Second Quarter 2017 and Subsequent Financial Highlights

  • Revenues - Total revenues for the quarter increased approximately 6.8% year-over-year. Excluding the impact of year-over-year changes in foreign exchange rates, total revenues for the quarter would have increased by approximately 7.9%. Real-money online poker revenues and real-money online casino and sportsbook combined revenues represented approximately 66.5% and 29.3% of total revenues for the quarter, respectively, as compared to approximately 75.5% and 20.9% for the prior year period.
  • Poker Revenues Real-money online poker revenues for the quarter were $202.9 million, or a decrease of approximately 5.9% year-over-year. Excluding the impact of year-over-year changes in foreign exchange rates, real-money online poker revenues would have decreased by approximately 5.6% for the quarter.
  • Casino & Sportsbook Revenues Real-money online casino and sportsbook combined revenues for the quarter were $89.6 million, or an increase of approximately 50.2% year-over-year. Excluding the impact of year-over-year changes in foreign exchange rates, real-money online casino and sportsbook combined revenues would have increased by approximately 54.3% for the quarter.
  • Debt Total long term debt outstanding at the end of the quarter was $2.55 billion with a weighted average interest rate of 4.7%. On August 8, The Stars Group prepaid without penalty approximately $40 million under its second lien term loan using cash flow from operations, which it expects to result in approximately $3 million in annual interest savings. Following this prepayment, the principal balance of the second lien term loan as of the date hereof is $170 million.
  • Deferred Purchase Price In May, The Stars Group made its final payment on the outstanding balance of the deferred purchase price for its acquisition of the Rational Group (now known as Stars Interactive) in August 2014, which included the remaining balance of $47.5 million and approximately $870,000 of associated fees. As previously announced, The Stars Group paid $200 million of the deferred purchase price in November 2016, $75 million in February 2017 and a further $75 million in April 2017.

Second Quarter 2017 and Subsequent Operational Highlights

  • Quarterly Real-Money Active Uniques (QAUs) As a result of management's continued review and assessment of certain key metrics and to provide a more accurate understanding of its customers, The Stars Group has adjusted the prior definition of QAUs as described below under "Key Metrics and Other Data" and has recalculated all historical QAUs accordingly. Based on this adjustment, total combined QAUs were approximately 2.1 million, a decrease of approximately 2% year-over-year primarily led by a decline on the Full Tilt platform, the new customer registration process in the Czech Republic and the cessation of operations in certain small jurisdictions, partially offset by the re-launch of PokerStars in Portugal in late 2016 and the growth and expansion of The Stars Group's real-money online casino and sportsbook offerings. Excluding the impact of Full Tilt, total combined QAUs would have increased approximately 1% year-over-year. Approximately 2.0 million of such QAUs played online poker during the quarter, a decrease of approximately 4% year-over-year or a decrease of approximately 1% excluding the impact of Full Tilt. The Stars Group's online casino offerings had approximately 547,000 QAUs, an increase of approximately 33% year-over-year, which The Stars Group continues to estimate is one of the largest casino player bases among its competitors, while its emerging online sportsbook offerings had approximately 251,000 QAUs, an 8% increase year-over-year.
  • Quarterly Net Yield (QNY) Total QNY was $137, an increase of 8.2% year-over-year, and QNY excluding the impact of year-over-year changes in foreign exchanges rates was $139, an increase of 9.4% year-over-year. QNY is a non-IFRS measure and was also recalculated for applicable historical periods as a result of the adjustment to QAUs noted above.
  • Customer Registrations Customer Registrations increased by 2.1 million during the quarter to approximately 113 million.
  • Launch of Stars Rewards In July, The Stars Group launched the Stars Rewards program, which is an integrated cross vertical loyalty program focused on customer engagement and experience. This program seeks to offer an exciting, personalized gaming experience that rewards players for their overall gameplay across poker, casino and sportsbook, in each case where available. The Stars Group believes that Stars Rewards will enhance the player experience as it introduces new ways of earning rewards that are intended to be more exciting for its recreational players and distributes such rewards based on player contributions to the overall ecosystem. To date, Stars Rewards has positively impacted the overall product ecosystem across verticals and has received positive feedback from most players.
  • Appointment of Executive Officers During the second quarter, The Stars Group announced the appointment of Brian Kyle as Chief Financial Officer, Jerry Bowskill as Chief Technology Officer, and Robin Chhabra as Chief Corporate Development Officer, effective September 2017. These appointments are the most recent additions to a strong management team that has been bolstered over the last year with the hiring of Bo Wänghammar as Managing Director of PokerStars Casino and Zeno Ossko as Managing Director of BetStars, and the promotion of Guy Templer as Chief Operating Officer of Stars Interactive (formerly, Rational Group).
  • Election of Directors At The Stars Group's 2017 annual and special meeting of shareholders in June, the shareholders elected two new directors, Peter E. Murphy and Mary Turner, and re-elected Divyesh (Dave) Gadhia, Harlan Goodson, Alfred F. Hurley, Jr. and David Lazzarato. Following the meeting, Mr. Gadhia was re-appointed as Chairman of the Board.
  • Corporate Name Change and Continuance - On August 1, 2017, The Stars Group completed its previously announced corporate name change, continuance under the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) such that it is now an Ontario corporation, and corporate head office move to Toronto. On the same date, The Stars Group's common shares began trading under the ticker symbol "TSG" on the Nasdaq Global Select Market and "TSGI" on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

Full Year Guidance

  • Full Year Guidance The Stars Group revised certain of its previously announced 2017 full year financial guidance ranges and currently expects the following:

    • Revenues of $1,200 to $1,260 million remains unchanged, with revenues currently expected to fall at the upper end of the range;
    • Adjusted EBITDA of $560 to $580 million remains unchanged;
    • Adjusted Net Earnings of $400 to $430 million is revised upward to $413 to $437 million; and
    • Adjusted Net Earnings per Diluted Share of $1.94 to $2.13 is revised upward to $2.01 to $2.15.

These estimates reflect management's view of current and future market and business conditions, including assumptions of  (i) anticipated negative operating conditions in Poland primarily related to constraints on processing payments in that jurisdiction, the cessation of real-money online poker in Australia by mid-September 2017 (previously believed to be the end of June 2017), and the cessation of real-money online gaming in Colombia, (ii) the introduction of  Stars Rewards, The Stars Group's previously disclosed cross-vertical customer loyalty program, (iii) no other material adverse regulatory events and (iv) no material foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations, particularly against the Euro which is the primary depositing currency of The Stars Group's customers, that could impact customer purchasing power as it relates to The Stars Group's U.S. dollar denominated product offerings. Such guidance is also now based on a Euro to U.S. dollar exchange rate of 1.12 to 1.00 for the second half of 2017, unaudited expected results and certain accounting assumptions.

The Stars Group has not provided a reconciliation of the non-IFRS measures to the nearest IFRS measures included in its full year 2017 financial guidance provided in this release, including Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Earnings and Adjusted Net Earnings per Diluted Share, because certain reconciling items necessary to accurately project such IFRS measures, particularly net earnings (loss), cannot be reasonably projected due to a number of factors, including variability from potential foreign exchange fluctuations impacting financial expenses, and the nature of other non-recurring or one-time costs (which are excluded from non-IFRS measures but included in net earnings (loss)), as well as the typical variability arising from the audit of annual financial statements, including, without limitation, certain income tax provision accounting, and related accounting matters.

For additional information on The Stars Group's non-IFRS measures, see below and the Q2 2017 MD&A, including under the headings "Management's Discussion and Analysis" and "Selected Financial Information?Other Financial Information".

Non-IFRS and Non-U.S. GAAP Measures

This news release references non-IFRS and non-U.S. GAAP financial measures, including QNY, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Cash Flow from Operations, Adjusted Net Earnings, Adjusted Net Earnings per Diluted Share, and the foreign exchange impact on revenues (i.e., constant currency). The Stars Group believes these non-IFRS and non-U.S. GAAP financial measures will provide investors with useful supplemental information about the financial performance of its business, enable comparison of financial results between periods where certain items may vary independent of business performance, and allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in operating its business.  Although management believes these financial measures are important in evaluating The Stars Group, they are not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, financial information prepared and presented in accordance with IFRS or U.S. GAAP. They are not recognized measures under IFRS or U.S. GAAP and do not have standardized meanings prescribed by IFRS or U.S. GAAP. These measures may be different from non-IFRS and non-U.S. GAAP financial measures used by other companies, limiting its usefulness for comparison purposes. Moreover, presentation of certain of these measures is provided for year-over-year comparison purposes, and investors should be cautioned that the effect of the adjustments thereto provided herein have an actual effect on The Stars Group's operating results. In addition to QNY, which is defined below under "Key Metrics and Other Data", The Stars Group uses the following non-IFRS and non-U.S. GAAP measures in this release:

Adjusted EBITDA means net earnings (loss) before interest and financing costs, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, restructuring and certain other items.

Adjusted Cash Flow from Operations means net cash inflows from operating activities net of customer deposit liability movements.

Adjusted Net Earnings means net earnings (loss) before interest accretion, amortization of intangible assets resulting from purchase price allocation following acquisitions, deferred income taxes, stock-based compensation, restructuring, foreign exchange, and certain other items. Adjusted Net Earnings per Diluted Share means Adjusted Net Earnings divided by Diluted Shares. Diluted Shares means the weighted average number of common shares on a fully diluted basis, including options, other equity-based awards, warrants and convertible preferred shares. The effects of anti-dilutive potential common shares are ignored in calculating Diluted Shares. See note 5 to the Q2 2017 Financial Statements.  For the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, Diluted Shares equaled 203,467,303 and 201,969,186, respectively. For the purposes of the full year 2017 financial guidance provided in this release, Diluted Shares now equals between 203,000,000 and 205,000,000 for the high and low ends of the Adjusted Net Earnings per Diluted Share range, respectively.

To calculate revenue on a constant currency basis, The Stars Group translated revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2017 using the prior year's monthly exchange rates for its local currencies other than the U.S. dollar, which The Stars Group believes is a useful metric that facilitates comparison to its historical performance.

For additional information on The Stars Group's non-IFRS measures, see the Q2 2017 MD&A, including under the headings "Management's Discussion and Analysis" and "Selected Financial Information?Other Financial Information".

Key Metrics and Other Data

As disclosed in the Q2 2017 MD&A under the heading "Key Metrics", following continued review and assessment of its key metrics, management has determined that the prior definition of QAUs required further adjustment to remove those customers who were active during the applicable quarterly period by taking advantage of certain customer acquisition promotional incentives, but had not yet made a deposit or transferred funds into their real-money accounts with The Stars Group for further gameplay, and to clarify the inclusions in and exclusions from the definition, particularly relating to free play, bonuses and promotions. As a result, The Stars Group now defines QAUs as active unique customers (online, mobile and desktop client) who (i) made a deposit or transferred funds into their real-money account with The Stars Group at any time, and (ii) generated real-money rake or placed a real-money bet or wager on or through one of its real-money online poker, casino or sportsbook offerings during the applicable quarterly period. The Stars Group defines unique as a customer who played at least once on one of its real-money offerings during the period, and excludes duplicate counting, even if that customer is active across multiple verticals (e.g., both poker and casino).  For further clarity, the definition of QAUs excludes customer activity from certain low-stakes, non-raked real-money poker games, but includes real-money activity by customers using funds (cash and cash equivalents) deposited by The Stars Group into such customers' previously funded accounts as promotions to increase their lifetime value.

The Stars Group continues to define QNY as combined real-money online gaming and related revenue (excluding certain other revenues, such as revenues from play-money offerings, live events and branded poker rooms) for its two business lines (i.e., real-money online poker and real-money online casino and sportsbook) as reported during the applicable quarterly period (or as adjusted to the extent any accounting reallocations are made in later periods) divided by the total QAUs during the same period. The Stars Group provides QNY on a U.S. dollar and constant currency basis. QNY is a non-IFRS measure.

QAUs and QNY (as QAUs serve as the denominator for QNY) for each applicable quarterly period since the fourth quarter of 2014 have been re-calculated as of the result of the adjustments noted above and are provided in the Q2 2017 MD&A under the heading "Key Metrics".

The Stars Group defines Customer Registrations as the cumulative number of online real-money and play-money customer registrations on The Stars Group's brands.
