REASONS FOR THE OFFERING AND USE OF PROCEEDS

TROPHY GAMES intends to list on Nasdaq First North Growth Market to raise capital to further amplify and accelerate the Company’s already strong growth. With the Capital raised through the issuance of the new offer shares, the Company strives to support business operations, new game developments and organizational advancements. The Company aspires to utilize the raised capital for multiple strategic initiatives that will exponentially grow the business as well as increase the market share that the Company possesses. The strategic initiatives include acquisitions of competing games and game studios, new game developments, investments into existing game titles, investments into data science and AI, establishment of game incubator at new office location, as well as increased liquidity for user acquisitions.

 

FINANCIAL EXPECTATIONS

TROPHY GAMES has historically generated high revenue growth rates and grew revenue between 2019 and 2020 by 54,6% from DKK 19.9m to 30.8m. Since initial investment in 2006 by the existing shareholders, the company has been self-financed which has resulted in steady but slightly impaired growth rates. By use of proceeds gained through the initial public offering, the revenue of TROPHY GAMES is expected to expand at a CAGR of 54% in the period 2019 through 2023. The majority of the expected revenue expansion in 2021, 2022 and 2023 can be accredited to the pipeline games that will be released in 2021, two additional games in 2023, as well as strategic acquisitions of game titles. EBITDA in 2020 was DKK 5.5m which is expected to have expanded to 26.1m by 2023.
