Comment from the CEO in summary
"In total, the revenue in the quarter grew by 23% landing at SEK 50.5 million with an EBITDA of just over SEK 5 million. We continue to see our multiplayer games grow. Revenues from them in Q2 are 51% higher than the corresponding period last year, and these games now turn over more revenue than the entire business did a year ago.
We are in a good position as a company today. With Wordzee and New QuizDuel, the company has two new products that we expect to be able to scale with user acquisition and contribute to our profits over time, in addition to the stable portfolio that we continue to optimize. Word Domination is in the middle of its growth journey, with subscriptions now accounting for 20% of in-app purchases, and where we expect increased revenue. Looking ahead, we also have a pipeline of game concepts in various phases of development that can create new opportunities for the company", says Daniel Hasselberg, CEO of MAG Interactive.
