First Berlin Equity Research has published a research update on Media and Games Invest SE (ISIN: MT0000580101). Analyst Ellis Acklin reiterated his BUY rating and maintained his EUR 7.90 price target.

Media and Games Invest published first quarter KPIs that were slightly ahead of our forecasts and above the upper end of 2022 guidance. Sales for the three month period totalled €66m vs €52m in the prior year period (+27% Y/Y), and adj. EBITDA rose 30% on an annualised basis to €17.6m. Both figures topped guidance, which calls for the topline to increase 15% to 23% Y/Y with adj. EBITDA growth of 13% to 27%. The performance was again led by organic sales growth with M&A activity currently idling. We maintain our Buy rating with an unchanged €7.9 target price.
