Figures are for Grand Victoria Casino (“GV”) for the period beginning July 1, 2018 and ending August 6, 2018 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and the period beginning January 1, 2018 and ending August 6, 2018 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018.

(2)

Total figures for 2018 include combined results of operations for ERI and GV and total figures for 2017 include combined results of operations for ERI, GV and Isle of Capri Casino (“Isle”) for periods preceding the date that ERI acquired GV and Isle, as applicable. 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 the operations reported by the Company.

(3)

Figures are for GV for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 and for Isle for four months ended April 30, 2017. In the case of Isle, 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 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.


“The 2018 third quarter was another impressive period of growth for Eldorado Resorts as Adjusted EBITDA rose at 17 of our 21 properties, inclusive of the Grand Victoria Casino which was acquired in August. As a result, all five of our property segments generated year over year Adjusted EBITDA growth, including double-digit growth for our South, East and Central segments,” said Gary Carano, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Eldorado. “In addition, the third quarter Adjusted EBITDA margin rose at all five of our reporting segments with the increases ranging between 200 and 690 basis points as we continue to apply operational discipline focused on delivering profitable revenue and driving strong EBITDA gains. Third quarter consolidated Adjusted EBITDA rose 12.6% on a year over year basis on top of the strong 16.2% growth achieved in prior year period, our property-level Adjusted EBITDA margin improved 370 basis points to 28.7% and our consolidated Adjusted EBITDA margin rose 360 basis points to 27.4%.

“We completed the acquisition of Grand Victoria Casino, one of the premier casinos in the Chicagoland market, in August and completed the acquisition of Tropicana Entertainment in early October. These acquisitions have significantly expanded the scale of our gaming operations and diversified our geographic reach into seven new markets that have minimal overlap with our existing operations. The addition of these eight properties to our operations and our focus on disciplined marketing, promotions, advertising, and food and beverage and labor expense management are expected to drive growth in free cash flow, positioning us to reduce leverage while evaluating additional uses of free cash flow, including potential continued growth through acquisitions and the return of capital to shareholders.

“In early September we entered into a landmark agreement to partner with William Hill to address in-casino, mobile and online sports wagering opportunities where allowed in our current markets and as enabling legislation is enacted in the eight other markets where we will operate. In addition to the equity interest in our partner’s U.S. and global operations that will be issued to us following receipt of required regulatory approvals, sports wagering is expected to result in increased visitation and a new revenue source at our properties where we offer it, which we anticipate will also drive growth in our gaming and non-gaming operations. We opened a temporary sportsbook in Atlantic City’s Tropicana Casino and Resort on October 25 and expect to open our sportsbook at Mountaineer Casino Racetrack and Resort in Chester, West Virginia later this month.

“We are excited about our future as we continue to integrate our newly acquired properties, focus on initiatives that are expected to deliver margin improvement from our operations, invest in facility enhancements that are anticipated to deliver attractive returns, and position ourselves to benefit from developing sports wagering opportunity in the U.S.”

Adjusted EBITDA for the Central Region rose 33.7% to $9.8 million compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $7.3 million in the prior-year period as the Central Region’s Adjusted EBITDA margin improved 690 basis points to 24.1%.

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. Management has historically used Adjusted EBITDA when evaluating operating performance because we believe that the inclusion or exclusion of certain recurring and non-recurring items is necessary to provide a full understanding of our core operating results and as a means to evaluate period-to-period results. Adjusted EBITDA represents operating income (loss) before depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, transaction expenses, severance expense, costs associated with the Presque Isle Downs, Vicksburg, Lake Charles and Nemacolin sales, income related to the termination of the Vicksburg sale, impairment charges, equity in income (loss) of unconsolidated affiliates, (gain) loss on the sale or disposal of property and equipment, and other non-cash regulatory gaming assessments. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of performance or liquidity calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“US 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.
