Executive Comments

Gary A. Vecchiarelli, Galaxy’s CFO commented, "I am happy to announce the third quarter represents yet another period of incremental growth for Galaxy Gaming.  In the past 4 years, or 16 quarters, we have been able to achieve growth to our recurring revenues 15 times.  Our business model has tremendous operating leverage, which is highlighted by the fact that approximately 70 cents of every new dollar in revenue between Q2 and Q3 of this year went to the bottom line.”  Mr. Vecchiarelli added, “Our operating expenses are up significantly over the prior year primarily due to increased legal and regulatory costs.  However, we see these expenses decreasing as events wind down in the coming quarters.”

Robert B. Saucier, Galaxy’s CEO added, “The continued roll-out of our expanding product line is resulting in increases in market share and revenues.  As our newer products gain a foundation of market acceptance in casinos, we believe they will serve to further propel our momentum and support our objective of increasing future recurring revenues.”

Financial Summary

Revenue.  Total revenue for the third quarter increased 9% to $2,754,848, over the same quarter 2014.  This increase is primarily due to additional placement of premium games and expansion into new territories.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2015 compared to the same period 2014, revenues increased 11% to $8,021,541.  The increase for the nine month period was primarily due to the increased focus on premium games and expansion into new territories.  Between the third quarter 2015 and second quarter 2015, total revenues increased 3% to $2,754,848.  These increases were due to an increase in activity in the United Kingdom and additional placements of premium and side bet games.  The annualized recurring revenue run-rate as of September 30, 2015 is $10,991,096.

Total costs and expenses.  Expenses for the third quarter 2015 increased 12% to $2,295,563, over the same quarter 2014.  The increase in 2015 is primarily due to increases in selling, general & administrative expenses, driven by increased legal and compliance costs.  Our professional expenses increased significantly due to ongoing litigation with competitors.  We also recognized increases in regulatory and compliance fees due to the licensure process with California and Nevada.  For the nine month period ended September 30, 2015 compared to the same period 2014, total costs and expenses increased 18% to $6,761,866.  This increase was also due to the increased legal and regulatory costs, combined with the fact 2015 represents a full nine months at our new and larger headquarters location. Total costs and expenses remained relatively flat in the third quarter 2015 compared to the second quarter 2015.   

Net income.  Net income for the third quarter 2015 was $119,706, which was an increase of 38% from the same quarter 2014.  The increase was primarily due to the increases in our recurring revenues.  For the nine month period ended September 30, 2015 compared to the same period 2014, the net income decreased 27% to $254,138.  The primary driver of this decrease was the increases in selling, general & administrative expenses.  The net income in the third quarter 2015, increased 67% to $119,707 compared to the second quarter of 2015.  This increase was the result of revenue growth between the recent quarters. 

Adjusted EBITDA.  Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure (described below), for the third quarter 2015 decreased 3% to $894,112, compared to the same quarter 2014.  Higher selling, general & administrative expenses contributed to the decrease in Adjusted EBITDA between the periods.  For the nine month period ended September 30, 2015, Adjusted EBITDA decreased 11% to $2,584,141 compared to the same period ended 2014.  This decrease was primarily due to lower net income as a result of the increased selling, general & administrative expenses.  Adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter 2015 increased 5% to $894,112 compared to the second quarter in 2015.  This increase was primarily driven by the growth in recurring revenues between the recent quarters.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

Galaxy Gaming, Inc. (the “Company”) prepares its consolidated financial statements in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP").  In addition to disclosing financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP, the Company discloses information regarding Adjusted EBITDA, which differs from the term EBITDA as it is commonly used.  In addition to adjusting net income (loss) from continuing operations to exclude taxes, interest, and depreciation and amortization, Adjusted EBITDA also excludes noncash charges, certain non-recurring charges and share-based compensation expense.  EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of performance defined in accordance with GAAP.  However, Adjusted EBITDA is used internally in planning and evaluating the Company's operating performance.  Accordingly, management believes that disclosure of this metric offers investors, bankers and other stakeholders an additional view of the Company's operations that, when coupled with the GAAP results, provides a more complete understanding of the Company's financial results.

Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net loss or to net cash used in operating activities as a measure of operating results or of liquidity.  It may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies, and it excludes financial information that some may consider important in evaluating the Company's performance.  A reconciliation of GAAP net loss from continuing operations to Adjusted EBITDA is included in the accompanying financial schedules.
