  • Record revenue of $7.1 million in Q3 2022, up 93% year-over-year, and 35% quarter-over-quarter.

  • Momentum has continued into the fourth quarter with a single-month record betting handle of $37.2 million and revenue of $4.5 million in October 2022, achieving the first profitable month in the Company’s history.

  • Operating leverage and profitable customer unit economics set stage for accelerated growth as the Company scales into new verticals and markets.

  • Strong cash position and no debt provides an important foundation for further execution.

Rivalry Corp., an internationally regulated sports betting, media, and technology company, today announced its financial results for the three and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2022. The Company also announced preliminary results for the month of October, 2022. All dollar figures are quoted in Canadian dollars.

“Our leading brand position among Millennial and Gen Z consumers was a catalyst in generating meaningful revenue from esports betting during a period of several tentpole international events, and ultimately driving record results in the third quarter,” said Steven Salz, Co-Founder and CEO of Rivalry. “Our differentiated strategy and product offering is key in connecting with a demographic that legacy operators aren’t equipped to serve. We’ve created brand equity, loyalty, and consumer engagement that continue to guide our successful player acquisition and retention strategy, enhance customer unit economics, and highlight the operating leverage within the business that increases as we scale.”

“The momentum we saw during Q3 has continued into this current quarter as we delivered record results in October, including reaching our first profitable month,” Salz continued. “Delivering a clean net profit on a normalized basis is a promising validation of our overarching strategy which prioritizes sustainable user economics and careful capital allocation. While October will likely set our high benchmark in 2022 as seasonally one of the strongest months, we believe our +20% month-over-month average growth over the past year, successful casino product expansion, and increased market share ownership of esports betting positively signals directionally as to where we are headed on underlying profitability in the future.”
