Dover Downs Gaming & Entertainment, Inc. Reports Results For The Fourth Quarter And Year Ended December 31, 2012

Dover Downs Gaming & Entertainment, Inc. (NYSE-DDE) today reported results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2012.

The Company’s revenues were $48,559,000 for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared with $61,619,000 for the fourth quarter of 2011. Gaming revenue decreased 21.4% compared to the fourth quarter of last year as a result of increased competition in the region compounded by the impact of hurricane Sandy.

Other operating revenues declined to $5,310,000 from $6,600,000 due primarily to lower food and beverage revenue related to catering services for the NASCAR weekend in Dover which was held in the third quarter of this year compared to the fourth quarter of last year. The lower casino volume and the hurricane also impacted these revenues. Occupancy levels in the Dover Downs Hotel were approximately 81% for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared with approximately 87% for the fourth quarter of 2011.

Net loss was ($528,000), or ($.02) per diluted share, compared with net earnings of $2,120,000, or $.07 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2011.

Net earnings for the year were $4,807,000, or $.15 per diluted share compared with $5,359,000 or $.17 per diluted share for 2011.

Denis McGlynn, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, stated: “Gaming expansion in Maryland and Pennsylvania continues to depress gaming revenues in Delaware and we are keeping the Lottery Office and the Administration informed as to the impacts on our business and our ability to maintain current employment levels. We are encouraging a review of the gaming tax structure during the current legislative session.”

“At the same time, we continue to collaborate on a roll out of the nation’s most comprehensive internet gaming program – estimated to commence in the third quarter of 2013. We remain confident that Delaware’s internet casino offerings will be among the first to come online and set the standard for other states. Our goal remains to stay one step ahead of the competition and to continue offering our patrons the region’s finest amenities and richest gaming experiences.”
