Terms of the Acquisition

Under the terms of the deal, Golden Matrix purchased MeridianBet for $30 million, with a further $20 million in a non-contingent cash consideration following the completion of the deal.

The purchase price was down from an original bid of $50 million, with Golden Matrix managing to reduce its initial bid price by restructuring the deal to include further cash related to performance after completion of the deal.

The purchase of MeridianBet was financed with a mixture of cash, some debt, and a partial stock transfer.
