Off the back of aggressive UA spending for Summoners War, Com2uS' sales rise 16% to $97 million

Korean mobile game publisher Com2uS (KOSDAQ:078340) has announced its FY2015 Q2 financials, for the 3 months ending 30 June 2015.

Sales were a record $97 million (108.3 billion KRW), up 16 percent compared to the FY15 Q1 period.

Net profits were $28 million (31.1 billion KRW), up 14 percent quarterly.

As in previous quarters, the global success of especially Summoners War - which recently celebrated its first year anniversary - but also Ace Fishing and Golf Star continues to drive Com2uS' financial performance to new heights.

It's boom times for Com2uS

This ensures that the vast majority of the company's sales - 82 percent - are being generated outside of its domestic market.

During the quarter, regional sales were 44 percent in Asia (excluding Korea), 37 percent in North America, 13 percent in Europe and 6 percent in South America.

More RPGs

Looking forward, Com2uS hopes to use this success as a platform to launch more RPGs; with Dragon Knights, Soul Seeker and East Legend already released and Wonder Tactics due later in 2015.

It will also be continuing with what it calls its "aggressive marketing campaigns" for Summoners War, including new markets, which will be supported with increased language support.

Asia exluding Korea and the US are Com2uS' key markets

Indeed, marketing costs rose 22 percent in the quarter to $18 million, thanks to campaigns in Japan and North America.
