Playtech plc Declares Interim Dividend for the Six Months Ended June 30, 2015, Payable on October 26, 2015; Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Six Months Ended June 30, 2015

The Board of Playtech plc has declared an interim dividend in respect of 2015 of €9.6 cents per share, an increase of 8% over the 2014 interim dividend of €8.9 cents per share, a lower increase than the adjusted net profit due to the issue of new shares at end of June. Ex-dividend date is 24 September 2015. Record date for dividend is 25 September 2015 and payment date is 26 October 2015. The company announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the six months ended June 30, 2015. For the period, the company reported revenues of €286,030,000 against €214,359,000 a year ago. EBITDA was €107,346,000 against €95,775,000 a year ago. Profit before taxation was €85,801,000 against €76,871,000 a year ago. Profit attributable to owners of the parent was €83,917,000 or €28.8 cents per diluted share against €75,612,000 or €25.9 cents per diluted share a year ago. On adjusted basis, the company reported revenues of €286,030,000 against €214,359,000 a year ago. EBITDA was €112,932,000 against €97,597,000 a year ago. Profit before taxation was €116,855,000 against €98,026,000 a year ago. Profit attributable to owners of the parent was €114,971,000 or €39.5 cents per diluted share against €96,767,000 or €33.1 cents per diluted share a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities was €96,386,000 against €98,614,000 a year ago. Acquisition of property, plant and equipment was €10,860,000 against €10,620,000 a year ago. Acquisition of intangible assets was €1,919,000 against €700,000 a year ago. The results for the period were driven by a variety of factors, including the continued organic growth of the business with further business wins, acquisitions which included Aristocrat Lotteries, Eurolive, Cyclone, Yoyo, Markets Limited and further smaller acquisitions, the introduction of the POC tax in the U.K., the significant weakening of the euro within the first half and investment into new white-label arrangement in regulated markets. The increase in revenue and EBITDA results were negatively impacted by upfront investment into white-label offering, which will benefit -- the benefit of which should come through in the future when such initiatives achieve the necessary scale. The adjusted EBITDA margin of 39.5% in the half was impacted by lower margin of acquisitions and white-label activity together with the impact of the U.K. POC tax. The strong operating cash flows in the period support a 19% increase in total dividend payout, which is in line with growth and adjusted net profits.

Playtech Seeks Acquisitions

Playtech plc (LSE:PTEC) is looking for more acquisitions to add to the three it has already made this year. "We definitely intend to continue considering certain additional M&A opportunities going forward, for both gaming and online (contract-for-difference) trading," Chief Executive Mor Weizer told Reuters.
