Summary of 2021 Revenue Vs 2020 – An Impressive Rise

Overall, the company reeled in a total of € 1.2 billion (€1,205.4m) in 2021 giving the LSE-listed firm a 12% hike in revenue versus 2022 revenue figures in which the official figure reported was € 1.2 billion (€1,078.5m). There is an adjusted ‘Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization (EBITDA) of € 317.1 million. In comparison with 2020s EBITDA (€253.6 million), the increase is 25%. Overall, from a revenue perspective, 2021 has blown 2020 out of the water despite the pandemic.

Summary of 2021 Profits Vs 2020 – From Red to Black

As for profits, Playtech predictably outperformed its 2020 results during which the company reported considerable post-tax losses (- €73.1m) as the company has not yet received its full income. Adjusted figures reported last year took the company from red to black as the new 2020 figures accounted for an additional €100.4 million in revenue, bringing the ‘Adjusted post-tax profit’ up to 27.3 million. Much of those funds had already been accounted for in the 2021 H1 Playtech report, which mostly came from unfulfilled payments via Playtech’s Latin America business.

Furthermore, official figures show that the 2021 ‘Reported post-tax profit’ of € 686.7 million has been considerably reduced to € 127.6 million. Regardless of the reduced figures, the company still reports a significant increase in post-tax profits, which amount to a 366% increase versus 2021’s adjusted post-tax profits.

Summary of 2021 EPS Vs 2020 – Shareholders can Smile

Long-term shareholders in Playtech PLC (LSE: PTEC) have seen a huge increase in share prices dating back to Aristocrat’s interest in the company – a deal that subsequently fell through due to regulatory issues. The company shares moved up in October 2021 from 423 GBX to 678 GBX, giving shareholders a 60% increase in value. That increase contributed to the latest adjusted figures that show a 365% increase overall in EPS. 2021’s original ‘Reported diluted EPS’ in the latest Playtech financial report show 220.0 €c while the Adjusted diluted EPS is 40.9 €c versus the 2020s Adjusted diluted EPS of 8.8 €c.

Summary of Playtech’s Financial Reporting – Strong Americas Performance

In the summary, Playtech explains that its financial performance was ahead of expectations. The highlight of the PLC’s revenues came via its strong performances in the Americas regions, which includes its Michigan live casino studios, while live casino across the board has brought in additional revenue after opening 4 new live casino studios throughout 2021.

Thanks to the success in the Americas region, it helped to drive 11% overall B2B growth with €554.3 million reported in 2021 versus the 2020 figures, which were €494.8 million. Focusing on America’s growth, the region contributed €101.3 million to B2B revenue in 2021 up from €60.6 million in 2020, thus nailing a record 64% growth rate here.
