Previously, Maris Catania, a leader in responsible gambling, announced her leave from the company.  The Group, though, has been able to continue and deliver strong results. Recently, the Group was nominated as a top employer in Sweden, holding the distinction for a second year in a row.

Although the company has been projecting strength, it is also facing a small exodus of top-level executives without any further clarifications. The Group is also said to be looking to sell parts of its business, but no further information has been made public regarding this as well.
