Richard Schwartz, Chief Executive Officer of RSI, said, “We are pleased with our first quarter results as we made great strides towards profitability with much improved Adjusted EBITDA performance.

“On the back of these excellent results, we remain on track to achieving our goal of profitability for the second half of this year. We are staying disciplined in our approach and successfully balancing growth and profitability over the long run. Our results continue to show the approach is working well and we remain confident that our focused strategy will reward our shareholders over the long term.”

Guidance

RSI expects revenue for the full year ending December 31, 2023 to be between $630 and $700 million, unchanged from its previous expectations. At the midpoint of the range, revenue of $665 million represents 12% year-over-year growth when compared to $592 million of revenues for 2022.

This range is based on certain assumptions, including that (i) only operations in live jurisdictions as of today’s date are included, (ii) all professional and college sports calendars that have been announced come to fruition, including the completion of their 2023 seasons, and (iii) RSI continues to operate in markets in which it is live today, except for Connecticut.
