London AIM listed igaming marketing firm XLMedia has stated that it expects to hit all yearly targets as the company has seen ‘strong organic growth from its 2014 activity.

XLMedia issued its latest trading update for the 12 months ending 31 December 2014, with the firm expecting to post a revenue growth of 43% on 2013 performance.

The igaming player marketing and acquisition firm further stated that it expected to post revenues of $49.5 million, which would translate to an adjusted EBITDA sum of around $16.6 million representing a 24% increase on 2013 performance ($11.7 million).

The firm stated that its strong revenue performance had been driven by its 2014 M&A activity which had seen XLMedia acquire a major sports betting affiliate in August for $6.7 million.

The company has additionally expanded its services into social and mobile games marketing with the $19 million acquisition of specialist ad-network ExciteAd Digital Marketing.
