Inspired acquired Sportech Lotteries for US$12.5 million on a cash free/debt free basis, subject to certain customary adjustments and up to US$2 millions of potential additional earnout consideration.“This acquisition accelerates our entry into the lottery business, where, as a management team, we have extensive collective experience and long-standing relationships," said Lorne Weil, Executive Chairman of Inspired.
