----------------------------------------------------------------------------
(1) Revenues reported are based on monthly average exchange rates, report
same store revenues and are in USD millions. From month to month, exchange
rate fluctuations could cause an impact on revenues as compared to the
previous year.
(2) 2014 and 2013 revenues consist of all gaming revenue in the country plus
revenue from our fully-owned Fiesta Hotel and management fees for the
Thunderbird Hotel - Pardo, Thunderbird Hotel - Carrera and Thunderbird Hotel
- El Pueblo, which are owned by third parties.
(3) Effective January 1, 2013, IFRS 11 changed the way that joint ventures
are accounted for whereby proportional consolidation is no longer allowed
and equity accounting should be applied to joint ventures. Until further
notice and for the convenience of the reader and for the illustrative
purposes of this monthly revenue report, the Group has elected to continue
to show the Costa Rican joint venture proportional revenues, which vary from
the way that the Group accounts for these revenues in our Interim and Annual
Financial Statements.
(4) In October 2013, we reduced 290 gaming positions in Costa Rica that
cost more to maintain on the floor (because of per position gaming taxes)
than their respective revenue. As a result, period revenue has dropped, but
should be reflected in enhanced EBITDA from the related properties.
