Global gaming machine manufacturer Aristocrat Leisure is acquiring Roxor Gaming, a leading B2B online real money gaming supplier and a subsidiary of the privately held London-based Anzo Group, for an undisclosed amount.
Aristocrat will fund the transaction from existing cash, and the transaction is not expected to have a material earnings impact.
The acquisition is expected to complete in the first quarter of the calendar year 2023, subject to regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions, the press statement read.
As part of the transaction, Aristocrat will also acquire Roxor’s two in-house game development studios, bringing further online RMG-specific technical and product development talent to the Group.
Roxor has over 100 employees, primarily based in the United Kingdom, along with a deep affiliate network with extensive online RMG experience.
Roxor’s Remote Game Server (RGS) and publishing technology will accelerate the delivery of Aristocrat’s strategy to grow and scale in online RMG.
Roxor’s technology is live in the US and UK markets and is innovative, highly scalable, and supports efficient and feature-rich games and game development.
Noel Hayden, Executive Chairman, Roxor Gaming Board, comments: “I am delighted to see this deal signed as I feel it brings together two great companies that complement each other perfectly. Roxor holds a very important place in my heart as the team and the games we have built, have delivered so much to so many over the last twenty years. I couldn’t be more excited for Roxor Gaming and the road ahead.”
Mitchell Bowen, CEO, Online RMG, Aristocrat, states: “Roxor is a great fit for Aristocrat, and this acquisition is another step forward in Aristocrat’s strategy to scale in online RMG. We look forward to growing together with the talented Roxor team.”
Josh Morris, General Manager, Roxor Gaming, expresses: “This deal has happened at the perfect time for Roxor Gaming as we look to expand and grow through new partnerships in the US and UK markets. Aristocrat has a huge heritage of global success and I feel that the combination of Roxor and Aristocrat brings a significant opportunity to build the most entertaining and widely adopted iGaming solution in the market.”
