GME Financial Results: Analysis

GameStop Corp. (GME) reported mixed results for Q2 FY 2022. The company reported losses per share of $0.36, slightly narrower than analyst predictions. GameStop completed a four-for-one stock split in July. On the other hand, the company's revenue came in at $1.1 billion, down 4.0% year over year (YOY) and behind consensus estimates that called for $1.3 billion in revenue for the quarter. GameStop is regarded as one of the first meme stocks that arose out of the r/wallstreetbets subreddit in 2020.

The partnership will see the company collaborate with the exchange on new ecommerce and online marketing initiatives.
