B Riley FBR has been hired as sole underwriter to the flotation, despite the continued developments regarding COVID-19.

Founded in 2002, GAN plans to use the proceeds for working capital and general corporate purposes, including sales and marketing activities, product development and capital expenditures.

Any additional capital may go towards funding acquisitions and investments in complementary businesses, services, technologies and intellectual property rights.

GAN posted revenue of USD 29.97 million in the year ended 31st December 2019, up 113.8 per cent from USD 14.02 million in the previous 12 months.

Net income totalled USD 2.36 million in 2019, compared to a loss of USD 8.64 million in 2018.
