As we near the end of the March earnings season, below is a recap of earnings highlights from four companies traded on OTC Markets. All four companies are headquartered in countries from across the globe and are traded on OTCQX, the top tier of OTC Markets. 

Infineon Technologies IFNNY IFNNF))

Infineon Technologies IFNNY is a semiconductor manufacturer headquartered in Germany with 46,700 employees worldwide.

The company recorded revenue of $3.1 billion (2,631 million euros) for the December quarter, an increase of 6% from the previous quarter and a 37% increase from the same period in 2019.

“In addition to the economic recovery in some regions, we continue to benefit from the digitalization push affecting all areas of life. Semiconductors are needed more than ever,” said CEO Dr. Reinhard Ploss.

Amid rising demand, the industry is currently experiencing a global shortage of semiconductors. The pandemic increased demand for semiconducors last year as at-home electronics such as gaming consoles, laptops and smart TVs rose as people spent more time at home. Rising car sales towards the end of 2020 also contributed to this growth in demand. 

Infineon Technologies noted a positive outlook for the 2021 fiscal year. The company said they expect to generate around $12.8 billion (10.8 billion euros) in revenue on a constant currency basis. 

G5 Entertainment AB GENTF

Earnings were at an all-time high for the company in 2020 as revenue increased by 15% compared to the previous year. 

"In many aspects this year has been different than expected, but we felt strongly already at the beginning of the year that we were building a competitive portfolio of attractive games and improving the effectiveness of our user acquisition (UA)," said Vlad Suglobov, CEO of G5 Entertainment.

For the fourth quarter 2020, the company reported revenue of $38.8 million, an increase of 16% compared to the same period in 2019.

The total number of gaming downloads for the company was 31 million in 2020, a 41% increase compared to 2019. The company also reported a significant increase in the average number of monthly active users (MAU). On average, there were 7.4 million users per month, a 27% increase year-over-year. 

Given the growth experienced in 2020, the company said they expect continued growth for 2021.
