Playtech Acquisition Still On The Cards

The strong results for FY21 encouraged the Aristocrat management to keep its offer to acquire Playtech on the table, despite recent reports regarding increased competition for the company. The Australian company agreed a deal worth 2.7 billion dollars to acquire Playtech, but then a rival bid seemed to appear from Gopher Investments, a minority shareholder in the international game developer.

Approximately a week later, Gopher Investments announced that it would not make an offer to acquire Playtech. However, the company received a preliminary approach from another party: JKO Play Limited, a firm that is controlled by former Formula One team-owner Eddie Jordan and Keith O’Loughlin, a former executive at American slot machine maker Scientific Games.

Playtech has confirmed the interest from JKO Play but added that discussions with this company “are at an early stage and ongoing.” Moreover, Playtech added in an official statement that “there can be no certainty that JKO’s approach will result in an offer, nor as to the terms on which any offer might be made.”
