Churchill Downs Incorporated Reports 2012 Fourth-Quarter And Year-End Results

Net earnings from continuing operations for the fourth-quarter of 2012 were $2.4 million, or $0.14 per diluted common share, versus $4.3 million, or $0.25 per diluted common share, during the final quarter of 2011.

CDI's fourth-quarter EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) decreased to $17.6 million from the record $19.6 million reported during the same period last year.

Gaming EBITDA improved $2.4 million due to the acquisition of Riverwalk. Racing EBITDA declined $1.5 million primarily due to Churchill Downs Racetrack not hosting the Breeders' Cup in 2012, as they did in 2011. In addition, Corporate EBITDA decreased $2.1 million during the fourth-quarter of 2012 due to increases in equity compensation expenses related to the successful performance of the Company during 2012. Finally, Online Business EBITDA declined $0.7 million as expenditures related to the Company's new real money gaming site,, offset incremental EBITDA generated by growth in the segment's core operations.


Net revenues from continuing operations for 2012 climbed to an all-time record $732.4 million, up from $696.9 million in 2011, a 5 percent increase. The growth in net revenues was due largely to the continued expansion of the Company's Online Business, a record Kentucky Oaks and Derby week performance and incremental net revenues from the October 2012 acquisition of Riverwalk. 

Net revenues from the Company's Gaming segment increased $10.5 million, primarily due to $10.3 million of net revenues generated by Riverwalk.  In addition, Gaming revenues increased $3.4 million at Harlow's Casino Resort & Spa (Harlow's) during the year ended December 31, 2012, which was closed for 25 days during the same period of 2011, as a result of damage sustained from the Mississippi River flooding. These increases were partially offset by a $5.0 million decline in net revenues at Calder Casino during the year ended December 31, 2012, due to increased regional competitive pressure from the opening of a new casino in Miami during January 2012, along with what we believe to be a weak South Florida economy.
