Tipico is Germany's leading sports betting provider.

Founded in 2004, Tipico has developed a multi-channel proposition that uses an online and mobile platform and a network of over 1,000 franchisee betting shops to offer odds on almost 30 different sports and a range of online gambling products. As a result of its proprietary technology stack and strong brand awareness, Tipico has built up a 40% market share in Germany.

Following completion of the partnership transaction, our local deal team based in Frankfurt works closely with the company’s founders to develop a strategy that leverages Tipico's unique market position and CVC's extensive industry knowledge.

Within the first three months of CVC's ownership, Tipico has appointed a new management leadership team and reorganised the company to improve efficiency and prepare for its next stage of growth. We expect to create value through further investments in Tipico's product offering, retail presence and CRM.

Tipico is a remarkable success story - it has transformed itself to the German market leader within a decade of its foundation. I am greatly looking forward to working with CVC to enhance the company's existing successes and lead the company through its next chapter of growth.
