Return to pre-crisis income level at constant scope
3rd quarter turnover: solid momentum at constant scope (+12.7% vs Q3 2021)

Paris, 13th September 2022, 06:00 p.m. – Groupe Partouche, a European leader in gaming, publishes today its consolidated turnover for the 3rd quarter 2022 (May – July 2022).

Solid business activity at constant scope, during the 3rd quarter

The 3rd quarter of the current financial year (May to July 2022) marks the return to normal operations: all the Group’s casinos are now open and all health constraints have been lifted. For the record, during the 3rd quarter of the previous financial year, activity was still largely impacted in all geographies (reception gauges, curfew then health pass in France, closure in Belgium until 9th June, etc.) with the exception of Switzerland.

At the same time, turnover for the 3rd quarter 2022 is impacted by significant scope effects representing – € 28.1 M in aggregate GGR compared to Q3 2021 (and – € 14.2 M versus 2019). They concern:

  • the sale of the stake held in the Crans-Montana casino on 31st January 2022 (GGR of € 2.2 M in the 3rd quarter 2021 and € 3.0 M in the 3rd quarter 2019);
  • the cessation of the operation of online games and bets in Belgium and of the management of the Ostend casino since 29th July 2021 (GGR of € 26.1 M in the 3rd quarter 2021 and € 11.2 M in 3rd quarter 2019);
  • the entry into the Group of the casino of Middelkerke (Belgium) from 1st July 2022, with an opening on 8th July 2022 after some works (GGR of € 0.2 M in the 3rd quarter 2022).

Despite these scope effects, Gross Gaming Revenue (GGR) increases by +10.8% to € 167.9 M in the 3rd quarter, compared to € 151.5 M a year earlier. At constant scope, it increases by +36.1% compared to the 3rd quarter 2021 to € 167.6 M and by +11.9% compared to the 3rd quarter 2019.

In France, GGR amounts to € 152.9 M, up +36.2% compared to N-1, with slot machines and traditional games growing by +29.8% and +67.3% respectively. The GGR of electronic games follows the same trend at +36.1%.
Abroad, on a like-for-like basis, GGR rebounds by +35.2% compared to N-1, driven by the ramping up of Swiss online games, whose GGR came to € 2.9 M compared to € 1.6 M € in the 3rd quarter 2021.

After levies with a very strong increase of +75.3% compared to the 3rd quarter 2021 mainly due to the progressive scale in France (where the lower tax brackets applied), the Net Gaming Revenue (NGR) is down at € 75.0 M (-23.8%).

Turnover excluding games totals € 26.9 M over the period, compared to € 16.3 M for the previous year, up by +64.7%.

Globally, 3rd quarter turnover stands at € 100.9 M (-11.6% compared to 2021 and -3.8% compared to 2019). At constant scope, it increases by + 12.7 % versus 2021 and by +9.3% versus 2019.

Return to 2019 level of activity over 9 months at constant scope and dynamic activity

At the end of July, aggregate income of the 9-month totals € 288.1 M (+78.6% compared to 2021), with Net Gaming Revenue at € 228.4 M (+60.0%). Overall, at a constant scope, aggregate revenue for the first 9 months of 2022 financial year returns to its pre-Covid 2019 level (-0.4%). The Group’s activity continues to develop in a dynamic climate since the end of the constraints linked to the vaccination pass.

4th quarter 2022 turnover: Tuesday 13th December 2022, after stock market closure

Income for fiscal year at 31st October 2022: Tuesday 24th April 2023, after stock market closure

The «Gross Gaming Revenue» after deduction of the levies, becomes the “Net Gaming Revenue “, a component of the turnover.

CRIPPLE CREEK, Colo., Sept. 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Full House Resorts (Nasdaq: FLL) will celebrate the “topping off” of its Chamonix Casino Hotel project on September 21, 2022, in Cripple Creek, Colorado. This long-standing tradition will commemorate the placement of a construction beam at the highest point of the construction project. The construction team and local dignitaries will then enjoy a luncheon at the property, inaugurating the still-being-constructed ballroom of the new casino hotel.

Chamonix will bring a new level of elegance and comfort to Cripple Creek upon its opening in mid-2023. Adjoining and connected to the Company’s existing Bronco Billy’s Casino, Chamonix will include a spacious and exciting new casino; approximately 300 luxury guest rooms and suites, including some of the most lavish high-roller suites in Colorado; a guest-friendly parking garage; convenient new surface parking lots; extensive high-end meeting and entertainment space; an outdoor, rooftop, heated swimming pool overlooking Bennett Avenue; a full-service spa and beauty salon; and a fine-dining restaurant designed to offer one of Colorado’s finest culinary experiences.

Following the launch of its small business strategy, Elys has already placed its sportsbook solution at the Grand Central Restaurant and Sportsbook and expects to receive regulatory approval to open its second sportsbook operation at the Cloakroom Gentlemen’s Club under the Cloakbook brand situated at 476 K St NW, in Washington, DC.  In April 2022, the Company also announced its CBEJV with AllBets Inc., and in June 2022, the Company announced its fourth planned sportsbook location at the Entitlement Restaurant and Lounge in Washington, DC, both of which are pending approval by the DSLBD.

“While this approval is the first in a two-step process to obtain the license required to operate our sportsbook solution at the Ozio Lounge, we believe the increasing pace of approvals demonstrates our U.S. expansion momentum, as well our ability to operate sportsbooks as an ancillary product for restaurants, bars and other small business establishments in a fully compliant manner,” commented Michele Ciavarella, Elys Executive Chairman.  “We are excited to partner with District Hospitality and believe the launch of our sportsbook solution will help further establish the Ozio Lounge as a premier destination for both local guests and tourists alike.  We also appreciate the support of the DSLBD, which illustrates their commitment to helping both small businesses and the local DC economy. Our sportsbook solution is not only garnering attention within DC, but we believe that interest is growing rapidly in this sector across the nation. We look forward to announcing additional retail locations in the near future, and to replicating this success in additional markets, including our recently announced expansion into the state of Ohio.”

The Ozio Lounge is situated in the prestigious Dupont Circle area of Washington, DC, and is a chic lounge bar featuring table and cigar service and a full-service Mediterranean/American fusion dining experience. The location is heralded as one of Washington’s premiere lounges easily accessible from all areas of DC, Maryland and Virginia.
