Michael Rumbolz, President and Chief Executive Officer of Everi, commented, “Momentum in our business continues to build following our implementation of a range of strategic and operational initiatives early in 2016. Our progress includes a respective 13% and 6% year-over-year increase in revenue and Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of 2017 as well as a 14% increase in revenue and 12% increase in Adjusted EBITDA for the first half of 2017 compared to the first half of 2016. We are seeing strength across our Payments and Games segments as our commitment to continued product innovation has led to a more robust portfolio of solutions that address our customers’ cash access and gaming entertainment needs, which in turn is delivering improved market share for both businesses. Reflecting the continued momentum in our business and strength of operating results in the first half of 2017, we are raising our outlook for full year Adjusted EBITDA to a new range of $209 million to $212 million.

“Our Payments segment had another very strong quarter as we continue to benefit from a broad range of growth drivers. These include positive macroeconomic trends and regional gaming revenue growth, which are helping to drive same-store improvements in cash access transactions and cash to the floor. In addition, our industry-leading portfolio of comprehensive solutions and commitment to customer service are catalysts for our ability to secure business at new casinos, our continued success with competitive takeouts, and the strong growth in compliance solutions sales. As the clear industry leader with the best and most comprehensive portfolio of solutions, our Payments segment is positioned to continue to grow going forward.

“In our Games segment, we continue to expand our capabilities as a full-service gaming equipment provider which is helping to increase our quarterly ship share of units sold and is also mitigating the impact to our gaming operations from removals of older third-party Class III unit from our installed base. We continue to benefit from the ongoing introduction of newer offerings, including our new wide-area progressive and other premium games for our installed base. These new offerings are expected to help return quarterly sequential growth to our installed base unit count and also generate improved yield from these games. As a result, we expect gaming operations revenue for the second half of 2017 to improve over the first half of the year. In addition, we recently signed an agreement with our largest customer in Oklahoma that covers placement of approximately 4,300 units at their facilities for just under seven years, providing a foundation of stability for our installed base and greater visibility for a significant source of long-term recurring revenue and Adjusted EBITDA. Our Games segment is well positioned to grow annual unit sales as well as installed base placements and yield going forward.”

Mr. Rumbolz concluded, “We also completed the refinancing of a significant portion of our debt in the second quarter which supports our goal of improving free cash flow that can be deployed for deleveraging activities. We continue to monitor the debt markets and the trading of our debt with a goal of further reducing interest costs if such opportunities become available. Overall, Everi is well positioned to achieve additional success going forward as we benefit from growth drivers for both our Games and Payments segments as well as from our improved financial flexibility.”

2017 Second Quarter Games Segment Highlights and Recent Developments:

  • Revenues increased approximately 1.5% to $55.1 million in the second quarter of 2017 compared to $54.3 million in the second quarter of 2016.

  • Revenues from gaming operations were $37.5 million in the second quarter of 2017 compared to $38.8 million in the prior-year period primarily reflecting a year-over-year decline in estimated daily win per unit (“DWPU”).

  • The installed base at June 30, 2017 was 12,942 units, which represents a year-over-year decline of 237 units net of the removal of 1,115 third-party Class III units from the installed base since June 30, 2016. The 80 unit quarterly sequential decline in the installed base includes the removal of 248 third-party Class III units.

  • Estimated DWPU was $27.07 during the second quarter of 2017 compared to $28.22 in the prior-year period reflecting, in part, the impact of the removals of higher-performing third-party Class III units from the installed base.

  • Revenues from the New York Lottery business were $4.7 million in both the second quarter of 2017 and 2016.

  • The Company generated revenues of $17.6 million in the second quarter of 2017 from the sale of 886 gaming units. In the prior-year period, the Company generated revenues of $15.5 million from the sale of 819 gaming units.

  • Everi recently entered into an agreement (the “Player Station Agreement”) with its largest customer in Oklahoma pursuant to which the Company has consolidated and replaced prior placement fee arrangements with this customer covering approximately 4,300 Class II units in its installed base for a period of 83 months from the effective date in mid-July 2017. Under the terms of the Player Station Agreement, the Company made a $10.0 million cash payment in August of 2017, and will pay approximately $5.6 million per quarter in placement fees, beginning in January 2018 and ending in July 2019.

2017 Second Quarter Payments Segment Highlights:

  • Revenues increased approximately 17.2% to $187.1 million in the second quarter of 2017 compared to $159.7 million in the prior-year period. The growth was fairly broad-based across the Payments segment and included growth in core cash access revenue as a result of same store transaction and dollars processed increases, surcharge and service fee increases implemented by our customers, new customer wins occurring since the second quarter of 2016 and in early 2017 which include new casino openings and competitive takeouts, the expansion of ATM services into Canada, and increases in Everi Compliance revenue.

  • Cash advance revenues increased approximately 18.8% to $70.8 million in the second quarter of 2017 compared to $59.6 million in the prior-year period.

  • ATM revenues increased approximately 18.1% to $99.2 million in the second quarter of 2017 compared to $84.0 million in the prior-year period.

  • Check services revenues increased approximately 1.9% to $5.4 million in the second quarter of 2017 compared to $5.3 million in the prior-year period.

  • Other revenues increased approximately 7.3% to $11.7 million in the second quarter of 2017 compared to $10.9 million in the prior-year period. The increase was primarily related to increased revenue from Everi Compliance. Revenue from Everi Compliance increased 52% in the first half of 2017 compared to the first half of 2016.

Updated 2017 Outlook

Everi today updated its forecast for 2017 financial and operational metrics. The Company raised its expectations for 2017 full year Adjusted EBITDA to a new range of $209 million to $212 million. The updated outlook reflects the following key assumptions:

  • The Company continues to expect that full year unit sales for the Games segment will increase approximately 12% to 15% from the 2,954 units sold in 2016. Unit sales for the second half of 2017 are expected to be less than the 1,703 units sold in the second half of 2016 as unit sales in the second half of 2016 benefited from 200 units sold to the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (the Company’s largest ever quarterly unit sale to a single customer) in the third quarter of 2016, as well as from a solid level of unit sales to several new casinos that opened in the second half of 2016 with no comparable level of new casino openings expected in the second half of 2017.

  • The installed base for the Games segment at December 31, 2017 is expected to be higher than the reported installed base at December 31, 2016. The Company expects to benefit from the continued rollout of its Jackpot Lockdown™ Class II wide-area progressive (“WAP”) product, which includes the introduction of two Class II video reel games featuring Casablanca™ and Penn & Teller™, as well as from new premium licensed brands that will be introduced over the remainder of 2017. This growth in the installed base over the balance of 2017 includes the expectation that the Company’s remaining third-party Class III units will not change materially throughout the rest of the year and that an estimated 200 Class II units will be removed from certain tribal customer facilities due to changes in tribal gaming compacts with the State of California over the remainder of the year.

  • Based on the expected growth in the Company’s installed base in the third and fourth quarters of 2017, the expected growth in placements of higher performing WAP and other premium units, and the lessening impact from removals of higher performing third-party Class III units than in prior periods, the Company expects an improvement in the DWPU performance in the second half of 2017 and believes revenue from the installed base portion of gaming operations in the second half of 2017 will exceed the installed base revenue generated in the first half of 2017.

  • Quarterly revenue and Adjusted EBITDA for the Company’s Payments segment is expected to grow year over year for the balance of 2017. The Company expects growth in Payments segment revenues in the mid-single digits and growth in Adjusted EBITDA in the low single digits compared to the second half of 2016, assuming a sustained performance in the gaming industry and United States economy as a whole. These growth percentages also reflect several new casino wins in the second half of 2016 that have their first anniversary of service in the second half of 2017.

  • Revenue from kiosk sales and service and compliance products are expected to be lower in the second half of 2017 as compared to 2016, and is reflected in the overall Payments revenue and Adjusted EBITDA growth discussed above.

  • Capital expenditures in 2017 are expected to be between $95 million and $105 million, which now includes $10.0 million of additional placement fee payments made in the third quarter of 2017 related to the new Player Station Agreement.

  • Depreciation expense is expected to be between $44 million and $46 million.

  • Amortization expense is expected to decline significantly from the $94.6 million reported in 2016 to between $69 million and $71 million. This reduction is the result of certain intangible assets that were recorded as part of the Company’s purchase price allocation from the merger of Everi and Everi Games Holding Inc. becoming fully amortized in 2016.

  • Interest expense is estimated to be between $95 million and $97 million, inclusive of Vault Cash interest expense of between $4 million and $5 million and non-cash amortization of debt issuance costs of approximately $6 million for 2017.

  • The Company expects to record a provision for income tax of between $4 million and $5 million for 2017, which includes cash tax payments of between $2 million and $3 million.

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, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, 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, these measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, and should be read in conjunction with, our (i) net earnings (loss), operating income (loss), basic or diluted earnings (loss) per share and cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP, with respect to Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin, and (ii) cash and cash equivalents prepared in accordance with GAAP, with respect to net cash position and net cash available.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as earnings (loss) before interest, taxes, loss on extinguishment of debt, depreciation and amortization, non-cash stock compensation expense, accretion of contract rights, separation costs related to the Company’s former CEO, write-down of note receivable and warrant, and loss on sale of the aircraft. 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 Adjusted EBITDA Margin as Adjusted EBITDA divided by revenues.

A reconciliation of the Company’s net loss per GAAP to Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin is included in the Unaudited Reconciliation of Net Loss to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin provided at the end of this release. Additionally, a reconciliation of each segment’s operating income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA is also included. On a segment level, operating income (loss) per GAAP, rather than net earnings (loss) per GAAP, is reconciled to Adjusted EBITDA as the Company does not report net earnings (loss) by segment. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA Margin is provided on a segment level. 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.
