The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic discussed below significantly impacted the Company’s second quarter 2020 results of operations, which included an additional $1.2 million impairment of goodwill and casino licenses as discussed below. The Company’s second quarter 2020 net operating revenue and Adjusted EBITDA also were significantly impacted by the acquisition of Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort, Century Casino Cape Girardeau and Century Casino Caruthersville (the «Acquired Casinos») in December 2019.

COVID-19 Update

In late 2019, an outbreak of COVID-19 was identified in China and has since spread throughout much of the world. Between March 13, 2020 and March 17, 2020, the Company closed all of its casinos, hotels and other facilities to comply with quarantines issued by governments to contain the spread of COVID-19. The Company’s Polish locations reopened on May 18, 2020 and its North American operations reopened between June 1, 2020 and June 17, 2020.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an adverse effect on the Company’s first and second quarter 2020 results of operations and financial condition, and the Company expects this situation will continue to have an adverse impact on its results for the remainder of 2020. The duration and ultimate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic otherwise remains uncertain. The trends below are not the only items that could impact the Company’s future performance, and the views of management are based on currently available information.

During the temporary closures of its casinos, hotels and other facilities, the Company took actions to reduce operating costs, including furloughing most of its personnel, implementing reduced work weeks for other personnel and temporarily reducing salaries to senior management on a voluntary basis. During the closures, the Company continued to pay benefits to its United States and Canadian employees, including part time employees. In Poland, all employees were paid reduced salaries based on local employment laws. The Company continues to operate with reduced spending on most advertising and marketing costs as well as implementing cost saving initiatives intended to eliminate approximately $13.7 million of non-labor operating costs in 2020. The Company intends to defer or eliminate approximately $2.2 million of discretionary capital projects for the remainder of 2020 in order to proactively address its capital spending for 2020. Additionally, the Company negotiated arrangements with some of its contractual counterparties, such as vendors and lessors, to modify the timing of certain contractual payments.

During the first and second quarters of 2020, the Company concluded that the COVID-19 pandemic and associated closure of its casinos were triggering events that could indicate possible impairment of its goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets. The Company performed a quantitative and qualitative impairment analysis and determined that goodwill and casino licenses related to certain reporting units were impaired. As a result, the Company recorded $1.2 million and $35.1 million to impairment – goodwill and intangible assets on its condensed consolidated statement of (loss) earnings for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively.  

As of June 30, 2020, the Company had $51.6 million in cash on hand, compared to $63.7 million at March 31, 2020 and $54.8 million at December 31, 2019.

SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION

*  The impact of foreign exchange rates is highly variable and difficult to predict.  The Company uses a Constant Currency basis to show the impact from foreign exchange rates on current period revenue compared to prior period revenue using the prior period’s foreign exchange rates. In order to properly understand the underlying business trends and performance of the Company’s ongoing operations, management believes that investors may find it useful to consider the impact of excluding changes in foreign exchange rates from the Company’s net operating revenue, earnings from operations and net earnings (loss) attributable to Century Casinos, Inc. shareholders. Constant currency results are calculated by dividing the current quarter or year to date local currency segment results, excluding the local currency impact of foreign currency gains and losses, by the prior year’s average exchange rate for the quarter or year to date and comparing them to actual U.S. dollar results for the prior quarter or year to date. The average exchange rates for the current quarter and the prior year second quarter are reported in Item 1 of the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. Constant currency information is not a measure of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (US GAAP) and should not be considered a substitute for net operating revenue, earnings from operations or net earnings (loss) attributable to Century Casinos, Inc. shareholders as determined in accordance with US GAAP.

**  The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net earnings (loss) attributable to Century Casinos, Inc. shareholders before interest expense (income), net, income taxes (benefit), depreciation and amortization, non-controlling interests net earnings (loss) and transactions, pre-opening expenses, acquisition costs, non-cash stock-based compensation charges, asset impairment costs, (gain) loss on disposition of fixed assets, discontinued operations, (gain) loss on foreign currency transactions, cost recovery income and other, gain on business combination and certain other one-time transactions. Expense related to the Master Lease and CDR land lease is included in the interest expense (income), net line item. Intercompany transactions consisting primarily of management and royalty fees and interest, along with their related tax effects, are excluded from the presentation of net earnings (loss) attributable to Century Casinos, Inc. shareholders and Adjusted EBITDA reported for each segment. Not all of the aforementioned items occur in each reporting period, but have been included in the definition based on historical activity. These adjustments have no effect on the consolidated results as reported under US GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA is not considered a measure of performance recognized under US GAAP. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA is a valuable measure of the relative performance of the Company and its properties. The gaming industry commonly uses Adjusted EBITDA as a method of arriving at the economic value of a casino operation. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA to compare the relative operating performance of separate operating units by eliminating the above-mentioned items associated with the varying levels of capital expenditures for infrastructure required to generate revenue and the often high cost of acquiring existing operations. Adjusted EBITDA is used by the Company’s lending institution to gauge operating performance. The Company’s computation of Adjusted EBITDA may be different from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similar measures used by other companies within the gaming industry. Please see the reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net earnings (loss) attributable to Century Casinos, Inc. shareholders above.

*** The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA margin as Adjusted EBITDA divided by net operating revenue. Adjusted EBITDA margin is a non-US GAAP measure. Management uses this margin as one of several measures to evaluate the efficiency of the Company’s casino operations.
