The company's sales were up an impressive 72% over last year, thanks to a number of acquisitions including 3D Planet, Sinister Games, Red Storm, and Blue Byte.

The company achieved sales of 113.4 million euros -- a 72% increase over last year. When the effects of the acquisitions are factored out, sales for the period were up 7%. No bottom line results will be revealed until the company releases its fiscal Q2 earnings on December 14.

Ubi Soft brought out 46 new titles during the first half of the 2001/2002 fiscal year, compared with 40 during the same period in the previous fiscal year. The company said top performers for the period included:
