The Group enjoyed another strong quarter with Group daily NGR +10% versus the same period last year and +13% in constant currency. This was particularly pleasing as the corresponding period last year was boosted by the final stages of the UEFA Euro 2016 tournament. Underlying1 NGR (which includes stripping out Euro 2016 and Kalixa - which was disposed of in May 2017) increased +18% and 21% in constant currency.

Within Sports Brands, the gross win margin for the period was 11.2% (10.5% Q3 2016), ahead of our expectations of the long-term sustainable average (c10%). Daily wagers were 4% ahead in constant currency, but as noted above, this was against a comparative period that included the Euro 2016 tournament - adjusting for this, underlying wager growth in constant currency was 8%. The strength of the underlying wager growth is a reflection of the success of the new bwin marketing campaign launched in August.

Games Brands daily NGR increased 15% (+17% in constant currency) over the same period last year. partypoker NGR grew 48% year on year, continuing to benefit from product improvement and increased marketing investment. Casino brands NGR also grew in Q3, whilst bingo returned to underlying growth during the period. The decline in B2B and non-core reflects the disposal of Kalixa in May 2017.

The Group has also enjoyed a strong start to Q4, albeit it is just over a week into the period.

Kenneth Alexander (CEO) said:

"Underlying1 growth in Q3 represents the highest rate achieved since the acquisition of in February 2016. The quick wins made in 2016 have been supplemented by further and continuous improvements across all areas of the business. GVC operates in an industry with significant opportunities and challenges. The combination of our talented employees, proven technology and strong brands, gives me confidence that we can continue to drive shareholder value."
