Paddy Power, a strategic partner

In order to develop its future sports betting offer, PMU has signed an agreement with PaddyPower, one of the leading European and Australian bookmakers.

Through this partnership, PMU will be working with a leading company that boasts 20 years' experience in sports betting and operates only on the markets where it has regulatory approval to do so. Paddy Power will fix odds and handle risk management for PMU. The partnership will enable PMU to offer online sports betting under its own brand name and keep control of its database management, all the while enjoying the expertise of Paddy Power in sports betting.

PMU will offer a full range of online betting options, in horse and sports, with the aim of consolidating its leading position in horse betting and becoming one of the leading players in sports betting.

PMU, which aspires to become one of the top three online players in its sector and consolidate its leading position in horse betting, will put this global offer forth under its single brand, "PMU". The PMU brand means to customers the certainty of benefiting from the company's values and know-how.
