LAS VEGAS, Aug. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — AGS (NYSE: AGS) (“AGS”, “us”, “we” or the “Company”) today reported operating results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

“Although casinos started to reopen in the later part of the quarter, we remained disciplined in how we reintroduced cost back into the business, ramping departments that are essential to run our business, such as field service, R&D and manufacturing,” said AGS President and Chief Executive Officer David Lopez.  “Initial game performance on EGM units that are in-service has been strong and better-than-expected, which allows us to lean on our strong recurring revenue footprint in this challenging environment.  Prior to and even during COVID-19, we were seeing strong initial performance from our new products, such as the Starwall and Orion Rise, as well as continued momentum from our new titles on Orion Portrait and our suite of table game progressives.  Given the breadth and depth of our current content portfolio, we believe that the long-term opportunities for AGS remain intact, and that we have ample liquidity and the best-in-class team to navigate through near-term uncertainties.” 

Kimo Akiona, AGS’ Chief Financial Officer, added, “Our careful management of expenses and capital expenditures during the casino shutdowns in the quarter — in addition to drawing $30 million under the existing revolving credit facility and entering into incremental term loans of $95 million — have resulted in a strengthened liquidity position. Although it is hard to predict exactly how the pandemic will continue to impact the macro operating environment, given all of the measures we’ve taken, we believe we are positioned with sufficient liquidity and flexibility to emerge from this a more competitive and more nimble organization.”

Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results

  • During March and April and continuing through mid- to late-May of the current year, nearly all of our customers closed their operations due to business disruption caused by the global spread of COVID-19 and the actions by governments and businesses to contain the virus. The markets that we serve have been severely impacted, which is the primary reason for the decreases in the metrics noted above, specifically revenues, (loss) income from operations, net loss, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA margin.
  • A limited number of customers reopened in mid- to late-May and through June; by June 30, approximately 500 of our 650 customers properties in the United States and Canada were partially open. In Mexico, 25 of our 320 customers properties were partially open as of June 30.
  • Total revenue decreased to $16.8 million, primarily due to decreased gaming operations revenue and unit sales in our EGM segment.
  • Gaming operations revenue, or recurring revenue, decreased to $10.2 million compared to $53.6 million in the prior year period, primarily related to our leased EGMs and Table Products that were impacted by closed casinos. This decrease was slightly offset by increased revenue in our Interactive segment.
  • Net loss of $42.6 million increased year-over-year from net loss of $7.6 million in the prior year, primarily due to the decrease in EGM and Table Products revenue, partially offset by decreases in expenses that were a result of management’s actions taken to decrease spending amid COVID-19, including employee furloughs, a reduction in force, and salary reductions. Additional savings resulted from the Company’s focus to reduce expenses, primarily in sales and marketing activities, professional fees, and delayed development expenses.
  • Total Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP)(1) decreased to a loss of $1.2 million compared to $35.7 million in the prior year period, driven by decreases in our EGM and Table Products segments and slightly offset by growth in our Interactive segment.

EGM Quarterly Results

Domestic Gaming Operations(3)

  • Domestic gaming operations revenue decreased $36.2 million, driven by disruptions in lease revenue from EGMs that were non-operational as noted above and to a lesser extent, a decreased installed base compared to the prior year period.
  • As of June 30, 2020, approximately 500 of our customer properties were open in the United States and Canada, which represents approximately 15,400 EGMs from our domestic installed base. Of these EGMs, we estimate that more than 11,000 of our EGMs were active as of June 30 due to the limited capacity and social distancing guidelines under which casinos have restarted operations. 
  • Domestic EGM installed base decreased by 627 units year-over-year, primarily due to the sale of 169 previously leased, lower-yielding Oklahoma units to distributors in the current period and 722 in previous periods.(4) These decreases were offset by placements of  210 EGMs at one new casino opening in the quarter.
  • Domestic EGM revenue per day (“RPD”) decreased to $5.96 compared to $26.16 in the prior year period, driven by non-operational EGMs in the quarter.
  • Excluding EGMs that were not active during the period, Domestic EGM RPD increased to approximately $33.00, due to strong play levels, which we believe was bolstered by pent-up demand, limited supply, and the Federal stimulus benefit provided for under the CARES Act.

International Gaming Operations

  • International gaming operations revenue decreased to nearly $0 in the current year period as nearly all our customers remained closed for the entire second quarter in Mexico and the Philippines.
  • As of June 30, 2020, 25 of our customer properties were open in Mexico, which represents approximately 500 EGMs in our international installed base.
  • International installed base decreased 627 units year over year due to casinos that closed permanently in Mexico as well as the sale of previously leased machines in the last 12 months.

Equipment Sales

  • EGM units sold decreased to 209 units in the second quarter, primarily due to business disruptions related to COVID-19 as noted above and reduced customer budgets for EGM purchases.(4)
  • Domestic ASP for EGMs increased to $19,646 from $18,178 in the prior year period driven by a favorable product mix that included sales of our new Orion Curve cabinet in the current period.
  • EGM equipment sales revenue was driven by sales in Arkansas, California, Nevada, and New York and International EGM units were sold primarily into Argentina.

Product Highlights

  • Initial placements of our new premium, lease-only Starwall immersive video cabinet in Oklahoma continued to perform between 2.5x to 3.0x house average.
  • Initial placements of nearly 40 Orion Curve cabinets in the quarter mark the launch of this product that is the driver of our significantly improved ASP in the current quarter.

(3)

“Domestic” includes both the United States and Canada.

(4)

The 169 units were not included in our sold unit count or ASP for the current period.

Table Products Quarterly Results

  • Table Products gaming operations revenue decreased to $0.5 million in the current period, driven by casino closures in the quarter.
  • Table Products installed base increased year-over-year driven by the continued growth of all of our product categories, including side bets, premium table games, table equipment and, most notably, progressives.
  • Equipment sales revenue increased $0.1 million in the current year period primarily due to sales of protective VisiDeal Shield plexiglass player dividers and other parts to help our casino customers operate safely in this new environment. The prior year period included sales of both our new Dex S card shuffler and our table signage.
  • Installed base of table game progressives of over 1,350 units, up 28% year-over-year.

Interactive Quarterly Results

  • Total revenue increased $1.0 million, while Adjusted EBITDA increased $1.8 million compared to the prior year.
  • Interactive segment reported positive Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter in a row, up both year-over year and sequentially, due to an increase in both real-money gaming (“RMG”) and Social gaming revenue and bolstered by cost savings from the restructuring of our social business in prior periods and company-wide cost savings measures in the current period.
  • RMG revenue increased $0.8 million, driven by the continued introduction of our EGM content in the European RMG market, the recent launch into the New Jersey market in the fourth quarter of 2019, as well as the launch in Pennsylvania in the current quarter.
  • Our RMG platform in Pennsylvania and New Jersey currently provides game content to nine operators, with the recent additions of Rush Street Interactive and Parx Online in Pennsylvania, as well as Harrah’s, WSOP, and 888 in New Jersey in the quarter.

Liquidity and Capital Expenditures

As of June 30, 2020, we had $113.1 million in cash and cash equivalents compared to $13.2 million at December 31, 2019. Total principle amount of debt as of June 30, 2020, of $656.0 million was predominantly comprised of first lien term loans of $624.3 million, which mature in 2024, and revolving credit facility of $30.0 million, which matures in 2022.

As a precautionary measure to increase the Company’s cash position and facilitate financial flexibility in light of current uncertainty in the gaming industry resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, in March the Company borrowed $30 million under the revolving credit facility and in May issued an additional $95 million in term loans. In connection with the new term loans, the Company negotiated a financial covenant relief period through December 31, 2020 related to its net first lien leverage ratio financial covenant, and implemented a revised calculation of EBITDA to be used in the net first lien leverage ratio for the first three quarters of 2021. 

Total net debt, which is the principal amount of debt outstanding less cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2020, was approximately $542.9 million compared to $520.6 million at December 31, 2019. Our Total Net Debt Leverage Ratio increased from 3.6 times at December 31, 2019, to 5.6 times at June 30, 2020, see Total Net Debt Leverage Ratio Reconciliation below.(6) 

Capital expenditures decreased by 74% to $3.9 million in the current period, which is in line with our plans to reduce the use of our cash and invest in those projects that will yield the highest returns.  The current quarter capital expenditures were primarily comprised of $2.0 million in intangible capital expenditures, including internal software development, as well as $1.8 million in growth capital expenditures, primarily for machines placed at a new casino opening.

Total Adjusted EBITDA and total net debt leverage ratio are non-GAAP measures, see non-GAAP reconciliation below.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To provide investors with additional information in connection with our results as determined by generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), we disclose the following non-GAAP financial measures: total Adjusted EBITDA, total Adjusted EBITDA margin, total net debt leverage ratio, and Free Cash Flow. These measures are not financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for net income, operating income, cash flows, or any other measure calculated in accordance with GAAP, and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Total Adjusted EBITDA

This press release and accompanying schedules provide certain information regarding Adjusted EBITDA, which is considered a non-GAAP financial measure under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

We believe that the presentation of total Adjusted EBITDA is appropriate to provide additional information to investors about certain material non-cash items that we do not expect to continue at the same level in the future, as well as other items we do not consider indicative of our ongoing operating performance. Further, we believe total Adjusted EBITDA provides a meaningful measure of operating profitability because we use it for evaluating our business performance, making budgeting decisions, and comparing our performance against that of other peer companies using similar measures. It also provides management and investors with additional information to estimate our value.

Total Adjusted EBITDA is not a presentation made in accordance with GAAP. Our use of the term total Adjusted EBITDA may vary from others in our industry. Total Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to operating income or net income. Total Adjusted EBITDA has important limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for the analysis of our results as reported under GAAP.

Our definition of total Adjusted EBITDA allows us to add back certain non-cash charges that are deducted in calculating net income and to deduct certain gains that are included in calculating net income. However, these expenses and gains vary greatly, and are difficult to predict. They can represent the effect of long-term strategies as opposed to short-term results. In addition, in the case of charges or expenses, these items can represent the reduction of cash that could be used for other corporate purposes. Due to these limitations, we rely primarily on our GAAP results, such as net loss, (loss) income from operations, EGM Adjusted EBITDA, Table Products Adjusted EBITDA or Interactive Adjusted EBITDA and use Total Adjusted EBITDA only supplementally.

The total Adjusted EBITDA discussion above is also applicable to its margin measure, which is calculated as total Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of Total Revenue.

The following table presents a reconciliation of total Adjusted EBITDA to net loss, which is the most comparable GAAP measure:

(8) Write-downs and other includes items related to loss on disposal or impairment of long-lived assets, fair value adjustments to contingent consideration, and acquisition costs.

(9) Other adjustments are primarily composed of professional fees incurred for projects, corporate and public filing compliance, contract cancellation fees, and other transaction costs deemed to be non-operating in nature, as well as costs incurred related to initial public offering, net of costs capitalized to equity and the cost of related secondary offerings.

(10) Other non-cash charges are costs related to non-cash charges and losses on the disposition of assets, non-cash charges on capitalized installation and delivery, which primarily includes the costs to acquire contracts that are expensed over the estimated life of each contract, and non-cash charges related to accretion of contract rights under development agreements.

(11)  Legal and litigation expenses including settlement payments consist of payments to law firms and settlements for matters that are outside the normal course of business. These costs related to litigation and matters that were not significant individually.

(12) Acquisition and integration costs primarily relate to costs incurred after the purchase of businesses, such as the purchase of Integrity, to integrate operations and obtain costs synergies. Restructuring and severance costs primarily relate to costs incurred through the restructuring of the Company’s operations from time to time and other employee severance costs recognized in the periods presented.

Free Cash Flow

This schedule provides certain information regarding Free Cash Flow, which is considered a non-GAAP financial measure under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

We define Free Cash Flow as net cash provided by operating activities less cash outlays related to capital expenditures. We define capital expenditures to include purchase of intangible assets, software development and other expenditures, and purchases of property and equipment. In arriving at Free Cash Flow, we subtract cash outlays related to capital expenditures from net cash provided by operating activities because they represent long-term investments that are required for normal business activities. As a result, subject to the limitations described below, Free Cash Flow is a useful measure of our cash available to repay debt and/or make other investments.

Free Cash Flow adjusts for cash items that are ultimately within management’s discretion to direct, and therefore, may imply that there is less or more cash that is available than the most comparable GAAP measure. Free Cash Flow is not intended to represent residual cash flow for discretionary expenditures since debt repayment requirements and other non-discretionary expenditures are not deducted. These limitations are best addressed by using Free Cash Flow in combination with the GAAP cash flow numbers.

The following table presents a reconciliation of Free Cash Flow:
