Kambi Group plc: Statement on today’s news re. DraftKings
Kambi Group plc partner DraftKings has today announced plans to enter into a business combination agreement with SBTech.
Kristian Nylén, Kambi Chief Executive Officer, comments: “Kambi has today been made aware of DraftKings’ proposed deal. It is of course not up to me to comment on the strategic choices of DraftKings, but in this context I would like to emphasise that Kambi has successfully built a strong position in the US and our partner network consists of high-quality, visionary operators, both in the US and across the world. Furthermore, we believe the combination of a competitor and a high-profile operator has the potential to strengthen the appeal of Kambi in future sales processes.
“Kambi recently signed a renewed deal with DraftKings and, as per that agreement, we will continue to provide the same high levels of product and service that enabled DraftKings to become a leading player across multiple US states. No notice of termination has been given; should that type of information be given, we will inform the market,” says Nylén.
