Michael Rumbolz, President and Chief Executive Officer of Everi, commented, “Our operating momentum continued in the 2017 third quarter as revenues improved 11% and Adjusted EBITDA rose 3% year over year.  The benefits from our successful execution against our strategic operating priorities is also evident in our year-to-date performance as revenue and Adjusted EBITDA growth in both our Payments and Games segments has resulted in consolidated revenue and Adjusted EBITDA growth of 13% and 9%, respectively, compared to the first nine months of 2016.  Our progress and improved financial position creates the opportunity for Everi to pursue activities in the debt markets that if completed will help accelerate the growth of our free cash flow generation.

“The investments and process changes we have made in our Games business are driving consistent advancements in the quality and diversity of our product portfolio as our development teams continue to expand the segments of the gaming floor our games address and the level of entertainment value they provide to players.  As a result, we are generating higher year over year unit sales, and we are beginning to see momentum for installed base growth and daily win per unit improvement.  With new products such as our Class II wide-area and Class III local-area progressives featuring licensed content, new form factors being introduced at a faster rate, and our continued focus on innovation, Everi competes more favorably today across the full spectrum of electronic gaming entertainment than at any time in our history. We expect this will help drive growth for our installed base unit count, our daily win per unit, and in our annual ship share over the next several years. 

“We also continue to invest in Payments product innovation which is further elevating our market position and driving consistent performance, including six consecutive quarters of revenue and Adjusted EBITDA growth.  Our customers increasingly rely on Everi for cash access and compliance solutions that help them improve their operating efficiency and provide more cash to the casino floor.  This has allowed our Payments segment to benefit from ongoing growth in same-store gaming revenue and from new business wins related to new casino openings and competitive takeouts.  As our data-driven Payments solutions become more fully integrated throughout our customers’ operations, we are creating more long-term opportunities for growth.” 

Mr. Rumbolz concluded, “We recently completed the most successful Global Gaming Expo (“G2E”) in the Company’s history with very positive customer feedback regarding the level of new product innovations we introduced for both our Games and Payments product offerings.  Our focus on technological innovation to meet the gaming entertainment and cash access needs of our customers and their players, combined with the operating discipline that we have demonstrated, clearly have us on the right path to generate higher free cash flow in future periods and create incremental value for our shareholders.”

Intention to Reprice Term Loan and Evaluation of Unsecured Notes Refinancing

Everi also announced today that it intends to capitalize on its improved financial position and favorable market conditions to reprice its $820 million Term Loan that is scheduled to mature in 2024.  The Company anticipates that the repricing of its Term Loan will be completed within the next fourteen days.  Everi is also evaluating opportunities to refinance its $350 million 10% Senior Unsecured Notes due 2022.  The goal of these activities is to reduce cash interest costs and to extend the debt maturity profile. There can be no assurance that the Company will complete a repricing of its Term Loan or that it will refinance its Unsecured Notes. 

Randy Taylor, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer for Everi, commented, “Our consistent successful execution against our operating initiatives continues to generate improvements in our financial profile.  As a result, we believe there is an opportunity to follow up the refinancing completed earlier this year with additional actions to further lower our annual cash interest costs.  If we are successful with these actions, the benefit to our future free cash flow generation can be significant as reductions in our annual cash interest expense would further strengthen the foundation we have established to achieve accelerating free cash flow generation going forward.”

2017 Third Quarter Games Segment Highlights and Recent Developments:

  • Revenues were $55.4 million in the third quarter of 2017 compared to $56.2 million in the third quarter of 2016. The TournEvent of Champions® slot tournament, which is held annually at G2E, occurred in the fourth quarter of 2017 compared to the third quarter in the prior year. As a result, approximately $2.0 million of related revenue that was recognized in the third quarter of 2016 will this year be recognized in the fourth quarter of 2017.
      
  • Revenues from gaming operations were $39.1 million in the third quarter of 2017 compared to $41.4 million in the prior-year period. The decline is primarily attributable to the above noted timing of the TournEvent of Champions® event.
      
  • The installed base at September 30, 2017 declined 72 units year over year to 13,215 units but increased 273 units on a quarterly sequential basis primarily driven by growth in premium units. Premium units rose 30% year over year and 15% on a quarterly sequential basis to 2,348 units. The non-Oklahoma installed base increased 8% year over year and 5% on a quarterly sequential basis.
      
  • Estimated daily win per unit (“DWPU”) was $27.13 for the third quarter of 2017 compared to $27.53 in the prior-year period representing the lowest year-over-year decline in seven quarters. As expected, the recent growth in the installed base from premium units, as well as in non-Oklahoma units, is offsetting the impact on DWPU from the removal of higher-performing third-party Class III units from the installed base.
        
  • Revenues from the New York Lottery business were $4.7 million in the third quarter of 2017 compared to $4.6 million in the prior-year period.
      
  • The Company generated revenues of $16.3 million in the third quarter of 2017 from the sale of 817 gaming units. In the prior-year period, the Company generated revenues of $14.8 million from the sale of 783 gaming units.

2017 Third Quarter Payments Segment Highlights: 

  • Revenues increased approximately 15.6% to $191.9 million in the third quarter of 2017 compared to $166.0 million in the prior-year period. The growth reflects segment-wide strength and included growth in core cash access revenue as a result of same store transactions and dollars processed increases and surcharge and service fee increases implemented by customers. Payments segment revenue also continues to benefit from new customer wins since the third quarter of 2016 and throughout 2017, including new casino openings, competitive takeouts, the expansion of ATM services into Canada, and increases in Everi Compliance revenue. 
      
  • Cash advance revenues increased approximately 18.4% to $74.1 million in the third quarter of 2017 compared to $62.6 million in the prior-year period. 
      
  • ATM revenues increased approximately 19.1% to $101.5 million in the third quarter of 2017 compared to $85.2 million in the prior-year period. 

  • Check services revenues increased approximately 7.8% to $5.5 million in the third quarter of 2017 compared to $5.1 million in the prior-year period. 

  • Other revenues declined $2.2 million to $10.8 million in the third quarter of 2017 as the prior-year period benefited from the sale of approximately 40 kiosks for a new casino opening in Maryland. Revenue from Everi Compliance for the third quarter of 2017 exceeded revenue from the comparable prior year period and year-to-date Everi Compliance revenues are up 34% compared to the first nine months of 2016. 
      

Current 2017 Outlook

Everi now expects 2017 full year Adjusted EBITDA to be at the high end of the previously provided range of $209 million to $212 million.  The Company also provided the following updates on a range of business metrics and assumptions: 

  • The Company has raised its expectation for full year Games segment unit sales to an increase of approximately 20% compared to the 2,954 units sold in 2016.  The Company’s prior expectation was for a 12% - 15% increase in the full year unit sales.  Unit sales for the fourth quarter of 2016 benefited, in part, from the sale of approximately 90 units to new casino openings in New York.  While the Company does not expect a similar level of new casino openings in the 2017 fourth quarter, it does expect positive momentum from G2E will result in fourth quarter unit sales that are comparable to the prior-year fourth quarter sales of 920 units. 
      
  • The installed base for the Games segment at December 31, 2017 is expected to be higher than the reported installed base at December 31, 2016 reflecting, in part, the benefit from growth in the premium unit installed base, including expected growth in Jackpot Lockdown™ Class II wide-area progressive (“WAP”) units as well as new premium licensed brands that will also be offered as Class III local-area progressive games that will be introduced over the remainder of 2017.  The Company does not expect any material additional Class II unit removals from certain California tribal customer facilities, due to changes in their tribal gaming compacts with the state, in the fourth quarter of 2017. 
      
  • Based on the expected growth in the installed base in the 2017 fourth quarter, including the expected growth in placements of higher performing WAP and other premium units, the Company expects DWPU in the fourth quarter of 2017 will approximate the DWPU reported in the prior-year quarter. 
      
  • Fourth quarter Payments segment revenue is expected to increase in the low-double digits year over year and Adjusted EBITDA is expected to grow in the mid-single digits compared to the fourth quarter of 2016.  This assumes sustained performance in the gaming industry and United States economy as a whole.  These growth percentages also reflect the impact of several new casino wins in the second half of 2016 that will anniversary in the second half of 2017. 
       
  • Revenue from the sale and service of fully integrated kiosks and compliance products are expected to be lower in the fourth quarter of 2017 compared to 2016.  These assumptions are reflected in the overall Payments revenue and Adjusted EBITDA growth expectations discussed above. 

  • Capital expenditures in 2017 are expected to exceed the $105 million which was the top end of the previously provided range of $95 million to $105 million.  This expectation includes capital expenditures related to approximately 400 units that will be delivered to a new tribal casino in South Bend, Indiana in the fourth quarter of 2017 and which will begin to generate revenue and will be added to the installed base unit count early in the first quarter of 2018 upon the opening of this casino.  The full year expectation also includes approximately $10.1 million of additional placement fee payments made in the third quarter of 2017.   
      
  • Depreciation expense is expected to be between $46 million and $47 million. 
      
  • Amortization expense is expected to decline significantly from the $94.6 million reported in 2016 to between $70 million and $71 million.  This reduction is the result of certain intangible assets that were recorded as part of the Company’s purchase price allocation from the merger of Everi and Everi Games Holding Inc. becoming fully amortized in 2016. 
      
  • Net Interest expense is estimated to be between $95 million and $96 million, inclusive of Vault Cash interest expense of between $4 million and $5 million and non-cash amortization of debt issuance costs of approximately $6 million for 2017. This estimate does not include any potential interest savings nor any potential loss that could be incurred as a result of the proposed Term Loan repricing or potential refinancing of the Senior Unsecured Notes.  
      
  • The Company expects to record a provision for income tax of between $4 million and $5 million for 2017, which includes cash tax payments of between $1 million and $2 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

In order to enhance investor understanding of the underlying trends in our business, our cash balance and cash available for our operating needs, and to provide for better comparability between periods in different years, we are providing in this press release Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, net cash position and net cash available, which are not measures of our financial performance or position under United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”). Accordingly, these measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, and should be read in conjunction with, our (i) net earnings (loss), operating income (loss), basic or diluted earnings (loss) per share and cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP, with respect to Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin, and (ii) cash and cash equivalents prepared in accordance with GAAP, with respect to net cash position and net cash available.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as earnings (loss) before interest, taxes, loss on extinguishment of debt, depreciation and amortization, non-cash stock compensation expense, accretion of contract rights, separation costs related to the Company’s former CEO, write-down of note receivable and warrant, and loss on sale of the aircraft. We present Adjusted EBITDA as we use this measure to manage our business and consider this measure to be supplemental to our operating performance. We also make certain compensation decisions based, in part, on our operating performance, as measured by Adjusted EBITDA; and our current credit facility and existing senior unsecured notes require us to comply with a consolidated secured leverage ratio that includes performance metrics substantially similar to Adjusted EBITDA. We define Adjusted EBITDA Margin as Adjusted EBITDA divided by revenues.

A reconciliation of the Company’s net loss per GAAP to Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin is included in the Unaudited Reconciliation of Net Loss to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin provided at the end of this release. Additionally, a reconciliation of each segment’s operating income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA is also included. On a segment level, operating income (loss) per GAAP, rather than net earnings (loss) per GAAP, is reconciled to Adjusted EBITDA as the Company does not report net earnings (loss) by segment. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA Margin is provided on a segment level. Management believes that this presentation is meaningful to investors in evaluating the performance of the Company’s segments.

We define (i) net cash position as cash and cash equivalents plus settlement receivables less settlement liabilities and (ii) net cash available as net cash position plus undrawn amounts available under our revolving credit facility. We present net cash position because our cash position, as measured by cash and cash equivalents, depends upon changes in settlement receivables and the timing of payments related to settlement liabilities. As such, our cash and cash equivalents can change substantially based upon the timing of our receipt of payments for settlement receivables and payments we make to customers for our settlement liabilities.  We present net cash available as management monitors this amount in connection with its forecasting of cash flows and future cash requirements. 

A reconciliation of the Company’s cash and cash equivalents per GAAP to net cash position and net cash available is included in the Unaudited Reconciliation of Cash and Cash Equivalents to Net Cash Position and Net Cash Available provided at the end of this release.
