Catena Media acquires casino affiliate Newcasinos.com

Published

on

Catena Media continues to strengthen its position as Europe’s fastest growing company in lead generation, through the acquisition of Newcasinos.com and related affiliate assets.

 

Newcasinos.com is one of the fastest growing casino affiliate, specialising in rating and reviewing new online casinos. It was launched in 2015 with the aim to update casino players with the latest trends and news. New Casinos’ markets are mainly UK as well as Sweden and Norway and through its niche focus the acquisition will provide Catena Media with an opportunity for product segmentation. The acquired assets are expected to generate quarterly sales of about EUR 550.000 with an operating margin of around 80 percent. The underlying UK market is currently growing quickly, further strengthening Catena Media’s position in regulated markets.

The transfer of the assets and payment is scheduled to take place no later than the 15thof July 2017. The purchase price amounts to an upfront payment of EUR 7.650.000, which is being paid as a cash consideration in conjunction with the transfer of the assets. In addition, there is an earn-out of maximum EUR 4.250.000, which is based on revenue performance over a period of 12 months. In a reasonably expected scenario with a total earn-out purchase price of EUR 3.25 million, the seller needs to generate revenue growth between 25 and 50 percent during the period.

Catena Media has been in the forefront of the consolidation in the affiliate market and wants to keep a leading role. The company is predominantly focusing on larger assets since we are well positioned to capitalize on our size and growth. With this acquisition we are acquiring another successful online casino affiliate to complement and strengthen our portfolio. The sellers have demonstrated a solid growth and an interesting content offering. This is fully in line with our strategy of partly growing through acquisitions and continuing our solid growth story”, says Robert Andersson, CEO of Catena Media.

iGaming Leader Soft2Bet Showcases MEGA Solutions to the US Market at NEXT Summit New York

Soft2Bet, a leading B2B casino and sportsbook platform provider, made its forthcoming U.S. launch known last week at NEXT.io’s premier North American iGaming and Sports Betting Summit, NEXT Summit New York 2024. At the event, which was attended by some of the biggest names in the industry, Soft2Bet showed off its Motivational Engineering Gaming Application (MEGA) solutions and met with some of the biggest industry players in the United States.

Ahead of Soft2Bet’s expected New Jersey license later this year, members of the team including David Yatom Hay, General Council; Martin Collins, Chief Business Development Officer; and Ohad Straschnov, Senior Compliance Director, met with operators, regulators, and potential partners who expressed great interest in bringing MEGA solutions to the U.S.

“It was great to get some facetime with those helping us bring our offering to the States,” said Yatom. “Since we are first bringing our B2C product into the state as a proof of concept for future B2B partners, there seems to be quite a bit of excitement around seeing how our MEGA solutions and localization features will translate in the US.”

On Wednesday March 6, Collins participated in a fireside chat with Business Insider Media Editor Ashley Rodriguez. The presentation, titled Redefining the North American Online Gambling Experience, covered the need for operators to switch strategies from heavily investing in acquisition and promotional activity, to focusing more on better ROI tech innovations, such as MEGA, which boost retention and screen time.

“We believe proper gamification can be a true game changer within this market,” said Collins. “It’s not your traditional tournaments and awards we’ve seen across the market the last five to ten years. Within the industry, the user experience is fairly weak compared to other verticals, so we looked at what’s offering the best customer experience, and that’s coming from casual gaming. This is why we started developing solutions that match these incredibly engaging user experiences.”

“So it’s essentially trying to recreate the experience you’d find in free mobile games and use that to keep people in the ecosystem and keep them coming back,” replied Rodriguez.

Following a successful NEXT Summit, Soft2Bet will once again be returning to the U.S. to showcase its new innovations and meet with partners in the market at SBC Summit North America from May 8 to 9, 2024. Martin Collins will be presenting a keynote at the iGaming stage on May 8 at 2:40 p.m.
