Comment on H1 2016 performance Fredrik Elmqvist CEO of Yggdrasil gaming stated:

The entire team can be very proud with how things have progressed in the first half of 2016 for Yggdrasil. Our strategy is firmly on track and we are consistently smashing our target numbers out of the park. Being awarded Slot Provider of the Year at the 2016 EGR B2B Awards was a huge moment for the company and proved that we are now a tier one supplier. This is all thanks to a rapid moving and growing team.

The growth we have achieved has been excellent, but we are still in a volatile phase of expansion so we need to view the current results in a more long-term perspective. We have focused predominantly on organic growth from existing customers over the past nine-twelve months, delivering a range of market-leading promotional tools that have proven very popular with our customers and their players.

Our attention now turns to new business as we are ready to take on a lot more after investing significantly in infrastructure and focusing on optimisation during H1. The fact we have signed massive names like bet365 and bwin.party shows how well our products and promotions are being received by the very best in the business
