A message from the Chairman and CEO

The 12 months to 30 September 2021 was a positive onlyear for Aristocrat, with results reflecting the ongoing robustness of our growth strategy, and a successful

recovery from COVID-19 driven disruptions.

A normalised Group profit result of $865 million for the 2021 fiscal year was 81% higher in reported terms and over 100% higher in constant currency than the corresponding 2020 result. Operating cash flow of over $1.3 billion was 30% higher than the prior corresponding period, and the Group's balance sheet was also further strengthened, with

useov r $2.7 billion in available liquidity as at 30 September 2021.

Throughout the year, Aristocrat continued to focus on delivering strong operational performance through outstanding product, people and capability. Across both of our global operating businesses, Aristocrat Gaming and Pixel United, we continued to invest to grow into adjacent segment, channel and genre opportunities, further adding to our earnings diversity and performance momentum. With 80% of Group revenues in the year derived from recurring sources, compared to around 50% just four years ago, our increasing operational diversity and resilience was also clear.

Aristocrat's market-leading commitment to game design, development and technology drove outstanding personaloperational performance across key Gaming segments in the 2021 fiscal year. We continued to strive to be a partner

of choice to our gaming customers, supporting their recovery with innovative and differentiated approaches to customer engagement.

The business took another important step forward with the rebranding of Aristocrat Digital to Pixel United, which was a ounced post period end. The new name better reflects the global scale and ambition of our mobile-first game publishing business, and will help to facilitate its growth going forward. Over the 2021 fiscal year, we strengthened the Pixel United product pipeline to sustain long-term growth ahead of category, including through the multiple tuck- in acquisitions announced during the year.

We also increased investment in Aristocrat's core business capability, to facilitate ongoing transformation in our cale and velocity.

A istocrat's recommended cash offer to acquire Playtech plc, announced shortly after the close of the 2021 fiscal year, is another demonstration of our appetite to accelerate the implementation of our strategy through accretive M&A, in particular where it can deliver new capabilities and access to significant growth opportunities. We believe the proposed acquisition of Playtech will advance Aristocrat's growth strategy and provide material scale in the already large and growing US$70 billion online Real Money Gaming segment.

Aristocrat and Playtech are working together to implement the recommended acquisition. We are focused on achieving necessary approvals, and continue to expect the acquisition to complete in the second quarter of calendar year 2022. We were delighted with the strong level of support for Aristocrat's ~$1.3 billion Entitlement Offer, the

Forp oceeds of which will be used to finance the proposed acquisition. The pro-rata entitlement offer was structured to pr vide equitable treatment for all Aristocrat shareholders, leading to strong take-up rates across both institutional and retail components.

Throughout the 2021 fiscal year, Aristocrat also continued to embed a 'People First' focus. A range of additional employee wellbeing and development initiatives were launched, and Aristocrat was gratified to achieve Great Places to Work certification for the first time in the US and Australia, and for the sixth time in India. A global employee engagement score of 8.4 was achieved for the year, which is a pleasing result and above the relevant technology industry benchmark.
