Aggressive organic expansion and/or acquisitions are alternative possibilities

Stride Gaming PLC (LON:STR) is reviewing all strategic options, it said as it responded to recent media reports.

Specifically, the company clarified that it was fined by the UK Gambling Commission once during 2018, not twice as implied in reports.

It is now reviewing its options, which include taking a more aggressive organic expansion strategy, expanding through acquisition or a potential sale of the company.

“The board reserves the right to alter or terminate the review process at any time and if it does so it will make an announcement as appropriate,” Stride said.

It added: “The board also reserves the right to reject any approach or terminate discussions with any interested party at any time.”
