Hamburg, 18 September, 2019 - gamigo AG ("gamigo", Anleihe ISIN: SE0011614445), one of the leading publishers of mobile and online games in Europe and North America, today announced that it acquired a minority stake of less than 5% in Phoenix Games Holding. The companies will leverage synergies and growth opportunities in mobile game development and publishing, user acquisition and technical innovation.
Phoenix Games is a family of gaming companies and was founded by games industry entrepreneur veteran Klaas Kersting. Phoenix Games is a holding company focusing on acquiring and maximizing the potential of mobile gaming development studios by offering its own expertise and enabling cooperation between teams. Phoenix concentrates on the development and publishing of mobile games and recently acquired the British studio Well Played Games.
"A strong belief in the power of collaboration goes right to the core of Phoenix, so we are excited to welcome yet more strategic expertise into the family with this partnership", said Klaas Kersting, CEO of Phoenix Games. "There are clear strategic synergies between Phoenix, gamigo and the companies associated to each that will help us to deliver even more expertise and upside to our growing family of developers."
gamigo AG has acquired a minority stake in Phoenix Games Holding and is confident that this cooperation will enable it to leverage the potential of the growing mobile games sector even more effectively.
"With this partnership, we strengthen our expertise and foothold in the mobile games market. Also we are convinced that there are several synergies between Phoenix and gamigo, such as launching new games and customer acquisition, that will lead to additional growth and earnings of both companies.", said Remco Westermann, CEO of gamigo AG.
Gamigo continues to focus on inorganic growth through acquisitions of companies and assets and takes advantage of the market consolidation opportunities. In addition, gamigo also increasingly focuses on organic growth. In the second half of 2019, gamigo has 3 game launches as well as several major content updates. In the Media / Advertising segment, the focus is on organic growth. In addition to its positive operating cash flow and freely available cash of over 20 million euros from the bond issued on Nasdaq Stockholm, gamigo has retained Pareto Securities AB to explore further financing -equity and non-equity- options to support further organic and non-organic growth.
The gamigo business model, that combines organic and anorganic growth and focuses on using synergies via integration and scale, shows good results. While the total gaming market shows an annual average growth of app. 11% per year, gamigo had over the past 4 and ½ years an average revenue growth of 32% per year. The EBITDA margin has over this period increased to current between 25% and 30% and also the earnings before interest and taxes, EBIT, consistently showed a positive trend reaching 11% of revenues in the first half of 2019 with a further upward trend. Based on these past results, in combination with many acquisition targets being available as well as organic growth opportunities, and further efficiencies that are realized with larger scale, the board of gamigo expects in line with past development continuous further revenue CAGR for the next 3-5 years of 25% - 30% in combination with an EBITDA margin of 25% - 30% and an EBIT margin of 15% - 20%.

Aves One AG: Kursziel 13,60 €
Die Aves One AG ist auch in der Corona-Krise als Bestandshalter von langlebigen Logistik-Assets mit langfristigen Mietverträgen gut aufgestellt. Das Unternehmen hat als Guidance einen Umsatz und ein EBITDA mindestens auf Vorjahresniveau verkündet. Unseres Erachtens sollte dies auch ohne Zukäufe gut machbar sein, da die im abgelaufenen Geschäftsjahr 2019 erworbenen Assets bereits zu einer höheren Umsatzbasis führen sollten. Auf Basis unseres DCF-Modells haben wir ein Kursziel in Höhe von 13,60 € ermittelt und vergeben ein KAUFEN-Rating.
