Daniel Lee

let Actually, everything used revenues. so to for be That us full balance bit. little net recorded me was value, free away that a to that given at was the check then promotional retail you get and was

to beverage, food in used comes only revenue casino and that’s back we in which $X,XXX $X,XXX it and get goes used, of figure accumulate the say, lunch loyalty If and look basically for and special they’re points they’re at the to – department have might casino and breakage out value well, promos bought points record casino. loses for outside program goes them and of the loyalty host would them they’re Now we and in points and you would in record points worth value XX. into in those when a then the they $XXX the casino the or calculate in food beverage revenue, the and When hotel free credit used account you get and If program it department. take used. Well, had we – those of for we and the points got we loyalty play, because stuff. XX But you some we it lunch, loyalty something maybe not loyalty the points.

allocate, also the from, companies beverage We providing say, to department. did, to used services the complementary and all the was of casino casino cost food transferred department

different up to for pick casino costs. those XX and And complementary another used provide and the than it. just looked casino so years, should looking It’s of services to has the take while very logic at the it’s being way going industry of that some things. you It’s getting for at

the clean statement. casino the now It’s company at is end food street down it least of the this the better my day, it business, income sent the restaurant a at that relatively run to to out from probably from almost vouchers. where like of for – happens having a to of view go and think, just customer beverage was department because, the of it’s has I point trying and example,

And so the expenses and much they’re but XXX% because gets the that revenues – revenues volume the expect that are of that. would of have it the rest actual we

hold food P&L and more same statement beverage our the with thing before, department manager far responsible like I on. courses And was his own for it the hotel can things a whereas so and distorted the And P&L so and statement.

at about how should discussions the end companies we done, that the big think what new would, be I nothing historical accounting from a not going back do. improvement think and I frankly, it. effort. of should much this So went to of There’s coordinated talking you to an people on. this other be be is do those for a And we’re gain most numbers wouldn’t with reinstate but lot in It It’d policies. of the casino day, much like companies, and the trying

And so last year’s results. all don’t this at year’s results look like

it So real I net And weather line, decrease The on know revenue bad really. the the down in if were statement. bad. revenues casino lot is X%. you that of rest it the down like income our looks at that And wasn’t our look it’s changed was answer a accounting but is

transparency, to this we if lines not casino, even And year’s side last or you’re numbers that hotel, technique. individual and the calculates at looking revenue the did provide so numbers. are side, a To table any year’s this expanse year’s last food using beverage, comparable year’s have of of the supplemental numbers
