However, there was more positive news in terms of B2B, with this segment seeing revenue jump 200% year-on-year to £330,000.Major highlights for Nektan during the three months to June 30, 2019 included launching 13 new white label casino sites via its B2C business and expanding its B2C product offering with the roll-out of a new mobile-first bingo product.In terms of B2B, the number of partners currently active with Nektan increased from 10 in Q3 to 12 by the end of the fourth quarter, with more scheduled to go live during the current quarter.Nektan was also able to increase the number of games providers on its casino platform to 42 – with the addition of Rocksalt Interactive, ReelFeel, Rogue Gaming and Inspired Gaming – while four new games have been developed in partnership with Rocksalt and ReelFeel.“With an established proprietary technology platform and growing sales pipeline, Q4 has seen us go live with more B2C and B2B partners putting us in a strong position to accelerate our growth and increase revenues further over the course of FY20,” Nektan’s chief executive, Lucy Buckley, said.“In the B2B division, we continue to make exciting progress; our pipeline of opportunities is continuing to develop and has seen engagement with an increasing number of larger market participants globally.“Whilst Q4 saw a continuation of the B2C trading conditions we experienced in Q3, we have taken decisive action to structure the company in response to the changing gaming environment and to provide the strategic platform for expansion and growth in international markets.“Furthermore, a number of steps to enhance our product offering, including the launch of bingo and improved player journeys, have been completed in Q4 and we look forward to the new financial year with optimism.”The increase in full-year revenue comes after Nektan last month issued a profit warning to investors due to an ongoing, quarter-on-quarter decline in player deposits. At the time, Nektan said this trend would continue into Q4 and this has now been confirmed after figures were published in the trading update.
