Interim Report January – March 2020

“It has been a unique and challenging quarter for companies around the world with the COVID-19 virus pandemic. We are fortunate to be able to say G5 continued to deliver on its strategy during the first three months of the year, delivering sustainable and profitable growth through our active management and our diversified game portfolio,” said Vlad Suglobov, CEO of G5 Entertainment. “During March we saw a strong increase in overall downloads for our portfolio. We believe this is connected to the introduction of the lockdown policies in numerous countries around the world where our games are available. The increase is quite substantial: we saw a jump of more than 50 percent in one week sequentially at its peak, and so far, the boost looks sustainable and bodes well for the second quarter.”
