GAN Limited, a UK-based provider of internet gambling software, raised the proposed deal size for its upcoming IPO on Friday.
The London, United Kingdom-based company now plans to raise $48 million by offering 6.4 million shares at a price range of $6.50 to $8.50. The company had previously filed to offer 4.1 million shares at the same range. At the midpoint, GAN Limited will raise 57% more in proceeds than previously anticipated to command a fully diluted market value of $224 million. The company is currently listed on London’s AIM under the symbol GAN. Adjusting for a four-for-one share exchange prior to the closing of its US IPO, GAN’s as-converted last close was $12.12, above the proposed midpoint.
Formerly GameAccount Network, GAN provides enterprise SaaS solutions for online casino gaming and sports betting applications, namely its GameSTACK internet gaming platform. Its software is used in the UK (15% of 2019 revenue), Italy (15%), and the US (70%), where it is focusing its efforts. As of December 31, 2019, the company’s customers operated 53 (101 including recent customer acquisitions) retail casino properties, racetracks, and online sportsbooks, and its largest customers include fantasy sports provider FanDuel (46% of 2019 revenue) and Winstar Casino (20%).
