Forward-Looking Statements

 

Throughout this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q we make “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.  Forward-looking statements describe future expectations, plans, results or strategies and can often be identified by the use of terminology such as “may,” “will,” “estimate,” “intend,” “continue,” “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “could,” “potential,” “opportunity,” 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 statements are based upon management’s current expectations, assumptions and estimates and are not guarantees of future results or performance.  Actual results may differ materially from those projected in these statements due to a variety of risks and uncertainties and other factors, including, among other things: competition; material adverse changes in economic and industry conditions in our markets; recent changes to certain contracts; technological change; retention and renewal of existing contracts and entry into new contracts; availability and adequacy of cash flow to satisfy obligations and indebtedness or future needs; protection of intellectual property; security and integrity of software and systems; laws and government regulation, including those relating to gaming licenses, permits and operations; inability to identify, complete and integrate future acquisitions; seasonality; ability to enhance and develop successful gaming concepts; influence of certain stockholders; dependence on suppliers and manufacturers; liability for product defects; factors associated with foreign operations; dependence on key personnel; failure to perform on contracts; resolution of pending or future litigation; labor matters; and stock price volatility.  Additional information regarding risks and uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated in forward-looking statements is set forth from time to time in our filings with the SEC, including under the heading “Risk Factors” in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.   Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and except for our ongoing obligations under the U.S. federal securities laws, we undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements

 

(1) Consolidated Financial Statements

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The Consolidated Balance Sheet as of September 30, 2009, the Consolidated Statements of Operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008, and the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008, have been prepared by Scientific Games Corporation and are unaudited.  When used in these notes, the terms “we,” “us,” “our” and “Company” refer to Scientific Games Corporation and all entities included in our consolidated financial statements unless otherwise specified or the context otherwise indicates.  In the opinion of management, all adjustments necessary to present fairly our consolidated financial position as of September 30, 2009, the results of our operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008 and our cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008 have been made.  Management has evaluated subsequent events through the date of financial statement issuance on November 9, 2009.

 

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 our Current Report on Form 8-K filed on May 18, 2009 (which retrospectively adjusted portions of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2008 to reflect a change in accounting principle to reflect our adoption, effective January 1, 2009, of new Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) guidance on accounting for convertible debt instruments that may be settled in cash upon conversion). The results of operations for the period ended September 30, 2009 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results for a full year.

The weighted-average diluted common shares outstanding for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009 excludes the effect of approximately 5,774 and 6,470 weighted-average stock rights outstanding, respectively, because their effect would be anti-dilutive.  The weighted-average diluted common shares outstanding for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2008 excludes the effect of approximately 3,744 and 3,563 weighted-average stock rights outstanding, respectively, because their effect would be anti-dilutive.

 

The aggregate number of shares that we could be obligated to issue upon conversion of the remaining $99,191 in aggregate principal amount of our 0.75% convertible senior subordinated notes due 2024 (the “Convertible Debentures”), is approximately 3,409.  The Convertible Debentures provide for net share settlement upon conversion.  In December 2004, we purchased a bond hedge to mitigate the potential dilution from conversion of the Convertible Debentures during the term of the bond hedge.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited, in thousands, except per share amounts)

 

(1) Consolidated Financial Statements (continued)

 

During each of the first, second and third quarters of 2009, the average price of our common stock was lower than the conversion price of the Convertible Debentures.  Therefore, no shares related to the Convertible Debentures were included in our weighted-average diluted common shares outstanding for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009.  During the third quarter of 2008, the average price of our common stock was lower than the conversion price of the Convertible Debentures.  Therefore, no shares related to the Convertible Debentures were included in our weighted-average diluted common shares outstanding for the three months ended September 30, 2008.  During the second quarter of 2008, the average price of the Company’s common stock exceeded the conversion price of the Convertible Debentures; therefore, we have included approximately 6 shares related to our Convertible Debentures in our weighted-average diluted common shares outstanding for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2008.

In evaluating financial performance, we focus on operating income as a segment’s measure of profit or loss. Operating income is income before interest income, interest expense, equity in earnings of joint ventures, corporate expenses and income taxes. The accounting policies of the reportable segments are the same as those described in the summary of significant accounting policies (see Note 1 of our Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements in our Current Report on Form 8-K, filed on May 18, 2009).

 

(3) Equity Investments in Joint Ventures

 

We are a member of Consorzio Lotterie Nazionali (“CLN”), a consortium consisting principally of us, Lottomatica S.p.A, and Arianna 2001, a company owned by the Federation of Italian Tobacconists. The consortium holds a concession from the Italian Monopoli di Stato to be the exclusive operator of the Italian Gratta e Vinci instant lottery.  The concession commenced in mid-2004 and has an initial term of six years with a six-year extension option at the option of the Monopoli di Stato. Under our contract with CLN, we supply instant lottery tickets, game development services, marketing support, the instant ticket management system and systems support.  We also participate in the profits or losses of CLN as a 20% equity owner, and assist Lottomatica S.p.A in the lottery operations.  We account for this investment using the equity method of accounting.  For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009, we recorded income of $11,235 and $37,812, respectively, representing our share of the earnings of CLN in each period.  For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2008, we recorded income of $12,015 and $42,977, respectively, representing our share of the earnings of CLN for the indicated periods.  During the second quarter of 2009, we received a cash distribution of approximately $28.0 million from CLN.

 

On October 12, 2009, the members of CLN tendered for a new concession to operate the Gratta e Vinci instant ticket lottery upon the termination of CLN’s current concession. Although a  maximum of four concessions can be granted by the terms of the tender, we understand that our bidding group was the only group to submit a bid. The concession, anticipated to begin in June 2010, will have an initial term of nine years (subject to a performance evaluation during the fifth year) and may be extended by the Monopoli di Stato for an additional nine years.  Pricing for the new concession is set at 11.9% of retail sales, inclusive of retailer commissions of 8.0%, compared to the current tiered pricing structure, which averaged 12.1% of retail sales in the second quarter of 2009 inclusive of retailer commissions of 8.0% and a value-added tax (“VAT”). The new rate is exclusive of VAT; however VAT will be charged on the operating expenses of the concessionaire.

 

A non-bidding third party filed a request with the TAR Lazio (Rome Administrative Court) seeking the suspension and annulment of the tender.  We understand that the request claims that the tender is discriminatory and that it unlawfully limits competition. The request to suspend the tender was denied in hearings on October 14 and October 28, 2009. Another hearing has been scheduled for November 11, 2009 to address the request for annulment. We currently expect the results of the tender to be published in mid-November 2009. In the event that the request for annulment is granted, we cannot predict what actions, if any, the Italian government or Monopoli di Stato will take, including potentially passing new legislation, amending the tender procedures, issuing new tender procedures or exercising its option to extend CLN’s current concession.

 

In the event that our bidding group is the sole bidding group to be awarded a concession, our bidding group would be obligated to make upfront payments of €520,000 and €280,000 on or about November 30, 2009 and November 30, 2010, respectively. We would be responsible for our pro rata share of these payments (which would be €104,000 and €56,000, respectively, assuming our ownership interest in the entity that holds the concession remains at 20%). In conjunction with the submission of its bid, our bidding group provided bank guarantees to support a €40,000 bid guarantee and a €75,000 performance guarantee. We guaranteed our pro rata share of these guarantees through the issuance of €23,000 of letters of credit under our revolving credit facilities.

 

There can be no assurance that our bidding group will be awarded a concession to continue to operate the instant ticket lottery following the termination of CLN’s current concession or whether other operators will also be awarded a concession. In addition, there can be no assurance that we will continue to supply instant lottery tickets and/or other services under any future arrangements. In the event that our bidding group is awarded a concession, we anticipate that our bidding group will form and capitalize a new vehicle to hold the concession consistent with the tender requirements. We have entered into a memorandum of understanding with our current CLN partners with respect to the formation and governance of any new concession vehicle on terms substantially similar to the terms governing CLN. However, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to enter into definitive governing agreements, nor can we predict the final terms of any such definitive agreements (including terms relating to the structure of the vehicle and governance rights).

(6) Long-Term Debt

 

On May 21, 2009, Scientific Games International, Inc. (“SGI”) issued $225,000 in aggregate principal amount of its 9.25% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2019 (the “2009 Notes”) at an issue price of 96.823% of the principal amount.  The 2009 Notes were issued pursuant to an indenture dated as of May 21, 2009 (the “2009 Notes Indenture”) among SGI, as issuer, the Company, as a guarantor, the Company’s subsidiary guarantors party thereto and The Bank of Nova Scotia Trust Company of New York, as trustee.

 

The 2009 Notes bear interest at the rate of 9.25% per annum, which accrues from May 21, 2009 and is payable semiannually in arrears on June 15 and December 15 of each year, commencing on December 15, 2009. The 2009 Notes mature on June 15, 2019, unless earlier redeemed or repurchased, and are subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the 2009 Notes Indenture.

 

SGI may redeem some or all of the 2009 Notes at any time prior to June 15, 2014 at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the 2009 Notes plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to the date of redemption plus a “make whole” premium. SGI may redeem some or all of the 2009 Notes for cash at any time on or after June 15, 2014 at the prices specified in the 2009 Notes Indenture. In addition, at any time on or prior to June 15, 2012, SGI may redeem up to 35% of the initially outstanding aggregate principal amount of the 2009 Notes at a redemption price of 109.25% of the principal amount thereof, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to the date of redemption, with the net cash proceeds contributed to the capital of SGI from one or more equity offerings of the Company. Additionally, if a holder of the 2009 Notes is required to be licensed, qualified or found suitable under any applicable gaming laws or regulations and that holder does not become so licensed or qualified or is not found to be suitable, then SGI will have the right to, subject to certain notice provisions set forth in the 2009 Notes Indenture, (1) require that holder to dispose of all or a portion of those Notes or (2) redeem the 2009 Notes of that holder at a redemption price calculated as set forth in the 2009 Notes

(6) Long-Term Debt (continued)

 

Indenture. If the Company or SGI experiences specific kinds of changes in control or the Company or any of its restricted subsidiaries sells certain of its assets, then SGI must offer to repurchase the 2009 Notes on the terms set forth in the 2009 Notes Indenture.

 

The 2009 Notes are unsecured senior subordinated obligations of SGI and are subordinated to all of SGI’s existing and future senior debt, rank equally with all of SGI’s existing and future senior subordinated debt and rank senior to all of SGI’s future debt that is expressly subordinated to the 2009 Notes.  The 2009 Notes are structurally subordinated to all of the liabilities of the Company’s non-guarantor subsidiaries.

 

The 2009 Notes are guaranteed on an unsecured senior subordinated basis by the Company and all of its 100%-owned domestic subsidiaries (other than SGI). The guarantees of the 2009 Notes are subordinated to all of the guarantors’ existing and future senior debt, rank equally with all of their existing and future senior subordinated debt, and rank senior to all of their future debt that is expressly subordinated to the guarantees of the 2009 Notes. The 2009 Notes are structurally subordinated to all of the liabilities of the Company’s non-guarantor subsidiaries.

 

The 2009 Notes Indenture contains certain covenants that, among other things, limit the Company’s ability, and the ability of certain of its 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, or create certain liens and other encumbrances on assets.

 

The 2009 Notes Indenture contains events of default customary for agreements of its type (with customary grace periods, as applicable) and provides that, upon the occurrence of an event of default arising from certain events of bankruptcy or insolvency with respect to the Company or SGI, all outstanding Notes will become due and payable immediately without further action or notice. If any other type of event of default occurs and is continuing, then the trustee or the holders of at least 25% in principal amount of the then outstanding Notes may declare all the 2009 Notes to be due and payable immediately.

 

The 2009 Notes were issued in a private offering to qualified institutional buyers in accordance with Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, (the “Securities Act”) and to persons outside the United States under Regulation S under the Securities Act.  In connection with the issuance of the 2009 Notes, SGI, the Company, the Company’s subsidiary guarantors party thereto, and J.P. Morgan Securities Inc., Banc of America Securities LLC, Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC and Goldman, Sachs & Co., as representatives for the initial purchasers listed therein, entered into a registration rights agreement, dated May 21, 2009 (the “Registration Rights Agreement”). Under the Registration Rights Agreement, SGI and the guarantors agreed, for the benefit of the holders of the 2009 Notes, that they will file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) within 90 days after the date the 2009 Notes were issued, and use their commercially reasonable efforts to cause to become effective, a registration statement relating to an offer to exchange the 2009 Notes for an issue of SEC-registered notes (the “2009 Exchange Notes”) with terms identical to the 2009 Notes (except that the 2009 Exchange Notes will not be subject to restrictions on transfer or to any increase in annual interest rate as described below).

 

On September 17, 2009, the Company filed a Registration Statement with the SEC under Form S-4 pursuant to which SGI, offered to exchange all outstanding 2009 Notes that are validly tendered and not validly withdrawn for an equal principal amount of 2009 Exchange Notes that are, subject to specified conditions, freely transferable.  The exchange offer was launched on September 15, 2009 and expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 26, 2009.

 

On May 7, 2009, the Company entered into an agreement with the principal selling shareholder and key management of Global Draw Limited (“Global Draw”) related to the earn-out and contingent bonuses that were payable to them in connection with the Company’s 2006 acquisition.  Based on the performance of the business, the total amount payable was determined to be approximately £60,600 of which approximately £30,500 was paid in May 2009.  Approximately £28,100 of the total amount payable

(6) Long-Term Debt (continued)

 

was deferred under the terms of two-year, senior unsecured promissory notes issued by certain of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries (and guaranteed by the Company and certain of its U.S. subsidiaries).  The earn-out balance of approximately £2,000 was paid in September 2009.

 

The promissory note issued to the principal selling shareholder, which was executed on May 7, 2009 by Scientific Games Luxembourg Finance S.a.r.l. (“SGLF”), an indirect 100%-owned subsidiary of the Company, has a principal amount of approximately £26,000 and bears simple interest at the rate of 6.90% per annum, which interest is payable quarterly in arrears on the last day of March, June, September and December of each year, commencing on June 30, 2009.  The note matures on May 7, 2011.  Although not required to do so (except in connection with an event of default as described below), SGLF may repay all or a portion of the principal amount of the note at any time prior to maturity without premium or penalty.  The note is a senior unsecured obligation of SGLF and is guaranteed on a joint and several basis by the Company and certain of its 100%-owned domestic subsidiaries (including SGI).  Such guaranty represents “senior debt” as that term is defined in the indentures governing the Company’s 6.25% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2012 (the “2004 Notes”), the Convertible Debentures, SGI’s 7.875% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2016 (the “2008 Notes”) and the 2009 Notes.

 

If an event of default under the note shall occur and be continuing, the holder of the note may declare the principal amount of, and accrued interest on, the note to be immediately due and payable.  An “event of default” under the note shall occur if (1) SGLF shall fail to pay the then unpaid principal amount under the note within 15 days after the maturity date or any interest payment that is due and payable within 15 days after the applicable interest payment date, or (2) an “event of default” (as defined in the Credit Agreement (as defined below)) shall occur and be continuing and, as a result thereof, the amounts owing under the Credit Agreement immediately become due and payable.

 

The terms of the promissory notes issued to key management of Global Draw and the related guaranties are substantially identical to the note and guaranties described above, except that one of the notes was issued by a different foreign subsidiary of the Company.

 

On March 27, 2009, we and our 100%-owned subsidiary, SGI, entered into an amendment (the “First Amendment”) to the credit agreement, dated as of June 9, 2008 (the “Credit Agreement”), among SGI, as borrower, the Company, as guarantor, the several lenders from time to time parties thereto and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. (“JPMorgan”), as administrative agent  The purpose of the First Amendment was to provide the Company with additional operating and financing flexibility.

 

Under the First Amendment, (i) up to approximately $18,800 in certain charges incurred and reserves created in the fourth quarter of 2008, (ii) up to $15,000 of certain charges that may be incurred during the 12-month period commencing on March 1, 2009, including charges in connection with cost-reduction initiatives, and (iii) certain costs and fees incurred in connection with the First Amendment, will be added back to “Consolidated EBITDA” for purposes of calculating the “Consolidated Leverage Ratio” and the “Consolidated Senior Debt Ratio” (as such terms are defined under the Credit Agreement).  In addition, for purposes of determining the Consolidated Leverage Ratio and the Consolidated Senior Debt Ratio as of any date prior to the earliest date on which any of the holders of Convertible Debentures may require the Company to repurchase their Convertible Debentures (currently June 1, 2010) (the “Convertible Debentures Repurchase Date”) neither (i) the earn-out payable with respect to the Company’s acquisition of Global Draw nor (ii) the principal amount of any unsecured promissory notes that may be issued in order to defer payment of up to the equivalent of $60,000 of such earn-out (provided that, among other terms of such promissory notes, no principal payment thereon is required prior to September 30, 2010), will be included as “Indebtedness” in the calculation of “Consolidated Total Debt” (as such terms are defined in the Credit Agreement).  Accordingly, the promissory notes described above that were issued to the principal selling shareholder and key management of Global Draw will not be included as Indebtedness in the calculation of Consolidated Total Debt for purposes of determining the Consolidated Leverage Ratio and the Consolidated Senior Debt Ratio prior to the Convertible Debenture Repurchase Date.

 

In conjunction with the promissory notes issued to defer payment of a portion of the Global Draw earn-out, the revolving credit facility and the term loan facility under the Credit Agreement will mature (if earlier than the date that would otherwise apply under the terms of the Credit Agreement) on February 7, 2011 unless on such date no such promissory notes remain outstanding or the sum of the aggregate available revolving commitments under the Credit Agreement plus unrestricted cash and cash equivalents of SGI and the guarantors under the Credit Agreement is not less than $50,000 in excess of the amount required to repay in full such outstanding promissory notes.

 

Under the First Amendment, for purposes of determining the Consolidated Leverage Ratio as of any date of determination prior to the earlier of the Convertible Debentures Repurchase Date and the date the Convertible Debentures are redeemed in full, unrestricted cash and cash equivalents of SGI and the guarantors up to the “Debenture Reserve Amount” at such determination date will be netted against the then outstanding principal amount of the Convertible Debentures (and Consolidated Total Debt will be thereby reduced to the extent of such netting).  The “Debenture Reserve Amount” is an amount equal to the net cash proceeds received by SGI or the guarantors after the date of the First Amendment and prior to the Convertible Debentures Repurchase Date from (i) the issuance by the

Company of shares of its capital stock (other than disqualified stock), or the issuance of “Permitted Additional Senior Indebtedness” or “Permitted Additional Subordinated Debt”, or Indebtedness under the “Incremental Facilities” (as such terms are defined in the Credit Agreement), and (ii) any “Asset Sales” (as defined in the Credit Agreement) (up to an aggregate of $125,000 of net cash proceeds) with respect to which a reinvestment notice is timely given (provided that the Debenture Reserve Amount will (A) not exceed the outstanding principal amount of the Convertible Debentures, (B) be reduced to zero on the Convertible Debentures Repurchase Date and (C) to the extent the Debenture Reserve Amount is increased as a result of Assets Sales, will be decreased if and to the extent that term loans under the Credit Agreement are prepaid in lieu of reinvesting the net cash proceeds there from pursuant to a reinvestment notice).  The 2009 Notes constitute “Permitted Additional Subordinated Debt” and, as such, the net cash proceeds from the issuance of such notes will be included in the “Debenture Reserve Amount” to the extent permitted under the First Amendment.

 

The First Amendment increased each of the interest rates set forth in the pricing grid in the Credit Agreement by 0.25% such that, depending upon the Consolidated Leverage Ratio, the interest rate will vary from 2.00% to 3.00% above LIBOR for eurocurrency loans, and 1.00% to 2.00% above the higher of (i) the prime rate or (ii) the Federal Funds Effective Rate plus 0.50% for base rate loans.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, from the Effective Date (as defined in the Credit Agreement) until September 30, 2009, the applicable margin for eurocurrency loans was deemed to be 3.00% and the applicable margin for base rate loans was deemed to be 2.00%.

 

In connection with the First Amendment, SGI agreed to pay an aggregate of approximately $2,800 in fees to consenting lenders and the administrative agent.

 

On September 30, 2009, the Company and SGI entered into a second amendment (the “Second Amendment”) to the Credit Agreement.  The primary purpose of the Second Amendment was to facilitate our ability to participate in the recently announced competitive tender process for a license to sell instant lottery tickets under the Gratta e Vinci lottery in Italy.

 

The Second Amendment provides that certain payments, costs and obligations made or incurred by any of the Company or its subsidiaries, whether directly or indirectly, in connection with any award of a license to operate the instant ticket lottery (the “Italian Concession”), including any up-front fee required under the tender process (collectively, “Italian Concession Obligations”), will be permitted, subject to certain limitations, under the Credit Agreement covenant restricting “Investments” (as defined in the Credit Agreement) (to the extent such Italian Concession Obligations are deemed to be Investments under the Credit Agreement). Certain “Guarantee Obligations” (as defined in the Credit Agreement) incurred by any of the Company or its subsidiaries in respect of certain Italian Concession Obligations will be permitted under the Credit Agreement covenant restricting Indebtedness.  In addition, the Second Amendment provides that certain Italian Concession Obligations paid or incurred in an applicable period will be added back to the definition of Consolidated EBITDA to the extent such Italian Concession Obligations are treated as an expense in the period paid or incurred.

 

The Second Amendment provides further that, in lieu of any required prepayment of term loans under the Credit Agreement, the net cash proceeds from any Asset Sale or “Recovery Event” (as defined in the Credit Agreement) may, during the 12-month reinvestment period, be applied to make or incur any Investment to fund or satisfy any Italian Concession Obligations not yet made or satisfied (or, under certain circumstances, may be deemed to apply to any Investment that is made or incurred to fund or satisfy Italian Concession Obligations already funded or satisfied).

 

In addition, pursuant to the Second Amendment, we will be required to maintain the following revised financial ratios during the following relevant periods:

·                                           a Consolidated Leverage Ratio as at the last day of each fiscal quarter no more than the ratio set forth below with respect to such fiscal quarter or with respect to the period during which such fiscal quarter ends:

 

·                                          4.25 to 1.00 (fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2008 through September 30, 2009);

 

·                                          4.75 to 1.00 (fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2009 through December 31, 2010);

·                                          4.25 to 1.00 (fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2012 through September 30, 2012); and

 

·                                          4.00 to 1.00 (fiscal quarter ending December 31, 2012 and thereafter);

 

·                                             a Consolidated Senior Debt Ratio as at the last day of each fiscal quarter no more than the ratio set forth below with respect to such fiscal quarter or with respect to the period during which such fiscal quarter ends:

 

·                                          2.50 to 1.00 (fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2008 through September 30, 2009);

 

·                                          2.75 to 1.00 (fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2009 through December 31, 2010); and

 

·                                          2.50 to 1.00 (fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2011 and thereafter);

 

·                                             a “Consolidated Interest Coverage Ratio” (as defined in the Credit Agreement) for any period of four consecutive fiscal quarters of not less than the ratio set forth below with respect to such period or with respect to the period during which such four consecutive fiscal quarters ends:

 

·                                          3.50 to 1.00 (four consecutive fiscal quarters ending on or prior to September 30, 2009); and

 

·                                          3.00 to 1.00 (four consecutive fiscal quarters ending December 31, 2009 and thereafter).

 

Pursuant to the Second Amendment, certain additional dispositions will be permitted under the Credit Agreement covenant restricting “Dispositions,” including, subject to certain limitations, dispositions pursuant to certain permitted investments such as permitted investments in “Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries,” joint ventures and “Permitted Acquisitions” (as such terms are defined in the Credit Agreement).

 

The interest rates set forth in the pricing grid in the Credit Agreement will be unchanged, except that, pursuant to the Second Amendment, an interest rate level will be added to the top of the grid such that, if the Consolidated Leverage Ratio as of the most recent determination date is equal to or greater than 4.25 to 1 (and, in any event, for the six-month period beginning on September 30, 2009), the interest rate will be 3.25% above LIBOR for eurocurrency loans, and 2.25% above the higher of (i) the prime rate or (ii) the Federal Funds Effective Rate plus 0.50% for base rate loans.

 

The Second Amendment also provides that the commitment fee rate payable in respect of the available revolving credit facility commitments under the Credit Agreement will be (i) 0.50% per annum if the Consolidated Leverage Ratio as of the most recent determination date is less than 4.25 to 1.00 or (ii) 0.75% per annum if the Consolidated Leverage Ratio as of the most recent determination date is greater than or equal to 4.25 to 1.00 (and, in any event, for the six-month period beginning on September 30, 2009).

 

In connection with the Second Amendment, SGI agreed to pay an aggregate of approximately $2,800 in fees to consenting lenders and the administrative agent.

 

On September 30, 2009, we had $201,408 of availability under our revolving credit facility.  There were no borrowings and $48,592 in outstanding letters of credit under our revolving credit facility as of September 30, 2009.

 

We were in compliance with our debt covenants as of September 30, 2009.

 

The Company may, from time to time, seek to retire or purchase its outstanding debt in open market purchases, in privately negotiated transactions, or otherwise. Any such retirement or purchase of debt may be funded by cash flows from operations, borrowings or other sources and will depend upon prevailing market conditions, liquidity requirements, contractual restrictions and other factors, and the amounts involved may be material.  During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009, we repurchased approximately $43,188 and $174,591, respectively, in aggregate principal amount of our Convertible Debentures for approximately $42,369 and $166,372, respectively, in cash under our previously announced Convertible Debenture repurchase program.  During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009, we recognized a gain on early extinguishment of debt of approximately $550 and $4,239, respectively, from the Convertible Debenture repurchase program.  During the nine months ended September 30, 2009, we repurchased approximately $12,925 in aggregate principal amount of our 2004 Notes for approximately $12,396 in cash under our previously announced 2004 Notes repurchase program.  During the nine months ended September 30, 2009, we recognized a gain on early extinguishment of debt of approximately $355 from the 2004 Notes repurchase program.

(6) Long-Term Debt (continued)

 

During the second and third quarters of 2009, in connection with repurchases made under our Convertible Debenture repurchase program, we unwound a corresponding portion of the convertible bond hedge and warrant option transactions that we entered into in December 2004 in connection with the original issuance of the Convertible Debentures such that the number of call options held by us under the bond hedge was reduced from 275 to approximately 99 and the number of warrants held by the warrant counterparties was reduced from approximately 9,450 to approximately 3,409.  We received a net cash settlement of approximately $130 and $1,334, respectively, during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009 as a result of this unwinding of a portion of the convertible bond hedge and warrant option transactions.  For additional information on the bond hedge and warrants, refer to Note 8 of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements included in our Current Report on Form 8-K filed on May 18, 2009.

 

On January 1, 2009, we adopted new FASB guidance on accounting for convertible debt instruments that may be settled in cash upon conversion (the “New Convertible Debt Guidance”).  The New Convertible Debt Guidance clarifies that convertible debt instruments that may be settled in cash upon conversion are not addressed by previous convertible debt accounting guidance and specifies that issuers of such instruments should separately account for the liability and equity components in a manner that will reflect the entity’s nonconvertible debt borrowing rate when interest cost is recognized in subsequent periods. The New Convertible Debt Guidance was effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2008, and interim periods within those fiscal years, and was required to be applied retrospectively to all periods presented.  The impact of adoption was an adjustment to accumulated earnings of approximately $22,600 representing the cumulative effect of a change in accounting principle as of January 1, 2007.

(6) Long-Term Debt (continued)

 

As of September 30, 2009, the remaining discount will be amortized over a period of approximately eight months.  The conversion price of the remaining $99,191 in aggregate principal amount of the Convertible Debentures is $29.10 and the aggregate number of shares that we could be obligated to issue upon conversion is approximately 3,409.

 

The effective interest rate on the liability component of the Convertible Debentures is approximately 6.25% for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008.  The amount of interest cost recognized for the contractual interest coupon during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009 was approximately $213 and $1,109, respectively.  The amount of interest cost recognized for the contractual interest coupon during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2008 was approximately $513 and $1,540, respectively.  The amount of interest cost recognized for the amortization of the discount on the liability component of the Convertible Debentures during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009 was approximately $1,514 and $7,598, respectively.  The amount of interest cost recognized for the amortization of the discount on the liability component of the Convertible Debentures during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2008 was approximately $3,362 and $9,783, respectively.

 

(7) Derivative Financial Instruments

 

Effective October 17, 2008, SGI entered into a three-year interest rate swap agreement (the “Hedge”) with JPMorgan.  Under the Hedge, which is designated as a cash flow hedge, SGI pays interest on a $100,000 notional amount of debt at a fixed rate of 3.49% and receives interest on a $100,000 notional amount of debt at the prevailing three-month LIBOR rate.  The objective of the Hedge is to eliminate the variability of cash flows attributable to the LIBOR component of interest expense paid on $100,000 of our variable-rate debt.  As of September 30, 2009, the Hedge was measured at a fair value of $4,490 using Level 2 valuation techniques of the fair value hierarchy and included in other long-term liabilities on the Consolidated Balance Sheet.

 

We believe we have matched the critical terms of the hedged variable-rate debt with the Hedge and expect the Hedge to be highly effective in offsetting changes in the expected cash flows due to fluctuation in the three-month LIBOR-based rate over the term of the forecasted interest payments related to the $100,000 notional amount of variable-rate debt.  Hedge effectiveness is measured quarterly on a retrospective basis using the cumulative dollar-offset approach in which the cumulative changes in the cash flows of the actual swap are compared to the cumulative changes in the cash flows of the hypothetical swap.  The effective portion of the Hedge is recorded in other comprehensive income (loss) and the ineffective portion of the Hedge, if any, is recorded in the Consolidated Statement of Operations.  During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009, we recorded a gain of approximately $1,349 and $2,150, respectively in other comprehensive income (loss).  There was no ineffective portion of the Hedge recorded in the Consolidated Statement of Operations. Amounts recorded in other comprehensive income (loss) that were deferred on the effective hedged forecasted transactions are reclassified to earnings when the interest expense related to the hedged item affects earnings.

(9) Pension and Other Post-Retirement Plans

 

We have defined benefit pension plans for our U.S.-based union employees, our U.K.-based union employees, and certain Canadian-based employees (the “U.S. Plan,” the “U.K. Plan” and the “Canadian Plan,” respectively).  Retirement benefits under the U.S. Plan are based upon the number of years of credited service up to a maximum of 30 years for the majority of the employees.  Retirement benefits under the U.K. Plan are based on an employee’s average compensation over the two years preceding retirement.  Retirement benefits under the Canadian Plan are generally based on the number of years of credited service.  Our policy is to fund the minimum contribution permissible by the respective tax authorities.

 

The following table sets forth the combined amount of net periodic benefit cost recognized for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008.

We have a 401(k) plan for U.S.-based employees who are not covered by a collective bargaining agreement.  Effective February 28, 2009, we reduced the matching contributions from 50 cents to 25 cents on the dollar for the first 6% of participant contributions for a match of up to 1.5% of eligible compensation.

(10) Income Taxes

 

The effective tax rates of 31.2% and 82.0%, respectively, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009 were determined using an estimated annual effective tax rate.  The effective tax rate for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009 includes the impact of a valuation allowance against the deferred tax asset related to foreign tax credits and the release of certain FIN 48 reserves related to tax settlements in the third quarter.  The effective tax rates of 30.8% and 32.2%, respectively, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2008 were determined using an estimated annual effective tax rate, which was less than the federal statutory rate of 35% due to lower tax rates applicable to earnings from operations outside the United States.

 

At December 31, 2008, the Company had a deferred tax asset for its foreign tax credit (“FTC”) carry forward of approximately $40,400.  The Company has and will continue to explore tax planning strategies to use all of its FTC but at March 31, 2009, the Company established a valuation allowance of approximately $33,833 against the FTC deferred tax asset to reduce the asset to the net amount management estimates is “more likely than not” to be realized.

 

Further, the Company determined it is not “more likely than not” that the foreign taxes generated in 2009 will be realized in full against its U.S. tax liability during the FTC carry forward period.  As a result, the Company’s 2009 annual effective income tax rate is greater than the federal statutory rate because of the valuation allowance established against the deferred tax asset for a portion of the FTC generated in 2009.
