I am a keen follow of GW financial information and they released their report for last year today. I am really just interested to see how all the things they do that I think are negative to the wargaming hobby and my enjoyment of their products affects them.
Results: Sales Down 123.1M from 126.5M and profit pretty much flat. Remember GW has an annual price rise of like 5% averaged over the whole product line so if they actually had a lose of volume of about 7% again. Not so good. They do not mention the lack of volume growth much. They also claim that everyone had a positive reaction to finecast and got a 97% Quality Control value. This would have to be the level of kits they deemed shippable at production and not the return to store level. I still see plenty of bloggers post about their problems with finecast.
More discussion to come later.
