LAS VEGAS , May 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Everi Holdings Inc. (NYSE: EVRI) ("Everi" or the "Company"), a premier provider of land-based and digital casino gaming content and products, financial technology and player loyalty solutions, today announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022.

First Quarter 2022 Financial Highlights

  • Revenues rose 26% to $175.6 million from $139.1 million in the 2021 first quarter, led by a quarterly record $134.4 million of recurring revenues.
  • Net income increased 54% to $31.5 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, compared to $20.5 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, in the 2021 first quarter.
  • Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, increased 19% to a first quarter record $89.6 million from $75.4 million in the 2021 first quarter.
  • Free Cash Flow, a non-GAAP financial measure, rose 19% to $51.6 million compared to $43.5 million in the 2021 first quarter.

Randy Taylor, Chief Executive Officer of Everi, said, "We delivered record first quarter financial results, including revenues, net income, Adjusted EBITDA, and Free Cash Flow. Our performance was a strong start to the year and reflects our talented global workforce's successful delivery of innovative, high-value solutions that continue to generate increased demand due to their ability to help our customers grow their businesses and improve their cost efficiencies.

"The improved operating results, led by growth in our high-margin recurring revenue streams, which were up 23% year over year to $134.4 million, are translating into sustainable Free Cash Flow. This enables us to continue prioritizing return-focused investments that will grow our addressable markets, further support our internal product innovation and pursue additional accretive, scalable acquisitions. In the first quarter, we increased our global presence with the acquisitions of an Australia-based FinTech technology provider and a games development team that will form the nucleus of a new game studio in Australia. Our expansion has continued in the second quarter with the recently announced acquisitions of Intuicode Gaming Systems that accelerates our growth prospects within the Historical Horse Racing category of gaming products with an experienced development team and with long-term recurring revenue contracts for existing and future content distribution, as well as with XUVI, which adds a powerful analytics and artificial intelligence engine to our FinTech Loyalty business. At the same time, our improved balance sheet and strong Free Cash Flow also provide the flexibility to return capital to shareholders through a share repurchase program, as we believe our stock offers a great value at the current valuation. Given the ongoing strength of our business and our growth opportunities, we expect to remain on track to deliver continued year-over-year growth in 2022."

First Quarter 2022 Results Overview

Driven by growth in both the Games and FinTech segments, revenues for the three-month period ended March 31, 2022 increased 26% to $175.6 million compared to $139.1 million in the first quarter of 2021, which had reflected varying pandemic-related impacts for our casino customers. Recurring revenues grew 23% to $134.4 million while non-recurring sales increased 38% to $41.2 million.

Operating income for the 2022 first quarter rose 31% to $52.6 million from $40.2 million in the prior-year period, and net income increased 54% to $31.5 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, compared with $20.5 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2021. Operating income increased reflecting the benefit of higher revenues and lower depreciation and amortization expense, partially offset by higher research and development expense. Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2022 rose 19% to $89.6 million compared to $75.4 million in the first quarter of 2021. Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenues was 51.0% compared with 54.2% in the prior-year period, reflecting the revenue mix change arising from the substantially greater growth in gaming machine and hardware sales, together with higher research and development expense that supports the Company's focus on increased internal, new product development.

Mr. Taylor, added, "For the second consecutive quarter, our FinTech segment generated record revenues and Adjusted AEBITDA. The record quarterly performance was driven by increased revenues from financial access services, strong quarterly kiosk sales and the ongoing organic growth of our Loyalty and RegTech solutions. These results reflect our ability to offer industry-leading, integrated solutions that help drive consistent market share gains and increases in same-store activity. We believe our FinTech business is positioned to grow through the addition of new customers and the deployment of an increasing number of innovative products.

"Our Games segment results benefitted from ongoing operating momentum as reflected in the 12th consecutive quarter-end increase in our installed base of gaming operations units, and a 56% year-over-year increase in sales of gaming machines to 1,474 units as we continue to grow our ship share, thanks to the success of our expanded portfolio of player-popular games and differentiated cabinets. With the recent installations of our new Player Classic Signature™ mechanical reel cabinet, we continue to expand our Games product portfolio, which we expect will help drive further market share growth. In addition, as the replacement cycle of gaming machines returns to pre-pandemic levels, we expect our continued investments in new game and cabinet development favorably position Everi to make steady progress toward our target of 15% ship share over the next several years."

2022 First Quarter Games Segment Highlights

Games segment revenues grew 29% to $98.3 million compared to $76.1 million in the first quarter of 2021, reflecting a 21% increase in gaming operations revenues – inclusive of a 129% increase in digital gaming revenues – and a 56% increase in gaming equipment and systems.

Operating income increased 82% to $27.8 million compared to $15.3 million in the first quarter of 2021, reflecting the benefit of higher revenues and lower depreciation and amortization expense, partially offset by higher research and development expense. Adjusted EBITDA increased 24% to $55.5 million from $44.6 million in the first quarter of 2021.

Gaming operations revenues grew 21% to $70.3 million from $58.1 million a year ago. Gaming operations revenues from land-based casino customers grew to $64.8 million from $55.7 million in the prior year period.

  • The installed base reached a record 17,328 units as of March 31, 2022; representing a year-over-year increase of 9%, or 1,379 units. The installed base increased by 425 units on a quarterly sequential basis.
  • The premium portion of the installed base increased by 21%, or 1,382 units, year over year and by 239 units on a quarterly sequential basis to a record 8,079 units. This was the 15th consecutive quarterly sequential increase in premium units. Growth was driven in part by continued placements of Cashnado™ units, the Company's popular premium mechanical reel games and its Wide-area Progressive ("WAP") gaming machines.
  • Daily Win per Unit ("DWPU") increased to $39.76 in the first quarter of 2022 compared to $37.28 in the first quarter of 2021, reflecting a year-over-year increase in the number of higher-performing premium games partially offset by an increase in non-premium units and a broader expansion across more venues providing various levels of performance.
  • Gaming operations revenues from digital gaming rose 129% to $5.5 million in the first quarter of 2022 compared to $2.4 million in the first quarter of 2021, and increased 34% on a quarterly sequential basis. Digital revenue growth reflects the continued growth and expanded base of iGaming operator sites featuring Everi's games along with a growing library of available slot content. Subsequent to the March quarter-end, Everi Digital went live in Ontario, Canada with six new operator sites featuring more than a dozen high-performing titles.

Gaming equipment and systems revenues generated from the sale of gaming machines and other related parts and equipment increased 56% to $28.0 million in the first quarter of 2022 compared to $18.0 million in the first quarter of 2021.

  • The Company sold 1,474 gaming machines at an average selling price ("ASP") of $18,157 in the 2022 first quarter, up 531 units, or 56%, from 943 units sold at an ASP of $18,609 in the 2021 first quarter. Unit growth reflects an estimated increase in industry ship share driven by the popularity of an expanding game library supporting the Empire Flex™ video reel cabinet and the ongoing performance of the Player Classic™ mechanical reel cabinet. Initial installations of the new Player Classic Signature™ mechanical reel cabinet were made at a casino in Louisiana just prior to the end of the 2022 first quarter.

2022 First Quarter Financial Technology Solutions ("FinTech") Segment Highlights

FinTech revenues for the 2022 first quarter increased 23% to an all-time quarterly record $77.3 million compared to $63.0 million in the 2021 first quarter, reflecting a 29% increase in financial access services, 36% growth in hardware sales and a 3% increase in software and other revenues.

Operating income was $24.8 million in the 2022 first quarter compared to $24.9 million in the prior-year period, which had included $1.1 million in proceeds from a litigation settlement net of associated legal fees. First quarter 2022 operating income reflected a benefit from higher revenues offset by higher legal and litigation costs and by a $1.9 million increase in research and development expense in support of new and enhanced Loyalty products, the Company's digital CashClub Wallet® and other solutions and new RegTech products and software offerings. Adjusted EBITDA rose 11% to $34.1 million compared to $30.8 million in the 2021 fourth quarter. 

  • Financial access services revenues, which include cashless and cash-dispensing debit and credit card transactions and check services, increased 29% to a quarterly record $49.9 million compared with the 2021 first quarter, reflecting continued strength in financial funding transactions at casinos. The number of completed financial transactions increased 12% year over year and for the first time in a single quarter delivered more than $10 billion of funding to customers' casino floors. The Company's CashClub Wallet digital technology is presently deployed across six jurisdictions at 19 casinos, up from 16 casinos in four jurisdictions at year-end 2021, with additional casino properties under various stages of deployment.
  • Software and other revenues, which include Loyalty and RegTech software, product subscriptions, kiosk maintenance services, and other revenues, rose 3% to $17.9 million in the first quarter of 2022 compared to $17.3 million in the first quarter 2021. Approximately 80% and 72% of software and other revenues were of a recurring nature in the 2022 and 2021 first quarter periods, respectively.
  • Hardware sales revenues increased 36% to $9.5 million compared to $7.0 million in the first quarter of 2021.

Board Authorizes $150 Million Share Repurchase Program

Everi's Board of Directors approved a new 18-month share repurchase program pursuant to which the Company may purchase up to $150 million of its common shares in open market or privately negotiated transactions through November 4, 2023 in accordance with Company and regulatory policies, and trading plans established in accordance with Rules 10b5-1 and 10b-18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The actual number of shares to be purchased will depend upon market conditions and is subject to available liquidity, general market and economic conditions, alternative uses for the capital and other factors. All shares purchased will be held in the Company's treasury for possible future use. As of March 31, 2022, Everi had approximately 91.5 million shares issued and outstanding, net of 25.7 million shares held in the Company's treasury. There is no minimum number of shares that the Company is required to repurchase, and the repurchase program may be suspended or discontinued at any time without prior notice. This new repurchase program supersedes and replaces in its entirety the previous share repurchase program.

Outlook

Everi continues to expect year-over-year increases in revenues, Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow for the full-year 2022. Today, the Company raised its guidance for Adjusted EBITDA to a range of $368 million to $378 million from its prior guidance of $368 million to $376 million.

Everi expects certain 2022 second quarter operating and financial results, including revenues, net income and Adjusted EBITDA, will be in line with or slightly higher than its record 2021 second quarter results, despite the year-over-year absence of substantial government stimulus payments and a larger-than-normal benefit to prior-year revenues from gaming machine and hardware sales related to new casino openings and expansions.

Everi's 2022 outlook reflects the likely impact from less government stimulus benefits that provided a significant consumer benefit, particularly in the second quarter of 2021, and higher interest expense. The Company's results have not reflected, and its guidance does not presently contemplate, any additional material impact from a pandemic-related setback or other macroeconomic effect, such as recessionary or inflationary influence on consumer spending, a material supply chain disruption, or other changes in global market conditions.

A summary and reconciliation of the financial targets are included in a supplemental table at the end of this release.

Investor Conference Call and Webcast

The Company will host an investor conference call to discuss its 2022 first quarter results at 11:00 a.m. EDT (8:00 a.m. PDT) today. The conference call may be accessed live by phone by dialing (201) 689-8471.

The call also will be webcast live and archived on www.everi.com (select "Investors" followed by "Events & Contact").

Non-GAAP Financial Information

In order to enhance investor understanding of the underlying trends in our business, our cash balance, and cash available for our operating needs, and to provide for better comparability between periods in different years, we are providing in this press release Adjusted EBITDA, Free Cash Flow, Net Cash Position and Net Cash Available, which are not measures of our financial performance or position under United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"). Accordingly, Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.  These measures should be read in conjunction with our net earnings, operating income, and cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP. With respect to Net Cash Position and Net Cash Available, these measures should be read in conjunction with cash and cash equivalents prepared in accordance with GAAP.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as earnings (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, loss on extinguishment of debt, non-cash stock compensation expense, accretion of contract rights, write-downs of inventory, property and equipment and intangible assets, employee severance costs and other related expenses, litigation settlement received net of legal costs, foreign exchange loss, asset acquisition expense, non-recurring professional fees, certain litigation costs, and one-time charges. We present Adjusted EBITDA, as we use this measure to manage our business and consider this measure to be supplemental to our operating performance. We also make certain compensation decisions based, in part, on our operating performance, as measured by Adjusted EBITDA; and our current credit facility and existing senior unsecured notes require us to comply with a consolidated secured leverage ratio that includes performance metrics substantially similar to Adjusted EBITDA.

We define Free Cash Flow as Adjusted EBITDA less cash paid for interest, cash paid for capital expenditures, cash paid for placement fees, and cash paid for taxes net of refunds.  We present Free Cash Flow as a measure of performance and believe it provides investors with another indicator of our operating performance. It should not be inferred that the entire Free Cash Flow amount is available for discretionary expenditures.

A reconciliation of the Company's net income (loss) per GAAP to Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow is included in the Unaudited Reconciliation of Selected Financial GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures provided at the end of this release. Additionally, a reconciliation of each segment's operating income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is also included. On a segment level, operating income per GAAP, rather than net earnings per GAAP, is reconciled to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as the Company does not report net earnings by segment. Management believes that this presentation is meaningful to investors in evaluating the performance of the Company's segments.

We define (i) Net Cash Position as cash and cash equivalents plus settlement receivables less settlement liabilities and (ii) Net Cash Available as Net Cash Position plus undrawn amounts available under our revolving credit facility. We present Net Cash Position because our cash position, as measured by cash and cash equivalents, depends upon changes in settlement receivables and the timing of payments related to settlement liabilities. As such, our cash and cash equivalents can change substantially based upon the timing of our receipt of payments for settlement receivables and payments we make to customers for our settlement liabilities.  We present Net Cash Available as management monitors this amount in connection with its forecasting of cash flows and future cash requirements.

A reconciliation of the Company's cash and cash equivalents per GAAP to Net Cash Position and Net Cash Available is included in the Unaudited Reconciliation of Cash and Cash Equivalents to Net Cash Position and Net Cash Available provided at the end of this release.
