Better Collective establishes leading position in German speaking markets with acquisition of Bola Webinformation GmbH (wettbasis.com)

Monday 2nd July, 2018 – Better Collective has completed the acquisition of all shares in Austrian based Bola Webinformation GmbH, including its flagship product Wettbasis.com.

On a proforma basis, the company’s annual revenue in 2017 was approximately 9million EUR and EBITA was approximately 6.5million EUR. The purchase price has been agreed at 36.3million EUR to be paid in cash.

Better Collective, the world’s leading developer of digital platforms for bookmaker information, iGaming communities, and betting tips, has today acquired Bola Webinformation GmbH. This eleventh acquisition is so far the largest acquisition for Better Collective.

Better Collective becomes the leading sports betting affiliate in German speaking markets

Bola Webinformation GmbH, founded in 2008, owns strong brands focused on sports betting, including the flagship product Wettbasis.com, which is the leading affiliate website in the German sports betting market.

On a proforma basis, and after adjustment for certain non-core assets of the business that were divested before completion, the company generated revenues of approximately EUR 9 million and EUR 6.5 million in operating earnings (EBITA) in 2017.

Last year, Better Collective acquired Sportfreunde GmbH, including websites sportwettentest.net and wettfreunde.net, both large sports betting affiliate websites also targeting the German speaking markets. When combined with the portfolio from Bola Webinformation GmbH and Better Collective’s other websites (including bettingexpert.com), Better Collective is now positioned as the market leader in the German speaking markets.

With the recent establishment of a new office in the center of Vienna to house Better Collective’s employees in Austria, the team from Bola Webinformation GbmH will join the existing “Better Collective Vienna” team in these new facilities. A close collaboration with Better Collective’s headquarter in Copenhagen will be established to ensure that synergies are realised successfully and quickly.

The purchase price has been agreed to 36.3 million EUR whereof 30.8 million has been paid in cash upon closing and the remaining part will be paid in cash after 12 months.

Jesper Søgaard, CEO of Better Collective, said:We are truly excited about having reached an agreement with Bola Webinformation GbmH. This is the largest acquisition we have completed, and it is a great first step after our IPO earlier in June, where we raised funds to continue our acquisition strategy. With the acquisition of Bola, we are very pleased that we now take the position as the leading sports betting affiliate in the German speaking markets, a market where we see high growth potential.

Florian Körner, Founder of Bola Webinformation, added: “Speaking on behalf of the founders of Bola Webinformation GmbH, we are very excited that we have been able to conclude the sale of our company to Better Collective, a company we have known well for a long time. We are very proud of the company we have built over the years, and we are happy to see our employees and our products continue in a well-managed company where values and quality are priorities.

Safaribet Kenya Launches Affiliate Programme with Income Access

 

Programme for East African online sportsbook with pioneering group-betting product to be powered by Income Access affiliate platform

 

Safaribet Kenya, a Nairobi-based online sportsbook focusing on the Kenyan market, has launched a new affiliate programme in partnership with Income Access, Paysafe Group’s marketing technology and services provider. Safaribet Kenya, which features an innovative group-betting product, will use Income Access’ affiliate software to optimise programme performance and growth.

Founded in 2016, Safaribet Kenya offers pre-match and live betting on over 3,000 sports markets, including soccer, Formula 1, basketball, American football, baseball, cricket and handball. The brand’s unique group-betting functionality allows customers to wager on events with up to 10 others.

Safaribet Kenya’s launch of a new affiliate programme on the Income Access platform, which has won eGR North America’s ‘Acquisition and Retention Partner of the Year’ award for the last four years straight, will serve to raise brand awareness and customer acquisition. The platform’s Ad Serving tool will allow the operator to target players in geographically diverse and multilingual Kenya down to a town or city level and according to language, among other criteria.

Affiliates promoting the new Safaribet Kenya affiliate programme, which offers a revenue share commission structure, will benefit from the brand’s diverse player promotions. In addition to group-betting, these include weekly jackpots and accumulator bonuses, among other offers.

Safaribet Kenya will add fantasy sports and Keno games to its offering later in Q4 2018, providing affiliates with another compelling reason to promote a diversifying brand.

Imran A. Premji, founder and CEO of Safaribet Kenya, said: “Income Access offers the most sophisticated and robust affiliate platform for sports betting operators. Supported by the company’s software, our new affiliate programme allows gaming affiliates to grow with the Safaribet Kenya brand, as we expand our offering this year and into 2019.”

Tara Wilson, General Manager at Income Access, Paysafe Group, said: “The regulated African sports-betting market, which continues to grow strongly, is an important business focus for our products and services. We’re excited to partner with one of Kenya’s leading operators to support the growth of its brand through the affiliate channel.”

Income Access to Host EGR Global Webinar on US Affiliate Market

 

Income Access marketing director to chair 15th Nov. online panel discussion on the US gaming and lottery affiliate markets

 

Income Access, Paysafe Group’s marketing technology and services provider, has partnered with EGR Global, a leading B2B publisher for the online gambling industry, to host a webinar panel discussion on the US gaming and lottery affiliate space on Thursday 15th November from 8:00 a.m. PDT/11:00 a.m. EDT/4:00 p.m. GMT. Moderated by Income Access Marketing Director Erica Anderson, the webinar will feature experienced gaming and lottery affiliates as well as operators and service providers.

Titled ‘The Expanding Frontier: Affiliate Marketing & the Evolution of the American iGaming and iLottery Space’, the free one-hour webinar will include the following affiliate panellists: Adam Small, CEO of USBets; Becky Kingman-Gros, COO at Casino Connection Intl.; Chris Capra, former Vice President of Online & Internet Marketing at Tropicana Entertainment (Tropicana Atlantic City Online); Merv Huber-Calvo, Director of Growth Marketing at Scientific Games, which powers Pennsylvania Lottery’s iLottery; and Michael Daly, General Manager U.S. at Catena Media.

In addition to moderating the panel, Anderson will also share Income Access’ experience in the US affiliate market. The company’s platform powers multiple New Jersey iGaming brands’ affiliate programmes and its affiliate team has managed Caesars Interactive’s New Jersey and Nevada-facing channel since 2015. In addition, the team has managed Michigan Lottery and Pennsylvania Lottery’s Income Access-powered affiliate programmes since their respective launches this year.

Income Access is also part of Paysafe Group, which has been providing payment services tailored for sports betting globally for decades and has experience processing payments for regulated online gaming in North America. The company offers credit card and ACH payment processing capabilities, online cash solutions, and digital wallet products, such as its proprietary wallets Skrill and NETELLER, for the iGaming market.

The webinar will explore affiliate marketing’s role in growing the New Jersey and Nevada iGaming markets from their 2013 launches, focusing on both the challenges and the progress to date. Following the repeal of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA)’s federal ban on single-event sports-betting and ahead of the launch of Pennsylvania’s iGaming market, the panellists will also discuss how the gaming affiliate space could evolve going forward.

In addition, the webinar will analyse the emerging state iLottery affiliate space. With states like New Hampshire recently launching online lotteries, the panel will also assess the outlook for the affiliate channel.

Following a 45-minute panel discussion, there will be a 15-minute Q&A period.

Tara Wilson, General Manager at Income Access, said: “With the repeal of PASPA and state lotteries now leveraging affiliate marketing, 2018 has been a landmark year for the US gaming and lottery industries. We look forward to contributing to a far-ranging and insightful debate on the next phase of the affiliate channel’s American evolution.”
