Game Group acquires Gamestation from Blockbuster UK https://www.proactiveinvestors.co.uk/companies/news/664/game-group-acquires-gamestation-from-blockbuster-uk-1073.html
Gamestation is a video games retailer employing over 1,800 staff in 217 stores across the UK. Game Group said it planned to keep the Gamestation brand, and that it expected the acquisition would be earnings enhancing and deliver synergies of approximately £7 million per annum by the second full year post acquisition. In the year ended 31 December 2006, Gamestation generated earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation of £6.5 million on revenues of £203.5 million.

Shares in Game Group rose 6% to 163.5p.

Game Group surprises on the upside https://www.proactiveinvestors.co.uk/companies/news/450/game-group-surprises-on-the-upside-0760.html

This helped pushed the shares higher in early trading and capped off an impressive run over the past two months and a 3 year battle to recover from a devastating profit warning after the 2003/2004 Christmas trading period.

Equally impressive was Game Group's ability to increase margins over expectations when most retailers are suffering from margin erosion and constant pricing pressure from the large supermarket groups. The company expects to post a profit before tax in the region of £28-£30 million - exceeding market expectations for the year ending 31st January, 2007.

Peter Lewis, Chairman added: "Our Christmas sales performance was excellent particularly given the very strong comparatives for the previous year when the Microsost Xbox 360 launched. This year there was strong demand for all formats, in particular for the Nintendo DS Lite and the most recent market entrant, the Nintendo Wii, which launched in Europe on 8 December 2006. We have traded well and gained good momentum throughout this year which has reinforced our position as Europe's leading specialist retailer of pc and video games. We look forward to the much anticipated launch of the Sony Playstation 3 in 2007."
