Bally Technologies reported income of $24.4 million for the fiscal second quarter of 2008, compared with a loss of $2.5 million in the same period last year. The gaming equipment maker also revealed a revenue rise of 53 percent for the period, to $230.7 million while adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation for the quarter were $63.9 million.
The company attributed its second-quarter results to improved margins and cost leverage.
