Super Group Reports Financial Results for Fourth Quarter 2023 and Full Year 2023

  • Record revenue of €1.4 billion for the full year exceeded guidance; includes highest ever total revenue for a fourth quarter of €359.9 million.
  • Profit before tax for the year of €16.8 million and loss before tax of €44.9 million for the fourth quarter. These results were affected by certain non-cash charges of €64.6 million and €42.1 million respectively arising from changes in fair value of option liability and an impairment of goodwill.
  • Operational EBITDA ex-US of €254.7 million for the year exceeded guidance and €54.0 million for the fourth quarter.
  • Unrestricted cash was €241.9 million as at December 31, 2023.

Super Group (SGHC) Limited (NYSE: SGHC) (“SGHC” or “Super Group”), the parent company of Betway, a leading online sports betting and gaming business, and Spin, the multi-brand online casino, today announced fourth quarter 2023 and full year 2023 unaudited consolidated financial results.

Neal Menashe, Chief Executive Officer of Super Group, commented: “We have made tremendous strides in 2023 and are delighted to have achieved an all-time revenue record of €1.4 billion, enabling us to comfortably surpass our guidance for the year. Q4 2023 was particularly strong. Despite the challenging start, we set record breaking totals for revenue, customer numbers and deposits cementing our position as a growing, cash generative and geographically diverse online sports betting and iGaming operator. iGaming continues to be the largest part of our business, allowing us to manage moments of volatility in the sportsbook to deliver record-breaking results. We are confident that we will achieve the double-digit top-line growth that we are projecting for 2024."

Alinda van Wyk, Chief Financial Officer of Super Group, stated: “For the fourth quarter, we delivered ex-US Revenue of €352 million and ex-US Operational EBITDA of €54 million, which resulted in our December margin hitting 24%, the strongest ever. To have surpassed our guidance, in the face of multiple headwinds, is indicative of our laser focus on realizing cost efficiencies and investing in growth where we can see a clear return. In the US, the operational EBITDA loss was less than expected for the year and we are actively evaluating all of our options."

Quarterly Financial Highlights (Unaudited)

  • Revenue increased by 9% to €359.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2023 from €329.1 million in 2022. Revenue increase using constant currency was 15% to €378.4 million.
  • Loss before tax for the fourth quarter of 2023 was €44.9 million compared to profit before tax of €21.1 million in 2022. The loss for the fourth quarter of 2023 is mainly affected by non-cash charges of €35.9 million relating to the impairment of the DGC cash generating unit as well as €6.1 million (2022: €15.1 million) relating to an increase in the fair value of a liability for a call option granted to a third-party to purchase the B2B division of Digital Gaming Corporation Limited ('DGC'), which Super Group acquired in January 2023.
  • Operational EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was €36.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2023 compared to €42.3 million in 2022. The measure for the fourth quarter of 2023 comprised of a profit of €54.0 million ex-US and a loss of €17.8 million in the US.

Full Year Financial Highlights (Unaudited)

  • Revenue increased by 11% to €1.4 billion for 2023 from €1.3 billion in 2022. Revenue increase using constant currency was 19% to €1.5 billion.
  • Profit before tax was €16.8 million for 2023 compared to €216.5 million in 2022. The profit for 2023 is mainly affected by non-cash charges of €28.6 million relating to an increase in the fair value of a liability for a call option granted to a third-party to purchase the B2B division of DGC, which Super Group acquired in January 2023. Additionally included is a non-cash charge of €35.9 million relating to the impairment of the DGC cash generating unit. In 2022, profit included non-cash gains of €246.8 million relating to the fair value of warrant and earnout liabilities and related foreign exchange movements, partially offset by share listing expense €126.3 million, and adjusted RSU expense of €25.4 million.
  • Operational EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was €197.3 million for 2023 compared to €208.5 million in 2022. The measure for 2023 comprised of a profit of €254.7 million ex-US and a loss of €57.4 million in the US.

  • Unrestricted cash was €241.9 million as of December 31, 2023 compared to €254.8 million at the end of 2022. The decrease in cash is predominantly related to the acquisition of DGC and related technology strategies.

Preliminary Financial Results

The financial results included in this press release are preliminary, have not been audited and are subject to change upon completion of the audit of Super Group’s financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2023. As a result, these preliminary results may be different from the actual results that will be reflected in Super Group’s consolidated financial statements to be included as part of Super Group’s Annual Report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2023 to be filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release includes non-GAAP financial information not presented in accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standards as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (“IASB”, hereafter "IFRS").

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, revenue on a constant currency basis and Operational EBITDA are non-GAAP company-specific performance measures that Super Group uses to supplement the Company’s results presented in accordance with IFRS. EBITDA is defined as profit before depreciation, amortization, finance income, finance expense and income tax expense/credit. Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA adjusted for gain on derivative contracts, gain on bargain purchase, share listing expense, transaction fees, change in fair value of option, market closure costs, adjusted RSU expense, change in fair value of warrant liabilities and earnout liabilities and associated foreign exchange movements, impairment of goodwill, unrealized foreign currency gains and losses and other non-recurring adjustments. Operational EBITDA is Adjusted EBITDA further adjusted to exclude other non-operational adjustments outside of the current year’s operations as may be deemed appropriate by the company’s audit committee. Constant currency revenue growth is calculated by translating non-Euro performance for 2022 and 2023 using 2022 exchange rates.

Super Group believes that these non-GAAP measures are useful in evaluating the Company’s operating performance as they are similar to measures reported by the Company’s public competitors and are regularly used by securities analysts, institutional investors and other interested parties in analyzing operating performance and prospects.

Management does not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with IFRS. The principal limitation of these non-GAAP financial measures is that they exclude significant expenses that are required by IFRS to be recorded in Super Group’s financial statements. In order to compensate for these limitations, management presents non-GAAP financial measures together with IFRS results. Non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to results and guidance prepared in accordance with IFRS, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, IFRS results.

Reconciliation tables of the most comparable IFRS financial measure to the non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release and supplemental materials are included below. Super Group urges investors to review the reconciliation and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate its business. In addition, other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate similarly named non-GAAP measures differently than we do, which limits their usefulness in comparing our financial results with theirs.
