Progressive Gaming appoints interim CEO

(US).- Progressive Gaming International Corporation announced that its Board of Directors has appointed Terrance W. Oliver, a member of the firm's Board of Directors, as the company's Interim President and CEO, effective immediately. Oliver, who has been a director of the company since 1988, will replace Russel H. McMeekin, who is stepping down to pursue other opportunities.

O

liver has been a director of the company since 1988, and served as Chairman of the Board of Directors from 1988 to September 1993. He served in various executive capacities at nine casino properties from 1973 to 1996, when he retired as COO of Fitzgeralds Gaming Corporation. He currently serves on the board of managers of Peninsula Gaming Partners, which operates the Diamond Jo Casino in Dubuque, Iowa, and the Evangeline Downs Racino in Opelousas, Louisiana.

The company also said that it would fall short of its previously projected 2008 financial guidance for revenues, slot and table management systems installed base, adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and gross margins.

Oliver, Interim President and CEO, said: "Based on current information, and in large part due to the broader economic issues in the United States, it is clear that our financial results for fiscal year 2008 will fall short of our publicly announced guidance. The continuing turmoil in the financial markets and the impact of recent market conditions on the gaming industry in particular, including many of our customers, has resulted in a difficult operating environment for our company.”

“In response to the market conditions, we are aggressively addressing various cost-cutting measures to improve overall financial performance. We expect to begin implementing these measures before the end of the 2008 third quarter period. Our goal is to reduce expenses by an amount sufficient to permit us to generate cash-flows in the near-term. We will continue to keep our stakeholders informed as these cost-cutting initiatives are implemented," he concluded.
