PokerTek, Inc. (NASDAQ: PTEK) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011.

Mark Roberson, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, commented, “During the quarter, we continued to improve our margins, control our operating expenses and drive revenue growth on a year-over-year basis. In addition, the private placement transaction further improved our balance sheet and provides additional growth capital.

“We are seeing exceptional results from our recent ProCore Blackjack installations, and our entire inventory stock has been installed at customer locations. With our PokerPro business generating strong margins and solid financial results, we expect ProCore to be a powerful growth catalyst as we expand our market penetration.”

Financial Summary

Total revenue for the second quarter of 2011 increased 23% to $1.6 million compared to $1.3 million for the second quarter of 2010. For the first half of 2011, revenue increased 14% to $3.3 million from $2.9 million in the prior year period. Revenue growth was driven primarily by the increase in revenue producing gaming tables in our target markets.

Gross profit increased 46% to $1.1 million for the second quarter of 2011 as compared to $0.8 million for the second quarter of 2010. Gross profit margin increased 36% to 71% compared to 60% for the prior year period. For the first half of 2011, gross profit increased from $1.7 million to $2.3 million. The increase in gross profit was primarily attributable to increased revenues, improved asset utilization and reduced product costs.

Operating expenses decreased 8% to $1.5 million for the second quarter of 2011 from $1.6 million for the second quarter of 2010. For the first half of 2011, operating expenses decreased 5% from $3.3 million to $3.1 million. We continue to maintain a lean operating structure, even as we invest in the development of Blackjack on the ProCore platform and drive increased market penetration with PokerPro.

Net loss from continuing operations improved 55% for the second quarter of 2011 to $0.4 million ($0.06 per share) from $0.9 million ($0.15 per share) for comparable period of 2010. For the first half of 2011, net loss from continuing operations improved 49% from $1.7 million ($0.29 per share) to $0.9 million ($0.13 per share).

Including the results of discontinued operations, quarterly net loss improved 80% to $0.4 million ($0.06 per share) from $2.0 million ($0.35 per share ) and, on a year to date basis, improved 70% from $2.9 million ($0.50 per share) to $0.9 million ($0.13 per share).

EBITDAS from continuing operations, a non-GAAP financial measure, improved to a profit of $133 thousand for the second quarter for 2011, compared to a loss of $223 thousand in the prior–year period. For the first half of 2011, EBITDAS improved from a loss of $121 thousand to a profit of $254 thousand.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Information

The Company’s cash used in continuing operations was $0.3 million for both the first half of 2011 and 2010. Cash flow was essentially flat as continued improvements in earnings were partially offset by increased working capital to support the rollout of the new ProCore platform.

The Company successfully closed a private placement transaction led by officers and directors of the Company increasing the Company’s liquidity and strengthening its balance sheet.

As of June 30, 2011, the Company’s cash balance was $1.2 million.

Unit Count Information

Gaming positions deployed worldwide totaled 2,710 as of June 30, 2011 comprised of 263 PokerPro tables and 16 Blackjack Pro tables. As of June 30, 2010, 2184 gaming positions were deployed comprised of 220 PokerPro tables.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

PokerTek, Inc. prepares its consolidated financial statements in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). In addition to disclosing financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP, the company discloses information regarding EBITDAS, which differs from the term EBITDA as it is commonly used. In addition to adjusting net income (loss) from continuing operations to exclude taxes, interest, and depreciation and amortization, EBITDAS also excludes noncash charges, certain non-recurring charges and share-based compensation expense. EBITDA and EBITDAS are not measures of performance defined in accordance with GAAP. However, EBITDAS is used internally in planning and evaluating the company’s operating performance. Accordingly, management believes that disclosure of this metric offers investors, bankers and other stakeholders an additional view of the company’s operations that, when coupled with the GAAP results, provides a more complete understanding of the company’s financial results.

EBITDAS should not be considered as an alternative to net loss or to net cash used in operating activities as a measure of operating results or of liquidity. It may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies, and it excludes financial information that some may consider important in evaluating the company’s performance. A reconciliation of GAAP net loss from continuing operations to EBITDAS is included in the accompanying financial schedules.
