Industry outlook

AG is exposed to favourable growth trends. First, the online gaming market is enjoying structural growth due to increasing global wealth, internet/mobile penetration and regulation. The geographic markets to which AG currently has some exposure are forecast to grow gross gaming revenue (GGR; ie customer wagers less their winnings) from US$37.6bn in 2019 to US$69.1bn by 2025 (source: H2 Gambling Capital). Second, online gaming markets are highly competitive with differing levels of regulation. These combine to make the operation of an online gaming brand challenging, particularly when working across many geographies.
