Zynga Beats Expected Q3 Earnings

ZyngaZynga, better known as the maker of mobile games such as Farmville, has reported better than expected earnings in its third quarter.  This increase in earnings can be attributed to new gaming releases such as Word’s With Friends.

The company reported $176.6 million in third quarter revenue, which was down 12.8% from this period last year but still ahead of Wall Street analysts’ consensus estimate.

The San Francisco-based company has had a slew of layoffs since July and has been revamping its management team and implementing measures to control costs after web offerings on Facebook sank last year.

Zynga’s shares were up 5% in after hours trading on the NASDAQ at the end of Thursday and remains and strong buy.
