The health crisis linked to Covid-19 does not spare any sector. La Française des Jeux (FdJ) announced on Friday 12 February a drop in stakes of 7% in 2020. It explains this observation by months of closure of certain points of sale. The losses of the FdJ were however limited thanks to a “good activity in the second half of the year”.
Stakes in 2020 amounted to 16 billion euros, a drop a little more accentuated than expected by the FdJ, which expected -6%, while the turnover amounted to 1.9 billion euros. FdJ’s annual net profit finally came out at 214 million euros, also slightly above expectations.
“At the start of 2021, even if uncertainties persist, FdJ remains confident in its prospects for sustainable growth”, she adds in a press release. Forecasts will be announced “as soon as possible”. The board of directors of FdJ will propose to the general meeting of June 16, 2021 a dividend of 80% of the net income, in accordance with the commitments made during the IPO.
