Impairments push Rank Group to FY loss despite land-based recovery

Rank Group posted a 5.9% increase in revenue to £681.9m (€798.0m/$868.1m) in its 2022-23 financial year, although increased impairment costs led to a statutory net loss.

The operator reported year-on-year growth across all operating segments in the 12 months to 30 June. This included the Rank-owned Grosvenor, Mecca and Enracha land-based businesses, which endured a challenging few years during the pandemic.

There was also notable growth within Rank’s digital business, with revenue rising 10.4% to reach £202.9m.

However, higher impairment charges, together with increased operating costs, meant the business posted a net loss.

O’Reilly believes economic pressures are easing

Chief executive John O’Reilly acknowledged the higher costs during his evaluation of the FY performance. However, he said with certain costs now stabilising and inflation easing, this will allow for revenue and profit growth moving forward.

After Covid and economic headwinds, rank is positioned to drive profit ..

Nigeria introduces new permit for offshore-licensed operators

Nigeria is set to introduce a new remote operator permit for offshore-licensed operators, allowing businesses to offer online gambling in Nigeria without a local presence.

Businesses will be eligible for a remote operator permit if they already hold a licence in another jurisdiction and wish to offer their services to Nigerian players.

It will allow operators to offer casino games, bingo, slots, sports betting and poker.

The permit will be valid for five years. Operators will pay an initial $100,000 to receive the permit, followed by fees of $50,000 in each of the next four years.

The Nigerian National Lottery Regulatory Commission will issue terms and conditions which permit-holders must adhere to.

Holders of the new permit will be allowed to offer their services in Nigeria and to advertise within the country in print media or via affiliate programmes.

Key to the new regime will be an updated tax collection system, powered by UK-based fintech company E-Technologies Global Limite..

Aspire prepares for a new era

Aspire Global has divested its B2C operations to become a focused B2B business which in turn becomes part of a formidable proposition now NeoGames has acquired the supplier. But that B2C heritage will be vital to ensuring it continues its rapid growth trajectory, says CEO Tsachi Maimon.

Tsachi Maimon was named chief executive of Aspire Global in 2013. At that time the business brought in about €25m (£21.3m) annually. Eight years later, it posted revenue of €213.3m for 2021.

When Maimon joined, he oversaw a B2C business which contributed the bulk of revenue. By the end of 2021, the company had sold off all its consumer-facing operations, which were snapped up by Esports Technologies in a €65.5m deal.

On 17 June, Aspire was then acquired by an even larger entity, with ilottery specialist NeoGames completing a public offer to take charge of the company for €402.3m.

This, Maimon says, is the result of “a series of carefully considered business decisions” that has ultimately taken it..
