Playtika to Initiate a Dividend Scheme

The software supplier of social casinos indicated that the company will implement a dividend program for shareholders starting in 2024. The scheme will see the company issuing a quarterly dividend of $0.10 per share to its investors. This scheme is subject to approval by the board of directors and if market conditions allow.

Leadership at Playtika has outlined the business has set aside between $600 million and $1.2 billion to invest in mergers and acquisitions in the next three years.

With the introduction of our new capital allocation framework, we’re taking a multi-faceted approach to maximize shareholder value: initiating quarterly dividends to return capital to shareholders and earmarking $600 million to $1.2 billion for M&A over the next three years. We believe that we are well-positioned to lead consolidation in the mobile gaming industry.
