Summary of the period November 2020 – February 2021:
Comment from the CEO in summary
“We are very proud to share that the revenues in Q2 grew by 44% to 72.6 MSEK compared to the same period last year. The growth was primarily boosted by continued improvements in the average revenue per daily active user (ARPDAU). In Q2 the ARPDAU was 4.8 cents which is 67% higher than the same period last year. The key driver for the ARPDAU improvement is an increase in In-App Purchase revenue (IAP) - which in Q2 was 74% higher than a year ago.
EBITDA reached 10.3 MSEK in Q2 which is more than doubled compared to a year ago. We were also able to generate a record high Game Contribution of 42 MSEK, 31% higher than last year.
During the first two months as part of MAG, Apprope generated more than 7 MSEK in revenues. We can already see clear synergy effects in terms of game analytics and user acquisition efficiency, having quickly integrated Apprope’s games with MAG’s central analytics platform. We aim to continue to grow their biggest game Word Mansion during 2021 based on great collaboration between our teams.
Wordzee and New QuizDuel continue to develop at a high pace. On March 8 we launched the live show QuizDuel Live in New QuizDuel to the German market. We have established a number of commercial partners for the live mode and are now regularly running sponsored shows. Wordzee has an ARPDAU that is significantly stronger than any other MAG game. In late March we launched the biggest update in the game since Wordzee’s initial release to give the players a much deeper sense of progression in the game.
Looking back at the last couple of years we have seen a strong and steady development in the right direction for MAG. We have launched better games, operated the live games more efficiently and recruited great talent that will help us improve even further. Thanks to the launch of QuizDuel Live combined with the recent updates of Wordzee and the potential we see in Word Mansion there is a lot to be excited about when moving into Q3”, says Daniel Hasselberg, CEO of MAG Interactive.
