Flutter is pleased to announce the listing of the Company’s ordinary shares on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”).
Flutter also confirms that the cancellation of the secondary listing of the Company’s ordinary shares on Euronext Dublin took effect at 08.00 GMT yesterday. Flutter retains its premium listing on the London Stock Exchange (“LSE”) and its ordinary shares continue to trade on the Main Market of the LSE (ISIN: IE00BWT6H894).
Flutter’s shares will trade on the NYSE under the ticker symbol: “FLUT” (CUSIP No.: G3643J 108) and will trade on the LSE under its existing ticker symbol: “FLTR”.
Proposal to move primary listing to the NYSE
As outlined in February 2023, the Board believes listing on the NYSE will unlock long-term strategic and capital market benefits by:
- Enhancing the Group’s profile in the US
- Better enabling the recruitment and retention of US talent
- Giving the Group access to much deeper capital markets, and to new US domestic investors
- Providing greater overall liquidity in Flutter shares
- Giving optionality to pursue a primary listing in the US – one of the criteria for access to important US indices.
Since February 2023, management has engaged widely with US investors, existing and potential, along with existing shareholders globally. The feedback received has been very supportive of moving Flutter’s primary listing to the US.
As a result, the Board believes that the NYSE is now the optimal location for Flutter’s primary listing of its shares, and that the transition should be made as soon as practicable. This proposal will be put to shareholders as a Special Resolution at the 2024 AGM on 1 May 2024. Subject to shareholder approval, the transition is expected to become effective in late Q2/early Q3.
Following transition, the Board intends to retain Flutter’s UK listing as a secondary listing and believes this will ensure the greatest number of investors will be able to continue to hold Flutter shares and benefit from future value creation. Further details will be communicated in due course ahead of the AGM.
Peter Jackson, Chief Executive, commented:
“With our NYSE listing effective today, this is a pivotal moment for the Group as we make Flutter more accessible to US based investors and gain access to deeper capital markets. We believe a US primary listing is the natural home for Flutter given Fanduel’s #1 position in the US, a market which we expect to contribute the largest proportion of profits in the near future.“
Rob Gronkowski Returns for FanDuel’s 2024 Super Bowl “Kick of Destiny 2” Campaign
Flutter’s FanDuel – the number one online sportsbook in North America and Official Sports Betting Partner of the National Football League (NFL) – has announced that four-time Super Bowl Champion, Rob Gronkowski, is heading to Super Bowl LVIII for the sequel to last year’s “Kick of Destiny”.
FanDuel’s “Kick of Destiny 2” will see Gronkowski make his way to Las Vegas where he will attempt to successfully make a field goal in a live ad spot just before kick-off to the Super Bowl. FanDuel customers will be offered the opportunity to make a free pick on whether they think he will Make or Miss the kick through the FanDuel Sportsbook app, with eligible customers who pick correctly winning an equal share of $10,000,000 in bonus bets.
The launch of the integrated “Kick of Destiny 2” campaign just ahead of Flutter’s planned additional listing on the New York Stock Exchange this year, and will culminate in the biggest event for US sports betting in the form of the Super Bowl on 11th February. In 2023, Super Bowl LVII was the single biggest staking event across Flutter, with FanDuel customers staking $215 million on an epic final that saw the Kansas City Chiefs edge out the Philadelphia Eagles by 38-35.
Gronkowski said: “When I missed the Kick of Destiny during last year’s Super Bowl, it was devastating. I told the team at FanDuel I knew I could do better and needed a shot at redemption this year. I’m going to show America I can make that kick, even with all the pressure of doing it live in front of the entire country.”
“Last year’s Kick of Destiny campaign saw tremendous engagement from our customers as they were captivated with what would happen during our live Super Bowl commercial. With the introduction of the Make or Miss free pick function and Rob’s desire for redemption, this year will be even more exciting for FanDuel customers. Rob is an authentic embodiment of the FanDuel fan – passionate, entertaining, and trailblazing – and we’re ready to make history again,” said FanDuel Executive Vice President of Marketing, Andrew Sneyd.
