The CEO of Golden Matrix, Brian Goodman, expressed confidence in the company’s position and its growth prospects, particularly in light of the pending MeridianBet acquisition. Golden Matrix agreed to buy MeridianBet in January of 2023, in a deal worth approximately $300 million.

Amendments were made in October that pushed the closing date to Q1 of 2024. In January, Golden Matrix said this was still the case, but the deal is yet to go through. A special meeting is scheduled for March 19, where Golden Matrix shareholders will vote on the deal.

We are exceptionally pleased with the company’s performance in Q1 to kick off the new fiscal year,” Goodman said. 

“We achieved positive GAAP earnings and adjusted EBITDA of almost $1.2 million, we set multiple records, delivering our highest-ever quarterly results for Revenue, Total Assets, Shareholder Equity and Cash-on-Hand. The company is well-positioned for continued growth within its B2B and B2C divisions.”

“We continue to make significant progress towards closing the pending Meridian Bet acquisition and look forward to working to boost top-line growth and profitability once these two world-class businesses have been combined,” he added.
