In a letter to shareholders, Pointsbet chair Brett Paton and managing director and CEO Sam Swanell commented:

It has been another successful year for PointsBet. During the year, the company continued to capitalise on its expanding US presence … We currently have live online sportsbook operations in 10 US states plus Ontario, Canada and are live with iGaming in 4 states plus Ontario, Canada.

In SIG Sports we have found a strategic long-term partner who believes in PointsBet' ability to continue to grow and compete in the North American sports betting market. Susquehanna has both the analytical capability and the capital to help PointsBet realise this potential.

What's next?

Pointsbet didn't provide any new earnings guidance today. However, it did outline its predicted path forward.

The company believes North America will likely deliver the majority of regulated global gaming growth over the next decade.

It plans to take advantage of its partnerships with NBC, SIG Sports, Nellie Analytics, and Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment in Canada to capitalise on the apparent opportunity.
