Pollard Banknote Limited Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2014; Provides Capital Expenditure Guidance for the Fourth Quarter of 2014

Pollard Banknote Limited reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported sales of $53.5 million against $48.1 million. Income from operations was $5.1 million against $3.9 million. Income before income taxes was $3.1 million against $3.5 million a year ago. Net income was $1.7 million against $2.6 million a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA was $7.3 million against $6.3 million. The primary reasons for the increase in Adjusted EBITDA of $1.0 million were the increase in gross profit of $2.0 million, excluding non-recurring iLottery start-up costs, partially offset by increased administration expenses of $0.4 million and the increase in the realized foreign exchange losses of $0.8 million. The primary reasons for the $0.9 million decrease in net income were, increased foreign exchange loss of $1.4 million, an increase of $0.4 million in administration expenses, increased income taxes expense of $0.5 million and the increased mark-to-market loss on foreign currency contracts of $0.3 million. Partially offsetting these decreases was an increase in gross profit of $1.4 million, net of $0.6 million in non-recurring iLottery start-up costs. Net income per share (basic and diluted) decreased to $0.07 per share in the third quarter of 2014 from $0.11 in the third quarter of 2013. For the nine months, the company reported sales of $151.3 million against $137.4 million. Income from operations was $14.0 million against $10.0 million. Net income was $6.7 million against $4.6 million a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA was $20.0 million against $16.4 million. Income before income taxes was $10.4 million against $7.4 million a year ago. The primary reasons for the increase in Adjusted EBITDA of $3.6 million were the increase in gross profit of $5.9 million (excluding $0.6 million in non-recurring iLottery start-up costs), partially offset by increased administration expenses of $1.4 million and the increase in the realized foreign exchange losses of $1.0 million. The primary reasons for the increase in net income of $2.1 million were the increase in gross profit of $5.3 million and the decrease in interest expense of $0.4 million. Partially offsetting these increases were the increase in administration expenses of $1.4 million, an increase in foreign exchange losses of $1.3 million and the increase in income tax expense of $0.9 million. Net income per share (basic and diluted) increased to $0.28 per share in the nine months ended September 30, 2014, from $0.19 in the first nine months of 2013. For fiscal 2014 capital expenditures are expected to be significantly higher than in recent prior years due to the $20 million expansion plan regarding installation of a new press, moving press capacity from Ypsilanti to Winnipeg and various related expenditures, the timing of which will extend through to the end of 2015.

Pollard Banknote Limited Announces Flip ScratchTM and Eco ScratchTM

Pollard Banknote Limited announced Flip ScratchTM and Eco ScratchTM- two new instant products available exclusively from Pollard Banknote. Flip ScratchTM, a patented Fusion® product, provides a way for lotteries to add value to an instant game by combining pop-open windows with scratch-off games to virtually double the amount of available play! Flip ScratchTM consists of two layers of recyclable cardstock laminated together, adding layers of fun. Players snap open windows to reveal variable imaging on the back of each window and a scratch area that covers additional play symbols. The data on the back of the window may be an integral part of the game's play or can offer bonus opportunities. Flip ScratchTM accommodates many play styles, including slots and casino card games such as poker, blackjack, and high low. Pollard Banknote's new Eco ScratchTM tickets offer players another type of ‘green’ - a new eco-friendly way to play and win! Eco ScratchTM paper stock is made from 60% recycled fibers (35% post-consumer) and resembles brown sack paper -traditionally used for grocery bags, lunch bags, and butcher paper. Current trends that are driving the use of brown paper include an emphasis on sustainability and the move towards clean, simple design that stands out. Consumer packaged goods companies are leveraging this material to highlight environmentally friendly products or to give a product a handcrafted. While the organic, recycled feel of Eco ScratchTM lends itself to vintage designs, when combined with well-chosen fonts and colors, it is also perfect for striking modern designs.
