Aspire Global revenues up 18% in FY2017
By Robert Simmons

Swedish based online gaming software provider Aspire Global has reported an 18% increase in its revenues during the full-year 2017.

Announcing its full set of financial results for the year, the company reported revenues of €71.9m, beating the €61m revenue figure reported during 2016.

Company EBITDA rebounded from a poor 2016, growing by 25% during 2017 to €14.3m from a 2016 low of €11.4m. Aspire attributed this rise to the strong performance of its B2C brands, which accounted for 48% of revenue and 45% of company EBITDA.

Distribution, gaming duties and administrative expenses also rose during 2017 by 16%, 15% and 14% respectively, reflecting increased regulation and exportation costs.

During 2017, Aspire Global successfully completed its first initial public offering of shares on the Nasdaq First North Premier stock exchange in Stockholm and also began moves to open its first sportsbook offering in partnership with SBTech.

Aspire’s Chairman of the Board Carl  Klingberg commented: “Aspire Global has a unique position in the iGaming market as the first provider of a full turnkey solution for operators of sportsbooks and casinos, let alone one with operations in six regulated markets.

"We are looking forward to realising the grand agenda for the coming year, aiming at continued strong growth on a yearly basis.”
