SCIENTIFIC GAMES CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited, in thousands, except per share amounts)

(1)    Consolidated Financial Statements

Basis of Presentation

        The consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2004 and the consolidated statements of income for the three months ended March 31, 2003 and 2004, and the consolidated condensed statements of cash flows for the three months then ended, have been prepared by the Company without audit. In the opinion of management, all adjustments necessary to present fairly the consolidated financial position of the Company at March 31, 2004 and the results of its operations for the three months ended March 31, 2003 and 2004 and its cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2003 and 2004 have been made.

        Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been condensed or omitted. These consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company's 2003 Annual Report on Form 10-K. The results of operations for the period ended March 31, 2004 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results for the full year.

        Certain reclassifications have been made to the prior year's consolidated financial statements to conform to the current presentation.

Basic and Diluted Net Income Per Share

        The following represents a reconciliation of the numerator and denominator used in computing basic and diluted income available to common stockholders per share for the three months ended March 31, 2003 and 2004:

 
  Three Months Ended
March 31,

 
  2003
  2004
Income (numerator)          
Net income available to common stockholders (basic)   $ 9,474   18,439
Add back preferred stock dividend     1,847   1,982
   
 
Income before preferred dividend available to common stockholders (diluted)   $ 11,321   20,421
   
 
Shares (denominator)          
Basic weighted average common shares outstanding     59,450   61,942
Effect of dilutive securities-stock options, warrants, convertible preferred shares and deferred shares     28,482   29,883
   
 
Diluted weighted average common shares outstanding     87,932   91,825
   
 

Basic and diluted per share amounts

 

 

 

 

 
Basic net income per share available to common stockholders   $ 0.16   0.30
   
 
Diluted net income per share available to common stockholders   $ 0.13   0.22

        At March 31, 2003 and 2004, the Company had outstanding stock options, warrants, Performance Accelerated Restricted Stock Units and Series A Preferred Stock, which could potentially dilute basic earnings per share in the future. (See Notes 12 and 13 to the Consolidated Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2003 in the Company's 2003 Annual Report on Form 10-K.)

Stock-Based Compensation

        The Company has chosen to continue to account for stock-based compensation using the intrinsic-value method. Accordingly, no stock compensation expense has been recognized for a substantial majority of its stock-based compensation plans. Had the Company elected to recognize compensation cost based on the fair value of the stock options at the date of grant under SFAS 123, as amended by SFAS 148, such costs would have been recognized ratably over the vesting period of the underlying instruments and the Company's net income and net income per share would have changed to the pro forma amounts indicated in the table below:

 
  Three Months Ended
March 31,

 
 
  2003
  2004
 
Net income available to common stockholders as reported   $ 9,474   18,439  
Add: Stock-based compensation expense included in reported net income, net of related tax effects       47  
Deduct: Total stock-based employee compensation expense determined under fair value based method for all awards, net of related tax effects     (760 ) (1,128 )
   
 
 
Pro forma net income available to common stockholders   $ 8,714   17,358  
   
 
 
Net income available to common stockholders per basic share:            
  As reported   $ 0.16   0.30  
   
 
 
  Pro forma   $ 0.14   0.29  
   
 
 
Net income available to common stockholders per diluted share:            
  As reported   $ 0.13   0.22  
   
 
 
  Pro forma   $ 0.12   0.21

(2)    Acquisitions

        On November 6, 2003, the Company acquired IGT OnLine Entertainment Systems, Inc. ("OES") from International Game Technology (NYSE: IGT) for $143,000 in cash plus expenses and a $8,535 working capital adjustment payment. Upon consummation of the acquisition, the Company changed the name of IGT OnLine Entertainment Systems, Inc. to Scientific Games Online Entertainment Systems, Inc. The results of OES have been included in the Company's results of operations from the date of acquisition. In its most recent fiscal year, OES had annual revenues of approximately $148,818.

        The acquisition of OES strengthens the Company's presence in the lottery industry, expands the Company's geographic presence, broadens its lottery product offerings and accelerates its entrance into the video lottery systems business. As a result of the acquisition, the Company has contracts to operate online lottery systems in 16 states and throughout the Caribbean, in addition to supporting systems that OES delivered to customers in Korea, Norway, Switzerland and Shanghai. The acquisition also included OES's Advanced Gaming System (AGS) video system contracts in six jurisdictions throughout the world, certain intellectual property and an exclusive license to specific IGT slot brands for both instant and online games. The Company is in the process of allocating the purchase price of OES, including performing a thorough analysis to estimate the fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed, and it expects that a majority of the excess will be allocated to goodwill. Goodwill from the acquisition of OES will be deductible for tax purposes.

        In connection with the acquisition of OES, on November 6, 2003 the Company amended and restated its senior secured credit facility (as amended and restated, the "2003 Facility") to (a) permit the OES acquisition and related incurrence of indebtedness, (b) increase the revolving credit facility by $25,000 to $75,000, (c) enter into a $462,825 Term C Loan, of which $287,825 was used to repay in full the existing Term B Loan, $143,000 was used to pay the purchase price for the OES acquisition and the balance is available for general corporate purposes, and (d) make certain other changes to the credit agreement governing the 2002 Facility (such agreement, the "Credit Agreement"). The Term C Loan carries interest at the Base Rate plus a margin of 1.75% per annum, or at the rate of LIBOR plus a margin of 2.75% per annum, with the provision that when the Consolidated Leverage Ratio is less than 2.00:1.00 then the Base Rate margin and the LIBOR margin drop to 1.50% and 2.50%, respectively. The Term C Loan matures in December 2009 and requires quarterly principal payments of $1,157 through December 31, 2008 plus four quarterly principal payments of $109,921 in 2009.

        The following table presents unaudited pro forma results of operations as if the acquisition of OES had occurred at the beginning of the periods presented. These pro forma results have been prepared for comparative purposes and do not purport to be indicative of what would have occurred had the acquisition been made at the beginning of the Company's quarter ended March 31, 2003, or the results that may occur in the future.

Income before income tax expense   $ 17,665   29,812
   
 

(4)   Income Tax Expense

        The effective income tax rate for the first quarter of 2004 of 31.5% differed from the federal statutory rate of 35% due primarily to benefits from the realization of foreign tax credits and the implementation of the extra territorial income exclusion regime. The effective income tax rate for the first quarter of 2003 was approximately 36%, which differed from the federal statutory rate of 35% due primarily to foreign and state income taxes.

(10) Pension Plans

        The Company has two funded defined benefit pension plans. It has a defined benefit plan for its U.S. based union employees. Retirement benefits under this plan are based upon the number of years of credited service up to a maximum of 30 years for the majority of the employees. It also has a defined benefit plan for U.K. based employees. Retirement benefits under the U.K. plan are based on an employee's average compensation over the two years preceding retirement. The Company's policy is to fund the minimum contribution permissible by the respective regulatory authorities.

        In connection with its U.S. based collective bargaining agreements, the Company participates with other companies in a defined benefit pension plan covering union employees. The Company expects to make payments to the multi-employer plan of approximately $250 during the year ended December 31, 2004.

        The Company has a 401(k) plan covering all U.S. based employees who are not covered by a collective bargaining agreement. Company contributions to the plan are at the discretion of the Company's Board of Directors. The Company has a 401(k) plan for all union employees which does not provide for Company contributions.

        The Company also has an unfunded, nonqualified Supplemental Executive Retirement Plan (the "SERP"), which is intended to provide supplemental retirement benefits for certain senior executives of the Company. The SERP provides for retirement benefits according to a formula based on each participant's compensation and years of service with the Company.

        The following table sets forth the combined amount of net periodic benefit cost recognized for the three month periods ended March 31, 2003 and 2004:

(11) Subsequent Event

        At March 31, 2004, the Company agreed, in connection with GTech Corporation's planned acquisition of the Leeward Island Lottery Holding Company (LILHCO), to terminate its contract with the LILHCO at the end of 2004 for a payment of approximately $5,850 upon conclusion of the planned transaction. The Company expects that substantially all of this payment will be recorded as a reduction to the previously recorded goodwill resulting from the 2003 acquisition of OES. The Company received this payment on May 5, 2004 along with approximately $2,240 for contract services rendered and to be rendered through December 31, 2004, the expected end of the contract term.

(12) Financial Information for Guarantor Subsidiaries and Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries

        The Company conducts substantially all of its business through its domestic and foreign subsidiaries. The Notes and the 2003 Facility are fully, unconditionally and jointly and severally guaranteed by substantially all of the Company's wholly owned domestic subsidiaries (the "Guarantor Subsidiaries").

SCIENTIFIC GAMES CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION
AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS FOR
THE THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2004

Background

        The following discussion addresses our financial condition as of March 31, 2004 and the results of our operations for the three months ended March 31, 2004, compared to the same period in the prior year. This discussion should be read in conjunction with Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2003, included in our 2003 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

        We operate in four business segments: Lottery Group, Pari-mutuel Group, Venue Management Group and Telecommunications Products Group. Our Lottery Group provides instant tickets and related services and lottery systems. Instant ticket and related services includes ticket design and manufacturing as well as value-added services, including game design, sales and marketing support, inventory management and warehousing and fulfillment services. In addition, this division includes promotional instant tickets and pull-tab tickets that we sell to both lottery and non-lottery customers. Our lottery systems business includes the supply of transaction processing software for the accounting and validation of both instant ticket and online lottery games, point-of-sale terminal hardware sales, central site computers and communication hardware sales, and ongoing support and maintenance services for these products. This business also includes software and hardware and support services for sports betting and operation of credit card processing systems.

        On November 6, 2003, we acquired IGT OnLine Entertainment Systems, Inc. ("OES") from International Game Technology. OES operates online lottery systems in seven states and the Caribbean, and supports systems sold to customers in Korea, Norway, Switzerland and Shanghai. The acquisition also included OES's Advanced Games System (AGS) video system contracts in six jurisdictions throughout the world, certain intellectual property and an exclusive license to specific IGT slot brands for both instant and online games. Upon consummation of the acquisition, we changed the name of OES to Scientific Games Online Entertainment Systems, Inc.

        Our Pari-mutuel Group is comprised of our North American and international on-track, off-track and inter-track pari-mutuel services, simulcasting and communications services, and video gaming, as well as sales of pari-mutuel systems and equipment.

        Our Venue Management Group is comprised of our Connecticut off-track betting operations, and The Netherlands on-track and off-track betting operations.

        Our Telecommunications Products Group is comprised of our prepaid cellular phone cards business.

        The first and fourth quarters of the calendar year traditionally comprise the weakest season for our pari-mutuel wagering business. As a result of inclement weather during the winter months, a number of racetracks do not operate and those that do operate often experience missed racing days. This adversely affects the amounts wagered and our corresponding service revenues. Wagering and lottery equipment sales and software license revenues usually reflect a limited number of large transactions, which do not recur on an annual basis. Consequently, revenues and operating results can vary substantially from period to period as a result of the timing of revenue recognition for major equipment sales and software licensing transactions. In addition, instant ticket and prepaid phone card sales may vary depending on the season and timing of contract awards, changes in customer budgets, inventory ticket levels, lottery retail sales and general economic conditions. Operating results may also vary significantly from period to period depending on the addition or disposition of business units in each period.

19



        Operating results may also vary significantly from period to period depending on the addition or disposition of business units in each period. The acquisition of OES in November 2003, which was accounted for as a purchase, affects the comparability of operations from period to period (see Note 2 to the Consolidated Financial Statements).

Results of Operations: See Note 3—Business Segments

Three Months Ended March 31, 2004 compared to Three Months Ended March 31, 2003

Revenue Analysis

        For the quarter ended March 31, 2004, revenues of $185.5 million improved $62.2 million or 51% overall as compared to the prior year quarter, reflecting a $36.4 million or 35% increase in service revenue and a $25.9 million or 144% increase in sales revenue.

        The increase in service revenue in the quarter ended March 31, 2004 is primarily attributable to a $36.3 million or 51% increase in service revenues in the Lottery Group as compared to the prior year quarter, of which $34.5 million is attributable to the addition of OES and the balance of the increase is attributable to improvements in lottery sales, reflecting governments' continuing reliance on lotteries to support government sponsored programs. Pari-mutuel Group and Venue Management Group service revenues were comparable to prior year levels as a result of severe winter weather conditions in the northeast, partially offset by favorable foreign exchange rates.

        The $25.9 million increase in sales revenue in the quarter ended March 31, 2004 is primarily attributable to higher levels of systems and equipment sales in the Lottery Group, coupled with a $3.7 million or 38% improvement in revenues in the Telecommunications Products Group as compared to the prior year, due primarily to the impact of favorable exchange rates, partially offset by lower prices.

Gross Profit Analysis

        Gross profit of $77.5 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2004 increased $25.6 million or 49% as compared to the same period in 2003, reflecting a $17.9 million or 39% improvement in service revenues margins, and a $7.6 million or 138% improvement in sales revenues margins. Margin improvements related to service revenues as compared to the prior year period were primarily attributable to the Lottery Group as a result of the addition of OES. Gross margins remained at 42% in 2003 and 2004. Increased lottery systems and equipment sales revenue contributed to the $7.8 million increase in gross margin on sales in the lottery group for the quarter as compared to 2003. The $0.8 million or 11% improvement in services gross margin in the Pari-mutuel Group reflects the benefits of continued cost reduction efforts. Venue Management Group gross margins decreased $0.4 million or 9% as a result of lower service revenues as described above. Telecommunications Products Group gross margins improved $0.4 million or 12% from the prior year, as more favorable exchange rates and increased volume were only partially offset by lower prices.

Expense Analysis

        Selling, general and administrative expenses of $25.9 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2004 were $7.6 million or 41% higher than in the same period in 2003. This increase is primarily due to the addition of OES.

        Depreciation and amortization expense, including amortization of service contract software, of $15.2 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2004 increased $4.1 million or 38% from the same period in 2003, primarily due to the acquisition of OES.

20



        Interest expense of $7.4 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2004 increased $1.2 million or 19% from 2003, primarily as a result of additional borrowings in connection with the acquisition of OES in November 2003.

Income Tax Expense

        Income tax expense of $9.4 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2004 increased $3.0 million from 2003 as a result of higher earnings. The financial statement income tax provision was 31.5% in 2004 and 36.0% in 2003. The lower effective rate in 2004 reflects the benefits from the realization of foreign tax credits and the implementation of the extra territorial income exclusion regime.

Critical Accounting Policies

        Our consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. Preparing consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue, and expenses. These estimates and assumptions are affected by the application of our accounting policies. Our significant accounting policies are described in Note 1 to our 2003 Annual Report on Form 10-K. Critical accounting policies are those that require application of management's most difficult, subjective, or complex judgments, often as a result of matters that are inherently uncertain and may change in subsequent periods. Critical accounting policies for us include revenue recognition on percentage of completion contracts related to lottery development projects and pari-mutuel systems software development projects, capitalization of software development costs, evaluation of the recoverability of assets, the assessment of litigation and contingencies, accounting for stock-based compensation, accounting for derivative instruments and hedging activities, and accounting for income and other taxes. Actual results could differ from estimates.

Liquidity, Capital Resources and Working Capital

        In November 2003, we amended and restated the 2002 Senior Secured Credit Facility (as amended and restated, the "2003 Facility"). The 2003 Facility consists of a $75.0 million revolving credit facility due 2006 and a $462.8 million Term C Loan due 2009. The 2003 Facility contains certain financial covenants that are identical to those contained in the 2002 Senior Secured Credit Facility, and which are described below. At March 31, 2004, approximately 88% of our debt, representing approximately $466.2 million of indebtedness, was in variable rate instruments. Consequently, we are exposed to fluctuations in interest rates. The effect of a 0.125% change in the interest rates associated with our unhedged variable rate debt will result in a change of approximately $0.6 million per year in our interest expense assuming no change in our outstanding borrowings.

        Our financing arrangements as of March 31, 2004 impose certain limitations on our and our subsidiaries' operations.

        The credit agreement governing the 2003 Facility (the "Amended Credit Agreement") contains certain covenants that, among other things, limit our ability, and the ability of certain of our subsidiaries, to incur additional indebtedness, pay dividends or make distributions or certain other restricted payments, purchase or redeem capital stock, make investments or extend credit, engage in certain transactions with affiliates, engage in sale leaseback transactions, consummate certain assets sales, effect a consolidation or merger, or sell, transfer, lease or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all assets, and create certain liens and other encumbrances on assets. Also, the Amended Credit Agreement governing the 2003 Facility contains the following financial covenants, which are computed quarterly on a rolling four-quarter basis as applicable:

21


        For purposes of the foregoing limitations, Consolidated EBITDA means the sum of (i) consolidated net income, (ii) consolidated interest expense with respect to all outstanding indebtedness, (iii) provisions for taxes based on income, (iv) total depreciation expense, (v) total amortization expense and (vi) certain adjustments, in each case for the period being measured, all of the foregoing as determined on a consolidated basis for us and our subsidiaries in accordance with GAAP. Although we were in compliance with our loan covenants at December 31, 2003 and expect to continue to remain in compliance over the next 12 months, we cannot assure you that we will be able to do so or that we will be able to continue to meet the covenant requirements beyond 12 months.

        At March 31, 2004, we had outstanding letters of credit of $38.4 million, but no outstanding borrowings under the 2003 Facility, leaving us with a total availability of $36.6 million as compared to $27.1 million at December 31, 2003. Our ability to borrow under the 2003 Facility will depend on our remaining in compliance with the limitations imposed by our lenders, including the maintenance of the specified financial covenants. Presently we have not sought and, therefore, do not have any other financing commitments.

        Our contractual obligations and commercial commitments principally include obligations associated with our outstanding indebtedness and future minimum operating lease obligations.

        Our Series A Preferred Stock requires dividend payments at a rate of 6% per annum. Prior to 2004, we satisfied the dividend requirement using additional shares of convertible preferred stock. The terms of the convertible preferred stock provide us with the flexibility to pay the dividend in cash, subject to compliance with the 2003 Facility. We paid the first quarter 2004 preferred stock dividend in cash.

22



        Our pari-mutuel wagering and online lottery systems service contracts require us to, among other things, maintain the central computing system and related hardware in efficient working order, provide added software functionality upon request, provide on-site computer operators, and furnish necessary supplies. Our primary expenditures associated with these services are personnel and related costs, which are expensed as incurred and are included in Operating Expenses-Services in the consolidated statements of income. Historically, the revenues we derive from our pari-mutuel wagering and lottery systems service contracts have exceeded the direct costs associated with fulfilling our obligations thereunder. We expect that we will continue to realize positive cash flow and operating income as we extend or renew existing service contracts. We also expect that we will enter into new contracts that are accretive to our cash flow. In addition, through advancements in technology, we are continually deploying more efficient and cost effective methods for manufacturing and delivering our products and services to our customers. We expect that technological efficiencies will continue to positively impact our future cash flows and operating results. We are not party to any other material short-term or long-term obligations or commitments pursuant to these service contracts.

        Periodically, we bid on new pari-mutuel and online lottery contracts. Once awarded, these contracts generally require significant up-front capital expenditures for terminal assembly, customization of software, software and equipment installation and telecommunications configuration. Historically we have funded these up-front costs through cash flows generated from operations, available cash on hand and borrowings under our credit facilities. Our ability to continue to procure new contracts will depend on, among other things, our then present liquidity levels and/or our ability to borrow at commercially acceptable rates to finance the initial up front costs. Once operational, long term service contracts have been accretive to our operating cash flow. For fiscal 2004, we anticipate that capital expenditures and software expenditures will be approximately $60.0 million. However, the actual level of expenditures will ultimately depend on the extent to which we are successful in winning new contracts. The amount of capital expenditures in fiscal 2005 and beyond will largely depend on the extent to which we are successful in winning new contracts. Furthermore, our pari-mutuel wagering network consists of approximately 26,000 wagering terminals. Periodically, we elect to upgrade the technological capabilities of older terminals and replace terminals that have exhausted their useful lives. We presently have no commitments to replace our existing terminal base, and our obligation to upgrade the terminals is discretionary. Servicing our installed terminal base requires that we maintain a supply of parts and accessories on hand. We are also required, contractually in some cases, to provide spare parts over an extended period of time, principally in connection with our systems and terminal sale transactions. To meet our contractual obligations and maintain sufficient levels of on-hand inventory to service our installed base, we purchase inventory on an as-needed basis. We presently have no inventory purchase obligations.

        At March 31, 2004, our available cash and borrowing capacity totaled $129.1 million compared to $106.5 million at December 31, 2003. Our available cash and borrowing capacities fluctuate principally based on the timing of collections from our customers, cash expenditures associated with new and existing pari-mutuel wagering and lottery systems contracts, repayment of our outstanding debt and changes in our working capital position. The increase in our available cash and borrowing capacity from the December 31, 2003 level principally reflects the net cash provided by operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2004 of $37.5 million, partially offset by wagering and other capital expenditures of $19.3 million, acquisition related payouts of $1.7 million and the payment of a $2.0 million preferred stock dividend.

        Of the $37.5 million provided by operations, $4.8 million was used for changes in working capital. The working capital changes occurred principally from decreases in accrued interest and other liabilities and an increase in prepaid assets, partially offset by reductions of inventories and the collections of receivables.

23



        We believe that our cash flow from operations, available cash and available borrowing capacity under the 2003 Facility will be sufficient to meet our liquidity needs, including anticipated capital expenditures, for the foreseeable future; however, we cannot assure you that this will be the case. While we are not aware of any particular trends, our contracts periodically renew and we cannot assure you that we will be successful in sustaining our cash flow from operations through renewal of our existing contracts or through the addition of new contracts. In addition, lottery customers in the United States generally require service providers to provide performance bonds in connection with each state contract. Our ability to obtain performance bonds on commercially reasonable terms is subject to prevailing market conditions, which may be impacted by economic and political events. Although we have not experienced any difficulty obtaining such bonds, we cannot assure you that we will continue to be able to obtain performance bonds on commercially reasonable terms or at all. While we are not aware of any reason to do so, if we need to refinance all or part of our indebtedness, including our 121/2% Senior Subordinated Notes, on or before maturity, or provide letters of credit or cash in lieu of performance bonds, we cannot assure you that we will be able to obtain new financing or to refinance any of our indebtedness, including the 2003 Facility and our 121/2% Senior Subordinated Notes, on commercially reasonable terms or at all.

New Accounting Pronouncements

        In December 2003, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (the "FASB") issued Statement No. 132 (revised 2003) Employers' Disclosures about Pensions and Other Postretirement Benefits—an amendment of FASB Statements No. 87, 88, and 106 ("SFAS 132 Amended"). SFAS 132 Amended revises employers' disclosures about pension plans and other postretirement benefit plans. It does not change the measurement or recognition of those plans required by FASB Statements No. 87, Employers' Accounting for Pensions, No. 88, Employers' Accounting for Settlements and Curtailments of Defined Benefit Pension Plans and for Termination Benefits ("SFAS 87"), and No. 106, Employers' Accounting for Postretirement Benefits Other Than Pensions ("SFAS 106"). SFAS 132 Amended retains the disclosure requirements contained in FASB Statement No. 132, Employers' Disclosures about Pensions and Other Postretirement Benefits ("SFAS 132"), which it replaces. It requires additional disclosures to those in the original SFAS 132 about the assets, obligations, cash flows, and net periodic benefit cost of defined benefit pension plans and other defined benefit postretirement plans. The required information is to be provided separately for pension plans and for other postretirement benefit plans. The provisions of SFAS 132 remain in effect until the provisions of SFAS 132 Amended are adopted. Except as noted below, SFAS 132 Amended is effective for the Company in the year 2003 financial statements. Disclosure of information about foreign plans required by paragraphs 5(d), 5(e), 5(g), and 5(k) of SFAS 132 Amended and disclosure of estimated future benefit payments required by paragraph 5(f) of SFAS 132 Amended are effective for fiscal year 2004.

        On March 12, 2003, the FASB added to its agenda a project that will seek to improve the accounting disclosures relating to stock-based compensation. Among other issues, the project on stock-based compensation will address whether to require that the cost of employee stock options be treated as an expense. The FASB plans to start deliberating the key issues on this subject at future public meetings and issued an Exposure Draft in March 2004 that could become effective in the first quarter of 2005.

Recent Developments

        At March 31, 2004, we agreed, in connection with GTech Corporation's planned acquisition of the Leeward Island Lottery Holding Company (LILHCO), to terminate our contract with the LILHCO at the end of 2004 for a payment of approximately $6.0 million upon conclusion of the planned transaction. We expect that substantially all of this payment will be recorded as a reduction to the previously recorded goodwill resulting from the 2003 acquisition of OES. We received this payment on May 5, 2004 along with approximately $2.2 million for contract services rendered and to be rendered through December 31, 2004, the expected end of the contract term.

24



QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

        Our products and services are sold to a diverse group of customers throughout the world. As such, we are subject to certain risks and uncertainties as a result of changes in general economic conditions, sources of supply, competition, foreign exchange rates, tax reform, litigation and regulatory developments. The diversity and breadth of our products and geographic operations mitigate the risk that adverse changes from any single event would materially affect our financial position.

        Additionally, as a result of the diversity of our customer base, we do not consider ourselves exposed to concentration of credit risks. These risks are further minimized by setting credit limits, ongoing monitoring of customer account balances, and assessment of the customers' financial strengths.

        Inflation has not had an abnormal or unanticipated effect on our operations. Inflationary pressures would be significant to our business if raw materials used for instant lottery ticket production, prepaid phone card production or terminal manufacturing are significantly affected. Available supply from the paper and electronics industries tends to fluctuate and prices may be affected by supply.

        For fiscal 2003 and the first quarter of 2004, inflation was not a significant factor in our results of operations, and we were not impacted by significant pricing changes in our costs, except for personnel related expenditures. We are unable to forecast the prices or supply of substrate, component parts or other raw materials for the balance of 2004, but we currently do not anticipate any substantial changes that will materially affect our operating results.

        In certain limited cases, our lottery contracts with our customers contain provisions to adjust for inflation on an annual basis, but we cannot be assured that this adjustment would cover raw material price increases or other costs of services. While we have long-term and generally satisfactory relationships with most of our suppliers, we also believe alternative sources to meet our raw material and production needs are available.

        In the normal course of business, we are exposed to fluctuations in interest rates and equity market risks as we seek debt and equity capital to sustain our operations. At March 31, 2004 approximately 12% of our debt was in fixed rate instruments. We consider the fair value of all financial instruments not to be materially different from their carrying value at year-end. The following table provides information about our financial instruments that are sensitive to changes in interest rates. The table presents principal cash flows and related weighted-average interest rates by expected maturity dates. (See "Liquidity, Capital Resources and Working Capital.")

  Average interest rate     5.19 % 4.39 % 3.92 % 3.91 % 3.85 % 3.85 % 3.87 %  

        We entered into derivative contracts to hedge part of our foreign currency exposure with respect to future cash receipts under our contract with the Ontario Lottery Commission. These instruments, which had been designated as cash flow hedges, were all settled during the three months ended March 31, 2004. For the three months ended March 31, 2004, we recorded a credit to other comprehensive income of $1.1 million for the change in the fair value of these foreign exchange instruments prior to settlement.

25



        We are also exposed to fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates as the financial results of our foreign subsidiaries are translated into U.S. dollars in consolidation. Assets and liabilities outside the United States are primarily located in the United Kingdom, Germany, Netherlands, France, Austria and Chile. Our investment in foreign subsidiaries with a functional currency other than the U.S. dollar are generally considered long-term investments. Accordingly, we do not hedge these net investments. Translation gains and losses historically have not been material. We manage our foreign currency exchange risks on a global basis by one or more of the following: (i) securing payment from our customers in U.S. dollars, when possible, (ii) utilizing borrowings denominated in foreign currency, and (iii) entering into foreign currency exchange contracts. In addition, a significant portion of the cost attributable to our foreign operations is incurred in the local currencies. We believe that a 10% adverse change in currency exchange rates would not have a significant adverse effect on our net earnings or cash flows. We may, from time to time, enter into foreign currency exchange or other contracts to hedge the risk associated with certain firm sales commitments, anticipated revenue streams and certain assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies.

        Our cash and cash equivalents and investments are in high-quality securities placed with a wide array of financial institutions with high credit ratings. This investment policy limits our exposure to concentration of credit risks.

Forward-Looking Statements

        Throughout this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q we make "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. In some cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as "may," "will," "estimate," "intend," "continue," "believe," "expect" or "anticipate," or the negatives thereof, variations thereon or similar terminology. The forward-looking statements contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q are generally located in the material set forth under the heading "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" but may be found in other locations as well. These forward-looking statements generally relate to plans and objectives for future operations and are based upon management's reasonable estimates of future results or trends. Although we believe that the plans and objectives reflected in or suggested by such forward-looking statements are reasonable, such plans or objectives may not be achieved.

        Actual results may differ from projected results due, but not limited, to unforeseen developments, including developments relating to the following:

26


        Actual future results may be materially different from what we expect. We will not update forward-looking statements even though our situation may change in the future.


Controls and Procedures

        As required by SEC rules, the Company has evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report. This evaluation was carried out under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer. Based on this evaluation, these officers have concluded that the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures are effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms.

        Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. There were no significant changes to our internal controls over financial reporting during the first quarter of 2004 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to affect, the Company's internal control over financial reporting. As with any system of internal controls, there are inherent limitations in the controls the Company has put in place. Specifically, collusion by two or more employees can override the controls put in place within any organization, and, individuals may execute transactions without the proper authority or disclosure.
