EBITDA Formula

Gross income from gaming operations in 2018 amounted to 2.02 billion rupees ($28.70 million), which is 29.6% more than in the period from October to December 2017. Online games made a profit of 378.3 million rupees ($5.37 million), which is 33.11% more than in the previous year.

Growth rates were generally in line with forecasts,” - said Union Gaming’s analyst, adding that EBITDA, which was almost 41%, peaked since licensing fees increased in Goa, where the company operates four casinos.

He also noted that when management reduces the cost of marketing and advertising, while maintaining revenue growth, due to an increase in EBITDA profitability, there is a sharp increase in online profit margins.

Floating casinos in Goa dismantle the highest growth rates. Ongoing operations with floating casinos consistently provide the best rates of mass market growth in all of Asia,” - the analyst said. He also foresees growth of 36% over the entire 2019 and an aggregate annual growth rate of 31% from 2015.

The Goa Tourism Development Corporation (GTDC) has developed a policy for moving floating casinos to land.
