DUBLIN, IRELAND -- (Marketwire) -- 11/10/11 -- CryptoLogic Limited (TSX:CRY)(TSX:CXY)(NASDAQ:CRYP)(LSE:CRP), a developer of branded online betting games and Internet casino software, announces its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2011.

Q3 2011 Highlights:

-- Total revenue increased to $7.2 million (Q2 2011: $7.0 million) -- Total expenses reduced to $5.9 million (Q2 2011: $6.5 million) -- Income before tax increased to $1.3 million (Q2 2011: $0.5 million) -- Cash increased to $15.2 million (Q2 2011: $12.0 million)

The Board is encouraged by the performance in the quarter and continues to focus on increasing revenues while managing costs tightly to enhance shareholder value.


Operating and Financial Review

Total revenue after amortization of royalties and games in Q3 2011 increased to $7.2 million (Q2 2011: $7.0 million). Q3 2011 included $0.9 million as a result of a reanalysis of jackpot provisions; Q2 2011 included $0.8 million as a result of a reduction in liabilities previously provided against revenue following the resolution of a dispute with a significant supplier of games.

Hosted Casino

Revenue from Hosted Casino increased to $6.5 million in Q3 2011, including $0.9 million related to the above jackpot provisions (Q2 2011: $5.7 million, including $0.3 million related to the above dispute resolution), reflecting a higher contribution from a key licensee.

Branded Games

Revenue from this segment decreased to $1.4 million in Q3 2011 (Q2 2011: $2.1 million, including $0.5 million related to the above dispute resolution). Three new branded games went live in the quarter taking the total number of games rolled out by licensees and generating revenues to date to 188 from 185 at the end of the second quarter.

Poker and Other

Poker and Other revenue amounted to $0.3 million in Q3 2011 (Q2 2011: $0.2 million).

Expenses

Operating expenses decreased to $4.1 million in Q3 2011 (Q2 2011: $4.5 million).

General and administrative expenses decreased to $1.5 million in Q3 2011 (Q2 2011: $1.6 million).

Income before tax for the quarter amounted to $1.3 million, including $0.9 million related to the above jackpot provisions, compared with $0.5 million in the second quarter, including $0.8 million related to the above dispute resolution.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

Cash and cash equivalents as at September 30, 2011 amounted to $15.2 million (June 30, 2011: $12.0 million). The increase in cash during Q3 2011 of $3.2 million is primarily due to net cash flows from operating activities. The Company continues to be debt-free.

Update on Commercial Agreements

Further to the announcement on May 12, 2011, the Company remains in dispute with a brand licensor. In June 2011, the Company filed suit against the brand licensor seeking judgment that any breach was cured and the agreement remains in force. In October 2011, the brand licensor answered the complaint, denying any cure and filed a countersuit.

Strategic Review

On March 25, 2011, the Company announced that it had appointed Deloitte Corporate Finance as financial advisor to assist it with a strategic review of the Company. The strategic review is ongoing and further announcements will be made as and when appropriate.
