Investment in technology platform paying off

Online gambling marketing company XLMedia, which operates websites driving players to online casino operators, delivered robust interim results for the first half of 2016, attributing its success to investment in technology.
Financial highlights for the period ending June 30, 2016 include:
* Revenue increase of 39 percent to $51.2 million (H1/2015: $36.8 million) delivering another period of record revenues;
* Gross profit increased 47 percent to $27.0 million (H1/2015: $18.4 million);
* Adjusted EBITDA increased 37 percent to $17.7 million (H1/2015: $12.9 million);
* Profit before tax was up 20 percent to $15.8 million (H1/2015: $13.2 million);
* Interim dividend of $7.5 million or 3.8205 cent per share, an increase of 47 percent (H1/2016: 2.595 cent per share); and
* Strong balance sheet with $42.9 million cash and short term investments.
The company has established a US subsidiary, enabling it to further develop relationships with US clients. The focus of this new subsidiary will be to rapidly increase our business in mobile apps and additional non-gambling verticals, XLMedia said.
"During the first six months of the year we continued to develop the business and invest in our technology platform and mobile capabilities, which further underpin our key revenue and profit drivers," commented Ory Weihs, chief executive officer of XLMedia

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
