SoftGamings is headed to Monte Carlo, home to the iconic Formula 1 Grand Prix and SPORTEL, a marquee event that brings together the worlds of sports, TV and sports betting.
SoftGamings is en route to mark its first participation at SPORTEL, Monaco’s flagship sporting event that’s been gathering sports and TV stars for over 30 years. It’s a perfect opportunity for SoftGamings to display its sports betting and other iGaming solutions from its remarkable portfolio.
SPORTEL was founded in 1990 under the patronage of Prince Rainier III and the Presidency of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco, prompted by journalist Georges Bertellotti. His idea of gathering eminent sports personalities, TV personalities, and media moguls has cemented Monaco’s position as a haven for sports.
SPORTEL, which is taking place at The Grimaldi Forum in Monaco, brings together the entire sports industry, of which sports betting has become indispensable.
SoftGamings is keen on exhibiting its white label, turnkey, and self-service sports betting solutions powered by leading software providers, such as BetRadar, BetConstruct, SBTech and Digitain. All guests and visitors will be welcomed by SoftGamings’ experts at stand A06, ready to discuss potential solutions and improvements designed to meet the increasing demands of the developing market.
Anna Lalina, Director of Partnerships at SoftGamings, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be participating at SPORTEL, the home of one of the sports industry’s biggest events and gatherings. SPORTEL gives us a perfect opportunity to showcase our product lineup with a special focus on sports betting solutions. We look forward to welcoming all interested parties at our stand A06 and discussing potential partnerships and cooperation. Feel free to reach out to us beforehand and schedule a private consultation and meeting.”
Kindred Group Announces North America Exit and Actions to Accelerate Profitable Growth
As part of its strategic review, Kindred Group will exit the North American market with the expectations to have fully exited operations in the market by the end of Q2 2024, subject to the regulatory process. The Group also announced decisive actions to drive growth on core markets and dedicated cost reduction initiatives, which includes a reduction of over 300 employees and consultants during 2024. In total, these initiatives are expected to result in annualized gross cost savings of approximately GBP 40 million.
Kindred Group announced an interim update on the strategic review initiated by the Board of Directors on 26 April 2023. As part of the strategic review, Kindred will immediately start an exit process from the North American market with the expectations to have fully exited operations by the end of Q2 2024, subject to the regulatory process. The re-allocation of financial and tech resources towards existing core markets will improve ability to capitalize on core market potential and gain market share.
The re-allocation of financial and tech resources enables Kindred to initiate growth initiatives across its core market footprint. These initiatives include, but are not limited to;
- Additional brand extensions of hyper local casino brands in selected markets
- Re-allocation of marketing investments and tech resources to selected markets and strategic projects with convincing growth opportunities
- Continued product differentiation through exclusive content.
Additionally, Kindred introduces further cost reduction initiatives. In addition to non-headcount opex savings, Kindred has also addressed its organizational structure with the intent to achieve a leaner and more efficient organization focused on selective growth initiatives. This will include a reduction of over 300 employees (including employees in North America) and consultants during 2024. The cost reduction initiatives are expected to result in annualized gross cost savings (opex and capex) of approximately GBP 40 million.
“The cost reduction actions announced today are both necessary and decisive. While it is never a desire to inform valued colleagues of redundancies, this puts us in a stronger position to secure long-term growth for Kindred across our locally regulated core markets. We can now focus our resources and tech capacity towards strategic initiatives and selected markets where we see clear potential to grow our market share,” Nils Andén, Interim CEO of Kindred Group, said.
