Boyd Gamingâs full year 2015 report produced mixed results, with one of the more notable figures being income before income taxes of $40m, in comparison with a loss before income taxes of $40.9m the previous year.
Operating income was $344.6m, up 37%.
Revenues did not reflect so kindly however, with gaming revenues slipping from $2.3bn to $1.8bn, gross revenues declining 23% to $2.4bn and net revenues dropping 19% to $2.2bn.
Total pro forma adjusted EBITDA was $629.5m, an upturn of 15%, and adjusted earnings leaped from $1.3m ($0.01 per share) to $89.7m ($0.79 per share).
Borgata, which is part-owned by Boyd with MGM Resorts, saw its net revenues improve by 8% year-on-year to $193m for the fourth quarter.
The Las Vegas Locals segment produced net revenues of $158.8m, up 5%, and Boyd president and CEO Keith Smith said the operator was âparticularly encouragedâ by the results in that area.
