Catena Media reviews strategy after acquisition interest

Catena Media has said that it has begun a strategic review following acquisition interest for parts of its business, including its Ask Gamblers casino brand and its financial trading unit. Catena said it would review potential transactions, structural changes and strategic initiatives to decide on the best long-term approach.

It said the review will look at “all feasible alternatives and assets” including the potential sale of some assets, not only the AskGamblers brand and the financial trading business, however it has ruled out the possibility of any immediate move.
