The company’s gaming machine division generated 1.15 billion Australian dollars in revenue from the Americas, while Australia and New Zealand brought in a total of 222.7 million Australian dollars.
Aristocrat Leisure Limited also reported that its costs of revenue increased 11.2 percent compared to the first half of the 2020-202 fiscal year, but the company was left with a gross profit of 1.53 billion dollars, up 35.3 percent year-on-year.
Overall, the company registered a pre-tax profit of 598 million dollars, a figure which represents an increase of 29.7 percent compared to the same period of the previous financial year.
The Australian company paid 85 million dollars in income tax, which means it registered a net profit of 513 million dollars for the first half of the financial year. That sum represents an increase of 48.1 percent year-on-year.
