ELDORADO RESORTS COMPLETES ACCRETIVE CASH AND STOCK ACQUISITION OF ISLE OF CAPRI CASINOS

“We are excited to welcome the Isle of Capri properties to the Eldorado Resorts family!  Eldorado Resorts is now home to 19 properties across 10 states. More updates to come as we feature our new properties throughout the Nation.”

Eldorado Resorts, Inc. (NASDAQ: ERI) (“Eldorado,” “ERI,” or “the Company”) announced today that it completed its previously announced acquisition of Isle of Capri Casinos, Inc. (NASDAQ: ISLE) (“Isle of Capri” or “Isle”) in a cash and stock transaction.  The combination creates a premiere, diversified regional gaming platform with combined annual revenue of more than $1.7 billion for the year ended December 31, 2016 for Eldorado and January 22, 2017 for Isle and adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) of approximately $394 million for that period after giving effect to identified cost synergies of approximately $35 million which are expected to be realized over the next four quarters.  The Company’s shares will continue to trade on the NASDAQ Global Select Market under the symbol “ERI.”

 

Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, Eldorado acquired all of the outstanding shares of Isle of Capri for $23.00 in cash or 1.638 shares of Eldorado common stock, at the election of each Isle of Capri shareholder.  Isle of Capri shareholder elections were subject to proration such that the outstanding shares of Isle common stock were exchanged for aggregate consideration comprised of 58% cash, or $552.0 million, with the remaining 42% of the consideration paid to Isle of Capri shareholders in the form of 28.5 million newly issued shares of Eldorado common stock.  Following the consummation of the merger, Eldorado has approximately 75.6 million common shares outstanding.  The transaction is expected to be immediately accretive to Eldorado’s free cash flow and diluted earnings per share (after giving effect to the identified cost synergies as well as Isle’s recently completed sale of Lady Luck Casino Marquette for $40 million and previously announced divestiture of Isle of Capri Casino Hotel Lake Charles for $134.5 million which is expected to be completed later in 2017).

 

The Isle transaction adds twelve casino–resorts to Eldorado’s portfolio and significantly expands its operational and geographic diversity.  Eldorado’s expanded property portfolio includes 19 properties in ten states featuring approximately 20,000 slot machines and VLTs, more than 550 table games and over 6,500 hotel rooms.

 

Gary Carano, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Eldorado, commented, “Our acquisition of Isle of Capri marks a significant milestone in Eldorado’s history of growth through strategic, accretive acquisitions.  The combination significantly expands the scale of our gaming operations, further diversifies our geographic reach into new markets and minimizes market-specific risk.

 

“We are delighted to welcome the Isle shareholders and team members to the Eldorado family.  We believe that Eldorado is positioned for continued growth with a portfolio of premiere regional gaming assets, a solid balance sheet and an attractive weighted average cost of capital.  Our experience in integrating the MTR assets and Silver Legacy and Circus Circus operations will serve us well as we add the Isle of Capri assets to our operating base.  We intend to implement our strategy of focusing on margin enhancement and customer service and experiences across the portfolio by marrying best practices from both companies.  Led by our gaming, hotel management and food and beverage teams with a long-term record of operating execution and M&A integration, we believe that Eldorado Resorts is positioned for near- and long-term success and the creation of value for our shareholders.”

 

Tom Reeg, President and Chief Financial Officer of Eldorado, added, “The financing for the transaction was executed at favorable rates that should permit us to generate more incremental annual free cash flow than we originally expected.  With our experienced management team, operating discipline and return-focused approach to capital expenditures, we believe the acquisition represents another meaningful opportunity for Eldorado Resorts and our existing and new shareholders.”

 

J.P. Morgan acted as exclusive financial advisor and Milbank Tweed Hadley & McCloy LLP acted as legal counsel to Eldorado in connection with the transaction.  Credit Suisse acted as exclusive financial advisor and Mayer Brown LLP acted as legal counsel to Isle of Capri in connection with the transaction.

Circus Circus Reno has Record-Breaking Green Year

Recycling data from 2016 shows that conservation efforts were highest ever

Through multiple conservation efforts, Circus Circus Reno is proud to share that 2016 was a record recycling year for the 1,571 room hotel casino. In a report received from Waste Management, Circus Reno’s recycling diversion rate for 2016 was close to 18.5%, meaning 18.5% of the property’s total waste stream was recycled as opposed to being sent to a landfill.

 

In 2016, Circus Reno recycled:

  • 256,000 pounds of single stream / white paper, glass and plastic bottles
  • 206,000 pounds of cardboard
  • 69,000 pounds of shredded paper
  • 9,000 pounds of miscellaneous plastics
  • 8,000 pounds of electronic waste

 

As part of Eldorado Resorts’ $50 million reinvestment into its Downtown Reno properties, Circus Circus Reno also recently installed energy-saving LED lighting to illuminate the exteriors of its two hotel towers. Making the switch from previous raceway-style lights to LED lighting was a positive green initiative for the hotel casino resulting in 90% less power usage than regular light bulbs and ultimately resulting in a dramatic decrease in power costs.
Circus Reno also has multiple water conservation programs including low-flow plumbing fixtures in its 1,500 plus hotel rooms. Hotel room toilets use only 1.28 gallons of water per flush while aerator devices installed in the bathroom sink faucets limit water flow to 1.5 gallons of water per minute. At the hotel’s restaurants, water is only served upon request which reduces both water and the energy it takes to wash a dirty glass.
