Management expects the continued strong growth in cash receipts and revenue to continue within the Australian domestic market and intends to leverage products and services into International markets in line with the Company's expansion plans.

Company CEO Todd Buckingham said: "The business has now delivered two consecutive quarters of sustained growth, leveraged from its strong base of recurring revenues, and we believe we are in a strong position to continue to expand our products and services.

"The impressive growth we are seeing over the past two quarters is a result of the successful development, launch and implementation of our products and services in the Australian market over the past few years.

"The Company has a strong technology and leadership team across the business and its innovative B2B wagering technology products have generated strong results since launching into the Australian market, which gives us great confidence for further roll outs both domestically and into new overseas markets.

"In particular, Our Managed Trading Services business has been a success, not only for BetMakers but also for our customers using the service."

During this period of growth the Company is continuing to invest in product development and its international expansion strategies. This is reflected in an increase in staff costs during Q1 FY21 as the Company hired key personnel across its product development and commercial teams to ensure its ability to meet increased customer demand domestically and overseas.
