Executive Comments

Gary A. Vecchiarelli, Galaxy's CFO commented, "We are pleased that our recurring revenue has increased in the second quarter. Growth continues to be the recurring theme, as we have now increased our recurring revenues 14 of the last 15 quarters. While we have incurred increased legal and regulatory costs recently, I anticipate resolution in both those areas will open up further revenue opportunities for the Company."

"The revenue increases reflect the improvements and strategies we implemented with our sales team who have benefited from the expansion and diversification of our product lines," stated Robert B. Saucier, Galaxy's CEO. "After a sluggish first quarter start, we expect that the changes made and represented in our second quarter results, will continue to produce stronger results going forward. I believe we will once again finish the year with record results, providing increased momentum as we enter 2016."

Mr. Saucier continued, "Those who monitor our balance sheet should recognize our commitment to long-term debt reduction. Cash generated from operations continues to reduce the principal balances of our debt approximately $1 Million each quarter. In summary, the Company is now healthier than ever as a result of increased operational performance combined with an improving balance sheet."

Financial Summary

Revenue. Total revenue for the second quarter increased 9% to $2,682,600, over the same quarter 2014. This increase is primarily due to additional placement of premium games and expansion into new territories. For the six months ended June 30, 2015 compared to the same period 2014, revenues increased 11% to 5,266,695. The increase for the six month period was primarily due to the increased focus on premium games and expansion into new territories. Between the second quarter 2015 and first quarter 2015, total revenues increased 4% to $2,682,600. These increases were due to an increase in activity in the United Kingdom and additional placements of premium and side bet games. The annualized recurring revenue run-rate as of June 30, 2015 is $10,709,536.

Total costs and expenses. Expenses for the second quarter 2015 increased 17% to $2,292,336, over the same quarter 2014. The increase in 2015 is primarily due to increases in selling, general & administrative expenses, driven by increased legal and compliance costs. Our professional and compliance expenses increased significantly due to ongoing litigation with competitors. In that amount, we also recognized increases due to the licensure process with California and Nevada. For the six month period ended June 30, 2015 compared to the same period 2014, total costs and expenses increased 21% to 4,485,925. This increase was also due to the increased legal and regulatory costs, combined with the fact 2015 represents a full six months at our new and larger headquarters location. Total costs and expenses increased in the second quarter 2015 compared to the first quarter 2015 by 5% to $2,292,336. These increases were primarily due to the additional professional and compliance expenses related to litigation and licensure. 

Net income. Net income for the second quarter 2015 was $71,573, which was a decrease of 35% from the same quarter 2014. The decrease was primarily due to the increases in selling, general & administrative expenses. For the six month period ended June 30, 2015 compared to the same period 2014, the net income decreased 48% to $134,432. The primary driver of this decrease was the increases in selling, general & administrative expenses. The net income in the second quarter 2015, increased 14% to $71,573 over the first quarter of 2015. This increase was the result of additional revenues between the quarters. 

Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure (described below), for the second quarter 2015 decreased 15% to $841,667, compared to the same quarter 2014. Higher selling, general & administrative expenses contributed to the decrease in Adjusted EBITDA between the periods. For the six month period ended June 30, 2015, Adjusted EBITDA decreased 14% to $1,692,819 compared to the same period ended 2014. This decrease was primarily due to lower net income as a result of the increased selling, general & administrative expenses. Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter 2015 increased 2% to $841,667 compared to the first quarter in 2015. This increase was due to growth in recurring revenues between the quarters.

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.
