The Rank Group has released its preliminary 12-month financial report for the year ended 30 June 2023, when the company saw a 6% increase in gross gaming revenue (GGR) to £681.9m ($868m).

Rank’s current share price, at the time of writing, is 89.62 GBp.

John O’Reilly, CEO of The Rank Group, said of the report: “The return of customers to our Grosvenor and Mecca venues continues to pick up and our second half numbers give cause for optimism after a very challenging couple of years. 

“During that time, our UK venues have faced a surge in energy costs, high wage inflation, a tightening in the regulatory environment, the slow return of overseas visitors to London’s casinos and the more general pressures on the consumer’s discretionary expenditure."
