Executive Comments

"Following the best first quarter in our history, we posted our best-ever quarterly results in the second quarter," said Galaxy Gaming CEO Robert Saucier. "The 9% increase in recurring revenues from last quarter marks our 11th consecutive quarterly increase overall. We continue to expand our product lines, increase our footprint into new markets, and solidify our market share in existing markets. All-in-all, not a bad combination for continued success. Our team is dedicated to keeping this momentum going."

Besides the record revenue, recurring growth and positive trends, Company executives discussed the ways they believe Galaxy Gaming may be well-positioned to take advantage of ongoing and favorable industry developments. In the wake of substantial consolidation among gaming manufacturers, Company executives pointed out the value of being the world's largest independent table game provider. In addition, executives touted the Company's substantial growth into new European jurisdictions in France, Monaco and the Czech Republic. Galaxy added that these international markets are expected to be followed by additional expansion into other key domestic and other international territories.

"We continue to improve on our past successes, as evidenced by our strong organic growth year-over-year and between the quarters," said Gary A. Vecchiarelli, Galaxy's CFO. "Our annual revenue run-rate as of June 30,2014 is approaching $10 million, which is the direct result of increased demand for our products from casino operators and players alike."

Mr. Vecchiarelli specifically addressed higher operating expenses, and described it as evidence of the Company's strategic direction and internal focus. "Significant portions of our higher operating expenses were devoted to important investments in our products and our people, including our relocation to a new corporate headquarters four times the size of our previous space. We are already realizing significant benefits and true advantages in terms of both physical space, production capacity and the ability to exhibit our products in the best ways."

Financial Summary

Revenue. Total revenue for the second quarter increased 27% to $2,462,529, over the same quarter 2013. Revenue also increased 23% to $4,727,340 for the six month period ended June 30, 2014 over the same period 2013. Between the first and second quarter 2014, total revenues increased 9%. These increases are primarily due to additional placement of premium games and expansion into new territories. The annualized revenue run-rate as of June 30, 2014 is $9,845,416. 

Operating expenses. Operating expenses for the second quarter 2014 increased 25% to $1,954,688, over the same quarter 2013. Operating expenses also increased 21% for the six month period ended June 30, 2014 over the same period 2013. The primary drivers of the increase relates to increases in selling, general & administrative expenses. The SG&A increase is generally due to higher sales commissions based on increased sales, an increase in overall employee headcount and non-cash increased stock compensation expense. Between the first and second quarter 2014, operating expenses increased 12%, which included additional expenses related to the move of our corporate headquarters.

Net income. Net income for the second quarter 2014 increased 28% to $109,377, over the same quarter 2013. Net income also increased 38% to $260,542 for the six month period ended June 30, 2014 over the same period 2013. The increase was primarily due to significant growth in recurring revenue. Net income decreased 28% between the first and second quarter 2014, to $109,377. This decrease was primarily due to higher SG&A and tax provision recognized in the second quarter.

EBITDAS. EBITDAS, a non-GAAP financial measure (described below), for the second quarter 2014 increased 25% to $987,061 over the second quarter 2013. EBITDAS also increased 38% to $1,966,559 for the six month period ended June 30, 2014. Higher recurring revenues contributed to most of the increase in EBITDAS between the periods. Between the first and second quarter 2014, EBITDAS only increased 1%, due to higher operating expenses.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Information

Cash provided by operations was $1,407,953 for the six months ended June 30, 2014 compared to $999,657 for the six months ended June, 30 2013. The improvement in cash provided by operating activities was primarily due to the significant increase in total revenues.

Cash used in financing activities was $1,369,495 for the six months ended June 30, 2014 compared to $1,135,014 for the six months ended June 30, 2013. The increase in cash used in financing activities was primarily due to the increase in contractual principal payments due on notes payable.

As of June 30, 2014, the Company's cash and cash equivalents totaled $434,607.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

Galaxy Gaming, Inc. 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 EBITDAS, 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, EBITDAS also excludes noncash charges, certain non-recurring charges and share-based compensation expense. EBITDA and EBITDAS are not measures of performance defined in accordance with GAAP. However, EBITDAS 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.

EBITDAS 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 EBITDAS is included in the accompanying financial schedules.
