(a)         

Represents results of operations for Horseshoe Baltimore for periods prior to the consolidation from purchase of minority interest of one of the partners on August 26, 2021. 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.

(b)         

Excludes results of operations from divestitures as detailed in (e), includes results of operations of Horseshoe Baltimore for periods prior to consolidation, and William Hill US prior to the acquisition for the periods presented, for the relevant period. Such presentation does not conform to 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.

(c)           

Represents results of operations for William Hill US for periods prior to the acquisition. 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.

(d)          

Represents results of operations for Former Caesars prior to the Merger. Additionally, certain corporate overhead costs which were historically charged to properties within the segments during the year ended December 31, 2020 have been reclassified to Corporate and Other. These costs primarily include centralized marketing expenses, redundant executive and management payroll and benefits expenses, centralized contract labor expenses, and corporate rent expenses. Such figures are based on unaudited internal financial statements and have not been reviewed by the Company's auditors and, for the 2020 periods, do not conform to GAAP.

(e)       

Divestitures for year ended December 31, 2021 include results of operations for MontBleu, Tropicana Evansville, and discontinued operations of Caesars Southern Indiana, Harrah's Louisiana Downs and Caesars UK group; three months ended December 31, 2020 include results of operations for Eldorado Resort Casino Shreveport, MontBleu, Tropicana Evansville and discontinued operations of Korea JV, Bally's Atlantic City, Caesars Southern Indiana, Harrah's Louisiana Downs and Caesars UK group; and year ended December 31, 2020 include results of operations for Isle of Capri Kansas City, Lady Luck Vicksburg, Eldorado Resort Casino Shreveport, MontBleu, Tropicana Evansville and discontinued operations of Korea JV, Harrah's Reno, Bally's Atlantic City, Caesars Southern Indiana, Harrah's Louisiana Downs and Caesars UK group. 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.

(f)      

Excludes results of operations from divestitures as detailed in (e) and includes results of operations of Horseshoe Baltimore for periods prior to the consolidation, William Hill US prior to the acquisition and of Former Caesars prior to the Merger, including discontinued operations, for the relevant period. Such presentation does not conform to 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.

(g)       

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 net income (loss), which the Company believes is the most comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

As of December 31, 2021, Caesars had $14.3 billion in aggregate principal amount of debt outstanding. Total cash and cash equivalents were $1.1 billion, excluding restricted cash of $642 million.

"In 2021, we completed our acquisition of William Hill PLC and applied strong operating cash flows to debt reduction of approximately $1.0 billion. We expect to continue to reduce debt in 2022 through the receipt of asset sale proceeds and generation of significant free cash flow," said Bret Yunker, Chief Financial Officer.

Reconciliation of GAAP Measures to Non-GAAP Measures

Adjusted EBITDA (described 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 our 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 net income (loss) before interest income or interest expense, net of interest capitalized, (benefit) provision for income taxes, unrealized (gain) loss on investments and marketable securities, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, impairment charges, transaction expenses, severance expense, selling costs associated with the divestitures of properties, equity in income (loss) of unconsolidated affiliates, (gain) loss on the sale or disposal of property and equipment, (gain) loss related to divestitures, changes in the fair value of certain derivatives and certain non-recurring expenses such as sign-on and retention bonuses, business optimization expenses and transformation expenses, certain litigation awards and settlements, losses on inventory associated with properties temporarily closed as a result of the COVID-19 public health emergency, contract exit or termination costs, and certain regulatory settlements. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes the expense associated with certain of our leases as these transactions were accounted for as financing obligations and the associated expense is included in interest expense. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of performance or liquidity calculated in accordance with GAAP. It 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, payments under our leases with affiliates of GLPI and VICI Properties, Inc. 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 Adjusted 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.

____________________

(a)         

Other (income) loss for the year ended December 31, 2021 primarily represents the change in fair value of investments held by the Company and the change in fair value of the derivative liability related to the 5% Convertible Notes and the three months ended December 31, 2021 primarily represents the change in fair value of investments held by the Company. Other (income) loss for the three months and year ended December 31, 2020 primarily relates to gains resulting from the change in the foreign currency exchange rate associated with restricted cash held in GBP and a derivative contract associated with our acquisition of William Hill, gains on William Hill UK and Flutter stock held by the Company and realized gains on conversion of CEC's 5% convertible notes. Partially offsetting these gains is a loss on the change in fair value of the derivative liability related to CEC's 5% convertible notes.

(b)           

Transaction costs and other operating costs for the periods presented primarily represent costs related to the William Hill acquisition and the Merger, various contract or license termination exit costs, professional services, other acquisition costs and severance costs.

(c)          

Other items primarily represent certain consulting and legal fees, rent for non-operating assets, relocation expenses, retention bonuses, and business optimization expenses.

(d)         

Represents results of operations for Horseshoe Baltimore for periods prior to the consolidation due to an increase in our ownership on August 26, 2021. 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.

(e)        

Divestitures for year ended December 31, 2021 include results of operations for MontBleu, Tropicana Evansville, and discontinued operations of Caesars Southern Indiana, Harrah's Louisiana Downs and Caesars UK group; three months ended December 31, 2020 include results of operations for Eldorado Resort Casino Shreveport, MontBleu, Tropicana Evansville and discontinued operations of Korea JV, Bally's Atlantic City, Caesars Southern Indiana, Harrah's Louisiana Downs and Caesars UK group; and year ended December 31, 2020 include results of operations for Isle of Capri Kansas City, Lady Luck Vicksburg, Eldorado Resort Casino Shreveport, MontBleu, Tropicana Evansville and discontinued operations of Korea JV, Harrah's Reno, Bally's Atlantic City, Caesars Southern Indiana, Harrah's Louisiana Downs and Caesars UK group. 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.

(f)          

Excludes results of operations from divestitures as detailed in (e) and includes results of operations of Horseshoe Baltimore for periods prior to the consolidation and William Hill US prior to the acquisition for the periods presented. Such presentation does not conform to 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.

(g)         

Pre-acquisition William Hill US represents results of operations for William Hill prior to the acquisition. Such figures are based on unaudited internal financial statements and have not been reviewed by the Company's auditors and, for the 2021 and 2020 periods, do not conform to GAAP.

(h)         

Pre-acquisition CEC represents results of operations for Former Caesars prior to the Merger. Such figures are based on unaudited internal financial statements and have not been reviewed by the Company's auditors and, for the 2020 periods, do not conform to GAAP.

(i)          

Excludes results of operations from divestitures as detailed in (e) and includes results of operations of Horseshoe Baltimore for periods prior to the consolidation, William Hill US prior to the acquisition and of Former Caesars prior to the Merger, including discontinued operations, for the relevant period. Such presentation does not conform to 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.
