GAN Releases Quarterly Key Performance Indicators for its 2017 First Quarter
Company Continues Issuing Regular Quarterly Metrics For the U.S. and Global Institutional Investment Community
GAN plc (“GAN” or the “Company”), an award-winning developer and supplier of enterprise-level B2B Internet gaming software, services and online gaming content in the United States, today announced the release of quarterly key performance indicators
for the first quarter of 2017. This allows the US and global institutional investment community to properly track progress of GAN’s diverse business on a quarterly basis.
Over the past nine months, GAN has begun to increase its institutional outreach to the United States, where the Company conducts the predominate portion of its business activities. The expanded financial information flow supports the increasing number of suitably-qualified US institutional investors who engaged with GAN’s equity story in late 2016 and early 2017. This second Quarterly publication discloses the Active Player-Days and Average Revenue Per Active Player-Day (ARPDAU), in which GAN participates worldwide in regulated real money Internet gaming markets and Simulated Gaming™.
Q2 2017 Key Performance Indicators will be released in July 2017.
First Quarter 2017 Highlights
· +9.3% Quarter-on-Quarter growth in Active Player-Days in Q1 2017 over Q4 2016 to 2,226,482 Active Player-Days.
· +3.7% Quarter-on-Quarter growth in Average Revenue Per Daily Active User in Q1 2017 over Q4 2016 to $7.69.
· Strong growth momentum in Q1 2017 from GAN’s key territories of the United States (Simulated Gaming™ and real money Internet gaming in New Jersey); and Italy’s regulated real money Internet gaming market.
· MGM Resort’s Borgata in New Jersey, Chickasaw Nation’s WinStar World Casino in Oklahoma and Station Casinos in Nevada are all launching Simulated Gaming with GAN in Q2 2017.
Dermot Smurfit, CEO of GAN commented:
“GAN continues to deliver its US growth story, moving ‘bricks & mortar’ US casinos online with its uniquely powerful Internet gaming platform which incorporates a wide range of features custom designed for US casino operators. The first quarter has seen strong progression in ARPDAU from end user players of Simulated Gaming, which continue to be materially higher than ARPDAU’s typically reported by Social Casino operators. We believe US casinos’ patrons are the highest-value players of Social Casino games and that US casino operators can materially increase their current share of their patrons’ wallet by launching Simulated Gaming in partnership with GAN.”
FAQ’s about GAN’s Simulated Gaming™ & real money online Regulated Gaming
· Launched in the US by GAN in January of 2014, Simulated Gaming™ has proven to monetize Internet traffic to existing websites operated by land-based US casinos with Simulated Gaming average revenue per daily active user (ARPDAU) of $2.75 in 2014, and $2.32 in 2015, compared as against an original estimate of $0.60, greatly exceeding equivalent numbers reported by Social Casino operators on Facebook.
· Supported by 156 months of operating data across ten (10) major US casinos’ deployments, Simulated Gaming™ has repeatedly proven to drive increased visitation on-property, and in 2014 delivered on average a +28% uplift in on-property theoretical win due to increased visitation by existing patrons who also engage with Simulated Gaming™ online.
· US casino operators report more than 50% of their surveyed casino patrons are already engaged in playing multiple Social Casinos online. Simulated Gaming™ enables land-based US casinos access to the Social Casino market worth $3.8 billion annually worldwide in 2016 (source: Eilers & Krejcik Gaming, LLC) and is proven to increase property visitation among existing patrons, reactivate lapsed patrons bringing them back on-property and drive acquisition of new patrons from outside the typical drive distance to the property.
