GameStop (GME) ended Q2 2022 with $908.9 million of cash on the balance sheet

GameStop has ended this past quarter with a lot of cash on hand and one minor loan to pay back.


GameStop (GME) has reported in with its Q2 2022 earnings. There are a few stories to pick up from Wednesday's report, but one thing that stands out is that there's a lot of cash on hand. There's straight-up cash coming from GME and it's nearly $1 billion USD worth.

As noted on the GameStop Q2 2022 financial results, GameStop ended the period with cash and cash equivalents of $908.9 million USD. What's interesting to note here is that the company points out that it has no debt, other than "a low-interest, unsecured term loan associated with the French government’s response to COVID-19." There's a qualifier one doesn't see everyday.

While there isn't much to pick up from that unsecured term loan, the earnings report does note that GameStop managed to decrease its net cash outflow by 46 percent from Q1 2022. Overall, GameStop didn't quite hit Wall Street's expectations of a $1.27 billion quarter, but the company did hit $1.14 billion in revenue on the strength of hardware, software, and collectible sales.

Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
