INSPIRED REPORTS STRONG FISCAL YEAR 2018 RESULTS

 

Fiscal 2018 Revenues Increase 15.4% Driven by Growth Across Business Segments
Net Loss Narrows Significantly Year Over Year
Fiscal 2018 Adjusted EBITDA1 Increases 32.9% to $54.1 Million
Revenues for Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2018 of $35.6 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $16.3 million

 

New York, New York, December 10, 2018 - Inspired Entertainment, Inc. (“Inspired”) (NASDAQ: INSE) today reported financial results for its fiscal year ended September 30, 2018.

 

Fiscal 2018 revenue and Adjusted EBITDA increased 15.4% and 32.9% year over year, to $141.4 million and $54.1 million, respectively. Revenue growth was achieved across both business segments primarily driven by the continued rollout of terminals in Greece, new customer revenue in Interactive and Virtual Sports, and an increase in revenue from new channels offered to existing customers. Adjusted EBITDA margin2 increased to 39.5%, from 34.7% in the prior year, primarily as a result of a more profitable revenue mix, more effective business processes, and operating leverage in the cost structure.

 

Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 were $35.6 million and $16.3 million, respectively. Fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 had significant nil margin sales of $1.0 million and hardware sales to Colombia of $2.9 million. Excluding these sales, revenue and Adjusted EBITDA grew 14.0% and 37.2% for the quarter, respectively, illustrating the revenue momentum and operating leverage inherent in the recurring revenue business model.

“In all measures, we are pleased with our performance in fiscal year 2018. Both of our segments delivered revenue growth and we were able to increase our Adjusted EBITDA margin by 475 basis points, leading us to report Adjusted EBITDA of $54.1 million, up 32.9% from $40.7 million last year,” said Lorne Weil, Executive Chairman of Inspired.

 

Mr. Weil continued, “While we continue to focus on maintaining that growth, we are also intentionally targeting growth across our businesses in North America. I am optimistic that we can execute on this strategy much as we have done in Greece, where, in less than two years, we have grown the Virtual Sports business exponentially, recently adding another channel of content, and have become the largest supplier of terminals in the marketplace.”

 

Mr. Weil added, “We believe North America will ramp up and become a larger part of our business. We recently launched Virtual Sports for our first major US lottery customer and we received a warm reception and positive feedback on our products at the G2E tradeshow in Las Vegas. North American lottery and gaming operators are looking for innovative new products that have proven performance, and with Greece as an example, we believe our products will scale.”

 

 

Fiscal 2018 and Recent Highlights

During the period, 3,000 terminals were awarded, taking the Company’s contracted total to 8,360 terminals, which should be installed and live by the middle of 2019. The performance of Inspired’s Greek terminals continues to be strong compared to other suppliers.

Strong Growth in Italy Estate – Inspired has increased its Customer Gross Win per unit per day in Italy by 14.0% (in Euros) compared to the same period last year, principally driven by new content releases.

Sisal Contract Extension and Additional VLT Terminals in Italy - During the period, the Company signed a contract extension with Sisal for a further four years, which included the provision of 2,024 VLT terminals.

Contract Extensions with Paddy Power and Betfred – Contract extensions included additional deployments of terminals, further increasing the size of the Company’s UK LBO estate.

Virtual Sports Launched with Danske Spil – The Company reached an agreement with the Danish National Lottery, Danske Spil, to supply Virtual Sports to retail venues operated by Danske Spil across Denmark, which went live in November 2018.

Financial

 

Refinancing – During the period, the Company announced the completion of an approximately $150 million refinancing of its borrowing facilities in a series of transactions.

Change in Fiscal Year End – Inspired has changed its fiscal year end from September 30 to December 31. With this fiscal year change, the Company intends to file transitional financial information for the period from October 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018.

 

“During the fiscal year, we were able to perform well across all segments and successfully strengthen our balance sheet, reduce our interest rate and add cash and undrawn capacity by refinancing our senior bank debt,” said Stewart Baker, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Inspired. “We believe this focus on strengthening our operations and our balance sheet in order to improve free cash flow will help us to deliver on our goals and strategic priorities.”

 

Management Outlook and Commentary

 

Recently it was announced that the reduction in the maximum FOBT betting stake mandated by the Triennial Review would be accelerated from October 2019 to April 2019. This does not change the Company’s estimate of the projected impact of the reduction in stake on our Adjusted EBITDA, after taking into account multiple moving pieces, of approximately $10 million to $11 million annually on a steady state basis. However, the acceleration in start date alters the timing of many of these pieces, including the benefits of the mitigation action to be taken by the Company’s LBO customers, and therefore Management is not comfortable providing calendar 2019 guidance at this time.

 

 

 

 

Overview of Consolidated Full Year Results

 

Total revenue for the year ended September 30, 2018 increased by $18.8 million year over year, or 15.4%, to $141.4 million on a reported basis. Favorable currency movements3 accounted for $7.8 million of the increase, which was partly offset by a $1.6 million decrease due to six fewer days in the 2018 period4. On a like-for-like5 basis, revenue increased by $12.6 million, or 10.4%.

 

SBG revenue increased by $9.9 million, or 11.3%, on a like-or-like basis, comprised of growth in service revenue of $15.1 million offset by a reduction in hardware sales of $5.2 million.

 

SBG service revenue increased by $15.1 million, or 20.7%, on a like-for-like basis, primarily due to Greece driving total incremental revenue of $14.3 million, which included $6.8 million of additional participation revenue, $2.3 million of other recurring revenue and $5.2 million of additional revenue from software license sales.

 

The decrease in SBG hardware revenue was driven by lower hardware sales into Greece and Colombia of $5.4 million and $3.5 million, respectively. This was partly offset by SBG terminal sales in the UK of $2.1 million and Electronic Table Games (“ETG”) sales of $1.3 million.

 

Virtual Sports revenue increased by $2.7 million, or 8.1%, on a like-for-like basis, to $37.8 million, driven by new customer revenue in Interactive and new Virtual Sports customers in Greece, Ireland, Finland and Poland, as well as an increase in revenue from existing customers, due in part to additional channels offered. Growth was negatively affected by $1.7 million due to a reduction in revenue from long-term Virtual Sports licenses that have now come to an end, $0.7 million due to a timing difference in the 2018 contract renewal of a major customer and $0.5 million due to the recognition of revenues previously unreported to us in 2017. Excluding these items, underlying Virtual Sports revenue increased by $5.4 million, or 20.8%, with Virtual Sports land-based and online customers accounting for $4.2 million of the increase and $1.2 million from Interactive.

 

Cost of sales, excluding depreciation and amortization, which includes machine cost of sales, consumables, content royalties and connectivity costs, increased by $4.1 million, or 15.4%, on a reported basis, to $30.8 million. On a like-for-like basis, cost of sales increased by $2.5 million, or 9.6%.

 

Cost of service increased by $5.7 million, or 36.9%, on a like-for-like basis, mainly due to an increase in Greece SBG service costs of $3.5 million and an increase to service UK SBG terminals of $2.1 million.

 

Cost of hardware decreased by $3.2 million, or 29.6%, on a like-for-like basis, due to lower nil margin hardware sales in Greece and lower hardware sales in Colombia. This was partly offset by higher nil margin sales of the Flex 4k™ product terminal and other hardware sales in the UK, ETG and Italian markets.

 

SG&A expenses increased by $1.8 million, or 3.1%, on a reported basis, to $60.1 million. On a like-for-like basis, SG&A expenses decreased by $0.7 million, or 1.3%. This decrease was driven by staff related cost savings of $4.4 million, offset by additional public company costs of $1.8 million due to the prior period containing only nine months of post-Business Combination transaction expenses, as well as a decrease in labor capitalization of $1.1 million due to the mix of projects and incremental group restructuring costs of $0.5 million.

4 Days Movement is a non-GAAP financial measure. See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below for definition.

5 Adjusted for Currency Movement and Days Movement impacts. See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below for definition.

 

 

 

 

During the period, the Company incurred an impairment expense, considered to be outside the normal course of business, of $7.7 million, following a review of key strategic areas whereas the carrying value of these assets were deemed to be in excess of their current fair value. Of the total impairment, $4.9 million was related to intangible fixed assets, $0.6 million to accrued income, $1.9 million to prepayments and $0.3 million to trade and other debtors.

 

Depreciation and amortization increased by $8.0 million, or 23.7%, on a reported basis, to $41.8 million. On a like-for-like basis, depreciation and amortization increased by $6.2 million, or 18.6%. This increase was driven by additional machine and machine related depreciation on SBG of $1.7 million and additional amortization in connection with new platforms and games going live on SBG ($4.5 million) and Virtual Sports ($0.4 million). This increase was partly offset by a reduction of non-market specific depreciation and amortization of $0.4 million.

 

On a reported basis, net operating result improved from a loss of $11.9 million in 2017 to a loss of $7.3 million in 2018. On a like-for-like basis, net operating loss improved by $4.7 million, mainly due to an increase in revenue and reduction in transaction expenses, partly offset by higher cost of sales, depreciation and amortization, impairment expense and stock-based compensation.

 

Adjusted EBITDA, which the Company considers an important underlying business performance measure, increased by 32.9% year over year to $54.1 million before adjusting for foreign currency impact. After adjusting for foreign currency impact, Adjusted EBITDA increased 26.0%. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. Our definition of the measure and its reconciliation to net loss are provided later in this release.

(1) Includes all SBG terminals in which the Company takes a participation revenue share across all territories.

 

 

 

 

In the period ended September 30, 2018, SBG revenue increased $14.5 million, to $103.6 million, on a reported basis. On a like-for-like basis, SBG revenue increased by $9.9 million, or 11.3%.

 

SBG service revenue increased by $19.1 million, or 25.8%, on a reported basis. On a like-for-like basis, SBG service revenue increased by $15.1 million, or 20.7%, to $93.2 million, primarily due to an increase in Greece of $14.3 million, which included additional participation revenue of $6.8 million, other recurring revenue of $2.3 million, and $5.2 million of additional revenue from software license sales.

 

UK LBO Customer Gross Win per unit per day grew by 1.3%. These gains were offset by revised terms agreed on SBG contract renewals with three major UK LBO customers. The contract renewals allowed us to continue to generate revenue without the obligation to make further capital investment.

 

SBG hardware revenue decreased by $4.6 million to $10.5 million, on a reported basis. On a like-for-like basis, SBG hardware revenue decreased by $5.2 million, principally due to higher terminal sales in 2017 into Greece and Colombia totaling $5.4 million and $3.5 million, respectively. This was partly offset by higher sales in 2018 in the UK of $2.1 million and ETG sales of $1.3 million.

 

SBG cost of sales (excluding depreciation and amortization) increased by $3.6 million to $26.2 million, on a reported basis. On a like-for-like basis, cost of sales increased by $2.3 million. This was principally due to an increase in service costs of $5.5 million due to Greek SBG service costs of $3.5 million as well as additional UK machine consumable costs of $1.3 million and other cost of service in the UK of $0.8 million. This was partly offset by lower hardware costs of $3.2 million due to lower hardware sales in Greece and Colombia mitigating the higher hardware costs in the UK and ETG markets.

 

SBG SG&A expenses increased by $0.1 million to $15.7 million, on a reported basis. On a like-for-like basis, SBG SG&A decreased $0.5 million driven by staff related cost savings.

 

During the period, an impairment expense considered to be outside the normal course of business amounted to $4.7 million, on a reported basis, due to the review of key strategic areas by the Office of the Executive Chairman.

 

In the year ended September 30, 2018, SBG operating profit decreased by $1.8 million to $22.7 million, on a reported basis. On a like-for-like basis, SBG operating profit decreased by $2.8 million. This was primarily due to the impairment expense and additional depreciation and amortization, offset by an increase in revenue.

Virtual Sports revenue increased $4.3 million, on a reported basis. On a like-for-like basis, Virtual Sports revenue increased by $2.7 million, or 8.1% to $37.8 million.

 

Recurring revenue from Virtual Sports land-based and online increased $4.2 million in fiscal 2018, due to new customer revenue in Finland of $0.5 million as well as continued growth in Greece, UK, Ireland, Poland and Italy of $1.8 million, $0.9 million, $0.4 million, $0.3 million and $0.2 million, respectively. Interactive revenue increase by $1.2 million driven by further penetration into the mobile marketplace, where the number of our customers increased from 10 to 27. This growth was negatively affected by $1.7 million due to a reduction in revenue from long-term Virtual Sports licenses that have now come to an end, $0.7 million due to a timing difference in the 2018 contract renewal of a major customer and $0.5 million due to the recognition of revenues previously unreported to us in 2017.

 

Virtual Sports cost of service increased by $0.5 million to $4.6 million, on a reported basis. On a like-for-like basis, cost of service increased by $0.3 million, due to additional third-party costs payable on new recurring contracts.

 

Virtual Sports SG&A expenses increased by $1.3 million on a reported basis. On a like-for-like basis, Virtual Sports SG&A increased $1.0 million, which was primarily due to lower labor capitalization driven by project mix.

 

An impairment expense in the period due to the review of key strategic areas by the Office of the Executive Chairman amounted to $3.0 million, on a reported basis.

 

Virtual Sports operating profit decreased by $1.2 million to $16.0 million, on a reported basis. On a like-for-like basis this represented a decrease of $2.0 million. This was primarily due to the Impairment expense and additional SG&A, offset by an increase in revenue.

 

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 

We use certain non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted EBITDA, to analyze our operating performance. We use these financial measures to manage our business on a day-to-day basis and we believe that they are the most relevant measures of our performance. We believe that these measures are also commonly used in our industry to measure performance. For these reasons, we believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide expanded insight into our business, in addition to standard U.S. GAAP financial measures. There are no specific rules or regulations for defining and using non-GAAP financial measures, and as a result the measures we use may not be comparable to measures used by other companies, even if they have similar labels. The presentation of non-GAAP financial information should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, or superior to, financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. You should consider our non-GAAP financial measures in conjunction with our U.S. GAAP financial measures.

 

We define our non-GAAP financial measures as follows:

 

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net loss excluding depreciation and amortization, interest expense, interest income and income tax expense, and other additional specified exclusions and adjustments. Such additional excluded amounts include stock-based compensation, U.S. GAAP charges where the associated liability is expected to be settled in stock, and changes in the value of earnout liabilities and income and expenditure in relation to legacy portions of the business (being those portions where trading no longer occurs) including closed defined benefit pension schemes. Additional adjustments are made for items considered outside the normal course of business, including (1) restructuring costs, which include charges attributable to employee severance, management changes, restructuring and integration (2) merger and acquisition costs and (3) gains or losses not in the ordinary course of business.

 

 

 

 

We believe Adjusted EBITDA, when considered along with other performance measures, is a particularly useful performance measure, because it focuses on certain operating drivers of the business, including sales growth, operating costs, selling and administrative expense and other operating income and expense. We believe Adjusted EBITDA can provide a more complete understanding of our operating results and the trends to which we are subject, and an enhanced overall understanding of our financial performance and prospects for the future. Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of liquidity or cash flows from operations or a measure comparable to net income or loss, because it does not take into account certain aspects of our operating performance (for example, it excludes non-recurring gains and losses which are not deemed to be a normal part of underlying business activities). Our use of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to the use by other companies of similarly termed measures. Management compensates for these limitations by using Adjusted EBITDA as only one of several measures for evaluating our operating performance. In addition, capital expenditures, which affect depreciation and amortization, interest expense, and income tax benefit (expense), are evaluated separately by management.

 

Adjusted Revenue (Revenue Excluding Nil Margin Hardware Sales) is defined as revenue excluding hardware sales that are sold at nil margin with the intention of securing longer term recurring revenue streams. For the years ending September 24, 2016 and earlier, this measure also removed analogue sales, on the basis that such sales were no longer considered part of our core business.

 

Constant Currency. Currency impacts shown have been calculated as the current-period average GBP: USD rate less the equivalent average rate in the prior period, multiplied by the current period amount in our functional currency (GBP). The remaining difference, referred to as constant currency, is calculated as the difference in our functional currency, multiplied by the prior-period average GBP: USD rate, as a proxy for constant currency movement.

 

Currency Movement represents the difference between the results in our reporting currency (USD) and the results on a Constant Currency basis.

 

Days Movement represents values relating to the additional six days in the 2017 half year as compared to the 2018 half year using specific information where available and otherwise applying a straight-line method that reflects pro-rated values.

 

Like-for-Like Variance represents the difference between the results in our reporting currency calculated under GAAP and the results after adjusting for Currency Movement and Days Movement impacts.

 

Reconciliations from net loss, as shown in our Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Loss included elsewhere in this release, to Adjusted EBITDA are shown below.
