  • Revenues increase 9.3% to quarterly record $129.7 million reflecting record Games and FinTech revenue
  • Net Income improves 267% to $5.5 million; Diluted Earnings per share rise to $0.07
  • Adjusted EBITDA increases 7.7% to quarterly record $64.1 million

(GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Everi Holdings Inc. (NYSE:EVRI) (“Everi” or the “Company”) today reported record financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019.

“Our focus on product innovation across both Games and FinTech, a commitment to excellence in customer service, and our continued prudent fiscal management once again helped drive record quarterly operating results,” said Everi President and CEO, Michael Rumbolz. “We generated our twelfth consecutive quarter of year over year revenue and Adjusted EBITDA growth, and our sixth consecutive quarter of positive net income. Revenue was up 9.3% to a record $129.7 million, net income increased 267% to $5.5 million, and Adjusted EBITDA rose 7.7% to a record $64.1 million. This growth was achieved across the business as the Games and FinTech businesses each had record revenues and Adjusted EBITDA.  Free Cash Flow continues to grow as we generated $7.0 million in the quarter and $28.2 million for the first half of 2019, which is up $21.8 million compared to the first half of 2018.  We repaid $15.7 million on our Term Loan during the second quarter and we expect to continue to utilize Free Cash Flow to reduce debt.”

Mr. Rumbolz added, “The record Games segment operating performance included continued growth across nearly all of the business’ key performance indicators. Second quarter unit sales increased 14.6% as we continue to see strong demand for our new Empire MPX cabinet and achieve solid sales for our mechanical reel games in our popular Player Classic cabinet. As anticipated, we returned to growth in our installed base in the second quarter driven primarily by a strong increase in premium unit placements, including wide-area progressive (“WAP”) units.  Our premium unit installed base rose nearly 23% year over year, with WAP units up more than 56%, or 288 units, to 800 units at quarter end.  The higher performance of our premium games as well as the investments we have made to improve the performance of the balance of the installed units led to the seventh consecutive quarter of growth in daily win per unit (“DWPU”), which improved 9.4% to a quarterly record $32.26.

“Our FinTech business also continues to grow, as the segment generated record revenue and Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter.  This is a testament to our ability to offer industry leading integrated solutions that help our customers operate more efficiently and maximize funds delivered to their casino floors while providing their guests with a rich, seamless experience. We are successfully executing on the attractive replacement cycle opportunity for integrated kiosk sales, with the second quarter representing another period of strong equipment sales. Information services revenues also rose more than 55% in the quarter inclusive of the benefit from our player loyalty technology acquired in March.

“Everi’s outlook for continued growth remains very promising. The improvement in our games and expansion of our offerings to better serve our customers will help drive additional growth across both segments of our business over the balance of the year.  We expect a continued expansion of our installed base over the second half of the year along with increases in DWPU and year-over-year growth in full year unit sales. We also expect further growth across our FinTech revenue drivers in the second half of the year, including the ongoing trend of strong sales of our integrated kiosks and further upside related to our new player loyalty technology. As a result of the continued strength in both lines of business, we remain on track to achieve our outlook for full year Adjusted EBITDA of $252 million to $255 million and for full year Free Cash Flow to double compared to last year.”

2019 Second Quarter Games Segment Highlights

Games segment revenues were $69.4 million in the second quarter of 2019 compared to $66.0 million in the second quarter of 2018.

• Revenues from gaming operations and other increased approximately 5.3%, or $2.3 million, to a record $46.0 million in the second quarter of 2019 compared to $43.7 million in the prior-year period.  The year-over-year improvement reflects an approximate 9.4% increase in estimated DWPU to a quarterly record $32.26, which was partially offset by the anticipated year-over-year decline in the average installed base.

  • As anticipated, the installed base at June 30, 2019 declined 507 units year over year to 13,694 units, reflecting previously disclosed unit reductions in the second half of 2018 and the first quarter of 2019.  On a quarterly sequential basis, the installed base grew by 50 units, primarily reflecting the continued expansion of premium units, partially offset by the Company’s proactive removal of lower performing games at a customer’s facilities in Oklahoma and conversions from lease to sale throughout the installed base.
  • The premium portion of the installed base increased 22.7% year over year, or by 631 units, to 3,413 units, which was 409 units higher on a quarterly sequential basis.  Wide-area progressive units, which are a component of premium units, grew by 288 units year over year and by 77 units on a quarterly sequential basis to 800 units at June 30, 2019.
  • DWPU in the second quarter of 2019 increased 9.4%, or $2.77, to $32.26, compared to $29.49 in the prior-year period. The increase reflects, in part, growth in premium unit placements, including wide-area progressive games, and improvements in overall unit performance following capital investments in new cabinets and games and an update of a portion of the installed base.  This was the seventh consecutive quarter of year-over-year growth in DWPU.
  • Interactive revenue was $1.3 million in the second quarter of 2019 compared to $0.3 million in the prior-year period.
  • Revenues from the New York Lottery business were $4.9 million in the second quarter of 2019 compared to $4.8 million in the prior-year period.

• Revenues generated from the sale of gaming units and other related parts and equipment totaled $23.4 million in the second quarter of 2019 compared to revenues of $22.3 million in the prior-year period. Unit sales increased 14.6% year over year to 1,270 units in the second quarter of 2019 compared to 1,108 units in the prior-year period.

2019 Second Quarter Financial Technology Solutions Segment Highlights

FinTech revenues increased approximately 14.4% to $60.3 million in the second quarter of 2019 compared to $52.7 million in the prior-year period.

• Revenues from cash access services, which include ATM, cash advance and check services, were $39.7 million in the second quarter of 2019 and 2018. Second quarter 2019 cash access services revenues reflect the benefit from increased same store transactions and dollars processed, as well as the benefits from new customer wins from competitive bid processes and new casino openings or expansions. This was offset by the impact of increased commission expense resulting from the Company securing long-term cash access extensions with several large customers as well as an impact from higher interchange costs related to certain ATM transactions.  The Company expects to recover a portion of the prospective impact from the interchange cost increases in the second half of 2019.

• Equipment sales revenues increased 62.5%, or $3.0 million, to $7.8 million in the second quarter of 2019 compared to $4.8 million in the second quarter of 2018. This increase is primarily due to higher year over year sales of fully integrated kiosks and other operator efficiency products in addition to $1.1 million of equipment sales from the newly acquired player loyalty and marketing business.

• Revenues from information services and other, which includes kiosk maintenance, compliance products, Central Credit, player loyalty and other revenue, increased 56.1%, or $4.6 million, to $12.8 million, in the second quarter of 2019 compared to $8.2 million in the second quarter of 2018. The increase is primarily due to $3.8 million of new revenues related to recurring software license support for the newly acquired player loyalty and marketing business.

2019 Outlook

Everi today reiterated its 2019 forecast for its expectation to generate growth in revenue, Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to rise to between $252 million to $255 million, with broad-based growth across the Company’s operating segments including expectations for:

• An increase in Games unit sales from the 4,513 units sold in 2018;

• Growth in gaming operations revenue driven by increases in both DWPU and in the number of units in the year-end installed base;

• Higher Interactive revenue;

• Higher cash access service revenue;

• An increase in sales of fully integrated kiosks and other FinTech equipment including player loyalty equipment; and,

• An increase in information services and other revenue driven by expected growth in revenue related to the servicing of FinTech equipment, higher compliance revenue and software sales, maintenance and professional services from the recently acquired player loyalty technology.

In addition, the Company expects capital expenditures and placement fees for 2019 will be between $122 million and $125 million, including approximately $3 million to $5 million related to the player loyalty acquisition.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

In order to enhance investor understanding of the underlying trends in our business, our cash balance and cash available for our operating needs, and to provide for better comparability between periods in different years, we are providing in this press release Adjusted EBITDA, Free Cash Flow, Net Cash Position and Net Cash Available, which are not measures of our financial performance or position under United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”). Accordingly, Adjusted EBITDA, and Free Cash Flow should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.  These measures should be read in conjunction with, our net earnings, operating income, basic or diluted earnings per share and cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP. With respect to Net Cash Position and Net Cash Available, these measures should be read in conjunction with cash and cash equivalents prepared in accordance with GAAP.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest, loss on extinguishment of debt, taxes, depreciation and amortization, non-cash stock compensation expense, accretion of contract rights, the write-off of inventory and fixed assets, and asset acquisition expense and other non-recurring professional service fees. We present Adjusted EBITDA as we use this measure to manage our business and consider this measure to be supplemental to our operating performance. We also make certain compensation decisions based, in part, on our operating performance, as measured by Adjusted EBITDA; and our current credit facility and existing senior unsecured notes require us to comply with a consolidated secured leverage ratio that includes performance metrics substantially similar to Adjusted EBITDA.

We define Free Cash Flow as Adjusted EBITDA less cash paid for interest, cash paid for capital expenditures, cash paid for placement fees, and cash paid for taxes net of refunds.  We present Free Cash Flow as a measure of performance and believe it provides investors with another indicator of our operating performance. It should not be inferred that the entire Free Cash Flow amount is available for discretionary expenditures.

A reconciliation of the Company’s net income per GAAP to Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow is included in the Unaudited Reconciliation of Net Income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA and to Free Cash Flow provided at the end of this release. Additionally, a reconciliation of each segment’s operating income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is also included. On a segment level, operating income per GAAP, rather than net earnings per GAAP, is reconciled to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as the Company does not report net earnings by segment. Management believes that this presentation is meaningful to investors in evaluating the performance of the Company’s segments.

We define (i) Net Cash Position as cash and cash equivalents plus settlement receivables less settlement liabilities and (ii) Net Cash Available as Net Cash Position plus undrawn amounts available under our revolving credit facility. We present Net Cash Position because our cash position, as measured by cash and cash equivalents, depends upon changes in settlement receivables and the timing of payments related to settlement liabilities. As such, our cash and cash equivalents can change substantially based upon the timing of our receipt of payments for settlement receivables and payments we make to customers for our settlement liabilities.  We present Net Cash Available as management monitors this amount in connection with its forecasting of cash flows and future cash requirements.

A reconciliation of the Company’s cash and cash equivalents per GAAP to Net Cash Position and Net Cash Available is included in the Unaudited Reconciliation of Cash and Cash Equivalents to Net Cash Position and Net Cash Available provided at the end of this release.
