LAS VEGAS, Nov. 9, 2015 -- Caesars Entertainment Corporation (NASDAQ: CZR) today reported third quarter 2015 results as summarized in the discussion below, which highlights certain GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures on a consolidated basis.

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. 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.

"We are pleased with our continued strong performance system-wide in the third quarter, delivering our third consecutive quarter of EBITDA growth as well as our highest quarterly EBITDA margins since 2007, and industry-leading Las Vegas strip margins," said Mark Frissora, President and CEO of Caesars Entertainment. "The enterprise had solid fundamental business improvement driven by Las Vegas revenue performance and increased marketing and operational efficiencies. We remain focused on a balanced agenda of growth and efficiency initiatives to continue to fuel margin expansion and cash flow, supplemented by targeted capital investments to drive higher room rates in the Las Vegas region. We are confident that our strategy will increase value for our stakeholders over the long-term."

Highlights

  • Net revenues for Continuing CEC increased 12.4% year-over-year to $1.1 billion mainly due to a full quarter of Horseshoe Baltimore results, the expansion of resort fees, favorable hold, and continued strong performance at Caesars Interactive Entertainment ("CIE").
  • Adjusted EBITDA for Continuing CEC grew 51.0% year-over-year to $317 million primarily driven by marketing and operational efficiencies and hotel customer mix improvement resulting in strong flow through from top-line growth.
  • CERP results reflect strong hotel performance with increased room revenues driven by cash ADR growth from resort fees and improved hotel customer mix, in addition to operating and marketing efficiencies.
  • CGP performance attributable to a full quarter of Horseshoe Baltimore, strong results in CIE's social and mobile games business, resort fees, and the renovation of The LINQ Hotel & Casino.

Effective January 15, 2015, CEC deconsolidated CEOC subsequent to its voluntarily filing for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code. As such, all amounts presented in this earnings release exclude the operating results of CEOC subsequent to January 15, 2015. Prior period results have not been recast to reflect the deconsolidation of CEOC.

Because CEOC operating results for 2015 are not comparable with 2014 as a result of CEOC's deconsolidation, the analysis of our operating results in this release will include discussion of the components that remain in the consolidated CEC entity subsequent to the deconsolidation of CEOC. 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 structure as of September 30, 2015, and for subsequent periods.
