Commenting on the results IGT CEO Marco Sala said, "Our 2018 results are in line with the improved outlook we provided in October. The year was characterised by strong global Lottery performance, resilience in Italy, and progress in North America Gaming. We've established solid foundations to build on - securing large, long-term Lottery contracts in key markets and executing a full refresh of our gaming machine cabinet and content portfolio. These efforts will translate into improved free cash flow beginning in 2019."
