Ainsworth warns on sales

Despite now forecasting a 2% fall in revenue, Ainsworth expects 2015 profit to be similar to 2014.

Ainsworth Game Technology has warned that 2015 revenue is likely to fall by around 2%, as opposed to previous guidance for it to increase (see Ainsworth: Interim result 2015 on 2 Mar 15 (Buy — $2.49). Net profit, however, is expected to be ‘similar’ to the $62m reported in 2014 assuming no adverse movements in foreign exchange rates.

The reason for the revenue decline is continued poor sales in the Australian market, which is not surprising given main competitor Aristocrat continues to perform well here (see Aristocrat: Interim result 2015 on 28 May 15 (Hold — $8.08).
