“During this unprecedented pandemic, we remain focused on the health and safety of our team members, customers and communities,” said Bill Carstanjen, Chief Executive Officer.  “We appreciate the support we are receiving from our state and local government and regulatory officials as well as our community leaders who are reviewing our proposed safety protocols and working with us to determine the appropriate timing for re-opening our properties.”

“Our strong balance sheet and the deep experience and resilience of our team will enable us to emerge from these challenging times as a stronger company ready to execute on all of the growth opportunities we have shared with our investors,” said Carstanjen.  “We look forward to the 146th Kentucky Derby on September 5th which will be a special day for all of us as we celebrate together once again this magical and iconic event after such a difficult period for our country.”

First Quarter 2020 Net Loss Attributable to CDI

The Company's first quarter of 2020 net loss attributable to CDI was $23.4 million compared to net income of $11.6 million in the prior year quarter. The Company's first quarter of 2020 net loss from continuing operations was $22.6 million compared to net income from continuing operations of $11.9 million in the prior year quarter. CDI had $0.9 million in net loss from discontinued operations in the first quarter of 2020 compared to $0.3 million in the prior year quarter. Our net loss attributable to our noncontrolling interest was $0.1 million in the first quarter of 2020.

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

  • $12.0 million non-cash after-tax expense related to our impairment of the Presque Isle Downs and Casino intangible assets; and
  • $7.6 million after-tax expense increase related to our equity portion of the non-cash change in fair value of Midwest Gaming's (the parent company of Rivers Des Plaines) interest rate swaps;
  • Partially offset by:
    • $3.1 million after-tax decrease of our equity portion of Midwest Gaming's recapitalization and transaction costs in the first quarter of 2019 that did not recur in the current year quarter;
    • $2.8 million non-cash tax impact related to the re-measurement of our net deferred tax liabilities in the first quarter of 2019 that did not recur in the current year quarter based on an increase in revenue related to states with higher tax rates; and
    • $2.7 million after-tax decrease in expenses related to transaction, pre-opening and other expenses in the current year quarter compared to the prior year quarter.

Excluding these items, net income from continuing operations decreased $23.5 million primarily due to the following:

  • $20.2 million after-tax decrease driven by the results of our operations and equity income from our unconsolidated affiliates primarily due to the temporary closure of our gaming facilities as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic; and
  • $3.3 million after-tax increase in interest expense associated with higher outstanding debt balances.

The Company's first quarter 2020 net loss from discontinued operations increased by $0.6 million compared to the prior year quarter due to higher legal expenses related to Big Fish Games. Big Fish Games is reported as discontinued operations for all periods presented. 

COVID-19 Update

The COVID-19 pandemic and measures taken to limit the impact of COVID-19, including shelter-in-place orders, social distancing measures, travel bans and restrictions, and business and government shutdowns, have already resulted in significant negative economic impacts in the United States and in relation to our business.

The impact of COVID-19 on the Company resulted in the temporary closure or suspension of operations at certain of our properties beginning on March 14, 2020 as a precautionary measure in cooperation with state and local authorities in order to protect our employees, customers, and communities. The supplemental information in this release provides additional detail on the properties that have been impacted.  The Company is fully committed to working with relevant federal, state and local authorities to determine when it is safe and permitted for each property to reopen.

On March 25, 2020, as a result of these temporary closures, the Company announced the temporary furlough of employees at its wholly-owned gaming properties and certain wholly-owned racing operations. The Company is continuing to provide health, dental, vision and life insurance benefits to furloughed employees at our wholly-owned properties. The Company also implemented a salary reduction for all remaining non-furloughed salaried employees based on a percentage that varies dependent upon the amount of each employee’s salary. The most senior level of executive management has received the largest salary decrease, based on both percentage and dollar amount. The salary reductions will remain in effect until the Company begins to return to normalized operations.

There have been a number of other aspects of our business that have been impacted by COVID-19 during the three months ended March 31, 2020, including the following:

  • The Company rescheduled the 146th Kentucky Oaks and Derby from May 1-2, 2020 to September 4-5, 2020Kentucky Derby week race dates and related events will begin on September 1, 2020.
  • Starting in mid-February 2020, U.S. and international sporting events were cancelled, which reduced our sports betting options for our customers.
  • Horse racing content for wagering on TwinSpires decreased, although handle increased as our customers wagered more on the content that was available.

CDI Financial Status and Outlook

The Company temporarily reduced its planned maintenance and project capital expenditures for 2020 as a result of the temporary property and operations closures described above and prioritization of capital investments based on the highest near-term return opportunities in order to maintain financial flexibility.

On March 16, 2020, we borrowed $675.4 million on our revolving credit facility in order to provide the Company with additional financial flexibility and to give the Company a total unrestricted cash and cash equivalents position of $700.9 million as of March 31, 2020.

On April 28, 2020, the Company entered into a Second Amendment to its Credit Agreement, which (i) provides for a financial covenant relief period through the date on which the Company delivers its quarterly financial statements and compliance certificate for the fiscal quarter ending June 30, 2021, subject to certain exceptions (the “Financial Covenant Relief Period”), (ii) amends the definition of “Consolidated EBITDA” in the Credit Agreement with respect to the calculation of Consolidated EBITDA for the first two fiscal quarters after the termination of the Financial Covenant Relief Period, (iii) extends certain deadlines and makes certain other amendments to the Company’s financial reporting obligations, (iv) places certain restrictions on restricted payments during the Financial Covenant Relief Period, and (v) amends the definitions of “Material Adverse Effect” and “License Revocation” in the Credit Agreement to take into consideration COVID-19. 

During the Financial Covenant Relief Period, the Company will not be required to comply with its existing consolidated total secured net leverage ratio financial covenant and the interest coverage ratio financial covenant.  The Company has agreed to a minimum liquidity financial covenant that requires the Company and its restricted subsidiaries to maintain liquidity of at least $150.0 million during the Financial Covenant Relief Period.

We continue to assess the situation at our properties and operations on a daily basis; however, we are unable to determine when we will be able to reopen our properties and operations and the conditions upon which we will reopen. Our second quarter of 2020 financial results will be materially impacted by the rescheduling of the Kentucky Oaks and Derby from the second quarter of 2020 to the third quarter of 2020, by the continued closure and suspended operations of our wholly-owned gaming properties and certain wholly-owned racing operations, and by the continued closure of the casino properties related to our two equity investments.

Based on our projected operating cash flow needs, interest and debt repayments, and revised maintenance and project capital expenditures described above, we believe we have adequate cash for at least the next twelve months to fund our business operations, meet all of our financial commitments, and invest in key growth capital projects.

Turfway Park Annex

On April 21, 2020, CDI’s Board of Directors approved up to $38.4 million of capital expenditures relating to Turfway Park's racetrack in Newport, Kentucky, including its design, permits, historical racing machines (“HRMs”) and the improvement and buildout of an extension of the racetrack in an existing shopping center structure. On April 21, 2020, The Kentucky Horse Racing Commission ratified CDI's approval to begin construction on the track extension to Turfway Park at Newport Plaza Shopping Center, as well as conditional approval of pari-mutuel wagering, including HRMs. The 46,500 sq. ft. leased location will serve as a simulcast and HRM facility while Turfway Park is under renovation and will support the purse funding for future Turfway Park live race meets. The facility will open with a simulcast area including a separate VIP simulcast room, a 17,000 square feet gaming floor with 500 HRMs and a feature bar. The facility will provide approximately 70 full time-equivalent jobs. We anticipate that Turfway Park’s track extension will be available to open in the fourth quarter of 2020.

Derby City Gaming Smoking Patio

On April 21, 2020, CDI’s Board of Directors approved $13.5 million of capital expenditures related to the construction of a new outdoor smoking patio on the south side of our existing Derby City Gaming facility to complement the current smoking patio on the north side of the facility. The new smoking patio will result in a net addition of 195 HRMs to Derby City Gaming. We anticipate that the new smoking patio will open by early fourth quarter of 2020.

Segment Results

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

Churchill Downs First Quarter
(in millions) 2020   2019
       
Net revenue $ 23.8     $ 21.4  
Adjusted EBITDA 1.9     1.4  
           

For the first quarter of 2020, net revenue increased $2.4 million from the prior year quarter primarily due to a $2.9 million increase from Derby City Gaming's continued growth prior to the temporary closure of the facility. Partially offsetting the increase was a $0.5 million decrease at Churchill Downs Racetrack primarily due to the temporary suspension of simulcasting operations. 

Adjusted EBITDA increased $0.5 million in the first quarter of 2020 from the prior year quarter due to a $1.7 million increase from Derby City Gaming due to the increase in net revenue, partially offset by a $1.2 million decrease from Churchill Downs Racetrack primarily due to higher salaries and related benefits as well as our temporary suspension of simulcast operations.

As previously announced, the Company rescheduled the 146th Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby to be held on September 4th and 5th, 2020.  Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby related events will begin on September 1, 2020.  

Online Wagering First Quarter
(in millions) 2020   2019
       
Net revenue $ 67.7     $ 63.4  
Adjusted EBITDA 15.0     16.9  
           

For the first quarter of 2020, net revenue increased $4.3 million from the prior year quarter primarily due to a $3.7 million increase at TwinSpires. U.S. thoroughbred industry handle decreased 1.0% during the first quarter of 2020 compared to the prior year quarter. Although horse racing content for wagering decreased, TwinSpires handle grew 8.3% during the first quarter of 2020 compared to the prior year quarter as our customers wagered more on the content that was available. Active players increased 11.6% for the first quarter of 2020 compared to the prior year quarter while net revenue per active player declined 3.5%.

Our online sports betting and iGaming net revenues increased $0.6 million compared to the prior year quarter primarily due to a full quarter of iGaming results in Pennsylvania and New Jersey for the first quarter of 2020 compared to the prior year quarter. Sports betting net revenue growth was impacted by the suspension of all major U.S. and international sporting events beginning in mid-February 2020.

Adjusted EBITDA decreased $1.9 million in the first quarter of 2020 from the prior year quarter primarily due to a $4.1 million decrease from increased marketing spend and costs associated with the continued build-out of our online sports betting and iGaming operations, partially offset by a $2.2 million increase from TwinSpires due to an increase in handle and active players.

Gaming First Quarter
(in millions) 2020   2019
       
Net revenue $ 149.1     $ 170.1  
Adjusted EBITDA 49.0     64.8  
           

For the first quarter of 2020, net revenue decreased $21.0 million from the prior year quarter primarily driven by the loss of revenue resulting from the temporary closure of all of our Gaming properties.

Adjusted EBITDA decreased $15.8 million for the first quarter of 2020 from the prior year quarter primarily driven by:

  • $21.2 million decrease at our wholly-owned Gaming properties from the decrease in net revenue from the temporary closure of all of our Gaming properties;
  • Partially offsetting this decrease was a $5.4 million increase from our equity investments primarily from a full quarter of results in the first quarter of 2020 at Rivers Des Plaines that was partially offset by the temporary closure of our equity investment properties.

All Other

For the first quarter of 2020, All Other Adjusted EBITDA decreased $2.1 million primarily due to a $1.2 million decrease from United Tote due to lower totalisator equipment sales in first quarter of 2020 compared to the prior year quarter, a $0.9 million decrease due to unfavorable results from the first full quarter of racing operations at Turfway Park, and a $0.5 million decrease from other sources. Partially offsetting these decreases was a $0.5 million increase at our corporate operations due to a reduction in accrued bonuses.

Capital Management

The Company repurchased 235,590 shares of its common stock in conjunction with its publicly announced share repurchase program at a total cost of $27.9 million in the first quarter of 2020. We had approximately $147.1 million repurchase authority remaining under this program as of March 31, 2020.

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 help investors to better understand the operating results of the Company 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 enables 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; net income or loss attributable to noncontrolling interest; changes in fair value for interest rate swaps related to Midwest Gaming; recapitalization costs related to the Midwest Gaming transaction; transaction expense, which includes acquisition and disposition related charges, Calder racing 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 the Company's portion of EBITDA from our equity investments.

Adjusted EBITDA excludes:

  • Transaction expense, net which includes:
    • Acquisition and disposition related charges;
    • Calder racing exit costs; and
    • Other transaction expense, including legal, accounting, and other deal-related expense;
  • Stock-based compensation expense;
  • Midwest Gaming's impact on our investments in unconsolidated affiliates from:
    • The impact of changes in fair value of interest rate swaps; and
    • Recapitalization and transaction costs;
  • Asset impairments;
  • Gain on Ocean Downs/Saratoga Transaction;
  • Legal reserves;
  • Pre-opening expense; and
  • Other charges, recoveries and expenses

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