PopCap proves to be a good buy for EA, so far

1 min read

Last year, EA acqiored PopCap for a substantial sum. PopCap’s first financial results following the acquisition suggest EA did the right thing.

Accoding to its financial report, PopCap’s revenue has increased 30 per cent year-on-year. This doesn’t necessarily mean profit was also up, but it does mean PopCap is selling more stuff.

EA’s digital revenue, thanks in part to the acquisitions of PopCap and Firemint, is also well up with a 40 per cent increase to $274 million in the quarter. In the same quarter last year, it was $195 million. The other big success story for EA was The Sims: FreePlay, which was the top-grossing iPad app for the year.
