With Nexon officially now up on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, the company’s value has now sky-rocketed, now occupying the top seat as Korea’s biggest gaming company. But that is not all. On a global scale in terms of company value, Nexon is now only behind companies such as Nintendo, Activision Blizzard and Electronic Arts. GREE, the Japanese social media platform now occupying in 4th, is poised to relinquished the position to Nexon in just a few months according to analysts.
What about its biggest rival, NCsoft? Nexon is now worth about 15% more, with Nexon’s CEO now the 3rd richest man in South Korea, just behind the bosses of Samsung Electronics and car maker Hyundai. Overall, Dungeon & Fighter Online is currently Nexon’s biggest money maker (the game is earning pots of gold in China), contributing to 30.9% of the revenue and MapleStory at 26.3%. Global wise, revenue from China contributed 37.5%, Korea at 32.7% and Japan at 14.3%. There is apparently no numbers for North America given, which is included in the rest of the remaining percentage.
