Tougher regulatory requirements see NetEnt report Q4 2017 revenue & earnings lag

Publishing a corporate update, Stockholm-listed industry games developer NetEnt has detailed that its Q4 2017 results (period ending 31 December) will ‘lag behind market forecasts’.

Updating stakeholders, NetEnt governance expects to deliver Q4 2017 corporate revenues of SEK 419 million (Q4 target: SEK 447 million), combined with a period EBIT of circa SEK 150 million (Q4 target: SEK 170 million).

The firm’s revised Q4 2017 expectations, follows a bull run of trading results for NetEnt, which has delivered consistent quarterly growth throughout its history as a Stockholm-listed enterprise, focusing growth on regulated markets and expanding its commercial pipeline.
