This acquisition would enable FDJ to accelerate the development of its "Payment and Services" business, in line with its 2025 strategic plan. FDJ thus confirms its commitment to support the development and modernisation of its retail distribution network by offering value-added services. The completion of this transaction is subject to the usual suspensive conditions, including approval by the French Competition Authority. READ FULL PR
