We have made some positive forecast adjustments which leads to an increased Base-case valuation. We find that the market is yet to understand the underlying value of THQ Nordic’s growing IP asset.

Q3 another small quarter – awaiting 2019
We remind investors that Q3 2018 will be another small quarter in terms of full-year profits (~16% of full-year 2018E EBIT pre Q3 revisions) as we expect sequentially lower revenue for the high-margin games divisions THQ Nordic Games and Deep Silver due to few new releases during the third quarter although the Partner Publishing/Film business should see strong sequential growth due to major releases such as F1 2018 and Shadow of the Tomb Raider albeit at a lower gross margin. SG&A will be burdened by the group’s major presence at Gamescom 2018 and increased marketing ahead of Q4/Q1 releases, which is why we expect the overall EBITDA margin to contract by 860bps q/q, offset at the EBIT level by lower D&A. We have raised our Q3 EBIT estimate to SEK 72m (57m), as we have increased our gross margin forecast for the Partner Publishing/Film business. We await the Q3 report before making any estimate changes to 2018-2020E although for 2018E our higher Q3 EBIT estimate looks like it could be offset by Wreckfest for console being delayed, but this would make 2019E even better. As always for the small quarters our focus will be on the news flow for game projects, especially regarding major releases like Darksiders III, Metro Exodus and Biomutant, and any expected M&A. However, given the recent sector sell-off, both in the Nordics and globally, potential weak numbers would certainly pose a short-term share price risk as THQ now trades at a premium to Western majors although at a discount versus local peer Paradox Interactive. We reiterate our Buy rating and target price of SEK 227. The Q3 report is due out 14 November.
Q3 2018E – preview comments
THQ Nordic Games – In Q3, we expect THQ Nordic Games to grow well, albeit at a lower absolute level than in Q2, due to spillover effects from the H1 releases of MX vs ATV, Titan Quest, Wreckfest, strong catalogue sales and a few other releases, where the remaster of Red Faction: Guerrilla, Titan Quest for Switch and This is the Police II should have the largest impact.
Deep Silver’s income from Kingdom Come: Deliverance surprised on the upside in Q2 but should decline in Q3 even though new DLC (From the Ashes) was released 5 July as sales of the original game should be lower. Other releases like Dakar 2018, Pathfinder: Kingmaker and Bards Tale IV were released in the second half of September, which is why the largest effect on revenue is likely to fall in Q4. We also do not expect an equally strong quarter to Q2 in terms of back catalogue sales, which why in total we expect Deep Silver’s revenue to fall q/q.
Partner Publishing/Film is expected to see a strong Q3, boosted by high-impact partner releases such as F1 2018 and Shadow of the Tomb Raider but the higher sales will not fully drop through to the EBIT line as we expect lower gross margins for these high-impact titles as THQ bears lower inventory risk.
In total , group revenue and EBIT will grow q/q due to Partner Publishing/Film as lower revenue and Gamescom-related costs will hold back the games divisions’ EBIT. Q3 revenue should, as in Q2, enjoy positive FX effects, as the SEK has weakened versus the EUR, USD and GBP by 6-9% y/y.

EDIT: Her er foresten en av grunnene til at jeg liker THQ :
" By the end of the quarter, we had 55 games under development, of which 35 are still in the pipeline waiting to be announced."
Ser foresten ut som om det ikke bare er jeg som er fornøyd med THQ i dag. Opp ca 20%
EDIT: Darksiders franchise pack koster nå 45kr ( 90% rabatt ) og ligger som #5 på gts. Bare 2 uker til Darksiders III som ligger som #75:)
03/12-2018 15:00:00: (THQN-B.ST) THQ Nordic förvärvar varumärket Carmageddon
Dette hadde jeg ikke fått med meg. Velkjent, populær serie som har hanket inn mye bra kritikk før.
Ser gamer.no ikke var nådig i sin anmeldelse av nr 3.
Synd for THQ. Dette slippet var vel et av årets største for de.
Evt bare se at de slipper et storspill om en måned som allerede har top50 på steam.
Hilsen han som skulle ta en rask trade og solgte alt på fredag til 149SEK pr aksje.
Elex ligger nå som #1 med 60% rabatt.
10/01-2019 15:00:00: (THQN-B.ST) THQ Nordic acquires the Outcast IP
THQ, saviour of IPs
Metro Exodus ligger nå som #13 og #24 og fremdeles ca 3 uker til launch.
