CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER'S STATEMENT

I am pleased to present the Interim Report for the six months ended 30 June 2013. This has been a very important period in the development of the Group, with 24/7 Gaming Group Holdings plc successfully raising € 1,700,000 (£ 1,445,000) during the first six months of the year.  An additional € 2,100,000 (approximately £ 1,785,000) before expenses was raised conditional to having the Company's shares admitted to trading on AIM, which took place on 31 July 2013. The admission to AIM was as a key stepping-stone for the Group. The new funds will enable the Group to accelerate its marketing campaigns and the profile afforded by its public listing will allow 24/7 to position itself in European and other overseas markets.

 
Business review

Current Trading

The WannaGaming mobile casino portfolio is currently fully available to access through mobile devices. The Group has undertaken several test marketing campaigns over the last few months, through multiple publishers, to optimise its marketing spend. The Group has focused most of its marketing so far on the UK.

In the first six months of 2013, WannaGaming registered over 3,000 new players, of which 1,457 placed a wager. The average deposit per player over the period January 2013 - June 2013 amounted to €314. The Directors believe that these are encouraging results considering the small amount spent on marketing and given the fact that these players remain active.

With the funds received on admission, the Group is rolling out its new marketing campaigns.


Outlook

We continue to focus on building the WannaGaming brand and acquiring new players for the mobile casino business.

NOTES TO THE INTERIM CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
FOR THE SIX MONTHS ENDED 30 JUNE 2013

 

1              Basis of preparation

The interim consolidated financial statements incorporate the results of 24/7 Gaming Group Holding Plc (the "Company") and entities controlled by the Company (its subsidiaries) (collectively the "Group").

The interim consolidated financial statements are unaudited, do not constitute statutory accounts and were approved by the Board of directors on 25 September 2013.

Between 13 December 2012 and 3 July 2013 the Company, 24/7 Gaming Group NV and shareholders of

24/7 Gaming Group NV entered into share exchange agreements pursuant to which the Company acquired approximately 99.77 per cent of the issued share capital of 24/7 Gaming Group NV and became the Group's parent company.  This acquisition has been treated in these financial statements as a continuation of the businesses and is therefore considered by the directors as outside the scope of IFRS 3, since no business combination is occurring.

The preparation of interim consolidated financial statements requires management to make judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the application of accounting policies and the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, income and expense. Actual results may differ from these estimates.

In preparing the interim consolidated financial statements, the significant judgements made by management in applying the Group's accounting policies and the key sources of estimation uncertainty were the same as those that applied to the consolidated financial statements as at and for the year ended 31 December 2012.

The accounting policies applied by the Group in the interim consolidated financial statements comply with each International Financial Reporting Standards that is mandatory for accounting for the six months ended 30 June 2013. These policies are consistent with those to be adopted in the Group's consolidated financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2013.

The principal risks and uncertainties of the Group have not changed since the last annual financial statements and the Admission Document (31 July 2013) where a detailed explanation of such risks and uncertainties can be found.



 

2.            Segmental information

An operating segment is a component of the Group that engages in business activities from which it may earn revenues and incur expenses, including revenues and expenses that relate to transactions with any of the Group's other components. All operating segments' operating results are reviewed regularly by the Group's CEO to make decisions about resources to be allocated to the segment and to assess its performance, and for which discrete financial information is available.

In the opinion of the directors, the Group has two reportable operating segments as follows:

- Mobile gaming
- Video Console publishing

A split of the revenue generated by these segments is as follows:

 

6 months ended 30 June 2013

3.            Taxation

Taxation of the Company and its subsidiaries is recognised based on the rules and regulations of their respective countries of incorporation.

A deferred tax asset has been recognised as at 30 June 2013 and as at the two preceding balance sheet dates based on the Group's cumulative loss before tax up to and including the year ended 31 December 2012. The directors believe that there will be sufficient future taxable profit within the business in order to utilise these losses.
