Additional Projects and Other Developments



In September 2016, the Company was selected by Horse Racing Alberta (“HRA”) as the successful applicant to own, build and operate a horse racing facility in the Edmonton market area, which the Company is planning to operate as Century Mile Racetrack and Casino. In March 2017, the Company received approval for the Century Mile project from the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (“AGLC”). Century Mile will be a one-mile horse racetrack and a multi-level REC. The multi-level REC is expected to have 550 slot machines, restaurants, bars, delis, an off-track betting parlor and grandstand and to hold a minimum of 100 horse races per year. The project is located on Edmonton International Airport land close to the city of Leduc, south of Edmonton.  Century Mile will be approximately 30 miles from both CRA and CSA. The Company estimates this project will cost approximately CAD 60.0 million ($48.1 million based on the exchange rate in effect on September 30, 2017). Construction of the Century Mile project began in July 2017. The Company estimates that construction of this project will take approximately 15 months and that it will be completed during the fourth quarter of 2018. The Company is seeking to obtain financing for the Century Mile project.



In June 2017, the Company’s subsidiary, CCE, entered into a Share Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”), by and among Global Gaming Ventures (Group) Limited, Saw Close Casino Ltd. (“SCCL”), Anthony Wollenberg and CCE pursuant to which CCE has acquired 100% of the outstanding common stock of SCCL as well as casino licenses held by SCCL (the “SCCL License Acquisition”) for a total consideration of GBP 0.6 million ($0.8 million based on the exchange rate in effect on September 30, 2017) as well as assumed liabilities of GBP 0.2 million ($0.3 million based on the exchange rate in effect on September 30, 2017). The Company will utilize the casino licenses to develop and operate a casino in Bath, England. The Company paid GBP 0.1 million ($0.1 million) at closing. Payment of the remaining purchase consideration will be made after the receipt of certain regulatory and governmental approvals and the opening of the casino. Payment of the assumed liabilities is subject to certain performance criteria being met once the casino is in operation. The Company estimates that construction of the casino will cost GBP 5.0 million ($6.7 million based on the exchange rate in effect on September 30, 2017) and that the casino will open in the first half of 2018.



In August 2017, the Company announced that, together with the owner of the Hamilton Princess Hotel & Beach Club in Hamilton, Bermuda, it had submitted a license application to the Bermudan government for a casino at the Hamilton Princess Hotel & Beach Club. The casino will feature approximately 200 slot machines, 17 live table games, one or more electronic table games and a high limit area and salon prive. The Bermudan government will issue a provisional casino license as the next step in the application process. The conditions of the provisional casino license must be agreed upon by the Bermudan government and the company awarded the license. The Company currently has no estimated time frame on when this will be completed, and there is no guarantee that a license will be awarded. The Company’s subsidiary, CCE, entered into a long-term management agreement with the owner of the hotel to manage the operations of the casino and receive a management fee if a license is awarded. CCE will also provide a $5.0 million loan for the purchase of casino equipment if the license is awarded.

Preparation of Financial Statements



The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“US GAAP”) for interim financial reporting, the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission which apply to interim financial statements and the instructions to Form 10-Q. Accordingly, certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with US GAAP have been condensed or omitted. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated.



In the opinion of management, all adjustments considered necessary for the fair presentation of financial position, results of operations and cash flows of the Company have been included. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016. The results of operations for the period ended September 30, 2017 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results for the full year.



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”), Polish zloty (“PLN”) and British pound (“GBP”).  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:

Correction of Prior Period Balances

Subsequent to the issuance of the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2016, the Company determined that it had erroneously recognized a reduction in pari-mutuel revenue for CBS totaling $0.7 million in its condensed consolidated statement of earnings for the nine months ended September 30, 2016. This error also affected the Company’s income tax expense, net earnings attributable to non-controlling interest and consolidated statements of comprehensive income, equity, cash flows and Note 12 “Segment Information” for the nine months ended September 30, 2016.



The prior period amounts within the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 have been revised to reflect the correct balances as presented below.

2. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES



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 under 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; provided, however, that in August 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-14, Revenue from Contracts with Customers: Deferral of the Effective Date (“ASU 2015-14”), which deferred the effective date of ASU 2014-09 for one year. ASU 2015-14 is effective for fiscal years and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2017. The standards permit retrospective application using either of the following methodologies: (i) restatement of each prior reporting period presented or (ii) recognition of a cumulative-effect adjustment as of the date of initial application. In addition, the FASB has issued four related ASUs on principal versus agent guidance (ASU 2016-08), identifying performance obligations and the licensing implementation guidance (ASU 2016-10),  a revision of certain SEC Staff Observer comments (ASU 2016-11) and implementation guidance (ASU 2016-12).  The Company plans to adopt the new revenue standards effective January 1, 2018 by recognizing the cumulative effect of initially applying the new standard as an adjustment to the opening balance of equity. The Company continues to analyze the impact that the new standard will have on the Company’s consolidated financial statements, including results of operations, cash flows and related disclosures. Upon adoption, management expects the presentation of goods and services furnished without charge that is currently deducted from total revenue as promotional allowances to arrive at net operating revenue will be presented on a net basis within related revenue categories. As a result, the line items for promotional allowances on the consolidated statement of earnings would be eliminated. Additional revenue disclosures will also be added to the Company’s consolidated financial statements. Management has determined that the changes to the financial statements and related footnotes from the adoption of this standard are not expected to be material.



In July 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-11, Inventory (Topic 330): Simplifying the Measurement of Inventory (“ASU 2015-11”). The objective of ASU 2015-11 is to simplify the current guidance under which an entity must measure inventory at the lower of cost or market by requiring entities to measure most inventory at the lower of cost or net realizable value. ASU 2015-11 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, and interim periods within those fiscal years.
