G5 Entertainment, HipSoft Team Up To Bring Build-a-lot Games To iOS and Android Platforms

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA October 19, 2011 – Your virtual world of real-estate empires is about to expand. G5 Entertainment has announced that it is teaming up with the well-known developers at HipSoft to bring the latest Build-a-lot games to both iOS and Android platforms.

Award winning Build-a-lot has become one of the most popular casual games on the market today, selling over one million copies on PC, and achieving tens of millions of downloads. It has spent more than 5,840 days (equaling more than 16 years) in the Top 10 Charts of leading portals.

The Build-a-lot games are based upon the idea of creating, upgrading, and selling the houses of your dreams all while turning ever higher profits. The game’s objectives are to meet a series of tasks on each level before advancing on to the next more complex one. The better you get, the more you can build with more options, resources, and ever more expansive houses, keeping players engaged and coming back to see what new mansion, castle, or homestead they can create.

The game will take advantage of the iOS and Android platforms, allowing the gameplay to be enjoyed by using simple on-screen touches and finger swipes -- as well as their imagination. With dozens of levels, settings, and sizes of houses ranging from hovels to castles, this will no doubt set a new benchmark for creative gameplay, just as Build-a-lot has continued to do over the years on both PC and Mac.

“We’re pleased to be teaming up with HipSoft on such a popular franchise, and are excited to bring it to iOS and Android,” said Vlad Suglobov, CEO of G5 Entertainment.  “HipSoft established the casual city builder genre with their Build-a-lot games, and we’re thrilled to bring these games to the larger mobile audience.”

“Our team is really proud of what the Build-a-lot franchise has done so far,” said Bryan Bouwman at HipSoft, “We look forward to working alongside G5 Entertainment on bringing our games to new platforms and audiences.”

G5 Entertainment specializes in bringing adventure and strategy games, including hidden object and time management games, to the mobile market. The company has garnered over 23 million installs across iOS and Android platforms and last month alone it has reached four million downloads.

2011 forecast update, 2012 guidance

G5 Entertainment updates its January-September 2011 result forecast to 31.2 MKr revenue, 11 MKr operating result, and 1.26 Kr EPS, which is in line with previously announced forecast of 31 MKr / 11 MKr / 1.26 Kr, respectively. This forecast corresponds to 112% revenue growth and 88% operating result growth compared to the same period of 2010.

The management keeps the forecast for full year 2011 at 47 MKr revenue with 16.5 MKr operating result and EPS of 1.9 Kr, as communicated previously. This forecast corresponds to achieving 106% revenue growth and 88% operating result growth, compared to full year 2010.

The group is using the proceeds from new issue completed in late August to invest in content acquisition and product development, and expand its marketing capacity to handle more game releases in Q4 2011 and 2012. As the development cycle for the group’s games ranges from 3 to 6 months, and for new original games could be even longer, this investment can positively reflect on the group’s results already in Q4 2011, with the major effect expected in 2012.

The management announces that the group’s goal for year 2012 is 87 MKr revenue with 30 MKr operating result and EPS of 3.2 Kr. This is a forward-looking statement, and the actual result can be both above and below this forecast, depending on the performance of the group’s games and certain risk factors detailed in the group’s quarterly and annual reports.

Q3 highlights:

  • In 3 months after the launch of G5’s games on Android Market, they were downloaded over 4.6 million times. Download numbers and revenue from Android Market keeps growing.
  • Virtual City for Android reached #23 Top Grossing App position in US Android Market and Top 10 Grossing App positions in EU Android Markets. Other G5 games released on Android Market have also achieved Top 50 and Top 100 Grossing App positions in many countries.
  • In only 3 months after the launch of G5’s games on Android Market, G5 is arguably the largest casual game publisher on Android Market, by downloads and Top Grossing positions.
  • The total number of downloads on iOS and Android (not counting updates) is now over 23 million.
  • Virtual City Playground for iPad, a group’s first take on freemium business model, became #1 Top Grossing game in 15 countries, Top 10 Grossing game in 59 countries, and Top 50 Grossing game in 75 countries, within one month after the release. The game’s Highest Top Grossing iPad ranks are similar to or even slightly better than the ranks of Zynga’s CityVille on iPad. (Virtual City Playground ranks: http://www.appannie.com/virtual-city-playground-hd/ranking/#view=best-grossing-ranks, CityVille Hometown ranks: http://www.appannie.com/cityville-hometown/ranking/#view=best-grossing-ranks&device=ipad)
  • The number of G5’s YouTube channel video views has surpassed 1 million, and then surpassed 1.25 million views a few days after.

In Q4 2011, G5’s goal is to release a new game on iOS and Android every week on average, and the group also plans a number of releases on Mac. The lineup for Q4 includes Virtual City 2: Paradise Resort for PC, Mac, iOS, and Android; Virtual City Playground for iPhone and Android platforms, and many other games. To date, the group has released 47 games in 2011, and it is on track to release a total of 80 games before the end of the year.

New growth opportunities with strategic investment from Traction

G5 Entertainment announces that it has signed an agreement with the investment company Traction AB, according to which G5 Entertainment AB is going to issue 580,426 new shares, and Traction is going to purchase these shares from the company at the price of 21,5 Kr per share, for a total amount of 12,5 MKr.

Vlad Suglobov, CEO and board member of G5 Entertainment AB, comments: “The opportunities ahead of G5 are much larger than the company is at the moment. Even though the company is showing fast organic growth and is cash flow positive, there’s an opportunity to be more aggressive to deliver more value to shareholders. This is why the board has decided to accept what we believe is relatively small dilution to raise more capital which is going to be used to scale the company’s business model in order to increase revenue and earnings. As the development cycle for company’s products is 4 to 6 months, the management expects to see the positive effect of additional investment already in 2011, with major impact planned for 2012. The investment in new products will go to the balance sheet and is not going to affect income statement in negative way. The management is confident that increased investment in new products will more than compensate for the dilution taken, already in 2011.”

Following the closing of the transaction, the board of G5 Entertainment AB will summon an extraordinary general meeting in the company with the proposal to appoint Peter Benson, Director at Traction, to the board of directors of G5 Entertainment AB.

Peter has previously worked as a financial journalist at Dagens Industri, owner and editor of Börsveckan and as a founder and CEO of Pyr Invest, a private investment company.

Johan Wrang, Chairman of G5 Entertainment AB, comments: “We are glad to have Traction as investor in G5. Our companies’ management philosophies are similar, and the investment comes at the moment when G5 knows how to put extra capital to use in order to grow business more aggressively. G5’s game publishing and development business is growing together with the underlying market of smartphones and tablet computers. The company is publicly listed in Sweden since October 2006, and on Aktietorget since November 2008. While the board considers Aktietorget an exceptional listing platform for entrepreneurial companies, we also see the advantages of bringing the company to the regulated market, and we may decide to do so already in 2012. We would be glad to see Peter Benson on the board of the company as it prepares for this change and works to raise its profile among Scandinavian investors.”

Peter Benson, Director in Traction, comments: “Every once in a while you come across truly impressive young companies with both an excellent management and great growth opportunities. I am convinced G5 is exactly such a company and that the future looks very promising.”

In an effort to perform the transaction at the fair market price, the share price chosen for the transaction is equal to the weighed average share price for 30 calendar days preceding the day when the deal was signed – 1st of July. After the closing of the transaction, which is scheduled to happen on August 1st 2011 the latest, the total number of shares in the company is going to be 8,000,000. Traction will own 7,26% of the outstanding shares of G5 Entertainment AB. The board of G5 Entertainment AB has decided in favor of direct share issue in order to provide the company with the expansion capital in timely manner and with minimum costs. The authorization from the annual general meeting held on June 7th 2011 is going to be used to issue new shares.
