Golden Entertainment Presents 2020 First Quarter Results




– Q1 Results Negatively Impacted by Mandated Closure of All Operations in March
– Cash Outlays Significantly Reduced to Preserve Liquidity
– Revolver Fully Drawn in March to Create Over $300 million Cash Position
– Montana Distributed Gaming Operations Reopened May 4th Statewide

Golden Entertainment, Inc.  reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020. Blake Sartini, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Golden Entertainment, commented, “The COVID-19 pandemic forced the mandated closure of all our operations beginning in mid-March, and continues to have an unprecedented impact on our business and the gaming and entertainment industry in general. This is reflected in our first quarter financial results, notwithstanding our significant year-over-year growth through February prior to the suspension of our operations. Since the closures, we have focused on supporting our team members, staying connected to our customers, and working to establish appropriate sanitation protocols to offer a safe environment when we are allowed to reopen.

“In order to preserve the Company’s liquidity and position ourselves to withstand the ongoing interruption to our operations, we reduced our cash operating expenses, deferred all capital expenditures and drew down our $200 million availability under our revolving credit facility. The actions that we have taken since the closure of our operations have positioned Golden Entertainment to withstand the current disruption in our business for the foreseeable future.

“Over the last several years we have executed on a strategic plan to put the Company on a path for long-term growth. This plan included capital investment to renovate and reposition The STRAT, accretive acquisitions that have grown our market share in Laughlin, pursuing new distributed gaming markets, and the introduction of our True Rewards one-card loyalty program. Our current cash position, capital structure with no near-term debt maturities, and diverse operations of wholly-owned casinos and distributed gaming operations across multiple jurisdictions will position Golden Entertainment favorably to achieve long-term success as we are allowed to reopen our properties.


“Finally, I want to extend my deepest sympathies to those whose health or livelihood has been directly affected by COVID-19, as well as acknowledge our great appreciation for all the healthcare providers, first responders and other essential workers whose efforts are keeping our communities safe and healthy.”

The Company reported 2020 first quarter revenues of $207.2 million compared to $239.9 million in the first quarter of 2019.
