Keywords Studios (KWS) has completed the acquisition of Wizcorp for JPY120m (£826,000). The Japan-based game developer focuses on mobile technologies, HTML5 in particular and has worked with many of the field’s best-known players such as Square Enix and Bandai Namco. The deal will expand KWS’s operations in Japan, and management said the acquisition was particularly interesting in light of Snap’s (NYSE:SNAP) acquisition of a HTML5-based gaming platform. Broker Numis said it expected to raise its longer-term earnings forecast by 0.8 per cent following the deal. Buy.

Keywords Studios Plc (KWS.L) Announced that it has acquired the entire issued share capital of Wizcorp Inc. ("Wizcorp") for a cash consideration of ¥120 million from Ankama SAS ("Ankama") and Silicon Studio Corporation (the "Sellers"). The acquisition extends Keywords' Engineering Service line by providing a platform for expansion in Japan's games development market, one of the largest in the world. Whilst the business has not been a profit centre under its existing ownership structure, we would expect it to be able to achieve margins at similar levels to Keywords' existing Engineering Service line once we align it with our existing operations and build up its scale.

Structural strength Keywords Studios Keywords Studios looks structurally well placed to continue performing well in an industry where change and innovation are the norm. The company again showed the resilience of its model in FY18, delivering 10.1% l-f-l revenue growth and 53% adjusted EPS growth in the face of considerable industry turbulence. Looking ahead, we see sustained growth from the launch of streaming services by industry majors and the continued shift towards outsourcing. Keywords’ strategy, which has delivered a five-year EPS CAGR of 53%, appears sustainable. As such, we believe that the shares remain set for continued appreciation. Analysts Dan Ridsdale Richard Williamson

RNS Number: 8314 V Keywords Studios PLC 11 April 2019 Correction: The following is a correction to the Final Results announcement for the year ended 31 December 2018 announced at 7 a.m. on 08.04. 19.. ·Group revenue increased by 66% to €250.8 m. ·On a Constant Currency 1 basis, revenue grew to €258.6 m.
Keywords Studios’ (KWS) revenues rose 66 per cent to €251m during 2018, and were up 10.1 per cent on a like-for-like basis, or 14.9 per cent “without the expected drag in the year from the VMC acquisition”. VMC has now been integrated across four service lines and five studio locations ahead of schedule. Like-for-like growth was also impacted by the ‘Fortnite effect’ – denoting the disruption caused to other games supported by Keywords by the success of the ‘Fortnite’ game. Still, six out of the group’s seven service lines enjoyed a strong underlying performance. Localisation testing was the exception; some projects expected at the end of last year were delayed into 2019. Overall, the first quarter of the current year was in line with bosses’ expectations. Recommendation under review.
Keywords Studios, which provides technical services to the global video games industry, has announced a 65% increase in full-year adjusted pre-tax profits to €37.9m on revenues 66% higher at €251m. Chief executive Andrew Day says the “phenomenally successful” free-to-play game Fortnite, which attracted 200 million players during the year, disrupted some games supported by Keywords. This led some clients to reduce their spending, terminate games or cease trading, but he believes the market is “more settled now,” with Fortnite and other new games having become an “integral part of it”. Keywords also now undertakes a “considerable amount of work” on Fortnite.
