Investment summary

GMR is leveraging its 'Slingo' brand in real money gaming as well as social, and via blue-chip licensing deals (Express Newspapers, 'Britain's Got Talent' website). FY16 revenues grew 60% to £34m, with a 100% increase in RMG (£21.5m). EBITDA break-even was achieved in H216 and we expect a step-up in profitability as operational leverage kicks in. Our forecasts are under review, but heavy investment is now complete and there is a defined path to profitability.

Industry outlook

The UK government review into stakes and prizes is expected to focus mainly on FOBT machines in betting shops. Possible tighter restrictions on gambling advertising could affect GMR but would be more relevant for bingo-led TV advertising before the 9pm watershed. The European casino market is expected to grow at 9.2% to $27.2bn in 2018 with mobile a key driver. Although the timing is uncertain, the extension of POC gaming tax to 'free play' is in our forecasts from August 2017.
