“I’m very pleased to see continued success from our operators, as demonstrated by their ongoing rapid growth trend.

The latter part of the quarter resulted in an unusually high number of player-friendly outcomes in the major football leagues, which impacted the trading margin. It is in the nature of the business for the trading margin to fluctuate between quarters depending on the result of sporting events.

The underlying strong performance and momentum within the company is unaffected by these events. This makes me confident in our strategy and business model which creates value for our operators.

As mentioned in the Q4 2016 report, we are delighted to have signed a contract with Greentube in February and look forward to helping expand its online sports betting offering with Kambi’s premium Sportsbook across Europe.

We continue to develop our Sportsbook to carry on delivering an exceptional experience for the end users.” says Kristian Nylén, CEO of Kambi.
