    Rocky Gap generates $4.7 million in September




    Rocky Gap Casino Resort includes 579 slot machines and 18 table games.

    CUMBERLAND — Rocky Gap Casino Resort generated $4.7 million from its slot machines and table games in September, a 6.1 percent increase when compared to the same month last year, according to numbers released by the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency.
    Combined, the state's six casinos made nearly $135 million for the month, an increase of $37.4 million compared to September 2016.
    In a year-to-year comparison not including MGM National Harbor, which opened Dec. 8, statewide casino revenue decreased nearly $12 million. MGM National Harbor generated just under $50 million from its slot machines and table games last month.



    Revenue at Rocky Gap increased $270,970 from last year's September numbers.
    The resort operates 665 slot machines and 17 banked table games. Gross gaming revenue per unit per day was $206.23 for slot machines and $1,648.53 for banked table games.
    The other casinos that showed year-to year increases were Ocean Downs and Hollywood Casino Perryville.
    Casino contributions to the state go to the Maryland Education Trust Fund and also support small-, minority- and women-owned businesses, local impact grants and the state’s horse racing industry.
    In Allegany County, the funds benefit Opportunity Scholarships for students attending Allegany College of Maryland and Frostburg State University, local fire companies, board of education capital programs and the county’s pay-as-you-go account.





    In August, Rocky Gap resort officials said contributions to Allegany County totaled nearly $3 million since the casino's 2014 opening.
    Rocky Gap Casino Resort is a subsidiary of Las Vegas-based Golden Entertainment.
    Maryland Lottery and Gaming is responsible for oversight of the state’s casinos.

    earnings tonight

    Transformational.
    That is the simplest word to describe our recently completed acquisition of the four casinos associated with American Casino & Entertainment Properties.
    In one move, Golden Entertainment has more than doubled its size and its influence in the Nevada gaming community. We are a leading Nevada-focused regional gaming company, positioned to grow through our state’s powerful economic strength.
    Golden Entertainment is a well-respected brand in Nevada. This month, we will open our 56th Nevada-style tavern in the Las Vegas-area though
    PT’s Entertainment Group. We have plans underway to continue growing our market-leading presence in 2018.
    The company’s distributed gaming operations is the largest in the United States with our route partners in Nevada and Montana.
    The addition of the four properties gives us a presence in four key Southern Nevada gaming markets and continues to establish the Golden Entertainment brand.
    The
    Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower is an iconic Las Vegas destination. Our goal is to make it even better. We view the Stratosphere as not just the centerpiece of a revitalization of the north end of the Las Vegas Strip, but the catalyst for creating new destination experiences that may cover a mile-long section of Las Vegas Boulevard, from Sahara Avenue to Charleston Boulevard.
    We look forward to working with the City of Las Vegas in making this vision a reality.
    Our vibrant Las Vegas locals’ business is bolstered by the addition of
    Arizona Charlie’s Casino Decatur and Arizona Charlie’s Casino Boulder. The two casinos complement our growing tavern business and our distributed gaming operations.
    The
    Aquarius Casino Resort in Laughlin provides Golden Entertainment with the Colorado River community’s leading gaming property. Our three Pahrump casinos – Pahrump Nugget, Gold Town and Lakeside – are the market leaders in Nye County.
    We are also proud of our
    Rocky Gap Casino Resort in picturesque Western Maryland. The property is adjacent to the Rocky Gap State Park and is home to Maryland’s only Jack Nicklaus-designed 18-hole championship golf course.
    We have added a very experienced and credible team to bolster our existing family and Golden Entertainment now employs more than 7,200 team members.
    I have been involved in the gaming business since 1982 and our management team’s DNA is in casino operations.
    I founded Golden Entertainment in 2001 with 900 gaming devices in taverns throughout the Las Vegas Valley. Our company has come a long way and this transaction is truly transformational event.
    Over the next 12 to 18 months, look for Golden Entertainment to capitalize on our new scale and begin rolling out more benefits for our long-standing customer base and our new customers who have been loyal to the Stratosphere, Aquarius and both Arizona Charlie’s properties.
    Blake L. Sartini
    Chairman and CEO

    PT’s continues 2017 growth; launches third year of ‘Ride Safe’

    Dec 8, 2017 | Blake Sartini, blog |
    PT’s Entertainment Group has been busy in 2017. We are not done.
    In November, we opened our fifth all-new PT’s Gold this year. Our newest traditional Nevada-style tavern is at 8275 Fort Apache Road, north of Wigwam Avenue and across from the western entrance to the Rhodes Ranch residential community.
    We have five more taverns planned for next year, starting in January with a PT’s Gold for South Green Valley Parkway and Horizon Ridge. The next four will follow along schedule in the Las Vegas area. We will soon pass the 60-tavern threshold through with our popular brands – PT’s Pub, PT’s Gold, PT’s Ranch, PT’s Brewing Co., Sean Patrick’s, Sierra Gold, and SG Bar.
    Golden Entertainment Inc. is bullish on the vibrant Las Vegas economy and we see continued opportunities for expansion and growth. Our development strategy centers on expanding the PT’s brand throughout the Las Vegas market and bringing the best tavern experience to the growing areas of the valley. We are also proud to employ more than 800 team members in our Nevada taverns.
    The other four taverns we opened in 2017 are PT’s Gold on Valley View south of Sunset Road, PT’s Gold on Buffalo Drive near Warm Springs, PT’s Gold at the intersection of Decatur Boulevard and Silverado Ranch Road, and PT’s Gold on Oso Blanca Road in Centennial Hills.
    All our taverns are participating with Lyft Las Vegas in the “Ride Safe” program during the holidays. This is the third year of the program we introduced and our first with Lyft.
    The partnership encourages our guests not to drink and drive. At the same time, we found a way to benefit the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Foundation.
    Through Jan. 1, PT’s Entertainment Group will donate $1 to the foundation for every Lyft ride from one of our Southern Nevada taverns. Lyft has also agreed to contribute an additional $1 to the foundation for every ride taken from the taverns.
    Drugs and alcohol factor into nearly half of all fatal traffic crashes in Clark County.
    Providing a safe ride alternative to and from our taverns is a priority. The “Ride Safe” program was a tremendous success in our first two campaigns. Our goal this year is to create an even greater awareness related to all alcohol-related traffic incidents. We also look forward to building upon an ongoing partnership with the Police Foundation.

    The deal priced @ 28 , the stock is up pre market . I believe the secondary too out most of the leaches from Goldman who never invest in anything, and represents the overhang in the stock . There is a 30 day quiet period after an offering like this, but then we should see some Recos JP Morgan ( the underwriter in particular )

    Union Gaming positive on Golden Entertainment

    Mar. 16, 2018 7:46 AM ET|By: Clark Schultz, SA News Editor

    Union Gaming keeps a Buy rating on Golden Entertainment (NASDAQ:GDEN) after factoring in the company's Q4 earnings report.
    Analyst John DeCree notes the strong EBITDA tally for the quarter ($229M vs. $26.5M estimated by Union) and observes that a deep freeze in Montana contributed slightly to margin pressure. DeCree's estimate for 2018 EBITA of $187M is ahead of the company's own guidance for $184M to $190M.
    "We like both the value and growth opportunity in the shares of GDEN and we continue to see even incremental upside from potential M&A, the refinancing opportunity with the 2nd lien debt later this year, a potential REIT partner/transaction, and upside from the Stratosphere redevelopment program," writes DeCree.

    Golden Entertainment to Acquire Two Laughlin, Nevada Casino Resorts in Accretive Transaction



    Business WireJuly 16, 2018









    LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
    Golden Entertainment, Inc. (GDEN) (“Golden” or the “Company”) today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement with Marnell Gaming LLC, to acquire the Edgewater Hotel & Casino Resort and the Colorado Belle Hotel & Casino Resort in Laughlin, Nevada. The purchase price will be based on an 8.0x multiple of the combined trailing twelve months adjusted EBITDA of both properties as of November 2018, with a minimum price of $168 million and a maximum price of $190 million. Including expected cost synergies and cash acquired, the purchase price is expected to represent an implied trailing twelve months adjusted EBITDA multiple of 6.5x.
    The purchase consideration will consist of $155 million of cash and the balance in restricted stock issued at a price of $28.54 per share.
    The transaction will be financed with incremental debt under the Company’s credit facility and cash on hand. Pro forma for the transaction, the Company’s net leverage is expected to be below 5x at closing. The Company expects the acquisition to be cash flow positive and immediately accretive to operating results.
    Blake Sartini, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Golden, said, "The acquisition of the Edgewater Hotel & Casino Resort and the Colorado Belle Hotel & Casino Resort provides us with an exciting opportunity to expand our portfolio to nine wholly-owned casino resorts in Southern Nevada, solidifying our presence in this growing and attractive gaming market. The transaction is consistent with our strategy to grow our business in an accretive manner for shareholders and Golden is uniquely positioned to benefit immediately from cost synergies related to the acquisition of these properties.”
    The Edgewater Hotel & Casino Resort and the Colorado Belle Hotel & Casino Resort collectively feature over 1,400 slot machines, 40 table games and 2,150 hotel rooms. The properties also feature eleven restaurants and dedicated entertainment venues including the Laughlin Event Center. The Laughlin Event Center is an outdoor arena with 12,000 seats and hosts multiple headline concerts and other events throughout the year. The two properties are adjacent to Golden’s current Laughlin property, the Aquarius Casino Resort, which features over 1,200 slot machines, over 30 table games and almost 2,000 hotel rooms. When combined, these three properties will be situated on 55 contiguous acres along the heart of the Laughlin Riverwalk.
    Mr. Sartini added, “The Marnell family has a long history in the gaming industry including, designing, building and owning some of the most iconic resorts that now define the Las Vegas resort corridor. Over the past several years, Marnell Gaming has taken their expertise and created a significant hotel, casino and entertainment presence in Laughlin, and we are excited to build on these well positioned properties. As a result of this transaction, I am pleased to welcome Anthony Marnell III as a shareholder of Golden Entertainment.”
    The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2019, subject to customary closing conditions and the receipt of all required regulatory approvals.
    Latham & Watkins LLP served as legal advisor to Golden Entertainment for the transaction. Holland & Hart LLP served as legal advisor to Marnell Gaming.

    Long term hold for me, and will accumulate on any weakness


    Golden Entertainment Reports Second Quarter Results




    Business WireAugust 8, 2018









    LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
    Second Quarter highlights:
    - Increased revenues, net income, Adjusted EBITDA and EBITDA Margin
    - Stratosphere renovations on schedule and on budget
    - Reiterating full year Adjusted EBITDA guidance
    Golden Entertainment, Inc. (GDEN) (“Golden Entertainment” or the “Company”) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.
    Blake L. Sartini, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Golden Entertainment, commented, “We are pleased with our second quarter results which saw revenue growth across both our casino and distributed gaming segments. Our strong financial performance was driven by our diversified portfolio, with particular strength from our Las Vegas Locals properties, our existing casino resort in Laughlin and our Rocky Gap property in Maryland. During the quarter, we were excited to begin our Phase I renovations to the Stratosphere, which we expect to be completed by year end. We also look forward to expanding our casino portfolio with our pending acquisition of two Laughlin casino resorts from Marnell Gaming, which is expected to close in the first quarter of 2019. This acquisition will allow us to benefit from operating synergies immediately after closing while increasing our presence in Southern Nevada, which we believe is one of the most attractive gaming markets in the country.”
    The Company reported second-quarter revenues of $216.5 million, up from $109.9 million in the second quarter of 2017. Net income for the second quarter of 2018 was $3.6 million or $0.13 per share, compared to net income of $1.7 million or $0.08 per share in the second quarter of 2017. Adjusted EBITDA was $46.3 million for the second quarter compared to $15.0 million for the second quarter of 2017.
    Adjusted EBITDA was up 13.6% and Adjusted EBITDA margin improved 230 basis points when compared to Combined Adjusted EBITDA and Combined Adjusted EBITDA margin for second quarter of 2017 including the results of American Casino & Entertainment Properties, LLC (“American”), which was acquired in October 2017.
    Casinos
    Casino segment revenues rose to $130.9 million in the second quarter of 2018 compared to $26.2 million in the second quarter of 2017. Including the results of American for the second quarter of 2017, Combined Revenues would have been $129.5 million. Casino segment Adjusted EBITDA rose to $42.2 million compared to $6.9 million in the same quarter in 2017. Adjusted EBITDA rose 10.3% when compared to the Combined Adjusted EBITDA of $38.2 million which includes the results of American for the second quarter of 2017.
    For our Nevada Casinos, second quarter revenues were $112.9 million, slightly up from Combined Revenues for the segment in the prior year period on a same property basis, while Adjusted EBITDA of $36.5 million was up 8.4% from Combined Adjusted EBITDA for the segment in the prior year period. This growth was primarily due to the effectiveness of our operational changes as well as particular strength from our Las Vegas Locals properties and our existing Laughlin resort.
    Our Rocky Gap Resort in Maryland saw increases in revenue of 3.8% to $18.0 million for the quarter, while Adjusted EBITDA increased 24.2% to $5.7 million which was in part due to the property’s tax rate on slot revenue being reduced in July 2017.
    Distributed Gaming
    Distributed Gaming segment revenues increased to $85.4 million, up 2.1% from $83.6 million in the second quarter of 2017. Adjusted EBITDA declined 4.7% to $12.8 million, from $13.5 million in the same period 2017.
    In our Nevada distributed gaming business, total revenues during the second quarter were $69.5 million, a year-over-year increase of 1.7%. Adjusted EBITDA of $10.6 million was down 5.7% compared to last year as our EBITDA growth in our wholly-owned tavern portfolio continued to be offset by weaker contribution from our chain store locations.
    Our Montana distributed business generated revenues of $15.9 million in the second quarter, an increase of 4.2% compared to last year. Adjusted EBITDA for the Montana distributed business was $2.2 million for the second quarter.
    Stratosphere Renovations Update
    Phase I of the Stratosphere renovations began in May, with the project proceeding on time to be completed by year end and on budget of approximately $32 million. Phase I includes the renovation of 317 rooms, the installation of state-of-the-art exterior signage and lighting, as well as the addition of a unique gastro brewery connected to a newly renovated sports book. We expect approximately 250 of these renovated rooms to be in service in September, with the balance completed in the fourth quarter.

    When our Stratosphere renovations are complete, we will have remodeled 1,133 rooms, refreshed the interior and exterior of the property, provided guests with new premium food and beverage outlets and added attractive group meeting space. Our total budget for the Stratosphere renovations remains at $140 million, and is expected to be completed by mid-2021.
    Balance Sheet & Liquidity
    As of June 30, 2018, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $140 million and total outstanding debt of approximately $1 billion. There were no outstanding borrowings under the Company’s $140 million revolving credit facility. At the end of the second quarter, the Company’s net leverage ratio (total debt less cash to Adjusted EBITDA for the 12 months ended June 30, 2018) was 5.2x.
    Full-Year 2018 Guidance
    For the full year 2018, Golden Entertainment is maintaining its guidance for total Adjusted EBITDA to be $184 million to $190 million. The Company continues to expect to end the year with a net leverage ratio below 4.75x.
