2. BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Basis of Presentation
Our Financial Statements included herein have been prepared by us pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Some of the information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”) have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations, although we believe the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (which include normal recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair statement of results for the interim periods have been made. The results for the three months ended March 31, 2024 are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the full fiscal year. The Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the most recently filed Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023 (the “Annual Report”).
Restricted Cash
Our restricted cash primarily consists of: (i) funds held in connection with certain customer agreements; (ii) funds held in connection with a sponsorship agreement; (iii) wide-area progressive (“WAP”)-related restricted funds; and (iv) financial access activities related to cashless balances held on behalf of patrons. The following table provides a reconciliation of cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash reported within the Balance Sheets that sum to the total of the same such amounts shown in the Statements of Cash Flows for the three months ended March 31, 2024 (in thousands).

Total$274,045 $272,506 
Fair Values of Financial Instruments
The fair value of a financial instrument represents the amount at which the instrument could be exchanged in a current transaction between willing parties, other than in a forced or liquidation sale. Fair value estimates are made at a specific point in time, based upon relevant market information about the financial instrument.
The carrying amount of cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, settlement receivables, short-term trade and other receivables, settlement liabilities, accounts payable, and accrued expenses approximate fair value due to the short-term maturities of these instruments. The fair value of the long-term trade and loans receivable is estimated by discounting expected future cash flows using current interest rates at which similar loans would be made to borrowers with similar credit ratings and remaining maturities. The fair value of long-term accounts payable is estimated by discounting the total obligation. As of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, the fair value of trade and loans receivable approximated the carrying value due to contractual terms generally being slightly over 12 months. The fair value of our borrowings is estimated based on various inputs to determine a market price, such as: market demand and supply, size of tranche, maturity, and similar instruments trading in more active markets.

3. REVENUES
Overview
We evaluate the recognition of revenue based on the criteria set forth in Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 606 — Revenue from Contracts with Customers and ASC 842 — Leases, as appropriate. We recognize revenue upon transferring control of goods or services to our customers in an amount that reflects the consideration we expect to receive in exchange for those goods or services. We enter into contracts with customers that include various performance obligations consisting of goods, services, or combinations of goods and services. Timing of the transfer of control varies based on the nature of the contract. We recognize revenue net of any sales and other taxes collected from customers, which are subsequently remitted to governmental authorities and are not included in revenues or operating expenses. We measure revenue based on the consideration specified in a contract with a customer and adjusted, as necessary.
Disaggregation of Revenues
We disaggregate revenues based on the nature and timing of the cash flows generated by such revenues as presented in “Note 17 — Segment Information.”
Contract Balances
Since our contracts may include multiple performance obligations, there is often a timing difference between cash collections and the satisfaction of such performance obligations and revenue recognition. Such arrangements are evaluated to determine whether contract assets and liabilities exist. We generally record contract assets when the timing of billing differs from when revenue is recognized due to contracts containing specific performance obligations that are required to be met prior to a customer being invoiced. We generally record contract liabilities when cash is collected in advance of us satisfying performance obligations, including those that are satisfied over a period of time. Balances of our contract assets and contract liabilities may fluctuate due to timing of cash collections.
The following table summarizes our contract assets and contract liabilities arising from contracts with customers (in thousands):
20242023
Contract assets(1)
Balance, beginning of period$26,635 $22,417 
Balance, end of period31,298 22,342

Balance, end of period56,241 51,705 
         Increase (decrease)$4,442 $(1,714)
(1) Contract assets are included within trade and other receivables, net and other receivables in our Balance Sheets.
(2) Contract liabilities are included within accounts payable and accrued expenses and other accrued expenses and liabilities in our Balance Sheets.
We recognized approximately $15.9 million and $18.2 million in revenue that was included in the beginning contract liabilities balance during the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively.
11


Games Revenues
Our products and services include electronic gaming devices, such as Native American Class II offerings and other electronic bingo products, Class III slot machine offerings, HHR offerings, integrated electronic bingo gaming tablets, VLTs installed in the State of New York and similar technology in certain tribal jurisdictions, B2B digital online gaming activities, accounting and central determinant systems, and other back-office systems. We conduct our Games segment business based on results generated from the following major revenue streams: (i) Gaming Operations; and (ii) Gaming Equipment and Systems.
We recognize our Gaming Operations revenue based on criteria set forth in ASC 842 or ASC 606, as applicable. The amount of lease revenue included in our Gaming Operations revenues and recognized under ASC 842 was approximately $46.4 million and $49.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively.
FinTech Revenues
Our FinTech products and services include solutions that we offer to gaming establishments to provide their patrons with financial access and funds-based services supporting digital, cashless and physical cash options across mobile, assisted and self-service channels along with related loyalty and marketing tools, and other information-related products and services. We also develop and offer mobile-first applications aimed at enhancing patron engagement for customers in the casino, sports, entertainment, and hospitality industries. In addition, our services operate as part of an end-to-end security suite to protect against cyber-related attacks, allowing us to maintain appropriate levels of security. These solutions include: access to cash and cashless funding at gaming facilities via ATM debit withdrawals, credit card financial access transactions, and POS debit card purchases at casino cages, kiosk and mobile POS devices; accounts for the CashClub Wallet, check warranty services, self-service loyalty and fully integrated kiosk maintenance services; self-service loyalty tools and promotion management software; compliance, audit, and data software; casino credit data and reporting services; marketing and promotional offering subscription-based services; and other ancillary offerings. We conduct our FinTech segment business based on results generated from the following major revenue streams: (i) Financial Access Services; (ii) Software and Other; and (iii) Hardware.
Hardware revenues are derived from the sale of our financial access and loyalty kiosks and related equipment and are accounted for under ASC 606, unless such transactions meet the definition of a sales type or direct financing lease, which are accounted for under ASC 842. We did not have any significant financial access kiosk and related equipment sales contracts accounted for under ASC 842 during the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023.

5. BUSINESS COMBINATIONS
We account for business combinations in accordance with ASC 805 Business Combinations, which requires that the identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed be recorded at their estimated fair values on the acquisition date separately from goodwill, which is the excess of the fair value of the purchase price over the fair values of these identifiable assets and liabilities. We include the results of operations of an acquired business starting from the acquisition date.

Pending Proposed Merger

On February 28, 2024, the Company entered into definitive agreements with International Game Technology PLC (“IGT”) pursuant to which IGT agreed to spin-off a newly created subsidiary, which will own IGT’s Global Gaming and PlayDigital businesses, with the Company acquiring the Global Gaming and PlayDigital businesses in a series of transactions (the “Proposed Transaction”). Upon the closing of the Proposed Transaction, under the terms of the agreements, IGT shareholders are expected to own approximately 54% of the combined company, with the Company’s existing stockholders expected to own approximately 46% of the combined company. We incurred transaction costs of approximately $14.4 million and employee retention costs of approximately $1.3 million during the first quarter of 2024, which are included within Operating Expenses of our Statements of Operations.

On February 28, 2024, the Company and Ignite Rotate LLC, a subsidiary of IGT (“Spinco”), entered into a debt commitment letter and related letters with the lenders specified therein. On March 29, 2024, the Company and Spinco entered into an amended and restated debt commitment letter and related amended and restated letters (as amended, the “Commitment Letter”), pursuant to which the lenders committed to provide the Company and such subsidiary with up to $3.7 billion, together with a revolver of $0.8 billion, used to refinance the existing debt of the Company and its subsidiaries, and distribute funds to IGT, with the remainder to be used to pay the combined company’s fees, costs and expenses in connection with the Proposed Transaction, subject to the satisfaction of certain customary closing conditions including the consummation of the Proposed Transaction described above.

eCash Holdings Pty Limited
On March 1, 2022 (the “eCash Closing Date”), the Company acquired the stock of eCash Holdings Pty Limited (“eCash”). Under the terms of the stock purchase agreement, we paid the seller AUD$20 million (approximately USD$15 million) on the eCash Closing Date, additional consideration of AUD$5.0 million (USD$3.4 million) approximately one year following the eCash Closing Date and additional consideration of AUD$6.5 million (USD$4.2 million) approximately two years following the eCash Closing Date. In addition, we paid approximately AUD$8.7 million (USD$6.0 million) for the excess net working capital during the second quarter of 2022. We finalized our measurement period adjustments and recorded approximately $2.3 million primarily related to deferred taxes during the first quarter of 2023. The acquisition did not have a significant impact on our results of operations or financial condition.
Intuicode Gaming Corporation
On April 30, 2022 (the “Intuicode Closing Date”), the Company acquired the stock of Intuicode Gaming Corporation (“Intuicode”), a privately owned game development and engineering firm focused on HHR games. Under the terms of the stock purchase agreement, we paid the seller $12.5 million on the Intuicode Closing Date of the transaction, a net working capital payment of $1.6 million during the second quarter of 2022 and $6.4 million based on the
14


achievement of a certain revenue target one year following the Intuicode Closing Date. In addition, we expect to make a final payment of $2.6 million based on the achievement of a certain revenue target approximately two years following the Intuicode Closing Date. We finalized our measurement period adjustments and recorded approximately $1.3 million primarily related to the final payment and deferred taxes during the second quarter of 2023.
The fair value of the contingent consideration was based on Level 3 inputs utilizing a discounted cash flow methodology. The estimates and assumptions included projected future revenues of the acquired business and a discount rate of approximately 5%. Contingent consideration to be paid is comprised of a short-term component that is recorded in accounts payable and accrued expenses in our Balance Sheets. The change in fair value of the contingent consideration during the period ended March 31, 2024 was not material.
Venuetize, Inc.

On October 14, 2022 (the “Venuetize Closing Date”), the Company acquired certain strategic assets of Venuetize, Inc. (“Venuetize”), a privately owned innovator of mobile-first technologies that provide an advanced guest engagement and m-commerce platform for the sports, entertainment and hospitality industries. Under the terms of the asset purchase agreement, we paid the seller $18.2 million on the Venuetize Closing Date of the transaction and an immaterial amount twelve-months following the Venuetize Closing Date that was netted against a net working capital receivable of approximately $1.0 million. In addition, we expect to pay approximately $1.8 million in contingent consideration based upon the achievement of certain revenue targets on the twenty-four month and thirty-month anniversaries of the Venuetize Closing Date. We finalized our measurement period adjustments and recorded approximately $1.2 million primarily related to the net working capital receivable and deferred taxes during the fourth quarter of 2023. The acquisition did not have a significant impact on our results of operations or financial condition.

The fair value of the contingent consideration was based on Level 3 inputs utilizing a discounted cash flow methodology. The estimates and assumptions included projected future revenues of the acquired business and a discount rate of approximately 7%. Contingent consideration to be paid is comprised of a short-term component that is recorded in accounts payable and accrued expenses and a long-term component payable within two years recorded in other accrued expenses and liabilities in our Balance Sheets. The change in fair value of the contingent consideration during the period ended March 31, 2024 was not material.

VKGS LLC

On May 1, 2023 (the “Video King Closing Date”), the Company acquired certain strategic assets of VKGS LLC (“Video King”), a privately owned leading provider of integrated electronic bingo gaming tablets, video gaming content, instant win games and systems. Under the terms of the purchase agreement, we paid the seller approximately $61.0 million, inclusive of a net working capital payment on the Video King Closing Date. We also made an additional net working capital payment of $0.3 million post-closing, early in the third quarter of 2023. In addition, we expect to pay approximately $0.2 million related to an indemnity holdback, which is scheduled for release on the eighteen-month anniversary of the Video King Closing Date. We finalized our measurement period adjustments and recorded an immaterial amount related to deferred taxes during the quarter ended March 31, 2024. The acquisition did not have a significant impact on our results of operations or financial condition.

Pro-forma financial information (unaudited)

The acquisition related to Video King occurred during fiscal 2023; therefore, it is included in our Financial Statements for the three months ended March 31, 2024.

The unaudited pro forma financial data on a consolidated basis, including the historical operating results of the Company, as if the Video King acquisition occurred on January 1, 2023, reflected revenue of approximately $207.4 million and net income of approximately $27.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023.

The acquisitions related to eCash, Intuicode and Venuetize occurred during fiscal 2022; therefore, each are included in our Financial Statements for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively.

The unaudited pro forma results include increases to depreciation and amortization expense based on the purchased intangible assets and costs directly attributable to the acquisitions. The unaudited pro forma results do not purport to be indicative of results of operations as of the date hereof, for any period ended on the date hereof, or for any other future date or period; nor do they give effect to synergies, cost savings, fair market value adjustments and other changes expected as a result of the acquisitions.
6. FUNDING AGREEMENTS
We have commercial arrangements with third-party vendors to provide cash for certain of our fund dispensing devices. For the use of these funds, we pay a usage fee on either the average daily balance of funds utilized multiplied by a contractually defined usage rate or the amounts supplied multiplied by a contractually defined usage rate. These fund usage fees, reflected as interest expense within the Statements of Operations, were approximately $4.8 million and $4.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively. We are exposed to interest rate risk to the extent that the applicable rates increase.
Under these agreements, the currency supplied by third party vendors remain their sole property until the funds are dispensed. As these funds are not our assets, supplied cash is not reflected in our Balance Sheets.
Our primary commercial arrangement, the Contract Cash Solutions Agreement, as amended, is with Wells Fargo, N.A. (“Wells Fargo”). Wells Fargo provides us with cash up to $450 million with the ability to increase the amount permitted by the vault cash provider. The term of the agreement expires on December 1, 2026 and will automatically renew for additional one-year periods unless either party provides a ninety-day written notice of its intent not to renew. The outstanding balance of funds provided in connection with this arrangement were approximately $319.3 million and $388.5 million as of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, respectively.
We are responsible for losses of cash in the fund dispensing devices under this agreement, and we self-insure for this type of risk. There were no material losses for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively.

Credit Facilities
Our senior secured credit facilities consist of: (i) a seven-year $600 million senior secured term loan due 2028 issued at 99.75% of par (the “Term Loan”); and (ii) a $125 million senior secured revolving credit facility due 2026, which was undrawn at closing (the “Revolver” and together with the Term Loan, the “Credit Facilities”). The Company, as borrower, entered into the credit agreement dated as of August 3, 2021 (the “Closing Date”), among the Company, the lenders party thereto and Jefferies Finance LLC, as administrative agent, collateral agent, swing line lender and a letter of credit issuer (the “Original Credit Agreement”).
On June 23, 2023, the Company entered into the first amendment (the “Amendment”) to the Original Credit Agreement (as amended, the “Amended Credit Agreement”), among Everi, as borrower, the lenders party thereto and Jefferies Finance LLC, as administrative agent, collateral agent, swing line lender and letter of credit issuer. Under the Amended Credit Agreement, the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (“SOFR”) replaced the Eurodollar Rate for all purposes under the Original Credit Agreement and under any other Loan Document (as defined therein) on July 1, 2023, when the ICE Benchmark Administration ceased to provide all available tenors of the Eurodollar Rate. In connection with such implementation of SOFR, the Company and Jefferies Finance LLC agreed to make conforming changes to the relevant provisions of the Original Credit Agreement, as reflected in the Amended Credit Agreement.
On November 2, 2023, the Company entered into the second amendment (the “Second Amendment”), effective November 9, 2023, to the Original Credit Agreement and the Amended Credit Agreement (as amended, the “Credit Agreement”), among Everi, as borrower, the lenders party thereto and Jefferies Finance LLC, as administrative agent, collateral agent, swing line lender and letter of credit issuer. Under the Amended Credit Agreement, capitalized terms not otherwise defined in this Second Amendment have the same meanings as specified in the Original Credit Agreement or the Amended Credit Agreement, as the context may require; and pursuant to the Amended Credit Agreement, the Borrower and the Administrative Agent jointly identified certain obvious errors of a technical nature in the Amended Credit Agreement and have agreed to amend the Amended Credit Agreement to correct such errors.
The interest rate per annum applicable to the Credit Facilities will be, at the Company’s option, either the SOFR rate with a 0.50% floor plus a margin of 2.50%, or the base rate plus a margin of 1.50%. In addition, we pay a SOFR adjustment recorded as interest expense that varies for the applicable interest period, with an adjustment of 0.1% for interest periods of one month, an adjustment of 0.3% for interest periods of two months and an adjustment of 0.4% for interest periods of three months. Our Revolver remained fully undrawn as of March 31, 2024.
The weighted average interest rate on the Term Loan was 7.95% for the three months ended March 31, 2024.
Senior Unsecured Notes
Our senior unsecured notes (the “2029 Unsecured Notes”) had an outstanding balance of $400.0 million as of March 31, 2024 that accrues interest at a rate of 5.00% per annum and is payable semi-annually in arrears on each January 15 and July 15.
Compliance with Debt Covenants
We were in compliance with the covenants and terms of the Credit Facilities and the 2029 Unsecured Notes as of March 31, 2024.
12. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
We are involved in various legal proceedings in the ordinary course of our business. While we believe resolution of the claims brought against us, both individually and in the aggregate, will not have a material adverse impact on our financial condition or results of operations, litigation of this nature is inherently unpredictable. Our views on these legal proceedings, including those described below, may change in the future. We intend to vigorously defend against these actions, and ultimately believe we should prevail.

20


Legal Contingencies
We evaluate matters and record an accrual for legal contingencies when it is both probable that a liability has been incurred and the amount or range of the loss may be reasonably estimated. We evaluate legal contingencies at least quarterly and, as appropriate, establish new accruals or adjust existing accruals to reflect: (i) the facts and circumstances known to us at the time, including information regarding negotiations, settlements, rulings, and other relevant events and developments; (ii) the advice and analyses of counsel; and (iii) the assumptions and judgment of management. Legal costs associated with such proceedings are expensed as incurred. Due to the inherent uncertainty of legal proceedings as a result of the procedural, factual, and legal issues involved, the outcomes of our legal contingencies could result in losses in excess of amounts we have accrued.
NRT matter:
NRT Technology Corp., et al. v. Everi Holdings Inc., et al. is a civil action filed on April 30, 2019 against Everi Holdings and Everi FinTech in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware by NRT Technology Corp. and NRT Technology, Inc., alleging monopolization of the market for unmanned, integrated kiosks in violation of federal antitrust laws, fraudulent procurement of patents on functionality related to such unmanned, integrated kiosks and sham litigation related to prior litigation brought by Everi FinTech (operating as Global Cash Access Inc.) against the plaintiff entities. The plaintiffs are seeking compensatory damages, treble damages, and injunctive and declaratory relief. Discovery is closed. The court removed the case from the September trial calendar and requested briefs from the parties on relevant legal issues. Briefing was completed in December 2022. The parties are awaiting further guidance from the court. Due to the current stage of the litigation, we are unable to estimate the probability of the outcome of this matter or reasonably estimate the range of possible damages, if any.
Zenergy Systems, LLC matter:
Zenergy Systems, LLC v. Everi Payments Inc. is a civil action filed on May 29, 2020, against Everi FinTech in the United States District Court for the District of Nevada, Clark County by Zenergy Systems, LLC, alleging breach of contract, breach of a non-disclosure agreement, conversion, breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, and breach of a confidential relationship related to a contract with Everi FinTech that expired in November 2019. The plaintiff is seeking compensatory and punitive damages. Everi FinTech has counterclaimed against Zenergy alleging breach of contract, breach of implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, and for declaratory relief. The parties participated in mediation on March 21, 2023. No settlement was reached at mediation. The parties filed a joint motion to set a firm trial date which the court granted. The case is set for trial on the court’s May 28, 2025 trial calendar. Due to the current stage of the litigation, we are unable to estimate the probability of the outcome of this matter or reasonably estimate the range of possible damages, if any.
Mary Parrish matter:
Mary Parrish v. Everi Holdings Inc., et al. is a civil action filed on December 28, 2021, against Everi Holdings and Everi FinTech in the District Court of Nevada, Clark County by Mary Parrish alleging violation of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA) amendment to the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). Plaintiff’s complaint alleges she received a printed receipt for cash access services performed at an Everi Payments’ ATM which displayed more than four (4) digits of the account number. Plaintiff seeks statutory damages, punitive damages, injunctive relief, attorneys’ fees, and other relief. Everi filed a Petition for Removal to the United States District Court, District of Nevada. On May 4, 2023, the United States District Court entered an order remanding the case and the matter is now pending in the District Court of Nevada, Clark County. On October 20, 2023, the Clark County Court entered an Order denying Everi’s Motion to Dismiss. Thereafter, Everi filed a Petition for Writ of Mandamus with the Nevada Supreme Court appealing the Clark County court’s ruling. On December 15, 2023, the Nevada Supreme Court denied Everi’s Petition for Writ of Mandamus. The case is set for trial on the court’s January 6, 2025, trial calendar. Discovery is underway. Due to the current stage of the litigation, we are unable to estimate the probability of the outcome of this matter or reasonably estimate the range of possible damages, if any.
In addition, we have commitments with respect to certain lease obligations discussed in “Note 4 — Leases” and installment payments under our asset purchase agreements discussed in “Note 5 — Business Combinations.”

13. STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY
On May 3, 2023, our Board of Directors authorized and approved a share repurchase program in an amount not to exceed $180 million, pursuant to which we may purchase outstanding Company common stock in open market or privately negotiated transactions over a period of eighteen (18) months through November 3, 2024, 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, 2024, Everi had approximately 83.8 million shares issued and outstanding, net of 39.5 million shares held in the Company’s treasury. There is no minimum number of shares that the Company is required to repurchase, and the 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.
There were no shares repurchased during the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively. Under the share repurchase program, the remaining availability was $80.0 million as of March 31, 2024.

Generally, we grant the following types of awards: (i) restricted stock units with either time- or performance-based criteria; and (ii) time-based options. We estimate forfeiture amounts based on historical patterns.
A summary of award activity is as follows (in thousands):

There were approximately 2.1 million awards of our common stock available for future equity grants under our existing equity incentive plan as of March 31, 2024.
22


16. INCOME TAXES
The income tax provision for the three months ended March 31, 2024, reflected an effective income tax rate of 23.5%, which was greater than the statutory federal rate of 21.0%, primarily due to state taxes and a valuation allowance on certain deferred tax assets, partially offset by a research credit. The income tax provision for the three months ended March 31, 2023, reflected an effective income tax rate of 17.6%, which was less than the statutory federal rate of 21.0%, primarily due to a research credit and the benefit from equity award activities, partially offset by state taxes.
We have analyzed our positions in the federal, state and foreign jurisdictions where we are required to file income tax returns, as well as the open tax years in these jurisdictions. As of March 31, 2024, we recorded approximately $4.5 million of unrecognized tax benefits, all of which would impact our effective tax rate, if recognized. We do not anticipate that our unrecognized tax benefits will materially change within the next 12 months.
17. SEGMENT INFORMATION
Operating segments are components of an enterprise about which separate financial information is available that is evaluated regularly by the chief operating decision-making group (the “CODM”). Our CODM consists of the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer. Our CODM determined that our operating segments for conducting business are: (i) Games and (ii) FinTech. Our CODM allocates resources and measures profitability based on our operating segments, which are managed and reviewed separately, as each represents products and services that can be sold separately to our customers. Our segments are monitored by management for performance against our internal forecasts. We have reported our financial performance based on our segments in both the current and prior periods. Refer to “Note 1 — Business” for additional information regarding our operating segments.
Corporate overhead expenses have been allocated to the segments either through specific identification or based on a reasonable methodology. In addition, we record depreciation and amortization expenses to the business segments.
Our business is predominantly domestic with no specific regional concentrations that were material to our results of operations or financial condition, and no significant assets in foreign locations.

Additional Items Impacting Comparability of Results of Operations and Financial Condition
Our Financial Statements included in this report reflect the following additional items impacting the comparability of results of operations:
During the first quarter of 2024, we entered into definitive agreements with International Game Technology PLC (“IGT”) pursuant to which IGT agreed to spin-off a newly created subsidiary, which will own IGT’s Global Gaming and PlayDigital businesses, with the Company acquiring the Global Gaming and PlayDigital businesses in a series of transactions (the “Proposed Transaction”).

Revenues
Total revenues decreased by approximately $11.1 million, or 6%, to approximately $189.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, as compared to the same period in the prior year. This was primarily due to the decline in Games revenues described below.
Games revenues decreased by approximately $10.2 million, or 10%, to approximately $97.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, as compared to the same period in the prior year. This change was primarily due to lower unit sales, partially offset by higher average selling prices reflected in our gaming equipment and systems revenues. In addition, the decrease was due to a lower daily win per unit and a reduced installed base of leased machines, partially offset by the continued results from our bingo solutions and interactive offerings reflected in our gaming operations revenues.

FinTech revenues decreased by approximately $0.9 million, or 1%, to approximately $92.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, as compared to the same period in the prior year. This change was primarily due to lower unit sales in both kiosk and loyalty units reflected in our hardware revenues. The decrease was mostly offset by an increase in both transaction and dollar volumes reflected in our financial access services revenues associated with continued strength in the gaming industry. In addition, the decrease was further offset by increased revenues from software sales and support related services attributable to our kiosk solutions reflected in our software and other revenues.

Costs and Expenses
Total costs and expenses increased by approximately $16.2 million, or 11%, to approximately $164.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, as compared to the same period in the prior year. This was primarily due to the expenses described below.
Games cost of revenues decreased by approximately $3.5 million, or 13%, to approximately $23.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, as compared to the same period in the prior year. This change was primarily due to the reduced variable costs associated with lower unit sales reflected in our gaming equipment and systems cost of revenues. The decrease was partially offset by the additional costs related to our installed base of leased bingo integrated electronic gaming tablets reflected in our gaming operations cost of revenues.
FinTech cost of revenues was relatively consistent for the three months ended March 31, 2024, as compared to the same period in the prior year. This was primarily due to the reduced variable costs of hardware revenues associated with the lower unit sales of kiosk and loyalty units, in addition to a decrease in variable costs of financial access services from our check warranty offering. This result was partially offset by an increase in variable costs related to higher software revenues from our kiosk solutions.
Operating expenses increased by approximately $14.4 million, or 24%, to approximately $73.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, as compared to the same period in the prior year. This was primarily due to approximately $15.7 million in incremental accounting, legal, consulting and employee retention expenses related to the Proposed Transaction. In addition, the increase in operating expenses was related to higher payroll and related expenses to support the growth of our existing operations, and rising expenses for software licensing in our Games and FinTech segments. The increase in operating expenses was partially offset by reduced stock-based compensation expense in our Games and FinTech segments.
31


Research and development expense increased by approximately $3.2 million, or 20%, to approximately $19.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, as compared to the same period in the prior year. This change was primarily due to growth in our operations and continued investment in new products in our Games and FinTech segments.
Depreciation expense increased by approximately $1.0 million, or 5%, to approximately $20.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, as compared to the same period in the prior year. This was primarily associated with the shortening of estimated remaining useful lives that were no longer supportable for certain fixed assets and an increase in capital spending in our Games segment.
Amortization expense increased by approximately $1.1 million, or 8%, to approximately $15.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, as compared to the same period in the prior year. This was primarily associated with capitalized software costs from development initiatives in our Games segment.
Primarily as a result of the factors described above, our operating income decreased by $27.3 million, or 52%, for the three months ended March 31, 2024, as compared to the same period in the prior year. The operating income margin was 13% for the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared to an operating income margin of 26% for the same period in the prior year.
Interest expense, net of interest income, increased by approximately $0.8 million, or 5%, to approximately $18.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, as compared to the same period in the prior year. This was primarily due to higher interest rates on our variable debt and our vault cash as a result of inflationary pressures in the macro-economic environment and global instability. This was partially offset by interest earned of approximately $3.7 million on our cash balances due to rising interest rates throughout the period.
Income tax provision decreased by approximately $4.6 million, or 77%, to approximately $1.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, as compared to the same period in the prior year. The income tax provision for the three months ended March 31, 2024 reflected an effective income tax rate of 23.5%, which was greater than the statutory federal rate of 21.0%, primarily due to state taxes and a valuation allowance on certain deferred tax assets, partially offset by a research credit. The income tax provision of $6.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023 reflected an effective income tax rate of 17.6%, which was lower than the statutory federal rate of 21.0%, primarily due to a research credit and the benefit from equity award activities, partially offset by state taxes.

Primarily as a result of the factors described above, we had net income of approximately $4.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, as compared to net income of approximately $28.1 million for the same period in the prior year.
Critical Accounting Estimates
The preparation of our financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect our reported amounts of assets and liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities in our Financial Statements. The SEC has defined critical accounting estimates as those that involve a significant level of estimation uncertainty and have had or are reasonably likely to have a material impact on the financial condition or results of operations of the registrant.
There were no material changes to our critical accounting estimates as compared to those disclosed in our most recently filed Annual Report.
Recent Accounting Guidance
For a description of our recently adopted accounting guidance and recent accounting guidance not yet adopted, see the section entitled “Recent Accounting Guidance” in “Note 2 — Basis of Presentation and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies” included in Part I, Item 1: Financial Statements of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

(1)    Non-GAAP financial measure. In order to enhance investor understanding of our cash balance, we are providing in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q our net cash position and net cash available, which are not measures of financial position under GAAP. Accordingly, these measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP measures, and should be read in conjunction with our balance sheets prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our net cash position is cash and cash equivalents plus settlement receivables less settlement liabilities; and our net cash available is net cash position plus undrawn amounts available under our revolving credit facility. Our net cash position and net cash available change substantially based upon the timing of our receipt of funds for settlement receivables and payments we make to customers for our settlement liabilities. We present these non-GAAP measures as we monitor these amounts in connection with forecasting of cash flows and future cash requirements, both on a short-term and long-term basis.
Cash Resources
As of March 31, 2024, our cash balance, cash flows, and line of credit are expected to be sufficient to meet our recurring operating commitments and to fund our planned capital expenditures on both a short- and long-term basis. Cash and cash equivalents included cash in non-U.S. jurisdictions of approximately $19.9 million as of March 31, 2024. Generally, these funds are available for operating and investment purposes within the jurisdiction in which they reside, and we may from time to time consider repatriating these foreign funds to the United States, subject to potential withholding tax obligations, based on operating requirements.
We expect that cash provided by operating activities will also be sufficient for our operating and debt servicing needs during the foreseeable future on both a short- and long-term basis. In addition, we have sufficient borrowings available under our senior secured revolving credit facility to meet further funding requirements. Based upon available information, we believe our lenders should be able to honor their commitments under the Credit Agreement (defined in “Note 11 — Long-term Debt”).

Sources and Uses of Cash

Balance, end of the period$274,045 $295,703 $(21,658)
Cash flows provided by operating activities increased by approximately $23.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, as compared to the same period in the prior year. This was primarily due to changes in operating assets and liabilities, mostly associated with settlement activities from our FinTech segment. These receivables and liabilities are generally highly liquid in nature, with settlement receivables collected within one to three days of the financial access transaction performed by the patron and settlement liabilities repaid to our casino customers within three to five days of the original transaction date. As a result of the timing of weekends and holidays in relation to the close of an accounting period, the amount of uncollected settlement receivables and unpaid settlement liabilities can vary greatly. In addition, the changes in other operating assets and liabilities were related to cash receipts and disbursements in the normal course of business in both the Games and FinTech segments.
Cash flows used in investing activities increased by approximately $12.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, as compared to the same period in the prior year. This was primarily attributable to an increase in capital expenditures in our Games and FinTech segments.
Cash flows used in financing activities increased by approximately $8.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, as compared to the same period in the prior year. This was primarily related to payments of deferred consideration for acquisitions in our FinTech segment and less proceeds from the reduced option exercise activities.
Long-Term Debt
Our $125 million senior secured revolving credit facility (the “Revolver”) remained fully undrawn and we had an outstanding balance on the $600 million senior secured term loan (the “Term Loan”) of $580.5 million as of March 31, 2024.

For additional information regarding our credit agreement and other debt as well as interest rate risk refer to Part I, Item 3: Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk and “Note 11 — Long-Term Debt” in Part I, Item 1: Financial Statements.
Contractual Obligations
There were no material changes to our commitments under contractual obligations as compared to those disclosed in our Annual Report, other than a decrease to certain purchase obligations of approximately $16.6 million from those disclosed in our Annual Report and obligations discussed in “Note 4 — Leases,” “Note 5 — Business Combinations,” and “Note 11 — Long-Term Debt” in Part I, Item 1: Financial Statements of this quarterly report. We expect that cash provided by operating activities will be sufficient to meet such obligations during the foreseeable future.
34


We are involved in various legal proceedings in the ordinary course of our business. While we believe resolution of the claims brought against us, both individually and in aggregate, will not have a material adverse impact on our financial condition or results of operations, litigation of this nature is inherently unpredictable. Our views on these legal proceedings, including those described in “Note 12 — Commitments and Contingencies” in Part I, Item 1: Financial Statements of this quarterly report may change in the future. We intend to defend against these actions, and ultimately believe that we should prevail.
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
In the normal course of business, we have commercial arrangements with third-party vendors to provide cash for certain of our ATMs. For the use of these funds, we pay a usage fee on either the average daily balance of funds utilized multiplied by a contractually defined usage rate or the amounts supplied multiplied by a contractually defined usage rate. These usage fees, reflected as interest expense within the Statements of Operations, were approximately $4.8 million and $4.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively. The usage fees increased in the current reporting period as compared to the same period in the prior year as a result of elevated funds dispensing volumes at our customer locations and higher interest rates as a result of macro-economic conditions. We are exposed to interest rate risk to the extent that the applicable federal funds rate increases.
Under these agreements, the currency supplied by third-party vendors remains their sole property until the funds are dispensed. As these funds are not our assets, supplied cash is not reflected on our Balance Sheets.
Our primary commercial arrangement, the Contract Cash Solutions Agreement, as amended, is with Wells Fargo, N.A. (“Wells Fargo”). Wells Fargo provides us with cash up to $450 million with the ability to increase the amount permitted by the vault cash provider. The term of the agreement expires on December 1, 2026 and will automatically renew for additional one-year periods unless either party provides a ninety-day written notice of its intent not to renew. The outstanding balances of funds provided in connection with the agreement were approximately $319.3 million and $388.5 million as of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, respectively.
We are responsible for any losses of cash in the fund dispensing devices under this agreement, and we self-insure for this risk. We incurred no material losses related to this self-insurance for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively.
Effects of Inflation
Our monetary assets that primarily consist of cash, receivables, inventory, as well as our non-monetary assets that are mostly comprised of goodwill and other intangible assets, are not significantly affected by inflation. We believe that replacement costs of equipment, furniture, and leasehold improvements will not materially affect our operations. However, the rate of inflation affects our operating expenses, such as those for salaries and benefits, armored carrier expenses, telecommunications expenses, and equipment repair and maintenance services, which may not be readily recoverable in the financial terms under which we provide our Games and FinTech products and services to gaming operators.
Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk.
There have been no material changes in our reported market risks or risk management policies since the filing of our Annual Report.
In the normal course of business, we are exposed to foreign currency exchange risk. We operate and conduct business in foreign countries and, as a result, are exposed to movements in foreign currency exchange rates. Our exposure to foreign currency exchange risk related to our foreign operations is not material to our results of operations, cash flows, or financial condition. At present, we do not hedge this exposure; however, we continue to evaluate such foreign currency exchange risk.
In the normal course of business, we have commercial arrangements with third-party vendors to provide cash for certain of our fund dispensing devices. Under the terms of these agreements, we pay a monthly fund usage fee that is generally based upon the target federal funds rate. We are, therefore, exposed to interest rate risk to the
35


extent that the target federal funds rate increases. The outstanding balance of funds provided by our primary third-party vendor was approximately $319.3 million as of March 31, 2024; therefore, each 100 basis points increase in the target federal funds rate would have approximately a $3.2 million impact on income before tax over a 12-month period.
The senior secured term loan and senior secured revolving credit facility (“Credit Facilities”) bear interest at rates that can vary over time. We have the option of paying interest on the outstanding amounts under the Credit Facilities using a base rate or a benchmark rate, the secured overnight financing rate (“SOFR”). We have historically elected to pay interest based on the benchmark rate, and we expect to continue to do so for various maturities.
The weighted average interest rate on the Term Loan, which includes a 50 basis point floor, was 7.95% for the three months ended March 31, 2024. Based upon the outstanding balance of the Term Loan of $580.5 million as of March 31, 2024, each 100 basis points increase in the applicable SOFR would have a combined impact of approximately $5.8 million on interest expense over a 12-month period.
The interest rate is fixed at 5.00% for our senior unsecured notes due 2029; therefore, changing interest rates have no impact on the related interest expense.
At present, we do not hedge the risk related to the changes in the interest rate; however, we continue to evaluate such interest rate exposure.
Item 4. Controls and Procedures.
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
The Company’s management, with the participation of the principal executive officer and the principal financial officer, have evaluated the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)) as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on such evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer have concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of March 31, 2024 such that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is (i) recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and (ii) accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management, including its principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.
Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting during the Quarter Ended March 31, 2024
There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) that occurred during the period covered by this report that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION
Item 1. Legal Proceedings.
A discussion of our legal proceedings is contained in “Note 12 — Commitments and Contingencies” in Part I, Item 1: Financial Statements.
Item 1A. Risk Factors.
We refer you to documents filed by us with the SEC; specifically, “Item 1A. Risk Factors” in our most recently filed Annual Report and “Risk Factors” in our Current Report on Form 8-K filed on February 29, 2024, which identify material factors that make an investment in us speculative or risky and could materially affect our business, financial condition and future results. We also refer you to the factors and cautionary language set forth in the section entitled “Cautionary Information Regarding Forward-Looking Statements” in “Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Conditions and Results of Operations” of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. This Quarterly Report, including the accompanying Financial Statements, should be read in conjunction with such risks and other factors for a full understanding of our operations and financial condition. The risks described in our Annual Report and Current Report on Form 8-K filed on February 29, 2024 are not the only risks facing us. Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us, or that we currently deem to be immaterial, also may materially adversely affect our business, financial condition or operating results. The risk factors included in our Annual Report have not materially changed, except as reflected in the following new risk factors:
The Company has pursued, and may in the future pursue, strategic acquisitions, investments, strategic partnerships or other ventures, which could disrupt the Company’s ongoing business and expose the Company to various risks inherent in such transactions.
The Company has pursued, and plans to continually evaluate, potential acquisitions and investment opportunities in complementary businesses, technologies, services, or products, or to enter into strategic relationships. For example, as previously announced, on February 28, 2024, the Company entered into definitive agreements with International Game Technology PLC (“IGT”) pursuant to which, through a series of steps, IGT agreed to spin-off a newly created subsidiary, which will own IGT’s Global Gaming and PlayDigital businesses, with the Company acquiring the Global Gaming and PlayDigital businesses in a series of transactions. The Company may not be able to identify suitable acquisition, investment or strategic partnership candidates, or if it does identify suitable candidates in the future, it may not be able to complete those transactions on commercially favorable terms, or at all.
Any acquisition, strategic investment, or similar activity may disrupt the Company’s ongoing operations, divert management from their primary responsibilities, subject it to additional liabilities, increase its expenses, and otherwise adversely impact the Company’s business, financial condition, and results of operations. The Company may not achieve any or all of the anticipated financial results, cost synergies, or other benefits expected in connection with any such transaction, or strengthen its competitive position, or achieve other anticipated goals in a timely manner, or at all. Further, such transactions may be viewed negatively by current or potential customers, financial markets, or investors. Integration of acquired companies may also result in problems related to integration of technology and inexperienced management teams. Additionally, the Company may have difficulties retaining or assimilating acquired employees, including key personnel. Due diligence performed prior to closing acquisitions or investments or similar ventures may not uncover all risks or liabilities that could materially impact the Company’s business and financial results. The Company may not successfully integrate business, operational, and financial activities such as internal controls, cyber security measures, data privacy laws, and other corporate governance and regulatory matters, operations, personnel or products related to acquisitions and similar transactions. If the Company fails to successfully integrate any acquired companies or businesses, it could materially and adversely affect the Company’s business, reputation, financial condition, and results of operations. Acquisitions or similar activities may also reduce the Company’s cash available for operations and other uses, and could result in an increase in amortization expense related to identifiable assets acquired, potentially dilutive issuances of equity securities, or the incurrence of debt, any of which could subject the Company to material restrictions and harm its business, financial condition, and results of operations.

The Company may not complete the proposed acquisition of the IGT’s Global Gaming and PlayDigital businesses within the anticipated time frame or at all.
On February 28, 2024, the Company entered into definitive agreements with IGT pursuant to which, through a series of steps, IGT agreed to spin-off a newly created subsidiary, which will own IGT’s Global Gaming and PlayDigital businesses, with the Company acquiring the Global Gaming and PlayDigital businesses in a series of transactions. On February 28, 2024, the Company and a subsidiary of IGT also entered into a debt commitment letter and related letters with the lenders specified therein, and on March 29, 2024, the debt commitment letter and related letters were amended and restated (as amended, the “Commitment Letter”), pursuant to which the lenders committed to provide the Company and such subsidiary with up to $4.5 billion used to refinance the existing debt of the Company and its subsidiaries and distribute funds to IGT, with the remainder to be used to pay the combined company’s fees, costs and expenses in connection with the proposed transaction, subject to the satisfaction of certain customary closing conditions, including the consummation of the proposed transaction described above. Upon the closing of the proposed transaction, IGT shareholders are expected to receive shares of the Company’s common stock resulting in an approximate 54% ownership interest in the combined company, with the Company’s existing stockholders expected to own approximately 46% of the combined company. The proposed transaction is expected to close in early 2025, subject to receipt of regulatory approvals, stockholder and shareholder approvals, and other customary closing conditions.
Unanticipated developments or changes, including changes in law, the macroeconomic environment, and market conditions or regulatory or political conditions may affect the Company’s ability to complete the proposed transaction as currently expected and within the anticipated time frame or at all. Any delay in completing the proposed transaction could cause the Company not to realize some or all of the expected benefits or realize them on a different timeline than expected. In addition, the terms and conditions of the required regulatory authorizations and consents that are granted, if any, may impose requirements, limitations, or costs, or place restrictions on the conduct of the combined company or its subsidiaries or may materially delay the completion of the proposed transaction. If the completion of the proposed transaction is delayed or does not occur, this would likely result in a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, reputation, financial condition, and results of operations.
The proposed acquisition of IGT’s Global Gaming and PlayDigital businesses could divert management’s attention and resources from the Company’s ongoing business, result in the incurrence of significant or unanticipated costs and expenses, and otherwise adversely affect its business, financial condition, and results of operations.
Whether or not the proposed acquisition is completed, the Company’s businesses and operations may face material risks and challenges in connection therewith, including, without limitation:
the diversion of management’s attention from the Company’s ongoing business and operations as a result of the devotion of management’s attention to the proposed transaction;
maintenance of employee morale and retention and integration of key management and other employees;
retention of existing business and operational relationships, including with customers, suppliers, employees and other counterparties, and attracting new business and operational relationships;
execution and related risks in connection with financing transactions undertaken by the Company in connection with the proposed transaction;
potential or unknown liabilities associated with the IGT’s Global Gaming and PlayDigital businesses;
difficulty of incorporating acquired operations, technology, and rights into the Company’s business, and unanticipated expenses related to such integration;
38


difficulty of integrating IGT’s Global Gaming and PlayDigital businesses and the lack of control if such integration is delayed or not successfully implemented;
other significant costs and expenses incurred in connection with the proposed transaction; and
potential negative reactions from the financial markets.
Any of these factors could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition, results of operations, cash flows, and/or the price of the Company’s common stock.
Difficulties in integrating the IGT’s Global Gaming and PlayDigital businesses may result in the failure to realize anticipated synergies in the expected time frame or at all, present other operational challenges, and result in unforeseen expenses associated with the proposed transaction. In addition, the Company expects to incur significant costs in connection with the proposed transaction, including the cost of financing and other transaction costs, integration costs, legal and regulatory fees, and other costs that its management team believes are necessary to realize the anticipated synergies from the proposed transaction. The Company may also incur unforeseen or higher expenses associated with the proposed transaction. The incurrence of these costs could cause the Company’s financial results to differ from its expectations or the expectations of the investment community and could otherwise have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition, and results of operations, including in the periods in which they are incurred.
In addition, under the merger agreement for the proposed transaction with IGT, the Company is subject to certain restrictions on the conduct of its business prior to completing the proposed transaction. These restrictions may prevent the Company from taking certain actions with respect to capital stock or equity awards, amending organizational documents, taking certain actions with respect to material contracts and benefit plans, pursuing certain strategic transactions, acquiring and disposing assets, undertaking certain capital projects, incurring certain indebtedness, changing accounting or tax filing practices, settling certain legal proceedings, failing to maintain insurance, abandoning or selling certain material intellectual property and otherwise pursuing other actions that are not in the ordinary course of business, even if such actions could prove beneficial. These restrictions may impede the Company’s growth prior to the close of the proposed transaction, which could negatively impact its revenue, earnings and cash flows.
Any of the foregoing, including the failure to complete the proposed transaction or to realize the anticipated benefits and synergies of the proposed transaction in a timely manner or at all, and the impact of any indebtedness incurred by the Company in connection with the proposed transaction, would likely have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, reputation, stock price, financial condition, and results of operations.
The amount of debt that the Company and its subsidiaries may incur in connection with the proposed acquisition of IGT’s Global Gaming and PlayDigital businesses may be substantial.
If the proposed acquisition of IGT’s Global Gaming and PlayDigital businesses is consummated, the indebtedness to be incurred as contemplated by the Commitment Letter will become indebtedness of the Company, and will be guaranteed by the Company and any co-borrower of the term loan facility (in each case, except as to its own obligations) and each of the Company’s direct and indirect, existing and future wholly-owned domestic restricted subsidiaries which are not co-borrowers (after giving effect to the proposed transaction), subject to certain exceptions. The indebtedness will be secured by a first priority security interest in substantially all tangible and intangible assets of the Company, any co-borrower of the term loan facility and the guarantors, subject to certain permitted liens and other agreed upon exceptions.
Following consummation of the proposed transaction, including the incurrence of debt contemplated by the Commitment Letter described above, the combined company’s debt levels and debt service obligations will increase substantially. Given the increased debt levels and debt service obligations, the combined company may have less cash flow available for its business operations and may become increasingly vulnerable to general adverse economic and industry conditions and interest rate trends, which could limit its ability to obtain future financing.
39


The market price of the Company’s common stock may decline as a result of the proposed acquisition of IGT’s Global Gaming and PlayDigital businesses and the market price of the Company’s common stock after the consummation of the proposed transaction may be affected by factors different from those affecting the price of the Company’s common stock before the proposed transaction.
There can be no assurance that the market price of the Company’s common stock will rise or remain constant. If the proposed transaction is consummated and the market price of the Company’s common stock declines, the percentage decline as an absolute number and as a percentage of the overall market capitalization may be greater than would occur in the absence of the proposed transaction. In many cases, both the total market capitalization of an issuer and the market price of a share of such issuer's common stock following separation, divestiture or combination transactions are lower than they were before the consummation of such transactions, and the liquidity of the Company’s common stock could potentially be affected by any decreases in share price and investor sentiment following the consummation of the proposed transaction. Additionally, the Company cannot predict whether the market value of its common stock after the proposed transaction will be, in the aggregate, less than, equal to, or greater than the market value of such shares prior to the proposed transaction.
In addition, upon completion of the proposed transaction, the Company’s current stockholders will own interests in the combined company operating an expanded business with a different mix of assets, risks and liabilities. The Company’s current stockholders may not wish to continue to invest in the combined company, or for other reasons may wish to dispose of some or all of their common stock. If, following the consummation of the proposed transaction, large amounts of the Company’s common stock are sold, the price of the shares of the Company’s common stock could decline.
Further, the combined company’s results of operations, as well as the market price of the Company’s common stock after the proposed transaction, may be affected by factors in addition to those currently affecting the Company’s results of operations and the market price of the Company’s common stock, and other differences in assets and capitalization. Accordingly, the Company’s historical market price and financial results may not be indicative of these matters for the combined company after the consummation of the proposed transaction.
