Esports company GameSquare, which recently acquired FaZe Clan, will report its third-quarter earnings Nov. 15 after the bell. In a move to connect its target Gen Z demographic with Wall Stret, in lieu of hosting the traditional conference call with investors after the results have been released, GameSquare will be livestreaming the Q&A with CEO Justin Kenna and chief innovation officer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins on Twitch.
The livestream, which Twitch has confirmed is the first-ever public company earnings livestream on the platform, is set for Nov. 15 at 5 p.m. ET and will be hosted.
In GameSquare’s decision to stream its earnings call via Twitch, the gaming company cited stats from its data platform StreamHatchet, which finds that Twitch is currently the leading livestream service with its demo, attracting 52.5% of the esports audience this quarter.
This marks Blevins first time joining Kenna for a quarterly earnings event since being named chief innovation officer at GameSquare.
“Livestreaming our quarterly conference call is a natural move for us, as GameSquare was founded on innovation and our mission is dedicated to connecting global brands with gaming and youth audiences,” Kenna said. “We want to encourage investors to try something new and learn more about the gaming market and the creator economy — which are worth $280B and $250B respectively — by experiencing the livestream service that transformed the gaming and entertainment industries. Twitch is an excellent place to move earnings calls to — it’s interactive and intuitive, which will allow us to hear directly from those interested in learning more about our business.”
