“We maintained revenue growth in the 20% range in Q1 2018,” stated Todd Cravens, Galaxy’s President and CEO. “However, the increases in operating expenses that we made last year have moderated in Q1 2018, allowing us to deliver growth in EBITDA that exceeded the growth in revenue. We expect that trend to continue throughout 2018.”
“Revenue as reported for Q1 2018 included $207K from our adoption of ASC 606 effective beginning this year,” stated Harry Hagerty, Galaxy’s CFO. “Cash decreased slightly in the quarter due to our payment in January 2018 of amounts owed to a strategic partner; excluding that payment, cash would have increased 16%. Interest expense decreased in the quarter due to lower debt balances, and we expect further decreases in 2018 as a result of the refinancing we announced last month. Finally, our effective tax rate was 21.2%, reflecting the new tax rates enacted late last year.”
