International Game Technology

IGT Plc is the result of a merger between GTK and legacy IGT in 1Q15 and is headquartered in London. The company is a leading global provider of lottery, technologies, and management services. IGT's business is broken into four segments: North American Gaming & Interactive (23.4% of FY17 revenue), North American Lottery (24%), International (18%), and Italy (34.5%). The acquisition opened the legacy IGT business to social gaming, complemented its interactive wagering segment, and launched its gaming machine division to be the number one provider. IGT's lottery business requires the company to bid for concessions in various jurisdictions. IGT is the leader of a consortium that won the bid for the Italian Lottery. The consortium recently agreed to pay €800mn for a nine-year extension. (03 Oct 2018)
