Stocks in this article: WMS

“In addition, we are generating very exciting revenue growth from our interactive products and services as we continue to invest in attractive long-term growth opportunities,” continued Gamache. “We are extremely pleased by the initial success we are achieving in leveraging the value of our library of proven gaming content into the interactive markets, including social, casual and mobile entertainment. This success is reflected in the $9 million year-over-year growth in revenue from interactive products and services, and we anticipate a range of $35-to-$40 million in annual revenue for fiscal 2013 from these revenue streams. While the costs needed to build a sustainable foundation for interactive products and services impact near-term operating profitability, we believe this investment favorably positions WMS to participate in the attractive, high-margin growth potential of these opportunities that can lead to the creation of new value for our shareholders.”

Gamache concluded, “With improved product sales ship share, terrific titles and platforms for our gaming operations business and momentum with our interactive products and services, we fully expect to generate further progress across our worldwide business in the coming quarters.”
