In line with our earlier announcements, Q4 2022 turned out to be record-breaking. The calendar of sports events and the World Championships held in Qatar contributed to high customer activity. Our offer attracted as many as two hundred thousand new players in the last three months of the year. During the World Cup alone, we had nearly half a million active customers – says Mateusz Juroszek, President of the Management Board of STS Holding.

In 2023, the Group is planning a number of activities aimed at increasing the profitability of its operations. To this end, the company is reorganising its operations, focusing on Poland and phasing out its activities under licenses in the UK and Estonia. The operating results achieved by STS S.A. in 2022 indicate the extremely high attractiveness of the Polish market. The company intends to concentrate its activities in order to be able to use the development potential in the country.

Operating data for last year clearly show that the domestic market is in a growth phase, despite the extremely difficult macroeconomic environment – the war in Ukraine, high inflation and economic stagnation. Therefore, we intend to use this potential as fully as possible and continue to strengthen our leading position in the country. For this purpose, since the beginning of this year, we have been focusing our activity exclusively on Poland. Our goal for the difficult year 2023 is greater efficiency of operations and a number of implemented savings. The new agreement with Polish Football Association, focus on the Polish market and a number of synergies resulting from changes in the structure of the Group will positively affect our profitability and facilitate further EBITDA growth – adds Mateusz Juroszek.
