King Digital Entertainment plc Reports Unaudited Consolidated Financial Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015

King Digital Entertainment plc reported unaudited consolidated financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported revenue of $569.513 million against $606.709 million a year ago. Profit before tax was $210.876 million against $161.211 million a year ago. Profit was $164.125 million against $127.199 million a year ago. The increase was primarily due to higher adjusted EBITDA and lower net revenue deferrals and income tax expense, which were partially offset by lower foreign exchange gains, and increases in both acquisition-related and share-based and other equity-related compensation expenses. Diluted earnings per share was $0.51 against $0.41 a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities was $162.556 million against $67.887 million a year ago. Purchases of intangible assets were $2.686 million against $2.102 million a year ago. Purchase of property, plant and equipment was $5.008 million against $6.301 million a year ago. Adjusted revenue was $569.782 million against $607.574 million a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA was $250.191 million against $248.591 million a year ago, due to higher gross bookings and lower marketing expenses, which was partially offset by higher payments to platform partners and VAT sales tax. Adjusted profit was $196.660 million against $187.880 million a year ago. Adjusted EPS was $0.61 against $0.61 a year ago. First quarter 2015 profit increased by $37 million or 29% compared to first quarter 2014. The increase was primarily due to foreign exchange gains and lower share-based and other equity-related comp, which were partially offset by higher income tax and acquisition-related expenses.
