King CEO Riccardo Zacconi acknowledged that second-quarter gross bookings -- the money they get from players who buy things on the game -- "came in below our expectations."
Still, he said "the business continued to perform well," pointing to cash flows of $154 million.
The healthy cash flows prompted King to unveil a special dividend of $150 million to investors, but that wasn't enough to satisfy investors.
The question continues to be whether King can replicate the success it enjoyed with Candy Crush. The company said for the second straight quarter it had three of the top 10 grossing games on the Apple(AAPL, Tech30) App Store and Google(GOOGL, Tech30) Play Store in the U.S.
In addition to Candy Crush, King is behind the games Pet Rescue and Farm Heroes, and it's set to launch Candy Crush Soda in wide release later this year.
