of capital – augmenting growth through investment in technology and strategic M&A.

Playtech's six strategic pillars enable us to maximise opportunities and create added value for our shareholders.

We pioneer new ideas and technologies

We offer seamless experiences

We develop valuable partnerships

We help our partners differentiate themselves

Risk management

Our risk management framework provides a structured and consistent process for identifying, assessing and responding to risks, throughout the business.

Regulation and responsible business

Responsible business practices are critical to protecting our licences to operate, and to delivering long-term commercial success.

Governance

High standards of corporate governance contribute to Playtech’s continued success.

Support organic growth

The depth and breadth of Playtech’s offering means that we are able to partner with our licensees to deliver some of the most successful and innovative online businesses in the world. In 2016, Playtech achieved organic revenue growth of 13%, ahead of the growth of the underlying global market.

Cross-sell products and services

Playtech’s industry leading IMS and BI management systems allow licensees to enhance their customer journey, service and ultimately, their cross-sell ability e.g. Ladbrokes Coral Group and Paddy Power Betfair. In partnering with our licensees, we can support them in entering new product verticals and new geographical markets.

Attract new licensees

The value of Playtech’s market leading offering is reflected in the continued momentum of attracting new licensees every year. Playtech has an impressive track record of adding five to ten new licensees every year – attracted by our unique omni-channel offering and the quality of software and technology.

Increasing product, service and distribution capabilities

Playtech’s philosophy is to offer all product verticals across all distribution channels. Playtech invests to expand its offering to support its licensees with new technologies, avenues to market and products e.g. Playtech Live, virtual racing and casual gaming.

Improve quality of earnings

A strategic focus for Playtech remains to continue to grow its regulated revenue. This has been increasing steadily in the last few years and in 2016 the proportion of regulated revenues at Group level stood at 42%. In 2016 Playtech launched Sun Bingo and created the new Playtech BGT Sports division which should result in growth of regulated revenue in 2017.

Acquisitions remain key

Playtech has an outstanding acquisition track record, investing in new technology, exciting content, and new products. Companies have mostly been acquired on an earn-out basis, enabling Playtech to leverage its existing business and licensee base to create strong synergies. Playtech is focused on making further, similar bolt-on and larger acquisitions.

Our omni-channel philosophy

Consumers today live and play in a world without restrictions and so do we. A user’s experience should be the same no matter what the content, where it is accessed from, when it is played, or on whatever device they play on. The industry term for this is omni-channel. Only Playtech can deliver this – play any game, on any platform and on any device using a single account and a single wallet, anywhere and at any time. This is what we call Playtech ONE.

In November 2016 Playtech was pleased to announce the acquisition of a 70% stake in Consolidated Financial Holdings AS (CFH). CFH offers a Straight-Through Processing brokerage service which provides retail brokers multi-asset execution, prime brokerage services, liquidity and complementary risk management tools.

The agreement will back Playtech’s target of creating a business-to-business financial software offering and will provide a significant growth opportunity for CFH by providing it access to Playtech’s greater scale and financial strength.

Benefits of the acquisition

CFH will remain a provider of STP processing and, due to Playtech’s scale and financial strength, will be able to provide its customers with improved trading terms and more attractive margins

CFH customers will have access to a deeper pool of liquidity through the addition of intra group liquidity arrangements, enabling more competitive prices and  faster execution

CFH will have access to the Playtech Financials division’s wide range of CFD instruments which CFH will be able to offer on its clearing system over time

CFH will benefit from Playtech’s leading technological superiority to further develop its offering and improve client experience
