AG&E Holdings Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2016 Financial Results

Chicago, Illinois - August 4, 2016 --- AG&E Holdings Inc. (NYSE MKT: WGA), a parts distributor to the casino and gaming markets, announced financial results today for the second quarter of 2016, ended June 30, 2016.

AG&E Holdings' revenue for the second quarter of 2016 totaled $1.4 million compared to $5.4 million in the second quarter of 2015. The decline in revenue was impacted by the Company's exit from the VGT business in Illinois in the second quarter of 2015. Loss from continuing operations for the quarter was $(837,000) compared to earnings from continuing operations of $177,000 in the second quarter of 2015.

Financial results for the quarter were impacted by transaction costs associated with the negotiation of the proposed merger agreement of AG&E Holdings and Advanced Gaming Associates, LLC, and the expiration of the McCook, Illinois facility lease. Those expenses accounted for more than half of the impact, with other corporate overhead expenses accounting for almost all of the remaining impact.

For the second quarter ended June 30, 2016, the Company reported a net loss of $(837,000), or $(0.07) per diluted share, compared to net income of $191,000, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2015, which included earnings from discontinued operations of $14,000.
