Matthews, IGT's Chief Executive Officer, said 'We saw strong operating cash flows during the quarter at IGT. Our results demonstrate that despite a slowdown in domestic machine demand, we continue to execute on our strategy to grow the profitability of our international business and our efforts to expand the contribution from non-machine product sales. Further, IGT's strong financial position and pipeline of highly anticipated new MegaJackpots(R) products to be rolled out later this year should further enhance our strong cash flows.'
