AGS Logo (PRNewsfoto/AGS)

"Results in the second quarter were mixed, with 2% year-over-year growth in both total and recurring revenue offset by a slight decrease in Adjusted EBITDA.  The decrease was related to increased operating expenses as we continue to invest in strategic areas of our business, particularly in R&D, to capitalize on the vast whitespace in front of us," said David Lopez, President and Chief Executive Officer. "With our many upcoming product launches, including the Orion UprightSM and three new slot innovations which we'll showcase at G2E, we remain confident in the many opportunities for sustainable growth in the back half of 2019 and beyond."

Second Quarter 2019 Financial Highlights

  • Total revenue increased 2% to $74.5 million, driven by record gaming operations revenue, or recurring revenue, from increases in our EGM and Table Products segments, as well EGM sales revenue.
  • Gaming operations revenue, or recurring revenue, grew to $53.6 million, or 2% year-over-year, driven by EGMs purchased from Integrity Gaming Corp. ("Integrity"), growth of our international installed base, and an increase in Table Products revenue.
  • EGM sold units increased 12% to 1,181 compared to 1,058 in the prior year, led by sales of the Orion PortraitSM and Orion SlantSM cabinets in markets such as Florida, Alabama, California, Nevada, and Mexico.
  • Table Products revenue increased 35% to $2.4 million, driven by increased progressive table game and side bet placements.
  • Net loss of $7.6 million was up year-over-year from a net loss of $5.3 million. Net loss includes an impairment of goodwill of $3.5 million and an impairment of intangible assets of $1.3 million related to our real money gaming business ("iGaming") within our Interactive segment.
  • Total Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP)(1) decreased 2% to $35.7 million, driven by increased EGM-related headcount costs in SG&A and R&D, increased EGM service costs of $0.5 million associated with a larger installed base, and a $0.2 million increased loss in Interactive Adjusted EBITDA.
  • Total Adjusted EBITDA margin (non-GAAP)(1) decreased to 48% in the second quarter of 2019 compared to 50% in the prior year, driven by increased headcount related and service costs mentioned above.

EGM Highlights

  • Domestic EGM installed base grew by 1,774 units year-over-year, driven by the acquisition of 2,500 EGMs from Integrity. The prior year installed base included approximately 500 EGMs at one customer in Texas which were predominantly redeployed internationally and 700 VLT units that were purchased in an end-of-lease buyout (420 in Q4 2018, 130 in Q1 2019, and 150 in Q2 2019).(3)
  • Domestic EGM revenue per day ("RPD") decreased to $26.16 compared to $27.79 in the prior year period. When we normalize for the impact of EGMs purchased from Integrity, we estimate that domestic RPD was $27.45. The remaining decrease is due to a number of factors in Oklahoma, including: (1) product underperformance at three Oklahoma properties which largely accounted for the decrease in RPD, (2) the placement of approximately 800 incremental units into Oklahoma over the past year, which as a market yields a lower RPD than our domestic average, and (3) flooding that resulted in several casino closings.
  • EGM equipment sales revenue increased 3% to $20.8 million, driven by international sales. Domestic sales included 1,053 domestic units, of which nearly 70% were sold into early-entry markets such as Nevada, Canada, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
  • Domestic average sales price ("ASP") for EGMs decreased 3% to $18,178 due to sales to a large customer in the quarter.
  • International gaming operations revenue increased 4% year-over-year due to the addition of 720 incremental units placed with both existing and new customers, predominantly in Mexico.
  • International RPD decreased by $0.58, or 7%, as we grew our installed base in different markets in Mexico and to a lesser extent the effect of foreign currency.
  • Orion PortraitSM footprint(4) increased to more than 6,700 units, up 95% year-over-year and accounted for 55% of sales in the quarter.
  • Orion SlantSM footprint(4) increased to 2,230 units, up 15% sequentially, and accounted for 21% of sales in the quarter with placements in several early-entry markets such as Wisconsin, Michigan, and Arizona, as well as ramping markets such as Florida and California, driven by placements of our Fa Cai Shu family of games.
  • ICONSM cabinet footprint(4) increased by 2,241 units year-over-year and 454 units sequentially to over 8,300 units, with more than 800 units placed in Mexico.

Table Products Highlights

  • Revenue increased $0.6 million, or 35%, due to an increase of 643 units year-over-year and 95 units sequentially, driven by the continued growth of our Super 4® progressive blackjack, Buster Blackjack® side bet, and our Criss Cross Poker™ premium game offering.
  • Installed base of table game progressives reached nearly 1,100 units, up 48% year-over-year, contributing to the 8% increase in average monthly lease price.
  • Installed base of side bets reached more than 2,000 units in the quarter.
  • Converted 100 competitor progressives to our own STAXProgressive system in the quarter, which helped drive the Adjusted EBITDA increase.
  • We expect that momentum and demand for our new Dex S™ card shuffler will continue to grow, with approximately 100 shufflers currently installed in several markets across the U.S.

Interactive Highlights

  • Social gaming revenue decreased $0.8 million as a result of strategically optimizing our user acquisition costs.
  • The decrease in Interactive Adjusted EBITDA is primarily due to increased iGaming operating cost. iGaming Adjusted EBITDA loss was $0.7 million in the current period.
  • We generated $0.2 million in revenue from iGaming in the current period.
  • Continued the launch of our proven land-based EGM content in the European RMG space this quarter with titles such as Jade Wins®, Longhorn Jackpots™, Fu Nan Fu Nu™, and our hit title Rakin' Bacon!®, the best performing AGS game offered in the quarter.
  • Our social white-label casino solution ConnexSysSM is currently live with five operators, and there are five additional deals signed and pending launch.
  • We now have more than 25 suppliers live across the iGaming platform with 13 new suppliers launched since Q1 2019.

Operating Expenses

SG&A expenses decreased $0.7 million year-over-year to $14.6 million in the second quarter of 2019, primarily due to a decrease of $2.2 million in professional fees related to costs associated with the acquisition and integration of Gameiom Technologies Limited ("Gameiom") and secondary offering costs in the prior year and decreased marketing costs of $0.3 million driven by strategically optimizing social gaming user acquisition costs. The decreases were offset by increases in stock-based compensation of $1.0 million and increased headcount related costs of $0.7 million.

R&D expenses increased $1.5 million year-over-year to $8.4 million in the second quarter of 2019 due to an increase of $0.6 million of stock-based compensation, $0.6 million in increased development costs, $0.4 million in increased headcount related costs partially due to the opening of our new design studios in Sydney, Australia and Reno, Nevada, and $0.2 million in increased costs associated with iGaming.

Balance Sheet Review

As of June 30, 2019, we had $18.0 million in cash and cash equivalents compared to $70.7 million at December 31, 2018. Total net debt, which is the principal amount of debt outstanding less cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2019, was approximately $518.4 million compared to $468.1 million at December 31, 2018. Net debt as of June 30, 2019 increased by $50.3 million compared to December 31, 2018, primarily driven by the acquisition of Integrity.  Our Adjusted Total Net Debt Leverage Ratio increased from 3.4 times at December 31, 2018, to 3.6 times at June 30, 2019, see Total Net Debt Leverage Ratio Reconciliation below.(5) Capital expenditures increased $2.0 million to $15.1 million in the second quarter, compared to $13.1 million in the prior year period, primarily due to increased placements fees.

2019 Outlook

Based on our year to date progress, we are revising our annual adjusted EBITDA guidance.  We now expect to generate total adjusted EBITDA of $145 - $150 million in 2019, representing growth of approximately 6% - 10% compared to the prior year period. The change is due to several factors, including: (1) decreased gaming operations revenue in our EGM segment, largely due to product underperformance in Oklahoma, (2) decreased gaming operations revenue in our Interactive segment caused by delayed entry into New Jersey, as well as select markets in Europe and Latin America, and (3) decreased sales revenue from our EGM segment due to anticipated softness from certain corporate customers.  We continue to expect 2019 capital expenditures to be in the range of $65 - $69 million, compared to $66.2 million in 2018, reflecting an expectation for an increase in our EGM installed base in existing markets.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To provide investors with additional information in connection with our results as determined by generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"), we disclose the following non-GAAP financial measures: total Adjusted EBITDA, total Adjusted EBITDA margin, total net debt leverage ratio, adjusted total net debt leverage ratio, and Free Cash Flow. These measures are not financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for net income, operating income, cash flows, or any other measure calculated in accordance with GAAP, and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Total Adjusted EBITDA

This press release and accompanying schedules provide certain information regarding Adjusted EBITDA, which is considered a non-GAAP financial measure under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

We believe that the presentation of total Adjusted EBITDA is appropriate to provide additional information to investors about certain material non-cash items that we do not expect to continue at the same level in the future, as well as other items we do not consider indicative of our ongoing operating performance. Further, we believe total Adjusted EBITDA provides a meaningful measure of operating profitability because we use it for evaluating our business performance, making budgeting decisions, and comparing our performance against that of other peer companies using similar measures. It also provides management and investors with additional information to estimate our value.

Total Adjusted EBITDA is not a presentation made in accordance with GAAP. Our use of the term total Adjusted EBITDA may vary from others in our industry. Total Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to operating income or net income. Total Adjusted EBITDA has important limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for the analysis of our results as reported under GAAP.

Our definition of total Adjusted EBITDA allows us to add back certain non-cash charges that are deducted in calculating net income and to deduct certain gains that are included in calculating net income. However, these expenses and gains vary greatly, and are difficult to predict. They can represent the effect of long-term strategies as opposed to short-term results. In addition, in the case of charges or expenses, these items can represent the reduction of cash that could be used for other corporate purposes. Due to these limitations, we rely primarily on our GAAP results, such as net loss, (loss) income from operations, EGM Adjusted EBITDA, Table Products Adjusted EBITDA or Interactive Adjusted EBITDA and use Total Adjusted EBITDA only supplementally.

The total Adjusted EBITDA discussion above is also applicable to its margin measure, which is calculated as total Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of Total Revenue.

The following table presents a reconciliation of total Adjusted EBITDA to net loss, which is the most comparable GAAP measure:

(9) Other non-cash charges are costs related to non-cash charges and losses on the disposition of assets, non-cash charges on capitalized installation and delivery, which primarily includes the costs to acquire contracts that are expensed over the estimated life of each contract and non-cash charges related to accretion of contract rights under development agreements.

(10) Legal and litigation expenses including settlement payments consist of payments to law firms and settlements for matters that are outside the normal course of business. These costs related to litigation and matters that were not significant individually.

(11) Acquisition and integration costs primarily relate to costs incurred after the purchase of businesses, such as the purchase of Gameiom and Integrity, to integrate operations and obtain costs synergies. Restructuring and severance costs primarily relate to costs incurred through the restructuring of the Company's operations from time to time and other employee severance costs recognized in the periods presented.

Free Cash Flow

This schedule provides certain information regarding Free Cash Flow, which is considered a non-GAAP financial measure under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

We define Free Cash Flow as net cash provided by operating activities less cash outlays related to capital expenditures and payments of in-kind interest related to the redemption of our HoldCo PIK notes. We define capital expenditures to include purchase of intangible assets, software development and other expenditures, and purchases of property and equipment. In arriving at Free Cash Flow, we subtract cash outlays related to capital expenditures from net cash provided by operating activities because they represent long-term investments that are required for normal business activities. As a result, subject to the limitations described below, Free Cash Flow is a useful measure of our cash available to repay debt and/or make other investments.

Free Cash Flow adjusts for cash items that are ultimately within management's discretion to direct, and therefore, may imply that there is less or more cash that is available than the most comparable GAAP measure. Free Cash Flow is not intended to represent residual cash flow for discretionary expenditures since debt repayment requirements and other non-discretionary expenditures are not deducted. These limitations are best addressed by using Free Cash Flow in combination with the GAAP cash flow numbers.

The following table presents a reconciliation of Free Cash Flow:
