Growth in Games and FinTech Segments Drives Quarterly Record Recurring Revenue

Raises Full-year Revenue and Earnings Guidance

Las Vegas – November 3, 2021 - Everi Holdings Inc. (NYSE: EVRI) (“Everi” or the “Company”), a premier
provider of land-based and digital casino gaming content and products, financial technology and player loyalty solutions, today announced third quarter results for the period ended September 30, 2021.

Third Quarter 2021 Financial Highlights and Updated Full Year Outlook

As the third quarter 2020 financial results were significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, Everi believes a more meaningful comparison for its 2021 third quarter results and an indication of its growth is to the 2019 third quarter results, for which revenues and Adjusted EBITDA were higher than in the 2020 third quarter.

Financial results for the 2021, 2020 and 2019 third quarter periods are presented in the
Consolidated, Games and Financial Technology Solutions comparative results tables below.

• Revenues rose 25% to $168.3 million, compared to $134.6 million in the 2019 third quarter.

• Operating income more than doubled to a record $55.1 million compared to $27.3 million in
the 2019 third quarter. Net income, inclusive of $34.4 million in pre-tax costs for the extinguishment of debt associated with the Company's refinancing of its outstanding debt in the quarter, decreased to $6.7 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, compared to $9.3 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, in the 2019 third quarter.

• Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, increased 40% to $90.6 million, compared to $64.7 million in the 2019 third quarter.

• Free Cash Flow, a non-GAAP financial measure, increased more than fivefold to a quarterly
record of $56.3 million, compared to $11.1 million in the 2019 third quarter.

• Company now expects full year revenue of $645 million to $653 million, net income of $98
million to $100 million, Adjusted EBITDA of $342 million to $346 million and Free Cash Flow
of $155 million to $160 million.


Michael Rumbolz, Chief Executive Officer of Everi, said, “The growth in our third quarter revenue, operating earnings and Free Cash Flow demonstrate the substantial ongoing momentum in our financial performance. We expect that further growth across both our Games and FinTech segments will continue for the remainder of this year and into 2022 and beyond. We expect to continue to benefit from the expansion of our installed base of leased gaming units, growth in ship share, same-store increases in financial access transactions, and the ongoing organic growth of our loyalty and regulatory compliance solutions. We believe the ongoing 2 strength across both businesses and our deep pipeline of new offerings will drive consistent earnings and revenue growth as well as the continued generation of significant Free Cash Flow.

“The favorable customer reaction to our newest products at G2E® last month bolsters our confidence in our near- and long-term outlook. For our Games segment, the scale of our newest content continues to increase with well-received new themes introduced across the spectrum of premium video, premium mechanical, standard video, standard mechanical, and wide-area progressive (“WAP”) machines. New premium games such as Cashnado™ and Smokin’ Hot Stuff Wicked Wheel Fire and Ice® further demonstrated to customers our commitment to offer both new themes and support of our popular hit franchises, while our unique for sale Cha Ching™ and Moneyline™ games for the high-performing Empire Flex® portrait cabinet highlight the creativity and innovation of our game design teams. Everi’s development teams continue to create products that raise the level of gaming entertainment and thereby offer an attractive return on the investments our customers make in our gaming products.

“Our portfolio of integrated FinTech products and services is more comprehensive and provides more value to casino operators than ever before and our newest offerings were similarly met with very favorable response at G2E. Our omni-channel, digital Cashclub Wallet® was a highlight of the show, including our demonstration of its seamless integration with our mobile-player loyalty offering. New products, such as MetersXpress™ and PitXpress™, which extends our Digital Neighborhood to the casino pit, provide key process efficiencies. With the strength and depth of our newest products and core offerings, Everi is favorably positioned to execute on our significant opportunities s to gain market share and deliver consistent future growth across our Games and FinTech businesses.”
