Square Enix Holdings Co., Ltd. Announces Financial Results for the Three-month Period Ended June 30, 2022
SQUARE ENIX HOLDINGS CO., LTD. (the "Company") today announced consolidated financial results for the three-month period ended June 30, 2022. The Company is listed on the First Section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange, with the stock code "9684," and prepares its financial statements according to the Japan GAAP.
Due to decreased earnings from new titles, the HD (High-Definition) Game sub-segment's net sales for the three-month period ended June 30, 2022 declined compared to the same period of the previous fiscal year, which had included the release of "OUTRIDERS" and "NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139..."
In the MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online) Game sub-segment, net sales rose versus the same period of the previous fiscal year due to growth in the number of monthly paying subscribers for "FINAL FANTASY XIV."
While "ECHOES of MANA" got off to a solid start following its April launch, net sales in the Games for Smart Devices/PC Browser sub-segment declined compared to the same period of the previous fiscal year, in part because of weak performances from existing titles.
In the Amusement segment, net sales and operating income for the three-month period ended June 30, 2022 rose compared to the same period of the previous fiscal year due to a significant year-on-year increase in same-store sales.
In the Publication segment, net sales and operating income for the three-month period ended June 30, 2022 declined compared to the same period of the previous fiscal year due to year-on-year declines in both digital and print sales.
In the Merchandising segment, sales of new merchandise based on key intellectual properties were brisk, but the sales mix changed. This and other factors resulted in a year-on-year rise in net sales but a decline in operating income.
