Poydras Gaming Finance Corp. Announces Completion of Share Consolidation and Fourth Quarter/Year-end Earnings Conference Call

VANCOUVER, April 20, 2016 /CNW/ - POYDRAS GAMING FINANCE CORP. (TSX-V: PYD) ("Poydras" or the "Company") announces that it has received TSX Venture Exchange approval for the consolidation of the Company's issued and outstanding common shares ("Common Shares") on the basis of one new Common Share for every ten Common Shares presently issued and outstanding.  Poydras' Common Shares are expected to begin trading on a consolidated basis on the TSX Venture Exchange on Monday, May 2, 2016.

"Given Poydras' strong financial and operating performance, the Board and management decided that reducing the share count to a more manageable level is an important step in raising our profile in the investment community," said Peter Macy, CEO of Poydras. "It is expected that consolidation will make the shares more attractive to a broader range of investors and potentially increase liquidity." 

As announced in the Company's news release dated March 17, 2016, Poydras achieved record Revenue and adjusted EBITDA in FY 2015 with strong quarter over quarter and year over year growth, and is expecting FY 2016 adjusted EBITDA to approach US$10.0 million from its current installed base of approximately 2,400 machines, with further upside potential as the Company places additional machines.  The Company's installed base has grown 700%+ over the prior year period, post the successful integration of the Integrity Companies.    

A new CUSIP number of 73938Y208 replaces the Company's old CUSIP number of 73938Y to distinguish between the pre and post-consolidated Common Shares. Poydras' name and trading symbol will remain unchanged.  Following the completion of the Common Share consolidation, the Company will have approximately 34,548,926 Common Shares issued and outstanding.

Letters of transmittal describing the details of the share consolidation and the process by which shareholders obtain actual share certificates representing the consolidated common shares will be mailed out to Poydras' registered shareholders on April 29, 2016. Registered shareholders may also obtain copies of the letter of transmittal by contacting their brokers or other intermediary, or Poydras' transfer agent, Computershare Investor Services Inc.


The Company will hold a conference call to discuss the results for its fourth quarter and year-end ended December 31, 2015. The call will be hosted by Peter Macy, CEO, and Adam Kniec, CFO on Monday, May 2, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. PDT (2:00 p.m. EDT), and followed by a question and answer period.  All interested parties are invited to participate. 

The Company will report its financial results for the fourth quarter and year-end on or before April 29, 2016.
