Super Group shares ride high after 19% Q2 revenue growth
The increase was driven by growth in markets across Africa, the Middle East and Europe, partially offset by declines in North American revenue.
Still, North America remained the company’s largest region by revenue generated, as it brought in €137.1m, albeit down 3.5% year-on-year.
North America was the only geographical region where the Spin brand outperformed Betway, generating 72.6% and 27.4% of revenue, respectively.
Africa and the Middle East was the next best-performing geographical region, generating €110.3m in revenue during the quarter, up 73.5% year-on-year.
Across the region, the Betway brand accounted for 99.7% of revenue with Spin generating just 0.3%.
In the Asia-Pacific region, revenue was down 10.7% to €69.1m, with a brand split of around 60/40 in favour of Betway.
Europe generated impressive growth of 87.2%, as revenue from the region totalled €57.1m. Around two-thirds of that revenue came from the Betway brand.
Across both brands globally, the number of monthly active customers increased by 40% year-on-year to 3.7 million, Super Group said.
