Caesars Entertainment Reports Financial Results for the Third Quarter of 2019
Recorded Strong Performance in Las Vegas in the Third Quarter
Signed Purchase Agreement for the Sale of Rio for $516 Million in Proceeds
Expanded Sports Betting Offerings to Two New States

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Caesars Entertainment Corporation (NASDAQ: CZR) ("CEC," "Caesars," "Caesars Entertainment," or the "Company") today reported third quarter of 2019 results as summarized in the discussion below, which highlights certain GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures on a consolidated basis.

Third Quarter Highlights

  • Net revenues increased 2.3% to $2.24 billion.
  • Loss from operations was $68 million.
  • Net loss attributable to Caesars was $359 million. Basic loss per share totaled $0.53.
  • Non-GAAP hold adjusted net revenues increased 0.7% to $2.22 billion.
  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA increased 5.8% to $635 million.
  • Non-GAAP hold adjusted EBITDA increased 1.3% to $624 million.

Tony Rodio, CEO of Caesars Entertainment, said, "We are pleased to have delivered solid financial results in the third quarter with net revenue growth across all business verticals, despite headwinds across our portfolio. Revenue performance was driven by our Las Vegas region due to increased consumer demand, with particular strength in the hotel business which continues to outpace prior years across properties. Coupled with corporate expense reductions, this led to strong adjusted EBITDA growth as well as margin expansion."

Proposed Sale of the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino

In September, Caesars announced an agreement to sell the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino (the "Rio") for $516.3 million. The sale is expected to close by the end of 2019, and Caesars will continue to operate the Rio for a minimum of two years pursuant to a lease agreement to be executed at the closing. The property will remain part of the Caesars Rewards network during the term of the lease.

Proposed Merger with Eldorado Resorts, Inc.

Caesars filed a definitive proxy statement with the SEC on October 11, 2019, and the shareholder votes for each of Caesars and Eldorado Resorts, Inc. on the merger agreement (the "Merger Agreement") will occur on November 15, 2019. The two companies have made significant progress on the integration planning process, and the merger of the two companies (the "Merger") remains on track to close in the first half of 2020, subject to all required regulatory approvals.

Basis of Presentation

Certain additional non-GAAP financial measures have been added to highlight the results of the Company. "Hold adjusted" results are adjusted to reflect the hold we achieved compared to the hold we expected. See the tables at the end of this press release for the reconciliation of non-GAAP to GAAP presentations.

Financial Results

Caesars views each property as an operating segment and aggregates such properties into three regionally-focused reportable segments: (i) Las Vegas, (ii) Other U.S. and (iii) All Other, which is consistent with how Caesars manages the business. The results of each reportable segment presented below are consistent with the way management assesses these results and allocates resources, which is a consolidated view that adjusts for the effect of certain transactions between reportable segments within Caesars. We recast previously reported segment amounts to conform to the way management assesses results and allocates resources for the current year. "All Other" includes managed, international and other properties as well as parent and other adjustments to reconcile to consolidated Caesars results.

Net revenues increased $51 million driven by growth in all business verticals, with significant growth in Las Vegas due to healthy consumer demand. Las Vegas gaming revenues grew 17.3% year over year due to favorable hold and higher gaming volumes. Las Vegas hotel strength also came from solid year over year growth this quarter in ADR, which increased 3.7%, and RevPAR, which increased 7.0%. Las Vegas occupancy was 95.6% in the quarter, up from 92.6% in 2018. Other U.S. net revenues declined $6 million year over year due to competition in Atlantic City and Southern Indiana. All Other net revenues decreased $6 million year over year, primarily due to lower gaming volumes in the UK. Across all of our casino properties, hold had a favorable impact of $31 million to $36 million this quarter compared to the prior year, and was $10 million to $15 million above our expectations.

** Percentage is not meaningful.

Income/(loss) from operations decreased from income of $232 million to a loss of $68 million primarily due to an increase in operating expenses of $351 million in the third quarter of 2019 compared with 2018 due to recognition of $380 million in impairment charges related to land and buildings at Rio and $19 million additional expenses in 2019 associated with an extra half month of operations associated with the acquisition of Centaur Holdings, LLC ("Centaur") in the Other U.S. region. These increases were offset in part by a decrease in depreciation and amortization of $43 million due to disposals of property and equipment and accelerated depreciation in the third quarter of 2018 related to certain renovation projects in the prior year. The increase in operating expenses was partially offset by a $51 million increase in net revenues in the third quarter of 2019 compared with 2018, as explained above.

Income from operations also decreased $300 million in the third quarter of 2019 compared with 2018, as explained above.

CAESARS ENTERTAINMENT CORPORATION
SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION

Average daily rate ("ADR") is calculated as the cash or comp revenue recognized during the period divided by the corresponding rooms occupied. Total ADR is calculated as total room revenue divided by total rooms occupied.

Revenue per available room ("RevPAR") is calculated as the total room revenue recognized during the period divided by total room nights available for the period.

Property earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") is presented as a measure of the Company's performance. Property EBITDA is defined as revenues less property operating expenses and is comprised of net income/(loss) before (i) interest expense, including finance obligation expenses, net of interest capitalized and interest income, (ii) income tax (benefit)/provision, (iii) depreciation and amortization, (iv) corporate expenses, (v) certain items that the Company does not consider indicative of its ongoing operating performance at an operating property level, and (vi) lease payments associated with our financing obligation. Included in Adjusted EBITDA is property rent expense of $3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019 related to certain land parcels leased from VICI.

In evaluating property EBITDA you should be aware that, in the future, the Company may incur expenses that are the same or similar to some of the adjustments in this presentation. The presentation of Property EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that future results will be unaffected by unusual or unexpected items.

Property EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure commonly used in our industry and should not be construed as an alternative to net income/(loss) as an indicator of operating performance or as an alternative to cash flow provided by operating activities as a measure of liquidity (as determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP" or "U.S. GAAP")). Property EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies within the industry. Property EBITDA is included because management uses property EBITDA to measure performance and allocate resources, and believes that property EBITDA provides investors with additional information consistent with that used by management.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA further adjusted to exclude certain non-cash and other items as exhibited in the following reconciliation and is presented as a supplemental measure of the Company's performance. Management believes that adjusted EBITDA provides investors with additional information and allows a better understanding of the results of operational activities separate from the financial impact of decisions made for the long-term benefit of the Company. In addition, compensation of management is in part determined by reference to certain of such financial information. As a result, we believe this supplemental information is useful to investors who are trying to understand the results of the Company.

Adjusted EBITDA margin is calculated as adjusted EBITDA divided by net revenues. Adjusted EBITDA margin is included because management uses adjusted EBITDA margin to measure performance and allocate resources, and believes that adjusted EBITDA margin provides investors with additional information consistent with that used by management.

Because not all companies use identical calculations, the presentation of adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

In addition, we present adjusted EBITDA, further adjusted to show the impact on the period of the hold we achieved versus the hold we expected. Management believes presentation of this further adjusted information allows a better understanding of the materiality of those impacts relative to the Company's overall performance.

The following tables reconcile net income/(loss) attributable to Caesars Entertainment Corporation to property EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA for the periods indicated and reconcile hold adjusted results.
