Light & Wonder CEO announces streamlined business growth plans

Gaming provider Light & Wonder’s newly-appointed President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Matt Wilson announced his goals for a streamlined business to achieve further growth. 

The announcement follows the company’s latest quarter (Q3) findings – from July to September 2022.

With Light & Wonder now operating across gaming, igaming and social gaming, Wilson said this new approach will allow the group to advance in the next quarter and beyond. 

“Our strategy is in place, and we are taking share with our robust R&D engine and best-in-class talent,” Wilson said. 

Light & Wonder’s CEO added that “our strong balance sheet and operational momentum gives us the ability to leverage our leading industry position, evergreen franchises and unmatched platforms that drive sustainable growth and significant value.”

Wilson further explained that all this fosters “a high-performance culture and making disciplined investments in [the] future while maintaining a laser focus on operations and execution will underpin our success.”

Light & Wonder’s iGaming revenue during 2022’s Q3 also went up, this time by 9.4% ($58 million). 

While spending $559 million on operating costs (10.7% higher than 2021), a further $65 million on net financial expenditure were spent by the games provider.
