"As can be deciphered from our recently reported financial numbers, we established a solid beginning for 2012 to be a banner year for Galaxy Gaming," stated Robert Saucier, the Company's Chief Executive Officer. "We more than doubled our revenue and produced a number of other record gains in the first quarter. In fact, we improved in all areas except for our net profit, which was impacted by expenses related to our acquisitions in the last quarter, increased legal and accounting expenses, stock-based compensation paid to certain employees and an increase in sales commissions, which we view as an excellent indicator of future revenue growth.
Mr. Saucier continued, "Although last year's acquisitions were significant factors in contributing to these results, the improvements over the immediately preceding quarter portrays a strong indication that our internal organic sales efforts are also paying off. A portion of our first quarter improvement was the direct result of an order by Caesar's Entertainment for their Las Vegas Strip properties. However, since these properties came on line throughout the first three months, the impact of this order will likely not be fully recognized until the second quarter. In addition to Caesar's, we posted a solid quarter of other new orders, which likewise should have a positive impact on our continued quest to build our recurring revenue."
1- On our financial statements reported to the SEC, Gross Profit is reported as "Gross revenues less costs of ancillary products and assembled components."
The Company's executives will host an investor conference call to discuss its financial and operating results.
