In a release announcing the results, GameSquare CEO Justin Kenna noted that the company completed integration with Engine Gaming (which it merged with in April) and streamlined its cost structure. In addition, Kenna said that the company has removed “an estimated $5 million of annualized operating costs during the quarter and we continue to expect to realize at least $8 million of total annualized cost savings by the end of the year as we drive efficiencies and cost synergies across our business.”
On the second half of the year, Kenna said:
“I am excited by the opportunities we are pursuing as we enter the seasonally strong second half of the year, supported by strong closed revenue quarter-to-date and 60% of annual revenue historically falling in the second half. As a result, we expect sales in the second half to be between $47 million and $52 million, which combined with first-half pro-forma sales of $28 million are expected to produce full-year 2023 pro-forma sales of between $75 and $80 million. We also expect annual gross margin in 2023 to range between 30% and 35%, which combined with additional cost saving actions are expected to help us reach profitability in the fourth quarter.”
