FIRST QUARTER 2019 NET INCOME

The Company's first quarter 2019 net income was $11.6 million, comprised of $11.9 million in net income from continuing operations and $0.3 million in net loss from discontinued operations, compared to $182.0 million in the prior year quarter, comprised of $14.1 million in net income from continuing operations and $167.9 million in net income from discontinued operations.

The following items impacted the comparability of the Company's first quarter net income from continuing operations:

  • $6.6 million after-tax impact of our portion of Midwest Gaming's non-cash recapitalization costs based on our percentage ownership of Midwest Gaming;
  • $2.8 million non-cash tax impact related to the re-measurement of our net deferred tax liabilities based on an increase in revenue related to states with higher tax rates compared to the prior year quarter; and
  • $2.5 million after-tax increase in expenses primarily related to higher transaction expenses and pre-opening expenses. 

Excluding these items, first quarter 2019 net income from continuing operations increased $9.7 million primarily due to the following:

  • $12.5 million after-tax increase driven by the results of our operations and equity in income from our unconsolidated affiliates.
  • Partially offset by $2.8 million after-tax increase in interest expense associated with higher outstanding debt balances.

The Company's first quarter 2019 net income from discontinued operations decreased by $168.2 million compared to the prior year quarter related to net income from Big Fish Games, Inc. ("Big Fish Games"), driven by the $168.3 million after-tax gain on the sale of Big Fish in January 2018 (the “Big Fish Transaction”).

Due to the Big Fish Transaction, the Company has presented Big Fish Games as held for sale and discontinued operations in the condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

SEGMENT RESULTS

During the first quarter of 2019, we realigned our operating segments to reflect the internal management reporting used by our chief operating decision maker to evaluate results of operations and to assess performance and allocate resources. As a result of such alignment, our three reportable segments are: Churchill Downs, Online Wagering, and Gaming.  The Churchill Downs segment includes live and historical pari-mutuel racing related revenue and expenses at Churchill Downs Racetrack and Derby City Gaming.  The Online Wagering segment includes the revenue and expenses for the TwinSpires business ("TwinSpires") and the online sports betting and iGaming business.  The Gaming segment includes revenue and expenses for the casino properties and associated racetrack or Jai Alai facilities which support the casino license as applicable.  Effective January 1, 2019, the Company does not allocate corporate and other related expenses to the operating segments in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of comprehensive income in this press release and our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.  Prior year results were reclassified to conform to this presentation.  Refer to our Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 23, 2019 for further details regarding our segment realignment.

The summaries below present net revenue from external customers and intercompany revenue from each of our reportable segments:

Churchill Downs First Quarter
(in millions) 2019   2018
       
Net revenue $ 21.4     $ 2.3  
Adjusted EBITDA 1.4     (6.0 )

For the first quarter of 2019, net revenue increased $19.1 million from the first quarter of the prior year due to a $18.7 million increase from the opening of Derby City Gaming in September 2018 and a $0.4 million increase at Churchill Downs Racetrack.

Adjusted EBITDA increased $7.4 million from the first quarter of the prior year primarily due to the opening of Derby City Gaming in September 2018, which contributed $7.6 million of Adjusted EBITDA, partially offset by a $0.2 million decrease at Churchill Downs Racetrack.

Online Wagering First Quarter
(in millions) 2019   2018
       
Net revenue $ 63.4     $ 63.6  
Adjusted EBITDA 16.9     17.9  

For the first quarter of 2019, TwinSpires net revenue decreased $0.3 million from the prior year.  Active players grew 2.4% while net revenue per active player declined 3.3%.  Handle grew 0.1% during the first quarter 2019 compared to the prior year, which outpaced the U.S. thoroughbred industry performance by 3.5 percentage points.  Industry handle was down due to the shift in racing dates at Oaklawn Park Racetrack from the first quarter of 2019 to the second quarter of 2019, the impact of inclement weather and Santa Anita race date cancellations in the first quarter of 2019.

Adjusted EBITDA decreased $1.0 million due to our online sports betting and iGaming operations, which launched during the first quarter of 2019.  TwinSpires' Adjusted EBITDA was flat compared to the prior year quarter.

Gaming First Quarter
(in millions) 2019   2018
       
Net revenue $ 170.1     $ 112.5  
Adjusted EBITDA 64.8     46.4  

For the first quarter of 2019, net revenue increased $57.6 million from the prior year primarily driven by:

  • $29.7 million increase due to the acquisition of Presque Isle in January 2019;
  • $18.4 million increase due to the consolidation of Ocean Downs as a result of the acquisition of the remaining 37.5% of Ocean Downs in August 2018;  
  • $3.9 million increase at our Mississippi properties primarily due to the opening of our retail BetAmerica Sportsbooks at both properties in August 2018;
  • $3.4 million increase at Fair Grounds and VSI primarily due to two additional off-track betting and video poker facilities opening during 2018, successful marketing and promotional activities, and increased handle; and 
  • $2.3 million increase due to the acquisition of certain assets related to the management of Lady Luck Nemacolin.
  • Partially offsetting these increases was a $0.1 million decrease from other sources. 

Adjusted EBITDA increased $18.4 million primarily driven by:

  • $13.1 million increase from the acquisition of the 61.3% equity investment in Midwest Gaming in March 2019, the acquisition of Presque Isle in January 2019, and the  acquisition of certain assets related to the management of Lady Luck Casino Nemacolin in March 2019;
  • $2.4 million increase from our Mississippi properties primarily due to the opening of our retail BetAmerica Sportsbooks at both properties in August 2018;
  • $1.8 million increase from Fair Grounds and VSI primarily due to two additional off-track betting and video poker facilities opening during 2018;
  • $1.0 million increase from Ocean Downs due to VLT performance; and
  • $1.0 million increase from our equity investment at MVG.
  • Partially offsetting these increases were a $0.5 million decrease at Calder due to favorable insurance reserve adjustments in the prior year quarter that did not recur in 2019 and an increase in professional and legal fees in the first quarter of 2019.  Also, Oxford decreased $0.4 million primarily due to inclement weather. 

Capital Management

The Company repurchased 282,416 shares of its common stock in conjunction with its $300.0 million publicly announced share repurchase program at a total purchase price of $25.0 million in the first quarter of 2019, based on trade date.  We had approximately $243.0 million repurchase authority remaining under this program as of March 31, 2019, based on trade date.

Conference Call

A conference call regarding this news release is scheduled for Thursday, April 25, 2019, at 9 a.m. ET.  Investors and other interested parties may listen to the teleconference by accessing the online, real-time webcast and broadcast of the call at http://ir.churchilldownsincorporated.com/events.cfm, or by dialing (877) 372-0878 and entering the pass code 7187939 at least 10 minutes before the appointed time.  International callers should dial (253) 237-1169.  An online replay will be available at approximately noon ET on Thursday, April 25, 2019, and will continue to be available for two weeks.  A copy of the Company’s news release announcing quarterly results and relevant financial and statistical information about the period will be accessible at www.churchilldownsincorporated.com.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

In addition to the results provided in accordance with GAAP, the Company also uses non-GAAP measures, including adjusted net income, adjusted diluted EPS, EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) and Adjusted EBITDA.

The Company uses non-GAAP measures as a key performance measure of the results of operations for purposes of evaluating performance internally. These measures facilitate comparison of operating performance between periods and helps investors to better understand the operating results of CDI by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of the Company's core business or operating results. The Company believes the use of these measures enable management and investors to evaluate and compare, from period to period, the Company’s operating performance in a meaningful and consistent manner. The non-GAAP measures are a supplemental measure of our performance that is not required by, or presented in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income or diluted EPS (as determined in accordance with GAAP) as a measure of our operating results.

We use Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate segment performance, develop strategy and allocate resources. We utilize the Adjusted EBITDA metric to provide a more accurate measure of our core operating results and enable management and investors to evaluate and compare from period to period our operating performance in a meaningful and consistent manner. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to operating income as an indicator of performance, as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity, or as an alternative to any other measure provided in accordance with GAAP. Our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may be different from the calculation used by other companies and, therefore, comparability may be limited.

Adjusted net income and adjusted diluted EPS exclude discontinued operations net income or loss; recapitalization costs related to the Midwest Gaming transaction; transaction expense, which includes acquisition and disposition related charges, Calder exit costs, as well as legal, accounting, and other deal-related expense; pre-opening expense; and certain other gains, charges, recoveries, and expenses.

Adjusted EBITDA includes CDI's portion of the EBITDA from our equity investments.

Adjusted EBITDA excludes:

  • Transaction expense, net which includes:
    • Acquisition and disposition related charges, including fair value adjustments related to earnouts and deferred payments;
    • Calder Racing exit costs; and
    • Other transaction expense, including legal, accounting, and other deal-related expense;
  • Stock-based compensation expense;
  • Recapitalization costs related to the Midwest Gaming transaction;
  • Asset impairments;
  • Gain on Ocean Downs/Saratoga Transaction;
  • Loss on extinguishment of debt;
  • Pre-opening expense; and
  • Other charges, recoveries and expenses

For purposes of segment reporting, Adjusted EBITDA includes intercompany revenue and expense totals that are eliminated in the condensed consolidated statements of comprehensive income.  Refer to the reconciliation of comprehensive income to Adjusted EBITDA included herewith for additional information.
