Global Cash Access Reports Second Quarter 2010 Results

08/04/10

LAS VEGAS, Aug 04, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) --Global Cash Access Holdings, Inc. (the "Company") (NYSE:GCA) today announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2010.

 

Quarterly and Recent Business Highlights:

  • Cash EPS of $0.16
  • Revenue of $157.2 million
  • Approval from the Nevada Gaming Control Board to begin a product field trial of its new QuikTicket product in Nevada.

 

"While conditions in the gaming industry remain challenging we've continued to pursue our product and service innovation strategy and believe that this is positioning the Company well for the long-term. We believe our market position, breath of products and our ever increasing focus on innovation and customer service continues to position us well for the future," said Scott Betts, the Company's president and chief executive officer. "We are very pleased with the approval by Nevada Gaming Control Board of QuikTicket and look forward to getting it into the market for testing."

Fiscal Second Quarter 2010 Results

Revenue was $157.2 million, a decrease of 9.1% over the $173.0 million in revenue recorded in the same quarter last year. Revenues during the quarter were adversely impacted by the continued weakness in the gaming sector and consumer revolving credit. Operating income was $13.7 million, a decrease of 29.0% over the $19.3 million recognized in the prior year's second quarter. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") (see Non-GAAP Financial Information below) were $17.8 million, a decrease of 25.2% compared to the same period in the prior year's second quarter. Income from continuing operations in the second quarter of 2010 was $5.9 million, down 35.2% from the second quarter of 2009. Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations were $0.09 in the second quarter of 2010 (on 67.9 million diluted shares) as compared to $0.12 in the second quarter of 2009 (on 79.0 million diluted shares). Cash EPS were $0.16 in the second quarter of 2010, an 11.1% decrease from the $0.18 reported in the prior year's second quarter.

2010 Outlook

The Company's initial guidance was based on a stabilization of the segment trends in the first half of 2010 with modest improvement in the second half of 2010. Results through July now indicate that while the rate of same store declines has slowed, the Company is now forecasting continued declines for the remainder of 2010. For this reason the Company is lowering its annual guidance for GAAP EPS to between $0.40 and $0.43, and Cash EPS to between $0.69 and $0.72.

The foregoing expectations reflect the following assumptions:

  • An effective tax rate for the full year of approximately 38%;
  • Cash outlays for capital expenditures of approximately $7 to $9 million;
  • Fully diluted shares outstanding for the full year of approximately 67.5 to 68.5 million shares;
  • The expiration/non-renewal of the Company's largest customer contract effective November 2010; and
  • The redemption of $25 million in senior subordinated notes in the fourth quarter of 2010.
