Caesars Entertainment, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2023 Results

Caesars Entertainment, Inc., (NASDAQ: CZR) (“Caesars,” “CZR,” “CEI” or “the Company”) today reported operating results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2023.

Fourth Quarter Results:

  • GAAP net revenues of $2.83 billion versus $2.82 billion for the comparable prior-year period.
  • GAAP net loss of $72 million compared to a net loss of $148 million for the comparable prior-year period.
  • Same-store Adjusted EBITDA of $930 million versus $949 million for the comparable prior-year period.
  • Caesars Digital Adjusted EBITDA of $29 million versus $(5) million for the comparable prior-year period.

Full Year Results:

  • GAAP net revenues of $11.5 billion versus $10.8 billion for the comparable prior-year period.
  • GAAP net income of $786 million compared to a net loss of $899 million for the comparable prior-year period.
  • Same-store Adjusted EBITDA of $3.9 billion versus $3.2 billion for the comparable prior-year period.
  • Caesars Digital Adjusted EBITDA of $38 million versus $(666) million for the comparable prior-year period.

Tom Reeg, Chief Executive Officer of Caesars Entertainment, Inc., commented, “Our fourth quarter operating results demonstrated consolidated net revenue growth, reduced net loss and stable consolidated Adjusted EBITDA year over year.

Full year results benefited from a 78% increase in Caesars Digital net revenues to approximately $1.0 billion, and an over $700 million improvement in this segment’s Adjusted EBITDA.”

____________________

  1. Adjustment for pre-disposition results of operations reflecting the subtraction of results of operations for Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino and Belle of Baton Rouge and discontinued operations of William Hill International prior to divestiture, for the relevant periods. Such figures are based on unaudited internal financial statements and have not been reviewed by the Company’s auditors for the periods presented. The additional financial information is included to enable the comparison of current results with results of prior periods.
  2. Adjusted EBITDA is not a GAAP measurement and is presented solely as a supplemental disclosure because the Company believes it is a widely used measure of operating performance in the gaming industry. See “Reconciliation of GAAP Measures to Non-GAAP Measures” below for a definition of Adjusted EBITDA and a quantitative reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss), which the Company believes is the most comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

As of December 31, 2023, Caesars had $12.4 billion in aggregate principal amount of debt outstanding. Total cash and cash equivalents were $1.0 billion, excluding restricted cash of $138 million.

  1. Revolver capacity includes $2.25 billion under our CEI Revolving Credit Facility, maturing in January 2028, less $40 million reserved for specific purposes.

“On February 6th we successfully closed on our $4.4 billion refinancing, allowing us to repay all outstanding 2025 debt and extending our nearest maturity to July of 2027. Since the Caesars merger closed in the third quarter of 2020, we have permanently repaid over $3.0 billion in debt and we look forward to another year of strong debt reduction in 2024. We ended the quarter with total net leverage as calculated under our bank credit facility of 3.9x as of December 31, 2023,” said Bret Yunker, Chief Financial Officer.

Reconciliation of GAAP Measures to Non-GAAP Measures

Adjusted EBITDA (described below), a non-GAAP financial measure, has been presented as a supplemental disclosure because it is a widely used measure of performance and basis for valuation of companies in our industry and we believe that this non-GAAP supplemental information will be helpful in understanding our ongoing operating results. Management has historically used Adjusted EBITDA when evaluating operating performance because we believe that the inclusion or exclusion of certain recurring and non-recurring items is necessary to provide a full understanding of our core operating results and as a means to evaluate period-to-period results. Adjusted EBITDA represents net income (loss) before interest income or interest expense, net of interest capitalized, (benefit) provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, (gain) loss on extinguishment of debt, impairment charges, other (income) loss, net income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests, transaction costs associated with our acquisitions, developments and divestitures, and non-cash changes in equity method investments. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes the expense associated with certain of our leases as these transactions were accounted for as financing obligations and the associated expense is included in interest expense. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of performance or liquidity calculated in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA is unaudited and should not be considered an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income (loss) as an indicator of our operating performance. Uses of cash flows that are not reflected in Adjusted EBITDA include capital expenditures, interest payments, income taxes, debt principal repayments, and payments under our leases with affiliates of GLPI and VICI Properties, Inc., which can be significant. As a result, Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as a measure of our liquidity. Other companies that provide EBITDA information may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do. The definition of Adjusted EBITDA may not be the same as the definitions used in any of our debt agreements.
