“Everi ended 2022 with another quarter of strong performance, including record fourth quarter revenue and Adjusted EBITDA, which extended our record of successful execution on our operating priorities,” said Randy Taylor, Chief Executive Officer of Everi. “Our ongoing investments in new product development and acquisitions helped grow our product portfolio and addressable markets and are a key driver of our operating success that resulted in an 18% revenue increase, an 8% rise in Adjusted EBITDA and a record $186.7 million in Free Cash Flow for the 2022 full year.

“Our team’s great performance during the last several years reflects the balance and diverse strengths across our operations – Games, FinTech, Loyalty, Digital and Mobile. Together with our solid balance sheet and strong Free Cash Flow generation, Everi is favorably positioned for both consistent near- and long-term growth through our continued investments in growth-focused internal product development initiatives and high-value acquisitions, as well as to return capital to shareholders through opportunistic share repurchases. We expect our successful execution on our growth initiatives, combined with our large percentage of high-margin recurring revenues in our overall revenue mix, will help us mitigate potential challenges of the uncertain macroeconomic environment and enable us to continue delivering profitable growth in 2023 and beyond.”
