Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

 

The information contained under Item 2.02 in this Current Report on Form 8-K, including Exhibit 99.1, is being furnished and, as a result, such information shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall such information be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.

 

On May 10, 2021, Scientific Games Corporation (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing, among other things, results for the three months ended March 31, 2021. A copy of the press release that will be discussed on the Company’s earnings call is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

 

The Company’s press release, in addition to containing results that are determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”), contains certain “non-GAAP financial measures” as that term is defined by the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The Company’s press release includes the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, information reconciling the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, a statement disclosing the reasons why the Company’s management believes that presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information to investors regarding the Company’s financial condition and results of operations, and a statement disclosing the additional purposes for which the Company’s management uses the non-GAAP financial measures.

 

The non-GAAP financial measures used in the press release should not be considered in isolation of, as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures as defined in the press release may differ from similarly titled measures presented by other companies. The non-GAAP financial measures, as well as other information in the press release, should be read in conjunction with the Company’s financial statements filed with the SEC.
