Executive Comments

“We got off to a good start for 2022,” said Todd Cravens, President and CEO. “Even though some our high-end customers in London remain affected by worldwide travel disruptions, we had record gross revenues of $6.7 million in the quarter. In the land-based sector, our new baccarat games are being well-received. Our iGaming business continues to grow, with iGaming gross revenues of $2.8 million in Q1, an increase of 58% from Q1 2021 and 35% from Q4 2021. In both the land-based and iGaming sectors, we have new games and other products that will be launched later this year, and we’re optimistic that operators and players will support them.”

We paid down $0.3 million in debt and added $1.2mm to cash in the quarter,” said Harry Hagerty, the Company’s CFO. “We expect to continue to build cash over the course of the year to keep net leverage as low as possible. Total Net Leverage is the only financial covenant in our Fortress loan, and we were comfortably in compliance with that covenant at quarter-end.”

Hagerty added,With respect to fiscal 2022, we are increasing our guidance for revenue (net of iGaming royalties) from a range of $23.5 to $25.0 million to a range of $24.0 to $25.0 million, and we are increasing the guidance for Adjusted EBITDA from a range of $11.5 to $12.5 million to a range of $11.8 to $12.5 million. This forecast assumes no new lockdowns from COVID-19, no impact to our business from the war in Ukraine, and no economic recession. Finally, the forecast is based on currency exchange rates that we experienced in the first quarter.”

Non-GAAP Financial Information

Adjusted EBITDA includes adjustments to net loss/income to exclude interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, share based compensation, gain/loss on extinguishment of debt, foreign currency exchange gains/losses, change in estimated fair value of interest rate swap liability and severance and other expenses related to litigation. Gross revenue adds back royalty expense paid to owners of intellectual property re-licensed to our iGaming clients. Neither Gross Revenue or Adjusted EBITDA is a measure of performance defined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). However, Gross Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA are used by management to evaluate our operating performance. Management believes that disclosure of the Gross Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA allows investors, regulators and other stakeholders to view of our operations in the way management does. Gross Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income or to net cash provided by operating activities as a measure of operating results or of liquidity. Finally, Gross Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.
