Glu Reports Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Glu Mobile Inc. (NASDAQ:GLUU), a leading global developer and publisher of free-to-play games for smartphone and tablet devices, today announced financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2013.

“Our third quarter results were boosted by the exceptional early performance of Deer Hunter 2014,” stated Niccolo de Masi, Chief Executive Officer of Glu. “Deer Hunter 2014 has broken Glu daily revenue and DAU records and consistently remained in or near the top 10 on both the Apple App Store and Google Play US top grossing charts. As a result of this title’s momentum, we now expect record topline non-GAAP revenue and adjusted EBITDA profitability in Q4.”

De Masi continued, “In December we expect to launch Eternity Warriors 3, a sequel of one of Glu’s most successful franchises to date. The combination of upcoming title launches, Deer Hunter 2014’s momentum, and a strengthened balance sheet position us well for 2014.”
