Guru Investment Theses on Penn National Gaming Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Penn National Gaming - Feb 21, 2014

In the quarter, we increased our investment in Penn National Gaming, Inc. (PENN). Penn is the largest regional casino operator. The company is highly acquisitive and well diversified, with less than 20% of its cash flow coming from any one property. Penn has a strong pipeline of projects. Its casinos in Kansas, Toledo and Columbus are rapidly growing; we expect the rebranding of its recently acquired Hollywood St. Louis casino and the opening of two new racetracks in Ohio to boost results in 2014. Longer term, the company should be able to continue to invest in its properties and potentially make accretive acquisitions. Otherwise, it can use its cash flow to pay down debt, which would be accretive for its shareholders. Penn is vying for licenses in Massachusetts and Philadelphia, which could be awarded in mid-2014. Possible gaming expansions in Japan, Korea, Texas or Florida offer further growth opportunities. (David Baron)

Traded in other countries:PN1.Germany,
Penn National Gaming Inc was incorporated in Pennsylvania in 1972 as PNRC Corp. and adopted its current name in 1994, when the Company became a public company. The Company, along with its subsidiaries, is a diversified, multi-jurisdictional owner and manager of gaming and pari-mutuel properties. In 1997, the Company began its transition from a pari-mutuel company to a gaming company with the acquisition of the Charles Town property and the introduction of video lottery terminals in West Virginia. Since 1997, the Company has continued to expand its gaming operations through acquisitions, greenfield projects and property expansions. The Company aggregates its properties into three reportable segments: Midwest, East/West, and Southern Plains. The Midwest reportable segment consists of the following properties: Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg, Hollywood Casino Aurora, Hollywood Casino Joliet, Argosy Casino Alton, Hollywood Casino Toledo, and Hollywood Casino Columbus. The East/West reportable segment consists of the following properties: Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races, Hollywood Casino Bangor, Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course, Zia Park Casino, and the M Resort. The Southern Plains reportable segment consists of the following properties: Argosy Casino Riverside, Argosy Casino Sioux City, Hollywood Casino Tunica, Hollywood Casino Bay St. Louis, Boomtown Biloxi, Hollywood Casino St. Louis. As of December 31, 2013, the Company owned, managed, or had ownership interests in twenty-six facilities in seventeen jurisdictions, including Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, West Virginia, and Ontario. The Company faces competition among a large number of participants, including riverboat casinos, dockside casinos, land-based casinos, video lottery, sweepstakes and poker machines not located in casinos, Native American gaming, emerging varieties of Internet gaming and other forms of gaming in the U.S. The Company owns a number of trademarks registered with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, including but not limited to, 'Telebet,' 'The World Series of Handicapping,' and 'Players' Choice.' As owners and managers of gaming and pari-mutuel wagering facilities, the Company is subject to extensive state, local and, in Canada, provincial regulation.
