Global Gaming Group Continues Strong Upward Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA Trajectory into 2020
TORONTO, June 30th, 2020. Bragg Gaming Group Inc. (TSXV: BRAG, OTC: BRGGF) (“Bragg”, the “Group” or the “Company”) today released its financial results for the three-months ended March 31, 2020. Bragg is pleased to announce that the Company continued its strong upward revenue and Adjusted EBITDA[*] growth trajectory over the quarter, achieving 44 per cent revenue growth year-over-year and 100 per cent Adjusted EBITDA growth year-over-year.
Continued focus on revenue diversification contributed to Bragg’s robust results, including the signing of new agreements with nine leading industry companies, including Gamesys Group, SkillOnNet, Leon, CasinoSecret and Hub88. The Company is also in advanced discussions with an additional 20 potential new customers in licensed jurisdictions in Europe and Latin America.
“We’re very pleased that we’ve been able to build on the strong trajectory that we achieved in 2019,” said Dominic Mansour, CEO of Bragg. “We’ve continued to emphasize revenue diversification and have delivered strong growth across our operators, with the introduction of new features and functionality on our platforms. We have continually improved our content pipeline and have signed multiple new customers globally.”
While acknowledging the widespread adverse impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic on people and businesses globally, Bragg’s business has experienced a significant increase in revenue, as people chose to seek safe entertainment alternatives they can enjoy in their own homes.
“We’ve also focused on expanding our presence in the burgeoning U.S. gaming market,” Mr. Mansour noted. “We established a foothold there last year with our Kambi and Seneca partnership and are now evaluating opportunities to expand further.”
