PokerTek Reports First Quarter 2013 Financial Results

MATTHEWS, NC--(Marketwired - May 8, 2013) - PokerTek, Inc. (NASDAQ: PTEK) today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013.

Financial Highlights

  • Recurring license and service fees increased 26%
  • Operating expenses remain well controlled
  • Balance sheet strengthened

"During the first quarter, we entered the South American market with initial installations in Uruguay and Colombia and continued to install games in Mexico," commented Mark Roberson, Chief Executive Officer. "We are on track to grow penetration in our target markets, our costs continue to be well controlled, and our balance sheet is substantially improved.

"Looking ahead, we expect product placement activity to increase and operating results to continue to strengthen."

Financial Summary

Total revenue was $1.4 million for the first quarter of 2013 compared to $1.7 million in 2012, a decrease of $0.3 million, or 17.1%. This decrease was partially due to a change in product mix as the prior year included higher revenues from product sales, which offset the increases in recurring license and service fees in the current period.

Revenues from license and service fees increased $0.3 million, or 26%. The increase in license and service fees from the prior year resulted from growth in leased games in Canada and Mexico, partially offset by lower license and service fees from Europe.

Revenues from systems and equipment sales decreased $0.6 million as substantially all of the current period revenue was generated from recurring license and service fees. The prior year results included several product sales in Europe and a conversion of leased games to product sales in the United States.

Gross profit decreased by $0.3 million, or 19.7%, to $1.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013, as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2012. Gross profit margins were 75% for the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared to 77% for the three months ended March 31, 2012.

Operating expenses were unchanged at $1.2 million for both quarterly periods.

Net loss from continuing operations for the three months ended March 31, 2013 was $0.2 million compared to net income of $59 thousand for the three months ended March 31, 2012, due to the favorable impact of higher sales of systems and equipment in the prior year, offsetting the growth in recurring license and service fees in the current year. Net income (loss) from continuing operations per common share was a loss of $0.02 per common share (basic and diluted) compared to a profit of $0.01 per common share (basic and diluted).

EBITDAS, a non-GAAP financial measure (described below), was positive $0.1 million in 2013 and $0.4 million in 2012.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Information

Cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations improved by 40%, to $0.35 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared to $0.25 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012. The improvement in cash provided by operating activities was primarily due to working capital changes with accounts receivable decreasing on more favorable collections and accounts payable increasing due to the timing of inventory payments.

Cash provided by financing activities was $0.46 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013, compared to $50 thousand for the comparable period in 2012. Cash provided by financing activities primarily consists of proceeds from sales of common stock in both periods. For the three months ended March 31, 2013, we also made principal payments on the Founders' Loan.

On March 1, 2013, we sold 460,000 shares of our common stock to ten unaffiliated accredited investors at a price of $1.05 per share, realizing gross proceeds of $0.48 million and net proceeds after paying brokers' commission of $0.47 million. The offering was exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Act) pursuant to Section 4(5) of the Act and Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated under the Act.

As of March 31, 2013, the Company's cash and cash equivalents totaled $1.0 million and total debt was $0.3 million.

Gaming Positions Information

Gaming positions deployed worldwide totaled 2,390 as of March 31, 2013 comprised of 2,240 PokerPro and 150 ProCore gaming positions. As of March 31, 2012, our installed base consisted of 2,032 gaming positions deployed worldwide comprised of 1,894 PokerPro gaming positions and 138 ProCore gaming positions.

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.
