Boyd Gaming Corporation Research Report

Boyd Gaming is again on the radar after the company reported net revenue of $625.8 million, up 3.2 percent from $606.7 million. Furthermore, the company is selling its Echelon site to the Genting Group for $350 million in order to improve its long-term financial position. While the company is still committed to serving the Las Vegas market, Boyd Gaming now believes that developing a large-sale project on the Las Vegas strip "was not consistent with its current strategy." Recently, Boyd Gaming also sold the assets of Dania Jai-Alai. Moving forward, the company expects that its Peninsula acquisition will further diversify the company and strengthen its balance sheet by expanding free cash flow. By divesting from other areas, Boyd Gaming can now focus on integrating its Peninsula acquisition, opening new growth opportunities.
