Update on Kentucky legal proceedings

The Kentucky Supreme Court has today denied a petition made by Flutter for a rehearing of its 17 December 2020 decision relating to legal proceedings originally brought by the Commonwealth of Kentucky against certain subsidiaries of The Stars Group ("TSG") in 2010, prior to its combination with Flutter.

Flutter is disappointed by the denial of its rehearing petition and continues to strongly dispute the basis of this judgment. Together with its legal advisors, Flutter will continue to consider its position in relation to the judgment, including potentially appealing the ruling of the case to the US Supreme Court along with other legal avenues which it may pursue thereafter.

Flutter remains confident that any amount ultimately paid to resolve this matter will be a limited portion of the reinstated judgment. Further announcements will be made in due course as and when appropriate.
