Figures are for Isle of Capri Casinos, Inc. (“Isle”) for the four months ended April 30, 2017, the day before ERI acquired Isle on May 1, 2017. ERI reports its financial results on a calendar fiscal year. Prior to the Company’s acquisition of Isle, Isle's fiscal year typically ended on the last Sunday in April. Isle's fiscal 2017 and 2016 were 52-week years, which commenced on April 25, 2016 and April 27, 2015, respectively. Such figures were prepared by the Company to reflect Isle’s unaudited consolidated historical net revenues, operating income and Adjusted EBITDA for periods corresponding to ERI's fiscal quarterly calendar. Such figures are based on the unaudited internal financial statements and have not been reviewed by the Company's auditors and do not conform to GAAP.

(2)

Total figures for 2016 and 2017 include combined results of operations for Isle and ERI for periods preceding the date that ERI acquired Isle. Such presentation does not conform with GAAP or the Securities and Exchange Commission rules for pro forma presentation; however, we believe that the additional financial information will be helpful to investors in comparing current results with results of prior periods. This is non-GAAP data and should not be considered a substitute for data prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should be viewed in addition to the results of operations reported by the Company.

(3)

Figures are for Isle for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016. Such figures were prepared by the Company to reflect Isles' unaudited consolidated historical net revenues, operating income and Adjusted EBITDA for periods corresponding to ERI's fiscal quarterly calendar. Such figures are based on the unaudited internal financial statements and have not been reviewed by the Company's auditors and do not conform to GAAP.

(4)

Adjusted EBITDA is not a GAAP measurement and is presented solely as a supplemental disclosure because the Company believes it is a widely used measure of operating performance in the gaming industry. See “Reconciliation of GAAP Measures to Non-GAAP Measures” below for a definition of Adjusted EBITDA and a quantitative reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to operating income (loss), which the Company believes is the most comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP.

 

“Eldorado’s record third quarter results exhibit the potential that we envisioned when we announced the acquisition of Isle of Capri a little over a year ago. Third quarter Adjusted EBITDA rose 16.2% year over year to $112.1 million despite a 1% net revenue decline that was partially attributable to the impact of two separate hurricanes,” said Gary Carano, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Eldorado. “Our growth continues to be broad-based across the portfolio as Adjusted EBITDA improved at 12 of our 19 properties. As a result, our third quarter property Adjusted EBITDA margin increased 300 basis points year over year to 26.6% while our consolidated Adjusted EBITDA margin rose 370 basis points to 25.2%.

“Our implementation of best practice operating strategies across the portfolio continued to drive margin expansion as we continue to identify additional refinements to our marketing and promotional spend and streamline our food and beverage operations, while also reducing corporate expense, which declined over 30% compared to last year. We also continue to make significant progress on our synergy plan following our acquisition of Isle of Capri earlier this year as we achieved our target of $35 million of annual synergies within four months of closing the transaction.

“Eldorado has established a track record of success in growing operations through acquisitions by identifying and executing synergy opportunities, implementing our proven operating model focused on providing best-in-class guest service and market-leading amenities and investing in return-focused amenity upgrades, where appropriate, to grow property results. Work completed to date on our $50 million Reno Tri-Properties improvement program includes upgrades to approximately 600 rooms at Circus Circus and 153 rooms at Eldorado Reno, a new Starbucks café added at Eldorado Reno in the third quarter, a new poker room and Canter’s Deli at Silver Legacy and a range of amenity upgrades at Circus Circus including a variety of new food and beverage offerings. These facility enhancements have created a more integrated experience across the Reno Tri-Properties while offering unique guest experiences at each property, which is helping drive higher gaming revenue and increases in room rate and occupancy, all of which contributed to the more than 34% Adjusted EBITDA growth in our West region in the third quarter.

“We believe that we are well positioned for further growth as we benefit from scale that can mitigate property-specific challenges, our continued successful integration of the Isle of Capri properties, additional opportunities to realize synergies, and higher guest satisfaction and improved traffic at our properties following return-focused facility upgrades. We operate in a number of markets that are growing and we are applying operational discipline in our efforts to drive EBITDA even in low or no growth markets.”

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

At September 30, 2017, Eldorado had $134.9 million in cash and cash equivalents and $21.3 million in restricted cash. In September, the Company completed a $500 million add-on offering to its outstanding 6% senior notes due 2025, the proceeds of which were used to repay all of the outstanding borrowings under its revolving credit facility and to repay a portion of the outstanding borrowings under the Company’s term loan facility and related accrued interest. As a result, outstanding indebtedness at September 30, 2017 totaled $2.3 billion, with no amounts outstanding on the Company’s revolving credit facility. Capital expenditures in the third quarter and first nine months of 2017 totaled $23.4 million and $53.2 million, respectively. The Company expects 2017 full-year capital expenditures of approximately $80 million, with $27 million allocated to project cap-ex and the remaining $53 million for maintenance cap-ex.

“We continue to focus on extracting synergies following the May acquisition of Isle of Capri, and we achieved our target of $35 million in annual synergies in only four months,” said Tom Reeg, President and Chief Financial Officer. “Our expanded scale and success in expanding property-level margins is resulting in significant EBITDA growth which, combined with lower interest expense and modest capital expenditures, is driving higher free cash flow, allowing us to continue to reduce leverage while providing us the financial flexibility and capacity to seek additional acquisition opportunities.”

On August 22, 2016, Isle entered into an agreement to sell Lake Charles for aggregate consideration of $134.5 million, subject to certain adjustments. The transaction remains subject to Louisiana Gaming Control Board approval and other customary closing conditions and, if obtained, the transaction is expected to be completed by December 31, 2017. The Company intends to allocate all of the net proceeds from the sale to debt reduction. The operations of Lake Charles have been classified as discontinued operations and as assets held for sale for all periods presented.

Summary of 2017 Third Quarter Region Results

Reflecting the completion on May 1 of the Company’s acquisition of Isle of Capri, Eldorado reports results in four regions. The reporting format is consistent with changes the Company has made in its management reporting structure.

West Region (Reno Tri-Properties, Isle Casino Hotel Black Hawk and Lady Luck Casino Black Hawk)

Net revenue for the West Region properties for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 increased approximately 7.9% to $132.8 million compared to $123.0 million in the prior-year period, while operating income rose to $32.6 million from $22.8 million in the year-ago quarter. Adjusted EBITDA increased 34.5% to $40.4 million reflecting an Adjusted EBITDA margin of 30.4% compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $30.0 million on an Adjusted EBITDA margin of 24.4% in the prior-year period. Adjusted EBITDA increased year over year at the Reno Tri-Properties and at both Isle Black Hawk and Lady Luck Black Hawk with the combined Adjusted EBITDA margin for the Black Hawk properties exceeding 30% in the third quarter of 2017.

Midwest Region (Isle Casino Waterloo, Isle Casino Bettendorf, Isle of Capri Casino Boonville, Isle Casino Cape Girardeau, Lady Luck Casino Caruthersville and Isle of Capri Casino Kansas City)

Net revenue for the Midwest Region properties for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 decreased approximately 2.6% to $103.5 million compared to $106.3 million in the prior-year period, while operating income rose to $24.3 million from $22.5 million in the year-ago quarter. Adjusted EBITDA rose approximately 2.4% to $32.4 million as the Adjusted EBITDA margin for the segment rose 150 basis points to 31.3%. Adjusted EBITDA increased year over year at four of the six Midwest Region properties and was essentially flat at one property. Adjusted EBITDA for the Midwest Region in the prior-year period was $31.7 million reflecting an Adjusted EBITDA margin of 29.8%.

South Region (Isle Casino Racing Pompano Park, Eldorado Shreveport, Isle of Capri Casino Lula and Lady Luck Casino Vicksburg)

Net revenue for the South Region properties for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 declined approximately 11.6% to $81.7 million compared to $92.4 million in the prior-year period, inclusive of an impact of approximately $2.1 million related to Hurricane Irma. Operating income of $11.3 million compared to $14.1 million in the year-ago quarter and Adjusted EBITDA declined 13.5% to $17.6 million compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $20.3 million in the prior-year period. Hurricane Irma impacted the South region properties’ Adjusted EBITDA by approximately $1.5 million and historically low table hold and Hurricane Harvey impacted Adjusted EBITDA at Eldorado Shreveport. As a result, Adjusted EBITDA margin for the region declined 50 basis points to 21.5%.

East Region (Presque Isle Downs and Casino, Lady Luck Casino Nemacolin, Eldorado Scioto Downs Racino and Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack and Resort)

Net revenue for the East Region properties for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 declined approximately 0.7% to $126.7 million compared to $127.7 million in the prior-year period, while operating income grew to $21.1 million from $14.2 million in the year-ago quarter. Despite the modest revenue decline, Adjusted EBITDA for the East Region rose 16.7% to $27.9 million compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $23.9 million in the prior-year period as the East region’s Adjusted EBITDA margin improved 330 basis points to 22.0%. All four of the East region’s properties delivered double digit year-over-year Adjusted EBITDA growth, including the eleventh consecutive quarter of Adjusted EBITDA growth for Eldorado Scioto Downs and the third consecutive quarter of double digit growth at Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort which continues to benefit from the Company’s initiatives to improve amenities and right-size operating expenses to match current visitation and revenue volumes.

Reconciliation of GAAP Measures to Non-GAAP Measures

Adjusted EBITDA (defined below), a non GAAP financial measure, has been presented as a supplemental disclosure because it is a widely used measure of performance and basis for valuation of companies in our industry and we believe that this non GAAP supplemental information will be helpful in understanding the Company’s ongoing operating results. Adjusted EBITDA represents operating income (loss) before depreciation and amortization, stock based compensation, transaction expenses, S-1 expenses, severance expenses and other, which includes equity in income (loss) of unconsolidated affiliates, (gain) loss on the sale or disposal of property, and other regulatory gaming assessments, including the impact of the change in regulatory reporting requirements, to the extent that such items existed in the periods presented. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of performance or liquidity calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP, is unaudited and should not be considered an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income (loss) as an indicator of our operating performance. Uses of cash flows that are not reflected in Adjusted EBITDA include capital expenditures, interest payments, income taxes, debt principal repayments and certain regulatory gaming assessments, which can be significant. As a result, Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as a measure of our liquidity. Other companies that provide EBITDA information may calculate EBITDA differently than we do. The definition of Adjusted EBITDA may not be the same as the definitions used in any of our debt agreements.

Eldorado will host a conference call at 4:30 p.m. ET today. Senior management will discuss the financial results and host a question and answer session.

Figures for Isle are the four months ended April 30, 2017, the day before the Company acquired Isle on May 1, 2017. The Company reports its financial results on a calendar fiscal year. Prior to the Company’s acquisition of Isle, Isle’s fiscal year typically ended on the last Sunday in April. Isle’s fiscal 2017 and 2016 were 52-week years, which commenced on April 25, 2016 and April 27, 2015, respectively. Such figures were prepared by the Company to reflect Isle’s unaudited consolidated historical net revenues and Adjusted EBITDA for periods corresponding to the Company’s fiscal quarterly calendar. Such figures are based on the unaudited internal financial statements and have not been reviewed by the Company’s auditors and do not conform to GAAP.

(2)

Total figures for 2016 and 2017 include combined results of operations for Isle and the Company for periods preceding the date that the Company acquired Isle. Such presentation does not conform with GAAP or the Securities and Exchange Commission rules for proforma presentation; however, we believe that the additional financial information will be helpful to investors in comparing current results with results of prior periods. This is non-GAAP data and should not be considered a substitute for data prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should be viewed in addition to the results of operations reported by the Company.

(3)

Figures are for Isle for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016. Such figures were prepared by the Company to reflect Isle’s unaudited consolidated historical net revenues, operating income and Adjusted EBITDA for periods corresponding to the Company’s fiscal quarterly calendar. Such figures are based on the unaudited internal financial statements and have not been reviewed by the Company’s auditors and do not conform to GAAP.

Effective January 1, 2016, the Ohio Lottery Commission enacted a regulatory change which resulted in the establishment of a $1.0 million progressive slot liability and a corresponding decrease in net slot win during the first quarter of 2016. The changes are non-cash and related primarily to prior years. The net non-cash impact to Adjusted EBITDA was $0.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016.

(5)

Transaction expenses for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 represent acquisition costs related to the Isle Acquisition. Transaction expenses for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 represent acquisition costs related to the Reno Acquisition and includes a credit of $2.0 thousand related to S-1 offering costs.
