Empire Resorts And EPR Properties Welcome Voter Approval Of NY State Referendum Permitting Full-Scale Casino Gaming In New York

New York State voters yesterday approved Proposition One, a constitutional amendment authorizing full-scale casino gaming in New York. Empire Resorts, Inc. (Nasdaq-GM: NYNY) and EPR Properties (NYSE: EPR) welcome passage of the referendum, which we believe represents an important next step of the two-year process through which Empire and EPR have collaborated to master plan, design and implement a fully integrated resort destination casino on the site of the former Concord Resort in Sullivan County (the “Casino Project”). Empire intends to apply for and actively pursue a license to operate such a full-scale casino from the New York State Gaming Commission.

“We are pleased that the people of New York have voted in favor of Proposition One, and look forward to the opportunity to build a first class casino facility at the site of the former Concord Resort, which we anticipate will deliver construction and permanent jobs, property tax relief and school funding made possible by this legislation,” said Emanuel Pearlman, Chairman of the Board of Empire.

David Brain, President and CEO of EPR Properties, stated, “With this affirmative outcome we look forward to working with our operating partner, Empire Resorts, in submitting a proposal for a casino- anchored destination resort which will significantly enhance the economic vitality of the surrounding community.
