Strong Second Quarter for AGS

Blair joins AGS at a time when the company is set on expanding internationally. In its Q2 2023 report released earlier this month, AGS posted a record $89.8 million in revenue, a 17% year-on-year increase compared to $76.6 million in Q2 2022.

The company attributed part of this success to its EGM equipment sales in "29 US states, four Canadian provinces, and one international jurisdiction outside of North America throughout Q2 2023.

AGS also noted that it would "continue to successfully implement strategic initiatives intended to broaden our customer account penetration, particularly with larger corporate buyers."
