UK: Gaming Realms shares surge on strong first-half growth Martin Gamble, Shares · September 13, 2021 at 6:43 pm Shares in developer and licensor of mobile games company Gaming Realms spun 8.3% higher to 37.9p on Monday after reporting 50% growth in first-half revenue to £7.7 million. Strong growth was driven by a 73% increase in licensing revenue to £5.8 million as 26 new partners went live through 2020 and a further 11 in the first half of the year, while four new Slingo games were released. Around half of the increase (£1.3 million) was due to an increase in brand revenues with the rest split between increased content and organic growth from existing partners. Meanwhile the group’s social publishing business grew revenues by 7% to £1.9 million. Gaming Realms operates a business-to-business revenue model selling its unique Slingo game genre and other games through major gaming distributors, operators, and consumer brands.
