Michael Daly, Catena Media CEO, said: “This agreement is another milestone on our journey to focus the business on the North American online sportsbook and casino affiliation market.

"I am also delighted that we have found a buyer that is well placed to build on the success of our UK and Australian sports and casino brands and will offer them the scope and support they need to develop and grow.”  

Christopher Russel, Moneta Communications CEO, said: “This acquisition allows Moneta Communications, as part of the OneTwenty Group, to further our plan to acquire fan-focused, profitable digital media assets that cover major sports in important markets.
