Aristocrat Leisure Limited (ASX: ALL) today announced its financial results for the 12 months ended 30 September 2022.

Aristocrat delivered a high quality result, with strong revenue and profit growth reflecting sustained investment in top-performing product portfolios, differentiating capabilities, increased operational diversification and business resilience.

Normalised profit after tax and before amortisation of acquired intangibles (NPATA) of $1,099.3 million represents an increase of 27% in reported terms, and 20% in constant currency, compared to the prior corresponding period (PCP). This was driven by exceptional performance in North American Gaming Operations and global Outright Sales, despite supply chain disruptions and mixed operating conditions across key markets.

Aristocrat Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Trevor Croker, said “Aristocrat’s performance underlines the ongoing implementation of our growth strategy. Throughout the year, we continued to invest in competitive product portfolios to drive further share growth across key segments, greater operational diversification and deeper business capability.

“Aristocrat delivered an increase in revenues of almost 18% year on year, and an annual profit of $1.1 billion that exceeded our 2019 financial year performance by approximately 23%. This highlights the strength of our post-COVID recovery and our ability to execute in a challenging environment.

“Strong performance in Aristocrat Gaming more than offset headwinds in the Pixel United business, again highlighting the increasing diversification and resilience of our Group.

“We have made further progress in our ‘build and buy’ strategy to scale in online RMG, with the launch of our new business, Anaxi. While we are focusing first on the North American i-Gaming vertical, we ultimately aim to be the leading gaming platform within the global online RMG industry. We will continue to invest behind this key adjacent growth opportunity as we build Anaxi over the medium-term.

“Aristocrat took significant steps forward in leadership and capability, while continuing to execute against our ambitious ESG commitments. This included preparatory work to allow us to set a science-based emissions reduction target for the Group in calendar 2023. In addition, we made progress in our responsible gameplay agenda, rolled out an enhanced anti-modern slavery training programme and achieved an above-benchmark employee engagement score for the year.

“Our performance highlights the incredible resilience and commitment of our team of over 7,500 people around the world. I want to thank each of our people for their hard work, and their care for each other, as we navigated the conflict in Ukraine and other challenges across the year.

“As we look ahead, we believe that Aristocrat’s outstanding product portfolios, growing operational resilience and capability, along with a highly engaged team and strong culture, positions us well to maintain our momentum despite uncertain conditions,” Mr Croker concluded.


FINANCIAL SUMMARY

Group revenue increased to $5.6 billion, representing a 17.7% increase in reported terms and 12.0% in constant currency compared to the PCP.

Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortisation (EBITDA) of $1,850.9 million was 20% higher on a reported basis and 14% higher on a constant currency basis compared to the PCP.

Strong operating cash flows and superior financial fundamentals were maintained, ensuring the business retains full strategic optionality and the ability to fund both organic investment and inorganic acceleration options.

The Group’s balance sheet maintained the business’ optionality, with a net cash position of $564 million and liquidity of $3.8 billion at 30 September 2022.

The Directors have authorised a final fully franked dividend of 26.0 cps (A$171.5 million)2 for the period ended 30 September 2022, taking the full year fully franked dividends to 52.0cps (A$345.3 million)2. The record and payment dates for the final dividend are 1 December 2022 and 16 December 2022, respectively.

Cash of $660 million was appropriately returned to shareholders through dividends and onmarket share buy-back, in line with the Group’s established capital allocation framework.

 

OPERATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS

Aristocrat’s portfolio of scaled, world-class Gaming and Pixel United assets continued to grow and diversify over the 12 months to 30 September 2022, off the back of ongoing investment and high quality execution.

This was driven by exceptional performance in North American Gaming Operations and global Outright Sales, despite supply chain disruptions and mixed operating conditions across key markets.

Pixel United delivered a resilient performance in a challenging environment, as overall mobile bookings moderated post COVID-driven peaks in the PCP.

Through the second half, Aristocrat continued to protect its people and business in Ukraine, providing comprehensive support to employees. Around three quarters of our people were assisted to relocate to safer places within Ukraine or abroad. Operational disruptions were minimised by leveraging capability across the Pixel United business, with new studios opened in Poland, Spain and Canada, and Ukraine utilisation rates were approaching pre-conflict levels at period end.

Aristocrat made significant progress in executing its ‘build and buy’ strategy to scale in online RMG, with the launch of its new business, Anaxi. Online RMG is a material growth and diversification opportunity that will provide further channels for the distribution of the Group’s world-leading content.

The Group continued to invest strongly in product and technology, along with innovation, operational excellence and customer engagement, to drive further share growth across key markets, segments and game genres. Design and Development (D&D) investment remained at a market-leading 12%, and disciplined User Acquisition (UA) was also delivered.

Highlights for the period included: Aristocrat Gaming:

• Strong revenue growth across Americas and ANZ led by increasing product portfolio depth and strength, with Class III Premium installed base growing by 14.0% to 31,595 units and Class III and Class II FPD increasing by 8.5% to US$55.78;

• Americas margin expanded 2.7 percentage points to 56.1%, driven by revenue growth and strong management of the installed base, more than offsetting higher input costs driven by supply chain challenges;

• Americas Outright Sales units up 66%, fuelled by larger customer capital commitments and increased product penetration, with MarsXTM and MarsXTM Portrait cabinets driving Average Selling Price up 8%; and

• Expansion into attractive adjacent markets continues, with growth in VLT and Washington CDS, and entry into Kentucky Historical Horse Racing and New York Lottery.

Pixel United:

• Gained further share overall and maintained its status as a Top 5 mobile games publisher in Tier-1 western markets3, with 6 of the top 100 mobile games in the US across multiple genres at 30 September 2022;

• Retained leading positions in key genres, including #1 position in the Social Slots segment, #2 in the broader Social Casino genre, #1 in the Squad RPG (Role-Playing Games) segment and #3 in the Casual Merge segment according to industry data (Sensor Tower);

• Average Bookings Per Daily Active User (ABPDAU) grew 11%, driven by improved performance in Social Casino and RPG, Strategy & Action;

• Moved proactively to cease operating its mobile games in Russia during the year. This market historically contributed approximately 3% of annualised Pixel United bookings, primarily in the Plarium portfolio; and

• Continued to strengthen and diversify operations for future growth, including opening new studios in Poland, Spain and Canada, and bringing further game development capabilities to the business.

 

OUTLOOK

Aristocrat expects to deliver NPATA growth over the full year to 30 September 2023, assuming no material change in economic and industry conditions, reflecting:

• Continued strong revenue and profit growth from Aristocrat Gaming, underpinned by market-leading positions and recurring revenue drivers in Gaming Operations;

• Lower growth in bookings and profit from Pixel United, compared to recent years; and

• Further investment in Anaxi, to support our online RMG ambitions.

Over the medium-term, Aristocrat aims to:

• Continue to gain market share in all key segments;

• Deliver high quality, profitable growth;

• Continuously invest in D&D to improve competitiveness and breadth of product;

• Invest to diversify our business in line with strategy; and

• Effectively manage capital to support long-term growth and maximise shareholder returns.

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Galaxy Gaming, Inc. (OTCQB: GLXZ), a developer and distributor of casino table games and enhanced systems for land-based casinos and iGaming content, announced today its financial results for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2022.

Financial Highlights

Q3 2022 vs. Q3 2021

Revenue increased 12% to $5,907K
Adjusted EBITDA decreased 5% to $2,350K
Net loss of $(699)K vs. net income of $874K
9 Months 2022 vs. 9 Months 2021

Revenue increased 22% to $17,502K
Adjusted EBITDA increased 17% to $7,382K
Net loss of $(1,828)K vs. net income of $1,513K
Balance Sheet Changes (vs. December 31, 2021)

Cash increased 20% to $19,275K
Total long-term debt1 (gross) decreased to $59,550K from $60,500K
Stockholders’ deficit increased to $(18,506)K from $(17,286)K
Executive Comments

“Despite the continued strengthening of the US dollar, we had an excellent quarter,” said Todd Cravens, President and CEO. “On a constant currency basis, revenue increased by 19% in the quarter and 27% in the first nine months vs. the same periods in 2021. As compared to Q2 2022, sequential revenue growth was 6% on a constant currency basis. But the most newsworthy event happened after the end of the quarter at G2E – the gaming show held annually in Las Vegas. We introduced several new games and new technologies that were very well received by clients. In fact, we already have several commitments to trial some of these new products.

“Finally, at the end of the quarter, in consideration of a $2 million cash payment, we eliminated the obligation to make contingent consideration payments to the original seller of the intellectual property supporting our Bonus Craps™ side bet. Based on the run rate in Q3, this should save us around $315K on an annual basis and potentially more as Bonus Craps deployments increase.”

1 Includes current portion.

“Exchange rates, interest rates and inflation rates worsened in Q3,” stated Harry Hagerty, Galaxy’s CFO. “The dollar continued to appreciate versus the Euro and the British Pound, and the floating rate upon which our interest expense is calculated increased by 138 basis points in the quarter. Inflation continues to affect us as most of our expenses are denominated in US dollars, and the current quarter reflects a higher-than-normal level of professional services expenses as we strengthen our financial systems and our intellectual property protection. But despite the challenges, the Company is performing well, as Todd’s comments about revenue in constant currency and our G2E performance attest. Our balance sheet improved in the quarter with increased cash balances and modestly reduced debt balances, and we were comfortably in compliance with the financial covenant in our Fortress credit agreement.

“The worsening rates environment requires us to modestly modify our guidance for the remainder of the current year,” Hagerty added. “We now forecast revenue in the midpoint of the previously expressed range of $22.5-$23.5 million and Adjusted EBITDA at the low end of the previously expressed range of $10-11 million. This forecast assumes no new lockdowns from COVID-19 or the equivalent, no worsening of the impact to our business from the war in Ukraine, and no economic recession.”

On November 11, 2022, the Board of Directors reauthorized repurchases of the Company’s common stock of up to $750,000, subject to the Company remaining in compliance with the provisions of the Term Loan Credit Agreement and, in particular, the $750,000 restricted payments basket.

Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results
• Total revenue increased approximately 16% year-over-year to $78.3 million. Table Products revenue advanced 30% versus the
prior year, reflecting outsized growth within our progressive installed base, growing demand for our PAX S single-deck card
shuffler, further adoption of our AGS Arsenal site license offering, and the Q1 2022 Lucky Lucky side bet acquisition. EGM
revenue increased by more than 15% year-over-year, paced by EGM sales revenue growth of over 50%. Global EGM sales
topped 1,000 units for the first time since Q4 2019, reflecting successful execution of our strategy to broaden our global
customer account penetration, continued recovery in North American replacement unit demand and complementary EGM sales
into international markets. Interactive revenue grew to $2.6 million in Q3 2022 as we continue to benefit from outsized growth
within our Real Money Gaming ("RMG") business. Total revenue improved approximately 2% over the $76.6 million delivered
in Q2 2022, representing our seventh consecutive quarter of sequential total revenue growth.
• Gaming operations, or recurring revenue, increased 6% year-over-year to $56.6 million. Domestic EGM recurring revenue
improved by 4% versus the prior year, topping $45 million for the second consecutive quarter. Our growing premium game
mix, improved core content execution, further implementation of optimization initiatives, and a stable domestic gaming
macroeconomic backdrop boosted our Q3 2022 Domestic EGM recurring revenue performance. International EGM recurring
revenue advanced 16% year-over-year, paced by the consistent macroeconomic recovery underway throughout Mexico. To
that end, International EGM recurring revenue has now increased sequentially for nine consecutive quarters. Table Products
recurring revenue increased by more than 25% year-over-year to a record $3.8 million, supported by growth across all product
verticals. Table Products revenue has also increased sequentially for nine consecutive quarters. In aggregate, recurring revenue
accounted for over 70% of our consolidated Q3 2022 revenue mix.
• We generated $476 thousand of net income in Q3 2022 compared to a net loss of $1.8 million in the prior year period. The
year-over-year increase in our reported net income was predominantly driven by our strong year-over-year revenue growth,
which contributed to Q3 2022 operating income of $9.0 million compared to $7.0 million in Q3 2021. Q3 2022 marked the
second consecutive quarter in which we were able to generate positive net income.
• Total Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP)(1) increased 8% year-over-year to $34.5 million compared to $31.9 million in Q3 2021.
Year-over-year Adjusted EBITDA growth within the Table Products and EGM segments of approximately 57% and 6%,
respectively, was partially offset by a decline within the Interactive segment, as we continued to incur modest incremental
expense in order to accelerate the flow of new AGS game content into the North American RMG channel over the coming
quarters. Adjusted EBITDA increased modestly on a quarterly sequential basis relative to the $34.1 million delivered in
Q2 2022.
• Total Adjusted EBITDA margin (non-GAAP)(1) was 44.0% compared to 47.4% in Q3 2021. The year-over-year change in our
Adjusted EBITDA margin was predominantly driven by a greater mix of EGM unit sales revenue, which carries a lower gross
margin as compared to EGM gaming operations revenue, further post-COVID normalization in our discretionary business
operating expenses and market-level inflationary cost fluctuations. Total Adjusted EBITDA margin compressed modestly
versus the 44.6% achieved in Q2 2022, largely a function of unfavorable changes in revenue and product mix.
