NOTE 1. NATURE OF OPERATIONS
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, acquisition, assembly, marketing and licensing 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 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 United Kingdom, Europe and Africa as well as to cruise ship companies. We license our products and services for use solely in legalized gaming markets. We also license our content and distribute content from other companies to iGaming operators throughout the world.
Share Redemption. 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 Obligation”). See Note 10.
There is ongoing litigation between the Company and Triangulum related to the redemption and other matters. See Note 11.
Membership Interest Purchase Agreement. On August 21, 2020, the Company completed the acquisition of 100% of the member interests in Progressive Games Partners LLC (“PGP”). The entirety of the purchase price ($10,414,528) and transaction-related costs ($127,586) were allocated to customer relationships and are included in Other intangible assets, net, on the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheets. The cash portion of the purchase price was $6,425,000, and the balance of the purchase price was satisfied through the issuance of 3,141,361 shares of the Company’s common stock with a value of $1.27 per share on the date of the acquisition. The shares issued are being held in escrow pending the performance of the assets acquired during the twelve months following the acquisition. See Note 7 to our audited financial statements included in Item 8 “Financial Statements and Supplementary Financial Information” of our Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on March 31, 2021 (the “2020 10-K”) for further details. The Company also acquired certain receivables and payables in the net amount of $581,885, which was to be remitted to the sellers of PGP as the receivables and payables were settled. In May 2021, the balance owed to the sellers of PGP was settled in full.
Management determined that, for accounting purposes, the PGP transaction did not meet the definition of a business combination and, therefore, was accounted for as an asset acquisition.
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.
Given the uncertainties around casino re-openings, we instituted a phased billing approach for our clients through fiscal year 2020, which resulted 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 will be paid timely for revenues earned prior to the shutdowns. Finally, the Company was notified by some of the land-based casinos that they would be extending their payment terms.
The phased billing approach for our physical casino customers instituted in 2020 is no longer in effect. Physical casino customers who are now open are being billed at pre-COVID billing levels. Similar to 2020, our online gaming customers continue to generate revenue in 2021.
We also rely on third-party suppliers and manufacturers in China, many of whom were shut down or severely cut back production during some portion of 2020. 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. Pursuant to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”), the Federal Reserve created the Main Street Priority Loan Program (“MSPLP”) to provide financing for small and medium-sized businesses. On October 26, 2020, the Company borrowed $4,000,000 from Zions Bancorporation N.A., dba Nevada State Bank under this program. See Note 10.
Disruptions of the COVID-19 crisis continue to impact our results of operations. A significant portion of the Company’s land-based customers have reopened at limited capacity after the restrictions due to the COVID-19 crisis were lifted. However, some customers have been required to close again due to local regulations and conditions, and some customers will remain closed through the remainder of 2021.
