Aristocrat delivers strong profit growth in FY2015

Aristocrat Leisure Limited announced for the full year ended 30 September 2015 the company’s revenue grew nearly 90 percent year-on-year to A$1.58 billion from A$839 in the period the year before.

Aristocrat’s total segment revenue increased 64.7 percent in constant currency, while EBITDA increased over 100 percent in constant currency and more than 138 percent in reported terms compared to the prior corresponding period. 

The company says its performance was driven by the successful acquisition and integration of the VGT Class II gaming operations business, together with sustained improvement in operational performance. 

“In particular, positive momentum in North American gaming operations across both Class III and Class II segments, outstanding growth in the Australian outright sales market and strong performance in Digital contributed to the result.”

The directors have authorised a final dividend for the six months ended September 30 of 9 cents per share resulting in total dividends for the full year of 17.0 cents per share. 

CEO and managing director Jamie Odell said: “Over the course of the year, the business continued to focus on the things within our control, namely broadening and deepening our core portfolio, improving front-end effectiveness, investing in outstanding talent and entrenching a high performance culture. Our strengthening operational performance delivered market-leading share growth and stronger returns across key segments during the period.”
