Construction for the Century Downs Racetrack and Casino in Calgary is progressing on-budget and the project is on schedule for a March 2015 opening," said Erwin Haitzmann and Peter Hoetzinger, Co Chief Executive Officers of Century Casinos.

Items deducted from or added to earnings from operations to arrive at net earnings include interest income, interest expense, gains on foreign currency transactions, gain on business combination, income tax expense and non-controlling interests.

The period over period increase in net operating revenue and decrease in net earnings for the six months ended June 30, 2014 compared to the six months ended June 30, 2013 primarily relate to the inclusion of operating results from Casinos Poland Ltd. ("Casinos Poland" or "CPL") in the second quarter of 2013 as a result of the Company's purchase of an additional 33.3% ownership interest in CPL in April 2013. Prior to the acquisition of this additional interest in CPL, the Company owned 33.3% of CPL and accounted for the CPL ownership interest as an equity investment. CPL contributed $26.7 million in net operating revenue and $0.3 million in net losses from January 1, 2014 through June 30, 2014. In addition, the consolidation of United Horsemen of Alberta, Inc. ("UHA") as of November 29, 2013 as a minority owned subsidiary for which we have a controlling financial interest affects the comparability of 2014 and 2013 financial results. UHA contributed $0.4 million in net operating revenue and less than $0.1 million in net losses from January 1, 2014 through June 30, 2014.

For the three months ended June 30, 2013, the Company recognized a gain of $2.1 million as a result of measuring at fair value its initial 33.3% ownership interest in CPL held prior to the acquisition date. As a result, the Corporate Other category reported net earnings of $1.1 million and $0.2 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, respectively.

*  The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net earnings (loss) before interest, income taxes (benefit), depreciation, amortization, non-controlling interest, pre-opening expenses, non-cash stock based compensation charges, asset impairment costs, (gain) loss on disposition of fixed assets, discontinued operations, realized foreign currency (gains) losses, gain on business combination and certain other one-time items. Intercompany transactions consisting primarily of management and royalty fees and interest, along with their related tax effects, are excluded from the presentation of net earnings (loss) and Adjusted EBITDA reported for each property. Not all of the aforementioned items occur in each reporting period, but have been included in the definition based on historical activity. These adjustments have no effect on the consolidated results as reported under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("US GAAP"). Adjusted EBITDA is not considered a measure of performance recognized under US GAAP. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA is a valuable measure of the relative performance of the Company and its properties. The gaming industry commonly uses Adjusted EBITDA as a method of arriving at the economic value of a casino operation. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA to compare the relative operating performance of separate operating units by eliminating the above mentioned items associated with the varying levels of capital expenditures for infrastructure required to generate revenue, and the often high cost of acquiring existing operations. Adjusted EBITDA is used by the Company's lending institution to gauge operating performance. The Company's computation of Adjusted EBITDA may be different from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similar measures used by other companies within the gaming industry. Please see the reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net earnings (loss) above.

SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION
