HELSINKI， Aug. 24 (Xinhua)-- Following a loss-making year， Finnish company Rovio announced Wednesday it gained a remarkable profit in the first half of 2016.

The results were achieved before profits from the movie of Angry Birds were counted.

However， it suffered from declining sales in 2013 and swung to a loss in 2015. The weak performance resulted in massive layoffs. Analysts believed the wide-ranging portfolio of businesses was to blame.
In a recent interview with Xinhua， Levoranta recalled the declining years were difficult moment.
"We tried a lot of different things， and it was kind of very innovative per se as well， and some of the ideas applied and some might not，" she said.
Later on， the company started to focus on the game and animation businesses， she added. Enditem
