FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Gaming Partners International Reports Financial Results for the First Quarter of 2008
Las Vegas, Nevada, May 14, 2008 – Gaming Partners International Corporation (Nasdaq: GPIC), the leading
worldwide provider of casino currency and table gaming equipment, today announced financial results for the first
quarter of 2008.
For the first quarter of 2008, the Company reported revenues of $12.1 million compared to revenues of $8.9
million for the first quarter of 2007. Gross profit for the quarter was $3.8 million, or 31% of revenues, compared
to $1.6 million or 18% of revenues in the same period a year ago. The increase in revenues was due to increased
sales of gaming chips to casinos in Macau, which resulted in higher production and improved margins by
allocating fixed costs over the higher production.
Net loss for the first quarter was $412,000, or $0.05 per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $1.5
million or $0.18 per basic and diluted share in the first quarter of 2007.
As of March 31, 2008, the Company had cash and marketable securities of $11.2 million, compared to $9.4
million as of December 31, 2007.
As of March 31, 2008, our backlog of unfilled orders, which are expected to be filled in 2008, was $14.0
million. At March 31, 2007, our backlog was $12.7 million.
Commenting on the results, Gerard Charlier, President and CEO, said, “Our first quarter 2008 results are
significantly improved over last year’s results, but we posted a loss and our performance is not where we want it
to be. We will continue to pursue revenue opportunities but we are addressing our costs as well, such as moving
our Las Vegas-based chip manufacturing to our Mexico facility.”
