Finally, the Company currently expects its fiscal 2013 tax rate will be in the range of 36%-40% compared to its fiscal 2012 full year effective tax rate benefit of 11.4%. As a result of the expected increase in revenues for the year, the expansion of operating margins and the change in the depreciable lives of certain gaming operations assets described above, Multimedia Games now expects to report fiscal 2013 diluted earnings per share (“EPS”) of $0.79-$0.84, representing a year-over-year increase of approximately 16%-24% over fiscal 2012 diluted EPS as adjusted for the new depreciation schedule and when applying a 38% tax rate (the mid-point of the Company’s expected tax rate for fiscal 2013) for fiscal 2012.
