EA has released its financial results for the fiscal year that ended March 31, 2004. Their final revenues hit $2.96 billion, up from $2.48 billion in Fiscal 2003. There were twenty-seven million-selling titles in the last year, and six franchises broke five million units sold. Profit came in at nearly $600 million.
Fiscal Year Expectations - Ending March 31, 2005
Net revenue is expected to be between $3.25 and $3.40 billion - up 10 to 15 percent year-over-year.
Diluted earnings per share are expected to be between $1.95 and $2.10 - as compared with $1.87 for fiscal 2004.
Their biggest platform by far was the Playstation 2, with the PC and XBox roughly tied for second place. While virtually all platforms showed huge growth, there was one notable exception. PC revenues were down 37% from 2003. I remember when EA first broke a billion dollars in annual revenues, and that was driven largely by PC games.
