As announced, thanks to the strong momentum of its video game business, Nacon achieved good revenue in Q1 2022-2023 at €42.4 million, up 25.8%.

VIDEO GAMES

Game sales reached €27.6 million, up 126.2%.

Several games were released during the period under review, including the highly anticipated Vampire: The Masquerade® – The Swan Song title, which performed well, as well as 2022 Professional Cycling Manager and Tour de France 2022, both of which recorded higher sales than last year’s editions. Catalog activity (new games) jumped to €14.9 million compared to €3.1 million the previous year.

The Back Catalog (games from previous years) also rose sharply to €12.7 million, up 38.7%. It benefits from the entry of Daedalic Entertainment into the Group’s scope of consolidation and the signature of numerous deals on new platforms.

ACCESSORIES

Turnover amounted to €14.0 million, down 31.8%. Over the period, this activity continued to be penalized by a high base effect, a shortage of consoles and a readjustment of inventory levels across the distribution sector.

In this context, Nacon nevertheless gained market share in the United States in the gaming headset segment with its premium RIG 800 pro and 300 pro ranges released in recent months.
