Games Workshop worldwide sales were up 39% in its fiscal year ended June 3, the company revealed in a preliminary earnings announcement, to £219 million from £158 the previous year.  That’s an accelerating growth rate from the robust 34% the company reported for the previous year (see "Games Workshop Company Store Sales Up in NA”).

Earnings will also be up, to a minimum of £74 million before tax.  The company was happy with those expected results, and announced that it had paid out a bonus amount of £5 million, "paid equally to each member of staff."

Games Workshop’s complete annual report will be released at the end of July.
