Convenience Store Operator Continues Solution Evolution with Plans for Nearly 50% Increase in BOHA! Terminal and App Implementations

HAMDEN, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 4, 2019-- TransAct®Technologies Incorporated (Nasdaq: TACT) (“TransAct” or “the Company”), a global leader in software-driven technology and printing solutions for high-growth markets, today announced the significant expansion of a relationship with a current user of its BOHA!™ software and hardware ecosystem. Pursuant to the expanded agreement, the domestic convenience store operator will deploy a second BOHA! Terminal along with the BOHA! Labeling SaaS-based app and TransAct Enterprise Management System (“TEMS”) at 220 of the 450 locations where these BOHA! solutions are already deployed. The expanded deployment will help TransAct’s customer manage a new food offering they plan to open inside certain existing locations.

Pursuant to this new three-year agreement, the deployment of an additional 220 BOHA! Terminal devices will occur over the next four months. The agreement also includes a commitment for the locations to use TransAct Labels specifically designed to work with the thermal printers featured in the BOHA! Terminal. TransAct believes the annual recurring average revenue per unit (“ARPU”) at these 220 locations will be approximately $1,500 per year. The Company also plans to work with the operator on the evaluation of additional BOHA! apps for potential deployment at a later time.

TransAct first provided its restaurant solutions offerings for this customer last year when the customer deployed TransAct’s prior-generation restaurant solution terminals and non-TransAct software at all of its locations. Following the introduction of the BOHA! ecosystem in March 2019, the customer transitioned its existing terminals at 450 stores to the new BOHA! Terminal alongside the BOHA! Labeling SaaS-based app and TEMS which led to recurring software revenues for TransAct. The additional deployments of BOHA! solutions will further grow the recurring revenue generated from this customer in addition to the benefit of the sale of 220 new BOHA! Terminal units.

Bart C. Shuldman, Chairman and CEO of TransAct Technologies, said, “This expansion of our relationship with an existing BOHA! ecosystem customer is a testament to the measurable improvement our technology provides to foodservice operators. Having worked closely for several years to address this customer’s back-of-house needs, we have gained a tremendous level of insight as to how our newest solutions can help them manage their operations more efficiently and effectively and we have evolved our solution deployments at their locations to meet their changing requirements. We are pleased with the confidence this customer has in the BOHA! solution suite as they embark on an initiative to provide a new, unique food offering inside a large percentage of their stores. We look forward to our ongoing collaboration with this customer as we continue to help them improve performance across their back-of-house operations.”

BOHA! is the first single-vendor solution to combine applications for Inventory Management, Temperature Monitoring of Food and Equipment, Timers, Food Safety Labeling, Food Recalls, Checklists & Procedures, Equipment Service Management and Delivery Management in one fully-integrated platform. Each BOHA! solution combines cloud-based SaaS applications with hardware and accessories to deliver superior results for critical back-of-house operations. BOHA! offers a one-stop solution for restaurants and food service companies to address their current back-of-house operating requirements while providing a future-ready platform capable of addressing back-of-house operations as they continue to evolve. BOHA! Terminal includes TEMS (TransAct Enterprise Management System) to ensure only approved apps and functions are available on the device.

Amidst two awards won on the occasion of the event and a broad portfolio of Winning Technology presented within a new stand design, the key highlight for NOVOMATIC at the recent Balkan Entertainment & Gaming Expo (BEGE Expo) 2019 was the great customer interest and excellent footfall at this major gaming event for the region. The local subsidiaries made sure to welcome all visitors and guests in true Austrian style.

At the 12th edition of BEGE Expo, the NOVOMATIC stand welcomed show visitors with a great variety of market-specific offers presented in the most popular cabinets like the PANTHERA™ series, the V.I.P. Lounge™ cabinets and the V.I.P. Eagle™ I 3.32 – with Winning Technology to suit player preferences as well as operators' requirements and economic considerations.

Regional best-sellers have traditionally been multi-game mixes comprising the most popular NOVOMATIC video slot classics – and a variety of these were on display at BEGE: The Legend Gaminator® 1T multi-game edition with 43 legendary titles, Superia Games Premium Mix 2 with 43 games, NOVO LINE™ lnteractive Edition X1 with 30 titles, NOVO LINE™ lnteractive Concurve Edition 4 comprising five games for single screen curve cabinets and lmpera Line™ HD Edition 7 boasting 53 titles. This last powerful package of performers was also the winner of the show organizer's "BEGE EXPO Award" in the "Game Content" category, which the local team was honoured to receive next to an honorary award for the long-term support of the show. Additionally, the lmpera Line™ HD Edition 7 game mix demonstrated the integration of slot and ETG offerings with a live link to a LOTUS ROULETTE™ Pro ETG Roulette installation with six player stations.

Game-synchronized XL LED effects, two 32" HD screens as well as a tilted slant top base featuring a TouchDeck™ player interface are the key features of the V.I.P. Eagle™ I 3.32, which combines all the advantages of a slant top with the high visibility of a stylish upright cabinet. Operators clearly recognized the outstanding potential of this machine as an attractive spotlight on the casino floor. The Lucky Lady character certainly needs no introduction in the international gaming industry – and at BEGE, visitors were delighted to encounter her casting Wild Spells in a game concept that premiered in the region: Lucky Lady's Wild Spell™.

Milos Pejic, NOVOMATIC Regional Manager SEE Gaming Operations, said: “With this year's exhibition stand concept, we have deviated from traditional show concepts and instead brought a touch of Vienna to Sofia. We are very grateful for the excellent customer feedback we received at the show, and the great interest in our portfolio of products and solutions for the Balkan markets. Especially the new V.I.P. Eagle™ I 3.32 cabinet hits a note with the operators of the region and also the Lucky Lady's Wild Spell™ game title ranges high among the visitors' favourites.”
On November 20, key executives and leading casino operators from the Mexican casino industry gathered at the W Hotel in México City for the annual V.I.P. Experience, hosted by the local NOVOMATIC subsidiary NOVOMATIC México. The event has already become a traditional meeting place for customers to join the NOVOMATIC team and get hands-on with the latest novelties presented at G2E in Las Vegas, just a month prior.

The fourth V.I.P. Experience took place on November 20 in Mexico City, in one of the city’s most exclusive hotels, W Hotel. Some 100 guests and leading operators of the Mexican industry were welcomed in a beautifully decorated Book of Ra™-style Egyptian setting to enjoy food and drinks, great company as well as an exclusive presentation of the latest NOVOMATIC product news they may have missed in Las Vegas. Jens Einhaus, NOVOMATIC VP of International Sales, Europe & The Americas and Max Bauer, NOVOMATIC regional VP of Latin America and the Caribbean joined the local Mexican team headed by Thomas Borgstedt, Managing Director and Judith Barrientos, Commercial & Marketing Manager NOVOMATIC México to discuss products and business strategies with the guests.

One of the highlights on display was the THUNDER CASH™ Link featuring the title Empress of the Pyramids™ in the elegant PANTHERA™ Curve 1.43 cabinet. This Linked Progressive guarantees hours of entertainment with thrilling feature gameplay and exciting jackpot thrills. Another title that perfectly blended in with the evening’s Egyptian theme, was Princess of the Nile™, part of NOVOMATIC Americas’ PAYDAY™ Standalone Progressives series, presented in the PANTHERA™ 2.27 cabinet. Also other popular Egyptian titles such as Pyramid Fortunes™ and Goddess Rising™ were on display – as was a selection of titles for the thriving Mexican Bingo segment, including Bruno Bingo™ or the Lucky Lady™ Bingo, presented in the V.I.P. Lounge™ cabinet.

The friendly gathering in a relaxed atmosphere continued into the night, as a DJ filled the room with music and guests enjoyed conversation and cocktails. Several raffles took place with prizes like headphones, Bluetooth speakers, a go pro camera and smart home devices.

Judith Barrientos said: “It is our customers, who really make this event a tradition and a success. We would like to thank them for joining us for this great evening, and also for their trust and support. We saw great interest in the products we brought here, especially in the THUNDER CASH™ Link and the PAYDAY™ Progressives. This kind of product continues to be a big topic in the US, and this is very much reflected in the Mexican market. With our portfolio, we can offer our customers an excellent choice of titles that will certainly inspire their guests – and more is to come in 2020, when NOVOMATIC will celebrate its 40th anniversary…”

On Sunday, November 17, the NOVOMATIC Group celebrated the opening of its second casino operation in North Macedonia. The casino complies with the highest Responsible Gaming standards, using the latest biometric technology from NOVOMATIC Biometric Systems (NBS).

The casino is located in the building complex that houses the Marriott Hotel Skopje, which opened in 2016 directly on the main square of the North Macedonian capital. In addition to the 164-room hotel, the premises are now home to a state-of-the-art casino with an exclusive ambience and state-of-the-art gaming equipment across four levels. In the immediate vicinity are the lively pedestrian area as well as numerous attractions of the city centre.

Since the opening of NOVOMATIC Group's largest casino, the Casino Hotel FlaminGo Gevgelija in 2014 and its expansion in 2016, NOVOMATIC has firmly established its position as a casino operator in the Balkans. With the new Casino FlaminGo Skopje, the Group has now further expanded and strengthened its casino expertise in the region.

Modern Responsible Gaming
After about eight months of restructuring work – from April to November 2019 – and investments in the millions, the casino has now opened its doors: featuring some 2,600 sqm with 290 state-ofthe- art gaming machines, a generous live gaming area with 12 tables (6 Roulette tables, 6 card tables), a large bar with an extensive range of snacks and the "Cigars' Bar", where guests can take a break in a relaxed atmosphere. More than 130 employees guarantee a smooth operation and premium service.

Fulfilling the highest Responsible Gaming standards, Casino FlaminGO Skopje is the first casino in North Macedonia to be equipped with NOVOMATIC Biometric Systems (NBS): The gaming regulation requires casino visitors to register upon their initial visit to a gaming venue. Revisiting guests can pass the casino access control by means of database verification by fingerprint. This ensures fully automated player protection processes as well as a guaranteed protection of minors through e.g. the denial of access for underage guests or for players who are blocked due to a display of problematic gaming behaviour.

Opening concert
More than 800 guests – including the Mayor of the city of Skopje Petre Shilegov and the Austrian ambassador to North Macedonia Dr Georg Woutsas – came to the big casino opening and were treated to a varied entertainment program as well as culinary delights. Before the official Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, Dr Bernd Oswald, NOVOMATIC Chairman of the Supervisory Board, welcomed the guests and extended the best wishes on behalf of NOVOMATIC founder Professor Johann F. Graf.

To celebrate its opening, the Casino FlaminGo Skopje invited the whole city for a free concert of the legendary band "Bijelo Dugme" and local superstar Goran Bregovi? on the main square, right in front of the casino entrance. Accompanied by the raging applause of about 25,000 enthusiastic fans, the band played one hit after another.

Regional Manager Milos Pejic, who developed the project together with Aleksandar Simovi?, said: “With this casino, we have definitely set a new standard in the region.”
