Forward-looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of
the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Actual results may vary
materially from expectations. Although Penn National Gaming, Inc. and its
subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company” or “PENN”) believe that our
expectations are based on reasonable assumptions within the bounds of our
knowledge of our business and operations, there can be no assurance that
actual results will not differ materially from our expectations. Meaningful
factors that could cause actual results to differ from expectations include,
but are not limited to, risks related to the following: the proposed
separation of PropCo from PENN, including our ability to timely receive all
necessary consents and approvals, the anticipated timing of the proposed
separation, the expected tax treatment of the proposed transaction, the
ability of each of the post spin Company and PropCo to conduct and expand
their respective businesses following the proposed spin-off, and the diversion
of management’s attention from traditional business concerns; our ability to
obtain timely regulatory approvals required to own, develop, operate and/or
relocate our facilities (a request to relocate our Ohio race tracks in
encountering regulatory challenges at this time) , or other delays or
impediments to completing our planned acquisitions or projects, including
favorable resolution of any related litigation, including the appeal by the
Ohio Roundtable addressing the legality of video lottery terminals in Ohio;
our ability to secure state and local permits and approvals necessary for
construction; construction factors, including delays, unexpected remediation
costs, local opposition and increased cost of labor and materials; our ability
to successfully integrate Harrah’s St. Louis into our existing business; our
ability to reach agreements with the thoroughbred and harness horseman in Ohio
in connection with the proposed relocations and to otherwise maintain
agreements with our horseman, pari-mutuel clerks and other organized labor
groups; the passage of state, federal or local legislation (including
referenda) that would expand, restrict, further tax, prevent or negatively
impact operations in or adjacent to the jurisdictions in which we do or seek
to do business (such as a smoking ban at any of our facilities); the effects
of local and national economic, credit, capital market, housing, and energy
conditions on the economy in general and on the gaming and lodging industries
in particular; the activities of our competitors and the emergence of new
competitors (traditional and internet based); increases in the effective rate
of taxation at any of our properties or at the corporate level; our ability to
