Q4 SLOT SHIP SHARE

While we don’t have the Aristocrat Leisure Q4 figures (the Aussie’s don’t report quarters), all the other major players have reported. The chart below provides market share trends for the gaming suppliers. After 2 quarters of market share losses, WMS regained some of its lost share, coming in close to 20%, in-line with BYI’s share. BYI appeared to lose about 4 percentage points. BYI typically outperforms in the replacement market but Q4 contained a higher percentage of slots into new and expanded casinos. IGT lost a few percentage points but at 38%, its share remains well above the Q1 2008 low of 30%.
