how New QuizDuel and Wordzee will continue to develop during 2020 and beyond.”
