Paddy Power Betfair on Monday reported revenues were up by 89 percent during its very first year as a merged business, despite costs connected with the merger that ultimately dragged straight down its bottom line.
Paddy energy Betfair chief Breon Corcoran is bullish about the business’s leads. The integration for the two giants that are betting running in front of schedule, he said.
While revenues soared to £1.5 billion ($1.83 billion) in 2016, these numbers had been tempered by one-off merger-related payments of £116 million ($141 million), which weighed heavily on its operating profits.
These were down to £15 million ($18 million) from £125 million ($152 million) a year previously.
Since Paddy Power and Betfair only finalized their £7 billion ($8.5 billion) merger in February 2016, needless to say, relative figures for 2015 have already been calculated as if they were merged entities in that year.
