HAMMONTON, N.J., June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- AG&E Holdings Inc. (OTCQB: AGNU), whose wholly-owned subsidiary, American Gaming & Electronics, Inc., is one of the largest supply companies in the gaming industry, announced that its first quarter revenue totalled $3.2 million, up 64 percent from revenue of $1.9 million in the first quarter of 2016.  The increase in revenue is primarily attributed to the acquisition of Advanced Gaming Associates LLC (AGA) in late 2016.  Gross margin for the quarter was $969,000 or 30.4% of sales compared to $471,000 or 24% of sales in the first quarter 2016.

For the first quarter 2017, the Company reported a net loss of $(435,000) or $(0.03) per share which included transaction related costs of $50,000 and intangible amortization associated with the acquisition of AGA of $54,000.  For the first quarter 2016, the Company reported a net loss of $(719,000) or $(0.06) per share which includes transaction related costs of $124,000.  This represents an increase in net income of $284,000 vs prior year quarter.

"We are pleased to announce that along with our revenue growth of 64% to $3.2 million, our gross margin was up 106 percent to $969,000 in the first quarter ended March 31, 2017 compared to the prior year," said Anthony Tomasello, CEO and President.  "Although we are showing a net loss of $435,000 for the first quarter, this is an improvement over 2016 of $284,000.  We believe that the strategic changes we've made since the acquisition, including updating our licenses, adding experienced sales representatives and reorganizing our sales territories are going to make all of the difference in turning the company around. I am also happy to say that we have now successfully completed relocating to three new facilities in Florida, Las Vegas and Illinois which will make the Company more responsive to our customers."
