Gameloft: A True Success Story
In 1999, Michel Guillemot saw the incredible potential of the new generation of mobile phones as entertainment platforms. He founded Gameloft to produce and distribute fun, addictive, and high-quality games adapted to all mobile phones around the world. A true pioneer, Gameloft was one of the first companies in the world to develop games for Java- and Brew-enabled handsets.
In 2003, Gameloft began developing its games on over 100 different mobile phone models. The company became profitable the same year.
In 2004, Gameloft launched the first installment in the Asphalt franchise, which today remains a benchmark on mobile phones and digital platforms. Gameloft continued to innovate by offering games in 3D for the first time on mobile phones and boosting its lineup with games under prestigious third-party licenses.
In 2008, Gameloft successfully shifted towards smartphones and touchscreen interfaces. Gameloft was the first company to offer 6 games on the Apple App Store after it was launched on July 9, 2008. For the first time, Gameloft's yearly sales figures surpassed the 100-million-euro mark.
In 2009, Gameloft developed the first installments in three of its most successful franchises: Dungeon Hunter, Modern Combat, and Gangstar.
2013 marks the international success of Despicable Me: Minion Rush, the first Gameloft title to reach over 100 million downloads. Also this year, the company's Facebook page reached 10 million fans.
After 14 years of constant growth, Gameloft is proud to announce today its inclusion in the SBF 120 index.
"This entry in the SBF 120 is a huge step in our stock market performance," states Michel Guillemot, CEO and founder of Gameloft. "I would like to congratulate all of the teams at Gameloft, who contribute to the success of the company each day and who have made this decisive step possible."
Today, Gameloft employs over 6,000 people around the world and is a key player in an industry expected to grow rapidly in the coming years.
