Lakes Entertainment Announces Results For Second Quarter 2013

As of June 30, 2013, the Company was in a year-to-date pre-tax book loss position. There was no income tax benefit for the second quarter of 2013 because the Company has utilized all carry back potential and future realization of benefits is uncertain. The income tax benefit for the second quarter of 2012 was $0.1 million and resulted from the Company’s ability to carry back its taxable losses to a prior year and receive a refund of taxes previously paid.

Six Month ResultsNet losses for the six months ended June 30, 2013 were $0.1 million, compared to net earnings of $2.2 million for the six months ended July 1, 2012. Loss from operations was $3.1 million for the first six months of 2013 compared to $2.7 million for the first six months of 2012. Basic and diluted losses were less than $0.01 per share for the first half of 2013 compared to earnings of $0.08 per share for the first half of 2012.

Lakes Entertainment reported net revenues of $11.9 million for the first six months of 2013, compared to net revenues of $4.5 million in the prior year period. The increase was due primarily to the addition of $5.4 million in net revenue related to the operation of Rocky Gap. Also contributing to the increase in revenues was an additional $1.9 million in management fees earned during the first half of 2013 compared to the prior year period related to the Red Hawk Casino.

During the first six months of 2013, property operating expenses for Rocky Gap which related primarily to gaming operations, rooms, food and beverage and golf were $4.0 million.

For the six months ended June 30, 2013, selling, general and administrative expenses were $8.4 million compared to $4.2 million for the six months ended July 1, 2012. Included in these amounts were Lakes corporate selling, general and administrative expenses of $4.0 million and $4.2 million, during the first six months of 2013 and 2012, respectively. The decrease in Lakes corporate selling, general and administrative expenses was due primarily to a decrease in payroll and related expenses and travel expenses which was partially offset by an increase in professional fees. Rocky Gap selling, general and administrative expenses were $4.4 million during the first six months of 2013.
