Scientific Games completes acquisition of NYX

5 January 2018

Scientific Games has today (Friday) completed its acquisition of NYX Gaming Group in a deal worth around CAD$775m (€519.6m/US$626.5m).

In September, Scientific Games announced it had agreed terms on to merge with NYX and create a “global digital gaming and lottery powerhouse”.

Last month, Scientific Games shareholders unanimously voted to approve the deal, after which the company presented the tally of the shareholders votes in order to gain approval from the Royal Court of Guernsey.

In connection with today’s completion of the acquisition, NYX ordinary shares are set to be delisted from the TSX Venture Exchange on or before the close of business on January 10.

Kevin Sheehan, chief executive of Scientific Games, said: “Today, Scientific Games moves forward as a leading digital provider of sports betting, igaming and ilottery technologies, platforms, content, products and services.

“As we look to 2018, we are truly excited by the opportunities that this acquisition presents to us.”
