Tre Kronor Media Stockholm
A letter from the CEO of Tre Kronor Stockholm:
July was a challenging month. Global Gaming´s appeal for retrieving their license was denied so no investment from them in July. In August, it will launch a new Casino Brand, Nano Casino, and we will start to buy media for that brand from September onwards. This will add some revenues but not enough to cover the loss from Ninja Casino. We have taken several actions to save costs and have gotten four of our probationary employees to complete their employment. We are in several pitches at the moment with presentations later in August and September and are chasing new revenues intensively.
One recruitment has been made. New Head of Social Media, Natalie Taguchi, has just joined us, since our former Head of Social Media is moving to Media Plus in Germany.
Media investments are still below our budget and we will not reach the budget threshold for the year. The overall media investments in Sweden are also slightly down (-2.0%) YTD. Channels with the most positive development YTD are Online Video (+16.7%), OOH (+8.7%), SEM (+8.3%) and Social Media (+6.9%). Print media investments are decreasing the most (-18.8%) compared to the same period last year.
