Only about 3 months after the start of the MECN gambling investment database, about 50 financial investors and companies active in the gambling industry have registered in the database. Thus, it is time to present the first entries of the database.
The gambling and gaming industry offers a wealth of investment opportunities, and more and more financial investors are increasingly eager to find attractive investment targets. But there is not much information available about investment opportunities in the gambling industry; therefore, this report and the investment database are intended as intermediaries between investors and the gambling industry.
The report features investors and investment targets that are currently registered in the MECN investment database. All companies presented are either financial investors looking for attractive investment targets in the gambling industry or gambling companies seeking funding.
And so far the reaction has been very positive. As Martin Oelbermann, director of MECN, states, “We were thrilled by the number of investors wanting to fund gambling companies and even more impressed by the variety of gambling companies registered.”
In summary, the following basic conclusions can be drawn regarding investors (13 entries) and companies (37 entries) registered:
– The investors are mainly corporate investors, private equity companies, and private investors.
– Top investment preferences of the registered investors are companies in the gambling technology and online gambling sector. But the report also includes investors looking for investment in all land-based sectors.
– The investors represented offer a wide variety of potential investment volumes. Investments start from below USD 2 million and can range up to an investment of over USD 100 million.
– Of the companies registered, about 50% are in the online gambling business; the second largest group are technology/service providers, and land-based casinos are the third largest group. But other sectors, such as land-based lotteries and betting companies are also represented.
– Most Togel Singapore companies are looking for funding for the early and the expansion phases and ask for a funding volume of USD 1 to 10 million.
In addition, the report includes a comprehensive list of private equity companies active in the gambling/gaming industry, selected investment opportunities in publicly traded companies, and a description of upcoming IPOs in the industry.
The report can be obtained at http://www.investments.mecn.net. MECN will continue updating the database and invites interested investors and companies to register (free of charge) under the same website.
