Gaming Partners International Corporation Reports Financial Results for the Third Quarter and First Nine Months of 2011

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Gaming Partners International Corporation (Nasdaq: GPIC), a leading worldwide provider of casino currency and table gaming equipment, today announced financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2011.

For the third quarter of 2011, the Company posted revenues of $13.8 million and net income of $0.5 million, or $0.06 per basic and diluted share. These results compare to revenues of $12.4 million and net income of $0.8 million, or $0.09 per basic and diluted share, for the third quarter of 2010. Gross profit for the third quarter of 2011 was $4.2 million, or 31% of revenues, compared to $4.1 million, or 33% of revenues, for the prior year quarter.

The increase in revenue for the third quarter of 2011, compared to the same prior year period, was due primarily to an approximate $1.0 million increase in sales of European-style casino chips to Asia, particularly to SJM casinos in Macau.  Additionally, the Company realized $0.3 million in RFID solutions revenue in Asia in the third quarter of 2011.

For the first nine months of 2011, the Company posted revenues of $46.4 million and net income of $3.1 million, or $0.38 per basic and diluted share. These results compare to revenues of $43.2 million and net income of $3.5 million, or $0.42 per basic and diluted share, for the first nine months of 2010. Gross profit for the first nine months of 2011 was $15.1 million, or 33% of revenues, compared to $16.3 million, or 38% of revenues, for the first nine months of 2010.

The increase in revenue for the first nine months of 2011, compared to the same prior year period, was due primarily to an increase of nearly $8.3 million in sales of European-style casino chips for the Galaxy and SJM casinos in Macau, as well as in other parts of Asia, and $1.3 million in RFID solutions revenue.  This increase was offset by a $4.3 million decline in American-style casino chip sales and a $2.1 million decline in furniture and accessories sales in the United States.

The Company ended the quarter with $25.2 million in cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities.

"Our results for the third quarter and the first nine months of 2011 were driven by continued higher revenues in Asia," commented Gregory Gronau, GPIC President and CEO. “We have also recently received orders from the Sands Cotai Central Project Parcels 5 and 6 in Macau, the Star Casino in Australia and from the Genting Casinos UK in the United Kingdom, which together include chips and plaques from the Company’s Bud Jones and Bourgogne et Grasset product brands.  Totaling approximately $6.2 million and to be delivered in 2012, these orders reflect our continued efforts to expand our relationships with key operators in every major gaming jurisdiction.”
