LAS VEGAS, Aug. 2, 2016 -- Caesars Entertainment Corporation (NASDAQ: CZR) today reported second quarter 2016 results as summarized in the discussion below, which highlights certain GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures on a consolidated basis.

Highlights

  • Net revenues for Continuing CEC increased 7.8% year-over-year to $1.2 billion primarily attributable to strength in Caesars Interactive Entertainment's ("CIE") social and mobile games business and growth in hospitality revenues in Las Vegas.
  • Net loss for Continuing CEC was $2.0 billion compared to net income of $50 million in the second quarter of 2015 and was largely driven by an accrual of $2.0 billion related to the restructuring of CEOC and a year-over-year increase in stock-based compensation at CIE due to fair value estimates.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for Continuing CEC grew 11.8% year-over-year to $388 million.
  • Net revenues for CIE increased 33.9% year-over-year to $249 million driven by greater monetization of monthly unique paying users in the social and mobile games business. Net income declined $43 million to a net loss of $4 million mainly due to an expense of $66 million for the quarter related to the fair value adjustment of CIE's stock-based compensation awards. Adjusted EBITDA grew 42.9% to $100 million.
  • Cash ADR in Las Vegas was up 8.2% due to increased resort fees, effective hotel yield management and improved pricing power due to room product enhancements.

"We delivered solid operating performance in the second quarter, including an 8% increase in net revenue and strong income and margin results, excluding the impact of bankruptcy-related charges and CIE stock compensation expense," said Mark Frissora, President and Chief Executive Officer of Caesars Entertainment. "Our second-quarter performance was driven by strong results in Las Vegas lodging, exemplified by a 6.5% increase in RevPAR, as well as entertainment and continued strength in the social and mobile games business."

"Additionally, our productivity efforts have improved our revenue per employee and marketing efficiency, as we drive further margin improvement and cash flow while maintaining high levels of employee and customer satisfaction," concluded Frissora.

Summary Financial Data

The results of CEOC and its subsidiaries are no longer consolidated with Caesars subsequent to CEOC and certain of its United States subsidiaries (the "Debtors") voluntarily filing for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code (the "Bankruptcy Code") on January 15, 2015.

In the table below, "Continuing CEC" represents CERP, CGP Casinos, CIE, other non-operating subsidiaries and associated parent company and elimination adjustments that represent the Caesars consolidated reporting entity as of June 30, 2016, and for subsequent periods.

Second Quarter 2016 Financial Results

We view each casino property and CIE as operating segments and currently aggregate all such casino properties and CIE into three reportable segments based on management's view of these properties which aligns with their own ownership and underlying credit structures: CERP, Caesars Growth Partners Casino Properties and Developments ("CGP Casinos"), and CIE. CGP Casinos is comprised of all subsidiaries of CGP excluding CIE. CIE is comprised of the subsidiaries that operate CGP's social and mobile games operations, regulated online real money gaming, and the World Series of Poker ("WSOP"). CEOC was a reportable segment until its deconsolidation effective January 15, 2015.

Segment results in this release are presented consistent with the way Caesars management assesses these results and allocates resources, which is a consolidated view that adjusts for the impact of certain transactions between reportable segments within Caesars, as described below. Accordingly, the results of certain reportable segments presented in this filing differ from the financial statement information presented in their stand-alone filings. "Other" includes parent, consolidating, and other adjustments to reconcile to consolidated Caesars results. All comparisons are to the same period of the previous year.

About Caesars Entertainment

Caesars Entertainment is the world's most diversified casino-entertainment provider and the most geographically diverse U.S. casino-entertainment company. CEC is mainly comprised of the following three entities: wholly owned Caesars Entertainment Resort Properties ("CERP"), Caesars Growth Partners, LLC ("CGP"), in which we hold a variable economic interest, and the majority owned operating subsidiary Caesars Entertainment Operating Company ("CEOC") (which was deconsolidated effective January 15, 2015 due to its bankruptcy filing). Since its beginning in Reno, Nevada, in 1937, CEC has grown through development of new resorts, expansions and acquisitions. The Caesars system of properties now operates 47 casinos in 13 U.S. states and five countries. CERP and CGP operate a total of 12 casinos. CEC's resorts operate primarily under the Caesars®, Harrah's®, and Horseshoe® brand names. CEOC's portfolio also includes the Caesars Entertainment UK (formerly London Clubs International) family of casinos.

The Caesars system of properties is focused on building loyalty and value with its guests through a unique combination of great service, excellent products, unsurpassed distribution, operational excellence, and technology leadership. The Company is committed to system-wide environmental sustainability and energy conservation and recognizes the importance of being a responsible steward of the environment. For more information, please visit www.caesars.com.

Caesars Entertainment Corporation is primarily a holding company with no independent operations of its own. It owns Caesars Entertainment Resort Properties, LLC ("CERP"), an interest in Caesars Growth Partners, LLC ("CGP") and various other non-operating subsidiaries. It also has majority ownership of Caesars Entertainment Operating Company, Inc. ("CEOC"). The results of CEOC and its subsidiaries are no longer consolidated with CEC subsequent to CEOC's Chapter 11 filing on January 15, 2015. Caesars Enterprise Services, LLC ("CES") provides certain enterprise services to properties owned and/or operated by CERP, CGP, and CEOC, and this press release at times refers to system-wide trends and dynamics, inclusive of CEOC and its subsidiaries. In the discussion in this release, the word "CEC" refers to Caesars Entertainment Corporation without its consolidated entities, and the words "Company," "Caesars," "Caesars Entertainment," "Continuing CEC," "we," and "our" refer to Caesars Entertainment Corporation and its consolidated entities, and not CEOC unless otherwise stated or the context requires otherwise.
