Investment summary

Stride Gaming is a leading UK online gaming operator, achieving strong organic growth in the UK. H118 adjusted revenues increased 14% to £44.9m, driven by 25% growth in the proprietary platform. However, the entire UK gaming sector has been stung by recent regulatory changes and, like other operators, Stride’s strategy is to diversify its UK-centric model into international markets. After the H118 results, we lowered our total FY18 and FY19 EBITDA forecasts by 16.6% and 28.7% respectively to reflect increased costs associated with regulatory compliance and international expansion.

Industry outlook

H2 Gambling Capital estimates that the UK bingo-led market generates approximately £800m in gross gaming revenue (or c £650m net gaming revenues). However, regulatory burdens are increasing, with POCT on free bets (from 2017) and the prospect of a further rise in remote gaming duty at the next budget. Operators need to comply with other measures including social responsibility, source of funds, GDPR, AML etc.
