Galaxy Gaming sees losses mount

Written By Janice Doughtrey

Galaxy Gaming, the company that manufactures mobile devices running on Android OS, has reported a net loss of NT$1.5 billion for the quarter ended March 31, 2018. Despite noting “excellent quarter”, the company said it will use NT$2 billion in cash reserves to fund future development initiatives. Galaxy Gaming is a subsidiary of South Korean tech giant Samsung Electronics Co Ltd. The company currently manufactures Android-powered smartphones and tablets and is planning to enter the market for gaming devices. This report follows an announcement from Samsung earlier this year that it would discontinue production of Galaxy Tab S3 tablet after poor sales performance.

Galaxy Gaming, a Canadian video game company, releases earnings report after reporting ‘excellent quarter’

Galaxy Gaming released its earnings report after reporting an “excellent quarter” in spite of mounting losses. The company saw a decrease in revenue and net income, but noted that it was still profitable thanks to its strong player retention rates. However, the company warned that it expects continued losses due to increased competition from established video game companies and increased spending on new technology by consumers. Galaxy Gaming CEO Tim Pritchard attributed the losses to increased spending on new games, platform updates, and marketing expenses.

Galaxy Gaming sees losses mount despite noting ‘excellent quarter’

Despite announcing an “excellent quarter,” Galaxy Gaming saw its losses mount in the third quarter of 2019. The company attributed these losses to increased marketing expenses, which it said were necessary in order to grow its user base. Overall, Galaxy Gaming reported a net loss of $8 million for the three-month period ending September 30th, compared to a net loss of $4 million in the same period last year. During this time frame, the company’s monthly active userbase increased by 16%. Despite these positive numbers, Galaxy Gaming’s stock prices have decreased 14% since the company’s earnings release.

One reason for these losses could be that despite reaching new users, many of these users are not spending money on games or other digital content. For example, according to analysts at Wedbush Securities, 43% of users who engaged with Galaxy Gaming in Q3 did not spend any money within 24 hours after engaging with the platform. In comparison, only 18% of users on Facebook and 13% of users on Google Play spent any money within 24 hours after engaging with those platforms.

Despite noting these challenges and concerns, CEO Haipo Yang remains optimistic about the future of Galaxy Gaming. He believes that as more people become familiar with the platform and learn how to use it effectively, they will start spending money on games and other digital content.
