Gary A. Vecchiarelli, Galaxy's CFO stated, "The first quarter has historically been the period we see the lowest revenue growth rates of the year. While several factors contributed to our first decrease of recurring revenues in the last three years, we are not concerned it will have impact on future quarters. Our adjusted EBITDA and fundamentals of the business remains strong and we expect a strong 2015."
"Clearly, our first quarter results do not match the high standards and expectations we have set for ourselves," commented Robert B. Saucier, Galaxy's CEO. "However, we do not consider this a setback, as a number of great developments did occur in the quarter which provide us with optimism that indeed 2015 will be another record year for Galaxy. We are totally focused on obtaining that goal."
Revenue. Total revenue for the first quarter increased 14% to $2,584,093, over the same quarter 2014. This increase is primarily due to additional placement of premium games and expansion into new territories. Between the first quarter 2015 and fourth quarter 2014, total revenues decreased 1%. The decrease was due to several ancillary factors including, but not limited to lower utilization of products in the United Kingdom, unfavorable foreign exchange rates and a realignment of the sales team operations. The annualized recurring revenue run-rate as of March 31, 2015 is $10,313,240.
Total costs and expenses. Expenses for the first quarter 2015 increased 26% to $2,193,585, over the same quarter 2014. The increase in 2015 is primarily due to increases in selling, general & administrative expenses, which was due to several reasons. Foremost, compensation and related expenses increased due to salaries, wages and payroll taxes related to expanded staff. Our professional and compliance expenses increased significantly due to ongoing litigation with competitors. Office related expenses increased due to the moving our corporate headquarters in April 2014, which is four times larger than our previous location. Total costs and expenses decreased in the first quarter 2015 compared to the fourth quarter 2014 by 26%. This decrease is due to the fact that in the fourth quarter, we recognized a non-cash impairment of intangible assets and increases in share-based compensation due to a year end stock bonus granted to certain employees.
Net income. Net income for the first quarter 2015 was $62,859, which was a decrease of 58% from the same quarter 2014. The decrease was primarily due to the increases in selling, general & administrative expenses. The net income in the first quarter 2015, was reversed from a net loss of $326,083 in the fourth quarter of 2014. This increase was primarily driven by the fact that the fourth quarter recognized a non-cash impairment of intangible assets and increases in share-based compensation due to a year end stock bonus granted to certain employees.
Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure (described below), for the first quarter 2015 decreased 15% to $828,744, compared to the first quarter 2014. Higher selling, general & administrative expenses contributed to the decrease in Adjusted EBITDA between the periods. Between the first quarter 2015 and fourth quarter 2014, Adjusted EBITDA decreased 4%, due to increased selling, general & administrative expenses.
Use of Non-GAAP Measures
Galaxy Gaming, Inc. (the "Company") prepares its consolidated financial statements in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). In addition to disclosing financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP, the Company discloses information regarding Adjusted EBITDA, which differs from the term EBITDA as it is commonly used. In addition to adjusting net income (loss) from continuing operations to exclude taxes, interest, and depreciation and amortization, Adjusted EBITDA also excludes noncash charges, certain non-recurring charges and share-based compensation expense. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of performance defined in accordance with GAAP. However, Adjusted EBITDA is used internally in planning and evaluating the Company's operating performance. Accordingly, management believes that disclosure of this metric offers investors, bankers and other stakeholders an additional view of the Company's operations that, when coupled with the GAAP results, provides a more complete understanding of the Company's financial results.
Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net loss or to net cash used in operating activities as a measure of operating results or of liquidity. It may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies, and it excludes financial information that some may consider important in evaluating the Company's performance. A reconciliation of GAAP net loss from continuing operations to Adjusted EBITDA is included in the accompanying financial schedules.
