Online gambling software developer, Parlay Entertainment which is focused mainly on the online bingo market, has reported disappointing third quarter 2009 losses, with revenues declining to $800,000 compared to Q3,2008 when these were $2.5 million, generating a $600,000 loss (Q3,2008: net income of $600,000).
The quarter, which ended September 30,2009, was characterised by chief excutive Scott White as one in which the company continued to make a significant investment in the establishment, development and organisation of its managed solutions offering in Alderney and Canada through Parlay Game Services.
"Parlay Game Services is now operational with the first brand launched in the quarter with a number of additional launches scheduled for Q4,2009 and Q1,2010. As we noted in our previous disclosures, it is Parlay's intention to aggressively expand our managed solutions offering to accommodate the addition of new customers and brands across multiple languages and currencies," said White.
White revealed that expenses in Q3,2009 were $1.5 million, down from $1.7 million in Q3,2008, representing reduced compensation expenses and lower foreign exchange losses together with the absence of certain non-recurring expenses from Q3,2008 offset by restructuring expenses in Q3,2009.
Looking at the nine months YTD performance, consolidated revenues were markedly down at $2.6 million for the first three quarters of 2009 compared to $7.3 million in the first three quarters of 2008.
YTD 2009 expenses were $4.3 million, down from $6.3 million in the first three quarters of 2008.
Net loss for the first three quarters of 2009 was $1.3 million, compared to a net income of $600,000, in the first three quarters of 2008.
Parlay remains debt free, with a cash balance at September 30, 2009 of $1.0 million.
