The gambling giant estimates around £2 million would be wiped off its underlying earnings if 100 shops remained closed for four weeks.
The company, which is set to be acquired by U.S. casino operator Caesars Entertainment, estimated that shutting 100 shops for four weeks due to further local lockdowns would reduce core earnings by around 2 million pounds ($2.60 million). The betting firm said that around 10% of its betting shops are located in regions where the local COVID-19 alert level is classified as "very high" according to the government. While net revenue was down 9% for 13 weeks ended Sept. 29, the drop was lower than the 32% fall it posted for the first-half, with growth in the United States cushioning the decline.
