Still some concerns ahead of Playtech’s AGM

We are concerned about the salary increases during 2018 and the level of the annual bonus award given that shareholders have suffered a significant fall in share price during the year. As such we are voting against the Remuneration Report.
However, we note the company has made some improvements to the overall remuneration structure. For example, we are pleased that executives will be required to hold shares for two years after they vest. Therefore we are voting for the Remuneration Policy.
