Games Workshop has released its Half-Year financial report. Everything's up. Profitability is up so much I gotta take a closer look.
I'll reply later once I actually read instead of skim the whole thing, but 1 thing I picked up on immediately (aside from insane growth in profitability for something that's not a tech company...or maybe I should re-think GW and consider it one) is they're continuing to invest in capital projects, ergo they're building facilities like their miniatures factory (the sum makes me think of it as an expansion, not just replacing old stuff though that is part of it), ergo...and this is the most important thing...GW is still working like it's aiming/planning/expecting to grow.
So let me give you the skinny. GW published its report here and, as soon as you get past the 1st and a half page, the CEO Kevin Rountree actually tells you what's up with GW right now in Human Lingo (I know we who've spent time in finance in particular speak in binharic cant sometimes): https://investor.gam...year-report.pdf
Now BBC is also doing some reporting, positioning this news under a broader theme of indoor hobbies: https://www.bbc.com/...siness-55629984
There, the CEO has a message for everyone here and elsewhere in the Warhammer Hobby:
I'd like to thank our enthusiastic and loyal fan base who share our love for the Warhammer hobby and the fantastical settings, characters and narratives that make up our intellectual property.
Anyway, just letting you guys know. This reminds me of something...I'm trying to remember what. I'll tell you when I remember.
