Executive Comments

“The first quarter of 2024 showed continued growth at the top and bottom lines,” said Matt Reback, President and CEO. “Both gross and net revenue were records, and by significant margins.   And our Adjusted EBITDA was just shy of the record achieved in Q2 23, when we had $1.6 million in perpetual license sales as compared to $805 thousand in Q1 24. While sales of perpetual licenses were higher than we had planned in Q1 24, they were lower than last year and we remain principally reliant on recurring license revenue, which was 92% of gross revenue in Q1 24 as compared to 85% in Q1 23.

“In the Core sector of our business, Gross Revenue for the quarter was up $1.0 million (20%) and Net Revenue grew by $225 thousand (+4%). Our distribution of EZ Baccarat®, which commenced in September 2023, accounted for the bulk of the increase in recurring license revenue in our Core sector. Also, our GOS product continues to gain momentum with over 100 installations, and development of GOS 2.0 continues on schedule for release later this year. In our iGaming sector, revenues were up 14% on a gross basis and 16% after netting out royalties.

“We have been hard at work on product development under the leadership of Michael Ratner, and I expect that we will have some interesting product innovation news to announce in the coming months.” concluded Reback. “This has been a principal area of focus for me since I joined Galaxy late last year and I am proud of the momentum our entire product team is gaining.”

We were cash flow positive in the quarter and ended with $17.5 million in cash,” added CFO Harry Hagerty. “Our loan from Fortress Credit Corp. requires our net leverage not to exceed 5.0x at any of the quarter-ends in 2024, and at the end of Q1 we were at 3.8x, comfortably in compliance. It remains our intention to reduce our net leverage by focusing on both EBITDA growth and debt reduction and to pursue sensible refinancing opportunities.

Our Q1 2024 results strongly support the guidance that was given when we released our Q4 2023 earnings. However, we will wait until we have Q2 results in hand and better visibility into the second half of the year before considering whether any changes to guidance would be appropriate. As stated previously, our guidance assumes no impact to our business from the wars in Ukraine and the Middle East, no economic recession or pandemic, and is a Forward-Looking Statement subject to our safe harbor language below. Finally, the forecast is based on currency exchange rates that we experienced in the fourth quarter of last year.”
