GVC finalises Ladbrokes Coral migration

GVC Holdings has reached a ‘milestone’ after confirming that it has completed the migration of Ladbrokes onto its proprietary technology platform.

The Ladbrokes migration marks the final stage of a ‘complex integration process’ after acquiring the brand in 2018. All brands acquired by GVC have now been migrated onto the GVC platform, including Ladbrokes, Coral, Gala Bingo, Gala Casino and Gala Spins.

GVC COO Shay Segev commented: “I am delighted that this critical and hugely complex stage of the Ladbrokes Coral integration process has been completed so successfully. It is a great testament to the sophistication of our technology and the quality of our teams, and it is particularly impressive that they have managed to finalise it during this period of remote working. It also positions the business even better to emerge from the current crisis from a position of strength.

“The GVC integration model has proved itself time and again to be extremely effective at integrating large-scale operations with minimal disruption to our underlying business. As a result, we are confident in our ability to take advantage of the attractive M&A opportunities which we believe will present themselves to us in the future while further boosting the growth of our existing business.”

GVC lauded the timely completion of the migration, highlighting that it has been ‘executed on time, on budget and with no disruption to the 25 million Ladbrokes Coral customer accounts that have been moved across’.

The GVC platform is hoped to enhance product development and customer propositions, while also allowing GVC to adapt to regulatory change. It will also enable GVC to deliver a range of social responsibility tools and initiatives as it continues to promote a safer gambling environment.

With the platform migrations now complete, the remaining process and back office integrations can now take place, with GVC emphasising that it remains ‘on track’ to deliver the full £130m of annualised synergies by the end of 2021.
