    Everyone, read the report. Losses were in China (largest market) and Korea (home market).
    This is likely due to tighter regulations and shrinking market share as the market shifts and more competition to the markets.
    Every other region has seen profit growth and expected growth although small. I dont see any major impacts anytime soon.
    Even if the NA region was making profits, we'd still feel any impacts from the South Korean and/or Japanese regions since we get our updates from them. Though I really doubt a Q4 loss in the economy we had is going to change things all that much to begin with.

    Whether there will be reported profit or losses for the final quarter, most companies are rather cautious and are predicting lower numbers, less optimism, which is a good thing versus false optimism which would build bubbles. Look at potential cutbacks now, reset, reassess and replan from there.

    Unsurprisingly, Japan is rather small in market share for Nexon and anytime you're not going negative there, things are good. Predicting higher profits in that market for consecutive quarters there is a good thing.

    One has to worry about the S Korea and China markets as ever changing factors are altering what may happen in such key areas.

    This is either really bad or really good. >_>;;;

    Not sure how u missed it but there's already a thread about that here.

    No one really stays in town square much these days.
