MAG reached its highest quarterly revenue in company history with 81.4 MSEK thanks to improved ARPDAU across its portfolio of games. Net sales are up 26%, and ARPDAU increased by 84% compared to the same period last year.

- The Group's net sales for the period were 81,381 KSEK (64,838 KSEK), an increase of 26% compared to the same period the previous year
- EBITDA for the period was 15,252 KSEK (3,404 KSEK)
- Adjusted EBITDA for the period was 15,926 KSEK (3,611 KSEK) (adjustments for EBITDA relate to effects from acquisition costs and social contribution costs from revaluation of option programs)
- The Group's game contribution for the period was 48,912 KSEK (30,710 KSEK), an increase of 59% compared to the same period the previous year
- Average revenue per daily active user (ARPDAU) for the period was 5.5 US cents (3.0 US cents), an increase of 84% compared to the same period the previous year
