(1)   Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA exclude the Silver Legacy, a joint venture between Eldorado and MGM Resorts.
(2)   The increase in Adjusted EBITDA for Eldorado Reno was attributable to the reallocation of corporate expenses to ERI Corporate in 2014
(3)   Adjusted EBITDA is not a generally accepted accounting principle (“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 net (loss) income, which we believe is the most comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP.
(4)   The combined basis reflects operations of MTR for periods prior to the merger combined with the operations of Eldorado Resorts, LLC. Such presentation does not conform with GAAP or the Securities and Exchange Commission rules for pro forma presentation; however, we have included the combined information because we believe it provides a meaningful comparison for the periods presented.
(5)   Operating income for the three months ended December 31, 2014 and 2013 include net charges of $0.6 million and $2.0 million, respectively, related to loss on sale or disposition of property and acquisition charges. Operating income for the twelve months ended December 31, 2014 and 2013 include net charges of $7.5 million and $3.4 million, respectively, related to loss on sale or disposition of property and acquisition charges.
(6)   Net (loss) income attributable to ERI and basic and diluted EPS for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2014 include the operating income charges noted in footnote 5 above as well as a net gain of $0.6 million related to the gain on termination of a SERP and loss on early termination of debt in an unconsolidated affiliate. Net (loss) income attributable to ERI and basic and diluted EPS for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 include the operating income charges noted in footnote 5 above as well as a gain on extinguishment of debt of $12.0 million related to an unconsolidated affiliate.

“The fourth quarter was a transitional period for Eldorado as we continue the integration of MTR and began implementing strategies to derive value from the newly expanded scale and geographic diversity of our property portfolio,” said Gary Carano, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Eldorado. “Notwithstanding the impact of new competition in certain markets, we are pleased with our progress to date. We believe 2015 operating results will highlight the benefits of the strategic rationale for the MTR merger which we completed in September 2014. Despite harsh and in some cases record cold weather in several of our markets, first quarter results to date have been solid.

“Our strategic priorities in 2015 are focused on three key areas. First, we are undertaking property enhancements that we believe will deliver attractive returns and drive long-term growth across Eldorado’s portfolio. These enhancements include new food and beverage offerings at several properties, refreshed offerings and amenities that we believe will strengthen our properties and their competitive positioning. We have also relocated certain members of Eldorado’s senior management team to be closer to our new MTR properties to implement our industry-leading player service and hospitality practices at these properties. We are also evaluating a range of customer loyalty programs and expect to finalize and begin implementation of a cost-effective, technology-driven single card solution in 2015.

“Second, we have identified several areas to improve property level adjusted EBITDA margins through operating and cost efficiencies and exercising financial discipline throughout the Company without impacting the player experience. Third, our current capital structure offers opportunities to allocate free cash flow from operations toward reducing leverage and lowering our weighted average cost of capital which, together, will lead to long-term free cash flow growth that supports our goal of enhancing shareholder value.”

Relocation of Senior Eldorado Resorts Management

Gregg Carano, who most recently served as Corporate Director of Food and Beverage at Eldorado Hotel Casino in Reno, Nevada and Eldorado Resort Casino in Shreveport, Louisiana, has relocated to Columbus with two executive chefs. Gregg Carano and his Reno and Shreveport teams significantly improved the quality and breadth of the respective properties’ food and beverage offerings as well as the guest service experience. The Company expects his relocation to Columbus to build upon the outstanding work being done by the Scioto Downs, Mountaineer Casino and Presque Isle Downs property management teams. The relocation reflects Eldorado’s commitment to extend the Carano family’s legacy of providing guests with diverse food and beverage options across the property portfolio as well as its strategy to instill its player-focused culture and philosophy of having senior team members serve as ambassadors to players on the casino floor.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

At December 31, 2014, Eldorado had $87.6 million in cash and cash equivalents, $5.7 million in restricted cash and contractual debt totaling $728.7 million. In the fourth quarter of 2014 MTR repurchased $10.0 million in aggregate principal amount of its 11.25% second lien notes, resulting in annual interest expense savings of $1.2 million.

Tom Reeg, President of Eldorado, added, “We entered 2015 focused on implementing a range of operating strategies aimed at growing revenue and Adjusted EBITDA contributions from our entire property portfolio. These initiatives include return-focused capital expenditures and facility upgrades totaling approximately $30 million in 2015. In addition, our 2015 capital allocation priorities also include leverage reduction and we intend to pursue capital structure modifications that, if successful, should reduce our annual interest expense. Finally, we plan to pursue other transactions with a goal of enhancing long-term shareholder value.”

Summary of 2014 Fourth Quarter and Full Year Property Results and Planned 2015 Enhancements

Nevada

Net revenues of $24.4 million at Eldorado Reno for the quarter ended December 31, 2014 were flat compared to the prior year period while Adjusted EBITDA rose 119.6% to $1.3 million. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA was attributable to the reallocation of corporate expenses to ERI Corporate in 2014. Net revenues and Adjusted EBITDA for the full year ended December 31, 2014 of $103.7 million and $8.0 million, respectively, compares to net revenues and Adjusted EBITDA of $106.7 million and $10.0 million, respectively, for the full year ended December 31, 2013.

The Company is currently remodeling over 200 rooms in the Skyline Tower at its namesake Eldorado Resort Casino Reno and expects to complete the project in the second quarter of 2015 at a total cost of $3.1 million.

Reno and the surrounding area continue to experience an economic resurgence. A total of 34 companies relocated to the city and surrounding area in 2014, creating nearly 4,200 jobs and reducing unemployment to 6.4% at the end of the year from a high of 14.2% in 2011. In September 2014, Tesla Motors announced it would open a battery manufacturing facility in the area which is expected to create 6,500 total permanent jobs. Tesla’s announcement followed the earlier entry of Apple, Zulily, eBay, Urban Outfitters, Petco and Amazon into the Reno area. Eldorado is already one of downtown Reno’s leading resort/hotels and the tower upgrade will further position it to benefit as businesses in the science, technology and engineering sectors are attracted to the market and its favorable tax environment continues to drive improvements in the local economy.

Net revenues at Silver Legacy, a joint venture between Eldorado and MGM Resorts, increased 1.4% to $29.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to $29.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. Silver Legacy’s results, which are included in the Company’s income statement as equity in income of unconsolidated affiliates, are not consolidated in Eldorado’s income statement and are not included in Adjusted EBITDA. Net revenues for the full year ended December 31, 2014 were $127.1 million compared to net revenues of $125.8 million for the full year ended December 31, 2013.

Ohio

Net revenues at Scioto Downs Racino declined 1.6% to $35.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2014 from $35.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. Adjusted EBITDA from the property declined 5.5% to $11.6 million from $12.2 million in the comparable quarter of 2013. Net revenues and Adjusted EBITDA for the full year ended December 31, 2014 of $148.5 million and $49.3 million, respectively, compares to net revenues and Adjusted EBITDA of $145.6 million and $49.4 million, respectively, for the full year ended December 31, 2013.

The Company is currently undertaking a $9.5 million expansion of Scioto Downs Racino and in December 2014 opened a 5,000 square-foot outdoor smoking patio with 60 video lottery terminals (“VLTs”) at a cost of $2.1 million. Earlier this month, Eldorado announced that it commenced construction at Scioto Downs of The Brew Brothers, a new $5.9 million microbrewery and restaurant, which is expected to open by the fourth quarter of 2015. In addition to the smoking patio and The Brew Brothers microbrewery and restaurant, the current Phase II property expansion plan will include a new bakery and snack bar that are expected to open by the fourth quarter of 2015.

In November, a new executive chef joined Scioto Downs Racino and is working with Gregg Carano and the staff to develop and refine the menu and kitchen operations.

West Virginia

Net revenues at Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort declined 11.8% to $40.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2014 from $45.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, reflecting the impact of new competition from a racino that opened in eastern Ohio in the third quarter of 2014. Adjusted EBITDA from the property declined 34.4% to $5.2 million from $8.0 million in the comparable quarter of 2013. The decrease in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to increased promotional allowances and marketing intended to offset new Ohio gaming competition and continued competitive pressure from existing casinos in the region. Net revenues and Adjusted EBITDA for the full year ended December 31, 2014 of $184.8 million and $30.4 million, respectively, compares to net revenues and Adjusted EBITDA of $196.9 million and $35.8 million, respectively, for the full year ended December 31, 2013.

In late 2014, the Company completed a $3.8 million upgrade of the 354 room hotel at the property. Following the completion of the upgrade project, fourth quarter revenue per occupied room (RevPOR) increased 13.5% year over year. In addition, Gregg Carano and his team have introduced Carano family-style recipes, food and beverage concepts at Mountaineer.

Pennsylvania

Net revenues at Presque Isle Downs & Casino declined 3.1% to $32.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2014 from $33.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. Adjusted EBITDA increased 5.5% to $3.7 million from $3.5 million in the comparable quarter of 2013. The higher EBITDA in the fourth quarter was achieved despite the impact of new gaming competition in Ohio and continued competitive pressure from existing casinos in the region. Net revenues and Adjusted EBITDA for the full year ended December 31, 2014 of $142.7 million and $19.4 million, respectively, compares to net revenues and Adjusted EBITDA of $155.2 million and $23.3 million, respectively, for the full year ended December 31, 2013.

Eldorado has significant plans for Presque Isle Downs, which was the sole gaming offering in the region when it commenced gaming operations in February 2007. Reflecting increased competition and Eldorado’s commitment to food, beverage and hospitality excellence, the Company intends to invest approximately $5.0 million in property upgrades in 2015.

The plans contemplate a reconfiguration of the gaming floor that will include the addition of a center bar with flat-screen televisions, along with sound and light features, the renovation of the high-limit gaming area, a full redesign of the property’s La Bonne Vie Steakhouse entrance and exterior façade and a refresh of the existing casino bar at the property. These upgrades and renovations are expected to be completed by the third quarter of 2015. In addition, Eldorado also plans to replace 115 slot machines at Presque Isle Downs in 2015 with the latest offerings.

In January, a new executive chef joined Presque Isle Downs and is working with Gregg Carano and the staff to revamp the menu, kitchen operations and guest satisfaction.

Louisiana

Net revenues at Eldorado Shreveport increased 2.2% to $31.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to $31.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. Adjusted EBITDA from the property declined to $4.2 million from $4.5 million in the comparable quarter of 2013. Net revenues and Adjusted EBITDA for the full year ended December 31, 2014 of $134.0 million and $24.1 million, respectively, compares to net revenues and Adjusted EBITDA of $140.5 million and $29.7 million, respectively, for the full year ended December 31, 2013.

Since acquiring the former Hollywood Casino Shreveport in 2005 out of bankruptcy, the Company has made significant capital investments in the property’s gaming, F&B and hotel operations to effect its strategies for offering market-leading amenities combined with high levels of guest interactions. As a result, there are limited project cap-ex plans for Eldorado Shreveport in 2015, though the casino cage will be relocated to make room for an expanded and updated casino floor bar.

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 (losses) earnings before interest expense (income), income tax expense (benefit), depreciation and amortization, (loss) gain on the sale or disposal of property, loss on property donation, other regulatory gaming assessment costs, loss on asset impairment, project opening costs, acquisition/strategic transaction costs, loss (gain) on modification, early retirement or extinguishment of debt and equity in (income) loss of unconsolidated affiliate, 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.
