Even as the global economy craters, Konami is recording strong revenues during the nine month period ending December 31, 2008.
Both revenues and income were up for Konami, who reports:
We hereby announce that our consolidated net revenues and consolidated operating income for the nine months ended December 31, 2008 were ¥234,011 million (105.1 percent of the same period in the previous year) and ¥34,712 million (125.7 percent of the same period of the previous year), respectively, and we marked increases both in revenues and income.
Income before income taxes and net income were ¥31,703 million (115.7 percent of the same period of the previous year) and ¥17,826 million (117.3 percent of the same period of the previous year), respectively.
This year has been a big year for Konami — especially as other companies have struggled in this economic climate. Though, we do wonder how the company will fare in 2009.
