Bet365 linked with post-Brexit Malta move

first_img21st May 2018 | By contenteditor Regions: Europe UK & Ireland Southern Europe Gibraltar Malta Bet365 linked with post-Brexit Malta move People AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Bet365 is reportedly considering relocating its Gibraltar operations to Malta after the UK leaves the European Union (EU). The UK is scheduled to exit the EU on March 29 next year, although plans are still being but into place as to how this process will pan out. Bet365 is one of several major gambling companies that have a presence in the Gibraltar market, but with the future of the British Overseas Territory uncertain, the firm is said to be considering its options. The Sunday Times of Malta newspaper has reported that Bet365 is set to relocate some 1,000 employees from its operations in Gibraltar to Malta. The Times also said Bet365 has signed a promise of sale agreement to acquire a section of a new property development on the Tigné peninsula in Sliema, with this site to serve as the firm’s main hub in Malta. The promise sale, which is said to be worth around €70m ($82.8m), is expected to come into effect as soon as Brexit materialises. Bet365 already has a major presence in Malta, with Hillside (New Media Malta), the operating company of Bet365 Group, having held a remote gaming licence in the country since 2015. Sources told the newspaper that should the mooted move come to fruition, it could have a huge impact on Malta and its status as an online gambling hub. “It is not every day that 1,000 well-paid employees are relocated to Malta,” the sources said. “Apart from the fact that we are talking about the largest sports betting company in the world, with some 23 million customers, 1,000 new individuals and their families looking for a place to stay for quite some time on a small island will mean significant business.” However, in a statement issued in response to the report, Gibraltar’s Minister for Gambling Albert Isola said Bet365 has previously stated its ongoing commitment to the country. Isola said: “Bet365 confirmed directly to us that they remain totally committed to Gibraltar and the entirety of its workforce here; they are not leaving Gibraltar by any stretch of the imagination. “Neither are they having to choose between us and Malta. “What remains true is that Gibraltar remains the jurisdiction of choice for the most reputable gaming companies in the world. “Brexit isn’t going to change that.”Related article: Bet365 mulls move for Hills’ Australian business – report Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Topics: People Strategy Bet365 is reportedly considering relocating its Gibraltar operations to Malta after the UK leaves the European Union (EU) Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Addresslast_img read more

Hard Rock and Tropicana eye sports licences in New Jersey

first_img New Jersey’s expanding sports betting market could be set for a further boost after it was revealed that Hard Rock International and Tropicana Entertainment have applied for licences to open sportsbooks at their properties in Atlantic City. Documents made public by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (NJDGE) show that both companies are seeking a “transactional waiver to commence sports pool and online sports pool operations”. Hard Rock last week announced its sportsbook would be powered by GiG and would open before the end of the year, while Tropicana is partnered with William Hill. Hard Rock opened its rebranded Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City in June, while the Tropicana Casino & Resort Atlantic City is one of the largest venues in the city and this year completed a major renovation project. Should Hard Rock and Tropicana be successful in their applications, the waivers would be valid for six months while the full process of licensure continues in the background, according to the NJ Gambling Sites website. Tropicana’s application comes after the company this month confirmed its acquisition by Eldorado Resorts in a deal worth $1.84bn (£1.40bn/€1.59bn). The move extends Eldorado’s reach into 26 land-based properties across 12 states. Eldorado is working with Hills on an initiative that covers its digital and land-based sports betting operations in the US, while Tropicana also started working with Hills in New Jersey prior to the deal going through.New Jersey has so far licensed eight sportsbooks after the state legalised sports betting in the wake of the Supreme Court ruling on PASPA earlier this year. The state has enjoyed a successful start to legalised sports wagering, with the NJDGE having last week revealed that sports betting revenue more than doubled month-on-month in September. Licensed sportsbooks took around $184m last month, up from $96m in August. New Jersey brought in $104m via digital platforms, while the NJDGE said around $336m had been wagered since legalising such activities in mid-June.Image: Farragutful Tags: Online Gambling Legal & compliance Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 17th October 2018 | By contenteditor Regions: US New Jersey Hard Rock and Tropicana eye sports licences in New Jersey Both companies are seeking to offer retail and online betting Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting Tech & innovationlast_img read more

Catena sets sights on US for profit growth

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Whether by luck or design, Catena Media’s future hinges on the business making the most of its US sports betting affiliate opportunities Catena sets sights on US for profit growth For gambling affiliate sector watchers, this is a golden age of discovery. The rise of the super-affiliates and the listing of key sector leaders on various exchanges is bringing unheralded levels of disclosure.Within the space of a fortnight in November, the third quarter results for three of the most active affiliate consolidators were published. The biggest of the trio, Catena Media, embarked upon a short series of Capital Markets Days in London and Stockholm to better explain to investors the company’s prospects.The revenue and operating profit growth numbers from all three were certainly impressive. Raketech saw revenue rise 43% for the first nine months of the year to €17.9m, while adjusted EBITDA was up 30% to €9.9m. Better Collective more than matched those numbers with revenue for the first nine months of the year up 68% to €28.3m and EBITA rising 45% year-on-year to €10.7m.But it is the sector behemoth Catena Media which is truly exhibiting what might be termed an affiliate network effect. In its presentation to analysts in London, the company pointed to a compound annual growth rate of 113% between 2015 and 2018. At the third quarter run-rate (where revenues for the three months to September hit €27.7m, up 60%), annualised revenue stands at €110.8m, while the EBITDA run-rate stands at €54.4m.Much of Catena’s growth is due to acquisitions; according to the presentation, it has completed 34 deals in its relatively short corporate lifetime. Yet organic growth would appear to be harder to come by. In the first nine months of the year, the company said that it grew 17% organically which is somewhat in-ine with Better Collective, which reported an organic growth rate of 19% for the first three quarters of 2018.In both cases it is a decent, though far from spectacular, outcome and helps explain the somewhat lacklustre share price performances of both in the year to date.Until now the focus for both companies, and indeed the whole online gambling affiliate sector, has been on the consolidation. Yet, while Better Collective, Catena and Raketech have played their part in the process to date, it is noticeable that the last deal spoken about by any of them came in July, when Better Collective splashed out €4m on the Greece-focused WBS Online Marketing Services and KAPA businesses.As for Catena, its last acquisition was the somewhat ill-timed ASAP Italia deal which saw the company fork out €16m in cash a matter of days before the populist Italian coalition government announced a ban on all forms of marketing for gambling.Italy got very little by way of attention in the Capital Markets Days presentation, with the company blandly stating that it would be business as usual in Italy – until next year when the new rules come into force.Whether chastened by that experience – or more likely because of the smaller field of attractive opportunities and the chilling effect of tighter regulatory backdrops in various jurisdictions – Catena indicated that its focus has altered significantly. Previously the company boasted of having a roster of up to 4,000 sites working in the gambling space.Now chief executive Per Hellberg pointed to a slimmed-down stable of around 1,200 sites, adding that the company saw 80% of its revenues come from 30 to 40 key brands, including AskGamblers, JohnsSlots and BettingPro.This is quite a change of focus. The acquisitions of the past three years or more have largely been paid in shares and as such have been highly dilutive.“We’ve not increased EPS (earnings per share) too much, that is why we need to change the way we do things going forward,” Hellberg said. “Margin percentages have decreased so what we want to do is focus on fewer brands (and) grow more efficiently.”As was noted in a previous column, one such dilutive shares issue came from the renegotiations of the PlayNJ acquisition from December 2016.This is perhaps the final reason for the shift in focus away from M&A.In a twist of fate PlayNJ, bought with New Jersey and Nevada’s online casino and poker sectors in mind, came with additional assets that have now cemented Catena’s position as by far the largest affiliate player in the still-nascent regulated sports betting market in the US.To an extent, the post-PASPA US sports betting developments have fallen into Catena’s lap and the company is certainly not about to look this particular gift horse in the mouth.Catena isn’t alone in this. Better Collective also made much of the post-PASPA opportunity saying that it had made its first revenue from US sports-betting and would be setting up offices in the US next year.But as Catena’s new-ish US general manager for iGaming Michael Daly said, his company is “in pole position” for the US opportunity which, as he pointed out, will be see revenue at least double next year, without counting any further states opening up.“US sports betting is the most interesting thing in the gambling world right now,” he added.Whether by luck or judgment, the US potential means Catena is now firmly on course to hit its medium-term target of €100m in EBITDA by 2020 without necessarily having to add any further acquisitions.“One year ago, we thought we would have to acquire a lot of businesses to get to €100m,” said Hellberg. “But now we think that can come from the current business.”Such comments are instructive and will be read with interest by the rest of the affiliate sector. Those involved in the consolidation game within the affiliate sector will note, perhaps, that the 500lb gorilla has just left the room. What that does for M&A multiples within the space will be an area worth watching next year. 3rd December 2018 | By contenteditor Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Finance Finance Email Addresslast_img read more

Betsson aims to raise SEK500m to support future growth

first_img Email Address 10th September 2019 | By contenteditor Topics: Finance Strategy Finance Gambling operator Betsson has announced plans to issue a new senior unsecured bond with an expected initial minimum volume of SEK500m (£41.6m/€46.7m/$51.4m) to support its ongoing growth and expansion strategy.Betsson has instructed joint bookrunners Nordea and Swedbank to arrange investor meetings to investigate the possibility of the bond issue.“We have the ambition to grow, organically and through acquisitions,” Betsson’s president and chief executive Pontus Lindwall explained. “This should be done in a profitable and sustainable manner, primarily in locally regulated markets and we continuously evaluate additional markets to grow in.“With this planned bond issue, we secure financial flexibility to execute our long-term strategy.”Should Betsson opt to proceed with the plans, the bond would run with a tenor of three years, subject to market conditions.The news comes after Betsson in July revealed a 5% year-on-year decline in revenue for the second quarter of 2019, primarily due to struggles in the Nordic region and the Netherlands.Revenue for the three months to June 30, 2019 fell to SEK1.3bn, while, after financial expenses of SEK14.7m and taxes of SEK10.5m, Betsson’s profit for the quarter stood at SEK171.6m, down 37%.However, the operator’s performance over the first six months of 2019 made for better reading, with revenue up 2% to SEK2.6bn. Gross profit, after the cost of services stood at SEK1.8bn, down marginally year-on-year.

UK govt sets August reopening date for English casinos

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Casino & games Topics: Casino & games 17th July 2020 | By contenteditor The UK government will allow casinos in England to reopen from 1 August, with industry body the Betting and Gaming Council (BGC) is now calling on Wales and Scotland to follow suit.Prime Minister Boris Johnson made the announcement as he set out plans for a further easing of lockdown in England this morning (17 July).The move was hailed by the BGC, which has lobbied hard for the venues to be permitted to open in July, by highlighting casinos’ economic contributions, the jobs they provide and the measures taken by operators to ensure customers and staff are kept safe.The venues have been closed for over four months, from 20 May, as a result of novel coronavirus (Covid-19) and remained shuttered despite other land-based gambling outlets such as betting shops (15 June) and bingo halls (4 July) being allowed to welcome back customers.“After four long months of lockdown, it’s fantastic to see casinos will reopen safely for business again on 1 August,” BGC chief executive Michael Dugher said. “I am delighted that they can now play their part in supporting the recovery of the tourism and hospitality sector.“BGC casino members went the extra mile to meet strict Covid guidelines some weeks ago but were left in the dark as to when they would be allowed to reopen,” he continued. “I’d like to thank DCMS Secretary of State Oliver Dowden, Minister Nigel Hiddleston and the many cross-party MPs who supported us and worked hard to secure a reopening date.”While the confirmation of a reopening date will see many of the 12,000 people employed by the venues across England return to work, it remains uncertain when casinos in Wales and Scotland will be allowed to reopen.Dugher therefore called on the government of each country to announce their plans for the venues, noting that the continued closures left around 2,000 employees unable to work.“The uncertainty has been awful for the 12,000 people who work in casinos in England and we now call on Scottish and Welsh governments to follow suit and permit casinos to reopen without delay,” he said.“The devolved administrations owe it to the 2,000 employees who work in Scottish and Welsh casinos to end this uncertainty and help them return to work.”Earlier this week one of the UK’s largest land-based casino operators, Genting UK, announced that as many as 1,642 staff faced redundancy as a result of the upheaval caused by Covid-19. While the operator said it would do everything it could to reduce this number, it blamed the uncertainty caused by a lack of a firm reopening date and subsequent changes to its operating model for the planned layoffs.center_img The UK government will allow casinos in England to reopen from 1 August, with industry body the Betting and Gaming Council (BGC) is now calling on Wales and Scotland to follow suit.

Slow Vegas recovery hurts enlarged Caesars’ Q3 performance

first_img Slow Vegas recovery hurts enlarged Caesars’ Q3 performance For the three months to 30 September revenue amounted to $1.38bn (£1.05bn/€1.16bn), more than doubling the legacy Eldorado Resorts’ revenue for Q3 2019.
