NOTE 1. NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND RECENT DEVELOPMENTS
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 online casinos worldwide and to land-based casino gaming companies in North America, the Caribbean, Central America, the British Isles, Europe and Africa and to cruise ship companies. We license our products and services for use solely in legalized gaming markets.
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. Our Articles of Incorporation (the “Articles”) 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.
The consideration owed to Triangulum for the redemption is $39,096,401 (the “Redemption Consideration”). See Note 10.
There is ongoing litigation between the Company and Triangulum related to the redemption and other matters. See Note 11.
On February 25, 2020, Galaxy Gaming entered into a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement, dated February 25, 2020 (the “Purchase Agreement”), between the Company and the membership interest holders of Progressive Games Partners LLC (“PGP”). Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the Company will pay $12.425 million to acquire all of the issued equity interests of PGP. Of the consideration, at least $6.425 million, but no more than $10.425 million will be paid in cash, with the balance of the consideration being paid in newly issued shares of the Company’s common stock valued at $1.91 per share. Completion of the purchase is subject to various customary closing conditions, including but not limited to (i) further due diligence by Galaxy, (ii) any necessary gaming approvals having been obtained from the relevant gaming authorities, (iii) no material adverse effect or other specified adverse events occurring with respect to Galaxy or PGP, (iv) subject to certain exceptions, the accuracy of the representations and warranties of the parties, and (v) performance and compliance in all material respects with agreements and covenants contained in the Purchase Agreement.
COVID-19. On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared a pandemic related to the COVID-19 outbreak, which led to a global health emergency. The public-health impact of the outbreak continues to remain largely unknown and still evolving. The related health crisis could continue to adversely affect the global economy, resulting in continued economic downturn that could impact demand for our products.
On March 17, 2020, the Company announced that it suspended billing to customers who had closed their doors due to the COVID-19 outbreak. As a result, we did not earn revenue for the use of our games by our physical casino customers during the time that they were closed. In general, the online gaming customers who license our games through our distributor remained and continue to remain in operation in spite of the COVID-19 crisis. We earned revenue from them during the crisis and expect to continue to do so, but potentially at levels that may be lower than we previously received.
As of the date of this filing, many land-based casinos have begun to re-open with significantly reduced occupancy and other limitations. As they reopen, it will take additional time for their operations to return to pre-crisis levels. Given the uncertainties around casino re-openings, we instituted a phased billing approach for our clients through fiscal year 2020, which will result in us realizing substantially less revenue than we might otherwise expect. In addition, because of COVID-19-related financial pressures on our physical casino customers, there can be no assurance that our accounts receivable we will be paid timely (or at all) for revenues earned prior to the shutdowns. Finally, some of our casino clients have notified vendors (including us) that they will lengthen payment terms for a period of time after reopening as they attempt to preserve their own liquidity.
We also rely on third-party suppliers and manufacturers in China, many of whom were shut down or severely cut back production during the shutdown. Although this has not had a material effect on our supply chain, any future disruption of our suppliers and their contract manufacturers may impact our sales and operating results going forward.
Because of the uncertainties of COVID-19, the Company drew on its Revolving Loan in the amount of $1,000,000 on March 12, 2020. Also, on April 17, 2020, the Company obtained an unsecured loan of $835,300 through Zions Bancorporation, N.A. dba Nevada State Bank under the Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP Loan”) pursuant to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”) and the Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act (the “Flexibility Act”). See Note 10. As of the date of this filing, the Company believes that it has adequate liquidity to meet its near-term obligations. If the effects of the COVID-19 crisis endure or there is a second period of casino closures, we may be required to reassess our obligations, including our ability to pay employee compensation and benefits.
The COVID-19 crisis may change the behavior of gaming patrons. Most of our clients operate places of public accommodation, and their patrons may reduce visitation and play as a precaution. Further, governmental authorities may continue to impose reduced hours of operation or limit the capacity of such places of public accommodation. A long-term reduction in play could have a material adverse impact on our results of operations. Depending on the length and severity of any such adverse impact, we may fail to comply with our obligations, including covenants in our credit agreement, and we may need to reassess the carrying value of our assets.
