UK's Online Gambling Group Reports Trading Update

Sportingbet plc issued a trading update on Wednesday preparing to announce the three month end on 31 July 2011.

"As expected, the trends experienced during the previous nine months of the year have continued into the final quarter," Management reports.

"Challenging economic conditions in some of our European markets have resulted in an increased focus on cost control. Our Australian and Emerging Markets businesses continue to demonstrate the benefits of the Group's geographic diversity with resilient performances throughout the year.

"The company's proposed acquisition of Centrebet [in Australia] is expected to complete at the end of August 2011, with Centrebet shareholders due to vote on the acquisition on 17 August. The acquisition is in line with the company's strategy of increasing the proportion of its business derived from regulated markets.

"The Group continues to monitor regulatory developments closely and expects to take advantage as markets move towards implementing regulation.

"The Directors remain confident of the outcome for the financial year just ended."

The preceding results will be released on 5 October 2011 with no updates on talks between Sportingbet and Ladbrokes plc.
