In the fourth quarter 2015, net revenue, Adjusted EBITDA and net income grew significantly compared to the prior year as a result of the Big Fish Games acquisition. Net revenue growth also benefited from an increase in TwinSpires handle and from organic growth at our Oxford Casino property. The Adjusted EBITDA growth also benefited from cost reductions in our Racing and Casinos segments and from a correction in the Corporate segment related to deferred compensation. The increase in net income for the quarter was a result of strong Adjusted EBITDA growth partially offset by higher depreciation, amortization and income tax expense.

In 2015, net revenue, Adjusted EBITDA and net income grew significantly compared to the prior year as a result of the Big Fish Games acquisition. Net revenue growth also benefited from a record setting Kentucky Oaks and Derby week, a 7.5% increase in TwinSpires handle and organic growth at our Oxford Casino. The Adjusted EBITDA growth also benefited from cost reductions in the racing segment as a result of the cessation of Calder pari-mutuel operations and cost controls in our Casinos. The increase in net income for 2015 was driven by strong Adjusted EBITDA growth and a correction in the Corporate segment related to deferred compensation that was partially offset by Big Fish Games related adjustments, Calder racing exit costs, depreciation, amortization, interest expense and income tax expense.

Net revenue$29.9 $30.4 $248.6 $261.5
Adjusted EBITDA (4.4) (5.4) 71.8 61.1

For the quarter, net revenue decreased $0.5 million as a strong Churchill Downs Fall Meet and growth at Fair Grounds was more than offset by lower net revenue at Arlington. Adjusted EBITDA increased $1.0 million driven primarily by a strong Churchill Downs Fall Meet.

For the full year, net revenue decreased $12.9 million primarily driven by a $17.3 million reduction as a result of the July 2014 cessation of pari-mutuel operations at Calder and a $6.6 million decrease in Arlington net revenue driven by fewer live race days resulting in lower attendance and pari-mutuel handle. Partially offsetting these declines was an increase in net revenue from a record Kentucky Oaks and Derby week. Adjusted EBITDA for 2015 increased $10.7 million due to $6.0 million of increased profitability from Kentucky Oaks and Derby week, $3.8 million due to the cessation of pari-mutuel operations at Calder during 2014, $1.5 million from Churchill Downs outside of Derby week and $0.3 million from Fair Grounds. These increases were partially offset by a $0.9 million decrease due to lower pari-mutuel net revenue at Arlington.

Adjusted EBITDA 26.7 22.7 108.5 101.1

During the quarter, Casinos net revenue increased $1.9 million from the prior year primarily driven by organic growth at Oxford Casino and growth in our VSI net revenue from the addition of new and upgraded video poker machines throughout our Louisiana properties. Partially offsetting this growth was a decline in net revenue at our Mississippi properties and a decline at Fair Grounds Slots from a smoking ban in Orleans Parish. Adjusted EBITDA grew $4.0 million from the strength of the Oxford Casino and VSI properties as well as increases for both our Mississippi properties resulting from effective cost controls.

For the full year, Casinos net revenue increased $4.0 million driven by organic growth at Oxford Casino, improved performance of our VSI locations in Louisiana, and increased net revenue from Calder. This growth was partially offset by the impact of the New Orleans smoking ban on our Fair Grounds Slots property and a decline in net revenue from our Mississippi properties. Adjusted EBITDA increased $7.4 million in 2015 driven by a $2.7 million increase at Oxford Casino as a result of strong net revenue trends, a $2.5 million increase at Riverwalk as a result of disciplined labor and other variable expense reductions, a $1.4 million increase at Miami Valley Gaming from growth despite new competition and a $1.2 million increase from VSI market share growth. Partially offsetting these increases was a $1.7 million decrease at Fair Grounds Slots as a result of the parish-wide smoking ban on April 22, 2015.

Adjusted EBITDA 9.9 10.1 51.5 45.3

During the quarter, net revenue improved $2.9 million due to a 10.8% increase in handle compared to a total industry increase of 2.3%. Adjusted EBITDA declined $0.2 million as net revenue growth was more than offset with higher marketing expense related to the Breeders’ Cup, higher New York taxes and licensing and regulatory costs in Virginia.

For the full year, net revenue grew $9.9 million primarily due to a 7.5% increase in handle compared to a total industry increase of 1.2%. Partially offsetting this increase was a decline related to the cancellation of a low-margin, third party administrative call center agreement. Adjusted EBITDA increased $6.3 million from the strong net revenue growth and from lower expense as a result of the discontinuation of Luckity, our online real-money bingo operation. These increases were partially offset by higher marketing expense related to marquee racing events in 2015 and from higher pari-mutuel tax rates.

In the fourth quarter 2015 and for the full year 2015, net revenue and Adjusted EBITDA for Big Fish Games grew significantly compared to the prior year as a result of the acquisition in December 2014. Big Fish Games net revenue includes amounts recognized from its social casino, casual and mid-core free-to-play and premium paid games. Our net revenue is reflective of the strong growth in our casual free-to-play bookings and ongoing growth in the Big Fish Casino platform. Our 2015 net revenue includes a $20.8 million reduction resulting from the adjustment down to fair value of the deferred revenue balance assumed as part of the Big Fish acquisition based on business combination accounting rules.

For the quarter, total bookings grew $25.7 million or 27% on a comparative basis over the full fourth quarter 2014 bookings. Casino and Casual Free-to-Play business lines continued to show growth more than offsetting the decline in the Premium business line. Casino bookings grew by $1.2 million, driven by a 15% increase in average bookings per paying user compared to the fourth quarter of 2014, which was partially offset by an 11% decline in average paying users. Casual Free-to-Play bookings’ growth of $31.2 million was driven by a 132% increase in quarterly average paying users and a 26% increase in average bookings per paying user. Our growth in Casual Free-to-Play bookings was driven by the continued success of Gummy Drop!, as well as the late third quarter launch of Dungeon Boss. Premium bookings declined $6.7 million, or 21%, primarily driven by customers continuing to shift from paid PC games to free-to-play mobile games. In addition, the foreign currency impact from the strengthening U.S. dollar (USD) reduced Premium bookings by $1.1 million.

For the full year, total bookings grew $117.1 million or 35% on a comparative basis over the full year 2014. Casino bookings grew by $35.9 million, driven by a 12% increase in average paying users and a 10% increase in average bookings per paying user compared to the full year of 2014. Casual Free-to-Play bookings’ growth of $112.6 million was driven by a 165% increase in average paying users and a 48% increase in average bookings per paying user. Our growth in Casual Free-to-Play bookings was driven by the continued success of Gummy Drop!, as well as the late third quarter launch of Dungeon Boss. Premium bookings declined $31.0 million, or 22%, primarily driven by customers continuing to shift from paid PC games to free-to-play mobile games. In addition, the foreign currency impact from the strengthening U.S. dollar (USD) reduced Premium bookings by $5.7 million.

Stock Repurchase

In February 2016, the board of directors reauthorized a common stock repurchase program of up to $150 million. The new program replaces the prior $150 million program that was authorized during 2015 and had unused authorization of $11.9 million. The new authorized amount includes and is not in addition to any unspent amounts remaining under the prior authorization. Repurchases may be made at management’s discretion from time to time on the open market (either with or without a 10b5-1 plan) or through privately negotiated transactions. The repurchase program has no time limit and may be suspended or discontinued at any time.
