G5 Entertainment Reports Mobile Game Downloads Grew Five Times in 2011, reaching 40M; Kindle Fire Downloads Surpass 1M in Three Months

San Francisco, CA March 1, 2012 – G5 Entertainment, the leading publisher of immensely popular casual and social games for mobile devices, today reported five-fold growth in mobile game downloads in 2011. The total number of downloads of G5’s games recently surpassed 40 million, continuing to increase at impressive rates.

Additionally, G5 Entertainment’s Kindle Fire game downloads surpassed 1 million downloads since the launch of the new mobile platform in November 2011. Analysts put the sales figures of the Kindle Fire between 4 and 6 million units, meaning that on average 1 out of every 5 Kindle Fire owners has downloaded a game from G5.

It comes as no surprise that, as a result, the share price of G5 Entertainment (that is publicly listed in Stockholm, Sweden) grew more than 10 times in the past 18 months.
