Paddy Power Betfair parent Flutter Entertainment said revenues had been more resilient to coronavirus disruption than expected, with the U.S. gaming market and continued Australian horse racing partly offsetting a global sports events shutdown. It had also flagged a possible further 30 million pound rolling monthly hit if horse racing was cancelled in Britain, Australia and Ireland and its shops closed. While racing has since ended in Britain and Ireland, and all Paddy Power stores shut, its continuation in Australia limited the year-on-year decline in revenue from March 16 to April 12 to 32%, less of a sports hit than the gambling group expected.

Paddy Power Betfair parent Flutter Entertainment will pay its 2019 dividend in ordinary shares, shelve a pro-rated dividend in relation to its merger with Stars Group Inc (TSG) and suspend the 2020 dividend for the combined group. Disruption to global online betting and gaming is expected to impact the financial profile of the combined group in the current financial year, Flutter said on Friday, likely pushing its net debt at the end of the first reporting period following completion above 3.5 times core earnings.
The owners of gambling brands Paddy Power, Betfair, Ladbrokes and William Hill warned on Monday of a big hit to earnings because of an unprecedented shutdown of global sports events caused by the coronavirus, hammering shares across the sector. Flutter Entertainment Plc, which operates the Paddy Power and Betfair brands, estimated that it would face a 90 to 110 million pound ($111 million-$136 million) impact on full-year earnings if curbs on sports fixtures remained in place until the end of August. GVC Holdings Plc, owners of the Ladbrokes betting shop chain, said its full-year core earnings may be reduced by 130-150 million pounds because of fewer sports fixtures.
Thursday is arguably the day the impact became tangible, as a slew of UK companies warned coronavirus was hurting their business.
Full-year earnings at Paddy Power Betfair parent Flutter Entertainment fell in line with the gambling group's guidance as it prepares to close its acquisition of Poker Stars operator Stars Group Inc (TSG) . Flutter agreed in October to buy Toronto-listed TSG in a $6 billion share deal that is set to create the world's largest online betting and gambling company by revenue upon its expected completion in the second or third quarter of 2020. Earnings across betting firms have been squeezed by the imposition of betting tax increases across developed markets such as Britain, Ireland and Australia, where Flutter made most of its 2.1 billion pounds in revenue last year.
Britain's competition regulator said on Wednesday it plans to investigate the planned merger of gambling companies Flutter Entertainment and The Stars Group . Dublin-based Flutter owns the Paddy Power and Betfair brands, while Toronto-based The Stars Group owns Sky Betting and Gaming. The Competition and Markets Authority said it would consider whether the tie-up would result in "a substantial lessening of competition" in Britain.
The merger was announced in October, when Flutter said that the deal would create the world’s biggest online betting and gaming firm.
The pound inched higher on Wednesday in very thin trading, shrugging off an opinion poll for Britain's election that showed the ruling Conservative Party might fail to win a majority. The narrowing of the Conservative's lead just a day before the vote has cast some doubt on the expectations of a definitive outcome that have boosted sterling in recent weeks. The British currency was last up 0.2% at $1.3180, not far from the eight-month high above $1.32 it hit on Tuesday.
