Press Speculation

The GVC Board of Directors notes today’s press speculation regarding the HMRC investigation into legacy payment service providers to the Group’s former Turkish-facing business, disposed of in 2017.

HMRC’s investigation relates to former third-party payment service providers whose only legacy link to GVC was the provision of services to the Turkish-facing business.  The Board can confirm that it has no evidence of any link between the HMRC investigation and the payment service providers mentioned in the newspaper report.

As announced on 20 July 2020, GVC is fully complying with HMRC’s investigation and will update the market as appropriate.

As reported on 16 July 2020 GVC continues to perform strongly and looks forward to sharing more detail regarding its Interim financial results on 13 August 2020.  GVC continues to focus on nationally regulated and regulating markets, from which it generates 96% of its revenues.
