NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
1. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Basis of Presentation and Consolidation
Our fiscal year is reported on a 52/53-week period ending on the Saturday nearest to September 30 each year. Similarly, our quarters end on the Saturday nearest to the last day of the quarter end month. For simplicity, fiscal periods in this report were presented using the calendar month end as outlined in the table below.
Our consolidated interim financial statements include the accounts of International Game Technology (IGT, we, our, or the Company), including all majority-owned or controlled subsidiaries and VIEs for which we are the primary beneficiary. All appropriate inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated.
Our consolidated interim financial statements for the current quarter and nine months ended June 30, 2011 have been prepared without audit and certain information and footnote disclosures have been condensed or omitted in conformity with SEC and US GAAP requirements on a basis consistent with the corresponding quarter and nine months ended June 30, 2010, and as appropriate, with the audited financial statements for the year ended September 30, 2010.
Our consolidated interim financial statements include all adjustments of a normal recurring nature necessary to fairly state our consolidated results of operations, financial position, and cash flows for all periods presented. Interim period results are not necessarily indicative of full year results. This quarterly report on Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2010. Unless otherwise noted, references to years in this report relate to our fiscal years ending September 30.
Use of Estimates
Our consolidated interim financial statements are prepared in conformity with US GAAP. Accordingly, we are required to make estimates, judgments and assumptions that we believe are reasonable based on our historical experience, contract terms, observance of known trends in our company and the industry as a whole, and information available from other outside sources. Our estimates affect reported amounts for assets, liabilities, revenues, expenses, and related disclosures. Actual results may differ from initial estimates.
Allowances for Credit Losses
We maintain allowances for credit losses related to accounts receivable and customer financing where collectability is uncertain. We evaluate the adequacy of our allowances for credit losses on a quarterly basis and consider a number of factors applicable to all of our customer receivables and financing, including customers’ financial condition, historical customer collection experience, receivable aging, economic conditions, legal environment, and regulatory landscape.
Our customer financing portfolio is comprised of two classes, contracts and notes. Our contracts include extended payment terms granted to qualifying customers for periods from one to five years and are secured by the related products sold. Our notes consist of development financing loans granted to select customers to assist in the funding of new or expanding gaming facilities, generally under terms of one to seven years and are secured by the developed property and/or other assets. Interest income on contracts and notes is recognized at prevailing market rates.
We place an internally assigned risk grade on each contract and note in our customer financing portfolio. Internally assigned risk grades fall into three categories (low, medium, high), based on a number of factors, including customer size, type, financial condition, historical collection experience, account aging, and credit ratings derived from credit reporting agencies and other industry trade reports. The high risk category includes most of our development financing loans in new markets and customers in regions with a history of currency or economic instability, such as South/Central America. Many of our high risk loans are performing according to contract and do not warrant an allowance. Internally assigned risk grades on each contract and note are evaluated on a quarterly basis.
Customer financing is classified as past due when a scheduled payment is not received within 30 days of a payment notice. Initially customer financing with past due payments are collectively evaluated for impairment. Contracts and notes are evaluated individually for impairment (specific reserves) when collectability becomes uncertain due to events and circumstances, such as bankruptcy and tax or legal issues, that cause an adverse change in a customer’s cash flows or financial condition. Accounts placed on specific reserve are simultaneously evaluated for probability of collection, which is used to determine the amount of the specific reserve. All changes in the net carrying amount of our contracts and notes are recorded as adjustments to bad debt expense or impairment.
When collection is deemed unlikely (typically reserved at 50% or greater) during our quarterly review as discussed above, the contract or note is placed on nonaccrual status and interest income is recognized on a cash basis. Uncollectible contracts or notes are written off when all reasonable collection efforts have been exhausted and it is determined that there is minimal chance of any kind of recovery, such as a customer property closure, bankruptcy restructuring or finalization, or other conditions that severely impact a customer’s ability to repay amounts owed.
Recently Adopted Accounting Standards or Updates
Credit Quality of Financing Receivables and Allowances for Credit Losses
At the beginning of 2011, we adopted accounting standards issued in July 2010 to address the FASB concerns about the sufficiency, transparency, and robustness of credit risk disclosures for financing receivables and the related allowances for credit losses. The required information is designed to enable a better understanding of:
These ASU disclosures were effective for our 2011 first quarter, except for allowance roll-forward disclosures effective for our 2011 second quarter and troubled debt restructuring disclosures effective for our year ending September 30, 2011. The adoption of this ASU did not and will not have a material impact on our financial statements. See Note 1 above and Note 3.
Consolidation of Variable Interest Entities
At the beginning of 2011, we adopted accounting standards issued in June 2009, which require reassessment of our primary beneficiary position in VIE arrangements on an on-going basis and adds further disclosures about our involvement in VIEs. The revised standard also replaces the quantitative-based risks and rewards approach with a qualitative approach focused on determining which enterprise has the power to direct VIE activities that most significantly impact its economic performance and is obligated to absorb losses or has the rights to receive the most significant benefit from the VIE. The adoption of this ASU did not have a material impact on our financial statements.
Recently Issued Accounting Standards or Updates—Not Yet Adopted
Fair Value Measurement Disclosures
In January 2010, the FASB issued an ASU which will require supplemental disclosures related to purchases, sales, issuances, and settlements of fair value instruments within the Level 3 reconciliation. This ASU will be effective for our 2012 first quarter and is not expected to have a material impact on our financial statements.
Additionally, in May 2011, the FASB issued an ASU to amend fair value measurement to achieve convergence between US GAAP and IFRS. The ASU changes some fair value measurement principles and disclosure requirements and is effective for our 2012 second quarter and not expected to have a material impact on our financial statements.
Accruals for Casino Jackpot Liabilities
In April 2010, the FASB issued an ASU clarifying that jackpot liabilities should not be accrued before they are won if the payout can be avoided. The ASU will be applied prospectively with a cumulative-effect adjustment in retained earnings at the beginning of 2012. This ASU is not expected to have a material impact on our financial statements.
Presentation of Comprehensive Income
In June 2011, the FASB issued an ASU to require other comprehensive income, including reclassification adjustments, to be presented with net income in one continuous statement or in a separate statement consecutively following net income. The ASU will be effective for our 2013 first quarter and is not expected to have a material impact on our financial statements.
2. VARIABLE INTERESTS AND AFFILIATES
Variable Interest Entities
New Jersey regulation requires that annuitized WAP jackpot payments to winners be administered through an individual trust set up for each WAP system. These trusts are VIEs. We determined that IGT was the primary consolidating beneficiary, because these VIE trusts are designed for the sole purpose of administering jackpot payments for IGT WAP winners and IGT guarantees all liabilities of the trusts. The assets of these consolidated VIEs can only be used to settle trust obligations and have been segregated on our balance sheet.
The consolidation of these VIEs primarily increases jackpot liabilities and related assets, as well as interest income and equivalent offsetting interest expense. Consolidated VIE trust assets and equivalent liabilities totaled $73.0 million at June 30, 2011 and $79.7 million at September 30, 2010.
Investments in Unconsolidated Affiliates
China LotSynergy Holdings, Ltd.
During the 2011 first quarter, we sold our CLS stock investment for net proceeds of $16.5 million and recognized a gain of $4.3 million.
At June 30, 2011, the fair value of our CLS convertible note and default put derivative together totaled $21.5 million. The adjusted cost basis of the note, including the conversion option, totaled $20.4 million. We determined that the conversion option did not qualify as a freestanding derivative requiring bifurcation at June 30, 2011. See Note 8 and Note 9 for additional information about CLS fair value assumptions and derivatives.
See Note 1 regarding our accounting policies for accounts receivable, customer financing and allowances for credit losses. Our allowances for accounts receivable totaled $17.8 million at June 30, 2011 and $24.6 million at September 30, 2010.
Customer Financing (Contracts and Notes)
Customer Financing Information At June 30, 2011
(1) See Alabama impairment discussion below.
The legality of electronic charitable bingo in Alabama was challenged during 2010 and IGT machines ceased to be operated at the VictoryLand Country Crossing and Greenetrack facilities. In our 2010 second quarter, $53.1 million of impairment was recognized related to Alabama charitable bingo market closures, which included note allowances of $47.6 million, accounts receivable allowances of $2.8 million, and gaming operations equipment impairment of $2.7 million. Further Alabama impairment of $8.2 million was recognized in our 2010 fourth quarter, including note allowances of $4.3 million and equipment impairment of $3.9 million.
At June 30, 2011, the recorded investment of impaired Alabama development financing loans totaled $83.9 million and related allowances totaled $51.9 million. Revenues or interest income related to these assets were recorded on a cash basis since our 2010 second quarter as collectability was not reasonably assured.
4. CONCENTRATIONS OF CREDIT RISK
Our receivables were concentrated in the following legalized gaming regions at June 30, 2011:
6. PROPERTY, PLANT AND EQUIPMENT
7. GOODWILL AND OTHER INTANGIBLES
Patent additions in the following table include capitalized legal costs.
Aggregate amortization expense totaled $11.1 million in the current quarter versus $12.6 million in the prior year quarter, and $34.3 million in the nine months ended June 30, 2011 versus $37.9 million for the prior year period.
8. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
Financial Assets (Liabilities) Carried at Fair Value
Reconciliation of Items Carried at Fair Value Using Significant Unobservable Inputs (Level 3)
Valuation Techniques and Balance Sheet Presentation
Money market funds were valued based on quoted market prices in active markets and are primarily money market securities.
Investments in unconsolidated affiliates were valued using quoted market prices when available or DCF models incorporating market participant assumptions for credit quality and market interest rates and a Black-Scholes or integrated lattice model with assumptions for stock price volatility and default recovery rates. These investments are presented as a component of other noncurrent assets. See Note 2.
Investments in ARS were valued using DCF, with certain assumptions related to lack of liquidity and observable market transactions. Related put rights were valued based on the difference between the ARS par and fair value, discounted for the broker’s non-performance risk and the time remaining until the exercise period. Our entire portfolio of ARS was sold during fiscal 2010.
