Games Workshop has had a good year. Profits are expected to almost double. In other words, the Nottingham-based gaming company will make about £74m this year compared to £38m last year.
Why? 75% of Games Workshops profits are made internationally – in America and abroad. The Pound has been very weak which keeps the cost of buying Games Workshop miniatures and games down (or less high, perhaps).
Online sales and Warhammer are to thank for the boost. £10m came from license fees. The City of London likes what it sees here and shares are up 150%. Although shares took a 6% tip on more recent news that the company would pay less money out to shareholders.
Who benefits from Games Workshop’s £5m bonus?
1,700 employees. If it’s an equal split than that’s nearly £3,000 per employee. The chances are, though, there will be catches. For example, sometimes these bonuses are only paid out to staff who’ve been with a company for more than a year.
