Both B2B and B2C divisions of Playtech are driving its performance in the current months, the company stressed.

“The excellent start to the year gives the Board great confidence in the prospects for FY 2022,” Playtech stated.

However, it pointed out that the board is 'cautious and focused' as the numbers are only for an early stage of the year. In addition, it mentioned the uncertainty of the macro backdrop due to the pandemic and the war in Ukraine.

“The Board is also conscious there cannot be any certainty that the strength across the business so far will be repeated throughout the remainder of the year. That said, the Company's performance to date and current trends in the business positions the Company very well,” Playtech added.

Acquisition Talks

Meanwhile, Playtech is in the middle of acquisition talks with TTB Partners. Also. the company revealed that there has been some positive progress in the discussions with the investor group regarding the acquisition offer, but it does not confirm the deal closure.
