  • As part of its annual impairment review, the Company recorded a $1.4 million non-cash impairment charge as of December 31, 2011 associated with the write-down of certain gaming machines and systems in inventory as well as infrastructure costs related to the closure of one venue in the Philippines in April 2011.
  • Cash balance was $12.8 million as of December 31, 2011 compared to $10.2 million as of December 31, 2010.

  • The Company is making progress on the development of its casino projects in the Pailin and Kampot Provinces of Cambodia with Dreamworld Casino Pailin expected to open on May 9, 2012 and Dreamworld Casino Kampot expected to open in the third quarter of 2012.

Clarence Chung, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Entertainment Gaming Asia, commented, “2011 was a milestone year for the Company. It marks the third consecutive year of earnings growth since we began to implement our restructuring efforts and the achievement of record-breaking financial performance. For the 2011 fiscal year, we generated nearly $12 million in adjusted EBITDA, demonstrating dramatic improvement from essentially breakeven results just three years ago, and recorded an annual net profit for the first time in the Company’s history. This enhanced ability to generate cash flow enabled us to increase our cash position for the year while still investing in our strategic growth plans and strengthening our balance sheet. We enter 2012 a stronger Company with a solid foundation from which to invest in our core participation business and to expand our gaming operations to include the development and operation of our own casinos in the Indo-China region.”
