MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN AND CEO

Welcome to Aristocrat's 2018 Annual Report.

Aristocrat reported strong organic and inorganic performance over the 2018 fiscal year, delivering a record profit result and further extending the business' track record of high quality NPATA1 growth.

Group revenue increased 48% in reported terms and over 46% in constant currency to an all-time high of over $3.6 billion. Around two-thirds of total Group revenues derived from recurring sources in 2018, representing further progress in the Company's strategy to deliver sustained and sustainable performance over the long term.

This result reflected the positive operational performance delivered across the Group's global portfolio. Notable features of the result included further gains in the Americas and in Australian markets, together with transformational growth in Digital, where sustained organic growth was supported by the performance of our recently acquired businesses Plarium Global and Big Fish Games.

Over the course of the year, Aristocrat also continued to invest in its future with a significant increase in absolute Design & Development (D&D) spend, including around $100 million of additional investment in Digital. D&D remains Aristocrat's top investment priority, as it is a core growth enabler that helps the Company to defend and expand existing market positions while also ensuring it is positioned to unlock opportunities in priority adjacencies.

A robust balance sheet ensures Aristocrat can continue to promote shareholders' longer-term interests by investing for both organic and inorganic growth, wherever compelling, accretive opportunities are identified.

1. Net Profit After Tax and before Amortisation of Acquired Intangibles

Aristocrat's operational momentum, strong cash flows and capacity to continue to reduce gearing levels has allowed the Board to deliver another significant increase in earnings per share, consistent with our commitment to grow dividends over time.

The Board's orderly renewal process also continued over the course of the year, with the nomination of Mr Neil Chatfield to succeed Dr Ian Blackburne as Chairman of the Board of Aristocrat Leisure at the Group's Annual General Meeting in February 2019. Neil's nomination reflects his extensive experience as an Executive and Non-Executive Director of a number of large and complex Australian corporates, his particular experience as a Chairman, the significant contribution he has made since joining Aristocrat in 2017 and the esteem of his Board colleagues. We have every confidence that under Neil's leadership, and with the ongoing oversight of the Board, Aristocrat will continue its growth journey with confidence and focus.

In summary, fiscal year 2018 has been another highly successful and rewarding year for Aristocrat and its shareholders.

Thank you for your interest, and support.

Ian Blackburne ChairmanTrevor Croker

Chief Executive Officer & Managing Director
