2015 dragged by a weak Q3

  • 05 Nov 15

William Hill announced a tough Q3 15 which came in below expectations, dented by new and increased taxes introduced in the UK (£23m incremental duties in Q3) and tough comps (FIFA World Cup fell in July 2014). Weaker than expected sporting results (horse racing in particular) have weighed on Retail, the US and Australia (-31% in wagers, -91% in EBIT) while the decline in the non-core Online market was partially offset by tight cost control. Retail (-8% in net revenues) was hampered by a weak OTC (-14% in OTC net revenue, -3.1ppts in gross win margin) explained by disappointing horseracing (very punter-friendly horseracing margin) and football (tough comps). Machines experienced a 2% drop in gross win, following the introduction of the £50 limit but trading in September gained momentum driven by improved content. In Online, the UK grew strongly (+7% in amounts staked, +15% in net revenue) while Spain (13% in wagering) and Italy (+24%) recorded double-digit growth in sports turnover and gaming net revenues (at constant FX). The non-core businesses (-14% on wagering, -40% in net revenue) dragged down the Online division, impacted by falling revenues resulting from the exit from unregulated markets (Portugal and Estonia due to a change in the regulatory regime) along with FX moves. Sportsbook was hampered by punter-friendly racing results (horseracing notably), posting 0.8ppts lower in the gross win margin yoy. The group revised down its annual EBIT target to the lower end of the City consensus (£291-312m). Group net revenue slipped by 9% in Q3 yoy, while EBIT collapsed by 39%, reflecting weak Retail (-31% in EBIT) and Online (-37%, £18m impact of the PoC tax). The latter was hit by £18m of the PoC tax, slightly mitigated by cost controls (-6% in operating costs).
