In 2013 INTRALOT managed to deliver a strong set of financial results across the board and we are very proud of this. As the CEO of the Group I would like to comment on the future for which we have redefined our key priorities and I would like to focus on our recent internal corporate reorganization, which was performed with the assistance of The Boston Consulting Group.
After many years of enduring success and strong global growth, we have decided to consolidate the company's global operations, products and services and technology, in order to create a more flexible and effective structure.
INTRALOT Group is now organized in four distinct divisions: Global Operations & Sales, Products & Services, Technology and Finance. The new organizational structure focuses on operational excellence, creating synergies between the Headquarters and the Group subsidiaries, while promoting innovation across the company, integrating technology and products and services. Our aim is to meet the needs of our customers, increase shareholder value, create robust financial results, and economies of scale, as we will become more innovative and also capitalize on our existing Global infrastructure and presence.
INTRALOT, being present in 57 jurisdictions and with 84 contracts in its portfolio, is very well placed to capitalize on its existing projects, both in terms of introducing new technologies and new games as well as in terms of obtaining additional contracts. Operating in an industry that constantly evolves, with many opportunities and challenges arising from the business, technological and regulatory changes, we are best positioned to benefit and extract maximum value for our stakeholders. I am confident that the new participatory management structure will bring INTRALOT Group to a new path of growth and success.“
