maltatoday, SUNDAY, 27 MARCH 2016 VI Gaming in Malta A milestone in LeoVegas' journey LEOVEGAS is a leading mobile gaming company with a vision to create the ul- timate gaming experience and be num- ber one in mobile gaming. An important milestone in LeoVegas' journey was its listing on Nasdaq First North Premier that took place on 17 March 2016. This was spurred by the platform's continued growth and the intention of diversifying the company's ownership base. LeoVegas shares are now traded under the ticker "LEO". In their comments, LeoVegas co- founders, Gustaf Hagman and Robin Ramm-Ericson, said: "Less than five years have passed since that spring evening when the concept for the mobile gaming company LeoVegas was born. When other players considered mobile gaming on par with online gam- ing on a smaller screen, with LeoVegas we saw a completely new world. "The breakthrough of the iPhone and other smartphones changed everything and the experience, user enjoyment and playfulness in mobile usage paved the way. The market for mobile gaming entertainment is still in its infancy. We want LeoVegas to lead the way in terms of product innovation and mobile experi- ence, and we see enormous growth po- tential in both new and existing markets as well as new product areas. "With a clear passion for customer experience, a focused and successful marketing strategy, a proprietary techni- cal platform and an innovations-oriented corporate culture, we feel that LeoVe- gas is well-positioned for this growth. LeoVegas' focus on long-term customer relations and a data-driven process have laid the foundation for a scalable business model." On the listing of LeoVegas on Nasdaq First North Premier, the co-founders said that they see it as a natural step of the company's development and in particular, they view it as a platform for continued robust growth. On the day of the IPO, LeoVegas an- nounced that the interest in subscribing of its shares was exceptionally strong. About this, Gustaf and Robin comment- ed, "We are happy about the extremely strong interest to invest in the LeoVe- gas share and we now welcome almost 30,000 new shareholders." Join the winning team LeoVegas has a strong team of around 250 people in its offices in Malta and Sweden. The working environment at LeoVegas reflects the fact that it is a young, entertainment company - the av- erage age is less than 30 years. Visiting their offices, you can immediately feel that it's a professional environment but you are also able to sense the fun and friendly culture that they have with one another and with their customers. To accomplish its vision of creating the greatest gaming experience and be the number one in mobile gaming, LeoVe- gas requires a team of great people, all with their respective areas of expertise. At the moment LeoVegas has almost 20 open vacancies in Malta alone. A few positions that really stand out are the IT administrator and systems admin- istrator to join technical operations, the UK CRM sports manager and sports- book specialist for the UK market, the accountant role to join the finance team, the receptionist who'll be joining the operations team, the English copywriter for the CRM team, the junior lawyer role within the legal team, the team leader and agent for the customer support department and the VIP manager role for the UK market. Joining the winning team at LeoVe- gas is really a step forward in your career. An independent survey carried out recently found that 92% of those working at LeoVegas would willingly recommend a career at LeoVegas to their family and friends. One of the reasons for this stems from the fact that the company offers a lot of training, development and career progression opportunities.
