”We continue to build long-term values ​​through agreements we entered into during the quarter, integrations we have made, as well as the products we have completed and started to launch with our partners. The effect of spring’s work has as anticipated, started to have an effect after the summer in connection to the start of the major sport leagues. We have previously been somewhat behind schedule, but have caught up after the end of the quarter and are now in line with expectations of achieving a solid revenue growth during the second half of 2019.

The network effect is now starting to get visible and we are moving towards the strongest sales month in Scout Gaming’s history. On our internal brand, we have seen a preliminary revenue increase of approximately 355% compared to August last year. The increase is representative of our customer base in general. The number of paying active users at our customer base has increased by about 300% compared to August 2018.

For the second year in a row, we won EGR B2B Awards for best fantasy product, which is clear proof that we are the market leader. Another example of this is our season-long Premier League game which this season has a record sum prize pool of SEK 2.5 million. The tournament has attracted nearly 10,000 registered teams and is recognized as the biggest European Fantasy Premier League tournament to date. Compared to last year’s season games for the Premier League, player turnover increased almost 250%.”
