Galaxy Gaming enjoys record fourth quarter with 2023 as a whole up 25 per cent

By - 26 March 2024

Galaxy Gaming, a developer and distributor of casino table games and enhanced systems for land-based casinos and iGaming content, generated record revenue in the fourth quarter of 2023, up 23 per cent at $8.4m with the year up 25 per cent.

“Q4 of 2023 marked a substantial improvement in operating results as compared to the previous quarter,” said Matt Reback, President and CEO. “We saw gross revenue increases of 25% and 23% in the quarter and the year, respectively, and our gross revenue in Q4 of 2023 was a record at $8.4 million.   We believe that the opportunistic sales of perpetual licenses peaked in 2023, and that we will return to a sustainable growth model relying principally on recurring revenue generated from our robust library of core and premium felt products, our emerging line of GOS products, and our iGaming business in 2024.

“We had a full quarter of license revenue from EZ Baccarat in the fourth quarter. However, we were not able to complete the entire installation backlog of our EZ Baccarat Trend Displays, on which we pay no royalties, until February of 2024. We expect these displays will help grow revenue on both a gross and net basis in 2024.

“I am now 4 ½ months into my tenure at Galaxy, and I am very excited about the prospects for the Company. The addition of Michael Ratner as our EVP of Product will help us execute more crisply on product innovation, new product development, and efficient product release. Over the intermediate term, we will develop a strategic plan that will allow us to continue to deliver double-digit revenue growth rates through a combination of organic growth and potential tuck-in acquisitions,” concluded Reback.

With the addition of EZ Baccarat, revenues in our Core vertical now have a contra-revenue component as our Digital vertical has had,” stated Harry Hagerty, Galaxy’s CFO. “To provide additional information to our investors, we will now be disclosing revenue on a gross and net basis in both verticals, and we will also break out sales of perpetual licenses when they occur.

“We incurred some higher-than-planned shipping expenses in Q4 as we expedited the installation of EZ Baccarat displays. Intellectual property registration expenses also continued to be higher than historical levels as we expand the reach of our products into global markets. In our online business, we continue to see double-digit increase in demand for our games (as measured by the gaming revenue they generate). However, the growth in our gross revenue was affected during the back half of 2023 as a result of the renegotiation of royalty rates with Evolution in exchange for a long-term extension of our agreement with them. We reduced the level of our bad debt reserve as we made collection progress on some slow-moving accounts in the quarter. Finally, we have added back all of the expenses related to the Q4 CEO transition in calculating Adjusted EBITDA.
