Kenneth Alexander, GVC’s CEO, commented:

“The purchase of £5m worth of shares demonstrates my conviction that GVC’s strategy and long-term outlook will provide shareholders with strong returns, as supported by the continued positive momentum in the results we announced last week.  I am confident in the regulatory outlook in Germany and the UK, and in the group’s opportunity to take a leading position in the US market. I remain totally committed to GVC for the long-term.”

Notes to editors: The shares purchased by the Directors were traded cum dividend. The Company’s ex-dividend date in respect of the 17.6p interim dividend for 2019 (declared on 15 August 2019) is 22 August 2019.
