CENTURY CASINOS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited)

 

1.DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

Century Casinos, Inc. (“CCI” or the “Company”) is an international casino entertainment company. As of March 31, 2015, the Company owned casino operations in North America, managed cruise ship-based casinos on international and Alaskan waters, held a majority ownership interest in nine casinos throughout Poland, had a management contract to manage the casino in the Radisson Aruba Resort, Casino & Spa, was developing a racetrack and entertainment center (“REC”) in Canada, had an agreement to provide gaming services in Argentina, and had formed a company to operate the pari-mutuel network in Southern Alberta, Canada. 

 

The Company currently owns, operates and manages the following casinos through wholly-owned subsidiaries in North America:

 

 

 

-  

The Century Casino & Hotel in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada;

-  

The Century Casino Calgary, Alberta, Canada;

-

The Century Casino & Hotel in Central City, Colorado; and

-

The Century Casino & Hotel in Cripple Creek, Colorado.

 

In March 2007, the Company’s subsidiary Century Casinos Europe GmbH (“CCE”) acquired 33.3% of the outstanding shares issued by Casinos Poland Ltd (“CPL” or “Casinos Poland”) and the Company accounted for the investment under the equity method. In April 2013, CCE acquired from LOT Polish Airlines an additional 33.3% ownership interest in CPL. As of the date of acquisition, the Company began consolidating its 66.6% ownership of CPL as a majority-owned subsidiary for which it has a controlling financial interest. Polish Airports Company (“Polish Airports”) owns the remaining 33.3% of CPL. The Company accounts for and reports the 33.3% Polish Airports ownership interest as a non-controlling financial interest.

 

The Company operates 16 ship-based casinos onboard the ships of the following five cruise lines: Oceania Cruises (“Oceania”), TUI Cruises, Windstar Cruises, Regent Seven Seas Cruises (“Regent”) and Nova Star Cruises Ltd.  

In May 2014, Windstar Cruises launched the Star Pride, the first of three newly acquired all suite cruise ships. The Company operates the ship-based casino onboard this ship. Windstar Cruises is planning to begin operations on the other two vessels in May 2015, and we expect to operate the ship-based casinos onboard each ship.

 

In February 2014, the Company signed an exclusive agreement with Nova Star Cruises Ltd. to operate a ship-based casino onboard the Nova Star, a round trip cruise ferry service connecting Portland, Maine and Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. The ferry began operations on May 15, 2014 and operates on a seasonal basis.  The 2015 season is scheduled to begin in June 2015.

 

In June 2014, TUI Cruises launched the Mein Schiff 3 and the Company currently operates the ship-based casino onboard this ship. Also, in November 2014, the Company amended its concession agreement with TUI Cruises to include its operation of the ship-based casino onboard the Mein Schiff 4, a new 2,500 passenger ship that is currently being constructed.  TUI Cruises plans to launch the Mein Schiff 4 in June 2015.

 

In March 2015, the Company mutually agreed with Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings (“Norwegian”) to terminate its concession agreements with Oceania and Regent, indirect subsidiaries of Norwegian, effective June 1, 2015 (the “Termination Agreement”). The Company will transition operations of the eight ship-based casinos that it currently operates onboard Oceania and Regent vessels to Norwegian in April and May 2015 depending on the sailing schedules of the ships. The Company also entered into a two-year consulting agreement, which will become effective on June 1, 2015, under which the Company will provide limited consulting services for the ship-based casinos of Oceania and Regent. See Note 8 for additional information related to the Termination Agreement.

In November 2012, CCE signed credit and management agreements with United Horsemen of Alberta Inc. dba Century Downs Racetrack and Casino ("CDR" or “Century Downs”) in connection with the development and operation of a REC in Balzac, north metropolitan area of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, which the Company operates as Century Downs Racetrack and Casino. On November 29, 2013, CCE and CDR amended the credit agreement. Under the amended credit agreement, CCE acquired 15% of CDR, controls the CDR board of directors, manages the development of the REC project and had the right to convert CAD 11 million that the Company had loaned to CDR into an additional 60% ownership interest in CDR. The Company began consolidating CDR as a minority owned subsidiary for which it has a controlling financial interest on November 29, 2013. On March 20, 2015, the Company converted CAD 11 million of loans made to CDR into an additional 60% ownership interest in CDR. Unaffiliated shareholders own the remaining 25% of CDR, and the Company accounts for and reports the 25% CDR ownership interest as a non-controlling financial interest. See Note 3 for additional information related to CDR.  The casino at the REC opened on April 1, 2015, and the racing season started on April 25, 2015.

 

In October 2014, CCE entered into an agreement (the “MCE Agreement”) with Gambling and Entertainment LLC and its affiliates, pursuant to which CCE purchased 7.5% of the shares of Mendoza Central Entretenimientos S.A., a company formed in Argentina (“MCE”), for $1.0 million. Pursuant to the MCE Agreement, CCE will work with MCE to utilize MCE’s exclusive concession agreement with Instituto Provincial de Juegos y Casinos to lease slot machines and provide related services to Mendoza Casino, a casino located in Mendoza, Argentina, and owned by the Province of Mendoza. MCE may also pursue other gaming opportunities. Under the MCE Agreement, CCE has appointed one director to MCE’s board of directors. In addition, CCE has a three-year option to purchase up to 50% of the shares of MCE. The Company reports its 7.5% ownership interest in MCE using the cost method of accounting and reports the $1.0 million investment on the condensed consolidated balance sheet. See Note 4 for additional information related to MCE.

 

In October 2014, CCE and MCE also entered into a Consulting Services Agreement pursuant to which CCE will provide advice on casino matters. Through the Consulting Services Agreement, CCE receives a service fee consisting of a fixed fee plus a percentage of MCE’s EBITDA.

 

In December 2014, the Company announced that it had been selected by Horse Racing Alberta (“HRA”) to operate the pari-mutuel off-track horse betting network in Southern Alberta beginning in 2015. On January 6, 2015, the Company formed a new subsidiary, Century Bets! Inc. (“CBS”), together with Rocky Mountain Turf Club (“RMTC”), to operate the off-track betting network. The Company owns a 75% ownership interest in CBS, and RMTC owns a 25% ownership interest in CBS. CBS began operating the pari-mutuel network on  May 4, 2015. See Note 4 for additional information related to CBS. The Company accounts for and reports RMTC’s 25% ownership interest as a non-controlling financial interest.

Presentation of Foreign Currency Amounts

 

The Company’s functional currency is the U.S. dollar (“USD” or “$”).  Foreign subsidiaries with a functional currency other than the U.S. dollar translate assets and liabilities at current exchange rates at the end of the reporting periods, while income and expense accounts are translated at average exchange rates for the respective periods.  The Company and its subsidiaries enter into various transactions made in currencies different from their functional currencies.  These transactions are typically denominated in the Canadian dollar (“CAD”), Euro (“EUR”) and Polish zloty (“PLN”).  Gains and losses resulting from changes in foreign currency exchange rates related to these transactions are included in income from operations as they occur. 

 

The exchange rates to the U.S. dollar used to translate balances at the end of the reported periods are as follows:

2. RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

 

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“ASU 2014‑09”).  The objective of ASU 2014-09 is to clarify the principles for recognizing revenue and to develop a common revenue standard for US GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards.  ASU 2014‑09 is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2016.  Early adoption of ASU 2014-09 is not permitted. In April 2015, the FASB tentatively decided to defer for one year the effective date of ASU 2014-09, which will extend the effective date for public entities to annual reporting periods beginning on or after December 15, 2017, and to permit early adoption of the standard as of the original effective date of ASU 2014-09. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting ASU 2014‑09, but does not expect the standard to have a significant effect on its consolidated financial statements. 

 

In August 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-15, Presentation of Financial Statements – Going Concern (“ASU 2014-15”). The objective of ASU 2014-15 is to provide guidance on management’s responsibility to evaluate whether there is substantial doubt about a company’s ability to continue as a going concern and to provide related footnote disclosures. ASU 2014-15 is effective for fiscal years ending after December 15, 2016, and annual and interim periods thereafter. The Company has assessed the new standard and does not expect this standard to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

 

12


 

 

In January 2015, the FASB issues ASU No. 2015-01, Income Statement – Extraordinary and Unusual Items: Simplifying Income Statement Presentation by Eliminating the Concept of Extraordinary Items (“ASU 2015-01”).  The objective of ASU 2015-01 is to eliminate from US GAAP the concept of an extraordinary item. ASU 2015-01 is effective for fiscal years ending after December 15, 2015, and interim periods within those annual periods. The Company has assessed the new standard and does not expect this standard to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

In February 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-02, Consolidation: Amendments to the Consolidation Analysis (“ASU 2015-02).  The objective of ASU 2015-02 is to change the consolidation analysis required under US GAAP. ASU 2015-02 is effective for fiscal years ending after December 15, 2015, and annual and interim periods thereafter.  Early adoption of ASU 2015-02 is permitted. The Company is continuing to assess the new standard but does not expect this standard to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

3.CENTURY DOWNS RACETRACK AND CASINO

 

In November 2012, the Company’s subsidiary CCE signed credit and management agreements with CDR in connection with the development of a  REC project in Balzac, north metropolitan area of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, which the Company operates as Century Downs Racetrack and Casino. On November 29, 2013, CCE and CDR amended the credit agreement. Under the amended credit agreement, CCE agreed to loan to CDR a total of CAD 24 million in two separate loans, Loan A and Loan B. Loan A is for CAD 13 million and Loan B is for CAD 11 million. Loan A has an interest rate of BMO prime plus 600 basis points and a term of five years, and CAD 11 million of the loan was convertible at CCE’s option into an additional ownership position in CDR of up to 60%. Loan B has an interest rate equivalent to the rate charged under the Bank of Montreal Credit Agreement (“BMO Credit Agreement”) plus an administrative fee and a term of five years. CCE has advanced all funds from Loan A, and any remaining funds that are advanced to CDR will be advanced under Loan B. Both loans are secured by a leasehold mortgage on the REC property and a pledge of CDR’s stock by the majority of the CDR shareholders. Both loans are for the exclusive use of developing and operating the REC project. CCE intends to fund both loans with additional borrowings under the BMO Credit Agreement (Note 7).   Under the amended credit agreement with CDR, CCE acquired 15% of CDR, controls the CDR board of directors and manages the development and operation of the REC project.

 

As of November 29, 2013, the Company began consolidating CDR as a minority owned subsidiary for which it has a controlling financial interest. On March 20, 2015, the Company converted CAD 11 million of Loan A into an additional 60% ownership interest in CDR. As of March 20, 2015, the Company had a 75% ownership interest in CDR.  Unaffiliated shareholders own the remaining 25% of CDR. The Company accounts for and reports the remaining 25% CDR ownership interest as a non-controlling financial interest.

 

The REC project has the only horse race track in the Calgary area and consists of a 5.5 furlongs (0.7 mile) racetrack, a gaming floor with 550 slot machines, a bar, a lounge, restaurant facilities, an off-track-betting area and an entertainment area. The Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (“AGLC”) and HRA have issued licenses to the REC.  The casino at the REC opened on April 1, 2015, and the racing season began on April 25, 2015.  

 

Contingent Liability

In February 2013, 1369454 Alberta Ltd filed a lawsuit against CDR for previously owed money not paid by CDR.  The case was settled in April 2013, and CDR issued a promissory note to pay 1369454 Alberta Ltd. CAD 0.2 million ($0.2 million based on the exchange rate in effect on March 31, 2015).  CDR paid 1369454 Alberta Ltd. CAD 0.2 million in satisfaction of the promissory note on April 2, 2015.

 

Restricted Cash

The Company’s subsidiary CCE loaned $0.2 million to CDR in December 2013 to pay outstanding Canadian federal tax owed by CDR. The unsecured note was paid on December 4, 2014 and had a 4% interest rate. The note was paid following the release of $0.2 million of restricted cash from escrow held with a third party in connection with CDR’s land lease in December 2014.  

 

 

13


 

 

Equity Conversion

On March 20, 2015, the Company converted CAD 11 million of Loan A into an additional 60% ownership interest in CDR. As a result of the conversion, the Company recognized $0.6 million in additional paid-in capital and $0.1 million in accumulated other comprehensive income that was previously attributed to non-controlling interest.

 

 

 

4.ACQUISITIONS AND INVESTMENTS

 

Mendoza Central Entretenimientos S.A.

On October 31, 2014, CCE entered into the MCE Agreement with Gambling and Entertainment LLC and its affiliates, pursuant to which CCE purchased 7.5% of the shares of MCE, a company formed in Argentina, for $1.0 million. Pursuant to the MCE Agreement, CCE will work with MCE to utilize MCE’s exclusive concession agreement with Instituto Provincial de Juegos y Casinos to lease slot machines and provide related services to Mendoza Casino, a casino located in Mendoza, Argentina, and owned by the Province of Mendoza. MCE may also pursue other gaming opportunities. Under the MCE Agreement, CCE has appointed one director to MCE’s board of directors. In addition, CCE has a three-year option to purchase up to 50% of the shares of MCE and to appoint additional directors to MCE’s board of directors based on its ownership percentage of MCE.

 

The Company accounts for the $1.0 million investment in MCE using the cost method. Acquisition costs of $0.2 million were incurred for the year ended December 31, 2014 in connection with the MCE investment. These costs include legal and accounting fees and have been recorded as general and administrative expenses in the fourth quarter of 2014.

 

Century Bets! Inc.

On January 6, 2015, CCE, together with RMTC, formed a new subsidiary, CBS, to operate the pari-mutuel off-track betting network in Southern Alberta. CCE owns a 75% ownership interest in CBS and RMTC owns a 25% ownership interest in CBS. CCE has appointed three directors to the board of directors of CBS. The Company accounts for and reports the 25% ownership interest of RMTC as a non-controlling financial interest.

 

Acquisition costs of less than $0.1 million were incurred in connection with forming CBS. These costs include legal fees and were recorded as general and administrative expenses in the fourth quarter of 2014.

 

 

 

5.GOODWILL AND INTANGIBLE ASSETS

 

Goodwill

We test goodwill for impairment as of October 1 each year, or more frequently as circumstances indicate it is necessary.  Testing compares the estimated fair values of our reporting units to the reporting units’ carrying values.  Our reporting units with goodwill balances as of March 31, 2015 include our Edmonton casino property, CDR’s REC project development activities, and our CPL operations.  We consider a variety of factors when estimating the fair value of our reporting units, including estimates about the future operating results of each reporting unit, multiples of earnings, various market analyses, and recent sales of comparable businesses, if such information is available to us.  The Company makes a variety of estimates and judgments about the relevance and comparability of these factors to the reporting units in estimating their fair values.   If the carrying value of a reporting unit exceeds its estimated fair value, the fair value of each reporting unit is allocated to the reporting unit’s assets and liabilities to determine the implied fair value of the reporting unit’s goodwill and whether impairment is necessary.  No impairment charges related to goodwill have been recorded at our Edmonton property, CDR or CPL.

The Company has determined both trademarks have indefinite useful lives and therefore the Company does not amortize the trademarks. Rather, the Company tests its trademarks for impairment annually or more frequently as circumstances indicate it is necessary. The Company tests trademarks for impairment using the relief-from-royalty method. If the fair value of an indefinite-lived intangible asset is less than its carrying amount, the Company would recognize an impairment charge equal to the difference. No impairment charges related to the Company’s Century Casinos and Casinos Poland trademarks have been recorded.

Casino Licenses

Casinos Poland

Casinos Poland currently has nine casino licenses, each with an original term of six years, which are reported as finite-lived intangible assets on the Company’s consolidated balance sheets.  In June 2014, the Casinos Poland management board decided to suspend operations at the Sosnowiec casino for a limited time. The casino reopened on a limited basis in February 2015, and we expect the casino will continue limited operations until its gaming license expires in May 2017. Based on the decision to suspend operations in June 2014, the Company evaluated the carrying amount of the Sosnowiec casino license and impaired the Sosnowiec casino license and charged $0.2 million to operating costs and expenses in the second quarter of 2014.  Changes in the carrying amount of the Casinos Poland licenses for the three months ended March 31, 2015 are as follows:

CDR currently has two licenses, one from the AGLC and one from HRA.  The licenses were issued in November 2013 pending final approval of the REC project from the AGLC. The AGLC granted the final approval for the licenses on March 19, 2015. The licenses are reported as indefinite lived intangible assets on the Company’s consolidated balance sheets.  No impairment charges related to the CDR licenses have been recorded.

6.PROMOTIONAL ALLOWANCES

 

Hotel accommodations, bowling, food and beverage furnished without charge to customers are included in gross revenue at retail value and are deducted as promotional allowances to arrive at net operating revenue. The Company issues coupons and downloadable promotional credits to customers for the purpose of generating future revenue. The value of coupons and downloadable promotional credits redeemed is applied against the revenue generated on the day of the redemption. The estimated cost of provided promotional allowances is included in casino expenses.

Members of the Company’s casinos’ player clubs earn points based on, among other things, their volume of play at the Company’s casinos. Players can accumulate points over time that they may redeem at their discretion under the terms of the program. The Company records a liability based on the redemption value of the points earned, and records a corresponding reduction in casino revenue. Points can be redeemed for cash,  downloadable promotional credits and/or various amenities at the casino, such as meals, hotel stays and gift shop items. The value of the points is offset against the revenue in the period in which the points were earned. The value of unused or unredeemed points is included in accrued liabilities on the Company’s consolidated balance sheets. The expiration of unused points results in a reduction of the liability. As of March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014, the outstanding balance of this liability was $0.7 and $0.9 million, respectively.

The consolidated weighted average interest rate on all Company debt was 6.98% for the three months ended March 31, 2015. The Company pays a floating interest rate on its borrowings under the BMO Credit Agreement and the current interest rate is approximately 3.85%. The Company pays a weighted average interest rate of 3.80% on its borrowings under the CPL loan agreements. The weighted average interest rate on all Company debt is higher than the 3.85% interest rate of the BMO Credit Agreement and the weighted average interest of 3.80% on the CPL loan agreements due to the CDR financing obligation, on which the Company pays an implicit interest rate of 10.0%.

 

Credit Agreement – Bank of Montreal

In May 2012, the Company, through its Canadian subsidiaries, entered into the CAD 28.0 million credit agreement with the Bank of Montreal. On August 15, 2014, the Company, through its Canadian subsidiaries, entered into an amended and restated BMO Credit Agreement that increased the Company’s borrowing capacity to CAD 39.1 million. As of March 31, 2015, the Company had borrowed CAD 29.4 million, of which the outstanding balance was CAD 26.4 million ($20.8 million based on the exchange rate in effect on March 31, 2015) and the Company had approximately CAD 9.7 million ($7.6 million based on the exchange rate in effect on March 31, 2015) available under the BMO Credit Agreement. The outstanding borrowings cannot be re-borrowed once they are repaid. The Company has used borrowings under the BMO Credit Agreement primarily to repay the Company’s mortgage loan related to the Edmonton property, pay for the additional 33.3% investment in CPL and pay for development costs related to the REC project (Note 3). The Company can also use the proceeds to pursue the development or acquisition of new gaming opportunities and for general corporate purposes. Borrowings bear interest at fixed rates or at BMO’s floating rate plus a margin.  Any funds not drawn down under the BMO Credit Agreement are subject to standby fees ranging from 0.50% to 0.75% payable quarterly in arrears. Standby fees of less than CAD 0.1 million (less than $0.1 million based on the exchange rate in effect on March 31, 2015) were recorded as general and administrative expense in the consolidated statement of earnings for the three months ended March 31, 2015. The BMO Credit Agreement has a term of five years through August 2019 and is guaranteed by the Company. The shares of the Company’s subsidiaries in Edmonton and Calgary and the Company's 75% interest in CDR are pledged as collateral for the BMO Credit Agreement. The BMO Credit Agreement contains a number of financial covenants applicable to the Canadian subsidiaries, including covenants restricting their incurrence of additional debt, a debt to EBITDA ratio, a fixed charge coverage ratio, a requirement to maintain a CAD 28.0 million equity balance and a capital expenditure limit of CAD 2.0 million per year. The Company was in compliance with all covenants of the BMO Credit Agreement as of March 31, 2015.  

 

17


 

 

 

Amortization expenses relating to deferred financing charges were less than $0.1 million for each of the quarterly periods ended March 31, 2015 and 2014. These costs are included in interest expense in the consolidated statements of earnings.

 

Casinos Poland

CDR’s land lease is a financing obligation of the Company. Prior to the Company’s acquisition of its ownership interest in CDR, CDR sold a portion of the land on which the REC project has been constructed and then entered into an agreement to lease back a portion of the land sold. The Company accounts for the lease using the financing method, accounting for the land subject to the lease as an asset and the lease payments as interest on the financing obligation. Under the land lease, CDR has four options to purchase the land. The first option date is July 1, 2023. Due to the nature of the CDR land lease financing obligation, there are no principal payments due until the Company exercises its option to purchase the land. Lease payments are applied to interest only, and any change in the outstanding balance of the financing obligation relates to foreign currency translation. As of March 31, 2015, the outstanding balance on the financing obligation was CAD 19.5 million ($15.4 million based on the exchange rate in effect on March 31, 2015) and the implicit interest rate was 10.0%.
