Boyd Gaming Reports Second-Quarter 2022 Results

LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 26, 2022-- Boyd Gaming Corporation(NYSE: BYD) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.

Keith Smith, President and Chief Executive Officer of Boyd Gaming, said: “We delivered another strong quarter, with quarterly Adjusted EBITDAR that was second only to last year's record results. The second quarter of 2021 was a challenging comparison due to benefits from government stimulus and the lifting of COVID restrictions. This quarter’s excellent results were driven by a continued focus on our core customer and sustained efficiencies throughout our business. Our operating trends remain strong, as play from core customer segments grew both year-over-year and sequentially from the first quarter of 2022. We also improved Companywide operating margins from the first quarter despite inflationary pressures. Overall, we are encouraged by the continued strength of our business, and remain confident in our strategy and our ability to navigate today’s uncertain economic environment.”

Boyd Gaming reported second-quarter 2022 revenues of $894.5 million, up slightly from $893.6 million in the second quarter of 2021. The Company reported net income of $146.8 million, or $1.33 per share, for the second quarter of 2022, compared to $113.7 million, or $1.00 per share, for the year-ago period.

Total Adjusted EBITDAR(1) was $353.9 million in the second quarter of 2022, compared to $385.4 million in the second quarter of 2021. Adjusted Earnings(1) for the second quarter of 2022 were $163.5 million, or $1.48 per share, compared to $175.2 million, or $1.54 per share, for the same period in 2021. Second-quarter 2021 results benefited from government stimulus and the lifting of COVID restrictions.

Operations Review

During the second quarter of 2022, the Company reported its second-best quarterly Adjusted EBITDAR performance in its history. Companywide operating margins after corporate expense were 39.6%, exceeding 39% for the fifth straight quarter.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Our financial presentations include the following non-GAAP financial measures:

  • EBITDA : earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization,
  • Adjusted EBITDA : EBITDA adjusted for deferred rent, share-based compensation expense, project development, preopening and writedown expenses, impairments of assets, other operating items, net, gain or loss on early extinguishments and modifications of debt and other items, net,
  • EBITDAR : EBITDA further adjusted for rent expense associated with master leases with a real estate investment trust,
  • Adjusted EBITDAR : Adjusted EBITDA further adjusted for rent expense associated with master leases with a real estate investment trust,
  • Adjusted Earnings : net income before project development, preopening and writedown expenses, impairments of assets, other operating items, net, gain or loss on early extinguishments and modifications of debt, and other non-recurring adjustments, net, and,
  • Adjusted Earnings Per Share (Adjusted EPS) : Adjusted Earnings divided by weighted average diluted shares outstanding.

Collectively, we refer to these and other non-GAAP financial measures as the “Non-GAAP Measures”.

The Non-GAAP Measures are commonly used measures of performance in our industry that we believe, when considered with measures calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP), provide our investors with a more complete understanding of our operating results and facilitates comparisons between us and our competitors. We provide this information to investors to enable them to perform comparisons of our past, present and future operating results and as a means to evaluate the results of core on-going operations. We have historically reported these measures to our investors and believe that the continued inclusion of the Non-GAAP Measures provides consistency in our financial reporting. We also believe this information is useful to investors in allowing greater transparency related to significant measures used by our management in their financial and operational decision-making, their evaluation of total company and individual property performance, in the evaluation of incentive compensation and in the annual budget process. Management also uses Non-GAAP Measures in the evaluation of potential acquisitions and dispositions. We believe these measures continue to be used by investors in their assessment of our operating performance and the valuation of our company.

The use of Non-GAAP Measures has certain limitations. Our presentation of the Non-GAAP Measures may be different from the presentation used by other companies and therefore comparability may be limited. While excluded from certain of the Non-GAAP Measures, depreciation and amortization expense, interest expense, income taxes and other items have been and will be incurred. Each of these items should also be considered in the overall evaluation of our results. Additionally, the Non-GAAP Measures do not consider capital expenditures and other investing activities and should not be considered as a measure of our liquidity. We compensate for these limitations by providing the relevant disclosure of our depreciation and amortization, interest and income taxes, capital expenditures and other items both in our reconciliations to the historical GAAP financial measures and in our consolidated financial statements, all of which should be considered when evaluating our performance. We do not provide a reconciliation of forward-looking Non-GAAP Measures to the corresponding forward-looking GAAP measure due to our inability to project special charges and certain expenses.

The Non-GAAP Measures are to be used in addition to and in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP. The Non-GAAP Measures should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income, or any other operating performance measure prescribed by GAAP, nor should these measures be relied upon to the exclusion of GAAP financial measures. The Non-GAAP Measures reflect additional ways of viewing our operations that we believe, when viewed with our GAAP results and the reconciliations to the corresponding historical GAAP financial measures, provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business than could be obtained absent this disclosure. Management strongly encourages investors to review our financial information in its entirety and not to rely on a single financial measure.
