"This was an extraordinary quarter, and we’re deeply proud of everything our teams at Electronic Arts are doing for our players and communities," said CEO Andrew Wilson. "We launched new games, deeply engaged players in our live services, and welcomed tens of millions of new players to our network. It was an unprecedented first quarter of growth in our business, and we will continue building on that strength with more innovative experiences, more groundbreaking content, and more ways to connect with friends and play great games throughout the year." Here are some numbers:
Selected Operating Highlights and Metrics

  • Net bookings* for the trailing twelve months was $5.980 billion, up 17% year-over-year.
  • Launched Command & ConquerTM Remastered and Burnout ParadiseTM Remastered during the quarter.
  • During the quarter, EA delivered over 30 new content updates, including two major game expansions, and more than 50 mobile updates.

  • During the quarter, Apex LegendsTM launched Season 5 with engagement reaching its highest levels since Season 1.

Nary a word on their renewed expectations of income from ANTHEM GAAS....?

I mean they told us they were dedicated to fixing it, so why wouldn't it be expected to start generating some big,big revenues for them real soon ...? I would think the board wants to hear all about it ...

You jest, but I have no doubt EA is making dozens of dollars a year from Anthem.

Whatever, their executive bonuses are out of control. Glad to read that some shareholders are actually taking them to task for that shit.
None of that was in the link blue posted.
Doesn't mean it's not true though.
A quick google results in this, where a shareholder was trying to do something this month.

Definitely cute, but nothing will come of it. Pay and bonuses are built-in to the executives contracts.

So your saying you would give yourself a bigger bonus. You need to read animal farm.

Oh now slow down there pardner, I'm just a common plebeian. I'm saying that philosophically as the leader of anything, your job should be to enrich the thing you serve, not yourself. Rising tide lifts all boats and all that.

If I agreed with the idea of a publically traded company at all (I don't), then it would make sense to measure your worth by the worth of your company. Executive bonuses on-top of that is just perverse.

Reminds me of the real estate racket. Fuckers charge 6% of the sale price split between both firms. They couldn't care if your house goes for 500,000 or 510,000. They just want the commission on the sale. They aren't incentivized to get the best price for you.

These bonuses are so large they don't really care if they're doing long-term good or ill for the company, as their bonuses are worth 10x more than their salary. Have you seen the Matthew McConaughey scene of wolf of wall street?

More like the planet stuck at home and looking for stuff to do. Gaming - not just video - has absolutely exploded during this pandemic.

If it was my company, I'd take my bonus and split half of it evenly amongst all my employees, the other half I've split again and give a 1/4 to charity, and keep 1/4 for myself. Make you workers happy, make the company prosper, do a little good, and I'd still be making millions, OH and maybe my company would perform better so all my stocks would actually rise and I'd actually get richer A-HYUK. Give me the fucking keys EA, pull over, you're too drive to drunk.
