“The completion of the strategic review process and the execution of the agreement for the sale of Bragg's online media division to SML will allow us to focus our efforts and resources on Oryx, our B2B business, which is growing at an exponential rate,” Bragg CEO Dominic Mansour said in a statement.
“Given the current environment and the significant jump in virtual and digital activities, we have seen demand for Oryx’s online gaming and gambling services increase over the past few months. We have made significant strides over the past year in enhancing our platform and building this asset, and we will now be able to further streamline our activities and reduce our cash burn.”
