Additional Highlights:

In the 2012 third quarter, revenues increased 2.8% or $8.3 million year over year to $304.2 million.

Anthony Sanfilippo, President and Chief Executive Officer of Pinnacle Entertainment, commented, "Our third quarter is highlighted by the opening of L'Auberge Baton Rouge, a terrific addition to the Pinnacle Entertainment portfolio of properties. Our Company delivered very strong financial performance in the third quarter and achieved several operational milestones. L'Auberge Lake Charles produced all-time records in gaming revenue, non-gaming revenue, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin during the third quarter. Impressively, this performance was achieved despite the impact that Hurricane Isaac had on L'Auberge Lake Charles and our other Louisiana properties. Furthermore, St. Louis produced the strongest year over year improvement in Adjusted EBITDA in the Company's portfolio and achieved record Adjusted EBITDA margins in the third quarter. 

"While Hurricane Isaac caused us to briefly delay our scheduled opening, we proudly unveiled L'Auberge Baton Rouge to a robust crowd of guests on September 1. We are very pleased with the reception of the property from our guests that have visited L'Auberge Baton Rouge. In particular, the feedback we have received on its quality, and most importantly, the high level of service they are receiving from our Baton Rouge team members, has been very positive. We greatly appreciate the commitment of our team members in providing a top quality experience to our guests in Baton Rouge.

"So far, we are very pleased with the performance of L'Auberge Baton Rouge. The property is well on its way to establishing itself as a high quality regional gaming and entertainment destination. Since opening, the property has achieved over 48,000 mychoice player loyalty card sign-ups, over 267,000 casino admissions, and very strong non-gaming revenue performance.

"With these initial encouraging results, we will continue our efforts of methodically focusing on building profitable revenue through the use of this unique regional property's entertainment destination amenities, along with the charm and excitement of the greater Baton Rouge region."

Third Quarter Operational Overview

L'Auberge Lake Charles 2012 third quarter revenues increased $1.4 million or 1.4% year over year to $99.5 million, while Adjusted EBITDA increased $1.9 million or 6.3% year over year to a record $31.5 million. Adjusted EBITDA margin at the property expanded 146 basis points year over year to a record 31.7%. 2012 third quarter performance was driven by record gaming and cash non-gaming revenues, as well as more efficient marketing, and occurred despite disruption to business volumes from Hurricane Isaac. 

In the St. Louis segment, revenue for the 2012 third quarter was unchanged year over year at $98.5 million. Adjusted EBITDA rose 14.3% or $3.2 million year over year to $25.5 million. Adjusted EBITDA margin(2) in St. Louis increased 322 basis points year over year to 25.9% in the 2012 third quarter. 2012 third quarter performance was driven by more efficient marketing and general operating expense discipline.

Mr. Sanfilippo commented, "Pinnacle's properties in St. Louis and Lake Charles continue to make great progress in improving its operating outcomes. Our best in class properties and talented team members are achieving remarkable results."

Belterra's third quarter 2012 revenues declined $0.5 million or 1.2% to $41.6 million, while Adjusted EBITDA increased $1.2 million or 13.9% year over year to $9.9 million. Adjusted EBITDA margin increased 316 basis points year over year to 23.8%. Belterra's 2012 third quarter performance was driven by a focus on removing non-value added expenses from the business.

Boomtown New Orleans revenues declined $4.2 million or 13.1% year over year to $27.9 million in the 2012 third quarter, while Adjusted EBITDA declined $2.5 million or 24.8% to $7.7 million. Adjusted EBITDA margin at the property was down 432 basis points year over year to 27.6% in the 2012 third quarter. New Orleans performance was negatively impacted by Hurricane Isaac and generally difficult market conditions. Notwithstanding the hurricane impact, underlying property trends improved throughout the third quarter.

Continuing on the performance of Boomtown New Orleans, Mr. Sanfilippo added, "We are dissatisfied with the performance of Boomtown New Orleans and are in the process of implementing changes to the property's operating strategy to drive profitable revenue growth. We are confident, through key operating changes, in our ability to improve New Orleans' performance in the coming quarters."

Boomtown Bossier City revenues declined $1.3 million or 6.2% year over year to $19.8 million in the 2012 third quarter, while Adjusted EBITDA decreased $0.4 million or 7.7% to $4.3 million. Adjusted EBITDA margin at the property was down 37 basis points year over year to 21.5% in the 2012 third quarter.

L'Auberge Baton Rouge revenue was $13.1 million in its inaugural month of operation, while Adjusted EBITDA was $1.5 million. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 11.4% in the 2012 third quarter.

Corporate overhead expenses declined $0.6 million or 9.6% year over year to $5.6 million in the 2012 third quarter. The reduction in 2012 third quarter corporate overhead expense was driven principally by efforts to eliminate non-value added expenses at the Company's Las Vegas headquarters, as well as a ramp up of cost savings and property allocations related to the Company's shared service centers supporting our properties in the Midwest and Louisiana.  

Baton Rouge Opens, Development Pipeline Advances, and ACDL Investment in Place

Carlos Ruisanchez, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Pinnacle Entertainment, commented, "We are pleased to have L'Auberge Baton Rouge now as an operating asset. The property is beautiful and should bring meaningful value to our shareholders for years to come. We remain focused on the additional growth projects in our pipeline, namely the River Downs redevelopment, River City Expansion, and the addition of guest rooms in New Orleans.

"We are excited about the prospects for the new gaming entertainment facility we plan to develop at River Downs. Our plans call for a gaming entertainment facility comprising approximately 1,600 video lottery terminals, multiple food and beverage outlets, over 1,600 parking spaces and new racing facilities. We expect the project to cost $209 million, excluding license fees, original acquisition costs and capitalized interest, and plan to open the facility in the first half of 2014. 

"We continue to make progress on our expansion of River City in St. Louis. The 1,600 space parking structure is nearing completion and is expected to open by the Thanksgiving holiday weekend next month. Construction of the second phase of this expansion, a 200-room hotel and multi-purpose event center, has commenced with an expected completion date in the second half of 2013. Property management has done a great job of mitigating construction disruption during the quarter and we believe the addition of the parking garage, hotel and event center will meaningfully enhance River City's competitive positioning and cash flow generation."

As previously announced, in New Orleans, construction of a $20 million, 150-room hotel is expected to begin by the end of 2012 and is targeted for completion by the end of 2013. Mr. Ruisanchez added, "The New Orleans hotel addition will provide access to a broader market opportunity for this property and we expect it to yield a return in excess of our baseline financial hurdle rates."

ACDL continues to make significant progress with Phase 1A of the MGM Grand Ho Tram project in Vietnam and the property remains on track to open by the end of first quarter 2013. As previously announced, in August the company entered into an agreement to invest $15.6 million in ACDL as part of its $60 million convertible preferred total capital raise. As a result of this commitment, Pinnacle Entertainment maintained its 26% ownership in ACDL. To date, ACDL has received approximately $54 million of the $60 million total capital raise, inclusive of $14 million contributed to ACDL by Pinnacle Entertainment. The balance is expected to close and be funded in the 2012 fourth quarter.

Liquidity and Capital Expenditures

At September 30, 2012 the Company had approximately $144.4 million in cash and cash equivalents, with an estimated $70.0 million of which to be used in day-to-day operations. As of the end of the 2012 third quarter, the Company's $410 million revolving credit facility was undrawn and approximately $8.8 million of letters of credit were outstanding.

Capital expenditures totaled approximately $102.8 million during the 2012 third quarter, including $81.2 million related to L'Auberge Baton Rouge and $9.8 million for the River City expansion. Through September 30, 2012, the Company has incurred approximately $351.1 million of the $368 million budget for L'Auberge Baton Rouge, excluding land costs and capitalized interest, and $23 million of the $82 million budget for the River City expansion.

Interest Expense

Gross interest expense before capitalized interest was $29.2 million in the 2012 third quarter versus $27.1 million in the prior year period. Capitalized interest in the 2012 third quarter was $6.0 million versus $2.9 million in the prior year period. Other non-operating income was $0.3 million in the 2012 third quarter and $0.1 million in the prior year period. The increase in capitalized interest in the 2012 third quarter is attributable to additional investment in L'Auberge Baton Rouge and the River City expansion, as well as the Company's investment in ACDL. The Company ceased capitalizing interest expense on L'Auberge Baton Rouge in September 2012.

Discontinued Operations

Discontinued operations consist of the Company's Atlantic City, New Jersey land and Reno excess land; its former Boomtown Reno operations; its former President Riverboat Casino in St. Louis, Missouri; its former Casino Magic Argentina operations; its former Casino Magic Biloxi, Mississippi operations; and its former Bahamian operations. For the three months ended September 30, 2012, the Company recorded a loss of $7.1 million, net of income taxes, related to its discontinued operations.

(1) Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA, Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted net income (loss), and Adjusted income (loss) per share are non-GAAP measurements. The Company defines Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest income and expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, pre-opening and development expenses, non-cash share-based compensation, asset impairment costs, write-downs, reserves, recoveries, corporate-level litigation settlement costs, gain (loss) on sale of certain assets, loss on early extinguishment of debt, gain (loss) on sale of equity security investments, minority interest and discontinued operations. The Company defines Adjusted net income (loss) as net income (loss) before pre-opening and development expenses, asset impairment costs, write-downs, reserves, recoveries, corporate-level litigation settlement costs, gain (loss) on sale of certain assets, gain (loss) on early extinguishment of debt, minority interest and discontinued operations. The Company defines Adjusted income (loss) per share as Adjusted net income (loss) divided by the weighted-average number of shares of the Company's common stock outstanding. The Company defines Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA margin as Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA divided by revenues on a consolidated basis. Not all of the aforementioned benefits and costs occur in each reporting period, but have been included in the definition based on historical activity.

The Company uses Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA and Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA margin as relevant and useful measures to compare operating results between accounting periods. The presentation of Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA has economic substance because it is used by management as a performance measure to analyze the performance of its business and is especially relevant in evaluating large, long-lived casino-hotel projects because it provides a perspective on the current effects of operating decisions separated from the substantial, non-operational depreciation charges and financing costs of such projects. Management eliminates the results from discontinued operations as they are discontinued. Management also reviews pre-opening and development expenses separately, as such expenses are also included in total project costs when assessing budgets and project returns, and because such costs relate to anticipated future revenues and income. Management believes some investors consider Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA to be a useful measure in determining a company's ability to service or incur indebtedness, service debt, and fund capital expenditures, acquisitions and operations and for estimating a company's underlying cash flows from operations before capital costs, taxes and capital expenditures. These calculations are commonly used as a basis for investors, analysts and credit rating agencies to evaluate and compare operating performance and value of companies within our industry.  Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA also approximates the measures used in the debt covenants within the Company's debt agreements. Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA does not include depreciation or interest expense and therefore does not reflect current or future capital expenditures or the cost of capital. The Company compensates for these limitations by using other comparative measures to assist in the evaluation of operating performance.

Adjusted net income (loss) is presented solely as supplemental disclosure, as this is one method that management reviews and uses to analyze the performance of its core operating business. For many of the same reasons mentioned above relating to Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA, management believes Adjusted net income (loss) and Adjusted income (loss) per share are useful analytic tools as they enable management to track the performance of its core casino operating business separate and apart from factors that do not impact decisions affecting its operating casino properties, such as impairments of intangible assets or costs associated with the Company's development activities. Management believes Adjusted net income (loss) and Adjusted income (loss) per share are useful to investors since these adjustments provide a measure of performance that more closely resembles widely used measures of performance and valuation in the gaming industry. Adjusted net income (loss) and Adjusted income (loss) per share do not include the costs of the Company's development activities, certain asset sale gains, or the costs of its refinancing activities, but the Company compensates for these limitations by using other comparative measures to assist in evaluating the performance of its business. 

EBITDA measures, such as Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA and Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted net income (loss) and Adjusted income (loss) per share are not calculated in the same manner by all companies and, accordingly, may not be an appropriate measure of comparing performance among different companies. See the attached "supplemental information" tables for a reconciliation of Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA to Income (loss) from continuing operations, a reconciliation of GAAP net income to Adjusted net income (loss), a reconciliation of GAAP income (loss) per share to Adjusted income (loss) per share and a reconciliation of Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA margin to Income (loss) from continuing operations margin.

(2) Definition of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin for Operating Segments

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA for each operating segment as earnings before interest income and expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, pre-opening and development expenses, non-cash share-based compensation, asset impairment costs, write-downs, reserves, recoveries, gain (loss) on sale of certain assets, gain (loss) on early extinguishment of debt, gain (loss) on sale of discontinued operations, and discontinued operations. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA margin for each operating segment as Adjusted EBITDA divided by revenues for such segment. The Company uses Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin to compare operating results among its properties and between accounting periods.
