A press release states the Net Revenues and EBITDA for the third quarter include insurance recoveries received as partial advances to the company’s business interruption claims related to the flooding along the Mississippi River during fiscal 2012 for $0.9 million.

The company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Virginia McDowell, said: “We posted solid results in our third fiscal quarter.  Specifically, net revenues increased at eleven of our fifteen properties, including each of our properties outside of Mississippi, where the markets have been slow to recover from the flooding last spring and economic issues continue to negatively impact the market.
