Investment summary

In its Q321 trading update, CI Games confirmed strong Q321 revenues of c PLN30.2m and PAT of c PLN9.8m, a 32.5% net margin. As its seasonally strongest quarter, we anticipate Q421 trading to be similar to Q321. We have therefore raised our FY21 estimates, with revenues rising 12% to PLN105.0m and a 32.5% margin giving PAT of PLN34.1m. CI Games also announced a new survival game for the PC and console on the Unreal Engine 5, with the IP to be owned by CI Games. We see this potential third franchise as a necessary step as CI Games invests in broadening its games portfolio.

Industry outlook

Market analyst, Newzoo, estimates that 3bn gamers are set to generate global revenues of c US$176bn in 2021, a fall of 1.1% after annual growth of more than 20% in 2020, driven by lockdown demand for content. From 2021–24 more regular growth of 7.6% is expected to return, building to a total market size of over US$219bn by 2024. Long-term demand for games is underpinned by strong secular and technology trends.
