The company said one of its existing shareholders expects to grant the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 2.8 million shares at the IPO price. Entities affiliated with Elridge, Radcliff Management LLC and certain other investors have agreed to purchase $159.0 million aggregate principal amount of Class A ordinary shares at the IPO price.

Sportradar Group AG announced Tuesday that it plans to commence its roadshow for the initial public offering (IPO) of 19 million of its Class A ordinary shares.

The Switzerland-based provider of sports betting and sports entertainment products and services and solutions, upon announcing the terms for its IPO, stated that in addition to shares sold in the public offering one of its existing shareholders expects to grant the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 2.8 million Class A ordinary shares at the IPO price.

Sportradar has applied to list its Class A ordinary shares on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under the ticker symbol “SRAD”, and J.P. Morgan, Morgan Stanley, Citigroup and UBS Investment Bank will lead as book-running managers for the proposed offering.

The company further announced that entities affiliated with Elridge, Radcliff Management LLC and “certain other investors” have agreed to purchase $159.0 million aggregate principal amount of Class A ordinary shares at a price per Class A ordinary share equal to the initial public offering price.

BofA Securities, Deutsche Bank Securities, Jefferies and Canaccord Genuity will act as joint book-running managers of the offering, while Needham & Company, Benchmark Company, Craig-Hallum, Siebert Williams Shank and Telsey Advisory Group will act as co-managers.

Sportradar filed for the IPO last month, after merger talks with a special purpose acquisition company allegedly collapsed. The New York public offering aims at taking advantage of the legalization of sports betting in the US market, which is expected to continue growing at a fast pace.

The company counts with over 150 sports league partners and provides data to more than 900 sports betting operators, including heavyweights DraftKings and FanDuel. During H1 2021, the company reported revenue of $318 million.

In August, Sportradar extended its partnership with FanDuel through 2028, and under the terms of the agreement, the company is set to provide FanDuel Sportsbook with access to its suite of betting products, including complete pre-match betting services, live betting services, and betting entertainment tools.

In July, the company signed a 10-year deal for betting data and media rights with the NHL, which has been given the right to buy shares as part of the IPO. Other customers of the company include Major League Baseball.
