Key financial indicators for the half ending June 30th, 2019 were:
Commenting on the performance Flutter CEO Peter Jackson said, "All divisions are performing strongly on an underlying basis and have responded well to the challenges faced.
"In Europe, Paddy Power's recreational focus and great marketing execution has helped deliver continued growth in customers. The build-out of functionality for Betfair continues to make good progress, with sportsbook country specific pricing launched, along with additional languages and currencies.
"In Australia, Sportsbet's ongoing delivery of innovative products, appealing marketing and recreational focus has led to excellent performance.
"In the US, our FanDuel brand and product proposition enabled us to take 50% of the sports-betting market in New Jersey in H1. We are delighted with this performance and have been encouraged by the regulatory momentum that has seen 10 states regulate online sports betting since the repeal of PASPA.
"I am pleased with what we have achieved in the first half and we are confident we can make further good progress in H2."
