Gameloft sales revenue up 18% in first nine months of 2009

Strong performances of iPhone titles and in Asia and South America attributed

Gameloft has achieved sales growth of 18 per cent for the first nine months of 2009, recording earnings of EUR 90.2 million for the year so far.

Its latest third quarter sales have been reported at EUR 30.1 million - up 15 per cent on the same quarter in 2008. The company has shown consistent sales growth throughout the year, a result it attributes to its mobile game activity.

Mobile games accounted for 95 per cent of the company's third quarter sales, with the remaining five per cent relating to console game sales.

Europe represented 38 per cent of 2009's revenues so far, North America 33 per cent and the rest of the world 29 per cent. The strongest growth was seen in Asia and South America, where sales increased notably.

Revenue from the company's mobile division increased 17 per cent over the first nine months of 2009, which Gameloft puts down to the success of its games on both the App Store and on Java and Brew formats.

Gameloft is now in "an ideal position", it said, to benefit from the rapid development of digital games on both phones and consoles, as well as initiatives from companies such as Apple, Nokia and Google.
