Team17 shares up on strong trading at Wakefield firm

Shares of Wakefield-based Team17 Group, the developer of video games and educational entertainment apps, rose as much as  7% after it published a trading update.

“The group’s enlarged portfolio of titles across all ages, genres and platforms has performed well in a challenging marketplace and the group continues to expect to trade in line with full year market expectations,” said Team 17.

 Team17 CEO Debbie Bestwick said: Our group’s portfolio of titles across all divisions has performed well in H1 against a backdrop of a particularly competitive retail market.

“From the joys of Dredge, the success of Police and Construction simulators to LEGO DUPLO DISNEY MICKEY & FRIENDS and Barbie Color Creations, we have enjoyed and celebrated each milestone but as gamers, creators and talented industry veterans, we remain ever cautious and will continue to focus on the delivery of our plans in H2.”
