We exceeded expectations set at IPO and subsequent upgrades, with revenues of €1,632 million and Adjusted EBITDA of €596 million at normalised payout (€580 million actual). We continued to grow both organically, increasing market share for the fifth quarter in a row, and through M&A, signing the acquisition of SKS365 and executing our bolt-on strategy.

Our objectives for 2024 are to strengthen our leadership position in both the Online and Sports Franchise segments through product and technology innovation, further develop the omnichannel model while managing efficiently our portfolio of brands and focus on the integration of SKS365.

I wish to thank all the Lottomatica people for their commitment in the achievement of these amazing results, our Board members for their continued support and our investors for their trust.”
