Bwin.Party Digital Entertainment agrees American joint venture with MGM Resorts and Boyd Gaming - 2nd November 2011

Bwin.Party Digital Entertainment Plc has announced details of a joint venture agreement with US bricks and mortar casino groups MGM Resorts International and Boyd Gaming Corp that will see them offer online poker in America should it become regulated and licensed.

The deal will see bwin.party, MGM and Boyd form a jointly-owned US-based company (‘Federal NewCo’) with bwin.party owning 65%, MGM owning 25% and Boyd owning 10%. Should federal legislation be enacted the joint venture would offer online poker to US players via the World Poker Tour and PartyPoker brands with bwin.party providing the software and support. Should US poker be legalised at the state rather than federal level a new stand-alone company would be created to develop opportunities on a state by state basis.

“Our strategy has been designed to address any and all legislative outcomes, whether federal or state-by-state.” said Jim Ryan and Norbert Teufelberger, the Co-CEOs of bwin.party. “We are particularly excited to be working with MGM and Boyd. Combining their significant assets and regulatory expertise with the strength of our PartyPoker and World Poker Tour brands, all supported by our in-house technology, makes us perfectly positioned for any future opening of the US online poker market.”

In addition to the customer facing deal, bwin.party, MGM and Boyd also revealed details of a two separate 15-year business to business agreements that would “enable them to offer real money online poker services under their own brands in the US using the bwin.party technology platform and associated services.”

Jim Murren, Chairman and CEO of MGM Resorts International, said 'MGM has long been supportive of federal legislation to strengthen UIGEA and provide the needed regulations and consumer protections for online poker. MGM is proud to have bwin.party as our partner as they have the assets and experience that, combined with our brands, can ensure a secure, fair and entertaining online poker experience.”

Keith Smith, President and CEO of Boyd Gaming, added “We believe the right approach to offering legal online poker in the United States is through a federal regulatory structure that ensures the games are conducted with the greatest possible integrity and security. Should Congress enact legislation to legalise Internet poker, this agreement will allow us to partner with the world’s most experienced and prestigious online operator to offer a secure, fair and entertaining experience for players in the United States.”

bwin.party also confirmed that it is set to enter a preliminary suitability review with the Nevada Gaming Control Board in order to secure an advanced finding of suitability in anticipation of future US-facing real money poker opportunities.

Press Release

bwin and PartyGaming present details on the merger (bwin release)

23rd December 2010

Announcement by bwin Interactive Entertainment AG (“bwin”)

Below is the text of an announcement issued today by bwin.

bwin and PartyGaming present details on the merger

bwin.party digital entertainment will be the world’s largest publicly listed online gaming provider.

Vienna, 23 December 2010 - The merger plan presented by bwin Interactive Entertainment AG and PartyGaming Plc will create the world's largest publicly listed online gaming group – a group that will be ideally positioned to take advantage of the rapid consolidation of the online gaming industry and to open up new markets around the world. The annual synergies resulting from this merger are expected to total approximately 55 million Euros: it is anticipated that about three quarters of this amount will be achieved in the financial year 2012, with full synergies from 2013.

Brands to be retained
“The online gaming industry is going through a phase of consolidation, making market players’ size and geographic diversification more crucial than ever,” explains Norbert Teufelberger, Co-CEO of bwin. The new company will operate worldwide with its existing brands under the name of bwin.party digital entertainment plc, in which current bwin shareholders are expected to hold 51.7 per cent of the shares and current PartyGaming shareholders 48.3 per cent. “Our products and target markets complement one another perfectly, and we can continue to expand our technology lead in all key product segments: sports betting, poker, casino, bingo and games,” according to Teufelberger.

Strong capital structure and customer liquidity
Like PartyGaming in the past, bwin.party will have its headquarters in Gibraltar and be listed on the London Stock Exchange. Besides a clear focus on B2C products, the company will also steadily expand its B2B and B2G business. “Our many years of online know-how, healthy balance sheet, and one of the largest pools of poker liquidity in any regulated market will make us an attractive business partner,” clarifies Teufelberger, who will head up the company as Co-CEO together with Jim Ryan, PartyGaming’s current CEO. The business operations of bwin in Austria will be retained, where a newly founded subsidiary, bwin Services AG will support selected areas of the group in Vienna.

From merger plan to completion
The merger plan published today contains full details of the planned merger, and can be downloaded together with other documents from bwin’s corporate website at www.bwin.org. The Executive Board of bwin will be convening an Extraordinary General Meeting on 28 January 2011 at which it will recommend shareholders to vote for the merger. Provided the general meetings of both bwin and PartyGaming approve this merger, all shareholders holding bwin shares when the merger becomes legally effective – expected to be towards the end of the first quarter of 2011 – will receive 12.23 PartyGaming shares denominated in GBP for each bwin share. This share swap will be carried out automatically and free of charge.

Any shareholders not wishing to become shareholders in bwin.party can sell their shares beforehand on the Vienna Stock Exchange or exercise their entitlement to a cash settlement. The amount of the cash settlement has been set at 23.52 Euros. The exchange ratio and the cash compensation amount have been confirmed as adequate by independent experts.

About bwin
The bwin Group has over 20 million registered customers in more than 25 core markets. On a number of different platforms, the Group offers sports betting, poker, casino games, soft and skill games, as well as audio and video streams of top sporting events such as the German Soccer League. The holding company bwin Interactive Entertainment AG is listed in the ATX on the Vienna Stock Exchange (ID code BWIN, Reuters ID code BWIN.VI), and as the parent company provides various services such as software development, marketing, communications, human resources and finance for its subsidiaries and associated companies. The operational business of the bwin Group is carried out by subsidiaries and associated companies on the basis of licences (e.g. Germany, Italy and Gibraltar). Full details about the Company can be found on its investor relations website at www.bwin.org.

US mid-term fears hit PartyGaming

PartyGaming was one of the big fallers among the FTSE 250 today, amid speculation over the US elections.

The online poker giant was down 4% to 251p. The sector is watching the US mid-term elections closely in order to gauge what impact they might have.

The story this morning was that staunch supporter of the sector and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid might lose his Nevada Senate seat.

The latest telephone survey put Reid's rival Sharron Angle at 49% to Reid's 45%.

Events across the pond were the key to a subdued market this morning. At 12 o'clock the FTSE 100 was down just 17 points ahead of US GDP data at 1:30.

Expectations are for annualised growth of 2%. The pound was at $1.5901 at midday ahead of the announcement.

Other movers on the London market this morning included Centrica up 2% to 329p.

Prudential was up slightly, 0.5p up to 631p, as the positive sentiment from AIA's listing in Hong Kong fed through.

AIA rose 17% on its debut, with its market value topping $35.5bn

 

PartyGaming gains from European court ruling on German monopoly

Investors are taking a punt on online gambling companies following a ruling than German restrictions breached European law.

The European Court of Justice ruled there should not be a state monolopy of sports bets and lotteries in Germany, potentially opening up new opportunities for the online gaming groups. PartyGaming shares have climbed 12.9p to 285.5p on the news while its merger partner - Austria's Bwin - is more than 6% higher. 888 Holdings is up 1.25p at 41.75p while Sportingbet has added 0.25p to 67.25p.

Overall, a positive start on Wall Street has helped support the FTSE 100, which is now up 29.10 points at 5436.92. Arm continues to be the top riser, while BP is off its best levels following the release of its own report into the Gulf of Mexico disaster, now up 5.95p at 412.75p.

Rocky Slot Game Hits PartyGaming - Noble Casino

The new Rocky slot game has become Playtech’s most sought after title as online gaming fans flock to box as Rocky Balboa.

The great features of Playtech’s video slot have made the game one of the most popular of all time. Rocky Slots sets the pace for PartyGaming and Playtech, with Pink Panther soon to follow.

Rocky Slots traces the fortunes of the kind hearted south paw Rocky Balboa from the 1976 film starring Sylvester Stallone. The game has fast and well designed features and game play as well as a pounding soundtrack to match...this really gets the excitement and adrenaline flowing! Bonus features include a special Knockout Bonus round where players can pick Rocky’s opponents, watch a ten round boxing match and win big money.

Playtech have upped the ante with Rocky Slots as the game features more advanced graphics, better sound and more sophisticated detail than other similar games. This makes Rocky Slots an absolute knock out to play.

The spinning reels sound like a punch bag to make players feel that they are hearing Rocky train in his favourite Philadelphia gym. Players need to spell out ROCKY on the 5 reels in order to receive an instant 5x total bet payout. And if you manage to achieve this in the free spin rounds you will receive a massive 10x total bet payout!

Perhaps the more impressive feature of the Rocky Slots game from Playtech is the Knockout Bonus Round. This is where players choose from three prize fights to spar against Rocky in a ten round match – including the famous film world champion Apollo Creed. The player watches the stunning fight from a front line seat, featuring real footage from the fight scenes in the film.

During the Knockout Bonus Round players have the chance of winning up to a 30x total bet payout if Rocky manages to knock his opponent out in a fast enough time. Go Rocky!

PartyGaming also offer PartyCasino.com which offers dozens more movie and TV themed slot games, as well as other online casino games that can be played for free or played for money.

PartyGaming was established in 1997 and is listed on the London Stock Exchange.

PartyGaming has won a ‘Gold Award’ from the Gambling Research, Education and Treatment Foundation in recognition of its financial and professional contributions towards tackling problem gambling. Formerly known as the Responsibility in Gambling Trust, the GREaT Foundation was established as a charity in 2002 and is Britain’s largest funding body responsible for tackling problem gambling through financing research, education and treatment from voluntary donations.

PartyPartners, which is PartyGaming’s affiliate marketing programme, has been awarded the eCOGRA Affiliate Trust Seal. The award certifies that PartyPartners observes best practice for fairness and efficiency in dealing with affiliate marketers. eGOGRA is the independent standards authority for the online gaming industry, overseeing fair gaming, player protection and responsible operator conduct.

Commenting on the award, eCOGRA chief executive Andrew Beveridge said:
“We were impressed by the competency of both PartyPartners’ staff and their systems, which we thoroughly tested at full capacity to determine efficiency and consistency levels.

PartyGaming pursues takeover deals, sales fall - 6th July 2010

* In talks with a number of parties

* Committed to active role in consolidation

* Q2 revenue down 2 pct

LONDON, July 6 (Reuters) - Online gambling group PartyGaming said it was continuing to pursue takeover opportunities with a number of parties as it reported a 2 percent decline in second quarter revenue.

The group, which is reported to have held merger talks with Austria's bwin, said on Tuesday it was looking to play an active role in consolidation of the industry and was confident about its future prospects.

"Whilst progress on consolidating the online gaming industry has been slower than expected, we remain committed to playing an active role and are continuing to pursue opportunities with a number of parties," said Chief Executive Jim Ryan.

Analysts say the online gaming industry is ripe for consolidation because of its fragmented nature and a mooted deal between PartyGaming and bwin had been seen as a potential catalyst for a wave of takeover activity.

PartyGaming, which operates the PartyPoker and PartyCasino sites, said overall trading had been in line with the board's expectations despite the summer weather and the World Cup providing alternative attractions for gamblers.

Market expectations for full year earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortisation range between $144.7 million and $163.7 million, with the consensus at $149.2 million, according to a Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S poll of 9 analysts.

Shares in PartyGaming closed on Monday at 220.8 pence, valuing the business at 892 million pounds.

The club is understood to sport in excess of 100,000 members. Aviation Club will join PartyGaming's French poker network when laws permits it to go ahead.

Aviation Club de France will join other gaming operators on the network including PartyGaming's own France-facing site, PartyGaming.fr, current French racing powerhouse Pari-Mutuel Urbain (PMU), and television broadcaster AB Groupe, following an agreement inked last month.

PartyGaming Results Decline Slightly
25th November 2008

Gibraltar-based online gaming provider PartyGaming has released its results for the third quarter of the year showing strong growth in its casino, bingo and sportsbetting businesses but a decline in revenues from poker.

PartyGaming revealed that poker revenues for the third quarter were down to $65 million from the $76.3 million it earned during the same period last year. The firm stated that this was due to lower player frequency and yield and also reported that nine-month revenues from poker decreased one percent to $218.9 million.

However, revenues from its casino business grew 25 percent to $45.9 million for the third quarter from the $36.7 million it reported for the same period last year due to higher player numbers and yields. Nine-month revenues from its casino business fared even better by increasing 33 percent to $135.8 million.

In addition, its sportsbetting division reported that revenues grew by 19 percent for the quarter to $5.1 million from the $4.3 million it reported for the same period last year due to continued growth in live betting. It declared nine-month revenues from sportsbetting of $14.1 million, which was 29 percent up on the $10.9 million it acknowledged for last year.

Completing the good news, bingo revenues were up by 143 percent to $1.7 million for the short-term from the $700,000 announced for 2007’s third quarter due to a growth in the firm’s UK business. Just as spectacular, nine-month revenues from bingo increased 106 percent to $3.7 million from 2007’s $1.8 million.

Overall, PartyGaming reported total revenues of $117.7 million for the quarter, which was $300,000 less than last year’s third quarter, alongside an eleven percent rise in nine-month results to $372.5 million.

“We are making solid progress on executing our strategic plan, albeit against a challenging economic backdrop and strengthening US Dollar,” said Jim Ryan, Chief Executive Officer for PartyGaming.

Party Gaming CEO Discusses Future of Online Poker, by Earl Burton - Poker News Daily - 6th January 2009


The recent news in December of Party Gaming co-founder Anurag Dikshit’s plea bargain with the U.S. Department of Justice thrust the company back into the spotlight. Now, in a December 28th interview with Financial Times, new Chief Executive Officer Jim Ryan has announced his plans for returning the company to the lofty perch it once held.

The article, written by Roger Blitz, points out that it has been a very difficult couple of years for the one-time monolith in the online poker world. After its initial public offering (IPO) on the London Stock Exchange in 2005, Party Gaming was valued at almost £5 billion. Since the departure of U.S. players due to the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA) in 2006 and the subsequent decision by then-CEO Mitch Garber to withdraw from the market, Party Gaming’s value has fallen to under £1 billion. However, as Blitz states, there could be “a light at the end of what has been a long, dark tunnel” for Party Gaming.

The light that Blitz refers to is the mid-December decision by Dikshit to succumb to Department of Justice pressures and plead guilty to violations of the Wire Act of 1961. In submitting his guilty plea, Dikshit paid a $300 million fine and could face a two year jail term, although sentencing will not occur until 2010. He continues to assist the United States Government in its investigations into online gaming.

In the article, Ryan - who took over for Gerber in June of 2008 - states that Party Gaming is currently in discussions with the U.S. Department of Justice regarding the company’s liabilities, but wouldn’t go into great detail. The article did discuss that the shares of Party Gaming on the London Exchange have grown to 200 pence each and that a deal with the U.S. government is looming sometime this month.

When asked about the future of the company, Ryan was upbeat about Party Gaming’s abilities in not only online poker, but also in a realm of online gaming options. “This is a marathon, not a sprint,” Ryan is quoted as saying in the Financial Times article by Blitz. “We have been chasing quarterly profits, but the market has become so competitive, you’ve got to know where you’re going. We’re not so much slowing down, but keeping ourselves focused.”

The three year plan that Ryan has set for Party Gaming is something that he believes that other online gaming companies want to do, but his company already does. The Financial Times quotes Ryan as saying that the company, since its exodus from the U.S. market, has built a complete gaming operation that is focused on all aspects of the online world, including poker, casino, sports betting, bingo, and backgammon. “[We offer] different products with one back office platform,” he explains in Blitz’s article. “One deposit, one account – it’s a one stop shop. That is still the main strategic objective for a number of our competitors and we have it already.”

Ryan also states that he sees a day when the online gaming world will be vastly different than what is out there today. While poker remains the focus of Party Gaming, Ryan sees over the next three years that there will only be five online poker operators of any consequence. Party Gaming at this time ranks fourth in that equation - something that “hurts,” according to Ryan - but his quote in the Financial Times piece looms large: “We need to retake the hill and position ourselves to be that leader again.” (Credit: Poker News Daily)

 

 

Party Gaming Full-Year Results Released

Poker disappoints in latest financial numbers

March 11, 2009 (InfoPowa News) -- Party Gaming plc may have started out as a primarily online poker destination, but the performance of this sector of its wider group activities was disappointing last year, judged by the 2008 full-year financials released this week. Poker net revenues declined by $21 million to $274 million (2007: $295 million).

Elsewhere the outlook was rosier, with online casino net revenues up $31,8 million to $176 million; the more recent sportsbetting venture up $1.9 million to $18 million and Bingo up $2.4 million to $4.9 million.

Total net revenues reached $472.9 million, down $3.1 million on the corresponding period in 2007 after a "non-recurring net revenue adjustment" of $18.2 million.

Other highlights included:

* Continuing Clean EBITDA up 29 percent to $144.2 million (2007: $111.7 million); total Clean EBITDA up 53 percent to $133.3 million (2007: $87.0 million)

* The addition of DM plc and CIRSA to the Party Gaming portfolio of business-to-business (‘B2B’) customers

* Cash flow from operations before working capital movements up 23 percent to $132.5 million (2007: $107.6 million) with group cash after client liabilities and progressive prize pools of $70.3 milion.

Commenting on the results, Jim Ryan, PartyGaming Chief Executive Officer, said:

"We are pleased to announce another strong set of results with Clean EBITDA from Continuing operations up 29 percent to $144.2 million. Our business model is both flexible and robust with a capacity to generate strong cashflow. Our brands and market position are strong and we have a healthy balance sheet with which to execute our business strategy. I believe that we are in an excellent position, not just to withstand the macroeconomic challenges that may lie ahead, but also to execute our strategy, create value for all of our stakeholders and achieve our long-term objective of becoming the world’s most valuable online gaming company.”

Regarding current trading he added:

“In the 5 weeks ended 4 February 2009, average gross daily revenue was $1,442,900. In poker, new player sign-ups increased to an average of 1,494 per day, and there were on average 51,000 active players per day generating average gross daily poker revenue of $756,700. In casino, gross revenue was $597,200 per day. In sports betting gross win per day was $75,700 and in bingo, average gross daily revenue was $13,200.

In the four weeks ended 4 March 2009, average gross daily revenue was $1,536,200. In poker, new player sign-ups averaged 1,550 per day and there were on average 51,100 active players per day, generating average gross daily revenue of $738,500. In casino, average gross daily revenue was $662,500; in sports betting, average gross win per day was $123,000; while in bingo it was $12,200.

“The Group has continued to make good progress in the first few weeks of 2009 despite the pressures of a highly competitive market and substantial year-on-year currency movements.”
