IGT’s longstanding technology partner, HCL, nominated Aurora for several reasons, citing that it is a versatile modern architecture and an advanced end-to-end lottery solution with user interfaces that work on any browser or device; is cost effective; and delivers a faster speed-to-market, among many other benefits.

Beauparlant has worked in the government-sponsored lottery and gaming industry for over 30 years and currently leads a team of more than 200 engineers, spanning all engineering disciplines, in IGT’s Lottery & Core Platforms Division.

“This award further validates IGT’s leadership in the global lottery and gaming market where government-sponsored gaming is at the intersection of gaming, politics, and social responsibility,” said Beauparlant. “It also provides affirmation of our Aurora product strategy in helping to modernize the clients we serve. I thank HCL for their nomination and for their longstanding relationship as a valued strategic partner with IGT; Matthew Whalen, CTO Lottery and Core Platforms, for his vision and support; and the whole Aurora team for their hard work and dedication and without whom this recognition would not be possible.”

More than 200 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.

“The nominations submitted for the 2018 American Business Awards were outstanding. The competition was intense, and those recognized as Stevie Award winners should be immensely proud of this accomplishment,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.

600 IGT EMPLOYEES PARTICIPATE WORLDWIDE IN COMPANY’S INAUGURAL GLOBAL GIVING WEEK, VOLUNTEERING OVER 4,100 HOURS

PROVIDENCE, RI – June 25, 2018 – IGT employees from around the world volunteered with various charities and non-profit organizations as part of IGT’s inaugural “Global Giving Week – A Day For Doing,” which was held May 6-12, 2018. During this set week, employees were provided with an additional paid workday off to volunteer at a non-profit of their choice. Many employees dedicated their time to prepare meals for the homeless, work with shelter animals, assist the elderly, clean up parks, among other activities to help those in need.


“This was IGT’s first Global Giving Week, and we were proud to see so many employees around the world literally roll up their sleeves and do their part to make their communities a better place,” said Angela Wiczek, IGT Vice President of Corporate Communications. “It was a rewarding, yet very humbling, experience for many of our employees. Some locations were so inspired that they are planning a second day of service in their communities over the summer.”


More than 600 IGT employees participated worldwide, including those in all parts of the U.S., as well as in the U.K., Canada, Italy, China, Australia, Czech Republic, Barbados, St Marteen, Trinidad & Tobago, and Spain. In total, employees volunteered over 4,100 hours.


“Given the success of this inaugural year, we are planning to make Global Giving Week an annual event,” said Wiczek.


IGT is also making a donation to Mercer County Parks System in New Jersey for having the largest, single IGT team volunteer during Global Giving Week, with a total of 28 volunteers who helped to clean up litter at the playground, picnic areas, and all around Mercer Lake.


The Company offers three employee-giving programs and encourages all employees to give back to their local communities through IGT’s Day Off For Volunteerism, Matching Gifts, and Dollars For Doers.

IGT Announces Tender Offer For Certain Of Its 4.125 Percent Senior Secured Notes Due 2020 And 4.750 Percent Senior Secured Notes Due 2020


LONDON, June 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- International Game Technology PLC (NYSE:IGT) ("IGT") today announced an invitation to holders (each a "Holder" and collectively, the "Holders") of each series of the outstanding (i) €700,000,000 4.125% Senior Secured Notes due 2020 represented by the Regulation S global note (the "4.125% Notes") (ISIN: XS1204431867) and (ii) €500,000,000 4.750% Senior Secured Notes due 2020, which were issued with an initial coupon of 3.500% (the "4.750% Notes" and, together with the 4.125% Notes, the "Notes" and each series of Notes, a "Series") (ISIN XS0860855930) issued by IGT to tender their Notes for purchase by IGT for cash (the "Offer") on the terms and subject to the conditions set out in the offer to purchase dated June 18, 2018 (the "Offer to Purchase") prepared in connection with the Offer, and is subject to the offer and distribution restrictions set out below. Capitalized terms used herein but not defined have the meanings given to them in the Offer to Purchase.  For the avoidance of doubt, with respect to the 4.125% Notes, the Offer is only being made for such 4.125% Notes which are represented by the Regulation S global note (ISIN: XS1204431867).

The tender offer consideration for each €1,000 principal amount of the 4.125% Notes accepted for purchase pursuant to the Offer will be €1,050 (the "4.125% Notes Tender Offer Consideration"). The tender offer consideration for each €1,000 principal amount of the 4.750% Notes accepted for purchase pursuant to the Offer will be €1,070 (the "4.750% Notes Tender Offer Consideration", and together with the "4.125% Notes Tender Offer Consideration", the "Tender Offer Consideration").   

All Holders of purchased Notes will also receive, in addition to the Tender Offer Consideration, a cash amount in euro equal to the accrued and unpaid interest on the applicable Notes, from, and including, the immediately preceding interest payment date up to, but excluding, the date of payment for the tendered Notes, which, subject to satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase, shall occur promptly following the Expiration Date (as defined below) (the "Settlement Date") (such cash amount, "Accrued Interest").

IGT hereby also announces that to take advantage of the current market conditions it intends to launch a new offering of euro notes (the "New Notes Offering"). The purpose of the Offer and the New Notes Offering is to extend the weighted average maturity of IGT's debt.      

Subject to the terms and conditions set out in the Offer to Purchase, IGT intends to purchase an aggregate principal amount of Notes (if any) validly tendered for an aggregate Tender Offer Consideration with respect to such Notes across both Series up to an amount equal to the gross proceeds from the New Notes Offering. However, IGT reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to accept an aggregate principal amount of Notes (if any) validly tendered for an aggregate Tender Offer Consideration that is significantly more or significantly less than the New Notes Proceeds and, in the event that any Accrued Interest, costs, fees or expenses are subsequently designated by IGT to be paid with the New Notes Proceeds, this would reduce by such amount the Tender Offer Consideration available to be paid and consequently the aggregate principal amount of Notes accepted for purchase (the final aggregate principal amount of Notes accepted for purchase pursuant to the Offer being the "Final Acceptance Amount").    

The Offer is subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase, including among other things, IGT (in its sole discretion) being satisfied that it has received, or will receive, by the Settlement Date, an amount of gross proceeds from the New Notes Offering which would be sufficient to finance the payment by IGT of the aggregate Tender Offer Consideration with respect to all Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Offer to Purchase (the "Financing Condition"). IGT may waive the Financing Condition in whole or in part.

Key Terms of the Offer

Subject to the terms and conditions set out in the Offer to Purchase, IGT intends to purchase Notes validly tendered for the applicable Tender Offer Consideration, subject to the Final Acceptance Amount.

IGT reserves the right, in its sole discretion and subject to any applicable law, to terminate the Offer with respect to one Series and not terminate the Offer with respect to the other Series. IGT also reserves the right, in its sole discretion and subject to any applicable law, to decide the aggregate principal amount of the Notes of each Series to be purchased pursuant to the Offer subject to the Final Acceptance Amount. Such amount may not be equal to, or pro rata with, the aggregate principal amount of the Notes of the other Series which IGT determines to purchase pursuant to the Offer. If the purchase of all Notes of a Series validly tendered at or prior to the Expiration Date would cause the aggregate principal amount of the Notes of such Series purchased to exceed the aggregate principal amount of the Notes of such Series IGT decides to purchase in the Offer, then the Offer will be oversubscribed as to such Series. If the Offer is oversubscribed as to a Series, then IGT will purchase validly tendered Notes of such Series on a pro rata basis. As a result, Holders may be left with a portion of their Notes even if they tender all of their Notes. 

IGT will accept Notes for purchase only in minimum denominations of €100,000 and integral multiples of €1,000 in excess thereof (in the case of the 4.125% Notes) and €100,000 (in the case of the 4.750% Notes). No alternative, conditional or contingent tenders will be accepted. In the event of proration, IGT will only purchase validly tendered Notes of a Series to the extent such proration would not (i) result in IGT purchasing less than €100,000 in aggregate principal amount of Notes of such Series validly tendered by a Holder or (ii) leave a Holder with less than €100,000 in aggregate principal amount of Notes of such Series in which case such tender of Notes will be rounded down or up such that either (a) an amount equal to the relevant minimum denomination of the relevant Series of Notes or (b) no amount of Notes would be required to be returned to the relevant Holders. In the event of proration, IGT will determine each Proration Factor as soon as practicable after the Expiration Date.

The Offer begins on June 18, 2018 (the "Launch Date") and expires at 4:00 p.m., London time, on June 25, 2018 (the "Expiration Date"), unless the period for the Offer is extended or reopened or the Offer is amended or terminated. The relevant deadline set by any intermediary or a Clearing System will be earlier than this deadline. In order to participate in, and be eligible to receive the relevant Tender Offer Consideration and the Accrued Interest pursuant to the Offer, Holders must validly tender their Notes by delivering, or arranging to have delivered on their behalf, a valid Electronic Instruction that is received by Lucid Issuer Services Limited (the "Tender and Information Agent") by the Expiration Date. IGT expects to announce (i) the amount of Notes validly tendered for each Series and, subject to satisfaction of the General Conditions and the Financing Condition, the amount of Notes accepted for each Series and each Proration Factor (if any) and (ii) the Final Acceptance Amount, on June 26, 2018, unless the Offer is extended. The expected date for payment of the Tender Offer Consideration and Accrued Interest for the Notes accepted for purchase and settlement of such purchases is expected to be June 28, 2018.  

Subject to applicable laws and regulations and as provided in the Offer to Purchase, IGT may, in its sole and absolute discretion, extend, re-open, amend or terminate the Offer at any time before the Expiration Date and may, in its sole and absolute discretion, waive any of the conditions to the Offer. Details of any such extension, re-opening, amendment, waiver or termination will be announced as provided in the Offer to Purchase as soon as reasonably practicable after the relevant decision is made.

IGT will promptly announce the Final Acceptance Amount by issuing a news release. If Holders tender more Notes in the Offer than they expect to be accepted for purchase by IGT and IGT subsequently accepts for purchase more than expected by such Holder, such Holders will not be able to revoke any of their previously tendered Notes. Accordingly, Holders should not tender any Notes that they do not wish to be accepted for purchase.

IGT Champions Inclusion Across the Gaming Industry as a Founding Member of All-in Diversity Project

LONDON, U.K. – Feb. 20, 2018 – IGT (NYSE:IGT) has committed to enhancing diversity and inclusion across the gaming industry by partnering with the All-in Diversity Project as a founding member and participant in the project’s inaugural year.

The All-in Diversity Project is an industry-driven, not-for-profit initiative that aims to benchmark diversity, equality, and inclusion across the global gaming and betting sectors. Its goal is to measure data and support an open and objective discussion about diversity across the entire industry worldwide.

The project will provide a year-on-year progress update; highlight successes, challenges and opportunities; and make best-practice recommendations on diversity and inclusion (D&I) topics for the gaming industry, such as corporate governance, internal policies, recruitment practices, equal pay, employment legislation, unconscious bias, and marketing.

“The gaming industry is unique and requires its own benchmarking in order to yield the most reliable and applicable data,” said Kim Barker Lee, IGT Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion. “We need an open discussion on industry-specific barriers to inclusion and diversity, and offer opportunities to improve. Understanding where we are today will inform what we need to do to move the bar and make a lasting impact.”

“We sit as the industry’s first and only organization working to help the industry as a collective in terms of D&I,” said Kelly Kehn, Co-Founder of the All-in Diversity Project. “We established All-in Diversity Project, but this initiative should be led by the industry. IGT’s commitment to diversity and inclusion will help serve as a shining example to the industry globally as to leadership on progress toward workplace equality.”

“Gender diversity is not about pushing quotas or agendas,” said fellow All-in Diversity Project Co-Founder Christina Thakor-Rankin: “The All-in Diversity Project is about acknowledging that the expectations and aspirations of the next generation of employees and customers are very different to ours, and we need to make changes now in order to prosper in the future.”

IGT and Florida Officials Cut Ribbon Operationalizing Instant Ticket Printing Press to Increase Company Footprint in the State

New TRESU Press Goes Live at IGT’s Lakeland, Florida Facility

 

LONDON, U.K. – Feb. 20, 2018 – International Game Technology PLC (“IGT”) (NYSE:IGT) has completed a $15 million expansion to accommodate a new, state-ofthe-art instant ticket press at its facility in Lakeland, Florida. The addition of approximately 45,000 square feet allows space for a new instant ticket TRESU press, extra production area, a new shipping and receiving area, secure office space, and secured finish goods storage.

Since the facility first opened in 2009, employment has grown by 112%, representing $11.7 million in annual payroll wages. The expansion is expected to increase full-time employment by an additional 24% by the end of 2021.

“This state-of-the-art facility is part of the economic engine for Lakeland,” said U.S. Congressman Dennis Ross. “This facility benefits both employees and local businesses alike. From construction jobs to expand the facility to IGT using a number of local vendors ensuring the plant is kept up-and-running, the local economy is benefiting from IGT’s investment in Florida, and the Lakeland community.”

“Today is about a strong partnership we’ve developed with the Lakeland Economic Development Council (LEDC),” said IGT COO, Lottery, Jay Gendron. “Working together with the LEDC, IGT has developed relationships with Lakeland businesses and contractors, and we’ve created several new jobs as part of our expansion project. The substantial investment we are making now is a true indication of IGT’s commitment to Lakeland in the years to come.”

The new servo-controlled TRESU press is now operational and will increase IGT’s printing capacity by approximately 30%. The TRESU is the newest in the industry, incorporating the latest advancements in flexography technology, and complements IGT’s current servo-controlled Gallus press, which also utilizes flexography technology.

“The new TRESU press is very important to our printing business and allows us to service our lottery customers in a greater capacity,” continued Mr. Gendron. “The TRESU will complement and expand our current production capabilities, scheduling flexibility, and capacity. In fact, the addition of this second press actually increases production capacity in the overall industry, something that has not been done in more than 13 years.”

While a Management score indicates that a company is taking coordinated action on climate change issues, a Leadership score shows that a company has implemented current best practices.

"This recognition, in addition to our improved score, demonstrates IGT's commitment to continuous improvement, and is especially significant given that CDP has made its requirements more stringent," said Robert K. Vincent, IGT Executive Vice President, Administrative Services and External Relations. "At the same time that we're celebrating this achievement, we are continuing to seek more ways to reduce emissions and energy consumption across our global business."

In its application, IGT demonstrated that:

  • It increased its environmental data reporting due to an internal web-based tool, which provides a more comprehensive overview of the Company's environmental impacts;
  • It significantly reduced its emissions; and
  • It maintained its Environmental Management Systems in accordance with the ISO 14001 global standard.
IGT's approach to environmental activities is guided by the following principles:

  • Regularly assessing goals for improving environmental performance;
  • Following operating guidelines that protect the environment, employees' health and safety, and the communities in which the Company operates;
  • Complying with current regulations;
  • Ongoing improvement of pollution prevention;
  • Reducing the environmental impact of production processes in an economically effective way;
  • Providing employees with the resources they need to achieve established environmental goals; and
  • Reporting on the environmental impact of its business performance in a transparent manner.
CDP is an independent, non-profit organization that manages a global disclosure system for companies to manage their environmental impacts, and for investors to access environmental information for use in financial decisions. According to the CDP, disclosure has never been more important, and action starts with transparency. IGT voluntarily participates in the program.

Solutions such as the IGT Dynasty electronic table games (ETG) terminals, with the addition of new content and screen configurations, offer a clear demonstration of IGT's commitment to advancement in emerging market segments.

IGT's CrystalCurve cabinet has been central to the Company's Proven Performer program, which requires extensive product testing in casino environments throughout North America. Games that successfully emerge inspire operator confidence backed by research.

Successful core video graduates of the Proven Performer program on the CrystalCurve cabinet featured at G2E include the Wild Fury Jackpotsgame, a vibrant, five-level jackpot game; the Ocean Magic Grand game, a new take on the player-favorite Ocean Magic theme that introduces a 2X2 Super Bubble feature.

IGT's legacy of innovation has often included solutions that are unveiled for the first time at G2E. The CrystalCurve TRUE 4D cabinet brings innovative technologies such as mid-air haptics to casino gaming prior to it being commercially available in the consumer electronics space.

At G2E, IGT customers will have the opportunity to explore the capabilities of TournXtreme tournaments, experience the seamless transition from coin-in mode to tournament mode, and learn more about IGT's "Spin-Cation™" event.

Slot enthusiasts can appreciate the classic feel of time-tested favorites that enhance play experiences with new features. The CrystalDual® + Stepper cabinet offers the best of both worlds with titles such as Dubble Bubble® Slots, Super Bankroll Bonus® Slots, and Jin Long 888. All three games afford players a classic, mechanical reel base game that is complemented by engaging bonus events that transpire in the cabinet's 40-inch LCD top box.

Mobile technology provides an area of casino gaming where IGT stands apart for introducing innovative solutions that, in addition to winning multiple awards, have now been brought to market. The award-winning Cardless Connect technology, now implemented at properties in Nevada and California, expands to include Resort Wallet capabilities, for cashless access to funds. The Company will also spotlight the PlaySpot app's modular design and demonstrate recently developed functionality that gives players the option to wager on live roulette and baccarat games, keno, sports and more from their mobile devices while at a casino. IGT's PlaySpot solution integrates with many of IGT's other casino solutions such as Cardless Connect and IGT Advantage® systems, Live Connect, and IGT Dynasty.

Mobile casino management systems solutions that enhance casino operations by enabling faster customer service while reducing machine down time include Mobile Host and Mobile Responder. In addition to these mobile solutions on display at G2E, a robust suite of IGT Advantage systems bonuses will exemplify how operators can streamline operations, drive revenue, and cultivate world-class casino-patron relationships. IGT will also highlight how its location-based marketing technology can be coupled with other IGT systems solutions to maximize ROI and deliver personalized marketing messages.

IGT innovation often takes on large proportions. With the MEGATOWER™ cabinet, which stands at more than 11-feet tall, G2E attendees can experience industry-favorite Wheel of Fortune® themes such as Wheel of Fortune® Gold SpinTM Triple Gold®, and Wheel of Fortune® Triple Double Diamond®.

Continuing the large-format evolution and building on the success of the S3000 cabinet, the S3000 XL cabinet will feature popular mechanical reel themes such as IGT's Pinball®Triple Gold, and Red Hot 21 Double Diamond® games at G2E.

Video Poker meets large format with the introduction of the Video Poker XL cabinet. The upright hardware melds design elements from IGT's S3000 XL cabinet with the time-tested IGT video poker player panel. IGT will showcase the Wheel Poker® and 100 Play games on the Video Poker XL cabinet at G2E.

Bolstered by its significant leadership in the Video Poker space, IGT has expanded the offering within its player-favorite Game King game family with Game King® 8.3 with roulette, which adds video roulette games to its bar top and upright cabinet content bundles. IGT will also introduce a myriad of new multi-hand video poker game concepts such as the Haywire® PokerFace Card Frenzy Poker™Stack the Deck Poker™, and Double Big Wheel™ games.

The interactive space has become synonymous with innovation. IGT's interactive portfolio will be anchored in its PlaySpot mobile gaming solution and complemented by new game content and exciting technology application demonstrations.
