Investment summary

Stride Gaming is a leading UK online gaming operator. The company is achieving strong organic growth in real-money gaming and now has a market share of 12%. The Aspers Casino partnership has had an encouraging start and Stride is well positioned to keep gaining market share. Its key differentiating factor is the high-performing proprietary platform and we expect underlying margin expansion as customers migrate from acquired businesses (Tarco and 8Ball).
