With Canada’s gaming industry becoming more digitally focused, and with single-event sports betting on the cusp of being allowed in Canada, this sector is ripe for consolidation. This industry will look much different in the years ahead.
Gaming sector-related M&A, however, can be complicated. There are numerous regulations that companies must follow, government contracts to assess, money laundering-related laws to understand and responsible gaming initiatives to take into consideration. As the sector expands, doing the right due diligence before a transaction is a must.
