Commences debt repayment with significant paydown
LONDON, UK / ACCESSWIRE / March 2, 2020 / Gamesys Group plc (LSE:GYS) (the "Company"), a leading international online gaming operator, is pleased to announce a significant repayment of its current debt balance.
The Company has made the first paydown of £40 million towards its debt balances. The paydown represents more than 15% of the Company's outstanding GBP debt and is approximately 7% of total outstanding debt, including its EUR tranche.
Keith Laslop, Chief Financial Officer, said: "As we've stated previously, a key strategic goal for the Board is to have our long-term leverage ratio in-line with our peers, which is currently in the range of 1-2 times adjusted EBITDA. Our significant cash generation allows us to rapidly de-lever and today's paydown is an important first step in attaining that goal."
