Engine Media Inc. is a gaming and analytics company that has assembled a diversified portfolio of businesses spanning sports gaming, eSports, media, targeted marketing, and data analytics. Led by a team bringing decades of experience at the intersection of media and advertising technology, the company recently moved from a Canadian listing to NASDAQ, where it now trades under the ticker “GAME.” Having registered a 360% year-on-year surge in revenue in Q2 of this year, Engine is positioned well for a strong finish to 2021 in the midst of overall declines in competitor performance and proactive efforts to defend Engine’s key basket of patents from infringement by hostile peers.
Messrs. Schwartz and Rogers discuss:
- Betting versus games of skill
- Leadership Team background
- Participation in high-growth sectors including esports, sports gaming, data analytics, influencer marketing, and programmatic advertising
- The unique combination of gaming and media businesses addressing both direct-to-consumer and business-to-business audiences
