("Team17", the "Group" or the "Company")


Pre-close trading update


Team17, a global games label, creative partner and developer of independent ("indie") premium video games, provides the following trading update ahead of announcing its first half results which it expects to release in September 2019.


The Company has continued to experience strong customer traction from both new and established games since the start of the year and now expects both adjusted EBITDA and revenue to be ahead of market expectations for the current year.


The strong first half performance has been driven by continued sales momentum across the back catalogue, a solid performance across an array of new release titles along with the recognition of a higher proportion of revenues relating to license income.


The Company has had a busy release schedule in the first half and launched a number of new titles, including the multi-platform release of My Time at Portia along with Hell Let Loose which launched in Early Access on Steam earlier this month.  In addition, the Company has released new downloadable content for a number of titles, including The Escapists 2 and Overcooked 2. 


The Company has also announced several new partnerships including a partnership with Blacklight Interactive in February, for the popular Golf with Your Friends! game, a partnership with Hermes Interactive for the indie kitchen puzzle game, Automachef, which is intended for launch on Nintendo Switch and Steam this summer, the second title from Playtonic Games, Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair, and a partnership with The Game Kitchen for the metroidvana 2-D action platformer game Blasphemous, both to be launched in 2019.


Recognition of the quality of the Company's games continued into 2019, with Yoku's Island Express being awarded the BAFTA for Best Debut Game in April 2019.
