Focused on profitable growth

Jordan Gnat, the company’s founder and CEO, informed investors: “We are very excited to share our second quarter results. Our teams are hitting on all cylinders. The organic growth of our Futbol Sites business has been exceptional and in July we added Yardbarker, a company that has experienced very strong year-over-year growth to date. 

“Our pipeline remains robust and we have a strong balance sheet with currently over $13m of cash and zero debt. We remain focused on profitable growth, both organic and through acquisition.”

On April 1, Playmaker purchased Futbol Sites, a digital sports media organisation in the United States and Latin America with a portfolio of more than 10 premium sites, and on July 26, it bought sports and media startup Yardbarker.

On a pro forma basis, the Futbol Sites and Yardbarker-owned and operated properties achieved record engagement metrics in the quarter. Playmaker has over 70 million unique users, who created over 454 million sessions in Q2 2021, a 65 percent growth over Q2 2020.
