Net revenues   $ 761.4     $ 793.2     $ 712.6  
Adjusted EBITDA (1)     211.4       225.2       189.8

Diluted (loss) earnings per common share (3)   $ (0.16 )   $ 0.68     $ 0.63  
(1)     Adjusted EBITDA is income (loss) from operations, excluding the impact of stock compensation, impairment losses, insurance recoveries and deductible charges, depreciation and amortization, and gain or loss on disposal of assets, and is inclusive of gain or loss from unconsolidated affiliates. A reconciliation of net income (loss) per accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) to adjusted EBITDA, as well as income (loss) from operations per GAAP to adjusted EBITDA, is included in the accompanying financial schedules.
(2) The figures in this column present the guidance Penn National provided on April 18, 2013 for the three months ended June 30, 2013.
(3) Since the Company reported a loss from operations for the three months ended June 30, 2013, it was required by GAAP to use basic weighted-average common shares outstanding, rather than diluted weighted-average common shares outstanding, when calculating diluted loss per common share.

Peter M. Carlino, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Penn National Gaming, commented, “Second quarter operating results fell short of our guidance due to several factors: In addition to soft industry-wide regional gaming revenue trends, several properties in the Midwest and Southern Plains segments endured extreme weather, including tornados, flooding and construction disruption, which led to closures as well as insurance deductible charges. Other facilities were negatively impacted by competitive pressures, including marketing promotions that due to economic return considerations we elected not to match. Partially offsetting these challenges, our second quarter adjusted EBITDA includes $4.3 million of favorable tax settlements in various jurisdictions.
