Score Media’s NASDAQ Launch

 

Score Media and Gaming, a sports-oriented digital media and betting services provider, is primarily known for its international betting app, theScore. It started, however, as this small firm back in 1994 under the original name of ‘ScoreScope’, which was then acquired by Canadian telecom giant Rogers Communications Inc in 2012. As founder John Levy retained the rights of its digital assets under subsidiary Score Media, the company slowly expanded to become what it is today.

With its plans to debut on Nasdaq, Score Media announced on Wednesday that its marketed public offering saw the purchase of 6 million shares at a price of US$ 27 apiece. The offering, Score Media said,  generated total gross proceeds of about US$ 162 million.
