On April 24, 2020, DraftKings, Inc., a digital sports entertainment and gaming company known for its industry-leading daily fantasy sports and mobile sports betting platforms, went public when it was acquired by Diamond Eagle Acquisition Corp., a Special Purpose Acquisition Corporation (SPAC). The transaction also included the acquisition of SBTech Global Limited, an international provider of cutting-edge sports gaming technologies.

In a press release announcing the close of the transaction, Jason Robins, the CEO and co-founder of DraftKings said, "Today marks another milestone for DraftKings and the future of digital sports entertainment and gaming in America. By bringing together our leading consumer brand, data science expertise and industry-leading products with SBTech's proven technology platform, we will accelerate our innovation, growth and scale. I am confident that the new DraftKings will progress our goal of offering the best, most innovative sports and gaming products to our customers."

In May 2018, the Supreme Court struck down a 1992 federal law that effectively banned commercial sports betting - including online betting - in most starts, thus opening the door to legalizing the estimated $150 billion in illegal wagers on professional and amateur sports that Americans make each year.

For the year ended December 31, 2019, the consolidated entity had revenues of $431,834,000 and a net loss of $139,893,000, equal to $(.42) per fully diluted share.

On the first day of trading for the shares of the newly public DraftKings, trading under the symbol DKNG, closed at $19.35, up $1.82 for the day.

There are approximately 336,631,000 shares outstanding.

There are also 13,333,333 publicly traded warrants outstanding. The warrants, which trade under the symbol DKNGW, have an exercise price of $11.50 per share.
