PokerTek Reports Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results

07 Nov, 2013, 09:00 ET from PokerTek, Inc.

MATTHEWS, N.C., Nov. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PokerTek, Inc. (NASDAQ: PTEK) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013.

Year-to-Date Financial Highlights

  • Revenue increased 8%
  • Gross Profit margin improved to 75%
  • Net loss from continuing operations improved 23%
  • EBITDAS and cash flow positive

"Our financial results for the first nine months were solid," commented Mark Roberson, Chief Financial Officer. "Our recurring revenue base is strong and stable, generating high gross margins and improved bottom line operating results.

"With new installations in Macau, Colombia and cruise ships taking place in the fourth quarter, we anticipate a strong finish to the year."

Financial Summary

Revenue increased by 2.6%, to $1.1 million for the third quarter and by 7.9% to $4.1 million for the first nine months of 2013.

Revenue from license and service fees increased 2.9% for the quarter and by 20.3% for the first nine months. License and service fees from Canada, Mexico and cruise ships increased with several new installations generating revenue in the current year period following installation in early 2013 and late 2012. These increases were offset, however, by reductions in revenue from the United States and from other international markets, particularly as a US customer elected to purchase their leased equipment in the first half of 2013 which reduced license fees in the third quarter.

Revenue from systems and equipment sales decreased 17.5% and 43.3%. For the quarter periods, both 2013 and 2012 reflect nominal equipment sales activity as compared with previous quarters due primarily to timing. The lower than normal level of systems and equipment sales revenue in the quarterly periods was the result of timing of the sales cycle with various customers. On a year-to-date basis, customers in the United States purchased gaming equipment under lease in both periods, and sales in Europe declined due to the weaker economic conditions and reduced availability of capital for equipment purchases in France and Eastern Europe

Gross profit increased by 5.1%, to $0.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013 and by 10.1% to $3.1 million for the first nine months of 2013. Gross profit margins increased to 73% for the quarter and 75% for the first nine months of 2013.

Operating expenses increased 3.9%, to $1.1 million for the quarter and by 5.3% to $3.5 million for the first nine months of 2013. Operating expenses increased due to higher spending on regulatory approval of new products and increased bad debt expense, which was partially offset by lower employee compensation and professional fees.

Net loss from continuing operations for the quarter improved 18.4% to a loss of $266 thousand and improved by 22.5% to $513 thousand. The improvement was primarily due to reductions in interest expense from lower long term debt and lower income tax expenses from foreign jurisdictions

Net loss from continuing operations per common share improved by 25% to $0.03 per common share (basic and diluted) for the quarter and by 33% to $0.06 per common share (basic and diluted) for the first nine months.

EBITDAS, a non-GAAP financial measure (described below), improved to positive $61 thousand for the quarter from $8 thousand in the prior year. For the first nine months, EBITDAS improved to $431 thousand from $290 thousand in 2012.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Information

Cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations was $0.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 compared to a use of cash of $0.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012. The improvement in cash provided by operating activities was primarily due to improved operating results and favorable working capital, primarily from increased deferred revenue and reduced use of cash for gaming equipment when compared with the prior period.

Cash provided by financing activities was $0.4 million for both the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012. Cash provided by financing activities primarily consists of proceeds from sales of common stock in both periods, partially offset by principal payments on long term debt in the current year period.

As of September 30, 2013, the Company's cash and cash equivalents totaled $0.8 million and total debt was $0.3 million.

Gaming Positions Information

Gaming positions deployed worldwide totaled 2,180 gaming positions worldwide, comprised of 2,060 PokerPro and 120 ProCore gaming positions. As of September 30, 2012, our install base consisted of 2,442 gaming positions deployed worldwide comprised of 2,304 PokerPro gaming positions, and 138 ProCore gaming positions.

Conference Call

Interested parties may listen to and participate in the conference call by dialing 866-202-0886 (U.S./Canada) or +1-617-213-8841 (Other) and entering passcode 60758967. A live webcast of the conference call will be available through a link on our website, www.pokertek.com, under the heading "Investors".

A replay of the conference call will also be available approximately two hours after the conclusion of the call for approximately one week by dialing 888-286-8010 (U.S./Canada) or +1-617-801-6888 (Other) and entering passcode 97357139.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

PokerTek, Inc. 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 EBITDAS, 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, EBITDAS also excludes noncash charges, certain non-recurring charges and share-based compensation expense. EBITDA and EBITDAS are not measures of performance defined in accordance with GAAP. However, EBITDAS 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.

EBITDAS 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 EBITDAS is included in the accompanying financial schedules.
