Games Workshop posts ‘astonishing’ performance as revenue and profits increase

Games Workshop, the fantasy games manufacturer and retailer, has posted an ‘astonishing’ trading performance in its full year results to 29 May, with its revenue and pre-tax profits both exceeding expectations.

Revenues at the Nottingham firm have risen to £414.8m – up from £369.5m last year – while profits before tax have increased from £150.9m to £165.5m.

In a further update this morning (26 July), the company said its shareholders will receive a dividend of 90p per share off the back of the performance.

Kevin Rountree, CEO of Games Workshop said: “It’s been another astonishing year. I once again take great comfort that some things don’t change – our staff and customers love Warhammer. I thank you all for helping make this another very successful year.”

Rountree noted that factors relating to Brexit had posed significant challenges for Games Workshop, but that the company had managed to weather the storm by selling more miniatures than ever before.

He added: “The business and the Warhammer hobby are in great shape.”
