Aristocrat Claims Woes Are Over

24 February 2004

AUSTRALIA – As reported by the Sydney Morning Herald: "Shares of Aristocrat Leisure rocketed nearly 20 per cent yesterday as the poker machine maker promised the worst of its troubles were behind it - despite halving its dividend and reporting a $106 million (US$82.69 million) loss for the year ending December 31.

"'The company has taken the necessary steps to ensure that the problems encountered through the year will not be repeated,' chief executive-designate Paul Oneile said.

" But the company faced questions over the announced retirement last week of Aristocrat chief operating officer David Creary, after revealing yesterday that it gave him a payout totalling $1.76 million.
