Fourth Quarter 2019 Net Income Attributable to CDI

The Company's fourth quarter 2019 net income attributable to CDI was $4.0 million, comprised of $4.2 million in net income from continuing operations and $0.5 million in net loss from discontinued operations, and excluding $0.3 million in net loss attributable to noncontrolling interest, compared to $11.4 million in the prior year quarter, comprised of $7.3 million in net income from continuing operations and $4.1 million in net income from discontinued operations. 

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

  • $7.5 million after-tax expense related to the accelerated amortization of the purchase and sale agreement rights related to the acquisition of Turfway Park;
  • $5.6 million non-cash tax expense related to the re-measurement of our net deferred tax liabilities from changes in state enacted rates;
  • $0.2 million after-tax increase in expenses related to higher transaction, pre-opening, and other expenses; and
  • Partially offset by $2.3 million after-tax expense related to our equity portion of the non-cash change in fair value of Midwest Gaming's interest rate swaps.

Excluding these items, fourth quarter 2019 net income from continuing operations grew $7.9 million primarily due to the following:

  • $13.0 million after-tax increase driven by the results of operations and equity in income from unconsolidated affiliates;
  • $0.9 million tax benefit related to higher discrete items impacting fourth quarter 2019 compared to the prior year quarter; and
  • Partially offset by $6.0 million after-tax increase in interest expense associated with higher outstanding debt balances.

The Company's fourth quarter 2019 net loss from discontinued operations increased by $4.6 million compared to the prior year quarter due to an income tax benefit incurred during the fourth quarter of 2018 related to a change in estimate for state apportionment treatment of our discontinued operations in certain states in which recent tax reform had been passed, which did not occur in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Full Year 2019 Net Income Attributable to CDI

The Company's 2019 net income attributable to CDI was $137.5 million, comprised of $139.6 million in net income from continuing operations and $2.4 million in net loss from discontinued operations, and excluding $0.3 million in net loss attributable to noncontrolling interest, compared to $352.8 million in the prior year, comprised of $182.6 million in net income from continuing operations and $170.2 million in net income from discontinued operations. 

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

  • $42.3 million after-tax non-cash gain in the third quarter of 2018 on the acquisition of the remaining 50% equity interest in Ocean Downs Casino & Racetrack ("Ocean Downs") in exchange for the 25% equity interest in Saratoga New York and Saratoga Colorado properties;
  • $9.3 million after-tax expense related to our equity portion of the non-cash change in fair value of Midwest Gaming's interest rate swaps;
  • $8.3 million non-cash tax expense related to the re-measurement of our net deferred tax liabilities from changes in state enacted rates;
  • $7.5 million after-tax expense related to the accelerated amortization of the purchase and sale agreement rights related to the acquisition of Turfway Park in 2019;
  • $3.5 million after-tax expense related to Midwest Gaming's recapitalization and transaction costs;
  • $3.4 million after-tax increase in expenses due to legal reserves; and
  • Partially offset by $3.0 million after-tax decrease in expenses related to lower transaction, pre-opening and other expenses.

Excluding these items, 2019 net income from continuing operations grew $28.3 million primarily due to the following:

  • $55.8 million after-tax increase driven by the results of our operations and equity in income of our unconsolidated affiliates;
  • Partially offset by:
    • $22.1 million after-tax increase in interest expense associated with higher outstanding debt balances; and
    • $5.4 million tax expense related to a higher effective tax rate compared to the prior year due to an increase in income attributable to states with higher tax rates.

The Company's 2019 net income from discontinued operations decreased $172.6 million from the prior year primarily driven by the after-tax gain on the sale of Big Fish Games in January 2018.

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, 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;
  • 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;
  • Loss on extinguishment of debt;
  • 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 consolidated statements of comprehensive income. Refer to the reconciliation of comprehensive income to Adjusted EBITDA included herewith for additional information.
