DraftKings Posts Exceptional Q4 Results, Updates 2024 Guidance

The company's latest financial update revealed strong growth in revenue for the fourth quarter and the fiscal 2023 year

The leading North American sports betting and iGaming operator, DraftKings, released its latest financial report. On Thursday, the company disclosed details regarding its performance for the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2023, highlighting a significant increase in revenue.

DraftKings’ latest unaudited report reveals that its revenue for 2023 hit $3.67 billion. This result, compared to the $2.24 billion figure posted for the fiscal 2022 shows an increase of nearly 64% year-over-year.

Besides year-over-year, the company posted exceptional results during the fourth quarter as well. In Q4 2023, DraftKings’ revenue soared to $1.23 billion. A comparison to the $855 million reported for the same period in 2022 shows an increase of $376 million or 44%.

The company explained that the result comes after a “continued healthy customer engagement, efficient acquisition of new customers, the expansion of the Company’s Sportsbook product offering into new jurisdictions, and product innovation leading to increased parlay mix and thus higher structural sportsbook hold percentage.”

The fourth quarter marked an uptick in the number of monthly unique players (MUPs). The latest trading update reveals that DraftKings’ MUPs in Q4 increased by 37% year-over-year to 3.5 million. DraftKings said that this uptick highlights strong customer retention and acquisition rates for its iGaming and sportsbook products. Moreover, the company acknowledged that its expansion into new jurisdictions positively impacted the number of MUPs.

The Company Ends 2023 with Excellent Results

Jason Park, DraftKings’ chief financial officer, revealed that the latest results underline the company’s ongoing commitment to implementing operating efficiencies and delivering strong revenue growth. In light of the exceptional performance for the fourth quarter and the first six weeks of 2024, he confirmed that the company updated its revenue guidance.

Park explained: “We are raising the midpoint of our fiscal year 2024 revenue guidance range to $4.775 billion from $4.65 billion and the midpoint of our fiscal year 2024 Adjusted EBITDA guidance range to $460 million from $400 million.” Finally, the chief financial officer said DraftKings anticipates 2024 will be its first full year of positive adjusted EBITDA.

DraftKings ended 2023 with excellent performance across customer acquisition, retention and engagement as well as structural sportsbook hold percentage despite the worst stretch of sport outcomes we have seen as a public company in the fourth quarter.

Jason Robins, CEO at DraftKings

Jason Robins, DraftKings’ CEO, also highlighted the strong results posted by the company for the last quarter of 2023. He said that despite challenges related to the outcome of sports events, DraftKings demonstrated strong customer engagement and retention. Focusing on 2024, Robins predicted that the company would keep the focus on its customers while growing the reach of its products and delivering supreme services.
