The group has maintained investing in game design, development and technology in this period, which allowed it to grow share in both core segments and with its diversified portfolio of games and products.
The report mentioned several operational highlights including the continued growth and diversification of the group’s portfolio over the 12 months to September 2021.
In terms of plans for the full year to September 2022, the group is focused on enhancing its market positions in gaming operations, growth in floor share across key gaming outright sales markets globally, further growth in Pixel United bookings, continued investment in design and development to drive long-term growth (with investment likely to be above the historic range of 11-12% of revenue); and further investments in core business capability, which aims to facilitate the ongoing transformation in scale and velocity.
Aristocrat CEO and Managing Director, Trevor Croker, said: “The results and momentum we’ve delivered this year demonstrates the successful execution of our growth strategy.
"We continued to take share and deliver above-category organic growth over the year through sustained investment in outstanding products, people and capability, and further strengthening our business fundamentals.
"Our progress is reflected in the share growth and margin expansion achieved across key segments during the year, with games and products and further diversification across our Aristocrat Gaming and Pixel United portfolios.”
Croker also mentioned the three major awards Aristocrat won at the Global Gaming Awards, including Land-Based Industry Supplier of the Year.
