Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) also hiked 81% year-on-year to €80.6m, while profit jumped from €31.7m to €62.1m. The full-year growth comes after a positive fourth quarter, during which revenue increased 48% year-on-year to €50.7m.
Martin Carlesund, president and chief executive of Evolution, said: “Looking back on 2017, it is easy to say that it was an exceptional year in many ways.”
“But that does not give us reason to take anything for granted – on the contrary, we must continue to work hard every day to maintain our position in the market,” he added.
“On the whole, with new studios and exciting product launches on the cards, we see good prospects to continue strengthening our business in 2018, with a clear focus on profitable growth,” Carlesund concluded.
