CEO Letter

Dear shareholders,

The esports and gaming industry is shifting. We witness profound changes in the industry that reinforce our initialinvestment thesis: "esport and gaming is not just playing games." We have witnessed exciting progress that validatesthis thesis, as organizations managing esports teams are expanding their scope to become media and entertainmentcompanies or agencies. While their original business areas continue to be crucial, the revenue contribution from these areas isgradually declining in comparison to the expanding business areas. Those esports organisations that are not embracingthis new reality are perishing.

The RightBridge Venture Group is well prepared for this shift. We have methodically worked with our synergy puzzle to find costs optimization possibilities that have led to an EBITDA improvement of 7.5%, and of 17% on EBITDA adjusted basis on a 12 months rolling period

At RightBridge Ventures Group, our commitment to embracing esports and gaming-led social, economic, and technological changes has positioned us well in an industry that is reshaping itself and how people across the world connect, entertain, and interact. Thus, despite industry headwinds, adverse macroeconomic conditions and the ongoing portfolio transformation RightBridge Ventures Group is delivering a solid sales growth year-on-year of 290% and on a 12 months rolling basis close to 20% revenue growth.

Those results do not include the recently announced service contract in Bahrain.

Esports and gaming have emerged as powerful forces for social change, bringing people together from all over the world.Platforms like Discord and Twitch have created vibrant communities that transcend geographical boundaries. These communities unite individuals from diverse backgrounds who share a passion for gaming. Recognizing thesignificance of these communities, we are dedicated to fostering inclusivity and a sense of belonging within them.

Moreover, we understand that the industry is witness to significant shifts, with esports and gaming organizations capitalizing on user-generated games, in-game assets, micro-transactions, and the tokenization of digital assets.Gamers are no longer passive consumers; they have become creators, generating content, data, and user-generated content (UGC) that fuel a thriving gaming economy. Our strategic focus on monetizing the attention and data of esports andgaming consumers positions us at the forefront of this socio-economic transformation.

In tandem with these social and economic transformations, our portfolio companies and their partners are contributing to the technological advancements that underpin the esports and gaming industry. Technologies such as AI, blockchain, machine learning, virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), big data analytics, cloud computing, virtualization, or 5G have unlocked a world of possibilities to enhance the gaming experience for gamers and esportcontent consumers and brands, creating immersive environments and personalized experiences.

Our portfolio companies and their partners, such as YBVR (, utilization of blockchain or AR technologiesensures e.g. enhanced security, transparency, and ownership of digital assets.

However, I must address a recent setback. We made the decision to invest in Tricked, a company that we believed would significantly contribute to our synergy strategy plan. Regrettably, the economic situation negatively affected Trickedtransformation plan. Inflation, currency exchange and interest rates rapidly led to lower sales, increased costs andlower margins. Under those circumstances, and the lack of general adherence to execute on a crisis-oriented transformation plan, drove the RightBridge decision to halt investing in Tricked.

Continuing to support a venture that deviates from the transformation plan would not align with our commitment to creatingvalue for our shareholders. Hence, as a responsible company, we made the difficult decision to halt any further investments in Tricked. As a result, Tricked filed for bankruptcy in mid-April, as several other Scandinavian esports organizations havedone during the last few weeks.

While the situation with Tricked is disappointing, it does not diminish the incredible opportunities that exist in the esportsand gaming industry. We remain steadfast in our dedication to driving social, economic, and technologicaltransformations. We will learn from this experience and ensure that our future investments and partnerships align with our vision, strategy, and transformation plan. Our commitment to transparency, accountability, and delivering long-termvalue to our shareholders remains unwavering.

Our entire global team is motivated and dedicated to delivering the best experiences for gamers, brands and customersaligning with our growth factors:

  • RBV is a dedicated and diversified roll-up investment company within gaming and espor
  • RBV invests and acts as transformation catalyst in the development of an ecosystem of companies that developesports and gaming to be more than “just playing games”
  • RBV aims to achieve organic growth as well as growth through acquisitions, exponentially increasing revenuesalong with consumer reach.

I want to express my sincere gratitude to each and every one of you for your unwavering support during thesechallenging times. Your trust and confidence in our ability to navigate the ever- evolving landscape of esports and gaming are deeply appreciated.

Thank you for your continued trust and partnership.
