Investment summary

Stride Gaming is a leading UK online gaming operator. During FY18, the company has faced a number of regulatory headwinds (rising taxes, regulatory fines etc) but we believe Stride is well positioned to take market share in a disrupted industry. The company has announced an 8p special dividend for FY19 and, going forward, the payout policy will be at least 50% of adjusted net earnings.

Industry outlook

Regulatory burdens are increasing, with POCT on free bets (from 2017) and a rise in remote gaming duty from 15%-21% being implemented from April 2019. Operators need to comply with other measures including social responsibility, source of funds, GDPR, AML etc. The recent £7.1m fine for procedural failures from the Gambling Commission is evidence of the stricter regulatory environment.
