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

Net revenues generated by CDI's Online Business increased 11 percent, or $17.9 million, to $183.3 million in 2012, compared to the previous year, reflecting an increase in Online Business handle of 10.9 percent, which continues to outpace national industry trends.

Net revenues from CDI's Racing Operations segment increased $3.2 million during 2012, reflecting an increase in revenues at Churchill Downs Racetrack due to a strong performance from Kentucky Oaks and Derby week and a 4 percent increase in live race days during the year ended December 31, 2012, as compared to the prior year.

Net earnings from continuing operations for 2012 were $58.3 million, or $3.34 per diluted common share, compared to net earnings from continuing operations of $60.8 million, or $3.55 per diluted common share, in 2011.

EBITDA for 2012 declined 5 percent compared to EBITDA recorded during 2011 primarily due to the recognition of $19.3 million in net proceeds from the Illinois Horse Racing Equity Trust Fund (HRE Trust Fund). EBITDA for 2012 represents the second highest full year EBITDA. 

Racing Operations EBITDA decreased $13.5 million over the previous year, primarily from the HRE Trust Fund. Partially offsetting these declines was increased profitability of $5.4 million from the Kentucky Oaks and Derby week related to improvements in admissions, sponsorships and pari-mutuel revenues during the year ended December 31, 2012.  

Gaming EBITDA increased $10.8 million, primarily due to a full year of operations at Harlow's and the acquisition of Riverwalk.  Harlow's generated EBITDA of $26.5 million during the year ended December 31, 2012, compared to EBITDA of $17.5 million during the prior year. Harlow's results included insurance recoveries, net of losses, of $6.5 million during 2012 compared to $0.4 million during the prior year. The Company's acquisition of Riverwalk generated EBITDA of $2.8 million during the year ended December 31, 2012. Partially offsetting these increases was a decline in EBITDA of $1.1 million at Calder Casino due to competitive pressures and local economy challenges.
