Strategic Priorities

  • Grow sales within our digital agency vertical: GameSquare is building a leading esports and gaming organization with digital media and marketing agencies connecting brands with large, and growing esports and gaming audiences. The Company is focused on guiding brands to authentically connect with an affluent and influential demographic within the gaming ecosystem. Our unique mix of assets focused on influencer representation, marketing and go-to-market strategies, and our media stack enables us to work with endemic and non-endemic brands to strategize, plan and execute on bespoke campaigns.
  • Create compelling content: Complexity Gaming generated more than 3.2 billion viewer minutes in 2020 giving GameSquare an excellent base to build upon and to more fully monetize. A key strategic priority for the Company is to consistently create compelling content that engages our audience and attracts new fans to the Complexity platform that resonates with gamers and brands;
  • Enhance our social presence to grow audience: The Company will seek to enhance its social presence through our portfolio companies and, importantly, through the rapidly growing streamers and content creators within Complexity Gaming including global talent such as TimTheTatman, Baka Bros, Ninjayla, Electra, and the professional athletes and celebrities within Complexity Stars. Adding top tier talent under the Complexity brand creates a virtuous circle as streamers and content creators can grow their audience by interacting with others on team Complexity. By adding more authentic touch points with Complexity fans, we will strive to grow engagement, and by understanding our audience, we can deliver more content that our fans want to see;
  • Grow brand relationships: The Company has consistently built, and expanded, brand relationships across Code Red, GCN, Cut+Sew, and Complexity Gaming. By creating compelling content and expanding engagement with our audiences, GameSquare offers brands a unique platform to engage with gaming and esports enthusiasts through sponsorships, branded content, merchandise collaborations, creative campaigns, esports and gaming tournaments, and influencer campaigns. Additionally, the Company has numerous subject matter experts that guide brands through consulting engagements to understand the gaming ecosystem and develop strategies to engage with gamers;
  • Develop new revenue streams: GameSquare has identified four lines of business that it believes can accelerate sales growth and realization of profitability; 1) increased investment in merchandise, 2) monetization of streaming talent, 3) agency of record with professional sports franchises and global brands, and 4) world-class events to be held at The Star in Frisco and other top tier venues. The Company has made significant progress within the merchandise vertical, following the announcement of TimTheTatman, and an increase in the volume of brand deals which it believes comes as a result of investment in sales and increased awareness of the GameSquare and Complexity brands. The Company continues to develop strategies to work with and leverage its relationship with the Dallas Cowboys as well as other professional sports franchises and consumer brands. The Company sees tremendous opportunities to work with these clients to develop and execute strategies to connect iconic brands and franchises with gamers, authentically.
