Everi Holdings Inc. EVRI is scheduled to report first-quarter 2020 results on Jun 2, after the bell.
Shares of the company have declined a massive 54%, year to date, compared with the 28.6% decline of the industry it belongs to.
Results to Reflect Adverse Impact of the Pandemic
Everi’s financial performance started getting adversely impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, mainly in the third month of the first quarter as the gaming industry came to a complete shutdown across North America.
Post the closure of facilities, the company’s revenues and earnings came down to near zero, with limited visibility about when the industry will reopen. The massively-hit and highly uncertain business environment made forecasting difficult and therefore, Everi withdrew its 2020 guidance.
Estimates Indicate Year-over-Year Top- and Bottom-Line Declines
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues in the to-be-reported quarter is pegged at $123.5 million, indicating a year-over-year decline of 0.2%. In fourth-quarter 2019, revenues of $145.2 million increased 21.5% year over year.
The consensus estimate for Everi’s bottom line is pegged at a loss of 3 cents for the to-be-reported quarter, suggesting a significant decline from the earnings of 8 cents recorded in the year-ago quarter. In fourth-quarter 2019, earnings of 2 cents per share increased from the loss of 4 cents per share incurred a year ago.
Everi currently carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank stocks here.
