The Atari Group’s strategy is aimed at developing the game catalog with a strong specialization on mobile platforms and simulation / strategy games (Atari games) and on real money games (Atari Casino), the development of the Atari VCS (Atari VCS) and related projects, particularly in the blockchain space (Atari Partners).
For the first semester ended September 30, 2020 (April 1 to September 30, 2020), the Atari Group achieved a turnover of 7.8M against 10.7M for the same semester of the previous fiscal year. The growth in the games business was overshadowed by the decline in licensing activity and the postponement of the launch of Atari VCS to the second half of the year, both activities having faced logistical problems (sourcing and transport). ) caused by the COVID 19 crisis.
The Atari VCS did not contribute to the first half results as machine deliveries started after September 30, 2020. Following the launch in December 2020, customer feedback to date has been extremely positive.
The activity linked to the Atari Token started during this period and generated 0.3 M of turnover and 0.2 M of deferred turnover. The positive reception of the Atari Token by users, the rapid development of use cases (see atarichain.com) and the evolution of the Atari Token price on exchanges attest to the very successful start-up and growth potential of this activity.
The gross margin level was 80.6% of sales over the period compared to 87.7% for the previous period.
The main expense items are in line with the Group’s expectations and reflect the efforts made to invest in its 4 businesses. R&D costs still cover investments in Atari and RollerCoaster Tycoon franchises, with a strong specialization in mobile platforms and simulation / strategy games. Marketing and sales costs amounted to 1.5 million for the first half of the 2020-2021 fiscal year, mainly supporting the games activity over the period. General and administrative expenses amounted to 2.0 million and are stable compared to the previous period, the Group thus generated a current operating income of -1.1 million in the first half of 2020-2021, against +0.7 M in the first half of 2019 -2020.
The other financial income and expenses are mainly linked to a fair value adjustment of Animoca shares, resulting in a net result of consolidated entities of -1.5M.

Non-current financial assets include 11.9 million of trade receivables at more than one year, compared to 12.1 million at March 31, 2020.
Other current liabilities include in particular 2.5 million deferred income for Atari VCS pre-orders. This amount will be recognized as revenue in the second half of the 2020-2021 fiscal year.
The Group is now targeting a positive net result for fiscal year 2020-2021 (compared to an increase in profitability compared to the previous fiscal year), despite the delays in licensing and launching the VCS activities caused by the global pandemic. . Achieving this objective assumes the delivery before March 31, 2021 of the VCS units produced, as well as the finalization of license agreements in the second half of the 2020-2021 fiscal year currently under negotiation. These elements could however be postponed to the following quarter given the persistent health crisis and the risks inherent in any negotiation process.
The second semester will be marked by several important projects, in particular:
- Free version of the Beat Legend game released and progressive global launch
- Public test of Atari Combat in various selected countries
- Continuation of licensing activities, in particular for home arcades
Public test of Atari Casino on the blockchain
- First deliveries made in December 2020
- Acceleration of production to process orders received directly (Atari VCS online sales) or via distributors, deliveries made before March 31, 2021 contributing to sales for the year
- Public sale and successful registration of the Atari Token
- Launch of Atari headquarters in Decentraland
- Continued development in the Sandbox, new test sales on WAX
The realization of plans, their operational budget and their financing plan are inherently uncertain and failure to meet these assumptions may have an impact on their value.
