    2011 Consolidated Financial Statements

    Net Revenues

    The Group’s net revenues in 2011 were EUR 5,113 million, an increase of EUR 796 million (or 18%) on the previous year. A breakdown of these figures is shown in the table below.

     

    EBITDA

    The Group recorded EBITDA of EUR 1,100 million for the year ending 31 December 2011, a rise of EUR 224 million (+26%) compared with the previous year. This breaks down as follows:

     

    ORDINARY EBIT

    The Group’s ordinary EBIT for the year ending 31 December 2011 was EUR 532 million, after taking into account depreciation/amortisation and other ordinary non-cash items totalling EUR 518 million and losses from investments valued at equity totalling EUR 50 million.

    The EUR 104 million improvement in ordinary EBIT 2011 compared to the figure for 2010 mainly reflects the improvement at EBITDA level, which was partially offset by higher depreciation/amortisation charges and other non-monetary items totalling EUR 79 million and lower profits from investments valued at equity to the tune of EUR 41 million.

     

    Consolidated net loss

    The table below shows the relationship between ORDINARY EBIT and consolidated net loss:

    ORDINARY EBT for 2011 showed a positive figure of EUR 359 million, compared with a positive figure of EUR 186million in 2010, after taking into account net financial income of EUR -173 million (EUR 2542 million in 2010).

    Non-ordinary items, which are included in the NON-ORDINARY EBT figure, totalled charges of EUR 199 million in 2011, compared with charges of EUR 632 million in 2010. Note in particular the following items recorded in 2011:

    • - Impairment of Assicurazioni Generali totalling EUR -91 million. This impairment figure reflects the adjustment to the carrying value of Assicurazioni Generali shares held by the Group to the closing price on 31 December 2011 (EUR 11.63 per share), an adjustment made to take account of the stock market performance of the shares, as well as based on the criteria set out in IAS/IFRS accounting standards
    • - Other impairment charges of EUR 91 million, of which EUR 28 million relates to UniCredit CASHES shares and EUR 15 million to the Group’s investment in Stepstone/Blue Skye
    • - Other one-off charges of EUR 17 million (EUR 73 million in 2010, of which EUR 56 million relates to costs associated with the refinancing of the Lottomatica Group).

    At 31 December 2011, Group and minorities’ shareholders’ equity totalled EUR 3,864 million (versus EUR 3,618 million at end-2010); Group shareholders’ equity was EUR 2,226 million (EUR 2,169 million at 31 December 2010), while minority interests accounted for EUR 1,638 million (EUR 1,449 million at 31 December 2010).

    The increase of EUR 57 million in the Group’s shareholders’ equity in 2011 was due to:

    • - net profit of EUR 16 million for 2011
    • - dividend payouts of EUR 15 million
    • - the fair value adjustment of available-for-sale assets of EUR -17 million
    • - the impact of the exchange rate differences arising on the conversion of the financial statements of the Group’s foreign subsidiaries that have a functional currency other than the euro, totalling EUR +57 million
    • - other changes +1 million Euro.

     

    Shareholders' equity relating to minority interests increased by EUR 189 million, mainly due to:

    • - net profit of EUR 84 million for 2011
    • - dividend payouts of EUR 42 million
    • - the recognition of IDeA FIMIT SGR minorities’ shareholders’ equity totalling EUR 134 million

    Net Revenues

    The group’s net revenues in 2010 were EUR 4,318 million, an increase of EUR 164 million (or 4%) on the previous year. A breakdown of these figures is shown in the table below.

    The Publishing business posted net revenues of EUR 1,326 million, a fall of EUR 57 million (or around 4.1%) compared with 2009, which mainly affected the Partworks and Books business areas.

    Net revenues of the Media & Communication business came in at EUR 642 million, an increase of EUR 82 million compared with 2009 (around 14.6%), due mainly to the effect of consolidating RDF Media from the date of acquisition (1 August 2010).

    The Gaming & Services business posted net revenues of EUR 2,314 million, up by EUR 137 million (6.3%) compared with 2009. Growth was chiefly due to the increase in revenues from gaming machines in Italy following the launch of the new VLTs and in the number of AWPs installed (EUR 94 million), and to the positive fluctuation in exchange rates against the euro in the GTECH Lotteries business (EUR 59 million).

    Lastly, net revenues for the Financial Investments business rose by EUR 3 million versus 2009, totalling EUR 37 million for the year. This was mainly due to commission relating to alternative asset management received by the FARE Holding Group.

     

    EBITDA

    The group recorded EBITDA of EUR 876 million for the year ending 31 December 2010, a rise of EUR 75 million (+9%) compared with the previous year. This breaks down as follows:

    The group’s ORDINARY EBIT for the year ending 31 December 2010 was EUR 428 million, after taking into account depreciation/amortisation and other ordinary non-cash items totalling EUR 439 million.

    The improvement of EUR 73 million in the ORDINARY EBIT figure for 2010 compared with 2009 broadly reflects the improvement at EBITDA level.

     

    Consolidated net loss

    The table below shows the relationship between ORDINARY EBIT and consolidated net loss:

    ORDINARY EBT for 2010 showed a positive figure of EUR 186 million, compared with a positive figure of EUR 152 million in 2009, after taking into account net financial income of EUR -242 million (EUR -203 million in 2009).

    Non-ordinary items, which are included in the NON-ORDINARY EBT figure, totalled charges of EUR 632 million in 2010, compared with charges of EUR -300 million in 2009.

    The decrease of EUR -142 million in the group’s shareholders’ equity in 2010 was due to: net loss of EUR 560 million for 2010; the impact of the adjustment to the fair value of available-for-sale assets, totalling EUR 237 million, largely attributable to the complete transfer to the income statement of the negative fair value reserve recorded on the investment in Assicurazioni Generali at 31 December 2009; the impact of the exchange rate differences arising on the conversion of the financial statements of the group’s foreign totalling EUR +122 million.

    Shareholders' equity relating to minority interests increased by EUR 466 million, mainly due to: net profit of EUR 9 million for 2010; capital increases, net of the associated costs, totalling EUR 464 million, relating in particular to the amount paid by the minority shareholders of Lotterie Nazionali for the new scratch card licence, and the capital increase reserved for the minority shareholders of RDF Media in connection with the roll-over of their shares in Zodiak Media; the impact of the exchange rate differences arising on the conversion of the financial statements of the group’s foreign subsidiaries, totalling EUR 70 million.
