CIRSA continues strong 2015 momentum with Spain & Latin America expansions

sportiumSpanish gambling operator Grupo CIRSA has continued its strong 2015 momentum, reporting profits up 16% to €280 million for its year to date performance (period ending 30 September).

The Barcelona based operator would record a 19.5% revenue uplift to £1.2 billion driven by sufficient expansion in its Latin American markets notably Costa Rica and Peru.

To date, the operator maintained its improving performance in Spain by launching new product line Unidesa, a fruit machine manufacturer targeting Spanish bars and bingo halls. The launch of Unidesa has seen CIRSA significantly increase its games content coverage within the Spanish Market.

Group CEO Joaquim Agut was pleased with the operator performance stating: “In 2015 CIRSA has focused on efficient growth and productivity, combined with strict compliance, clear action plans and effective investments”
