PhilWeb Reduces Net Loss to $1.2M
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

PhilWeb Corporation has reported a 30% decrease in its net loss to Php60 million (US$1.2 million) in 2020, despite suffering a 51% decline in revenue due to COVID-19 closures.

The company’s sites were all closed on 15 March 2020 as the COVID-19 pandemic hit the Philippines before gradually re-opening at reduced capacity from June, resulting in reduced revenues of Php105 million (US$2.2 million) and EBITDA of Php30 million (US$618,000).

However, PhilWeb President Brian Ng said that positive EBITDA has been printed since October and net income since November, with venues operating at around 60% capacity.

“Our fourth quarter 2020 results came before PhilWeb’s acquisition of 16 eBingo venues and 2 accredited eBingo machine providers, as well as the revenue contribution of additional eGames sites incrementally converting back to our Electronic Gaming System at the start of 2021,” Brian Ng said.

“The Company is on stable ground and well positioned as we anticipate the return to economic activity in the second half of the year.”

The game has found great popularity in Europe and Latin America and there is a strong PvP community of Saint Seiya Awakening players that hone their strategic skills to compete in top tournaments.

The Jamir All Star, themed Road to Master, will bring together the strongest PvP players for a chance to earn the title of the world’s best Saint Seiya Awakening: KotZ player. Seven matches will be livestreamed in 4 languages, English, French, Spanish and Portuguese, across Facebook, YouTube and Nimo TV. The lineup also features some unseen encounters between highly popular players from Server E (Europe) and Server A (Americas).

The Jamir All Star will also kick off a larger Saint Seiya Awakening: Knights of the Zodiac 2021 esports program. To support existing champions as well as up and coming players, official training camps for esports commentators and players will be available later this year, with more details to be disclosed in fall 2021.
