TORONTO, July 28, 2020 – Score Media and Gaming Inc. (TSX Venture: SCR) (“theScore” or the “Company”), today announced the financial results for the three and nine months ended May 31, 2020.

“The past quarter has been a period of unprecedented challenge, as the world grappled with the vast impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the disruption of nearly every major sports league and event,” said John Levy, Founder and CEO of theScore. “Through this difficult period, I couldn’t be prouder of how our team has come together to respond, first and foremost, by taking care of each other.

“During this period, we have continued to press ahead at full strength on key initiatives, including the development of our mobile sportsbook, theScore Bet, and we remain on track for our multi-state roll-out into Colorado and Indiana later this summer, subject to receiving all relevant licenses and approvals. Across our media platforms, we have focused on delivering innovative and interactive content formats, resulting in the retention of nearly 75% of our monthly active users compared to the same period last year, with users continuing to engage with our app on a daily basis.

“Live sports has the power to serve as a positive and welcome outlet during what remains a difficult and challenging time. We’re primed to deliver a best-in-class, integrated media and gaming experience as fans eagerly welcome major leagues and sporting events back to play. To that end, we’re already seeing great momentum building. On theScore, in the few days since baseball’s return, sessions have doubled compared to the days prior. At the same time, in the first week of live baseball on theScore Bet, we nearly matched our total betting handle from Super Bowl week. All with just one of the major sports back at play.”

Q3 F2020 Highlights

    • theScore continued to execute on product roadmap initiatives to further enhance theScore Bet user experience. These included the addition of numerous new markets, a native payments system, and enhancements to our promotional infrastructure.
  • Total views of theScore esports’ video content across all platforms reached a new all-time quarterly record of 145 million in Q3 F2020, year-over-year growth of 113%. Total watch hours for theScore esports’ YouTube channel reached a new all-time quarterly record of 9.7 million, year-over-year growth of 76%.
  • theScore’s social sports content across Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram achieved an average monthly reach of approximately 104 million in Q3 F2020. In addition, theScore’s TikTok account grew by more than 80% in Q3 F2020 and now exceeds 1.7 million followers.

Audience Metrics

Despite the unprecedented disruption to the sports calendar caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company achieved 2.9 million average monthly active users of theScore app on iOS and Android in Q3 F2020, representing nearly 75% of its average monthly active users achieved in the same period in the previous year. Live sports events drive significant engagement in theScore app, and the disruption to the sports calendar led to an expected decline in engagement in Q3 F2020. However, theScore’s focus on delivering innovative and interactive content during this period resulted in users continuing to engage with theScore app on a daily basis, with 35 average monthly sessions-per-user during Q3 F2020.

Across theScore esports’ platforms, total video views reached a new all-time quarterly record of 145 million in Q3 F2020, year-over-year growth of 113%. Total watch hours for theScore esports’ YouTube channel reached 9.7 million, year-over-year growth of 76%. An additional 189,000 YouTube subscribers were added during the period, with total channel subscribers now exceeding 1.4 million.

theScore’s social sports content across Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram achieved an average monthly reach of approximately 104 million in Q3 F2020, year-over-year growth of 5%. theScore’s TikTok account added approximately 620,000 new followers in Q3 2020. Total account followers now exceed 1.7 million, reinforcing its position as one of the most popular sports media accounts on the platform.

Financial Results

Total revenue for Q3 F2020 was $2.4 million compared to $8.5 million for the same period last year, while total revenue for the nine months ended May 31, 2020 was $18.3 million compared to $24.7 million for the same period last year. This anticipated decline in revenue for the period reflects the direct impact of the disruption to the sports calendar caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gaming handle[1] was $3.7 million in Q3 F2020 and $26.7 million for the nine months ended May 31, 2020. Gross gaming revenue[2] was $81,000 in Q3 F2020 and $766,000 for the nine months ended May 31, 2020. When taking into account promotional costs and fair value adjustments on unsettled bets, this resulted in negative net gaming revenue[3] of $22,700 and $244,000 for the three and nine months ended May 31, 2020.

EBITDA loss in Q3 F2020 was $8.7 million versus EBITDA loss of $1.1 million for the same period last year. EBITDA loss for the nine months ended May 31, 2020 was $22.2 million versus EBITDA loss of $2.3 million in the same period last year. The increase in EBITDA loss was primarily due to the COVID-19-related impact on revenue for the period and the result of additional expenses incurred in connection with the expansion of our gaming operations compared to the prior year.

During the period, the Company took significant measures to manage costs, including the reduction of discretionary expenses and availing itself of applicable Government programs, including the Canadian Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS). Additionally, in April 2020, every member of theScore’s senior management team agreed to forego 25% of their salary from May 1 to August 31, 2020 in exchange for an equivalent grant of Restricted Stock Units (RSUs) in the Company, with a variation of this program also made available on an optional basis to all full-time staff.

As a result of these cost containment measures, the Company’s cash use in the quarter was limited to $3.9 million. The Company ended the quarter with $17.6 million of cash on hand and $5 million revolving demand operating credit facility that remains undrawn.

Credit Facility

In July 2020, the Company entered into a $6.25 million revolving term credit facility with the same Canadian chartered bank that maintains the Company’s $5 million revolving demand operating credit facility, supported by Export Development Corporation’s Business Credit Availability Program. The term credit facility is available to provide additional liquidity to the Company and to mitigate the impact of COVID‑19 on the Company’s operations. The term credit facility is secured by substantially all of the assets of the Company and certain of its subsidiaries. The term credit facility bears interest rate at the lenders prime rate plus 2.00% per annum and is subject to a facility fee in respect of the EDC BCAP program of 1.80%. The term credit facility is repayable by July 15, 2021, is extendable for a further period of 364 days in certain circumstances and is subject to certain financial covenants. On July 24, 2020, the Company completed a drawdown of the revolving credit facility in the amount of $6.25 million.

Financial Statements and Management’s Discussion and Analysis

Score Media and Gaming Inc. reports its financial results in Canadian dollars, unless otherwise indicated.  The Company’s unaudited interim consolidated financial statements, accompanying notes, and Management’s Discussion and Analysis for the three and nine months ended May 31, 2020 are prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) and are available on the Company’s Investor Relations page.

TORONTO, June 12, 2020 – Score Media and Gaming Inc. (TSX Venture: SCR) (“theScore” or “the Company”), today supported calls by the commissioners of five major professional sports leagues for the Canadian federal government to allow single-event sports wagering in the country.

In a joint statement sent to several key members of the Canadian government, Adam Silver from the National Basketball Association (NBA), Gary Bettman from the National Hockey League (NHL), Rob Manfred from Major League Baseball (MLB), Don Garber from Major League Soccer (MLS), and Randy Ambrosie from the Canadian Football League (CFL) called on the country’s federal laws to be updated to authorize provinces to offer betting on single sporting events.

theScore Founder and CEO John Levy has previously voiced support for proposals by the Ontario provincial government to legalize online gambling in the province, as well as calls to legalize single event sports wagering at the federal level. The Company has also been an active participant in the province’s stakeholder consultation process.

“We strongly support the league commissioners’ calls to promptly amend Canada’s outdated federal laws to provide a safe, regulated, and competitive sports betting environment for fans in this country,” said Levy. “Sports betting is a major part of the fan experience and already takes place in Canada through the unlicensed grey market with offshore operators. For the past two years, the United States has demonstrated the kind of tangible consumer and tax benefits related to regulated sports betting that could be similarly impactful in Canada.”

In September 2019 theScore made history by becoming the first sports media company in North America to create and launch a mobile sportsbook. Currently taking wagers in New Jersey and set to expand into both Indiana and Colorado in the coming months, subject to receiving all licenses and approvals, theScore Bet has been uniquely integrated with theScore’s highly-popular sports news and scores app to deliver a holistic media and gaming experience.

“We’re often asked by our Canadian users how they can bet through theScore, a sports media platform they already know and trust, versus the current list of unregulated offshore providers,” said Levy. “When the opportunity to do that arises, theScore will be ready to offer Canadians a truly best-in-class mobile sports betting experience with theScore Bet.”
