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

Chicago, Illinois - November 14, 2016 --- AG&E Holdings Inc. (NYSE MKT: WGA), a parts distributor to the casino and gaming markets, announced financial results today for the third  quarter of 2016, ended September 30, 2016.

AG&E Holdings' revenue for the third quarter of 2016 totaled $1.3 million compared to $2.2 million in the third quarter of 2015. The decline was due to lower distribution parts sales in three product lines for the quarter compared to a year ago. Loss from continuing operations for the quarter was $(585,000) compared to a loss from continuing operations of $(334,000) in the third quarter of 2015.

Financial results for the quarter were also impacted by transaction costs associated with the proposed merger AG&E Holdings and Advanced Gaming Associates, LLC; higher temporary staff costs and costs related to the expiration of the McCook, Illinois facility lease. Those expenses accounted for more than two thirds of the impact, with distribution parts sales results accounting for the remainder.

For the third quarter ended September 30, 2016, the Company reported a net loss of $(585,000), or $(0.05) per diluted share, compared to net loss of $(334,000), or $(0.03) per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2015.
