GAN successfully completed its first debt issue earlier this year, raising gross proceeds of £2.0m during the second quarter of 2017, allowing the company to potentially grow further.

In a statement, GAN CEO Dermot Smurfit said: “GAN generated positive clean EBITDA in H1 2017, following a substantial multi-year period of investment focused on the US land-based casino Industry. We anticipate this favorable EBITDA trend to continue throughout H2 2017.”

“The first half of 2017 saw continued growth in recurring revenues driven by the launch of five new clients of Simulated Gaming and strong growth in real money Regulated Gaming markets in the US and Europe.”

“We remain encouraged by the growth characteristics of Simulated Gaming and have already seen a major up-lift in player activity as we begin to experience the onset of the seasonally strong fall period.”

“As the numbers illustrate our Group has now moved into sustainable profitability at the clean EBITDA level. Growth prospects for Simulated Gaming™ and real money Regulated Gaming continues to offer the Company a viable path to creating significant incremental shareholder value.”
