Segment Update

In the second quarter of 2021, the Company changed its management structure to better align with strategic growth initiatives in light of recent and pending acquisitions, which resulted in the re-alignment of its operating and reportable segments. For financial reporting purposes, these operating segments are aggregated into two reportable segments, East and West.

  • East – includes Twin River Casino Hotel, Tiverton Casino Hotel, Dover Downs, Bally’s Atlantic City, and Tropicana Evansville.
  • West – includes Hard Rock Biloxi, Casino Vicksburg, Bally’s Kansas City, Eldorado Shreveport, Bally’s Black Hawk, Bally’s Lake Tahoe, and Jumer’s Casino & Hotel.

The operating segments of Bally’s Interactive, which includes SportCaller, Monkey Knife Fight («MKF»), Bet.Works, and the Company’s online and mobile sports betting operations, Mile High USA, and shared services provided by corporate, are all reported in the «Other» category.

Second Quarter 2021 Results

Revenue for the second quarter of 2021 increased $238.8 million to $267.7 million from $28.9 million in the second quarter last year. This was primarily due to a reduction in COVID-19 restrictions, with all properties operating at full capacity as of quarter end as compared to 2020 when properties were closed from mid-March to June. Revenue for the East segment increased $122.0 million to $132.4 million and the West segment increased $109.7 million to $127.9 million compared to the same period last year. This marks the single largest revenue quarter in history. The incremental revenues from acquisitions completed in the second half of 2020, including Bally’s Kansas City, Casino Vicksburg, Bally’s Atlantic City and Eldorado Shreveport, and those acquired in the first half of 2021, including SportCaller, MKF, Bally’s Interactive, Bally’s Lake Tahoe (formerly MontBleu Resort Casino and Spa), Tropicana Evansville and Jumer’s Casino & Hotel, contributed to aggregate revenue of $134.6 million in the second quarter of 2021.

The Company also continued to see strong operational efficiencies that positively impacted margins, a trend since re-opening from the pandemic. Income from operations in the second quarter of 2021 increased $101.5 million year-over-year to $80.5 million, while operating margins increased to 30.1% compared to (72.5)% for the same period last year. Labor savings, reduced marketing and promotional spend, and the limited offerings of lower margin amenities due to COVID-19 related safety protocols continued to drive margin improvements.  

Net income for the second quarter of 2021 was $68.9 million, an increase of $92.5 million from a net loss of $23.6 million in the second quarter last year. Net income for the quarter was bolstered by several one-time items including pre-tax gains of $77.5 million recorded in connection with the acquisitions of Bally’s Lake Tahoe and Tropicana Evansville. Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2021 was $83.8 million, an increase of $94.5 million from negative Adjusted EBITDA of $10.7 million in the second quarter last year. The West segment Adjusted EBITDA increased to $52.1 million from $4.7 million in the second quarter last year. Adjusted EBITDA for the East segment was $41.6 million compared to negative Adjusted EBITDA of $10.3 million in the second quarter last year.

Diluted EPS for the second quarter of 2021 was $1.40 compared to diluted loss of $0.77 per share for the comparable period in 2020. Adjusted EPS was $0.48 for the second quarter of 2021 compared to a loss per share of $0.80 during the same period in 2020.

Other Financial Information

As of June 30, 2021, the Company had $195.8 million in cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash of $677.8 million, which included $667.9 million of cash proceeds from the April 2021 common stock offering to finance the acquisition of Gamesys.

Total debt was $1.37 billion as of June 30, 2021 compared to $1.13 billion as of December 31, 2020.

Interest expense, net of interest income, for the second quarter of 2021 increased $6.2 million to $21.3 million. This primarily resulted from the increase in debt obligations outstanding in each respective period coupled with timing and differences in interest rates.

Global Refinancing

As previously announced, the Company obtained commitments, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions, for proposed senior secured credit facilities of up to $2.57 billion, consisting of up to a $1.95 billion senior secured first lien term loan facility and a $620.0 million senior secured first lien revolving credit facility. The proceeds of the new credit facilities plus other resources will be used to, among other things, refinance existing debt, pay a portion of the Gamesys acquisition price and refinance Gamesys debt.

The Company also entered into agreements for the private placement of $1.50 billion in aggregate principal amount of senior notes in two separate series consisting of $750 million in aggregate principal amount of senior notes due 2029 and $750 million in aggregate principal amount of senior notes due 2031. The bond offerings will close into escrow, subject to completion of the Gamesys acquisition.

Reconciliation of GAAP Measures to Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement the financial information presented on a generally accepted accounting principles («GAAP») basis, the Company has included in this earnings release non-GAAP financial measures for Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, and Adjusted EPS, which exclude certain items described below. The Company believes these measures represent important measures of financial performance that provide useful information that is helpful in understanding the Company’s ongoing operating results. The reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to their comparable GAAP financial measures are presented in the tables appearing below.

«Adjusted EBITDA» is earnings, or loss, for the Company, or where noted the Company’s reportable segments, before, in each case, interest expense, net of interest income, provision (benefit) for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, non-operating (income) expense, acquisition, integration and restructuring expenses, share-based compensation, gain on sale-leaseback, and certain other gains or losses as well as, when presented for the Company’s reporting segments, an adjustment related to the allocation of corporate costs among segments. Adjusted EBITDA margin is measured as Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenue.

«Adjusted EPS» represents net income, or loss, per diluted share before non-operating (income) and expense, acquisition, integration and restructuring expenses, gain on sale-leaseback, and certain other gains or losses.

Management has historically used Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and Adjusted EPS when evaluating operating performance because the Company believes that the inclusion or exclusion of certain recurring and non-recurring items is necessary to provide a full understanding of the Company’s core operating results and as a means to evaluate period-to-period performance. Management also believes that Adjusted EBITDA is a measure that is widely used for evaluating operating performance of companies in our industry and a principal basis for valuing resort and gaming companies like the Company. Management of the Company believes that while certain items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS may be recurring in nature and should not be disregarded in evaluating the Company’s earnings performance, it is useful to exclude such items when comparing current performance to prior periods because these items can vary significantly depending on specific underlying transactions or events that may not be comparable between the periods presented or they may not relate specifically to current operating trends or be indicative of future results. Neither Adjusted EBITDA nor Adjusted EPS should be construed as an alternative to GAAP net income or GAAP diluted EPS, respectively, as an indicator of the Company’s performance. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA or Adjusted EPS as used by the Company may not be defined in the same manner as other companies in the Company’s industry, and, as a result, may not be comparable to similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures of other companies.
