Scientific Games revenue exceeds expectations
Scientific Games on Tuesday reported net income of $95 million in its fourth quarter. For the year, the company reported profit of $371 million, revenue was reported as $2.15 billion.
The gaming business demonstrated continued momentum with revenue growing year over year and sequentially across all segments. Revenue also benefited from strong growth at iGaming with U.S. revenues up 112% compared to the prior year period. SciPlay delivered 2nd highest revenue quarter ever with growth in key payer metrics.
Online revenue increased 15% and AEBITDA grew 25% from the prior year quarter with performance driven by the strength of our original content and new U.S. states coming online as U.S. revenue grew 112%. Wagers processed through our iGaming platform have increased to $17.2 billion in the fourth quarter.
Jamie Odell, Executive Chair, stated, “from the outset we recognized the enormous opportunity to drive increased shareholder value through re-structuring the balance sheet, redefining the portfolio and becoming a sustainable growth company.
We are already seeing the early stages of the strategy successfully executed and with the announced divestitures, the Company will immediately shift from a debt to an equity story and achieve gearing significantly below the levels we underwrote in our investment thesis. We couldn’t be happier with the way the entire team have executed on the transformation strategy, and our initial expectations are already being exceeded.”
