Jul 25 13
Ameristar Casinos Inc. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2013. For the quarter, the company's net revenues were $291.3 million compared with $296.3 million a year ago. Income from operations was $61.1 million compared with $59.0 million a year ago. Current-year operating income was adversely impacted by $1.3 million of expenses associated with the pending merger and $0.4 million of pre-opening costs associated with its Lake Charles development project. Income before income tax provision was $32.97 million compared with $30.1 million a year ago. Net income was $19.98 million or $0.57 per diluted share compared with $17.6 million or $0.51 per diluted share a year ago. The year-over-year improvement in net income was mostly attributable to enhanced operating efficiencies at all its properties, which more than offset the decrease in net revenues, the merger-related costs and Lake Charles pre-opening costs in the current period. Net cash provided by operating activities was $44.8 million compared with $43.8 million a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA was $91.9 million compared with $90.2 million a year ago.
