Multimedia Games CEO Discusses F3Q2011 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

Today's call and webcast may include non-GAAP financial measures within the meaning of Regulation G. A reconciliation of all non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP can be found in the company's current report on Form 8-K as filed with the SEC today, and can be found on our website in the Investor Relations section. Financial and operating metrics provided during today's call maybe approximate. Please refer to the company's financial statements as provided in the press release for definitive numbers. Thank you.

And with that, I will turn it over to Patrick Ramsey, our President and CEO.

Patrick Ramsey

Thank you, Uri and good morning, everyone. Thank you for joining us on this call. With me here in Austin are Uri Clinton, General Counsel; Adam Chibib, Chief Financial Officer and Joaquin Aviles, Vice President Technology; Mick Roemer, our Senior Vice President of Sales has joined us telephonically from the State of Washington.

This morning we reported strong financial results our third fiscal quarter with 15% revenue growth representing our highest quarterly year-over-year improvement this year. Our momentum continues as we grew sequentially from $1.4 million in operating income in the second quarter to $2.6 million in this third quarter. Similarly, diluted earnings per share rose sequentially from $0.04 to $0.10.

In addition, our cash position improved significantly and now stands at $49.2 million, driven primarily in the quarter by the receipt of approximately $18 million for the United States Treasury Department, which added to the consistent cash flow we have been generating from operation. For the first time in seven years our cash levels exceed our debt levels.

The top line growth reflects year-over-year improvement in both our gaming operations revenue and our revenue from unit sales, which is clearly the result of so much hard work from our team members and our laser focus on developing new proprietary products and technologies that are increasingly resonating with our customers and their players. I will go through some of our key markets in more details after Adam’s financial overview, but it is important to note that our top line growth continues to be driven by our own products being placed in markets that are core to our long-term strategy and profitability. This growth has been strong enough to counter balance some of the declines we are seeing in markets such as Mexico and Alabama. We are pleased with our third quarter results because there is reflect continued success in what we believe is a critical transition year for our company.
