Executive Comments

Robert B. Saucier, Galaxy’s CEO stated, “The seeds for growth we previously sowed are now being harvested. As evidenced by this record-breaking quarter, our core business continues to build, thus enhancing our ultra-high margin recurring revenue stream. This performance allows us to continue to pay down our long-term debt whilst reinvesting for further growth. At this halfway point, we remain convinced that 2016 will be our best year ever.

Mr. Saucier continued, “It is also evident from these numbers that our business model is extremely scalable. For example, the 15% increase in year-to-date revenues resulted in a 463% increase in net income. Another way to look at it is that of the $781K additional revenue realized in the first half of 2016, 80% of those dollars dropped to the bottom line.”

Financial Summary

Revenue. Total revenue for the second quarter 2016 increased 14% to $3,064,171, over the same quarter 2015. This increase is primarily due to additional placement of premium games and expansion into new territories. Between the second quarter 2016 and first quarter 2016, total revenues increased 3% to $3,064,171. This increase was recognized in all categories of products, with premium games netting the largest gains. The annualized recurring revenue run-rate as of June 30, 2016 is approximately $12,256,684.

Total costs and expenses. Expenses for the second quarter 2016 decreased 4% to $2,200,459, when compared to the same quarter 2015. The decrease is primarily due to lower legal and professional expenses. The total costs and expenses in the second quarter 2016 increased less than 1% to $2,220,459 compared to the first quarter 2016, primarily driven by increases in research & development costs.

Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure (described below), for the second quarter 2016 increased 56% to $1,310,515, compared to the same quarter 2015. Increased gross revenues and lower selling, general & administrative expenses contributed to the increase in Adjusted EBITDA between the periods. Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter 2016 increased 6% to $1,310,515 compared to the first quarter in 2016. This increase was also driven by the combination of an increase in gross 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 second quarter 2016 was $377,527, which was an increase of 427% 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 $377,527 in the second quarter decreased less than 1% compared to the first quarter 2016. This increase 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.

The Company's definition of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable with similarly titled measures used by other companies.
