Gaming Partners International Corporation Reports 2013 Fourth-Quarter and Year Results

LAS VEGAS, March 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Gaming Partners International Corporation (NASDAQ: GPIC), a leading worldwide provider of casino currency and table gaming equipment, announced financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2013.

During the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2013, the Company posted net income of $0.6 million, or $0.08 per basic and diluted share, compared to net income of $1.7 million, or $0.22 per basic and diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2012. For the year ended 2013, the Company posted net income of $1.2 million, or $0.15 per basic and diluted share, compared to net income of $6.1 million, or $0.75 per basic and diluted share, for the year ended 2012. The decrease in net income for the fourth quarter and the year 2013 was caused by lower casino currency sales and higher selling and administrative expenses.

During the fourth quarter of 2013, the Company had revenues of $13.7 million, compared to revenues of $17.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. The primary reason for the decrease in revenues was a decrease in casino currency sales in the United States and in the Asia-Pacific region.

For the full year 2013, the Company posted revenues of $56.2 million compared to revenues of $62.9 million in the year 2012. Gross profit for the year 2013 was $17.6 million, or 31% of revenues, compared to $22.5 million, or 36% of revenues, in the same period of the prior year. The reason for the decrease in revenues in 2013 compared to 2012, was primarily related to fewer casino openings/expansions in 2013 compared to 2012.

"Our results for both the quarter and the year are disappointing," commented Greg Gronau, GPIC President and Chief Executive Officer. "While the smaller number of casino openings has certainly hurt, efforts to better balance production, develop and obtain regulatory approval for new product offerings have not progressed as quickly as we anticipated. On the positive side, we have increased revenues from sales of RFID solutions and have increased market share in cards and other consumables, a source of recurring revenue not contingent on new casino openings."
