  • Revenues increased 13% to $301 million in the third quarter, primarily due to increases in the interactive businesses.  Excluding the interactive businesses, revenues were flat.
  • Gross margin decreased to 59% from 62% in the third quarter, primarily due to the inclusion of the interactive businesses and lower MegaJackpots® yields.
  • Installed base increases were primarily driven by global lease operations growth.
  • Excluding the positive impact from the interactive businesses, average revenue per unit per day in the third quarter was $50.20, down 4% sequentially and 7% over the prior year quarter, mainly due to lower MegaJackpots® yields and a higher mix of lower-yielding units in the installed base.
  • Double Down bookings per daily user were $0.25 in the third quarter compared to $0.24 in the second quarter subsequent to acquisition.
  • Double Down monthly users were 5.2 million as of June 30, 2012, a decrease of 7% when compared to March 31, 2012.

  • Revenues increased 5% to $232 million in the third quarter, primarily due to higher North American machine sales, partially offset by lower international machine sales.  
  • Units recognized increased 30% in the third quarter, due to an increase in new openings in North America and a 44% increase in North America replacement units.
  • Average machine sales price decreased 11% in the third quarter, mainly due to an unfavorable pricing mix related to increased lottery and used game sales.
  • North America gross margin increased to 56% from 55% due to higher production volumes.

  • Other expense, net, in the third quarter totaled $21 million compared to $19 million in the prior year quarter, primarily attributable to reduced interest income.

  • Cash and working capital decreased 41% and 31%, respectively, mainly as a result of cash deployed in connection with the acquisition of Double Down and share repurchases.
  • On June 14, 2012 the company announced a new $1.0 billion share repurchase authorization and entered into a $400 million accelerated stock buyback (ASB) agreement to repurchase its common stock.
  • Contractual debt obligations increased $280 million in the third quarter due to increased borrowings under the company's revolving credit facility used to fund a portion of the ASB.
  • Under the ASB, the company received 21 million shares in June and an additional 2 million shares in July.  The company may receive additional shares until the completion of the repurchase period, which is expected to end during this calendar year.
  • Also during the third quarter, the company repurchased 2 million shares of its common stock in the open market under its previous authorization at an average price of $14.48 per share for a total cost of $25 million.

References to per share amounts in this release are based on diluted shares of common stock, unless otherwise specified.

Outlook

Based on current expectations and the operating results for the third quarter of fiscal 2012, the company is reiterating its fiscal year 2012 guidance for adjusted earnings from continuing operations of $0.98 to $1.04 per share. This guidance assumes our fully diluted weighted average shares outstanding will be 291 million for fiscal 2012. GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations for fiscal year 2012 will include acquisition-related expenses, the amount of which are not determinable at this time, and may also include charges for impairment, acquisition-related expenses, resolution of certain tax items, and/or other items that are not currently determinable, but may be significant. For this reason, the Company is unable to provide full-year GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations estimates at this time.
