New York Debut for Flutter

Flutter Entertainment plc has transitioned its primary stock listing to the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). This change follows the company’s switch from a “Premium Listing (commercial company)” to a “Standard Listing (shares)” on the Financial Conduct Authority’s Official List. Despite this move, Flutter’s shares will still be available on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange under the Standard Listing category.

CEO’s Insight on the Move

CEO Peter Jackson highlighted this shift as a significant milestone for Flutter. “Today marks an important milestone in the evolution of Flutter with the commencement of our primary listing on the New York Stock Exchange,” Jackson said. This follows the relocation of Flutter’s operational headquarters to New York, underlining the importance of the US sports betting and iGaming market, where FanDuel leads.

The decision to shift the primary listing to the US involved extensive investor consultations since February 2023. The process began with an additional listing on the NYSE on January 29, 2024, and culminated in shareholders approving a special resolution on May 1, 2024. This resolution finalized the transfer from a Premium to a Standard Listing on the London Stock Exchange, making the NYSE Flutter’s primary listing.

Global Market Leader

Flutter Entertainment is a global leader in online sports betting and iGaming, with a strong presence in markets including the US. The company aims to revolutionize the industry through scale and innovation, driving long-term growth and sustainability. Flutter’s portfolio includes top brands like FanDuel, Sky Betting & Gaming, Sportsbet, PokerStars, Paddy Power, Sisal, Tombola, Betfair, MaxBet, Junglee Games, and Adjarabet.

CFO Transition

Alongside this listing change, Flutter announced that Group CFO Paul Edgecliffe-Johnson will step down immediately. Rob Coldrake, Flutter International’s CFO since 2020, will take over. Edgecliffe-Johnson’s departure aligns with Flutter’s strategy to bolster its executive management presence in the US. The company thanked him for his efforts in the US primary listing process and wished him well.

Flutter’s board is confident in Rob Coldrake’s appointment as the new Group CFO and praises his contributions and leadership. This executive change signifies Flutter’s commitment to growth and collaboration as it navigates the competitive landscape of sports betting and iGaming.

Flutter Entertainment’s move to the NYSE and the leadership change highlight its strategic focus on expanding its presence in the lucrative US market, aiming for sustainable growth in the evolving gambling industry.
