Stocks in this article: CSTR

Davis said, "I am extremely proud of the many accomplishments we have achieved at Coinstar and look forward to teaming with Scott and the entire management team to ensure a smooth transition in the months ahead.  I have been fortunate to have worked closely with Scott during the past three years, and I can attest firsthand that he is the right executive with the right experience and background to lead Coinstar forward.  I believe that under Scott's leadership, Coinstar will continue to expand on its market-leading position and in new venture opportunities to drive future growth and value creation for our shareholders."

Added Di Valerio, "I am honored by the confidence the Board has in me to lead Coinstar through its next chapter of growth and share Paul's enthusiasm for Coinstar's automated retail businesses and the opportunities we have to deliver value to our shareholders.  I am excited to continue our work and lead our talented team in growing the business through the strategic initiatives and new ventures under way and in development." 

Coinstar also announced today that Galen C. Smith, senior vice president of finance at Redbox Automated Retail, LLC, Coinstar's wholly-owned subsidiary, will succeed Di Valerio as chief financial officer.  Smith, 36, joined Coinstar in 2009 and has served in his current role leading the finance function at Redbox since 2011, and prior as corporate VP, finance and treasurer for Coinstar.  The company has started the process to identify a successor for the Redbox finance leadership role.

Di Valerio added, "Galen is a valuable leader and proven executive in the Coinstar organization.  His extensive financial experience as well as his knowledge of Coinstar will contribute significantly to the company's continued growth and financial strength.  Galen's broad and comprehensive understanding of our businesses will be a valuable asset as we continue to execute on our strategy and work to enhance value for all Coinstar stakeholders."

Coinstar expects to report 2012 fourth quarter and full year revenue and core adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations within the ranges provided on October 25, 2012, with core diluted EPS from continuing operations trending at or above the high end of the range primarily due to lower company G&A expenses and certain tax benefits at Redbox.
