This press release corrects, replaces and entirely supersedes a prior version published on November 4, 2022
LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / November 9, 2022 / Golden Matrix Group Inc. (NASDAQ:GMGI)("GMGI", "Golden Matrix" or the "Company"), a developer and licensor of online gaming platforms, systems and gaming content, today announced it had exercised its Buyout Right to acquire the remaining 20% interest in RKings Competitions, Ltd. ("RKings") in consideration for a total of 165,444 restricted shares of GMGI's common stock payable to the two minority owners of RKings.
Golden Matrix CEO Brian Goodman said, "We are pleased to have exercised our Buyout Right to acquire 100% of this exciting and successful B2C business, which is highly scalable and expected to grow quickly in multiple regulated jurisdictions. In addition to Great Britain, we expect RKings' tournament platform to be popular and well-received by participants in Mexico, where it is already permitted to operate; and we believe it can expand into other Latin American markets over the next couple years."
Mr. Goodman also said the Company had also recently launched a complementary business, GMGI Assets, which is expected to serve to enhance the revenue stream and profit, being generated by the RKings division and stated, "As an example, and in some instances, the tournament winner of an expensive automobile may choose to take a predetermined cash option in lieu of the car. When this occurs, GMGI Assets will take possession of the car and resell it. Each transaction has a built-in positive margin, and we expect this business to make significant contributions to GMGI's overall financial results as the number of auto tournament offerings continues to grow in Great Britain, as well as additional jurisdictions in the future."
The closing of the acquisition of the remaining 20% interest in RKings is subject to the delivery by the sellers of certain required items, including stock powers and certifications.
More information regarding the transaction discussed above is disclosed in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 2, 2022.
