The acquisition closed on March 1st, 2017.
The acquired assets occupy a prominent position in the Swedish casino market and have a strong track record of delivering substantial value to advertisers. The acquired assets generated a pre-tax profit margin of more than 80%. The assets were consolidated into KAX Media as of March 1st, 2017.
The purchase price amounts to an upfront payment of EUR 3.75 million which was paid as a cash consideration in conjunction with the transfer of the assets. In addition, there is an earn-out of maximum EUR 2.5 million which is based on revenue performance over a period of one year. In order to achieve the full earnout amount, the sellers need to generate sales growth during the earnout period of 25%.
“Together these three affiliate sites command a meaningful share of the Swedish casino market. We are thrilled to be active in Sweden and look forward to continued expansion into the other Nordic markets. Sweden is one of the most exciting and innovative iGaming markets in Europe,“ says Gambling.com Group Chief Executive Charles Gillespie.###
