Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Codere Online has released its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2021.

In June 2021, Codere Online entered into a definitive business combination agreement with DD3 Acquisition Corp. II (DD3), a publicly-traded special purpose acquisition company, that upon consummation will result in Codere Online becoming a public company.

Highlights

  • Total net gaming revenue was €20.2m in the quarter and €61.9m in the year to date period.
  • Mexico net gaming revenue was €7.1m, an increase of 26% versus €5.6m in Q3 2020.
  • Total net gaming revenue outlook for 2021 of between €81m and €86m maintained.
  • Spanish gaming regulator has granted the Company’s request for a 10-year extension (through May 31, 2032) of two general online gaming licenses in Spain (sports betting and other games).
  • Company expects the business combination will be completed during the week following the special meeting of DD3’s stockholders, which is scheduled to take place on November 18, 2021.

Moshe Edree, Managing Director of Codere Online, said: “Our third quarter results reflect the strong revenue trends in Mexico, with a 26% year-on-year increase in our total net gaming revenue. This performance was partially offset by a decline in net gaming revenue in Spain due to the changes in regulation that came into effect starting in May, with Q3 2021 being the first full quarter of operations in which the ability to offer player bonuses and other marketing activities has been curtailed. However, we are adapting well to these restrictions and believe that there continues to be opportunity to grow our market share in Spain, as we have since the onset of these restrictions, which put operators that can leverage a retail footprint at a competitive advantage.”

Mr. Edree added: “In addition to the Rayados (Mexico) and River Plate (Argentina) sponsorships that we announced in July, we have recently announced a further 5 year extension (through the 2025-26 season) of our agreement with Real Madrid. This agreement will now cover over twenty countries throughout Latin America which we believe will boost our expansion in the region in furtherance of our ambitious growth targets.”

Oscar Iglesias, Chief Financial Officer, said: “Despite the anticipated regulatory headwinds in Spain, we continue to be excited about the market and have recently been granted a 10-year extension (through May 31, 2032) of our two general online gaming licenses (sports betting and other games), which were otherwise schedule to expire on June 1, 2022. More generally, the business continues to perform in line with our expectations and we are on track to meet our net gaming revenue outlook for 2021 of €81 to €86m.”

Mr. Iglesias further added: “We have made significant progress on the business combination with DD3, which we expect will be approved in its upcoming shareholder meeting on November 18, 2021. We are looking forward to closing the transaction and having the funding needed to execute our marketing plan and to delivering what we expect to be significant growth in this business over the coming years.”
