Global Cash Access Reports Second Quarter 2009 Results

08/04/09

LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 4, 2009-- Global Cash Access Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) (NYSE: GCA) today announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2009 as well as its entry into an agreement to acquire Western Money Systems (“WMS”).

Fiscal Second Quarter 2009 Results

For the quarter ended June 30, 2009, revenues were $173.0 million, an increase of 3.7% over the $166.8 million in revenues recorded in the same quarter last year. Operating income was $19.3 million, a decrease of 6.3% over the $20.6 million recognized in the prior year’s second quarter. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) (see Non-GAAP Financial Information below) was $23.8 million, approximately the same as in the prior year’s second quarter. Income from continuing operations in the second quarter of 2009 was $9.1 million, up 8.4% from the second quarter of 2008. Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations were $0.12 in the second quarter of 2009 (on 79 million diluted shares) as compared to $0.11 in the second quarter of 2008 (on 76.7 million diluted shares). Cash earnings per share from continuing operations (“Cash EPS”) (see Non-GAAP Financial Information below) were $0.18 in the second quarter of 2009, a 5.9% increase from the $0.17 reported in the prior year’s second quarter.

The Company’s results for the quarter include the operations of Certegy Gaming Services, Inc., which was acquired in April of 2008, and Cash Systems, Inc., which was acquired in August of 2008.

WMS is a leading developer, manufacturer and distributor of cash-handling products to the gaming industry and is one of the preeminent manufacturer and distributor of redemption kiosks to gaming. WMS has a 25-year history of providing high-quality products and services to gaming operators. At the closing of the acquisition, the Company will acquire all of the outstanding equity of WMS for a purchase price of $15 million and WMS will become a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. The transaction is not expected to close until 2010, and is subject to the fulfillment of certain licensing requirements in various jurisdictions as well as customary and other closing conditions.

“We continue to be pleased with the Company’s performance and the resiliency of our business model given the continued headwinds faced by the gaming industry. Our strong cash flow has allowed us to continue to allocate capital to creating long-term value for our shareholders via repurchasing shares, acquiring other companies, and developing value added technology solutions for our customers. We are particularly excited to announce the acquisition of WMS” said Scott Betts, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company. “We believe that WMS will allow us to align the Company vertically to provide a full suite of next generation products and services to our customers on a flexible and dynamic platform that we believe will not only be market leading but will not be replicable.”

2009 Outlook

The Company has observed continued weakness in the markets it serves and believes that weakness will be more prolonged than previously anticipated. The Company now believes that revenue will be at or slightly below the low end of its previously issued expectations for 2009 of between $700 and $730 million. Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations are expected to be between $0.43 and $0.47. Cash earnings per share are expected to be between $0.70 and $0.74. Within our original guidance, but at the lower end. EBITDA is now expected to be between $90 and $94 million.

The foregoing expectations reflect the following assumptions:

  • Expense investments in product and processing platforms of between $2 million and $4 million;
  • An effective tax rate for the full year of approximately 38%;
  • Cash outlays for capital expenditures to approximate those amounts disbursed in 2008; and
  • Diluted issued shares of approximately 76 million.
