In the Q1 2021 report, Catena also highlighted the growth of its US iGaming operations, which rose by more than 200% to €22.4m. The company also noted significant changes to the board in the period, including Göran Blomberg’s appointment as Interim CEO, effective 7 January 2021, followed by Michael Daly’s appointment as group CEO, effective 1 March 2021.

“I am pleased to report a very strong start to the year by Catena Media,” said Daly (pictured). “Revenue and earnings reached all-time quarterly highs thanks to exceptional performance in North America and solid gains in other parts of the business. This robust showing provides a springboard to achieve revenue gains during 2021 well above our target of double-digit organic growth.

“Our excellent performance reflects a solid focus on driving our global portfolio of affiliation brands. Revenue growth in North America was exceptional, supported by the successful launch of operations in Michigan and Virginia.”
