Section 2 - Financial Information


Item 2.02.              Results of Operations and Financial Condition.


The information contained in this Current Report is being furnished under Item 2.02.  As such, the information contained herein shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall such information be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.


On February 28, 2008, Scientific Games Corporation (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing, among other things, results for the three months and the year ended December 31, 2007.  A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.


The Company’s press release, in addition to containing results that are determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”), also contains the Company’s “EBITDA” results, which are non-GAAP earnings results that exclude certain items. EBITDA, as used in the press release, represents net income plus income tax expense, interest expense, and depreciation and amortization expenses, net of other income. EBITDA is included in the press release as, among other things, it is a basis upon which the Company assesses its financial performance, and it provides useful information regarding the Company’s ability to service its debt. In addition, EBITDA is useful to investors in evaluating the Company’s financial performance because it is a commonly used financial analysis tool for measuring and comparing gaming companies in several areas of liquidity, operating performance and leverage. EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income, cash flows from operations, or other consolidated income or cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP as measures of the Company’s profitability or liquidity.  EBITDA as used in the press release may differ from similarly titled measures presented by other companies. A table reconciling EBITDA to GAAP net income is included in the condensed consolidated financial statement data included in the Company’s press release.  Also included in the Company’s press release is certain net income information presented on a non-GAAP adjusted basis to indicate the effect of certain items noted in the press release.


EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP adjusted net income and diluted non-GAAP adjusted net income per share are non-GAAP financial measures that are presented as supplemental disclosures and are reconciled to GAAP net income and GAAP net income per diluted share in financial schedules accompanying the Company’s press release. In calculating the adjusted financial measures, the Company excludes certain items in order to better facilitate an understanding of the Company’s operating performance.





                The Company’s management uses these adjusted financial measures in conjunction with GAAP financial measures to: monitor and evaluate the performance of the Company’s business operations; facilitate management’s internal comparisons of the Company’s historical operating performance of its business operations; facilitate management’s external comparisons of the results of its overall business to the historical operating performance of other companies that may have different capital structures and debt levels; review and assess the operating performance of the Company’s management team and as a measure in evaluating employee compensation and bonuses; analyze and evaluate financial and strategic planning decisions regarding future operating investments; and plan for and prepare future annual operating budgets and determine appropriate levels of operating investments.


                The Company’s management believes that these adjusted financial measures are useful to investors to provide them with disclosures of the Company’s operating results on the same basis as that used by the Company’s management. The Company’s management also believes that, because it has historically provided such adjusted non-GAAP financial measures in its earnings releases, continuing to do so provides consistency in its financial reporting and continuity to investors for comparability purposes. Accordingly, the Company’s management believes that the presentation of the adjusted non-GAAP financial measures, when used in conjunction with GAAP financial measures, provides both management and investors with financial information that can be useful in assessing the Company’s financial condition and operating performance.


The adjusted financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income or net income per diluted share prepared in accordance with GAAP. The adjusted financial measures as defined in this press release may differ from similarly titled measures presented by other companies. The adjusted financial measures, as well as other information in the press release should be read in conjunction with the Company’s financial statements filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
