Parimatch Tech: from restructuring to becoming one of Reuters’ 50 Leaders of Change



Reading Time: 3 minutes


Parimatch Tech was just named one of Reuters’ 50 Leaders of Change. In a project that highlights global companies leading the way towards a new tomorrow in a series of video documentaries, the company became an editor’s pick to showcase the innovativeness, technical focus, and sustainability of the modern online entertainment industry.

An achievement in itself, it becomes even more significant in the context in which Parimatch Tech has found itself over the past year. After the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the company, as well as other businesses operating or originating from Ukraine, faced many challenges on an unprecedented scale. However, while maintaining its inherent flexibility and adaptability, Parimatch Tech took several steps that allowed it to gain momentum despite the war and its challenges.

Exiting from the markets of Russia and Belarus

As soon as Russia’s full-scale military invasion of Ukraine began, the Supervisory board of Parimatch Tech decided to withdraw the franchise from the aggressor country. The process of brand withdrawal from the market concluded on March 26 with the complete disconnection of the Parimatch platform from Russia. A few months later, in the summer, Parimatch Tech’s exit from the Belarus market also ended with the sale of the local business unit and the termination of all relations.

Refocusing strategic objectives

The disposal of several geos, as well as the general situation in the global market, raised questions about what awaits the company next. Parimatch Tech accelerated the implementation of long-standing plans to move into the B2B industry and during the year rolled out a set of products that it was ready to offer to operator customers:

  • iGaming platform, which is now one of the fastest-growing in Eastern Europe and successfully handles millions of active players; 
  • Parimatch brand franchise that grants access to the brand’s top-notch platform, reputable name, and a formidable list of global partnerships;
  • BaaS, or Business as a Service, combines all the advantages of the Parimatch Tech platform, industry expertise, and management excellence. 

Compliance of the product with the highest industry standards was confirmed by GLI19 and GLI33 certificates from Gaming Laboratories International (GLI). And the platform was shortlisted twice for prestigious industry awards: SBC Awards (Platform of the year) and EGR Operator Awards (In-house product category).

Supporting Ukrainian resilience

All of 2022’s achievements would be impossible without people who, despite the war, demonstrated fantastic performance in various areas. Support for Ukraine and Ukrainians, including the company’s employees, became the cornerstone of Parimatch Tech’s efforts in the past year. 

In May, the company opened a new office in Prague, the Czech Republic, which not only contributed to business expansion in Europe but also provided much-needed support for all displaced because of the war employees throughout Europe. In 2022, the Prague office grew from only ten people to over 65 employees. 

Parimatch Tech brought Ukraine-focused discussions on the international stage of Web Summit 2022 in Lisbon, Portugal. The resilience of Ukrainian businesses and their stories of despite-the-war success became, once again, an inspiration and a source of insights for over 70,000 Web Summit attendees. 

Since the first days of the invasion, Parimatch Tech and its people have helped Ukraine in its struggle for freedom: through donations, volunteering, coordination of corporate charity projects, and the work of the Parimatch Foundation. Previously focused on educational and sports projects for children, the Foundation has added projects aimed at helping Ukrainian women and children survive the war, get to safety, and take care of their physical and mental health. In 2022, over 600 civilians were evacuated from the war-affected areas, more than 60 tons of humanitarian aid was provided, and over  € 1 million was directed to help victims of the war.

This sustainable approach, as well as a strong tech core and focus on performance success became key factors in Parimatch Tech’s becoming one of Reuters’ 50 Leaders of Change. Whatever comes next for the company, it will continue using its cutting-edge technology and social causes to drive the industry into its sustainable technological future. 

We are on the verge of a very important change that will officially kickstart our B2B journey. The plans ahead of us are ambitious, yet we are up to the task because our core stays the same: the challenge is a part of our DNA. And with such drive, anything is possible! We will continue to grow and prevail, contributing to many victories of 2023,” said Evgen Belousov, Deputy CEO of Parimatch Tech.

For every scanned QR code and subsequent registration on the Meridian Foundation’s website, funds will be allocated towards equipping five maternity hospitals in Serbia. This innovative approach not only raises awareness but also actively involves the community in our CSR activities.

The initiative is currently ongoing with high media presence and is broadcasted during Southeast Europe’s regional basketball Finals series (ABA League). BC Red Star players wear jerseys featuring the QR code, with additional promotion through basketball arena ads, TV ads, and more, encouraging fans and supporters to participate.

A Unified Effort for Community Impact

The ‘Scan. Help.’ campaign is a collaborative effort involving Meridianbet, Meridianbet foundation, Expanse Studios, and basketball club Crvena zvezda Meridianbet, Southeast Europe’s leading basketball club, of which Meridianbet is the name sponsor. The initiative is designed to leverage our collective resources and influence to make a meaningful impact on local communities.

Multi-Stakeholder Support and Growing Participation

The ‘Scan. Help.’ campaign has received institutional support ad backing from the Ministry of Health, reinforcing the importance and legitimacy of this cause. Additionally, several companies have already expressed their desire to contribute, with provisions made for donations through the Meridian Foundation’s account. This broadening support network amplifies the initiative’s reach and potential impact.

This campaign exemplifies Meridianbet’s dedication to sustainable development and community well-being. In 2023 alone, the company has launched 225 CSR campaigns, reflecting the commitment to making a lasting impact.
