In SEGA’s latest financial report, the blue brand shows some signs of progress in its financial situation. The Entertainment Contents division earned $337 million in revenue in the first quarter, which is up by 4%. The same time last year the division made a $10.5 million loss, but it has reduced that loss to $5.9 million since then.
When it comes to the sales of packaged games, SEGA moved 1.83 million units, up from 1.7 million the year before. The company overall made a loss of $63.6 million in the first quarter, which is down from a $41 million profit last year. In addition, the company’s revenue dropped by 41% to $427 million. SEGA explains the drop was due to its Pachislot machines, where sales fell 83% due to a lack of new releases.
When it comes to SEGA’s future, the second quarter will see a larger number of new releases in both the Entertainment and Pachislot divisions. SEGA is currently in a state of transition, so hopefully the company will see more positive change in the months to come. What do you hope to see from SEGA in the future?
