Jack Kent | February 08, 2016
US-based mobile games publisher Glu Mobile reported $61m Q4 2015 revenues, down 16.3% on the same period in 2014. Profitability also took a hit as it ended Q4 with a $3m net loss compared with $1.4m net income in Q4 2014. The publisher’s full year results are more positive. Its $249.9m 2015 total revenues were up 12% on 2014. IHS estimates that the overall mobile games market grew by 27% year-on-year in 2015, so Glu is being outpaced by the rest of the market. Glu has also made two investments in new games developers and extended its roster of celebrity mobile games partnerships.
