NetEnt By the Numbers

Strong Global Industry Positioning
In addition to the numbers, NetEnt recapped several moves it has made to strengthen its position within the industry. Notably for Canadian players, this included obtaining a license to operate in BC, Canada. Other notable international moves included launching games in the Serbian market and offering table games in Spain.
On the cash flow side, NetEnt enjoyed growth in a wide variety of places including Denmark, Belgium, Spain, and New Jersey’s regulated market within the United States.
Upward Trend Expected to Continue
Despite all of the good news, the most exciting was the expectation that growth will continue well into the future.
Per Eriksson, NetEnt’s President and CEO, had this to say about the results and overall future of the company:
”The quarter featured continued solid growth, higher profitability and a strong cash flow. The most important growth drivers were mobile games, Great Britain and Italy. During June, mobile games contributed more than half of our revenues while Britain was our largest geographic market for the quarter. For the second half of 2017, we see conditions for continued solid growth.”
