June 1, 2024 | Financial

May 31, 2024- Allwyn International a.s. (the “Company” or “Allwyn”), a leading multi-national lottery operator, today announced the successful syndication of a new seven year-USD 450 million term loan B facility, with Allwyn Entertainment Financing (US) LLC as borrower, under a new senior facility agreement.

The new facility will bear interest at SOFR plus 225 bps. It will rank pari passu with the existing debt of Allwyn and Allwyn Entertainment Financing (UK) Plc, under the existing intercreditor agreement.

The proceeds from the new facility will be used to redeem the €400,000,000 senior secured floating rate notes due 2028 issued by Allwyn Entertainment Financing (UK) Plc and for general corporate purposes.

Kenneth Morton, Allwyn CFO, commented:

“I am very pleased by the strong level of support for our debut transaction in the USD institutional term loan B market. This follows our debut USD bond issuance in 2023 and further diversifies our access to capital, as well as extending our maturity profile and optimising our cost of funds.

The transaction is a further testament to the strength of the Allwyn credit – as demonstrated by our continued strong financial performance – and our consistent delivery on our organic and inorganic growth strategies.”
