Electronic Arts Reports Q2 FY14 Financial Results

Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) today announced preliminary financial results for its second fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2013.

“EA’s strong second quarter was driven by great title launches, continued digital growth, and financial discipline,” said Chief Executive Officer Andrew Wilson. “While we have made good progress in the first half of the year, we remain focused on executing our FY14 plan and delivering a full slate of amazing games and services to players on current and next-generation consoles, mobile, and PC.”

“We exceeded our revenue and EPS guidance in the second quarter through a combination of delivering on revenue, and managing our costs,” said Chief Financial Officer Blake Jorgensen. “We are reaffirming our annual non-GAAP net revenue guidance of $4 billion, and raising our non-GAAP EPS guidance from $1.20 to $1.25 per share.”
