PART I

 

 

ITEM 1. BUSINESS

BUSINESS

We are an established global gaming company providing to casinos specialized services that improve their table game operations.  Our services are designed to enhance the player’s experience and increase the profitability of our clients and include the design, development, manufacture and acquisition of proprietary table games and associated technology, platforms, systems, expert consultation and other services.

History and Development of Galaxy Gaming

In 1997, Galaxy Gaming Corporation (“GGCORP”) was formed and distributed a side bet for the game of blackjack known as Horseshoe Blackjack.  GGCORP later modified the invention, changed its name to Lucky Ladies and filed for a patent, which was later granted.

In 2002, Galaxy Gaming, LLC (“GGLLC”) acquired the business and assets of GGCORP.  Lucky Ladies remained GGLLC’s only product until late 2002, when it debuted a new casino poker game called Texas Shootout.  This game quickly became popular with casinos and their customers.  GGLLC later increased its sales force, expanded its distribution channels and introduced new products and services using reinvested earnings.

Galaxy Gaming, Inc. (“GGINC”) was formed in 2006 and subsequently acquired the assets and business operations of GGLLC.

In 2009, GGINC executed a share exchange and reverse merger with Secured Diversified Investment, Ltd. (“SDI”).  After the reverse merger, SDI merged with its wholly-owned subsidiary, GGINC, pursuant to Nevada Revised Statutes 92A.180 and changed the name of the company formerly known as SDI to “Galaxy Gaming, Inc.” which remains the operating company as of the date of this report.

Products and Services

Casinos use our proprietary products and services to enhance their gaming floor operations and improve their profitability, productivity and security, as well as to offer popular cutting-edge gaming entertainment content and technology to their players.  We market our products and services to land-based, riverboat, cruise ship and internet gaming companies located in North America, the Caribbean, Central America, the British Isles, Europe and Africa and to cruise ships and internet gaming sites worldwide.  We currently serve over 600 casinos that use our enhancements on approximately 5,000 gaming tables.  Additional information regarding our products and services may be found on our website, www.galaxygaming.com.  Information found on the website should not be considered part of this report.

Proprietary Table Games. Casinos use Proprietary Table Games in lieu of those games in the public domain (e.g. Blackjack, Craps, Roulette, etc.) because of their popularity with players and to increase profitability.  Typically, Proprietary Table Games are grouped into two product types referred to as “Side Bets” and “Premium Games.”  Side Bets are proprietary features and wagering schemes typically added to public domain games such as poker, baccarat, pai gow poker, craps and blackjack table games.  Examples of our Side Bets include Lucky Ladies, 21+3 and Bonus Craps.  Premium Games are unique stand-alone games with their own unique set of rules and strategies.  Examples of our Premium Games include High Card Flush, Three Card Poker and Texas Shootout.  Generally, Premium Games generate higher revenue per table placement than the Side Bet games.

Enhanced Table Systems.  Enhanced Table Systems are electronic enhancements used on casino table games to add to player appeal and to enhance game security.  An example in this category is our Bonus Jackpot System (“BJS”), an advanced electronic system installed on gaming tables designed to seamlessly collect data by detecting player wagers and other game activities.  This valuable information is processed and used to improve casino operations by evaluating game play, to improve dealer efficiency and to reward players through the offering of jackpots and other bonusing mechanisms.  Typically, the BJS system includes an electronic video display, known as TableVision, which shows game information designed to generate additional player interest and to promote various aspects of the game.  The BJS system is also used to network numerous gaming tables together into a common system either within a casino or the interconnection of multiple casinos, which we refer to as our Inter-Casino Jackpot System.

e-Tables.  In 2011, we licensed worldwide rights (excluding Oklahoma, Kentucky and the Caribbean) to the TableMAX e-Table system.  Simultaneously we obtained e-Table rights to the casino table games Caribbean Stud, Caribbean Draw, Progressive Blackjack, Texas Hold’em Bonus and Blackjack Bullets.  A description of this agreement is contained in Note 8 of our audited financial statements included in Item 8.  The TableMAX e-Table system is a fully automated, dealer-less, multi-player electronic table game platform.  In July 2016, we notified TableMAX Corporation of our intent to terminate our agreement with them effective December 31, 2016.  As of the date of this report, we are temporarily providing service on behalf of TableMAX Corporation for one tribal casino operator.

SpectrumVision.  In 2014, we licensed worldwide rights to a patented technology that detects invisible card markings.  In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the number of businesses that offer tools that allow individuals to cheat casinos and card rooms.  These businesses, typically located in China or Eastern Europe, are booming due to the significant revenues they are deriving from sales of cheating products all around the world.  These products typically include daubs or inks that can be used by players to mark cards.  The markings can only be seen by using discrete technology, special glasses or contact lenses.  If a player is able to recognize any face down cards on the table or next card to be dealt, the player can obtain a significant edge resulting in an unfair game and potential significant loses to casinos or other players.  Upon licensing, we further refined and developed the technology which, we branded SpectrumVision.  The SpectrumVision technology utilizes highly specialized and customized optics to see markings on playing cards that would otherwise be invisible or undetectable to the naked eye and surveillance cameras.  SpectrumVision has the ability to see such marking using the entire spectrum of ultra-violet, infrared and natural light.  Units of SpectrumVision began shipping in 2015.

Recurring Revenue & Gross Margins

The majority of our clients contract with us to use our services on a month-to-month basis with typically a 30 – 45 day termination notice requirement.  We invoice our clients monthly (a majority of whom are in advance) unless they have contracted with us to pay for actual services used, in which case we bill in arrears.  Recurring revenues accounted for over 99% of our total revenues in 2016 and generally have few direct costs thereby generating high gross profit margins in excess of 90%.  In lieu of reporting as “gross profit,” this amount would be comparable to “revenues less cost of ancillary products and assembled components” shown on our financial statements included in this report.

For more information about our revenues, operating income and assets, see “Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” and “Item 8. Financial Statements and Supplementary Data” included in this report.

STRATEGY

We believe that entertaining casino games will enhance players’ experiences and generate brand loyalty, resulting in increased profits for our casino clients.  We continue to expand our product offering by focusing on innovative products and services.  As we continue to develop and enhance our brand and reputation, we anticipate expanding to new product lines and services that complement our overall strategy and enhance our market presence.

Our long-term business strategy focuses on increasing our value to our casino clients by offering them enhanced services and support, and by producing innovative products and game play methodologies that their players enjoy.  We believe that by increasing the value of our products and services to our clients, we can continue to build our recurring revenues in both existing and emerging markets.  To achieve this objective, we employ the following strategies:

 

1.

Expand our inventory of services, products and technologies;

 

2.

Increase our per unit price point by leveraging our Enhanced Table Systems;

 

3.

Expand our revenues from ancillary products.

Expand our inventory of services, products and technologies.  Historically, only one company in the table game industry, Scientific Games, Inc. (formerly SHFL Entertainment, Inc.)  (“Scientific Games”), has had the ability to offer casinos nearly all of the table game products they require.  Scientific Games’ unique ability to offer numerous products both in terms of game content and what they term as “utility” products (e.g. card shufflers, smart dealing shoes, baccarat displays, etc.), has stifled competition from other companies, including us, who are disadvantaged without a complete product line offering.  Our strategy is to be an alternative for casino operators by offering a complete and comprehensive portfolio of services, games, products, systems, technologies and methodologies for casino table games.  If we achieve this objective, we intend to offer complete turn-key systems rather than compete solely as a purveyor of individual products.  We continuously develop and/or seek to acquire new proprietary table games to complement our existing offerings and to extend our penetration of proprietary table games on the casino floor.  We expect to accomplish this strategic shift through internal development of new products and services as well as continued acquisitions from others.  By offering casinos a complete package of product and services, we believe our competitiveness in the marketplace will increase.

Increase our per unit price point by leveraging our Enhanced Table Systems.  Our Enhanced Table Systems permit us the opportunity to significantly increase the amount of recurring revenue we receive from each table game placement.  Accordingly, our goal is to concentrate on installing new game placements using one or more of our Enhanced Table Systems and to convert our existing Proprietary Table Game placements that currently do not incorporate our Enhanced Table Systems.  We have modified most of our Premium Table Games and many of our Side Bets to benefit from the economics this new system affords us.  In the future, we intend to be able to offer this platform for all games.

Expand our revenues from ancillary products.  Historically, the amount of revenue we received from ancillary products is a small percentage of our total revenues.  Although we will continue to focus on our core business leading to the accumulation of high-margin

5


recurring revenues, we believe there exists opportunities for us to expand our product offerings, within the table game category, without disrupting our current business operations.  One such example is the continued growth of revenues we receive from on-line gaming, which continues to grow each quarter.  We are researching other opportunities and expect our revenue from ancillary products to steadily increase.

COMPETITION

We compete with several companies that develop and provide proprietary table games, electronic platforms, game enhancements and services.  We believe that the principal competitive factors in our market include products and services that appeal to casinos and players, jurisdictional approvals and a well-developed sales and distribution network.

We believe that our success will depend upon our ability to remain competitive in our field.  Competition can be based on price, brand recognition, player appeal and the strength of underlying intellectual property.  Larger competitors may have longer operating histories, greater brand recognition, more firmly established supply relationships, superior capital resources, distribution and product inventory than we do.  Smaller competitors may be more able to participate in developing and marketing table games, compared to other gaming products, because of the lower cost and complexity associated with the development of these products and a generally less stringent regulatory environment.  We compete with others in efforts to obtain or create innovative products, obtain financing, acquire other gaming companies, and license and distribute products.  We compete on these bases, as well as on the strength of our sales, service and distribution channels.

Our competitors include, but are not limited to, Scientific Games, American Gaming Systems, TCS/John Huxley and Masque Publishing.  Moreover, we expect additional competitors to emerge in the future.  There can be no assurances that we will be able to compete effectively in the future and failure to compete successfully in the market could have a material adverse effect on our business.

MANUFACTURING AND SUPPLIERS

We obtain most of the parts for our products from third party suppliers, including both off-the-shelf items as well as components manufactured to our specifications.  We also manufacture a small number of parts in-house that are used both for product assembly and for servicing existing products.  We generally perform warehousing, quality control, final assembly and shipping ourselves from our facilities in Las Vegas, Nevada, although small inventories are maintained and repairs are performed by our field service employees.  We believe that our sources of supply for components and raw materials are adequate and that alternative sources of materials are available.

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

We strive to develop and maintain a robust pipeline of new products and services to bring to market.  We employ a staff of electrical, mechanical and software engineers, graphic artists and game developers at our corporate offices to support, improve and upgrade our products and to develop and explore other potential table game products, technologies, methodologies and services.  We also use contracted third party developers and engineers.

We have incurred approximately $354,000 and $455,000 in research and development expenditures during 2016 and 2015, respectively. Consistent with our increased focus on development of new product and services, we anticipate significant increases in research and development expenditures in 2017 and future years.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

Our products and the intellectual property associated with them are typically protected by patents, trademarks, copyrights and other licensing agreements.  There can be no assurance that the steps we have taken to protect our intellectual property will be sufficient.  In addition, the laws of some foreign countries do not protect intellectual property to the same extent as the laws of the United States, which could increase the likelihood of infringement.  Furthermore, other companies could develop similar or superior products without violating our intellectual property rights.  If we resort to legal proceedings to enforce our intellectual property rights, the proceedings could be burdensome, disruptive and expensive, and distract the attention of management, and there can be no assurance that we would prevail.

We have been subject to litigation claiming that we have infringed the rights of others and/or that certain of our patents and other intellectual property are invalid or unenforceable.  We have also brought actions against others to protect our rights.  See “Item 3. Legal Proceedings” and Note 11 of our audited financial statements included elsewhere in this report.

GOVERNMENT REGULATION

We are subject to regulation by governmental authorities in most jurisdictions in which we offer our products.  The manufacturing and distribution of casino games, gaming equipment, systems technology and related services, as well as the operation of casinos, are all

6


subject to regulation by a variety of federal, state, international, tribal, and local agencies with the majority of oversight provided by individual state gaming control boards. While the regulatory requirements vary by jurisdiction, most require:

 

Findings of suitability for the company, individual officers, directors, key employees and major shareholders;

 

Documentation of qualification, including evidence of financial stability;

 

Specific product approvals for gaming equipment manufacturers; and

 

Licenses, registrations and/or permits.

Gaming regulatory requirements vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, and obtaining licenses, registrations, findings of suitability for our officers, directors, and principal stockholders and other required approvals with respect to us, our personnel and our products are time consuming and expensive.  Generally, gaming regulatory authorities have broad discretionary powers and may deny applications for or revoke approvals on any basis they deem reasonable.  We have approvals that enable us to conduct our business in numerous jurisdictions, subject in each case to the conditions of the particular approvals.  These conditions may include limitations as to the type of game or product we may sell or lease, as well as limitations on the type of facility, such as riverboats, and the territory within which we may operate, such as tribal nations.  We have authorizations with certain Native American tribes throughout the United States that have compacts with the states in which their tribal dominions are located or operate or propose to operate casinos.  These tribes generally require suppliers of gaming and gaming-related equipment to obtain authorizations.

The nature of the industry and our worldwide operations make this process very time consuming and require extensive resources.  We engage legal resources familiar with local customs in certain jurisdictions to assist in keeping us compliant with applicable regulations worldwide.  Through this process, we seek to assure both regulators and investors that all our operations maintain the highest levels of integrity and avoid any appearance of impropriety.

Gaming laws and regulations serve to protect the public interest and ensure gambling related activity is conducted honestly, competitively, and free of corruption.  Regulatory oversight additionally ensures that the local authorities receive the appropriate amount of gaming tax revenues.  As such, our financial systems and reporting functions must demonstrate high levels of detail and integrity.

We have obtained or applied for all required government licenses, permits, registrations, findings of suitability and approvals necessary to manufacture and distribute gaming products in all jurisdictions where we directly operate.  Although many regulations at each level are similar or overlapping, we must satisfy all conditions individually for each jurisdiction.

In addition to what may be required of our officers, board members, key employees and substantial interest holders, any of our stakeholders, including but not limited to investors, may be subject to regulatory requests and suitability findings.  Failure to comply with regulatory requirements or obtaining a finding of unsuitability by a regulatory body could result in a substantial or total loss of investment.

Gaming jurisdictions.  Legalized gaming jurisdictions typically require various licenses, registrations, findings of suitability, permits, and approvals of manufacturers and distributors of gaming devices and equipment as well as licensure provisions related to changes in control.  In general, such requirements involve restrictions and approvals.  Additionally, we license and/or lease our products through licensed distributors.

Native American gaming regulation. Gaming on Native American lands within the United States is governed by the Federal Indian Gaming Regulatory Act of 1988 (“IGRA”) and specific tribal ordinances and regulations. Class III gaming (table games and slot machines, for example), as defined under IGRA, also requires a Tribal-State Compact, which is a written agreement between a specific tribe and the respective state. This compact authorizes the type of Class III gaming activity and the standards, procedures and controls under which the Class III gaming activity must be conducted. The National Indian Gaming Commission (“NIGC”) has oversight authority over gaming on Native American lands and generally monitors tribal gaming, including the establishment and enforcement of required minimum internal control standards. Each tribe is sovereign and must have a tribal gaming commission or office established to regulate tribal gaming activity to ensure compliance with IGRA, NIGC, and its Tribal-State Compact. We have complied with each of the numerous vendors licensing and specific product approval and shipping notification requirements imposed by Tribal-State Compacts and enforced by tribal and/or state gaming agencies under IGRA in the Native American lands in which we do business.

Application of future or additional regulatory requirements. In the future, we intend to seek the necessary registrations, licenses, approvals, and findings of suitability for us, our products, and our personnel in other jurisdictions throughout the world.  However, we may be unable to obtain such necessary items, or if such items are obtained, may be revoked, suspended, or conditioned.  In addition, we may be unable to obtain on a timely basis, or to obtain at all, the necessary approvals of our future products as they are developed, even in those jurisdictions in which we already have existing products licensed or approved.  If the necessary regulations are not sought after or the required approvals not received, we may be prohibited from selling our products in that jurisdiction or may be required to sell our products through other licensed entities at a reduced profit.

The Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) has adopted rules that regulate broker-dealer practices in connection with transactions in penny stocks. Penny stocks are generally equity securities with a market price of less than $5.00, other than securities registered on certain national securities exchanges or quoted on the NASDAQ system, provided that current price and volume information with respect to transactions in such securities is provided by the exchange or system. The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a transaction in a penny stock, to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document prepared by the SEC, that: (a) contains a description of the nature and level of risk in the market for penny stocks in both public offerings and secondary trading; (b) contains a description of the broker’s or dealer’s duties to the customer and of the rights and remedies available to the customer with respect to a violation of such duties or other requirements of the securities laws; (c) contains a brief, clear, narrative description of a dealer market, including bid and ask prices for penny stocks and the significance of the spread between the bid and ask price; (d) contains a toll-free telephone number for inquiries on disciplinary actions; (e) defines significant terms in the disclosure document or in the conduct of trading in penny stocks; and (f) contains such other information and is in such form, including language, type size and format, as the SEC shall require by rule or regulation.

The broker-dealer also must provide, prior to effecting any transaction in a penny stock, the customer with (a) bid and offer quotations for the penny stock; (b) the compensation of the broker-dealer and its salesperson in the transaction; (c) the number of shares to which such bid and ask prices apply, or other comparable information relating to the depth and liquidity of the market for such stock; and (d) a monthly account statement showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer’s account.

In addition, the penny stock rules require that prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from those rules, the broker-dealer must make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser’s written acknowledgment of the receipt of a risk disclosure statement, a written agreement as to transactions involving penny stocks, and a signed and dated copy of a written suitability statement.

These disclosure requirements may have the effect of reducing the trading activity for our common stock. Therefore, stockholders may have difficulty buying or selling our securities.

HOLDERS OF OUR COMMON STOCK

As of April 14, 2017, we had 39,365,591 shares of our common stock issued and outstanding, held by approximately 400 shareholders.

DIVIDEND POLICY

There are no restrictions in our articles of incorporation or bylaws that prevent us from declaring dividends. The Nevada Revised Statutes, however, do prohibit us from declaring dividends where after giving effect to the distribution of the dividend:

 

We would not be able to pay our debts as they become due in the usual course of business; or

 

Our total assets would be less than the sum of our total liabilities plus the amount that would be needed to satisfy the rights of shareholders who have preferential rights superior to those receiving the distribution.

We have not declared any dividends and we do not plan to declare any dividends in the foreseeable future.

TRANSFER AGENT

Our stock transfer agent and registrar is Colonial Stock Transfer Company, Inc. located at 66 Exchange Place, 1st Floor, Salt Lake City, UT 84111. Their telephone number is (801) 355-5740.

In addition, during the three months ended December 31, 2016, we issued 37,500 options to independent contractors, which were valued at $15,058 using the Black-Scholes model. In each of the transactions listed above, the securities were issued pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, (the “Securities Act”) and rules and regulations promulgated thereunder.  None of the transactions involved a public offering.

ITEM 7. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

The following is a discussion and analysis of our financial condition, results of operations and liquidity and capital resources as of December 31, 2016 and 2015 and for the years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015. This discussion should be read together with our audited consolidated financial statements and related notes included in Item 8. Financial Statements and Supplementary Data. Some of the information contained in this discussion includes forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties; therefore our “Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements” should be reviewed for a discussion of important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the results described in, or implied by, such forward-looking statements.

OVERVIEW

We develop, acquire, manufacture and market technology and entertainment-based products and services for the gaming industry for placement on the casino floor. Our products and services primarily relate to licensed casino operators’ table games activities and focus on either increasing their profitability, productivity and security or expanding their gaming entertainment offerings in the form of proprietary table games, electronically enhanced table game platforms, fully-automated electronic tables and other ancillary equipment.  Our products and services are offered in highly regulated markets throughout the world. Our products and services are manufactured at our headquarters and manufacturing facility in Las Vegas, Nevada, as well as outsourced for certain sub-assemblies in the United States.

As discussed in Note 1 to our audited financial statements included in Item 8, the 2015 financial statements have been restated to correct certain errors noted during the preparation of the 2016 financial statements.  The restatements to reflect the correction of these errors are referred to herein collectively as the "Restatement." For further information regarding the Restatement, see our Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on April 3, 2017.

Results of operations for the years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015. For the year ended December 31, 2016 our gross revenues increased $1,499,042 or 14%, to $12,450,712, as compared to $10,951,670 in 2015. The increase was due primarily to our focus on Premium Games such as High Card Flush, which command a higher price point per unit, and the improved performance of side bet games such as 21+3 and Bonus Craps.  Our gross revenues include $12,436,748 of revenues derived from recurring product leases and royalties in 2016, which accounted for 99.9% of our total revenue, compared to $10,915,410 or 99.7% in 2015. We consider our revenues from product leases and royalties to be our recurring revenues, and expect such revenues to provide the majority of our income going forward.

Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased $388,896, or 5%, to $6,730,215 in 2016 compared to $7,119,111 in 2015. The decrease was primarily due to a significant reduction in legal fees, which was partially offset by increases in employee compensation.

$                  376,270

 

$               1,471,365

 

Employee compensation expenses increased as a result of our investments in personnel as we grow as well as higher sales commissions due to higher revenues throughout 2016. Legal and professional fees have decreased due to the completion of legal proceedings.

Research and development expenses decreased $101,124, or 22%, to $353,816 in 2016 compared to $454,940 in 2015.  This decrease is primarily due to reduced costs surrounding the development of SpectrumVision.

 

Income from operations increased $1,900,489, or 128%, to $3,388,639 in 2016 compared to $1,488,150 in 2015. This increase was primarily attributable to higher revenues and lower selling, general and administrative expenses.

Settlement income was $697,214 in 2016 compared to zero in 2015. On July 11, 2016, we entered into a settlement agreement (the "Settlement Agreement") with Red Card Gaming, Inc. and AGS, LLC (“AGS”) to settle all claims and counter-claims related to contract dispute litigation. As a result of the Settlement Agreement, we recognized settlement income of $697,214, which includes a $350,000 payment from AGS and a release of $347,214 in accrued contingent consideration owed to AGS.

Total interest expense increased $161,727, or 15% to $1,209,160 for 2016 compared to $1,047,433 in 2015. The increase in interest expense is primarily due to the 2016 Term Loan Facility completed in August 2016, partially offset by reduced interest expense as a result of the payoff of the notes payable to Prime Table Games LLC and Prime Table Games UK (the “PTG Notes”) concurrently.

The change in estimated fair value of warrants issued in connection with the 2016 Term Loan Facility was $126,897 for 2016 compared to zero in 2015. The estimated fair value is determined using the Black-Scholes pricing model.

Income tax provision increased $575,808 or 295% to $770,723 in 2016 compared to $194,915 in 2015.  This is attributable to the increases in total revenue.  

Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA includes adjustment to net income to exclude interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, share based compensation, loss on extinguishment of debt, change in estimated fair value of warrant liability, and settlement income. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of performance defined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("U.S. GAAP"). However, Adjusted EBITDA is used by management to evaluate our operating performance. Management believes that disclosure of the Adjusted EBITDA metric offers investors, regulators and other stakeholders a view of our operations in the same manner management evaluates our performance. When combined with U.S. GAAP results, management believes Adjusted EBITDA provides a comprehensive understanding of our financial results. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income or to net cash provided by 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 our performance. A reconciliation of U.S. GAAP net income from operations to Adjusted EBITDA is as follows:

Liquidity and capital resources. As of December 31, 2016, we had total current assets of $5,148,434 and total assets of $19,011,945. This compares to $3,060,695 and $18,281,808, respectively as of December 31, 2015. The increase in current assets as of December 31, 2016 was primarily attributable to an increase in cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, net and prepaid expense and other assets. Cash increased significantly due to the effects of the August 2016 refinancing transaction. Our total current liabilities as of December 31, 2016 were $4,708,685, compared to $8,000,109 as of December 31, 2015. This decrease was primarily driven by the decrease in current portions of long-term debt, as a result of the August 2016 refinancing transaction. Our business model continues to be highly profitable and we have several options to ensure we are able to meet our short-term and long-term obligations.

We have undertaken certain growth initiatives to expand our recurring revenue base. As such we have made investments in personnel, inventory and research related to the development of our enhanced table systems. Additionally, we increased our sales and marketing budget and spent monies on regulatory efforts for the purpose of expanding our distribution network. We are also subject to several regulatory investigations and proceedings which may result in significant future legal and regulatory expenses. A significant increase in such expenses may require us to postpone growth initiatives or investments in personnel, inventory and research and development of our products. It is our intention to continue such initiatives and investments. However, to the extent we are not able to achieve our growth objectives or raise additional capital, we will need to evaluate the reduction of operating expenses.

11


At December 31, 2016, we do not have any available third-party lines or letters of credit or any written or oral commitments from officers or shareholders to provide us with loans or advances to support our operations or fund potential acquisitions.

Our operating activities provided $4,167,531 in cash for the year ended December 31, 2016, compared to $3,555,874 for the year ended December 31, 2015. The increase in operating cash flow was primarily due to the increases in net income, income taxes payable and deferred revenue, partially offset by decreases in accounts payable.

Additionally, investing activities used cash of $82,702 for the year ended December 31, 2016, compared to $45,638 for the year ended December 31, 2015.  In both years, these amounts are due to the acquisition of property and equipment.

Cash used in financing activities during the year ended December 31, 2016, was $2,318,805 compared to $3,488,519 for the year ended December 31, 2015.  These amounts were comprised of principal payments towards long-term debt and capital leases, partially offset by the proceeds received from long-term borrowings.

We intend to fund our continuing operations through increased sales and cash flow. Additionally the issuance of debt or equity financing arrangements may be required to fund expenditures or other cash requirements. Despite this funding, there can be no assurance that we will be successful in raising additional funding, if necessary. If we are not able to secure additional funding, the implementation of our business plan could be impaired. There can be no assurance that such additional financing will be available to us on acceptable terms or at all. In addition, we may incur higher capital expenditures in the future to expand our operations. We may from time to time acquire products and businesses complementary to our business. We may also incur significant expenses when applying for new licenses or in complying with current jurisdictional requirements. As a public entity, we may issue shares of our common stock and preferred stock in private or public offerings to obtain financing, capital or to acquire other businesses that can improve our performance and growth. To the extent that we seek to acquire other businesses in exchange for our common stock, fluctuations in our stock price could have a material adverse effect on our ability to complete acquisitions.

 

Critical Accounting Policies. The discussion of our financial condition and results of operations is based upon our financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Critical accounting policies are those policies that, in management's view, are most important in the portrayal of our financial condition and results of operations. See Note 2 of our financial statements included in Item 8 for further detail on these critical accounting policies.

Off balance sheet arrangements. As of December 31, 2016, there were no off balance sheet arrangements.

Significant equipment. While we anticipate additional purchases of furniture and equipment in conjunction with our personnel expansion, we do not anticipate such purchases to be material.

Board of Directors

Galaxy Gaming, Inc.

Las Vegas, Nevada

 

We have audited the accompanying balance sheet of Galaxy Gaming, Inc. (the “Company”) as of December 31, 2016, and the related statements of income, stockholders’ equity and cash flows for the year then ended.  These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management.  Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.

We conducted our audit in accordance with standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States).  Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement.  The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting.  Our audit included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.  Accordingly, we express no such opinion.  An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation.  We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2016, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the year then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.

 

We also have audited the adjustments described in Note 1 that were applied to restate the 2015 financial statements to correct errors noted during the preparation of the 2016 financial statements.  In our opinion, such adjustments are appropriate and have been properly applied.  We were not engaged to audit, review, or apply any procedures to the 2015 financial statements of the Company other than with respect to the adjustments and, accordingly, we do not express an opinion or any other form of assurance on the 2015 financial statements taken as a whole.

GALAXY GAMING, INC.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2016 AND 2015

 

 

NOTE 1. NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND RESTATEMENT

Nature of operations. Unless the context indicates otherwise, references to “Galaxy Gaming, Inc.,” “we,” “us,” “our,” or the “Company,” refer to Galaxy Gaming, Inc., a publicly reporting Nevada corporation (“Galaxy Gaming”). “GGLLC” refers to Galaxy Gaming, LLC, a Nevada limited liability company that was a predecessor of our business but is not directly associated with Galaxy Gaming, Inc.

We are an established global gaming company specializing in the design, development, manufacturing, marketing and acquisition of proprietary casino table games and associated technology, platforms and systems for the casino gaming industry. We are a leading supplier of gaming entertainment products worldwide and provide a diverse offering of quality products and services at competitive prices designed to enhance the player experience.

 

Restatement. The financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2015 have been restated to correct the following errors noted during the preparation of the 2016 financial statements: (i) the amortization of original issue discount (“OID”) related to notes payable to Prime Table Games LLC and Prime Table Games UK (the “PTG Notes”) was not previously deducted from taxable income in our federal tax returns from 2011 through 2015, which resulted in an understatement of deferred tax assets and an overstatement of the income tax provision in those periods; and (ii) foreign currency exchange gains and losses related to the PTG Notes were incorrectly reported as other comprehensive income instead of earnings (i.e., non-operating income). The restatements to reflect the correction of both errors are referred to herein collectively as the "Restatement."

 

The table below sets forth the amounts as originally reported for balance sheet categories affected by the Restatement, the effect of the Restatement and restated balances as of December 31, 2015:

NOTE 2. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

This summary of our significant accounting policies is presented to assist in understanding our financial statements. The financial statements and notes are representations of our management team, who are responsible for their integrity and objectivity. These accounting policies conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) and have been consistently applied to the preparation of the financial statements.

Basis of presentation. The accompanying financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP and the rules of the SEC. In the opinion of management, all adjustments necessary in order for the financial statements to be not misleading have been reflected herein.

Basis of accounting. The financial statements have been prepared on the accrual basis of accounting in conformity with U.S. GAAP. Revenues are recognized as income when earned and expenses are recognized when they are incurred. We do not have significant categories of cost of revenues. Expenses such as wages, consulting expenses, legal, regulatory and professional fees and rent are recorded when the expense is incurred.

Cash and cash equivalents. We consider cash on hand, cash in banks, certificates of deposit, and other short-term securities with maturities of three months or less when purchased, as cash and cash equivalents. Our bank accounts are deposited in insured institutions. The funds are insured up to $250,000 per account. To date, we have not experienced uninsured losses and we believe the risk of future loss is negligible.

Restricted cash. We are required by gaming regulation to maintain sufficient reserves in restricted accounts to be used for the purpose of funding payments to winners of our jackpots offered. Compliance with restricted cash requirements for jackpot funding is reported to gaming authorities in various jurisdictions.

Inventory. Inventory consists of ancillary products such as signs, layouts, and bases for the various games and electronic devices and components to support our Enhanced Table Systems.  Inventory value is determined by the average cost method and management maintains inventory levels based on historical and industry trends. We regularly assess inventory quantities for excess and obsolescence primarily based on forecasted product demand. See Note 4.

Products leased and held for lease, net. We develop products intended primarily to be leased by casinos, which are stated at cost, net of depreciation. Depreciation on leased products is calculated using the straight-line method over a three-year period. See Note 6.

Property and equipment, net. Property and equipment are being depreciated over their estimated useful lives, 3 to 5 years, using the straight-line method of depreciation for book purposes. See Note 5.

Goodwill. A goodwill balance of $1,091,000 was created as a result of the Prime Table Games asset acquisition completed in 2011. This asset is assessed for impairment at least annually or at other times during the year if events or circumstances indicate that it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is below the carrying amount. If found to be impaired, the carrying amount will be reduced and an impairment loss will be recognized.

Other intangible assets, net. These intangible assets have finite lives and are being amortized using the straight-line method over their estimated economic lives:

 

Client installation base

 

60 months

Patents

 

87 - 132 months

Trademarks

 

144 - 360 months

Client relationships

 

264 months

 

21


The intangible assets are analyzed for potential impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying value may not be recoverable.  See Note 7.

Impairment of other long-lived assets. We continually monitor events and changes in circumstances that could indicate carrying amounts of long-lived assets may not be recoverable. When such events or changes in circumstances are present, we assess the recoverability of long-lived assets by determining whether the carrying value of such assets will be recovered through undiscounted expected future cash flows. If the total of the future cash flows is less than the carrying amount of those assets, we recognize an impairment loss based on the excess of the carrying amount over the fair value of the assets. Assets to be disposed of are reported at the lower of the carrying amount or the fair value less costs to sell.

Fair value of financial instruments. We estimate fair value for financial assets and liabilities in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 820, Fair Value Measurement (ASC 820). ASC 820 defines fair value, provides guidance for measuring fair value, requires certain disclosures and discusses valuation techniques, such as the market approach (comparable market prices), the income approach (present value of future income or cash flow) and the cost approach (cost to replace the service capacity of an asset or replacement cost). ASC 820 utilizes a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value into three broad levels:

 

Level 1: Observable inputs such as quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

 

 

Level 2: Inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly. These include

quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets and quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in

markets that are not active.

 

 

 

Level 3: Unobservable inputs that reflect the reporting entity’s own assumptions.

 

The estimated fair value of cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable, accrued expenses, income taxes payable and jackpot liabilities approximates the carrying amount of these financial instruments due to their short-term nature. The estimated fair value of our long-term debt and capital lease obligations approximates their carrying value based upon our expected borrowing rate for debt with similar remaining maturities and comparable risk. As of December 31, 2016, the six-year common stock warrants issued to the lenders of the August 2016 $10,500,000,Term Loan (the “Term Loan”) to purchase 1,965,780 shares of our common stock (the “Warrants”) were the only financial instrument measured at estimated fair value on a recurring basis. See Note 14.

Leases.  We recognize rent expense for operating leases on a straight-line basis (including the effect of reduced or free rent and rent escalations) over the applicable lease term.  The difference between the cash paid to the landlord and the amount recognized as rent expense on a straight-line basis is included in deferred rent.  The landlord of our corporate headquarters financed leasehold improvements in the amount of $150,000.  See Note 9.  These improvements have been recorded as a capital lease and amortized over the life of the lease. 

Revenue recognition. Revenue is primarily derived from the licensing of our products and intellectual property. Consistent with our strategy, revenue is generated from negotiated month-to-month recurring licensing fees or the performance of our products, or both. We also, occasionally, receive a one-time sale of certain products and/or reimbursement of our manufactured equipment.

Substantially all revenue is recognized when it is earned. Depending upon the product and negotiated terms, our clients may be invoiced monthly in advance, monthly in arrears or quarterly in arrears for the licensing of our products. If billed in advance, the advance billings are recorded as deferred revenue until earned. If billed in arrears, we recognize the corresponding preceding period’s revenue upon invoicing at the subsequent date. Generally, we begin earning revenue with the installation or “go live” date of the associated product in our clients’ establishment. The monthly recurring invoices are based on executed agreements with each client.

Additionally, clients may be invoiced for product sales at the time of shipment or delivery of the product. Revenue from the sale of our associated products is recognized when the following criteria are met:

(1)    Persuasive evidence of an arrangement between us and our client exists;

(2)    Shipment has occurred;

(3)    The price is fixed and or determinable; and

(4)    Collectability is reasonably assured or probable.

Costs of ancillary products and assembled components. Ancillary products include paytables (display of payouts), bases, layouts, signage and other items as they relate to support specific proprietary games in connection with the licensing of our games. Assembled components represent the cost of the equipment, devices and incorporated software used to support the Bonus Jackpot System.

22


Research and development. We incur research and development (“R&D”) costs to develop our new and next-generation products. Our products reach commercial feasibility shortly before the products are released and therefore R&D costs are expensed as incurred. Employee related costs associated with product development are included in R&D costs.

Foreign currency transactions.  We record foreign currency transactions at the exchange rate prevailing at the date of the transaction. Subsequent exchange gains and losses from foreign currency remeasurements are included in other income (expense) of our statements of income.

Income taxes. We are subject to income taxes in both the United States and in certain non-U.S. jurisdictions.  We account for income taxes in accordance with ASC Topic 740, Income Taxes. We use the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes. Under the asset and liability method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to temporary differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases, and operating loss and tax credit carry-forwards. These temporary differences will result in deductible or taxable amounts in future years when the reported amounts of the assets or liabilities are recovered or settled. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. A valuation allowance is provided when it is more likely than not that some or all of the deferred tax assets may not be realized. Adjustments to the valuation allowance increase or decrease our income tax provision or benefit. To the extent we believe that recovery is not more likely than not, we establish a valuation allowance against these deferred tax assets.  Significant judgment is required in determining our provision for income taxes, our deferred tax assets and liabilities, and any valuation allowance recorded against our deferred tax assets. As of December 31, 2016 and 2015, we did not record a valuation allowance.

We recognize the tax benefit from an uncertain tax position if it is more likely than not that the tax position will be sustained on examination by the taxing authorities, based on the technical merits of the position.  See Note 13.

Judgment is required in determining the provision for incomes taxes and related accruals, deferred tax assets and liabilities. In the ordinary course of business, there are transactions and calculations where the ultimate tax outcome is uncertain. Additionally, our tax returns are subject to audit by various tax authorities. Although we believe that our estimates are reasonable, actual results could differ from these estimates.

Net income per share. Basic earnings per share is calculated by dividing net income by the weighted-average number of common shares issued and outstanding during the year. Diluted earnings per share is similar to basic, except that the weighted-average number of shares outstanding is increased by the potentially dilutive effect of outstanding stock options and warrants, if applicable, during the year, using the treasury stock method.

Share-based compensation. We recognize compensation expense for all restricted stock and stock option awards made to employees, directors and independent contractors. The fair value of restricted stock is measured using the grant date trading price of our stock.  The fair value of stock option awards (Note 14) is estimated at the grant date using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model and the portion that is ultimately expected to vest is recognized as compensation cost over the requisite service period. We have elected to recognize compensation expense for all options with graded vesting on a straight-line basis over the vesting period of the entire option. The determination of fair value using the Black-Scholes pricing model is affected by our stock price as well as assumptions regarding a number of complex and subjective variables, including expected stock price volatility, risk-free interest rate, expected dividends and projected employee stock option exercise behaviors. We estimate volatility based on historical volatility of our common stock, and estimate the expected term based on several criteria, including the vesting period of the grant and the term of the award. We estimate employee stock option exercise behavior based on actual historical exercise activity and assumptions regarding future exercise activity of unexercised, outstanding options.

Share based compensation is recognized only for those awards that are ultimately expected to vest, and we have applied or estimated forfeiture rate to unvested awards for purposes of calculating compensation costs. These estimates will be revised in future periods if actual forfeitures differ from the estimates. Changes in forfeiture estimates impact compensation cost in the period in which the change in estimate occurs.

Common stock warrants. We account for common stock warrants (Note 14) pursuant to the applicable guidance on accounting for derivative financial instruments indexed to, and potentially settled in, a company’s own stock, on the understanding that in compliance with applicable securities laws, registered warrants require the issuance of unregistered securities upon exercise.  We classify the warrants on the balance sheet as a long-term liability, which is revalued at each balance sheet date subsequent to the initial issuance. Determining the appropriate fair-value model and calculating the fair value of warrants requires considerable judgment, including estimating stock price volatility and expected warrant life. We develop our estimates based on historical data. A small change in the estimates used may have a relatively large change in the estimated valuation. We use the Black-Scholes pricing model to value the

23


registered warrants. Changes in the fair market value of the Warrants are reflected in the statement of operations as “Change in estimated fair value of warrant liability.” No warrants have been exercised as of December 31, 2016.

Use of estimates and assumptions. We are required to make estimates, judgments and assumptions that we believe are reasonable based on our historical experience, contract terms, observance of known trends in our company and the industry as a whole, and information available from other outside sources. Our estimates affect reported amounts for assets, liabilities, revenues, expenses and related disclosures. Actual results may differ from initial estimates.

Recently adopted accounting standards

Debt Issuance Costs.  In April 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-03, Interest – Imputation of Interest (Subtopic 835-30): Simplifying the presentation of Debt Issuance Costs.  ASU 2015-03 intends to simplify the presentation of debt issuance costs by requiring that debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be presented in the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of that debt liability, consistent with debt discounts.  The recognition and measurement guidance for debt issuance costs are not affected by the amendments in this ASU. In August 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-15, which amended Subtopic 835-30 for the presentation and subsequent measurement of issuance costs ratably over the term of the line-of-credit arrangement, regardless of whether there are any outstanding borrowings on the arrangement.  The guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2015, and interim periods within those fiscal years and is required to be applied retrospectively to all periods presented.  The adoption of this guidance in 2016 did not have a material effect on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

Business Combinations.  In September 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-16, Business Combinations (Topic 805): Simplifying the Accounting for Measurement-Period Adjustments.  ASU 2015-16 eliminates the requirement to retrospectively apply adjustments made to provisional amounts recognized in a business combination.  It requires that an acquirer recognize adjustments to provisional amounts that are identified during the measurement period in the reporting period in which the adjustment amounts are determined. The amendments in this ASU require that the acquirer record, in the same period’s financial statements, the effect on earnings of changes in depreciation, amortization or other income effects, if any, as a result of the change to the provisional amounts, calculated as if the accounting had been completed at the acquisition date.  The amendments in this ASU require an entity to present separately on the face of the income statement or disclose in the notes the portion of the amount recorded in current-period earnings by line item that would have been recorded in previous reporting periods if the adjustment to the provisional amounts had been recognized as of the acquisition date.  ASU 2015-16 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2015, including interim periods within those fiscal years.  The adoption of this guidance in 2016 did not have a material effect on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

Deferred Taxes.  In November 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-17, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes, which eliminates the requirement to present deferred tax liabilities and assets as current and non-current in a classified balance sheet.  Instead, all deferred tax assets and liabilities will be required to be presented as non-current.  The ASU is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, and interim periods within those fiscal years.  The amendments in this guidance may be applied prospectively to all deferred tax liabilities and assets or retrospectively to all periods presented with earlier application permitted for financial statements that have not been issued.  We early adopted this ASU as of December 31, 2016. The adoption of this ASU did not have a material impact on our financial statements.

New accounting standards not yet adopted

Revenue Recognition.  In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09 (Topic 606), Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which is a comprehensive new revenue recognition standard that will supersede virtually all existing revenue guidance, including industry-specific guidance.  Under the new standard, revenue will be recognized when control of the promised goods or services is transferred to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which we expect to be entitled in exchange for those goods and services.  The standard creates a five-step model that will generally require companies to use more judgment and make more estimates than under current guidance when considering the terms of contracts along with all relevant facts and circumstances.  These include the identification of customer contracts and separating performance obligations, the determination of transaction price that potentially includes an estimate of variable consideration, allocating the transaction price to each separate performance obligation, and recognizing revenue in line with the pattern of transfer.

In August 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-14, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Deferral of the Effective Date, which defers the effective date of ASU 2014-09 by one year to now be effective for fiscal years, and interim reporting periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2017.  Early adoption of the standard is permitted but not before the original effective date of December 15, 2016.  The ASU may be adopted using a full retrospective approach or reporting the cumulative effect as of the date of adoption.  We are currently evaluating the impact of adopting this guidance; however, we expect to adopt using the modified retrospective approach.

24


Inventory.  In July 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-11, Inventory: Simplifying the Measurement of Inventory.  ASU 2015-11 changes the criteria for measuring inventory within the scope of the ASU.  Inventory will now be measured at the lower of cost and net realizable value, while the concept of market value will be eliminated.  The ASU defines net realizable value as the estimated selling process in the ordinary course of business, less reasonably predictable costs of completion, disposal and transportation.  ASU 2015-11 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, and interim periods within those fiscal years, with earlier adoption permitted.  The prospective adoption of the ASU is required.  We are currently evaluating the impact of adopting this guidance.

Leases.  In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842).  The amended guidance is intended to increase transparency and comparability among organizations by recognizing lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet and disclosing key information about leasing arrangements.  The adoption of this guidance is expected to result in a significant portion of our operating leases being recognized on our balance sheets.  The guidance requires lessees and lessors to recognize and measure leases at the beginning of the earliest period presented using a modified retrospective approach.  ASU 2016-02 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018 and interim periods within those fiscal years with earlier adoption permitted.  We are currently evaluating the impact of adopting this guidance.

Stock-based compensation. In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-09, Compensation - Stock Compensation: Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting. This ASU addresses several aspects of the accounting for share-based payment award transactions, including: (a) income tax consequences; (b) classification of awards as either equity or liabilities; and (c) classification on the statement of cash flows.

NOTE 3. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

On December 31, 2007, as a part of our acquisition of assets from GGLLC, we acquired a note receivable from Abyss Group, LLC (“Abyss”), an entity that was formerly related to the wife of our CEO (the “Related Party Note Receivable”).  Subsequently, Abyss assigned the note to Carpathia Associates, LLC (“Carpathia”), an entity controlled by our CEO.  The note receivable was a ten-year unsecured note with a 6% fixed interest rate, which required monthly principal and interest payments of $6,598 with the unpaid principal and interest due in February 2017.  The terms of the note were amended whereby the monthly principal and interest payment was reduced to $3,332 and the unpaid principal and interest was to be due August 2015.

As part of the acquisition of assets from GGLLC in 2007, we entered into a note payable to GGLLC.  Subsequently, GGLLC assigned the note payable to Carpathia (the “Carpathia Note Payable”). The Carpathia Note Payable originally required monthly principal and interest payments of $9,159 at a fixed interest rate of 7.3% through February 2017, at which time a balloon payment of $1,003,000 would be due.  

On August 10, 2015, our Board of Directors approved an agreement of offset (the “Offset Agreement”) between us and Carpathia.  The Offset Agreement amended the terms of the Related Party Notes Receivable and the Carpathia Note Payable and offset these two notes between the two parties.  The effective result is that the balloon payment of $437,313, due in August 2015 under the original terms of the Related Party Notes Receivable, will be applied to reduce the balance then owed on the Carpathia Note Payable.  The Board believes that we benefit from the arrangement as the Offset Agreement extends the Carpathia Note Payable’s balloon payment of $354,480 from February 2017 to December 2018.

The balance of the Related Party Note Receivable was $0 at December 31, 2016 and 2015.  Interest income associated with this note receivable was $0 and $13,443 for December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively.

The balance of the Carpathia Note Payable was $509,135 and $579,083 at December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively.  Interest expense associated with this note payable was $39,963 and $60,985 for December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively.

On October 26, 2015, we entered into a Promissory Note (the “Saucier Note”) with our CEO, pursuant to which our CEO loaned us $500,000 for working capital purposes.  In April 2016, pursuant to the terms of the Saucier Note, we paid $535,000 in full satisfaction of the balance due, relieving us of any further payments or obligations under this arrangement.
