The dividend is expected to be paid on March 24, 2015. The company reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported revenue of $545,617,000 against $601,715,000 for the same period in the last year. Profit before tax was $204,084,000 against $206,829,000 for the same period in the last year. Profit was $140,617,000 against $159,246,000 for the same period in the last year.

Fourth quarter 2014 adjusted EBITDA represented an increase of $21 million, or 10%, compared to third quarter 2014 primarily due to higher gross bookings as well as a funded game development project completed in the period, partially offset by higher cost of services related to the increase in gross bookings, a planned increase in marketing spend to support newly launched games as well as an increase in research and development as it continues to focus on expanding and enhancing its game portfolio. CapEx in the fourth quarter of 2014 was $17 million, which is higher than third quarter primarily due to facilities build-out to support its growing staff. For the year, the company reported revenue of $2,260,241,000 against $1,884,301,000 for the same period in the last year. Profit before tax was $768,278,000 against $714,275,000 for the same period in the last year. Profit was $574,851,000 against $567,594,000 for the same period in the last year.

Net cash generated from operating activities was $661.3 million against $685.5 million for the same period in the last year. The company expects gross bookings for the first quarter of 2015 to be between $575 million and $600 million, and EBITDA margin to be consistent with past performance at approximately 40%. Overall, for 2015, the company expects EBITDA margin to be lower than 2014 due to the changes in VAT rules as well as investments in R&D and marketing in the new genres that will take place in 2015.
