Angry Birds’ Rovio doubles its revenues

Business has been good for the Angry Birds developer as the company’s revenues doubled year-on-year in 2012.

The studio’s revenue was €152.2m, up 101 per cent from 2011’s €75.6m.Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) grew by 64 per cent to €76.8m.

2012 was another record-breaking year for Rovio. We doubled our revenue with an EBIT margin of 50 per cent, more than doubled our headcount, established new offices and a New Business Ventures unit,” said Rovio CFO Herkko Soininen.

Like the year before, merchandising accounted for a large chunk of the company’s revenue. Rovio’s Consumer Products business unit’s revenue showed a yearly growth of over 300 per cent, and made up almost half of the company’s total revenue.
