PokerTek Reports Second Quarter 2013 Financial Results

MATTHEWS, NC--(Marketwired - Aug 7, 2013) - PokerTek, Inc. (NASDAQ: PTEK) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Financial Highlights

  • Revenue increased 54%
  • Gross Profit margin increased to 77%
  • Net loss from continuing operations improved 87%
  • EPS nearing breakeven at $(0.01)
  • EBITDAS and cash flow positive

"Our financial results for the second quarter were strong, with increased market penetration in Canada, Mexico and the United States driving 54% revenue growth and an 87% improvement in net operating results," commented Mark Roberson, Chief Executive Officer.

"With a strong base of high margin recurring revenue in place, we expect to accelerate second half product placements to drive growth. Areas of focus for the second half include expanding our installed base in several markets, specifically including cruise ships, South America and US markets. In addition, our ProCore platform is nearing regulatory approvals that will allow us to begin marketing BlackJack and Baccarat in regulated markets around the world."

Financial Summary

Total revenue increased by $0.6 million, or 54.0%, to $1.6 million for the quarter and by $0.3 million, or 10.1%, to $3.0 million for the first half of 2013. The increase in total revenue was primarily due to increased license and service fees from Canada and Mexico, increased sales of systems and equipment in the United States, partially offset by lower revenues from Europe.

Revenue from license and service fees increased by $0.3 million, or 35.1% to $1.2 million for the quarter and by $0.6 million, or 29.9%, to $2.6 million for the first half of 2013. The increase in recurring 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.

Revenue from systems and equipment sales increased $0.2 million, or 181.4%, to $0.4 million for the quarter and decreased by $0.3 million, or 43.9%, for the first half of 2013. The changes in sales of systems and equipment for the quarter were primarily due to increased product sales in the United States. For the first half, product sales decreased due to a large product sale occurring in the first quarter of 2012, combined with lower product sale activity in Europe during the current year.

Gross profit increased by $0.5 million, or 67.3%, to $1.2 million for the quarter and by $0.2 million, or 12.0%, to $2.3 million for the first half. Gross profit margins increased to 77.2% for the quarter and 76.0% for the first half of 2013.

Operating expenses increased $0.2 million or 13.8%, to $1.3 million for the quarter and by $0.1 million or 5.9%, to $2.5 million for the first half. Operating expenses increased primarily due to higher spending on testing and other fees incurred to obtain regulatory approval of new products.

Net loss from continuing operations improved 87.0% to $51 thousand for the quarter and by 26.5% to $247 thousand for the first half. The improvement was primarily due to growth in recurring license and service fees and sales of systems and equipment, partially offset by higher product approval costs and foreign income taxes incurred in the current year.

Net loss from continuing operations per common share improved by 80.0% to $0.01 per common share (basic and diluted) for the quarter and by 25.0% to $0.03 per common share (basic and diluted) for the first half.

EBITDAS, a non-GAAP financial measure (described below), improved to positive $248 thousand for the quarter from a loss of $112 thousand in the prior year. For the first half, EBITDAS improved to $370 thousand from $283 thousand in 2012.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Information

Cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations was $0.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013 compared to a use of cash of $0.1 million for the six months ended June 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 systems when compared with the prior period.

Cash provided by financing activities was $0.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013, compared to $0.2 million for the comparable period in 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 June 30, 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 2,456 at June 30, 2013 comprised of 2,300 PokerPro and 156 ProCore gaming positions. As of June 30, 2012, our install base consisted of 2,294 gaming positions deployed worldwide comprised of 2,174 PokerPro gaming positions, and 120 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.
