Investment summary

Management reduced FY21 guidance to revenue of €93–98m (previously €100–110m) and an EBITDA loss of €10–14m (profit of €8–10m previously). The guidance includes €24.6m for litigation claims re Austrian online casino. Excluded from the reduced guidance are potential gaming levies paid by bet-at-home on the player losses to be reimbursed, which management will pursue with Austrian tax authorities. We estimate these at c €18m (€24.6m provision grossed up for the 40% levy). We assume no annual dividend will be declared for FY21 due to the expected loss.
