bet365 launch new Racing Post South African racing content

(PRESS RELEASE) — bet365 has become the first bookmaker to go live with Racing Post South African content across their estate following the recent launch of Racing Post’s international horse racing content.

The content includes information familiar to those who use a British or Irish race card, including silks, form, comments, verdicts and star ratings.

Racing Post has been providing expert independent content to bet365 customers on all U.K. and Irish racing for a number of years. The extension of the partnership now leaves their audience better informed and more knowledgeable about the upcoming South African races, bringing them closer to the action.

Speaking about the expansion of the partnership to international horseracing content, Simon Betteley of bet365, spoke about the value of having Racing Post content when customers are betting on territories they are not as familiar with.

Betteley said, “We’ve had a strong partnership with Racing Post for a number of years and they are the independent authority on British and Irish horse racing. Their content is incredibly valuable to our customers and I’m delighted to announce we have expanded the partnership for South African racing.”

He continued, “The content is hugely important for races taking place further afield as it gives customers just as much insight and information on the field as it would in the U.K. The content allows them to make informed decisions before placing a bet.”

Racing Post Key Partnerships Manager, Caroline Bushell spoke about the continued relationship between bet365 and the Racing Post and how growing the partnership was excellent for both businesses, “We’ve worked with bet365 for a number of years and it is excellent to have an array of content live across the site of one of the biggest bookmakers in the world. We know the value punters place on our content in the U.K. and Ireland and we’re delighted bet365 will continue to offer this support to their customers for new territories.”


Edison Partners invests $15.5 million in Group

(PRESS RELEASE) — Group Plc entered into an agreement with Edison Partners regarding a $15.5 million investment into the Group. Edison is a growth equity investment firm which manages more than $1.4 billion in assets and is based in New Jersey, the new hub of regulated online gambling in America.

The agreement represents one of the most significant deals between a U.S. private equity fund and a performance marketing company focused on online gambling and sports betting. Group is the fastest growing and one of the most awarded leaders in performance marketing for the global online gambling industry with a particular focus on European markets. The Group expects the U.S. market to grow in size to rival that of the current European one in the coming years.

Charles Gillespie, Chief Executive of Group, says, “We have been thoroughly impressed by Edison Partners’ depth of expertise, breadth of knowledge and professional network. We greatly look forward to bringing on Edison as our teammate in our new American journey. Edison is the right partner at the right time, and I expect our collaboration to deliver powerful results. Their investment in the Group validates our thesis that we are the performance marketing and content platform best positioned to benefit from the expansion of regulated online gambling in the United States.”

The addition of Edison Partners to the Group’s list of investors gives the Group a strategic American growth equity partner who will help advance the Group’s objectives, particularly in its home state of New Jersey and throughout its network in the northeastern United States. As the National Football League officially kicks off, 13 states now take legal sports bets, with at least six more slated to take bets in the coming months.

“We are thrilled to enter the online gaming market with our investment in Group,” said Chris Sugden, Managing Partner at Edison Partners. “The company will continue to monetize the large market opportunity in Europe while increasing investment in the U.S. Online gaming is expanding significantly as regulations are modified on a state-by-state basis.”

The Group has been executing a comprehensive plan to be the leading performance marketing company within the regulated online gambling sector in the United States since before the invalidation of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) in May 2018. The Group’s flagship website is already active in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and the Group is investing substantial resources in to make it the pre-eminent source of sports betting information in the United States. The Group has secured licenses to expand business deals with gambling operators in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and West Virginia and has broadened its footprint with key management hires, a new office in Charlotte, North Carolina, and by becoming the first sports betting media group to be accepted as members of the Associated Press Sports Editors (APSE).

“Attention to sports gambling in the U.S. is booming, and we are building out a robust content team, offering products to match that interest,” Group Director of North American Content Gerry Ahern said. “On we are providing a real-time lens for sports fans that educates, entertains and informs them as they explore legal wagering options. On we are keeping the audience up to date with industry news and the latest in legislation as more states come online and more fans are served.”

Proceeds will be used by the Group for general corporate purposes with a view to accelerating certain investments in the United States market.

“With an exceptionally strong brand, robust content creation strategy, player-focused editorial point of view and proven marketing capabilities, Group is well positioned to become the leading provider of new customers to U.S.-based online sportsbook and iGaming operators,” said Gregg Michaelson, Partner at Edison Partners, who will sit on the company’s board of directors after the transaction closes. “ Group founder and CEO Charles Gillespie is an industry leading business operator who brings the same ethical and compliant approach to the U.S. gaming market as he has in Europe.”

The investment by Edison in the Group will be satisfied through a combination of new ordinary shares in Group and through a sale of existing ordinary shares in Group by an existing shareholder. The investment will sit in Edison Partners’ latest fund closed in December 2018, their ninth fund with a size of $365 million.
