Playtech’s largest shareholder offloads 12% stock in company

In an interesting new development in the world of iGaming, the Playtech’s largest shareholder - Brickington Trading Limited - has sold 12% of its stake in the company.

Teddy Sagi, who also happens to be the co-founder of the iGaming giant, shipped off 38.7 million ordinary shares at a price of 850 pence (999 €cents/1060 $cents) each.

After offloading 12% of its stake, Brickington will hold a further 21.6% in Playtech. However, Brickington will not sell any shares for the next 180 days.

The placing was conducted through an accelerated book built via UBS Limited, Canaccord Genuity Limited and Credit Suisse Securities (Europe) Limited.

On the other hand, Playtech successfully completed acquisition of 70% stake in technology firm Consolidated Financial Holdings.

Playtech has also stated that it will complete the complete takeover (remaining 30%) pursuant to put and call option arrangements.
