Rivalry hails diversification impact as revenue rises to $35.7m in 2023

Rivalry said expansion into new segments helped drive revenue up by 34% year-on-year to $35.7m (£28.3m/€33.0m) in 2023, while the betting operator was also able to reduce net loss.

In a preliminary results announcement, Rivalry said revenue growth was complemented by higher betting handle and gross profit. All this, it added, contributed to a 22% reduction in net loss.

Reflecting on 2023, co-founder and CEO Steven Salz highlighted the operator’s diversification as the main reason for its success. He said growth in new markets such as traditional sports, casino and fantasy, alongside its core esports offering, allowed it to emerge from 2023 as an “increasingly diversified” business.

“Last year we gained meaningful traction in new segments,” Salz said. “This is widening our opportunity set and positioning us for sustainable growth in the medium- to long-term.

“We’re happy to have finished the year with all-time high customer economics, diversified revenue streams and a reinforced co..

Sportradar nears upper end of FY23 revenue guidance with US growth

Sportradar generated €877.6m (£749.6m/$951.5m) in revenue over its 2023 financial year, nearing the upper end of its guidance range thanks to growth in the US.

Revenue was up by 20.2% year-on-year to €877.6m, with Sportradar’s annual outlook for 2023 initially setting a revenue target of €870m to €880m. Revenue growth was powered by increases of 30.0% in the US and 20.0% in Sportradar’s rest of world category.

Significant revenue growth led Sportradar to a total profit from continuing operations of €34.6m, up 229.5% from 2022’s total profit of €10.5m. Adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) increased by 32.6% year-on-year to €166.8m, close to exceeding Sportradar’s outlook range of €162m-€167m.

Adjusted EBITDA margin jumped 177 basis points from 2022 to 19.0%, with Sportradar attributing this to strong operating leverage from sports rights and personnel costs.

As of 31 December 2023, Sportradar had €497.2m in available liquidity, including und..

Super Group’s FY2023 sees €199.7m drop in profit despite record revenue

Super Group recorded a profit before tax of €16.8m (£14.4m/$18.3m) for its 2023 financial year, a significant drop from the €216.5m generated the year prior.

Super Group attributed the drop in profit before tax to non-cash charges of €64.6m. €28.6m of that total came from the January 2023 acquisition of online sports betting and igaming business Digital Gaming Corporation (DGC), which allowed Super Group to enter the US at the start of the year.

The company also highlighted that €42.1m of the drop in profit was down to changes in fair value of option liability and an impairment of goodwill. Super Group also pointed to the 2022 figure’s inclusion of €246.8m in non-cash gains relating to the fair value of warrant and earnout liabilities and related foreign exchange movements.

Operational EBITDA was down from €208.5m in 2022 to €197.3m in 2023. Meanwhile, unrestricted cash was also €12.9m lower at €241.9m, which Super Group again assigned to the DGC acquisition.

FDJ reports “solid” 6.5% year-on-year revenue growth for 2023

La Française des Jeux (FDJ) has reported a 6.5% year-on-year growth in revenue to €2.62bn (£2.24bn/$2.81bn) for its 2023 financial year.

FDJ attributed the “solid” growth in revenue to momentum in its sports betting and online gaming sectors. This was evidenced by an 18.8% increase in its net gaming revenue (NGR), becoming almost 13% of the group’s NGR.

FDJ’s 2023 report came in the wake of the group submitting an offer worth SEK27.96bn (£2.10bn/€2.45bn/$2.67bn) to acquire the entire outstanding share capital of Kindred Group in January.

During 2023, FDJ’s net profit rocketed by 38% to €425m, from 2022’s figure of €307.9m. Recurring operating income shot up from €459m to €532m, again a sizeable rise of 15.8%.

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.
