New client growth in the US, UK and Europe has helped Stockholm listed igaming content provider NetEnt AB post a FY 2015 revenue increase of SEK 1.1 billion (£910 million) up 34% on FY 2014’s SEK 850 million.
Publishing its year-end 2015 performance (period January – December 2015), NetEnt governance recorded corporate earnings of SEK 401 million (£33 million) with a profit after tax of SEK 374 million (£30 million), up 54% on FY 2014’s SEK 243 million.
Posting top-line growth on all key metrics, NetEnt governance detailed that 2015 performance had been driven by new commercial agreements as the company signed 37 new casino content partners during the year and launched 43 new license agreements.
In 2015, NetEnt announced new content partnerships with Gala Coral UK, Gamesys, Tropicana and Grupo Codere (Spain) expanding its games partnership portfolio. New client acquisitions were further boosted as the company was able to maintain an operating margin of 35% (2014’s 30%).
