ATLANTIC CITY —
Casino Licensees Financial Results: According to financial reports filed with the Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE), the casino licensees’ Net Revenue decreased 0.3% to $1,302.3 million, and Gross Operating Profit for the industry decreased 4.6% for the six months ended June 2018 to $294.5 million.
Third Party Business Sales: Sales from third party businesses decreased 0.8% to $88.8 million for the six months ended June 2018.
Hotel Occupancy: The occupancy rate in the industry’s casino hotels for the six months ended June 2018 was 81.4%, which is 4.4 percentage points lower than the comparable period last year.
NOTICE - CHANGE IN FINANCIAL REPORTING REQUIREMENTS: The Financial Accounting Standards Board and International Accounting Standards Board have updated standards on revenue recognition, including ASC 606: “Revenue from Contracts with Customers”. For New Jersey casino licensees, ASC 606 changes the reporting of revenue on the Income Statement by requiring the former “Promotional Allowances” line to be reported as a reduction to the “Casino Revenue” line. Accordingly, the “Total Revenue” and “Promotional Allowances” lines have been removed from the Income Statement effective January 1, 2018. For Income Statements filed with the DGE after the effective date, prior periods will be restated to conform with ASC 606 and ensure consistency and comparability among casino licensees as mandated by the Casino Control Act.
NOTICE - INCOME STATEMENTS FOR OCEAN RESORT AND HARD ROCK: Due to opening dates in late June, Ocean Resort and Hard Rock filed Income Statements covering the days of operation during June. Each property will submit a complete financial report for the 3rd Quarter 2018.
