GAMING PARTNERS INTERNATIONAL CORPORATION
CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(unaudited)

Note 1.  Nature of Business and Significant Accounting Policies
 
Organization and Nature of Business

 Gaming Partners International Corporation (GPIC) has two operating subsidiaries, Gaming Partners International USA, Inc. (GPI USA) and Gaming Partners International SAS (GPI SAS). In addition, GPI USA owns GPI Mexicana S.A. de C.V. (GPI Mexicana), a manufacturing subsidiary. GPI USA was founded in 1963 as Paul-Son Gaming Supplies by Paul S. Endy, Jr., and initially manufactured and sold dice to casinos in Las Vegas, Nevada. GPI SAS was founded in 1923 as Bourgogne et Grasset by Etienne Bourgogne and Claudius Grasset in Beaune, France to produce and sell counterfeit-resistant chips to casinos in Monaco. GPIC was formed in 2002 through a reverse merger between Paul-Son Gaming Corporation and Bourgogne et Grasset initiated by Francois Carrette, whose firm, Holding Wilson, SA, remains GPIC’s controlling shareholder. The Company has established brand names such as Paulson®, Bourgogne et Grasset® (B&G), and Bud Jones®. GPIC and each of its subsidiaries are sometimes collectively referred to herein as the “Company,” “us,” “we” or “our.”

The Company is headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada and has manufacturing facilities in Las Vegas, Nevada; San Luis Rio Colorado, Mexico; and Beaune, France. GPI USA has sales offices in Las Vegas, Nevada; Atlantic City, New Jersey; and Gulfport, Mississippi and sells our casino products to licensed casinos primarily in the Americas. GPI SAS has a sales office in Beaune, France and sells our casino products internationally to licensed casinos. Most of our products are sold directly to end-users, however, in some regions of the world we sell through distributors.

Our business activities include the manufacture and supply of gaming chips, table layouts, playing cards, gaming furniture, table accessories, and dice, all of which are used in conjunction with casino table games such as blackjack, poker, baccarat, craps and roulette.

Significant Accounting Polices

Basis of Consolidation and Presentation. >  The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of GPIC and its wholly-owned subsidiaries GPI SAS, GPI USA, and GPI Mexicana. All material intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. The condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for interim financial information and do not include all of the information and notes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements.   These statements should be read in conjunction with our annual audited consolidated financial statements and related notes included in our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2009.

These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, in the opinion of management, reflect only normal and recurring adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of results for such periods. The results of operations for an interim period are not necessarily indicative of the results for the full year.

Reclassification. > Certain prior period amounts in the condensed consolidated financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the September 30, 2010 presentation. These reclassifications had no effect on our net income. These reclassifications relate to including product development expenses in general and administrative expenses, instead of presenting these expenses separately.
 
Recently Issued Accounting Standards.>  In July 2010, the Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued ASU 2010-20, Disclosure about the Credit Quality of Financing Receivables and the Allowance for Credit Losses. ASU 2010-20 amends ASU 310 to require additional disclosures regarding the credit quality of financing receivables and the related allowance for credit losses. The amended guidance requires entities to disaggregate by segment or class certain existing disclosures and provide certain new disclosures about its financial receivables and related allowance for credit losses. The amended guidance is effective for interim and annual financial periods beginning after December 15, 2010. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this ASU on its consolidated financial statements. The adoption of the ASU is not expected to have a material effect on the Company’s results of operations, financial position or cash flows.

In January 2010, the Financial FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2010-06, Improving Disclosures about Fair Value Measurements (Topic 820) — Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures.  ASU No. 2010-06 provides for more robust disclosures about the assets and liabilities measured at fair value, the valuation techniques used and disclosure regarding transfers between levels 1, 2 and 3.  ASU No. 2010-06 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2009 and for interim periods within that fiscal year. The adoption of ASU No. 2010-06 did not impact the Company’s financial position or results of operations.

 
5

 

In October 2009, the FASB issued ASU No. 2009-13, Revenue Recognition (Topic 605) — Multiple-Deliverable Revenue Arrangements.  ASU No. 2009-13 addresses the accounting for multiple-deliverable arrangements to enable companies to account for products or services (deliverables) separately rather than as a combined unit since companies often provide multiple products or services to their customers. This guidance establishes a selling price hierarchy for determining the selling price of a deliverable.  ASU No. 2009-13 is effective prospectively for revenue arrangements entered into or materially modified in fiscal years beginning on or after June 15, 2010 and early adoption is permitted. Management is currently evaluating the requirements of ASU No. 2009-13 and has not yet determined the impact, if any, on our consolidated financial statements.

Note 2.  Marketable Securities

Available for sale marketable securities consist of investments in securities such as certificates of deposit offered by French and US banks, bond mutual funds, term bonds, and term notes (in thousands):

Total marketable securites
  $ 16,469     $ (15 )   $ 16,454     $ 15,600     $ -     $ 15,600  

We present our marketable securities at their estimated fair value.  Fair value is the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date.  The Company has determined that all of its marketable securities fall into the Level 1 category, with asset values recorded at quoted prices in active markets for identical assets.

In January 2010, a fully amortized patent expired, resulting in a reduction to the gross carrying value and accumulated amortization of $540,000.  In June 2010, a partially amortized patent was impaired and removed, resulting in a reduction to the gross carrying value of $12,500, accumulated amortization of $4,800, and impairment loss of $7,700.

In August 2010 the Company licensed certain Radio Frequency Identification Device (RFID) intellectual property  and  purchased certain software to converge high- and low-frequency RFID applications to improve functionality, security, and communications for a variety of casino management systems.
 
Amortization expense for intangible assets for the three months ended September 30, 2010 and 2009 was $15,000 and $4,000, respectively.  Amortization expense for intangible assets for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 and 2009 was $46,000 and $14,000, respectively.

Note 8.  Geographic and Product Line Information

We manufacture and sell casino table game equipment and have determined that we operate in one operating segment - casino game equipment products.  Although the Company derives its revenues from a number of different product lines, the Company does not allocate resources based on the operating results from the individual product lines nor does it manage each individual product line as a separate business unit.

Note 10.  Earnings per Share (EPS)

Basic EPS is calculated by dividing net income by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted EPS reflects the effect of potential common stock, which consists of assumed stock options. Potentially dilutive securities are not taken into account when their effect would be antidilutive.

The weighted-average number of common shares outstanding used in the computation of basic and diluted earnings per share is as follows (in thousands):

- Diluted
    8,207       8,103       8,205       8,103  

For the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2009, the Company was in a loss position and, accordingly, the basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding were equal because any increase to the basic shares would have been antidilutive. Therefore, we did not calculate the dilutive effect of the 567,500 options then outstanding.

ITEM 2.        MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

The following discussion is intended to assist in the understanding of our results of operations and our present financial condition. The condensed consolidated financial statements and the accompanying notes contain additional detailed information that should be referred to when reviewing this material. Statements in this discussion may be forward-looking. Such forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ significantly from those expressed. See Item 1A, Risk Factors of the Company’s Form 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2009.

For a Company Overview and information on our products as well as general information, see Part I—Item 1. Business of the Company’s Form 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2009.

Overview of our Business

GPIC manufactures and supplies casino chips, (including low and high frequency RFID casino chips), under the brand names of Paulson®, Bourgogne et Grasset®, and Bud Jones®, low and high frequency RFID hardware and software, table layouts, playing cards, dice, gaming furniture, roulette wheels, table accessories, and other products that are used with casino table games such as blackjack, poker, baccarat, craps and roulette. GPIC is headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada, with offices in Beaune, France; San Luis Rio Colorado, Mexico; Atlantic City, New Jersey; and Gulfport, Mississippi. GPIC sells its products to licensed casinos worldwide.  We operate in one segment and have two operating subsidiaries: GPI USA and GPI SAS, a French subsidiary.  Our subsidiaries have the following distribution and product focus:

 
 ·
GPI USA sells in the Americas out of regional offices in the United States. GPI USA sells our full product line with most of the products manufactured in Mexico with the remainder either manufactured in the United States or France.
 
·
GPI SAS sells internationally out of Beaune, France, with most sales occurring in Europe and Asia. GPI SAS predominately sells casino chips, including both American-style casino chips and European-style casino chips, which are also known as plaques and jetons. Most of the products sold by GPI SAS are manufactured in France, with the remainder manufactured in Mexico.

Historically, we have experienced significant fluctuations in our quarterly operating results and expect such fluctuations to continue. Our operating results fluctuate due to a number of factors, but primarily reflect the opening of new casinos, the expansion of existing casinos, and large replacement orders for casino chips - our primary product line, which typically represents over 60% of the Company’s revenues. The nature of these events is difficult to forecast and largely beyond our ability to influence, which creates variability in revenue and earnings.  While most large projects are pursued years in advance, both large and small sales opportunities arise with little prior notice.  An indicator of future sales is found in our backlog report, which reflects signed orders that are planned to be shipped in the fourth quarter.

In addition, we have signed orders totaling $7.2 million that we plan to ship in the first half of 2011.

Overview of our Industry

In the United States, the general slowdown in the gaming industry has negatively affected our casino customers and therefore our sales. Casinos have been working to reduce their operating costs and capital expenditures. We have seen a slowing down of the typical replacement cycle for consumable products, such as our cards, layouts and dice, as well as a reduction in casino openings, expansions, and replacement orders, on which our casino chip and furniture sales are largely dependent.  To the extent these economic conditions continue, we anticipate that our revenues in future quarters could be adversely affected.

Apart from the above general industry trends, the states of  Pennsylvania, Delaware and West Virginia recently legalized table games and licensed GPI USA as an equipment vendor.  Though our most significant sales in Pennsylvania were in the second quarter, we continued to ship products from each of our product lines to several Pennsylvania casinos that commenced operations in the third quarter.

Internationally, Macau continues to be the largest gaming market and continues to post record gaming revenues. Other parts of Asia have also become significant gaming destinations, such as Singapore, where the Sentosa casino and the Marina Bay Sands casino opened in February and April 2010, respectively.  In 2011, the Company will supply both plaques and chips for the opening of the Galaxy Macau casino.  In November 2010, the Company determined to create a local sales and service office in Macau to better serve its Asian customers.

Financial and Operational Highlights

For the third quarter of 2010, our revenues were $12.4 million, a decrease of $1.0 million, or 7.8%, compared to revenues of $13.4 million for the same period of 2009.  Our net income for the third quarter of 2010 was $0.8 million, compared to a net loss of $0.3 million for the same period in 2009.  The primary reason for this difference was a $1.6 million impairment of goodwill that we recorded in September 2009.

Other Matters

GPI SAS uses the euro as its functional currency.  At September 30, 2010 and December 31, 2009 the US dollar to euro exchange rates were $1.3648 to one euro and $1.4406 to one euro, respectively, which represents a 5.3% stronger dollar compared to the euro. The average exchange rates for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 and September 30, 2009 were $1.3165 and $1.3650, which represents a 3.5% stronger dollar compared to the euro.

This strengthening of the dollar compared to the euro for the first nine months of 2010 resulted in a reduction in foreign currency translation in other comprehensive income in the balance sheet to $2,287,000 at September 30, 2010 from $3,273,000 at December 31, 2009.

GPI Mexicana uses the US dollar as its functional currency. The average exchange rates for the quarters ended September 30, 2010 and 2009 were 12.81 pesos to the US dollar and 13.26 pesos to the US dollar, respectively, which represents a 3.4% weaker dollar compared to the Mexican peso. The weaker dollar compared with the Mexican peso had a negative impact of $58,000 on the Statement of Operations for the third quarter 2010.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING ESTIMATES

Financial statement preparation requires management to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue, and expenses and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared using the same critical accounting estimates discussed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2009.
