Loto-Québec, Inc. Key Developments

Loto-Québec Announces Management Changes

Loto-Québec announced that Simon Patenaude, President of Lottery Operations and, since last March, Loto-Québec's Interim President and CEO, has passed away. M Simon Patenaude began his career at Loto-Québec in 1984 in the Marketing Department and climbed the ranks to General Manager of Marketing in 2001. Twelve years later, he was appointed Corporate Vice President of Communications and Public Affairs, later returning to the Lotteries sector as Vice President of Sales and Marketing, and then President of Lottery Operations, a position he held since March 2015. Last spring, he was named Loto-Québec's Interim President and CEO. To ensure the continuity of commercial activities, Isabelle Jean, Vice President of Corporate Strategy, Innovation and Public Affairs, will continue acting as Interim President Lottery Operations, and Lynne Roiter as Loto-Québec's Interim President and CEO.

Loto-Quebec Extends Partnership with OpenBet

OpenBet has further extended its longstanding relationship with Loto-Quebec. The three-year deal not only extends OpenBet's existing partnership, but also sees the company provide Loto-Quebec with its new mobile portal solution, which launched at the end of 2015 and is a key part of the lottery's strategy for growth. OpenBet was selected based on the continued strength and flexibility of its solution, delivery timeframes and content library, alongside its ability to empower a genuine omni-channel experience across all products. The new agreement further aligns OpenBet with the lottery's growth strategy around convergence and is designed to support the planned changes to regulation within the province, that are currently in the process of being passed by the authorities. OpenBet has supplied Loto-Quebec with its online gaming solution since 2010 and supplies a number of public bodies worldwide, including Danske Spil and BCLC, while it also recently signed a new deal with the Singapore Pools.
