Ontario-based INNOVA Gaming Group, one of the leading Canadian developers, recognized for its LT-3 lottery vending machines, announced the official financial results for Q4 of 2016, as well as for the whole year.

Better Than 2015

The company can be pleased with the previous year since it recorded an increase in revenue. INNOVA earned $22.7 million, a million and a half more than in 2015.

Regarding the last quarter of the previous year, there was a slight increase of $500,000. A humble result, but it could have been much worse if it hadn’t been for the company’s main product. 185 new LT-3 machines were installed during 2016, while 94 were removed, for a total of 2,062 units available.

New Deals

Last July, INNOVA signed a support agreement with Amaya, according to which the Quebec gaming company would pay an amount equal to the shortfall between the company’s EBITDA directly or indirectly derived from INNOVA’s subsidiaries Diamond Game and Blue Stone.

Amaya, who owns 40,45% shares of INNOVA, will pay the company each year, up to 5 years from July 1, 2015.

The beginning of this month was marked by Pollard Banknote Limited’s proposal to buy INNOVA shares at a cost of $2.10 per share. The Pollard’s proposal was backed up by Amaya, but the final outcome will be known after a special committee analyzes the financial aspect of the proposal as well as its possibilities for the company itself.
