Commenting on the results, CEO Kenneth Alexander, said:

"Executing the complex acquisition and turnaround of Sportingbet has been a milestone for GVC and has led to greater geographical diversification and a significant increase in profits and dividends.

"We are now ready for the next stage in our corporate development and further geographic expansion through organic growth and acquisitions. GVC aims to deliver this without diluting the dividend. The Board is confident of meeting current market expectations for the 2014 financial year."
