Executive Comments

Gary A. Vecchiarelli, Galaxy’s CFO commented, “2016 started with increases across the board. We have now increased our recurring revenues 17 of the last 18 quarters. Our EBITDA has also improved significantly, with a one-two punch of an increase in our recurring revenues and a decrease in our operating expenses.”

Robert B. Saucier, Galaxy’s CEO added, “It's always encouraging to start the year on such a high note. While the numbers speak for themselves, it is important to comprehend that throughout 2015 and early 2016, we were engaged in time consuming and expensive litigation. As previously reported, we prevailed in the litigation, which we are in the final stages of winding up. Accordingly, we are now able to focus on more productive things, such as growing our core business. Our results prove that our products are gaining solid market acceptance and as a result, we continue to increase placements. These increases combined with the reduction of operating expenses permit us to aggressively pay down our long-term debt.”

Financial Summary

Revenue. Total revenue for the first quarter 2016 increased 15% to $2,984,099, over the same quarter 2015. This increase is primarily due to additional placement of premium games and expansion into new territories. Between the first quarter 2016 and fourth quarter 2015, total revenues increased 2% to $2,984,099. This increase was recognized in all categories of products, with premium games netting the largest gains. The annualized recurring revenue run-rate as of March 31, 2016 is $11,927,280.

Total costs and expenses. Expenses for the first quarter 2016 remained relatively consistent with a decrease less than 1% to $2,189,730, when compared to the same quarter 2015. The total costs and expenses in the first quarter 2016 decreased 19% to $2,189,730 compared to the fourth quarter 2015. This decrease was primarily due to legal costs decreasing as litigation commenced formal proceedings in the fourth quarter 2015.

Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure (described below), for the first quarter 2016 increased 49% to $1,230,814, compared to the same quarter 2015. Lower selling, general & administrative expenses contributed to the increase in Adjusted EBITDA between the periods. Adjusted EBITDA in the first quarter 2016 increased 75% to $1,230,814 compared to the fourth quarter in 2015. This increase was primarily driven by the combination of an increase in revenues and a decrease in selling, general & administrative expenses. The decrease in selling, general & administrative expenses was primarily driven by lower legal costs attributed to litigation.

Net income. Net income for the first quarter 2016 was $379,367, which was an increase of 502% from the same quarter 2015. The increase was primarily due to the increases in our recurring revenues and lower costs and expenses. The net income of $379,367 in the first quarter reversed a net loss recognized in fourth quarter of 2015. This reversal was the combined result of increased revenues and decreases in selling, general & administrative expenses, for reasons previously mentioned.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

Galaxy Gaming, Inc. (the “Company”) prepares its consolidated financial statements in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). In addition to disclosing financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP, the Company discloses information regarding Adjusted EBITDA, which differs from the term EBITDA as it is commonly used. In addition to adjusting net income (loss) from continuing operations to exclude taxes, interest, and depreciation and amortization, Adjusted EBITDA also excludes noncash charges, certain non-recurring charges and share-based compensation expense. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of performance defined in accordance with GAAP. However, Adjusted EBITDA is used internally in planning and evaluating the Company's operating performance. Accordingly, management believes that disclosure of this metric offers investors, bankers and other stakeholders an additional view of the Company's operations that, when coupled with the GAAP results, provides a more complete understanding of the Company's financial results.

Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net loss or to net cash used in operating activities as a measure of operating results or of liquidity. It may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies, and it excludes financial information that some may consider important in evaluating the Company's performance. A reconciliation of GAAP net loss from continuing operations to Adjusted EBITDA is included in the accompanying financial schedules.
