Flutter to Begin Trading on NYSE amid Plans for Primary US Listing

The company's shares will begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange under ticker symbol FLUT

The leading gaming and entertainment company, Flutter Entertainment, announced that its ordinary shares on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) will begin trading at 9:30 ET today. Ahead of the planned NYSE listing, last week, the company revealed its plans to exit the Dublin Stock Exchange.

The exit coincides with the listing on NYSE with Flutter confirming that its ordinary shares on Euronext Dublin will cease trading as of 8:00 GMT today. At the same time, the company confirmed that its shares will continue trading on the London Stock Exchange (LSE).

Currently, Flutter’s shares on the LSE trade under the existing ticker “FLTR.” On the other hand, once the company’s shares start trading on the NYSE, they will be using the ticker symbol “FLUT.”

The start of trading on NYSE represents an important moment for Flutter as it anticipates its transition to primary US listing. Ultimately, the listing is expected to generate long-term benefits for the company that will contribute toward its growth in the country.

Flutter’s chief executive, Peter Jackson, highlighted the importance of the NYSE listing for the company, adding that it will deliver long-term benefits. Finally, he pointed out: “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.”

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.

Transition to Primary US Listing to Unlock Benefits

In February last year, Flutter acknowledged the potential of a strategic NYSE listing. At the time, the company evaluated that the listing would help grow its US profile and boost the retention and recruitment of US talent. Additionally, the listing would grant Flutter access to new US domestic investors and deeper capital markets. Another significant benefit of the NYSE listing is that Flutter will be able to access different US indices by pursuing a primary listing in the US.

The company indicated strong support for the proposed move after discussions with existing shareholders and US investors. Consequently, Flutter’s Board identified that a transition to NYSE as a primary listing is an “optimal location” for its shares. The aforementioned topic will be up for discussion at the company’s upcoming 2024 AGM scheduled to take place on May 1, 2024. If the transition receives approval of Flutter’s shareholders, it is expected to come into effect in either late Q2 or early Q3 2024.
