International Game Technology has reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023.

Revenue was $1.06 billion, fueled by 8% Global Lottery same-store sales growth and double-digit revenue growth in Global Gaming and PlayDigital. Adjusted EBITDA of $449 million and 42.3% Adjusted EBITDA margin among highest levels in company history.

“Our first quarter results exceeded expectations and put us firmly on track to achieve our full-year outlook,” said Vince Sadusky, CEO of IGT. “Compelling innovation and sustained strength in customer and player demand are fueling momentum across our Global Lottery, Global Gaming, and PlayDigital segments. This is clear in the excellent key performance indicators achieved in the quarter. We believe the focused execution of our strategy to Grow, Innovate, and Optimize should create significant value as we progress toward our 2025 goals.”

“The strong start to the year includes significant cash flow generation and further improvement in our credit profile,” said Max Chiara, CFO of IGT. “The continued improvement in net debt leverage reinforces our conviction in accomplishing the lower end of the 2.5x – 3.5x target range by 2025. We are focused on enhancing our financial flexibility, being operationally agile, and remaining disciplined with costs, all of which should enable the achievement of our 2025 margin and cash flow targets even in the current uncertain macroeconomic context.”
