Trading Update and Conclusion of Review of Strategic Alternatives

Company to Host Conference Call at 4:00 PM BST (11am EST / 8am PST) to Discuss Financial Results, Strategic Review, and Outlook for 2019
 
 
London | 13 September 2019: GAN plc (“GAN” or the “Group”), a leading B2B supplier of Internet gambling enterprise software-as-a-service solutions to the land-based casino industry, today announces the conclusion to its review of strategic alternatives commenced on 29 March 2019, and provides a trading update.
 
Trading Update
 
Trading is significantly ahead of the Board’s expectations for the eight (8) months up to and including August 31, 2019. As of June 30, 2019, the group’s cash balance was £9.1 million and holds no debt on its balance sheet.
 
Conclusion of Strategic Review
 
As set out in the announcement on 29 March, 2019, GAN has been undertaking a review considering strategic alternatives including a Formal Sale Process ("FSP"). The purpose of the FSP was to explore the merits of the Group remaining as an independent organisation, relative to the alternative options available to the Group being reviewed. Union Gaming has undertaken the FSP and interest from a number of organisations, across a range of geographies, has been explored.
 
The Company received multiple bids from multiple parties during the FSP. In the context of the Company’s rapid and accelerating growth year-to-date and growth trajectory of the business moving forwards, the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) in consultation with its advisors has determined that the bids received did not represent fair value for shareholders. 
 
As a result, the Board has concluded that it is unlikely that the FSP would produce the most attractive outcome from the review of strategic alternatives. The Board has therefore decided to terminate the FSP and the Company is no longer in an offer period under the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers (the "Code") and the requirement to make disclosures under Rule 8 of the Takeover Code in relation to the Company has now ceased.
 
The outcome of the review of strategic alternatives is that the Company is now committed to procuring a U.S. listing as soon as reasonably practicable, and will provide an update with the publication of the Group’s full year 2019 results.
