Commenting on the results Unibet CEO Henrik Tjärnström said, "Unibet delivered 28% year on year growth in gross winnings revenue in the third quarter (22% excluding the impact of exchange rate changes million). This was achieved despite the excellent summer weather in many of our key markets and high numbers of favorites winning. The growth was wholly organic and demonstrates continued increases in market share."
"It is also satisfying to report that underlying EBITDA for the third quarter increased in line with the growth in revenues, demonstrating improved scalability despite the significant investments Unibet has made in information mining, local regulation and in Kambi."
