DraftKings Inc. has launched Flash Bet, a faster and easier way to engage in live betting and instant winnings, for Wimbeldon. This unique offering is the first of its kind and available only on the DraftKings Sportsbook. The product is currently exclusive to live tennis wagering as DraftKings remains dedicated to enhancing every moment on the court into an elevated fan experience.

Flash Bet will allow the customers to place live, in-game wagers quickly between points in a given match. Once bettors place their wagers via the Flash Bet tab on the mobile or online DraftKings Sportsbook, they will be able to view a timeline of their bet’s results and receive payouts seconds after the play is over.

“Live wagering is already widely popular today, but also represents a crucial part of the customer experience and engagement tomorrow. Short of playing on the court themselves, we are wholly invested in bringing our customers as close as possible to Wimbledon this year, while also giving them a taste of the lightning-quick innovations to come,” Jordan Mendell, Senior Vice President of Product Research and Development said.

Galaxy Gaming, Inc. (OTCQB: GLXZ), a developer and distributor of casino table games and enhanced systems, announced today its financial results for the fiscal quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2019.

Financial Highlights

Q3 2019 vs. Q3 2018

  • Revenue increased 12.5% to $5,372K
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 23.5% to $2,217K1
  • Net income per share (diluted) increased to $0.03 from $0.02

Nine Months 2019 vs. Nine Months 2018

  • Revenue increased 17.9% to $16,118K
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 32.9% to $6,654K2
  • Net income per share (diluted) increased to $0.07 from $0.02

Balance Sheet Changes (vs. December 31, 2018)

  • Cash increased 35.9% to $8,577K
  • Total debt (gross) increased 372.4% to $48,192K due to the May 2019 stock redemption
  • Stockholders’ deficit was $(28,379)K vs. stockholders’ equity of $7,457K due to the May 2019 stock redemption

Executive Comments

“We are pleased to continue delivering double-digit growth in both revenue and Adjusted EBITDA,” said Todd Cravens, Galaxy’s President and CEO. “The new licenses we have received and are pursuing should give us the opportunity to offer more of our products in underserved markets.  However, we do not expect to realize meaningful revenue from the new license opportunities until 2020.”

“The third quarter showed our ability to continue to execute,” stated Harry Hagerty, Galaxy’s CFO.  “We paid down $370K in debt and still added to the cash balance.  Most importantly, just after quarter’s end we were able to sign an amendment to our credit agreement with Nevada State Bank that restructured the leverage covenants to allow us to carry the debt incurred in the redemption transaction.  The new covenants will become effective for the December 31, 2019 quarter.  For the third quarter of 2019, we were solidly in compliance with the Free Cash Flow and Senior Leverage covenants and our non-compliance with the Total Leverage covenant was waived as a result of the amendment entered into in May 2019.”

Forward-Looking Statements

Certain statements in this release may constitute forward-looking statements, which involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Galaxy cautions readers that any forward-looking information is not a guarantee of future performance and that actual results could differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking information due to a number of factors, including those listed from time to time in reports that Galaxy files with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Clarification regarding the Control game sales revenue recognition

Digital Bros S.p.A. – the publishing partner of Remedy Entertainment Plc – released their first quarterly report of the financial year that started in July 2019. The report also covered the revenue recognition regarding sales of the Remedy-developed game Control, which was released on 27th August 2019. Digital Bros S.p.A. disclosed €17.7M of Control game sales recognition during 1.7.–30.9.2019. Also prior to this, Digital Bros S.p.A. had reported a revenue recognition of €9.5M during the financial year 1.7.2018–30.6.2019 based on the exclusive agreement regarding the distribution of Control’s PC version on Epic Games Store.

On May 3rd 2017, Remedy announced the signing of a publishing agreement with Digital Bros S.p.A. regarding the Control game, and disclosed Remedy to receive 45% of game sales net revenue. The revenue share is calculated from net sales, which takes into account deductions such as retail and marketing costs of the game. Once the game starts to sell and before paying the game developer, the publisher is typically allowed to deduct upfront specific costs, such as manufacturing and distribution costs of physical game copies as well as marketing costs.

Additionally, revenue recognition practices differ between Remedy and Digital Bros S.p.A., as Remedy reports based on FAS and Digital Bros S.p.A. reports based on IFRS. Therefore, the figures reported by the companies are not comparable. Based on the aforementioned reasons and especially during the early phases of the game’s sales, Control’s revenue recognition to Remedy takes place with a delay and no direct conclusions can be drawn as to the recognition of net sales share based on the figures reported by Digital Bros S.p.A.

Remedy is commenting this matter with a company announcement as publicly available reports regarding the estimates of Control game sales revenue recognition do not – for the reasons described above – reflect the actual amount or timing of the 45 % net sales revenue to be recognised by Remedy.

Remedy’s outlook remains unchanged as the company expects its revenue and profit to grow during 2019, as mentioned in the half-year report released on August 13th 2019.
