Gaming supplier International Game Technology Plc. and Paradise Entertainment Ltd., through their respective subsidiaries, have signed an agreement under which Paradise will transfer all of its electronic table game technology, patents and other intellectual property to IGT, with certain exceptions for table game IP used exclusively in Macau.
IGT will pay Paradise an up-front fee plus an ongoing earn-out based on placement of products utilizing Paradise IP over a 15-year term. Closing of the agreement is subject to Paradise obtaining requisite shareholders’ consents and approvals.
The agreement gives IGT exclusive rights to Paradise’s table game IP for the development, manufacturing and distribution of live and RNG-based electronic table games worldwide, except in Macau, where Paradise subsidiary LT Game will remain the exclusive provider of its market-leading electronic table game products.
