Chris Overholt, CEO of OverActive Media, commented on the report in a release: “We are delighted to report such strong third-quarter financial performance with adjusted revenue growth of 108.1% and near break-even EBITDA. Significant contributors to our revenue growth included strong sponsor revenue and league revenue share, as well as increased prize money winnings.”
Overholt additionally shared his thoughts on fourth-quarter performance: “We believe this year-over-year momentum will continue in the fourth quarter, driven largely by the significant contracted recurring revenue base, and as more sponsorship partners see the value of our team franchise model and additional league share revenue.”
“Looking beyond the fourth quarter, we believe our healthy balance sheet will allow us to pursue a multi-faceted growth strategy, including potential acquisitions to enhance our reach. We are convinced that continued league revenue share growth, as well as the maturation of our sponsorship model, will drive considerable revenue growth while longer-term, the income generated from our performance venue project following its completion will drive significant value creation.”
Esports Insider says: OverActive Media’s Q3 revenue consolidates its position as one of the biggest companies in the esports industry and as it begins trading on the OTCQB Venture Market, it should continue its upward path. With approval to build its new esports venue in Toronto, it will be interesting to see what the company does next and how it fares in its next financial report.
