With the suspension of virtually all live racing around the world, Sports Information Services (SIS) has announced that it will shut down ‘all non-essential services and to furlough a significant number of staff effective immediately.’
The provider of racing content and data services has clarified that it has taken the decision to ‘protect its long-term future.’
Richard Ames, SIS Chief Executive Officer said: “SIS is moving into an interim period of hibernation in these extraordinary times. I am pleased to be able to confirm that our intention is to come back just as strongly as before and to be back up and running to serve the needs of our customers as soon as live racing content returns to action.
“We are taking this action to protect the business and to preserve the jobs of our hard-working team. I thank each of them for their fantastic commitment to continuing to service our content partners and customers throughout the last challenging weeks and look forward to welcoming them back into the business as soon as possible.”
