The two selling subsidiaries conduct IGT's proximity payment business. Services offered range from payments services including bill payments and prepaid payment cards to commercial services providing telco and e-vouchers top up and technological solutions including merchant and enterprise services.

The divesting business generated about 228 million euros in gross revenues and approximately 40 million euros in EBITDA in 2021.

In the deal, UBS AG is acting as lead financial advisor and fairness opinion provider to IGT, and UniCredit S.p.A. as financial advisor.
