Organization Consolidation And Presentation Of Financial Statements [Abstract]  


Unless the context indicates otherwise, references to “Galaxy Gaming, Inc.,” “we,” “us,” “our,” or the “Company,” refer to Galaxy Gaming, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“Galaxy Gaming”).

We are an established global gaming company specializing in the design, development, assembly, marketing and acquisition of proprietary casino table games and associated technology, platforms and systems for the casino gaming industry. Casinos use our proprietary products and services to enhance their gaming floor operations and improve their profitability, productivity and security, as well as to offer popular cutting-edge gaming entertainment content and technology to their players.  We market our products and services to land-based and riverboat gaming companies located in North America, the Caribbean, Central America, the British Isles, Europe and Africa and to cruise ship companies and internet gaming sites worldwide.  


On March 14, 2019, we announced the completion of our previously disclosed strategic alternatives review. After a thorough evaluation of a range of strategic alternatives, including a sale of the Company, we have decided to continue our existing plan of product line and geographic expansions as an independent company.

On May 6, 2019, we redeemed all 23,271,667 shares of our common stock held by Triangulum Partners, LLC (“Triangulum”), an entity controlled by Robert B. Saucier, Galaxy Gaming's founder, and, prior to the redemption, the holder of a majority of our outstanding common stock. The redemption of Triangulum’s shares was given effect pursuant to our Articles of Incorporation (the “Articles”), which expressly provide that if certain events occur in relation to a stockholder that is required to undergo a gaming suitability review or similar investigative process, we have the option to purchase all or any part of such stockholder’s shares at a price per share that is equal to the average closing share price over the thirty calendar days preceding the purchase.  The average closing share price over the thirty calendar days preceding the redemption was $1.68 per share.

As consideration for the redemption, we issued a promissory note payable to Triangulum in the face amount of $39,096,401 (the “Triangulum Promissory Note”). See Note 10.


Furthermore, we filed a lawsuit on May 6, 2019 seeking (i) a declaratory judgment that we acted lawfully and in full compliance with the Articles when we redeemed the Triangulum shares and (ii) certain remedies for breach of fiduciary duty and breach of contract by Triangulum and its Managing Member, Mr. Saucier (the “Triangulum Lawsuit”).  The suit alleges that the redemption and the other relief sought by us are appropriate and in accordance with the Articles of Incorporation (Galaxy Gaming, Inc. v. Triangulum Partners, LLC, Robert B. Saucier, Clark County, Nevada district court (Case No. A-19-794293-B)).


The defendants to that lawsuit responded to the complaint, and Triangulum filed counterclaims based on a theory of wrongful redemption by us.  The defendants also filed a Motion for Preliminary Injunction seeking the redeemed shares be held in a constructive trust.  On July 11, 2019, the Court denied the defendants’ Motion for Preliminary Injunction and all related relief.  On September 6, 2019, Defendants appealed the denial of the Motion for Preliminary Injunction to the Nevada Supreme Court.  We will oppose the appeal, but a briefing schedule has not yet been set by the Supreme Court.  Separately, Triangulum filed amended counterclaims, which we moved to dismiss on a number of legal grounds. The Court denied the motion, stating that the amended complaint was sufficiently plead.  The Company will file a Petition for a Writ of Mandamus challenging the ruling. 


On October 18, 2019, Saucier also filed counterclaims centered similarly on a theory of wrongful redemption, and also claims that for breach of contract and quantum meruit, alleging Galaxy Gaming was obligated to pay Saucier his year-end bonuses, despite his resignation. We will file a timely response, disputing these claims.


Effective June 3, 2019, our Board of Directors (the “Board”) appointed Michael Gavin Isaacs as an independent director. Upon joining the Board, Mr. Isaacs entered into a Board of Directors Services Agreement pursuant to which, among other things, Mr. Isaacs shall receive 75,000 shares of our restricted common stock, which vest in three annual installments on each of the first three anniversary dates of the services agreement.  Mr. Isaacs shall also receive quarterly grants of 12,400 common shares (vesting immediately at grant date) for his continued service as a director and shall receive $42,000 in cash compensation annually, paid monthly in arrears.  As a non-employee director, he will be entitled to receive any other annual cash and equity compensation payable to our other non-employee directors from time to time.


On August 28, 2019, the Company held its Annual Shareholder meeting. The detailed results are available for review as previously reported on Form 8-K. The Company’s current Board of Directors were reelected to stand for the next period.
