Playtech 2017 Financials Rise

Internet casino game developer Playtech has announced their 2017 financial results, noting that revenues jumped 14% from last year.

Key financial indicators for the year ending December 31st, 2017 were:

  • Revenues of €807.1 million, up 14% from last year
  • Adjusted EBITDA of €322.1 million, up 7% from last year
  • Adjusted net profit up 14% to €231.4 million
  • Reported net profit up 28% to €248.1 million
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share of €0.668

Playtech's Chairman Alan Jackson spoke about the results, revealing: "Playtech delivered double digit revenue growth in 2017 despite headwinds in both regulated and unregulated operations.

"Playtech's performance continues to be converted into strong cash generation enabling a 10% increase to the full year dividend

"Playtech's strategy to improve the quality of earnings for the group, organically and through M&A, was evident in the increase in regulated revenue to 54%.

"The health of the core business coupled with the strength of the balance sheet means Playtech is strategically well placed to execute on M&A that will continue to drive this growth and further diversify Playtech's revenue base.

"Management is confident 2017 has delivered a strong platform for strategic progress in 2018 through execution of organic opportunities and M&A."

That is great..! I am a bit surprised though as there are not that many Playtech casinos (legit ones of course) and I have not really played those for a while now.

Yeah obviously Playtech doing well but I think it could be even better for them if they are wider spread, as Dina mentioned above.
