There are currently 586,553,019 shares in issue and the average daily traded volume is 1,159,078 shares. The market capitalisation of Entain Plc is £7,836,348,333.84.
66fingers: Debt crept up last year, owing largely to the group's acquisitions in Portugal and the Baltics. The group's already been active this year, most notably the BetCity acquisition. At last check, net debt was 2.4 times cash profit, but we'd expect that to move higher given recent acquisitions. It's not uncomfortably high, especially when you consider the c.£500m in cash on the books and free cash flow expected around £445m this year, but worth keeping an eye on. Greater scale should help drive improved efficiency and while regulatory scrutiny remains high, Entain's geographically diverse footprint (over 50% of revenues are generated outside the UK at last count) helps mitigate the risk to some extent. The group's also taken steps to boost its ESG credentials, with increased focus on responsible gambling, and a shift to regulated markets that provide a greater degree of regulatory certainty. The underlying business looks to be progressing well, with the group finding a good balance between building out its online presence and offering an in-store option. The BetMGM project offers a real growth driver for the future if execution remains on point. But with a price/earnings ratio some way ahead of the long-term average, there could be volatility in the event of any missteps. Entain key facts Forward price/earnings ratio: 15.2 Ten year average price/earnings ratio: 12.5 Prospective dividend yield (next 12 months): 2.0% All ratios are sourced from Refinitiv. Please remember yields are variable and not a reliable indicator of future income. Keep in mind key figures shouldn't be looked at on their own - it's important to understand the big picture. REGISTER FOR UPDATES ON ENTAIN Trading Statement (all figures at constant currency, 7 April 2022) Entain reported a 34% increase in first quarter Group Net Gaming Revenue (NGR), ignoring the effect of currency fluctuations. The return of customers to stores helped Retail return to within 5-10% of pre-covid levels. That helped offset a drop in Online NGR, as the division lapped exceptional demand the previous year. BetMGM, the joint venture in the US, is now live in 23 markets and remains on track to deliver positive cash profits (EBITDA) in 2023. CEO, Jette Nygaard-Andersen, said: ''Given the strength and continuing momentum of our underlying business, coupled with our proven ability to grow both organically and through M&A, we remain confident in our financial performance for FY22 and beyond.''
66fingers: Entain has announced the acquisition of BetCity, one of the Netherlands' leading online sports and gaming operators. The deal's expected to cost €300m in cash at completion, plus up to €550m in further performance-related payments. The deal's expected to complete in the second half of 2022 and should deliver around €28m in cost savings by the end of 2026. Entain's expecting to fund the deal using cash on hand, plus some of its available credit. Entain CEO, Jette Nygaard-Andersen, said: "This acquisition will provide customers with an even better experience as we combine BetCity's local expertise and brand alongside Entain's market leading, customer focused platform. This transaction further underpins our growth strategy of operating in attractive regulated markets." The shares were broadly flat following the announcement. VIEW THE LATEST ENTAIN SHARE PRICE AND HOW TO DEAL Our view The BetCity acquisition is another step in Entain's growth strategy, pushing into new regulated markets through a mix of organic and, as in this case, M&A led expansion. The underlying business is enjoying the benefits as people return to in-person gambling. Retail revenue is approaching pre-pandemic levels. As a result, online gaming has come under some pressure - but that was largely expected. The huge boost to online gaming last year as shops were closed was always going to lead to some tough comparisons. Importantly, some of the increased demand looks to be sticky. When you look over a longer period, gaming revenue has grown significantly in the last couple of years. This is particularly good news, because margins for the online business are a lot better than retail. It costs less to run a website than a shop. A major shift back to bricks-and-mortar could see overall margins come under pressure, so it'll be key the group continues to attract and keep customers with its online brands. BetMGM, Entain's joint venture with US-based MGM, has been a shining light for the group that's expected to start turning a profit in 2023. Entain estimates the North American sports-betting and iGaming market will be worth approximately $32 bn over the long term. Continued market share gains and the steady increase in the number of states in which the company operates suggest BetMGM could be in-line for a sizeable chunk of that money
hmonk: Bright lights, big city: Having exited the Netherlands when the market regulated last October, Entain has bought its way back in via a €300m cash upfront deal with a two-year earnout that could take the buyout price up to €550m. The deal will be paid from Entain’s existing cash and bank facilities and will complete in H2. Data from the Dutch gambling authority suggests BetCity achieved 20% market share in Q421. Analysts at Regulus estimate this was worth ~€30m in Q1. “This is remarkable from a standing start,” they added. Got to earn it: Up to €50m of the earnout is deliverable on completion of a successful transition to the Entain platform. Note: BetCity currently operates on the Kambi platform. The wait goes on: Entain said BetCity would be complementary to its Bwin and Party brands which are both yet to receive licenses from the Dutch authorities. Entain said the licenses would now be in the “latter part” of 2023 as the KSA has recently requested additional documentation. Dutch bun fight: A question for Entain/Big City is how much of that 20% it will hold on to now that Kindred’s Unibet has recently relaunched having been granted a license on June 7. Fellow market absentee Betsson is also awaiting news on its license application. Quick buck: Noting BetCity has only been in existence since October, Regulus said the sale was “one of the most rapid returns on effort seen in the sector” and demonstrates the disruption caused by the October grey market shutdown. Holding on “The extent to which BetCity can hang on to its market size and share as the Netherlands market evolves remains to be seen, with a platform migration adding risk.”

pura vida: @tobyjo That is crazy, i would understand before but now entain's share price has been battered, the markets in general are negative but going further short seems crazy. When are the Dutch due to give the licenses back? When will the uk review be out? In my opinion both of those elements have dragged the price down enormously Entain is profitable and generate a lot of free cash flow. They are also a sin stock with quite a bit of inelastic demand. They had very tough comparables so growth slowed (even went slightly negative) but the trend is up up and away with their acquisitions But obviously everything depends on the timeline, i'm a long term investor (years) and obviously i hate taking short term hits... (just posting here cos i'm a bit bored for the moment) But i prefer keeping entain than complaining or selling now. Where else would you place your money? Cash in a bank guaranteed to loose out to inflation? Bonds which are virtually inflated by central banks? Investment funds where you are paying stupid fees? Property yes but only if you can afford without a huge morgage and associated fees
pura vida: @twh i mean no disrepect as you provide some really good insight and a lot of valued posts But why ask for a dividend when they are a growth company and have a better roi than paying a dividend (shareholders aren't really rewarded by dividends after greedy governments take their share) As for share buybacks, isn't it better they buy companies CASH and get a good roi (entain have a proven history of this). Entain have no need for buybacks for the moment as they invest their free cash flow in acquisitions rather than issuing shares (like dkng or printing cash like governments) The whole market is going down, I personally don't blame entain management and think they are going the right direction. I could be completely wrong (all my ex's would agree with that) but i don't agree with asking management to do the impossible in a down market. When things get better i think entain will vastly outperform... Just my 2 cents
srpactive: Ent share price is like a sun dial, you do not need to have a watch to know when the US opens, just look for when the ent share price dives and there you have 2.30pm.
bartyb: Analysts have responded well to Entain PLC (LSE:ENT)’s latest results, as the group continued its expansion and maintained earnings growth. Underlying earnings (EBITDA) for the gambling, gaming and entertainment group grew 5% on 2020, as visits to its stores hit 90% of pre-pandemic levels. Underlying operating profits for the company fell 9% as the group invested heavily in its burgeoning US arm BetMGM, where revenues increased nearly five-fold as US gambling laws were liberalised. Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS) released a statement it described as “confident with an unchanged outlook”, maintaining a 2,530p price target, which it said would come as some relief given a broadly bearish UK market. “We expect the shares to moderately outperform today on the back of a reassuring and surprise-free update, and expect no changes to consensus forecasts.” Investec maintained a 2,400p price target on the back of the results, saying Entain remained “the best investment choice in the gambling space.” Entain upgraded its revenue target for BetMGM from US$1bn to US$1.3bn, expecting positive EBITDA for the company in 2023. UK gambling companies are in an expansion-driven transitionary period as US regulations relax and the UK market proves more challenging than previously, particularly in the face of an upcoming White Paper on the country's gambling laws. Flutter shares fell this week as the group grappled with flat UK revenues and accusations of “virtue signalling” by an analyst, despite strong growth in its flagship US subsidiary FanDuel. Entain’s minimal exposure to Russian and Ukrainian markets gave analysts further cause for optimism when compared with Flutter’s £41mln Russian market. Shares in Entain were up 2.88% to 1,605p as of 11:36 GMT this morning.
srpactive: What is 30% on the current share price? So the non dividend and pumping money into the US sends the target from 2600p to 2000p. Good call one here, lol. They are ruled by the yanks, was told that twenty years ago by high up manager. dyor
