8.2 Betit option
on 14 may 2014, the Company acquired a 15% stake in Betit holdings limited ('Bhl'). the Company has a call option to acquire
the balance of the outstanding shares. the call option can be exercised no earlier than 1 July 2017 and no later than 30 september
2017, and would be subject to further maltese Gaming authority clearance and the stock exchange Rules. the minimum call
option price is €70 million, and the actual price would be determined by the mix of revenues between regulated and non-regulated
markets and certain multiples attaching thereto.
if the Company decides not to exercise its call option Bsl may require the Company to acquire its shares in Bhl at a price
determined by the mix of revenues between regulated and non-regulated markets and certain multiples thereof (but absent any
floor on the price). Completion of this purchase would be subject to certain conditions including the Company's ability to raise
the necessary financing. should the Company not raise the required financing, Bsl may acquire the Company's shares in Bhl
for nominal consideration.
the Company engaged a third party valuations specialist to value the options using a monte Carlo valuation model based on the
enterprise value for Bhl and modelling of the anticipated exercise price. in valuing the underlying business of Bhl, a discounted
cash flow model was used, applying a long-term growth rate of 2% (2014: 2%) to the Company's forecasts and a discount rate
of 18% (2014: 18%) (based on comparison to industry peers and observable inputs). Based on this model, the fair value of the
put and call options was a net liability of €0.7 million (2014: €1.7 million), leading to a movement in the fair value of €1.0 million.
