BOYD GAMING CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
as of March 31, 2014 and December 31, 2013 and for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013
______________________________________________________________________________________________________
NOTE 1.    ORGANIZATION AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION
Organization
Boyd Gaming Corporation (and together with its subsidiaries, the “Company,” "Boyd Gaming," “we” or “us”) was incorporated in the state of Nevada in 1988 and has been operating for almost 40 years. The Company's common stock is traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “BYD”.
We are a diversified operator of 21 wholly owned gaming entertainment properties and one property, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, in which we have a controlling interest in the limited liability company. Headquartered in Las Vegas, we have gaming operations in Nevada, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and New Jersey.

Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with the instructions to the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X and, therefore, do not include all information and footnote disclosures necessary for complete financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”).

The results for the periods indicated are unaudited, but reflect all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) that management considers necessary for a fair presentation of financial position, results of operations and cash flows. Results of operations and cash flows for the interim periods presented herein are not necessarily indicative of the results that would be achieved during a full year of operations or in future periods.

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Boyd Gaming and its subsidiaries. Investments in unconsolidated affiliates, which are less than 50% owned and do not meet the consolidation criteria of the authoritative accounting guidance for voting interest, controlling interest or variable interest entities, are accounted for under the equity method. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013, as filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on March 14, 2014.

Revisions and Reclassifications
The financial information for the three months ended March 31, 2013 is derived from our condensed consolidated financial statements and footnotes included in the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 and has been revised to reflect the results of operations and cash flows of our Dania Jai-Alai property as discontinued operations. See Note 3, Disposition, for further discussion.

NOTE 2.    SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Promotional Allowances
The retail value of accommodations, food and beverage, and other services furnished to guests without charge is included in gross revenues and then deducted as a promotional allowance. Promotional allowances also include incentives earned in our slot bonus program such as cash, complimentary play, and the estimated retail value of goods and services (such as complimentary rooms and food and beverages). We reward customers, through the use of bonus programs, with points based on amounts wagered that can be redeemed for a specified period of time, principally for complimentary play, and to a lesser extent for goods or services, depending upon the property.

Gaming Taxes
We are subject to taxes based on gross gaming revenues in the jurisdictions in which we operate. These gaming taxes are assessed based on our gaming revenues and are recorded as a gaming expense in the condensed consolidated statements of operations. These taxes totaled approximately $100.4 million and $102.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively.

Income Taxes
Income taxes are recorded under the asset and liability method, whereby deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized based on the future tax consequences attributable to temporary differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases, and attributable to operating loss and tax credit carryforwards. We reduce the carrying amounts of deferred tax assets by a valuation allowance, if based on the available evidence it is more likely than not that such assets will not be realized. Accordingly, the need to establish valuation allowances for deferred tax assets is assessed periodically based on a more-likely-than-not realization threshold. This assessment considers, among other matters, the nature, frequency and severity of current and cumulative losses, forecasts of future profitability, the duration of statutory carryforward periods, our experience with the utilization of operating loss and tax credit carryforwards before expiration and tax planning strategies.

In accordance with GAAP, we have computed our provision for income taxes by applying the actual effective tax rate, under the discrete method, to quarter-to-date income. The discrete method was used to calculate the income tax expense or benefit as the annual effective tax rate was not considered a reliable estimate of year-to-date income tax expense or benefit. We believe this method provides the most reliable estimate of year-to-date income tax expense.

Our current rate is impacted by adjustments that are largely independent of our operating results before taxes.  Such adjustments relate primarily to the accrual of non-cash tax expense in connection with the tax amortization of indefinite-lived intangible assets that are not available to offset existing deferred tax assets.  The deferred tax liabilities created by the tax amortization of these intangibles cannot be used to offset corresponding increases in the net operating loss deferred tax assets when determining our valuation allowance.

Other Long Term Tax Liabilities
The Company's income tax returns are subject to examination by the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) and other tax authorities in the locations where it operates. The Company assesses potentially unfavorable outcomes of such examinations based on accounting standards for uncertain income taxes, which prescribe a minimum recognition threshold a tax position is required to meet before being recognized in the financial statements.

BOYD GAMING CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS — (Continued)
as of March 31, 2014 and December 31, 2013 and for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013
______________________________________________________________________________________________________



Uncertain tax position accounting standards apply to all tax positions related to income taxes. These accounting standards utilize a two-step approach for evaluating tax positions. Recognition occurs when the Company concludes that a tax position, based on its technical merits, is more likely than not to be sustained upon examination. Measurement is only addressed if the position is deemed to be more likely than not to be sustained. The tax benefit is measured as the largest amount of benefit that is more likely than not to be realized upon settlement. Use of the term “more likely than not” indicates the likelihood of occurrence is greater than 50%.

Tax positions failing to qualify for initial recognition are recognized in the first subsequent interim period that they meet the “more likely than not” standard. If it is subsequently determined that a previously recognized tax position no longer meets the “more likely than not” standard, it is required that the tax position is derecognized. Accounting standards for uncertain tax positions specifically prohibit the use of a valuation allowance as a substitute for derecognition of tax positions. As applicable, the Company will recognize accrued penalties and interest related to unrecognized tax benefits in the provision for income taxes. Accrued interest and penalties are included in the related tax long term liability balance.

Net Loss per Share
Basic net income (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) applicable to Boyd Gaming Corporation stockholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per share reflects the additional dilution for all potentially-dilutive securities, such as stock options.

Due to the net losses for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, the effect of all potential common share equivalents was anti-dilutive, and therefore all such shares, 942,141 and 379,593, respectively, were excluded from the computation of diluted weighted average shares outstanding.

Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from these estimates.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements
A variety of proposed or otherwise potential accounting standards are currently under study by standard-setting organizations and certain regulatory agencies. Because of the tentative and preliminary nature of such proposed standards, we have not yet determined the effect, if any, that the implementation of such proposed standards would have on our consolidated financial statements.

Accounting Standards Update 2013-11 Income Taxes (Topic 740) Presentation of an Unrecognized Tax Benefit ("UTB") When a Net Operating Loss Carryforward, a Similar Tax Loss, or a Tax Credit Carryforward Exists ("Update 2013-11")
In July 2013, the FASB issued ASU 2013-11. The objective of Update 2013-11 is to provide guidance on the financial statement presentation of an Unrecognized Tax Benefit (“UTB”) when a net operating loss ("NOL") carryforward, a similar tax loss, or a tax credit carryforward exists. The Company is required to present an UTB in the financial statements as a reduction to a deferred tax asset for a NOL carryforward, a similar tax loss, or a tax credit carryforward.

Update 2013-11 is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2013. The adoption of Update 2013-11 did not have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements.

NOTE 3.    DISPOSITION
Discontinued Operations - Disposition of Dania Jai-Alai
On May 22, 2013, we consummated the sale of certain assets and liabilities of the Dania pari-mutuel facility ("Dania Jai-Alia"), located in Broward County, Florida, for a sales price of $65.5 million. The sale was pursuant to an asset agreement (the "New Dania Agreement") that we entered into with Dania Entertainment Center, LLC ("Dania Entertainment"). As part of the New Dania Agreement, the $5 million non-refundable deposit and $2 million fees paid to us in 2011 by Dania Entertainment were applied to the sales price, and we received $58.5 million in cash and recorded a pre-tax gain of $18.9 million in second quarter 2013. We have presented the results of Dania Jai-Alai Business as discontinued operations for all periods presented in these condensed consolidated financial statements. There were no assets and liabilities of the discontinued operation as of March 31, 2014 and December 31, 2013.

NOTE 4.    CONSOLIDATION OF CERTAIN INTERESTS
Controlling Interest
Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa
Overview
The Company and MGM Resorts International ("MGM") each originally held a 50% interest in Marina District Development Holding Co., LLC (“Holding Company”). Holding Company owns all the equity interests in Marina District Development Company, LLC, d.b.a. Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa. We are the managing member of Holding Company, and we are responsible for the day-to-day operations of Borgata, including the improvement of the facility and business. As a result, we consolidate the Borgata into our financial statements.

In February 2010, we entered into an agreement with MGM to amend the operating agreement to, among other things, facilitate the transfer of MGM's interest in the Holding Company ("MGM Interest") to a divestiture trust (the "Divestiture Trust") established for the purpose of selling the MGM Interest to a third party. The proposed sale of the MGM Interest through the Divestiture Trust was part of a then-proposed settlement agreement between MGM and the New Jersey Department of Gaming Enforcement (the “NJDGE”).

On March 17, 2010, MGM announced that its settlement agreement with the NJDGE had been approved by the New Jersey Casino Control Commission ("NJCCC"). Under the terms of the settlement agreement, MGM agreed to transfer the MGM Interest into the Divestiture Trust and further agreed to sell such interest within a 30-month period. During the first 18 months of such period, MGM had the power to direct the trustee to sell the MGM Interest, subject to the approval of the NJCCC. If the sale was not completed by such time, the trustee would have been solely responsible for the sale of the MGM Interest. The MGM Interest was transferred to the Divestiture Trust on March 24, 2010.

MGM has subsequently announced that it has entered into an amendment with respect to its settlement agreement with the NJDGE, as approved by the NJCCC. The amended agreement provided that until March 24, 2013, MGM had the right to direct the Divestiture Trust to sell the MGM Interest. If a sale was not concluded by that time, the Divestiture Trust was to be responsible for selling MGM's Interest during the following 12-month period, or not later than March 24, 2014. Subsequent to a Joint Petition of MGM, Boyd and Marina District Development Company, LLC ("MDDC"), the NJCCC, on February 13, 2013, approved amendments to the Stipulation of Settlement and Trust Agreement which permits MGM to file an application for a statement of compliance, which, if approved, could permit MGM to reacquire its interest in MDDC. The deadline requiring MGM and the Divestiture Trust to sell the MGM Interest has been tolled to allow the NJCCC to complete a review of the application. The Company has a right of first refusal on any sale of the MGM Interest.

Deconsolidation of Variable Interest
LVE Energy Partners, LLC
LVE Energy Partners, LLC ("LVE") was a joint venture between Marina Energy LLC and DCO ECH Energy, LLC. Through our wholly-owned subsidiary, Echelon Resorts, LLC ("Echelon Resorts"), we had entered into an Energy Sales Agreement ("ESA") with LVE to design, build, own and operate a central energy center and related distribution system for our planned Echelon resort development.

Accounting guidance required us to consolidate LVE for financial statement purposes, as we determined that we were the primary beneficiary of the executory contract, the ESA, giving rise to the variable interest.

In connection with the disposition of Echelon on March 4, 2013, we exercised an option to acquire the central energy center assets from LVE for $187.0 million. We immediately sold these assets to the buyer of Echelon and the ESA was terminated. As a result, we ceased consolidation of LVE as of that date.

As of March 31, 2014, we believe that Boyd Gaming, Peninsula and Borgata were in compliance with the financial and other covenants of their respective debt instruments.

NOTE 9.    COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
Commitments
There have been no material changes to our commitments described under Note 13, Commitments and Contingencies, in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 filed with the SEC on March 14, 2014.

Borgata Property Taxes
Borgata has filed tax appeal complaints, in connection with its property tax assessments for tax years 2009 through 2014, in New Jersey Tax Court (“Court”). The trial for tax years 2009 and 2010 was held during the second quarter of 2013 and a decision was issued on October 18, 2013. The assessor valued Borgata’s real property at approximately $2.3 billion. The Court found in favor of the Borgata and reduced the real property valuation to $880 million and $870 million for tax years 2009 and 2010, respectively. The City of Atlantic City filed an appeal in the New Jersey Superior Court - Appellate Division in November 2013. Borgata has paid its property tax obligations consistent with the assessor’s valuation and based on the Court’s decision, we estimate the 2009 and 2010 property tax refunds and related statutory interest will be approximately $48.0 million and $9.0 million, respectively. The trial date for tax years 2011 through 2013 was extended and the trial is scheduled to be held in September 2014. We filed an appeal complaint in connection with our 2014 valuation in February 2014 and continue to pay our property tax obligations in accordance with the assessor’s valuation. A trial date for the 2014 appeal has not been scheduled. We can provide no assurances that the Court’s decision will be upheld at the appellate level, nor can we be certain that we will receive a favorable decision in the 2011 through 2014 appeals. Due to the uncertainty surrounding the ultimate resolution of the City’s appeal, we will not record any gain until a final, non-appealable decision has been rendered. The final resolution of our appeals for the period January 1, 2009 through March 31, 2014 could result in adjustment to our estimated property tax liability at Borgata.

Contingencies
Legal Matters
We are parties to various legal proceedings arising in the ordinary course of business. We believe that all pending claims, if adversely decided, would not have a material adverse effect on our business, financial position or results of operations.

NOTE 10.    STOCKHOLDERS' EQUITY AND STOCK INCENTIVE PLANS
Share-Based Compensation
We account for share-based awards exchanged for employee services in accordance with the authoritative accounting guidance for share-based payments. Under the guidance, share-based compensation expense is measured at the grant date, based on the estimated fair value of the award, and is recognized as expense, net of estimated forfeitures, over the employee's requisite service period.

NOTE 12.     FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
We have adopted the authoritative accounting guidance for fair value measurements, which does not determine or affect the circumstances under which fair value measurements are used, but defines fair value, expands disclosure requirements around fair value and specifies a hierarchy of valuation techniques based on whether the inputs to those valuation techniques are observable or unobservable. Observable inputs reflect market data obtained from independent sources, while unobservable inputs reflect the Company's market assumptions.

These inputs create the following fair value hierarchy:

Level 1: Quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets.
Level 2: Quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active; and model-derived valuations in which all significant inputs and significant value drivers are observable in active markets.

as of March 31, 2014 and December 31, 2013 and for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013
______________________________________________________________________________________________________



Level 3: Valuations derived from valuation techniques in which one or more significant inputs or significant value drivers are unobservable.

As required by the guidance for fair value measurements, financial assets and liabilities are classified in their entirety based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. Thus, assets and liabilities categorized as Level 3 may be measured at fair value using inputs that are observable (Levels 1 and 2) and unobservable (Level 3). Management's assessment of the significance of a particular input to the fair value measurement requires judgment and may affect the valuation of assets and liabilities and their placement within the fair value hierarchy levels.

Investment Available for Sale
We have an investment in a single municipal bond issuance of $22.1 million aggregate principal amount of 7.5% Urban Renewal Tax Increment Revenue Bonds, Taxable Series 2007 that is classified as available for sale. We are the only holder of this instrument and there is no quoted market price for this instrument. As such, the fair value of this investment is classified as Level 3 in the fair value hierarchy. The estimate of the fair value of such investment was determined using a combination of current market rates and estimates of market conditions for instruments with similar terms, maturities, and degrees of risk and a discounted cash flows analysis as of March 31, 2014 and December 31, 2013. Unrealized gains and losses on this instrument resulting from changes in the fair value of the instrument are not charged to earnings, but rather are recorded as other comprehensive income (loss) in the stockholders' equity section of the condensed consolidated balance sheets. At March 31, 2014 and December 31, 2013, $0.4 million and $0.3 million, respectively, of the carrying value of the investment available for sale is included as a current asset in prepaid expenses and other current assets, and at March 31, 2014 and December 31, 2013, $17.7 million and $16.8 million, respectively, is included in other assets on the condensed consolidated balance sheets. The discount associated with this investment of $3.4 million and $3.5 million as of March 31, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively, is netted with the investment balance and is being accreted over the life of the investment using the effective interest method. The accretion of such discount is included in interest income on the consolidated statements of operations.

Merger Earnout
Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, Boyd Acquisition II, LLC, an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Boyd, is obligated to make an additional payment to PGP in 2016 if Kansas Star Casino's ("KSC") EBITDA, as defined in the Merger Agreement, for 2015 exceeds $105.0 million. The additional payment would be equal to 7.5 times the amount by which KSC's 2015 EBITDA exceeds $105.0 million. The actual payout will be determined based on actual EBITDA of KSC for calendar year 2015, and payments are not limited by a maximum value. If the actual 2015 EBITDA of KSC is less than the target, the Company is not required to make any additional consideration payment. The liability was initially recorded upon consummation of the Merger, at the estimated fair value of the earnout determined in conjunction with the preliminary purchase price allocation using the modified Black-Scholes option pricing model, which requires the following assumptions: expected EBITDA volatility, forecasted 2015 EBITDA, risk-free interest rates and risk adjusted discount rate. The fair value of the earnout liability is not yet finalized and is therefore subject to change. We formed our preliminary valuation assumptions using historical experience in the gaming industry and observable market conditions. The contingent consideration agreement will be fair valued periodically with updated assumptions and any change in the fair value of the obligation will be included in the consolidated statements of comprehensive income (loss). At March 31, 2014 and December 31, 2013, there were outstanding liabilities of $0.8 million and $1.1 million, respectively, related to the merger earnout which are included in other liabilities on the condensed consolidated balance sheets.

Contingent Payments
In connection with the development of the Kansas Star Casino, KSC agreed to pay a former casino project developer and option holder 1% of KSC’s EBITDA each month for a period of ten years commencing December 20, 2011. The liability was initially recorded upon consummation of the Merger, at the estimated fair value of the contingent land purchase price using a discounted cash flows approach. At both March 31, 2014 and December 31, 2013, there was a current liability of $0.9 million related to this agreement, which was recorded in accrued liabilities on the respective condensed consolidated balance sheets, and long-term obligations of $3.4 million, which were included in other liabilities on the respective condensed consolidated balance sheets.

The estimated fair value of the Boyd Gaming Credit Facility is based on a relative value analysis performed on or about March 31, 2014 and December 31, 2013. The estimated fair value of the Peninsula Credit Facility is based on a relative value analysis performed on or about March 31, 2014 and December 31, 2013. The estimated fair value of the Borgata Credit Facility at March 31, 2014 and December 31, 2013 approximates its carrying value due to the short-term nature and variable repricing of the underlying Eurodollar loans comprising the Borgata Credit Facility. The estimated fair values of our senior notes, Peninsula's senior notes and Borgata's senior secured notes are based on quoted market prices as of March 31, 2014 and December 31, 2013. Debt included in the “Other” category is fixed-rate debt that is not traded and does not have an observable market input; therefore, we have estimated its fair value based on a discounted cash flow approach, after giving consideration to the changes in market rates of interest, creditworthiness of both parties, and credit spreads.

There were no transfers between Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 measurements during the three months ended March 31, 2014 or 2013.
