George Papanier, president and CEO of Twin River, explained: “I am very pleased with the results of the fourth quarter which reflect the continued stabilisation in the New England market following the entrance of new competitors and strong performance across our broader portfolio. We expect this momentum to continue into 2020 which is reflected in our full year 2020 guidance.

“We’re excited about the progress we’ve made as we continue to transform the company. Over the last year or so, the steps we’ve taken to strategically and opportunistically grow and diversify the company, have created significant shareholder value, returned meaningful capital and leave us well positioned for long-term growth.”

Furthermore, the company has also given a financial outlook for the year ending December 31, 2020, as Twin River estimates adjusted EBITDA to be approximately $180m, an approximate increase of eight per cent over the midpoint of the preliminary range for the same period in 2019. The firm anticipates that its annualised runrate for adjusted EBITDA coming out of 2020 will be approximately $190m.

Guidance is based on current plans and expectations, including a number of assumptions and includes the impact of its pending acquisition of properties in Kansas City, Vicksburg, Mississippi, and Missouri from Eldorado Resorts, which should be finalised early in the second quarter of 2020 pending regulatory approval in the latter.
