Entain earnings review
Entain published its earnings from July 1 to September 30 of this year. The company’s net gaming revenue rose by 2% in this period while online Net Gaming Revenue (NGR) rose by 1%. At the same time, the company’s CAGR continued in a three-year period was about 11%.
However, this year has been relatively hard for Entain and other companies in the industry. For example, its online growth has crashed by 5% this year. This slowdown has been offset by its retail division, which has risen by 102% this year. In total group revenue rose by 12% year-to-date. In a statement, the company’s CEO said that:
““Our business continues to perform well with good underlying momentum across the group, including in BetMGM. Our diversified revenue base and robust business model enable us to remain confident in our ability to deliver on our growth and sustainability strategy.”
Entain is operating in a difficult position. Online gaming has tumbled in the past few months as the momentum that existed during the pandemic waned. On a positive side, Entain’s BetMGM joint venture is doing well, helped by the strong NFL season. Further, the company reports in British pound while it has many international operations. Therefore, it will likely have positive forex tailwinds.
