After completing a strategic review in February the company decided to divest its B2C assets to Betsson in a €31m deal.
The fee consisted of €22.3m in cash payments, plus a pre-paid platform fee of €8.7m.
Other cost-saving initiatives have been implemented, with GiG expecting to reduce its operating expenses and headcount to approximately 430 by the end of 2020.
Richard Brown, GiG CEO, said: «GiG returns to topline growth as a group for the first time in five quarters, and many of the actions we have taken in Q4 and Q1 will enable further cost savings, optimisation of the organisation and performance that will be a leaver to improved earnings in the second part of the year.»
