LONDON SW QW, Sweden--(BUSINESS WIRE)--“It is very satisfying to report that Unibet achieved all-time highs for Gross Winnings Revenue and EBITDA in the fourth quarter of 2012.”
“The increase in betting duties is in line with our strategy to focus on re-regulated markets and it is especially encouraging that we have achieved these all-time highs despite absorbing betting duties of GBP 3.6 million for the quarter.”
“Our investments in marketing and product development have resulted in an all-time high in active customers for the fourth quarter. This has also contributed to the continuing growth we have seen in the first six weeks of 2013 with daily average Gross Winnings Revenue showing organic growth over 20 per cent compared to the same period in 2012.”
“An important part of Unibet’s strategic investment continues to be focused on Kambi Sports Solutions, which is also developing good momentum as we start 2013. All the new clients signed in 2012 are now live with Kambi. Since the full operational separation of Kambi was completed in 2012, it is clear that Kambi is seen as a credible and attractive partner for major operators.”
“The gaming market is increasingly divided into those who embrace the opportunities and challenges provided by re-regulation and those who don’t. Strong growth in Denmark, Belgium and Italy show that the opportunity provided by re-regulation in Unibet’s core markets helps to offset the short-term impact of higher betting duties and compliance costs. Unibet takes a lead in working with regulators and other official bodies to develop sustainable local regulations that provide a fair market while ensuring social policy goals are achieved,” says Henrik Tjärnström, CEO of Unibet.
