MCV speaks to interim CEO Christopher Bell and Finance Director Ben White
GAME has seen its profits tumble 27 per cent. Why has trading been so tough?
Ben White: We’ve been clear with the market about where we expected to come out. We’ve hit our numbers exactly in line with expectations at £90.4 million profit before tax. If you look at the profile, it is the second best trading period we’ve ever had. Like the wider games market, we have seen our revenues come down. We’ve offset the impact of those revenues by gross margin improvement and a little bit of cost savings. On the back of the wider market place, it is a pretty reasonable performance.
