Dover Downs Gaming & Entertainment, Inc. Reports Results for the Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2013

DOVER, Del.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Dover Downs Gaming & Entertainment, Inc. (NYS: DDE) today reported results for the three months ended June 30, 2013.

Net earnings were $491,000 compared with $1,817,000 for the second quarter of 2012. Earnings per diluted share were $.02 compared with $.06 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2012.

The Company's revenues for the second quarter of 2013 were $50,048,000 compared with $58,355,000 for the second quarter of 2012. Gaming revenues were $43,177,000 compared to $52,331,000 for the second quarter of last year. The decline is primarily attributable to the increased competition in the Mid-Atlantic gaming market.

Other operating revenues improved 14.1% to $6,871,000 for the second quarter of 2013. Occupancy levels in the Dover Downs Hotel were approximately 93% for the second quarter of 2013 and 2012, but the Company saw improved cash rooms revenue during the quarter from strong convention business as well as from activity related to the Firefly Music Festival hosted by Dover International Speedway.

General and administrative, depreciation and interest expenses were all down slightly compared to the second quarter of 2012.

Denis McGlynn, the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer, stated: "This regional market remains extremely competitive. We are hopeful that the recently formed Lottery & Gaming Study Commission established to examine the Delaware gaming industry will be productive, educational and beneficial to all industry stakeholders as the gaming industry deals with the changing operational environment. We are grateful the State has agreed to move forward with this review in light of this dramatically changed marketplace."
