Kenneth Alexander, CEO said:
"I am delighted to be able to report a continuation of the strong trading performance previously announced at the time of our final results on April 25th. It is pleasing to see that our strategy to reinvigorate growth at bwin.party is delivering positive early results, which is in part a reflection of the high quality people within the enlarged Group.
"This, together with the transformational B2B deal with Betfred, that we announced yesterday, gives me confidence that we can deliver significant value to our shareholders. In addition, the plan to seek a transfer to the Premium Segment of the Official List is progressing and we anticipate making further announcements on this in due course."
