“18H1 was an important half for Tabcorp as we completed the combination with Tatts Group, bringing together two highly complementary businesses. The combination positions us well to invest, innovate and compete in a rapidly evolving environment,” said Tabcorp managing director and CEO, David Attenborough.

And added: “The 18H1 financial result reflects a period of reshaping the Tabcorp business for sustainable growth. This includes implementing the combination with Tatts, exiting Luxbet and Odyssey Gaming Services, and our ongoing investments in areas such as our digital capability, customer acquisition and the risk management and compliance framework.”

However, Tabcorp’s revenues achieved US$1.4 billion in the interim period, up 18.7 per cent year-on-year. Furthermore, TAB business report 3.1 per cent turnover growth driven by an uplift in digital turnover and strong customer acquisition.
