    Current trading

    Revenues for January and February 2011 are up 29% on the corresponding period in 2010 with strong active player levels and improved player yields. The Board continues to be watchful of the general economic environment but looks forward to a successful and exciting year for 32Red Plc.

    Commenting on the results Ed Ware, Chief Executive Officer, said:

    “The excellent performance in 2010 is particularly pleasing in times of continued economic uncertainty in our primary market, the UK. The recruitment of good numbers of new players and our improved customer retention are tribute to the strength of the 32Red brand and to the continued excellent levels of service and entertainment provided to our players.

    The 32Red brand has been further strengthened by our victory in the High Court in our trade mark dispute with William Hill. The Judgment which was handed down in January firmly establishes our Intellectual Property Rights and should deter other operators from infringing our trade marks. As highlighted by the judge, we have an excellent reputation as an online casino operator and a strong brand - these are extremely valuable assets in any marketplace.

    We will continue to focus the 32Red brand in the UK and maintain a close watching brief on regulatory developments in Europe and the Rest of the World.’’

    The Audit Committee has determined that, due to dispute with William Hill, it is in the interests of audit quality that the current audit partner should continue in his role for a further year beyond his fifth year of involvement. The Audit Committee is satisfied that by the application of safeguards, the extension does not undermine the objectivity and independence of the auditor.

    Grant Thornton UK LLP has agreed to this extension, as permitted by the Ethical Standards.

    Just wanted to add that the attached pdf goes into way more detail. It makes for an interesting read - especially the latest on the WH litigation.

    EBITDA +90% is...well, maybe no players cashed out last year or they might have outsourched the CS :p

    But seriously, it would be interesting if the rep would give an financial explanation for PBT / EBITDA
