Commenting on 1Q11 results INTRALOT Group CEO, Mr. Constantinos Antonopoulos, stated: “We are satisfied that we managed to grow our sales and EBITDA during the 1Q of 2011. Moreover, in our FY 2010 results announcement we stressed that from 2011 and onwards we would focus on the improvement of the company’s cash-flow. I am very pleased to say that we have accomplished this already in our 1Q 2011 results, as net debt decreased marginally despite a front loaded quarter in terms of CAPEX. We believe that in the next three quarters of 2011 the improvement will be even greater.
These results are attributed, among other factors, to the steps that we took last year, in order to improve our operations and better exploit our assets. 
 

In the short- and mid-term we will focus on innovation, the exploitation of our existing projects, the liberalization of selected markets, the privatization of lotteries, and the continued improvement of our cash flow generation, so as to increase our shareholders’ value.”
