SciPlay: The Story Ends Just As It Was Getting Started
SciPlay looks set to be acquired by parent company Scientific Games in an all-stock deal only two years after its IPO. The implied valuation seems underwhelming relative to peers and comparable transactions. However, considering its voting power and the fact that the deal makes good strategic sense for Scientific Games, I see the deal going through. With markets pricing in a slight premium to the 0.25 exchange ratio, there is an opportunity to capture the spread into the year-end close.
