  • During the first quarter, the company received 8.2 million shares related to the previously announced accelerated share repurchase (ASR).  The total number of shares repurchased by IGT under the ASR through the completion date of January 22, 2014 was 11.6 million, at a discounted average price of $17.22 per share, representing approximately 5% of the total shares outstanding when the program commenced.
  • During the quarter, the company announced its fifth consecutive quarterly cash dividend increase, up 57% compared to the same quarter last year. 
  • During the first quarter, the company returned $226 million in the form of dividends and share repurchases to its shareholders.

Other
References to per share amounts in this release are based on weighted average diluted shares of common stock outstanding, unless otherwise specified.

Outlook
Given declining gross gaming revenue trends, we anticipate that the lower end of our previously announced guidance range is more likely, with potential further downside risk.  We are in the process of implementing a number of measures, including cost reductions, to mitigate this risk.

GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations for fiscal year 2014 will include acquisition-related expenses, primarily related to DoubleDown, severance costs, and certain discrete tax items or benefits, the amount of which is not determinable at this time.  The company may also recognize other items that are not currently determinable, but may be significant. For this reason, the company is unable to provide estimates for full-year GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations at this time.

Earnings Conference Call
As previously announced on January 9, 2014, IGT will host a conference call to discuss its first quarter fiscal year 2014 earnings results on Thursday, January 23, 2014, at 2:00 p.m. PST. The access numbers are as follows:

Domestic callers dial +1 877-891-6979, passcode IGT
International callers dial +1 773-756-4700, passcode IGT

The conference call will also be broadcast live over the Internet. A link to the webcast is available at the IGT website: http://www.IGT.com/investors.  The call will be archived until Thursday, February 6, 2014 at http://www.IGT.com/investors, for those interested parties that are unable to participate during the live webcast.

A taped replay of the conference call will be available after the conference call. This replay will run through Thursday, February 6, 2014.  The access numbers are as follows:

We believe that certain non-GAAP financial measures, when presented in conjunction with comparable GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) measures, are useful because that information is an appropriate measure for evaluating our operating performance. Non-GAAP information is used to evaluate business performance and management's effectiveness. These measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures may not be calculated in the same manner by all companies and therefore may not be comparable.
