Playtech Board Chairman Brian Mattingley deemed FY 2023 a success saying:

“I am pleased to be writing to you after another successful year for Playtech. The Company has built on the strong strategic and operational progress of recent years and continues to cement its leadership across both B2B and B2C…While there were many challenges in 2023, the consistent quality at the core of our business meant that we were able to upgrade our expectations during the year and deliver a strong financial performance.”

In addition to positive adjusted revenue and EBITDA, Playtech (LSE: PTEC) noted its female representation among its leadership team grew from 26% in 2022 to 30% in 2023. The company aims to reach 35% female leadership representation by 2025.
