Sportingbet purchased Dutch bookmakers

After the bookmaker Sportingbet published its financial report of the last 12 months since 31.07.2010 till 31.07.2011 we can assure ourselves that this bookmaker is now showing excellent results. All indicators are at a high level and it is being awaited that such a result will dubiously change in the nearest future. The purchase of the Australian bookmaker Centrebet for AU $ 183 million can be enlisted to the latest successes. Lately there have been rumors about consolidation of two British giants Ladbrokes and Sportingbet but the talks haven't ended yet.

Continuing its development policy Sportingbet purchased the Dutch online bookmakers Danbook Limited and Scandic Bookmakers Limited. This purchase cost the company a huge sum of £8.5 million. In accordance with the agreement which will become operative at the beginning of 2012, the British bookmaker will pay £4 million for the purchase in cash and £0.5 million in shares, bought out after the end of trades, and also £4 million will be paid out in case of a successful transition of Danbook and Scandic to the operating platform of Sportingbet. The main basis for such actions of this well-known bookmaker is the fact that on the first of January 2012 a new legislative act will become operative in Denmark in which lowering of the tax rate level for internet-operators in comparison to land stakes receiving points will be the fundamental element.
