Inspired Announces Partnership With Hockey Legend Jaromir Jágr

NEW YORK, Oct. 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Inspired Entertainment, Inc. ("Inspired") (NASDAQ: INSE) today announced it has signed a worldwide exclusive brand partnership with legendary hockey star Jaromir Jágr. Pursuant to this partnership, Inspired, a leading provider of Server Based Gaming, Virtual Sports and Interactive Gaming, expects to use Jágr's image and likeness in its gaming products for the virtual sports, casino and lottery sectors, as well as digital variants for online and mobile.

Jaromir Jágr is an Olympic gold-medal winning professional ice hockey player who's made history as one of the most prolific point scorers in National Hockey League ("NHL") history. Over the course of his 24-year career he has played for the Penguins, Capitals, Rangers, Flyers, Stars, Bruins, Devils, Panthers and Flames. He has won two consecutive Stanley Cups and individually received the Art Ross Trophy as the scoring champion five times, the Lester B. Pearson Award for the NHL's outstanding player as voted by the NHL Players' Association three times, and the Hart Memorial Trophy as the league's most valuable player. He is considered one of the greatest professional hockey players of all time and is one of only 29 players in the Triple Gold Club, having won the IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship, the Olympic Ice Hockey tournament and the Stanley Cup.

"I am very excited about this partnership and the opportunity to be the face of Inspired's suite of hockey gaming products," said Jaromir Jágr. "I have been increasingly impressed with their creativity and innovation in using live action to establish themselves with leading edge technology in Virtual Sports. I've done almost everything imaginable on the ice in my hockey career so I can't wait to see the breakout plays that Inspired puts together for Virtual Hockey."

In addition to being the talent behind Inspired's upcoming Virtual Hockey game, Jágr is expected to become the face of the Company's new slot game 'Jágr Super Slots', expected to launch later this year throughout its global customer base, and be featured in its live action penalty shoot-out game and bingo game that are under development for anticipated release in 2020.

"We are thrilled to announce Jaromir Jágr as the face of Inspired's newest suite of games," said Brooks Pierce, President and Chief Operating Officer of Inspired. "With an impressively long and successful career, Jaromir is one of hockey's greatest performers and personalities. Jaromir's fans will appreciate the realistic quality of the action and imagery in all of the gaming products we are creating."

Many of these new Jágr-inspired products will be showcased at the Company's booth at the Global Gaming Expo (G2E), the largest gathering of global, commercial and tribal gaming professionals in North America, October 15th to 17th at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas.

To celebrate this new brand partnership, Jágr will be making a VIP guest appearance at Inspired's G2E booth #4130 on Wednesday, October 16, 2019 from 1:00pm PT to 3:00pm PT, where Inspired is bringing content and solutions that demonstrate what makes the company "Essential Entertainment".

Inspired Completes Acquisition Of Novomatic UK's Gaming Technology Group

Combination Diversifies and Broadens Scale and Scope of Inspired's Footprint and Product Offering

NEW YORKOct. 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Inspired Entertainment, Inc. ("Inspired") (INSE) announced today that it has completed the acquisition of the Gaming Technology Group ("NTG") of Novomatic UK Ltd. ("Novomatic UK"), a division of NOVOMATIC GROUP, a leading international supplier of gaming equipment and solutions. 

This acquisition combines Inspired's position and expertise in server based gaming, virtual sports and interactive with NTG's diversified gaming products and popular content, across a complementary customer base.  Inspired is a leading supplier of Category B2/B3 gaming terminals, and NTG is a leading supplier of Category B3, C and D gaming terminals to pubs, arcades, motorway service areas and holiday resorts in the UK.  Inspired will now supply (i) gaming systems with associated terminals and content for more than 58,000 gaming machines located in betting shops, pubs, gaming halls and other route operations, (ii) virtual sports products through more than 44,000 retail channels, (iii) digital games for 100+ websites and (iv) a variety of amusement entertainment solutions with a total installed base of more than 19,000 devices. Inspired continues to be well positioned to supply an extensive range of products and services across the UK, Europe and beyond.

Inspired plans to draw on each organization's core strengths to broaden offerings, bring differentiated gaming products to new sectors and geographies, accelerate key growth initiatives and offer enhanced capabilities, systems, field service and content.  The addition of NTG is expected to help diversify Inspired's UK business and enable Inspired to expand into contiguous customer segments with very little overlap of existing customers. Inspired's position and expertise in server based gaming is expected to accelerate NTG's development initiatives to transition the pub gaming sector from analog to digital gaming machines, systems and content. Together, Inspired and NTG are well positioned to capitalize on further converting NTG's game library for online deployment.

"This acquisition is transformational for Inspired as it unites two highly complementary businesses to create a company that we expect to be a leader in the gaming industry with innovative content, state-of-the-art technology and an expansive footprint," said Lorne Weil, Executive Chairman of Inspired.  "We see significant opportunities across the combined companies to accelerate our growth, expand our reach and set new standards for innovation and service in the industry."

Mr. Weil continued, "The larger scale of the combined organization will offer a one-stop service for gaming, virtual sports, interactive and leisure products – and a complete gaming solution that operators can use to reach players wherever they are, whenever they want to play and in any channel they choose.  We expect to be able to deliver meaningful value to our shareholders as the acquisition is integrated."

To acquire NTG, Inspired paid approximately €104.6 million in cash.  In connection with the acquisition, Inspired entered into a new term loan facility for £140 million and €90 million and a £20 million revolving credit facility. The term loan facility was used, in part, to finance the acquisition, to pay off existing indebtedness and to pay fees and expenses related to the acquisition and related financing.  The refinancing of the current debt is expected to result in a reduction in cost of debt capital.

Inspired expects to achieve US$12.3 million to US$13.3 million of annual cost synergies (across cost of sales and selling, general and administrative costs and excluding one off implementation costs), within six months of the closing date based upon the 1.269 USD/GBP spot exchange rate at the time of signing of the transaction, through shared costs and increased scale.  Inspired expects to be able to make efficient use of shared manufacturing, engineering, software development, field maintenance and customer service to drive growth and cost savings.  Inspired further expects to reduce capital deployed in the pub gaming sector.

About Inspired Entertainment, Inc.
Inspired offers an expanding portfolio of content, technology, hardware and services for regulated gaming, betting, lottery, and leisure operators across retail and mobile channels around the world. The Company's gaming, virtual sports, interactive and leisure products appeal to a wide variety of players, creating new opportunities for operators to grow their revenue. The Company operates in approximately 35 jurisdictions worldwide, supplying gaming systems with associated terminals and content for more than 58,000 gaming machines located in betting shops, pubs, gaming halls and other route operations; virtual sports products through more than 44,000 retail channels; digital games for 100+ websites; and a variety of amusement entertainment solutions with a total installed base of more than 19,000 devices.  Additional information can be found at www.inseinc.com.

Inspired Signs Exclusive Worldwide Virtual Sports License with NFL Alumni

New York, September 9, 2019 – Inspired Entertainment, Inc. (“Inspired”) (NASDAQ: INSE) announced today that it has signed an agreement with VEEPIO, the mobile technology arm of the NFL Alumni (“NFLA”), to utilize the name, brand, image, persona and likenesses of the NFLA members to be commercially used worldwide in virtual football games. The NFLA is the oldest and best-known retired player organization in professional sports composed of thousands of former NFL players, coaches, team staff members and associated members.

As the pioneer of Virtual Sports, Inspired has recreated the action of the world’s most popular sports for more than 15 years. With this agreement, Inspired will have exclusive worldwide rights to utilize the brand and image of the NFLA members for its Virtual Products. Inspired intends to use its award winning visual effects and the latest in motion capture technology to bring the NFLA greats to life, delivering an experience and not just a game with its ‘Legends of Football’. Inspired is currently the only provider of Virtual Football, which has received a tremendous response since launching in 2018, as evidenced by bet 365’s recent launch of two new channels of football.

Inspired’s “Legends of Football” virtual football game will showcase some legends of the game, including NFL Hall of Fame players like Franco Harris. Harris said, “I’m excited to see the Inspired virtual product and connect with fans who may not have seen me or some of my contemporaries play during our careers. I’m especially proud of the benefit that will be derived by the NFL Alumni retired players as they transition into their lives after football.”

Phil Villipiano, the All Pro and 2019 GridIron Greats Hall of Fame inductee from the Oakland Raiders, who was on the field with Franco during the famous “Immaculate Reception” play, said it best, “I know it’s only virtual football, but it sure would be great to see the outcome of that play differently. Like Franco, I’m excited that proceeds from the ‘Legends of Football’ virtual game will go to the benefit of my fellow NFL Alumni to help them in areas like healthcare.”

“We are pleased to announce our partnership with the NFLA and VEEPIO,” said Brooks Pierce, President and Chief Operating Officer of Inspired Entertainment. “We have had great success since the introduction of our Virtual Football games but we expect this partnership to take it to the next level. VEEPIO allows us to produce the first-ever suite of entertainment products featuring the brands and images of the ‘Legends of Football’. Fans will love cheering on their favorite superstar players of all time, creating a more passionate and competitive experience.”

The primary focus of the NFLA is to serve, assist and inform players in their post-NFL lives. Alumni are offered a diverse package of medical, business, and legal services to help keep them and their families healthy, productive, and connected to the league and their former teammates. The NFLA also continues to support organizations and projects that offer special promise to advance the quality of life in communities where Alumni chapters are located. Together, the NFLA raises more than $1 million a year for local nonprofit causes.

“We are always looking for new and different channels to expand our reach, assist our members, and help our local communities,” said NFLA CEO Beasley Reese. “This partnership with Inspired fits well within our primary mission of ‘Caring for Our Own’. The Legends of Football suite of games helps position NFL alumni to grow their brands, embrace technology, and enhance their financial stability.”

“As the award-winning recognized leader in Virtual Sports, Inspired is the perfect fit for VEEPIO and the NFLA,” said Jonathan Ohliger, CEO of VEEPIO. “They have grown the Virtual Sports category massively in recent years, but no one has offered a virtual football game with the former players. We have every confidence that Inspired will put together an exhilarating suite of games that will help benefit NFLA member initiatives.”

Inspired Announces Agreement To Acquire Novomatic UK's Gaming Technology Group

Anticipated to Diversify and Broaden Scale and Scope of Inspired's Footprint and Product Offering
 
Complementary Portfolio of Innovative Content and World-Class Technology
 
Projected Annual Cost Synergies of US$12.3 to US$13.3 Million[1]

 

NEW YORKJune 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Inspired Entertainment, Inc. ("Inspired") (INSE) today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire the Gaming Technology Group ("NTG") of Novomatic UK Ltd. ("Novomatic UK"), a division of NOVOMATIC GROUP, a leading international supplier of gaming equipment and solutions, for the EUR equivalent of US$120.0 million in cash.

Inspired is a leading supplier of Category B2/B3 gaming terminals in the UK, and NTG is a leading supplier of Category B3, C and D gaming terminals to pubs, arcades, motorway service areas and holiday resorts in the UK.  Following the transaction, Inspired would be positioned to supply an extensive range of products and services across the UK and Europe, and beyond.  Upon closing the acquisition, Inspired would manage more than 75,000 gaming machines in the UK and Europe.

"The potential acquisition of NTG is transformational for Inspired, enabling us to dramatically increase the size, scale and scope of our business by combining our highly complementary, but largely non-overlapping, businesses," said Lorne Weil, Executive Chairman of Inspired Entertainment. "We expect to leverage our superior game content, technology, operational capabilities and respective footprints to augment the existing growth trends for our enterprise."

NTG is comprised of the following six companies:

  • Gamestec Leisure – Primarily serving the UK pub sector through the placement of gaming machines on a managed service basis and delivering service support to the bingo and self service betting terminals sectors. 
  • Playnation Limited – Serving the UK holiday and leisure industry, including holiday parks, motorway service stations, bowling alleys, airports and independent holiday resorts through revenue share arrangements with operators.
  • Astra Games Limited – Gaming machine manufacturer, selling Category B, C and D gaming machines to pubs, adult gaming centers, and holiday resorts.
  • Bell-Fruit Group Limited – Primarily selling Category C machines, both analog and digital, and exporting machines to key European geographies.
  • Harlequin Gaming Limited – Game development studio for Astra and Bell-Fruit.
  • Innov8 Gaming Limited – Gaming machine developer supplying Category B3 and C gaming machines within the NTG and to external customers.

Mr. Weil continued, "Inspired and NTG currently operate in different segments but have much in common in terms of providing resources for our customers and their consumers.  This combination would provide additional resources for our core businesses and combine the great content and machine portfolio from each. We expect to be able to deliver meaningful value to our shareholders as the acquisition is integrated."

Improved Operating Efficiencies

Inspired expects to achieve $12.3 million to $13.3 million of synergies through shared costs and increased scale. Inspired also expects to be able to make efficient use of shared manufacturing, engineering, software development, field maintenance and customer service to drive growth and cost savings after the transaction closes.  Inspired further expects to reduce capital deployed in the pub gaming sector following the closing of the transaction, as the sector continues its ongoing digital transformation.

Complementary Businesses Leveraging Core Competencies

Inspired plans to draw on the core strengths of Inspired and NTG to broaden offerings, bring differentiated gaming products to new sectors and geographies, accelerate key growth initiatives and offer enhanced capabilities, systems, field service and content.  The addition of NTG is expected to help diversify Inspired's UK business and expand into contiguous customer segments with very little overlap of existing customers. Inspired's position and expertise in server based gaming is expected to accelerate NTG's development initiatives to transition the pub gaming sector from analog to digital gaming machines.

 

Inspired and NTG are both known for their product innovation and creative content. Together, the companies expect to offer an expansive combined game and machine portfolio to customers. Inspired and NTG are also well positioned to capitalize on further converting NTG's game library for online deployment.

Transaction Terms and Execution

Inspired has agreed to acquire NTG for the EUR equivalent of US$120 million, subject to certain customary adjustments.  This consideration represents a multiple of approximately 5.5x NTG's pre-synergy Adjusted EBITDA of £17.1 million, or $21.7 million[2], for the 12-month period ended December 31, 2018, and 3.5x after adjusting for the mid-point of estimated run-rate annual synergies of £9.6 million to £10.6 million, or $12.3 million to $13.3 million, as if they were achieved January 1, 2018.

The acquisition, which is subject to the approvals of regulatory authorities and other customary closing conditions, is expected to close during the third quarter of 2019.  In conjunction with the proposed transaction, Inspired is expected to refinance its existing indebtedness with a new £220 million GBP-equivalent term loan and £20 million revolving credit facility.  Inspired has obtained committed financing for the transaction, and the transaction is not subject to a financing contingency. The committed financing is expected to result in a reduction in cost of debt capital.

"The proposed financing is at a lower interest rate than our existing debt and is a major step in improving Inspired's capital structure," said Stewart Baker, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Inspired.  "Pro forma for the acquisition, adjusting for the mid-point of estimated run-rate annual synergies, the proposed financing implies net leverage of 3.0x[3].  It will position us with a stronger balance sheet and extended maturities, while also reducing our cost of capital which we believe will allow us to have more flexibility to capitalize on meaningful opportunities to grow our business."  

Casino Operations

The casino assets of Astra Games Limited are not included in the potential transaction.  At or prior to the closing of the Acquisition, Astra will transfer to Novomatic UK Gaming UK Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of NOVOMATIC GROUP, assets to the extent related to its casino operations.

Financial and Legal Advisory

Nomura served as financial advisor to Inspired. Sidley Austin LLP and Addleshaw Goddard LLP served as legal advisors to Inspired.  Nomura and Macquarie Capital have provided financing commitments to support the transaction.

The Office of the Executive Chairman will execute the day-to-day management of the Company.

In connection with the formation of the Office of the Executive Chairman, Brooks Pierce has been named the Company's President and Chief Operating Officer. Mr. Pierce recently joined the Company as Senior Vice President, North America. He has over 25 years of experience in the gaming industry. He joins established Company executives Weil, Silvers and Baker in the new Office of Executive Chairman. Also in connection with the formation of the Office of the Executive Chairman, the Company's CFO, Stewart Baker, has been promoted to the position of Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

The Company also announced that Luke Alvarez, President and Chief Executive Officer, is departing the Inspired group, under terms being finalized. Executive Chairman Lorne Weil said, "I am grateful to Luke for his leadership of Inspired since its founding and during its rapid growth in its inaugural year and a half as a public company. We will miss him, and we wish him every success". The Inspired Board adds its thanks and best wishes. Mr. Alvarez's previous responsibilities will be divided among the members of the Office of the Executive Chairman.

The Company also pre-announced certain summary unaudited financial results for the Second Quarter of its 2018 fiscal year, which ended March 31, 2018. The Company has not completed its financial closing procedures, and its independent registered public accounting firm has not completed its review of the Company's results of operations for that quarter. Nevertheless, based on the Company's initial assessments, it estimates that its consolidated revenue for that quarter will be approximately $37.5 million, representing an increase of approximately 33.5% over the Company's consolidated revenue for the comparable period in the prior year, and that its consolidated Adjusted EBITDA (as defined below) for that quarter will be approximately $12.4 million, representing an increase of approximately 43.4% over the Company's consolidated Adjusted EBITDA for the comparable period in the prior year and an increase of approximately 26.1% over the Company's consolidated Adjusted EBITDA for the First Quarter of its 2018 fiscal year. These estimates exceed the quarterly results that the Company budgeted for itself in 2017, at the beginning of its 2018 fiscal year.

These estimates are preliminary and the Company's actual results may differ materially from these estimates, including as a result of the completion of the Company's quarter-end financial closing procedures, any adjustments that may result from the review of the Company's consolidated financial statements for the quarter by its independent registered public accounting firm and other developments that may arise between now and the time the consolidated financial results for the quarter are finalized and publicly reported in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. See "Forward-Looking Statements", below. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. For our definition of the measure and its reconciliation to net loss, see "Non-GAAP Financial Measures", below. The Company undertakes no obligation to make future disclosures regarding its performance against internal budgets.

Mr. Weil concluded, "I believe the outlook for the Company is strong and I look forward to continuing to work with the leadership team, the Board and our incredibly talented employees as we execute on our strategic priorities as a best-in-class company and leader in our industry."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We use certain non-GAAP financial measures, including EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, to analyze our operating performance. We use these financial measures to manage our business on a day-to-day basis. We believe that these measures are commonly used in our industry to measure performance. For these reasons, we believe that our non-GAAP financial measures provide expanded insight into our business, in addition to standard U.S. GAAP financial measures. There are no specific rules or regulations for defining and using non-GAAP financial measures, and as a result the measures we use may not be comparable to measures used by other companies, even if they have similar labels. The presentation of non-GAAP financial information should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, or superior to, financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. You should consider our non-GAAP financial measures in conjunction with our U.S. GAAP financial measures. We define certain of our non-GAAP financial measures as follows:

EBITDA is defined as net loss excluding depreciation and amortization, interest expense, interest income and income tax expense.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net loss excluding depreciation and amortization, interest expense, interest income and income tax expense, and other additional exclusions and adjustments. Such additional excluded amounts include stock-based compensation U.S. GAAP charges where the associated liability is expected to be settled in stock, and changes in the value of earnout liabilities and income and expenditure in relation to legacy portions of the business (being those portions where trading no longer occurs) including closed defined benefit pension schemes. Additional adjustments are made for items considered outside the normal course of business, including (1) restructuring costs, which include charges attributable to employee severance, management changes, restructuring and integration (2) merger and acquisition costs and (3) gains or losses not in the ordinary course of business.

We believe Adjusted EBITDA, when considered along with other performance measures, is a particularly useful performance measure, because it focuses on certain operating drivers of the business, including sales growth, operating costs, selling and administrative expense and other operating income and expense. We believe Adjusted EBITDA can provide a more complete understanding of our operating results and the trends to which we are subject, and an enhanced overall understanding of our financial performance and prospects for the future. Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of liquidity or cash flows from operations or a measure comparable to net income or loss, because it does not take into account certain aspects of our operating performance (for example, it excludes non-recurring gains and losses which are not deemed to be a normal part of underlying business activities). Our use of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to the use by other companies of similarly termed measures. Management compensates for these limitations by using Adjusted EBITDA as only one of several measures for evaluating our operating performance. In addition, capital expenditures, which affect depreciation and amortization, interest expense, and income tax benefit (expense), are evaluated separately by management.

"We are extremely pleased with this key milestone for our business" said Inspired President and Chief Executive Officer Luke Alvarez. "We launched in Nevada late in 2016; we signed our first US lottery contract for Virtual Sports early in 2017; and in October at G2E we announced our new 1st Down Football product, which we expect to launch in 2018. Going live in New Jersey is a major next step in the expansion of our business into North America."

"We are thrilled to have achieved this important step in our North American strategy," said Inspired Executive Chairman Lorne Weil.  Mr. Weil continued, "New Jersey will serve as an important showcase for our Virtual Sports products, as additional states seek to bring this exciting offering to market."

"Virtual Sports betting is now available in New Jersey – online – and we're delighted to be the first (and only) player in the industry to offer this in North America," said Lucy Buckley, Inspired's Vice President of Interactive.  Ms. Buckley continued, "Our premium products have demonstrated an ability to drive incremental revenues for our customers globally, and we believe the launch of Virtual Sports will have an even greater impact in a market that does not offer wagering products for sports fans."  Ms. Buckley concluded, "Based on over a decade of experience, we are confident that Virtual Sports will appeal to both current casino players and a new audience that are not currently customers of New Jersey's casinos.  Furthermore, we believe Virtual Sports will be an essential acquisition tool and companion products for the potential addition of live sports betting in New Jersey and beyond."
