The gaming company said that for its third quarter of fiscal 2018, it brought in net income of $10.2 million, or a penny per share, which is up from its loss from the year-ago quarter of less than $1 million. Analysts were calling for the company to bring in a GAAP loss of a penny per share.

Zynga added that for the period, it brought in revenue of $233.2 million, which is stronger than the $217 million in revenue that analysts were calling for. The company also said that its net increase in deferred revenue came in at $248.9 million, which is higher than the company’s forecast, but below the Wall Street guidance of $250.1 million, according to data compiled by FactSet.
