NACON posted 41.1 M€ sales in Q3 2022-23

Over the period, sales of video games and accessories were impacted by the worldwide shortage of consoles and drastic stock management by distributors.

VIDEO GAMES: Catalogue sales (new games) rose by 17.2% to 10.2 M€. Sales for the quarter were boosted by games released in the first half of the year (Vampire The Masquerade® - Swansong, Pro Cycling Manager 2022, Tour De France 2022, SteelrisingTM and Session Skate SimTM) and by the release of WRC Generations on 3 November, which outperformed its predecessor, WCR10, in the first two months following release.

The Back catalogue (games released during previous financial years) once again achieved an excellent performance. Its sales were up 59.5% over the quarter to 8.8 M€.

ACCESSORIES: Sales of accessories came to 20.4 M€, down 41.5% over the quarter. Since the beginning of the year, the shortage of new generation consoles has caused a sharp decline in the global accessories market, leading retailers to be very cautious in their sourcing policy.
Expected trends for the 4th quarter and 2022/23 targets

New publishing releases for the 4th quarter will be sustained with the launch of four games:
- Chef Life and the highly anticipated Blood Bowl®3 will be released on 23 February 2023.
- Clash and Transport Fever 2 Console Edition are scheduled for release on 9 March 2023.

As for Accessories, the end of the console shortages should lead to an improvement in sales over the next few months.

For the whole financial year, despite the later release of several major games, a decline in the Accessories business and the tensions encountered in the supply of new consoles, NACON expects sales and current operating income to be slightly up on the previous year.

Outlook for FY 2023-2024

In FY 2023-2024, NACON will have a wide range of new releases with about twenty games to be launched during the year, including :
- The Lord of the Rings GollumTM, which will be released in the first half of FY 2023-24,
- RoboCop: Rogue City,
- Gangs of Sherwood,
- TestDrive Unlimited Solar Crown.

At the same time, the games released in FY 2022-23 will feed the back catalogue and will mechanically accelerate growth.

The accessories market should rebound thanks to a growing installed, base of new generation consoles and a more favourable base effect.

In view of the above, NACON reaffirms its confidence in its FY 2023-2024 prospects.

Interim report 2022/23 - 15% revenue growth and DKK 145 million operating profit (+25%) for the first half following a challenging second quarter8.2.2023 18:57:07 CET | Press release

ANNOUNCEMENT NO. 234 9 February 2023 Interim report for the first half of 2022/23 15% revenue growth and DKK 145 million operating profit (+25%) for the first half following a challenging second quarter Steen Søndergaard, CEO: “Following a very satisfactory 2021/22 with historically high revenue and operating profit growth rates, revenue for the first half of 2022/23 unfortunately disappointed, despite 15% growth. Second quarter sales of instruments, particularly in the North American market, were challenged by a generally more subdued investment sentiment in our primary business segment, cell-based therapy. Our order intake was mainly impacted by weakened demand from capital-sensitive development companies. On the other hand, we saw continued satisfactory growth in sales of consumables and services. Despite the unfavourable market conditions, our earnings continued to grow. While our market is currently affected by the prevailing macroeconomic environment, we have a strong underlying
