Steven Salz, Co-Founder and CEO of Rivalry. “Our differentiated strategy and product offering is key in connecting with a demographic that legacy operators aren’t equipped to serve. We’ve created brand equity, loyalty, and consumer engagement that continue to guide our successful player acquisition and retention strategy, enhance customer unit economics, and highlight the operating leverage within the business that increases as we scale.”

“The momentum we saw during Q3 has continued into this current quarter as we delivered record results in October, including reaching our first profitable month,” Salz continued. “Delivering a clean net profit on a normalized basis is a promising validation of our overarching strategy which prioritizes sustainable user economics and careful capital allocation. While October will likely set our high benchmark in 2022 as seasonally one of the strongest months, we believe our +20% month-over-month average growth over the past year, successful casino product expansion, and increased market share ownership of esports betting positively signals directionally as to where we are headed on underlying profitability in the future.”
