Greetings and welcome to the Penn National Gaming fourth-quarter conference call. [Operator instructions] I would now like to turn the conference over to Mr. Joe Jaffoni, investor relations. Please go ahead.

Jay SnowdenChief Executive Officer

Thanks, Joe. Good morning, everyone. Thanks for joining us for our fourth-quarter earnings call. Unfortunately, we don’t have our new Chief Financial Officer Felicia Hendrix on board quite yet though I know she’s out there listening and eager to join the team here in a few weeks.

We’re excited for that. So, in her place, I’ll be providing a brief financial update this morning following a high-level year-end review and some additional color on what was really an exciting quarter for us in Q4 of 2020. Here with me as usual are members of my executive team this morning who can help answer your questions including our Head of Operations Todd George who will answer questions about our core business; and Justin Sebastiano, our SVP, finance, and treasurer who will tag team with me as needed on the finance side. We’re also joined for the first time by Harper Ko, our new GC.

Welcome, Harper. With that, let me begin by saying that as we close the final chapter on one of the most difficult and surreal years for all of us from a personal and professional standpoint, I’m immensely proud of the way our team members at all levels of organization came together, weathered the storm, and helped us emerge as a stronger company than ever before. While we’ll continue to adjust to the uncertainties of today’s world until COVID-19 is behind us, we used all the adversities and challenges thrown at us in 2020 as catalysts to completely reevaluate and reimagine the way we do business and we supercharge the digital transformation of our company at the same time. Our team at Penn proved a lot in 2020.

For me as I reflect the words agility, perseverance, tenacity, resilience, creativity, and change agent all come to mind. Our result in 2020 speak to the relentless focus and nimbleness of our best-in-class corporate and property management teams and they reflect the power of our incredible partnership with our great friends at Barstool Sports. While I am equally proud — what I am equally proud of — excuse me, I’m looking back on 2020 is how our company rose the occasion to support our team members in host communities in these times of great need and heightened social justice awareness. Through our Penn National Gaming Foundation, we created a COVID-19 emergency relief fund for our team members and raised over $3.7 million from our board of directors, senior management team, and our foundation.

In addition, we provided $13 million in one-time holiday cash bonuses to our non-executive team members companywide in the fourth quarter to help with the financial impact to their families from the pandemic. We also created the Hurricane Laura relief funds with an initial contribution of $2.5 million to help our community and team members impacted by the storm, in addition to providing more than $6million in full wages and benefits to our team members while the L’Auberge Lake Charles was closed. Most importantly, we joined Dave Portnoy’s latest mission at Barstool to help save and sustain small businesses across the country that have been impacted by COVID-19, contributing more than $4.6 million and counting to the Barstool funds. Finally, on the social justice front, our diversity committee announced a new $1million annual scholarship program to support team members from historically disadvantaged and underrepresented groups.

And we launched a series of new inclusion-related initiatives to educate our team members across the organization and continue to foster a respectful and inclusive workplace. Turning now to our fourth-quarter results both, our revenues and adjusted EBITDAR were trending ahead of forecast before COVID-19-related closures in Illinois, Michigan, and Pennsylvania and increased restrictions in Ohio and Massachusetts among a few other states began in mid-November. While revenues contracted 23% year over year, adjusted EBITDAR declined by only 9% for the same period, reflecting structural changes that we put — that were put in place with the onset of the pandemic. These adjustments to our core business helped to expand adjusted EBITDAR margins by 580 basis points relative to Q4 ’19 results, despite the aforementioned headwinds, helped by an improvement of 720 basis points in the south segment which was least affected by the COVID-19 restrictions despite the impact of Hurricane Laura in the fourth quarter in Lake Charles.

We remain convinced that these structural changes to our business will result in meaningful EBITDAR growth once volumes return to pre-pandemic levels. Trends in January thus far are very encouraging which Todd can provide more color on during our Q&A session. In fact, this past weekend, we saw our highest Friday-Saturday-combined slot volumes across our company portfolio of properties since the first quarter of 2020. Our cell segment has continued to be particularly strong with January revenues the highest we have seen in the month of January in the last five years on a same-store basis, leading to exceptional flowthrough to EBITDA.

We are continuing to see encouraging growth in the younger demographic tiers of our database and we believe the rollout of COVID — COVID vaccinations and treatments will encourage more guests in all age segments of our database to return to our land-based facilities. When they do, they’ll soon be met with the 3C’s. Our new cash-less, card-less, and contact-less technology which will improve efficiency and provide a guest experience in line with other industries, historically frequented by younger demographics which we expect also to drive further incremental revenue for us. We’re planning to launch the 3C’s at our Pennsylvania casinos in the first half of ’21 subject to regulatory approval and we’ll continue that rollout for the remainder of 2021 to other regions.

I’m sure Felicia would also want you to know that our cash balance stood at a healthy $1.9 billion at quarter-end even after paying down $115 million of our term loan B. In turn, our net traditional debt decreased to approximately $578 million at December 31, 2020, bringing our lease-adjusted net leverage to 4.7% based on 2019 adjusted EBITDAR, compared to 5.7% at the end of 2019. Some of you may have also noticed in our financial statements that we recorded a sizable unrealized gain related to our equity positions in points bet and the score which were received as part of our market access skin agreements. This is just an example of the significant value we think we will realize over the next several years from our portfolio of leading market access partners.

Other highlights from the fourth quarter include the continued momentum we’re seeing for our Barstool Sportsbook app in Pennsylvania, strong retention, CRM efforts, and creative promotions including our matching of first-time deposits with donations to the Barstool fund to support small businesses throughout the state have led to an increased handle and market share. And most importantly, highlight our unique and unmatched approach to efficient customer acquisition. More recently, on January 22, we introduced our Barstool Sportsbook mobile app in Michigan to very strong demand. Dave Portnoy as many of you know, went to the University of Michigan and he and Big Cat have a very loyal fan base there.

They’ve been hanging out at our Greektown property in Detroit, generating a lot of excitement and awareness not just for the — for our Barstool mobile sportsbook and fully integrated iCasino which we launched on Monday, but also our retail sport — retail Barstool Sportsbook and the Greektown Casino in general which really highlights the power of our differentiated omni-channel strategy. We think this strategy is sure to only gain steam in a post-COVID environment. Importantly, Michigan’s launch weekend had 68% more first-time depositors than Pennsylvania’s initial weekend and the daily active users were nearly two-thirds higher than the average daily active users in Pennsylvania during 2020. All the more impressive when you consider the state of Michigan’s population is only a little over 70% that of Pennsylvania.

Also, worth noting, the attention and excitement from the Michigan launch has created a — a halo or spill-over effect. And the publicity surrounding our Michigan launch helped our registrations and daily active users climb in Pennsylvania as well. We are just beginning to scale but we are excited to see the early benefits from being live in our second state. Our next launch state will be an Illinois where we plan to go live prior to March Madness pending regulatory approval, of course.

And from there, we’ll continue to roll out in new states every three to five weeks or so until we’re operational in 10 or more states by the end of 2021. We achieved another milestone in Michigan with the launch of our Barstool-branded iCasino product on February 1. Although it is obviously early, we have been extremely pleased with the initial results as nearly 15% — or as of this morning, over 15% now of our Michigan Sportsbook customers placed a wager on the Barstool iCasino during its first two days of operation and average daily users exceeded our more-mature, Hollywood-branded iCasino product in Pennsylvania by more than 70% over the same two-day period. Finally, we have now fully implemented our industry-leading MyChoice reward program across all of our properties and our online channels.

This program of over 20 million members connects our land-based casinos to our sports betting and iCasino products offering players a wide range of compelling incentives to consolidate play across our various platforms. Our MyChoice player affinity program has become even more compelling as we recently announced a strategic partnership with Choice Hotels that provides for yet, even more, earning and redemption options for our most valued and loyal guests, as well as an additional funnel to fill our nearly 10,000 hotel rooms across the enterprise. Looking forward, we’re anticipating an exciting new year as we continue to introduce Barstool-branded retail and mobile sportsbooks across our portfolio including brand new builds at our two properties opening in Pennsylvania during the second half of ’21. We have already seen very strong results from our retail sportsbooks with our Indiana properties seeing meaningful increases in both gaming and non-gaming revenues following their rebranding and Barstool Sportsbooks.

We are incredibly optimistic about the opportunities to unlock further upside as we introduce additional Barstool Sportsbook and sports bars across the portfolio. In the meantime, on the legislative front, we’re focused on the enabling legislation for voter-approved sports betting laws in Louisiana and Maryland and we’re aggressively lobbying in 2021 for new opportunities for sports betting in Ohio, New York, Texas, Massachusetts, and Missouri among others We believe our industry-best geographic footprint, combined with the work we have done over the past year has set — set the stage for a very exciting ’21. And with that, I’d like to ask Frank for you to — to please turn it over to the line of questions.

Questions & Answers:

Operator

Thank you. [Operator instructions] Our first question comes from Joe Greff with J.P. Morgan. Please proceed.

Joe GreffJ.P. Morgan — Analyst

Good morning, Jay. Good morning, everybody.

Jay SnowdenChief Executive Officer

Good morning, Joe.

Joe GreffJ.P. Morgan — Analyst

First question for you Jay. And you — you kind of talked about it in a couple of different places in your prepared comments, but you’re all kind of thinking about the return of that — that 50-years-old-and-older database gaming segment. Can you remind us, you know, when we — when we think about spend per visit and visitation and margins, you know, how does that segment compares to the other segments in your database? How does that compare to that — that retail segment, you know, that’s something that could be a, you know, a positive mix-shift driver for overall performance.

Jay SnowdenChief Executive Officer

Yeah. I’m going to let Todd George answer that one, Joe.

Todd GeorgeExecutive Vice President Of Operations

Thanks, Jay. Hey, Joe. So, traditionally, Joe, this — this — this segment’s performed higher. This is the group with more time, more cash.

So, you know, we’re encouraged then in Q4. The trend has been positive where we’re starting to see greater visitation from this group than we’re seeing than prior two quarters. This is also a group that is more actively engaged with us starting to get into that age range. We’re seeing more app downloads from them sort of starting to grasp technology better and they’re — they’re coming back out again as Jay touched on his opening remarks.

This was a group that was out in force this last weekend and through much of January.

Joe GreffJ.P. Morgan — Analyst

Great. Thank you. And then, Jay, on — on the — the U.S. sports betting side.

You were seeing, you know, not necessarily Pennsylvania and — and Michigan but just another markets that the environment’s gotten a little bit more promotional and — and some kind of craziness with customer acquisition costs. When you look, you know, the — the broad overall trends there, you know, how does that factor into your — your thinking on how you’re going to market and promote and acquire customers? How is your thinking evolved maybe over the last, I don’t know, year or so that you’ve seen more experience? And then, you know, how does that translate into what you’re doing in Michigan and, you know, thus far in Pennsylvania which I — I know were, you know, both markets are — are kind of early days. And then when you think about the initial performance in Michigan, you know, outperforming Pennsylvania, is it really just a function that, you know, Michigan is sort of a –a jump-ball market for everybody. And so, therefore you’re a little bit more on an even playing field, and so, therefore, you know, share of momentum is a little bit stronger.

Would love to hear your thoughts on all these things.

Jay SnowdenChief Executive Officer

Sure, Joe, I’ll — I’ll tackle the second one and then the first one. And the answer to the second question around the differences between Michigan and PA. I — I would point to that as the primary reason, you know? We’ve been pointing to Michigan for, I don’t know, six months now ever since we knew that Michigan was a state that was going to be ready to go sometime in the late fourth quarter or early first quarter because any other state that we could launch in out of the gate like Pennsylvania, you’re playing catch up, you know? We — we launched in Pennsylvania I think with 14 or 15 months after sports betting had gone live on — from a mobile standpoint. The Michigan for us was a great proving ground.

You know, we’re at the starting gate at the same time, the gun goes off and we’re not playing catch up. We can — we can jet out of the starting gate the same way that everybody else can. But of course, you know, we — we definitely do things different. We have this amazing partnership and it’s fully integrated media strategy with what is the most compelling and fastest-growing sports and lifestyle media company on the Internet.

So, you know, you — you look at the popularity of Barstool, where it was when we announced our investment in Barstool a year ago to where it is today and, you know, it’s — it’s — it’s been so robust, it’s beyond anything that any of us could have ever expected. And so, we’re in this really great position, Joe, where I think it’s well documented that this is kind of tying into your first question customer acquisition costs, you know, it’s — I think most analysts have done a good job researching this and, you know, it’s anywhere from $300 to $800 per customer for the space, right? What I would tell you is that for Penn, so far in the first four months and PA, despite all the Barstool fund matching that we’ve done as well as in Michigan in our first month, we are well below the bottom end of that range. We have so much room for — with so much cushion to be opportunistic and figure out what we want to do and how we want to do it. And so, we’re starting to test some — some paid media, paid advertising in PA.

In Michigan, where just dabbling. We’re happy with the early returns but we’re in this great spot where, you know, we think we can generate meaningful market share and profitability just relying on that Barstool media partnership and then anything else we do above and beyond there is for us just to continue to grow our — grow our share and do it in a way that delivers a nice return on investment. And I think that’s a very different strategy than everybody else in the space.

Joe GreffJ.P. Morgan — Analyst

Great. Thank you.

Jay SnowdenChief Executive Officer

Thanks, Joe.

Our next question comes from Shaun Kelley with Bank of America. Please proceed.

Shaun KelleyBank of America Merrill Lynch — Analyst

Hi. Good morning, Jay. Good morning, everyone. Jay, maybe to follow up on that — that last point.

I think as we’re — we’re looking at the report that came through, we’re sharing a little bit at the — the kind of corporate and other line in — in your reported financials. And, you know, that number does seem to be coming in materially better than — than I think what we are probably the street had — had model. There’s a lot going on in that line item and I’m — what I’m kind of trying to get at is, you know, are we seeing an actual material contribution on the profit side from some combination of Penn Interactive, Barstool Media, you know, and some of these other things that are going on, some of the — maybe the market access piece on — or can you help us understand that a little bit better? Because it seems like it almost entirely offset, you know, your — your corporate costs in the quarter if you could just help us unpack that a little bit.

Jay SnowdenChief Executive Officer

Yeah. Well, you’re — you are correct in — in all of your assumptions there around what sort of packed into that other category. And we will at the right time. I would anticipate probably before the end of this year, this calendar year, start to report PI out separately.

We’re not ready to do that yet but you should assume that what drove the other results is everything associated with Penn Interactive and what comes with that. We had a — we had an amazing quarter and, you know, that’s with, you know, doing — we’ve done everything that we intended to do from a marketing standpoint in the fourth quarter. We haven’t held back. Where at — at the point now where it’s, what else do we want to do because our customer acquisition costs are so much lower than everyone else’s.

We can really be thoughtful around what we do, how we do it, when we do it. And, you know, we’ve got partners that are just in no — no shortage of ideas all the time. I don’t know of how many of you guys saw but for example, one of the things that we’re doing this weekend around the Super Bowl that, you know, I — I just don’t see our competitors can do this because our — our media partners and — and their following is so compelling and so loyal but they’ve set up to where you’ve got five personalities at Barstool and there’s a contest throughout the day in the Super Bowl betting on the game throughout the game. And whoever ends up with winning the most money, if you bet $100 on our app on any bet on — on the Super Bowl, you get randomly assigned to one of these five personalities.

And if you — if your personality ends up at the Super Bowl with the most money, you get $1,000 dropped into your account. Like the — it’s just — those are ideas that no one else really maybe has thought of. But more importantly, they don’t have the people and the following within their media partnerships that would even make a difference in doing something like that And that’s something that, you know, we’re so excited about because we’ve got this list of, you know, dozens of ideas and we’re just prioritizing which ones make the most sense. Which ones are Dave and Big Cat, and the team at Barstool most excited about because you sense when they’ve got a great idea just how much energy they throw at it? And so, yeah, we think we’re in a really good position.

And I think that, you know, what you see in that other line, Shaun, is that, you know, you’re seeing really early on profitability. I’m not telling you that you should expect that every quarter because we may decide that as we launch, we want to be more aggressive in some of the things that we’re learning on the paid media side. But as of right now, we’re spending on the things that we know move the needle and we’re still able to look at our P&L and be really really impressed.

Shaun KelleyBank of America Merrill Lynch — Analyst

And, Jay, maybe just to kind of — yeah, push it a little further since I mean — yeah, I think you’ve kind of alluded to it but maybe just to say it directly. Do we think, you know, is — is reinvestment really the — the first priority and you start really analyzing the customer acquisition costs and what you can do to maybe further drive and empower the brand? How should we think about, you know, kind of upstart and launch costs as we, you know, start to accelerate, you know, some of these new markets. Because I mean, you’ve done all this, you were I guess implied, you know, profitable in the quarter and you were, you know, undoubtedly, you know, ready to ramp and — and ready to roll for, you know, for get and going in — in Michigan which is a huge launch for you. So, I mean it’s impressive and we’re trying to think about how do we extrapolate, you know, these numbers or this trend line, you know, going forward.

Jay SnowdenChief Executive Officer

Yeah, what I — what I would say to — to sort of play it safe, Shaun, is that — and I’ve said this on a previous call that I think we could definitely be profitable in ’21 if we desire to be. I’m not sure that that’s really what our No. 1 priority is. Right now, we’re trying to grow the funnel and really focus on it much on new customers, acquisition, first-time depositors as the possible in all of these markets.

And what’s interesting is that even as aggressive as we were in the way that we are aggressive and we, you know, we matched over $3million in Michigan in the first weekend on first-time deposit in wagers, and I sit back and I look at our customer acquisition cost the Michigan launch it’s still less than $200. Right. So, we have — we have a lot of flexibility here in terms of what we want to do and how we want to do it. I would assume that 2021 maybe sort of breakeven-ish on the — on the interactive side but we — we clearly have a path to ramping up profitability faster than anybody else.

And I would expect to start to see that really ring true in 2022 and beyond there.

Shaun KelleyBank of America Merrill Lynch — Analyst

Truly impressive. Thank you.

Jay SnowdenChief Executive Officer

Thanks, Shaun.

Our next question comes from Steve Wieczynski with Stifel. Please proceed.

Steve WieczynskiStifel Financial Corp. — Analyst

Hey — hey, Jay, good morning. So, you — you talked about that typical acquisition cost that’s out there today in that range of $300 to $800 I think is the range you referenced and, you know, you guys you mentioned you’re well below the — the bottom end of that range. And I guess the question is, you know, how far up that range could you guys go before you lose profitability. What I mean by that is could you get all the way up to the high end of that range and still be profitable, you know, today?

Jay SnowdenChief Executive Officer

Steve, I think at scale the answer is absolutely yes. Remember with everything that we just talked about in terms of the fourth quarter and profitability and our great Michigan launch, we’re in two states we have all of this overhead costs. We’ve been ramping our Penn Interactive division around staffing and we now have over 250 people, we’ve got 100 product development and engineers. And that’s all now being spread — all that cost is being spread across two states, right? So, you can imagine as you scale this thing to 10 states, 11 states, 12 states which is where we plan to be by the end of ’21, you have all that much more dry powder to spend on growing the funnel and widening that funnel of acquisition.

So, you know, we’re — we’re testing things now. You know, we spent some money on TV advertising in PA and Michigan around AFC, NFC Championship weekend. Not a lot but we dabble. We’re really happy with what we saw on the returns on that.

But I think most of what you’re going to see us do is just going to be, you know, around the fully integrated media strategy or strategies and you should expect what we do to be new, different, unorthodox, but super effective, and super high return.

Steve WieczynskiStifel Financial Corp. — Analyst

OK. Got you. And then — and then second question, Jay. This would, you know, this would normally be the call where you guys give guidance for the year and obviously we understand you’re not going provide guidance given the current backdrop but, you know, is there a way for us to understand how you guys are thinking about the business this year without explicitly giving guidance and I guess what I mean by that is , you know, I would assume you guys have modeled out multiple scenarios in terms of , you know, what the year could look like and just wondering what are some of the key items that you guys are watching which I assume most of it’s tied to the virus and vaccinations and stuff like that but, you know, what are some of things that you’re watching that did push you to either the high end or the low end of how the year could shake out? I hope that makes sense.

Jay SnowdenChief Executive Officer

It — it makes absolute sense, Steve. And I — we’ve already talked about Penn Interactive. So, I think, you know, for modeling purposes if you assume break-even, then somewhere in that range, slightly positive, slightly not, but break-even for the year is probably the way to model it. Everything else in our business it boils down to COVID.

And so, you know, we if — if we assume from here through the remainder of the year that restrictions and closures get no worse than they are today and you map that out for the remainder of the year and the restrictions continue to ease every few months, we look at the consensus number and say that number looks fine. But I just — to your point, to put a number out there right now where we don’t have full control over our destiny the way you do in most years, we felt like wasn’t the right approach and I’ll be surprised that many decide to do that. But it really — it really does depend on sort of what decisions are being made at the state level and at the regulatory level in terms of how we can operate and when we can really see some loosening of these restrictions.

Steve WieczynskiStifel Financial Corp. — Analyst

Got you. Thanks, Jay. Appreciate it.

Jay SnowdenChief Executive Officer

All right. Thanks, Steve.

Our next question comes from our John DeCree with Union Gaming. Please proceed.

John DeCreeUnion Gaming — Analyst

Good morning, everyone. Thanks for taking my questions. Jay, I wanted to ask a question about the core casino business, and since the initial reopening of COVID, casino marketing and promotional spend has been something that the entire industry has — has rationalized quite considerably. And I was wondering as we navigated the fourth quarter with additional lockdowns and then moving into January which sounds like things are improving nicely.

Have you seen across the industry given your footprint any change in behavior, or would you say the industry is still really focused on keeping that level of promotional and marketing at the casino level rational?

Jay SnowdenChief Executive Officer

Good morning, John. I’m going to let Todd grab that one as well.

Todd GeorgeExecutive Vice President Of Operations

Thanks, Jay. Hey, John. So, similar with what we saw, you know, coming out of a pandemic. Every quarter has really been a change for the entire industry.

In the beginning, it was more driven by capacity restrictions. So, there was — it was pointless to market rather aggressively. But I think what everybody is seeing with that model that customers continue to come back. And as long as you’re offering the — the product that’s in demand as well as the service component, everybody has remained completely rational including going into this year and — and typically that Q1 number is a pretty robust number anyway just with a seasonality component as off — as long as the weather stays pretty — pretty reasonable.

But we have not seen anybody in really any market come away from the — the approach that they’ve had through the pandemic and — and we’re encouraged by that going forward.

John DeCreeUnion Gaming — Analyst

Thanks, that’s helpful color. And, Jay, maybe one for you on some of the — the Barstool metrics that you’ve provided in your prepared remarks. I think you’ve mentioned about 7% of Barstool registrations have come from — from your MyChoice database. I was wondering if you had, you know, any data or anecdotes yet on how many MyChoice customers that have been dormant have — have maybe found Barstool and become reactivated or maybe stand-alone independent app customers that have found their way into a casino and realizing it’s early and — and with restrictions, but kind of curious how the — the cross-sell has gone the other way into the casino.

Jay SnowdenChief Executive Officer

Yeah, it’s early. So, we don’t have a whole lot to share there. I’ll give you what I — what I know which is really around our real-money gaming, Hollywood Casino in PA because that’s now been live for the longest period of time which is about 50%, five zero of the users are users that are active in our Pennsylvania casinos. About 25% were brand new to the ecosystem and 25% were reactivated.

So, they had gone dormant. I think that that percentage will be less on the sports betting side because you don’t have a direct cross-over correlation from casino gambler to a sports better. But no question we are reactivating some guests. I just don’t have any specifics for you as it relates to sports betting.

John DeCreeUnion Gaming — Analyst

Yeah. Understood. That — that’s helpful. Thanks, Jay.

Jay SnowdenChief Executive Officer

Thanks, John.

Our next question comes from Ryan Sigdahl with Craig-Hallum Capital Group. Please proceed.

Ryan SigdahlCraig-Hallum Capital Group — Analyst

Great. Thanks for taking my questions, guys. Just curious on Michigan if you’re able to kind of by — figure it out, you know, maybe even just directionally because absolute numbers are not yet but what your market share is there relative to kind of how you started in Pennsylvania.

Jay SnowdenChief Executive Officer

Yeah. That — that’s a tough one, Ryan. I don’t know, you know, I don’t want to be on record of predicting what the first 10 days in Michigan came to. I think there’s already some numbers out there that people are tracking related to geocomply and the number of pings and things of that nature.

I would just say that I think you have to look at Michigan even with regard to pings differently than you have any other state launch because Michigan is the only state to date in the U.S. that went live on the same day with both sports betting and online casino. And so, you should expect that the number of pings relative to other state launches was going to be higher in Michigan. We just — none of us know how many of those were specifically for downloading and betting on — sports betting versus downloading and betting on the online casino.

What I would, you know, we — I think we did in our slides if you look — look through those, we tried to do a good comparison of the first weekend and in the first 10 days in — in Michigan versus Pennsylvania. We all know what our market share has looked like in Pennsylvania from a handle standpoint in that 12% to 13% range and really ending the year in December with our best month to date. And you look across the board in the Michigan metrics, whether you’re looking at downloads, registration, first-time deposit, daily active users, number of wagers per day — or wagers per day, it — it — it, you know, was all significantly higher in Michigan than it was in the state of Pennsylvania. And, you know, back to one of the other questions I think it is, you know, being at the starting gate at the same time makes a huge difference.

We’re not trying to convince sports bettors to, you know, leave the app they’ve been betting on and download our app. That’s the challenge that you run into when you’re launching later than everybody else. This was a — it’s fair game. today’s the first day and download Barstool.

I think we’re seeing really good results out of the gate good.

Ryan SigdahlCraig-Hallum Capital Group — Analyst

Good. Yes, it’s really difficult question to answer. So, helpful context. And then there’s been a lot of conversation I guess about your — your hold percent recently here.

It was significantly better than kind of industry average and everyone else. Can you comment on — on what we’re seeing in Pennsylvania there as far as your hold goes?

Jay SnowdenChief Executive Officer

Yeah, I mean, look I would — this reminds me of questions we would get on volatility and blackjack and, you know, some months you get lucky and you’ll hold well and sometimes you don’t. And I think that for us in PA is we’re continuing to build relationships with really good VIPs. We’re continuing to see more and more traction with the Barstool Exclusive that’s in many of those are parlay that’s which tend to hold better but are a lot of fun. We had — just to give you a quick — quick stat during AFC, NFC Championship weekend when we launched in Michigan, between Michigan and Pennsylvania, we had 11,000 bettors that on the can’t-lose parlay with Big Cats to get the free hat, right? So, it just, you know, speaks to sort of what might drive over the long term that whole percentage.

I wouldn’t overly read into December, I don’t think you should expect 20% but — every month. Maybe we end up above average over — over the long term. But I would also remind everyone, we lost money in the first month we launched in September. So, it does go both ways and, you know, VIP play and how people do on parlays can really move that number significantly from one month to the next.

Ryan SigdahlCraig-Hallum Capital Group — Analyst

Great. Thanks, guys. Impressive early results. I’ll hop back in the queue.

Our next question comes from Bernie McTernan with Rosenblatt Securities. Please proceed.

Bernie McTernanRosenblatt Securities — Analyst

Great. Good morning. Thanks for taking the question. Jay, on — in early point that you made evaluating kind of like what else you want to do given the early success in Pennsylvania and Michigan and you clearly have proof of concept that Barstool is working, I’m interested in your thoughts on just adding other customer-acquisition channels to supercharge what’s currently going on.

So, for example, free to play with Fox at super 6 it’s routinely a top app in the IOS apps or under sports MSG Networks today just launched — announced they were launching some free-to-play, and then also there was some recent M&A in the daily fantasy section. So, just wondering if there’s any kind of increased tolerance to — or wanting to further leverage the Barstool brand on other customer-acquisition channels.

Jay SnowdenChief Executive Officer

Yeah. Bernie, it’s a great question. I’ll tell you we talk about it nonstop around the office here and with our partners at Barstool, as you can imagine. And we have a real appetite.

We’re just trying to make sure that, you know, we make the right decisions. And I think we’ve, you know, we really benefited from playing the long game and thinking about, you know, what was the right media company to align with and how to fully integrate that media company. We weren’t the first to announce a media partnership but I think when we got to announcing it, we’re really proud of the one that we put together and how it was structured, and how both sides were incentivized. And so, we’re not going to chase something because of what you read yesterday about what somebody else did.

I would tell you that we’re maniacal about, you know, improving our strategy for the long term. And yes, we’re very interested in figuring out how we can widen the funnel from an acquisition standpoint, whether that’s through media partnerships or social media influence or partnerships. There’s all sorts of things that we know we can do. We’ve just recently announced that we have relationships with Nickmercs, who is a video gamer in Michigan on an influencer basis.

We just announced that we now have a partnership in — with an influencer Logan Paul which we’re really excited about that’s just going to get going. And obviously, the more we scale the more impactful that will be because the national influencers. So, were, you know, we’re — we’re doing things, we don’t necessarily do huge splash, you know, announcements about some of the things that we do. But the things that we’re doing, we know, are delivering great returns and we’re going to continue to be really aggressive in terms of thinking through what might be next.

Bernie McTernanRosenblatt Securities — Analyst

Great. Thanks, Jay.

Our next question comes from Barry Jonas with Truist Securities. Please proceed.

Barry JonasTruist Securities — Analyst

Great. Hey, Jay, I — I guess I wanted to expand on inorganic growth or — or M&A. You know, are — are there sort of jurisdictions you’d like to be in from an omni-channel perspective that maybe M&A would — would allow to accomplish? Are there any tack-on verticals that you’re exploring at the moment?

Jay SnowdenChief Executive Officer

Yes, and yes. We’re — we’re — we’ve got a lot in the queue that we’re — we’re looking at right now. New York, obviously, is a really important state for us to have an access solution for depending on how legislation works out. There’s some, you know, differences between what the governor has said and what’s leading lawmakers want to do.

And so, we’re staying close to that. The nice thing about where we find ourselves today, Barry, is that we’ve got a terrific balance sheet and an almost $2 billion in cash. We have, you know, we’ve delivered and we’re delivering now in our second state in terms of, you know, being a major player in — in online sports betting. And we have this great footprint in all of these skins and we saw lots of excess skin.

So, as we think about how to get access to a state or how we want to think about a partnership and M&A, you know, New York is a great example. We can acquire our way into access, we can partner our way into access, and we can barter our way into access because of our excess skins. So, we’ve got a lot of flexibility in that where we’ve got a lot of conversations that are warm right now and, you know, we’ll be — hopefully, you know, announcing soon some of things that we’re — we’re — we’re currently working on with regard to access. And, you know, M&A, we — you know, we’re looking at all sorts of adjacencies because you just don’t know how this is all going to come together in the out years.

There is going to continue to be, we believe, a lot of industry convergence between gaming, sports betting, media, and tech, and potentially video gaming, e-sports. There’s — there’s a lot out there to consider and, you know, Chris Rogers and others on our team are very busy continuing to look at what — what all the potential options are for us to consider. And it’s great having partners like Barstool because they live in Internet every day and they bring some really good ideas to us that could be really interesting down the road from an M&A standpoint as well.

Barry JonasTruist Securities — Analyst

Great. And — and then I guess as a follow-up. What’s your view on vertical integration here as it relates to sports betting or interactive in general?

Jay SnowdenChief Executive Officer

It’s — it’s in that list of, you know, things that we’re considering, Barry. I would tell you that now that we’ve successfully launched in state two, and we’ve now launched the fully integrated Barstool iCasino, you know, I have to say I — I could not be happier with our partners at White Hat Gaming and Candy. It doesn’t mean that we won’t ever think about, you know, being more vertical in the tech stack down the road, it just means that — I think there’s — there’s pros and cons to both and we feel really good about, you know, we’re the — I think it’s safe to say the most important client they both have in the U.S. We move their needle and we have their attention we’ve got a lot of great resources, the relationships, and a great place.

They’re extremely responsive and they’ve delivered. So, we’ll see more — more — more to come on that one. I don’t feel like we’ve got a gun to our head to figure that out in the next week or months. We’ve got time, we’ll — we’ll be thoughtful and — and, you know, we’ll be judicious if we decide to do something because we feel like, you know, we’ve got a lot of great options in front of us.

Barry JonasTruist Securities — Analyst

Our next question comes from Ben Chaiken with Credit Suisse. Please proceed.

Ben ChaikenCredit Suisse — Analyst

Hey, how’s it going? Thanks for taking my question. It’s — in the — in the sports betting segment, it sounds like Illinois is the next state to go live. How do you think about that versus Virginia or another state in the context the comments you made earlier, Jay, around, you know, the benefits of being there when the gun goes off, so to speak? Is it just the size and opportunity of Illinois but just — just any more color you could provide there?

Jay SnowdenChief Executive Officer

Yeah. Well, a couple of things. One, there isn’t another state right now that the gun’s about to go off. I mean, Virginia has been kind of bleak, you know, there’s been operators kind of going live every five days or seven days.

And we’re cautiously optimistic we’ll be in that queue somewhere. They haven’t announced all of their licenses up to this point. So, for us, it was a pretty easy decision because you have to plan these things out. You can’t just wake up one day and say let’s do that state tomorrow.

You’ve got to work with the regulators and every state, you know, has different controls and regulations and rules around betting on college versus not, betting on local teams versus not, what sports? And so, you have to build these things out. Now, Illinois for us is going to be, we think, an amazing state. Right behind Boston, there’s no city in the country where Barstool is bigger than in Chicago. And so, Big Cats from there, you know, we’ve got a great following on the Barstool side.

We have three casinos in the state. And for us, Illinois was a no-brainer. We want to be live before March Madness. We’re cautiously optimistic we’ll be able to make that happen, we’re just working with the regulators on dates.

And after that, you know, it’s going to be a mad rush to get as many live as possible before football season. You know, that you — from a pure sports-viewing perspective of what’s live, it’s not all that exciting over June, July, and August. But it’s all about being prepared for September when college and NFL football kicks back in. So, you should expect the Indiana’s and the New Jersey’s, and then when we say New Jersey, both sports betting and online casino.

Given that we just did both in Michigan successfully, we’ll be ready to do both in New Jersey when we go live there. Colorado, Virginia, West Virginia, Iowa, Tennessee, I think that’s probably the — the lineup there. And, you know, we’re in a spot where we’ve got an opportunities, you know, to pan out what happens and how fast Maryland moves and Louisiana moves if legislation gets going in Ohio, Massachusetts. You know, we — we have a lot of flexibility on the second half of the year to continue to swap things in and out and, you know, we think the bigger the state population and the bigger the Barstool brand in a state are really big factors for us.

And of course, being at the starting gate is probably going to be factor No. 1. So, if we can be at the starting gate, then that’s probably going to move out from a prioritization standpoint.

Ben ChaikenCredit Suisse — Analyst

Got you. That’s — that’s super helpful. And then just one more on — on the land-based side. I think you mentioned that January had some positive trends.

You know, I think you’ve mentioned similar to 1Q ’20 in the south segment even stronger. You know, just as we think about the cadence presumably once you had a lot of variation given the development of COVID with March closures, et cetera. So, does that comment equate to the first half of 1Q or the second half? Or just — just any more color as you can just try and bracket kind of where you guys stand. Thanks.

Todd GeorgeExecutive Vice President Of Operations

This is — this is Todd. I’ll — I’ll take that. So, I — I think what we’re seeing — if you can extrapolate the South, and I would even throw in a state like Iowa that — that’s had few restrictions as well. The year-over-year comparisons are actually pretty favorable for us.

So, even when looking at this last weekend where Ohio started to ease restrictions just by moving the curfew back an hour, we — we saw tremendous pick there. So, I — you know, Illinois now being open and working through the restrictions that are in these states start to ease the restrictions. We’re encouraged when we kind of look at the — the southern region as what, you know, every region can look like as we go forward. So, and again, keep in mind that last year, Q1 — the end of Q1 is where we started to see the COVID impact.

So, you know, we’re optimistic about — about the way Q1 kind of shapes up.

Jay SnowdenChief Executive Officer

I — I would just add that Todd and I were talking yesterday for a while about this pent-up demand and it’s real, it’s real. And what we’re seeing in states that to Todd’s point loosen some of these curfews and restrictions, you’ll see a bump the next calendar day. People want to get out of house. And I think as the — the COVID vaccinations continue to roll and treatments prove more and more effective, the weather warms up because you remember most of our portfolio were cons — over-index concentrated in Midwest and Northeast.

If you get to the March, April, May, and if all these things are still moving in the right direction, I think you’re going to see some real pent-up demand like we’re seeing in the south right now.

Ben ChaikenCredit Suisse — Analyst

Got you. I appreciate it. Thank you.

Our next question comes from Stephen Grambling with Goldman Sachs. Please proceed.

Steven GramblingGoldman Sachs — Analyst

Hi. Thanks for taking me in. On the media business, you noted solid revenue growth and a bunch of good stats on the following growing as well. Can you provide a little bit of incremental color on how the revenue mix may be shifting between the big buckets of advertising merchandise, etc?

Jay SnowdenChief Executive Officer

To make sure I got that question right, Steven, you’re — you’re saying with regard to our sports betting results?

Steven GramblingGoldman Sachs — Analyst

With — within the JDs specifically. I know that you reference that the media brand keeps growing its presence and that it feels like it might be an underappreciated part of the story. I’m just curious how the revenue mix on the Barstool media side might be evolving.

Jay SnowdenChief Executive Officer

Got it. Sorry about that. Yeah. I — I’m trying to be thoughtful around what I can say because remember we’re 36% investors.

We don’t, you know, control or own majority today and I don’t want to speak for Erika Nardini about — too much about her business, of course. What I would say is that 2020 was the best year on record. The growth was unbelievable. There was a little bit of a pocket in that March-April like every other company in the U.S.

and probably the world for that matter was like, what’s going to happen and you saw some pullback on advertising spend. But really from May through the end of the year, every category, very strong and, you know, this is something that I actually don’t think gets enough attention. I actually appreciate you asking the question, Steven, because we are going to own the majority if not all of Barstool at the third anniversary which is only two years away. And you look at how there’s been some really interesting transactions in the podcast space, sports media.

We got a call the other day about a tiny little sports media company and the asking price compared to what we’re going to end up paying for potentially all of Barstool makes me feel really good about, you know, the value of Barstool. And it’s interesting too, we, you know, we talked about this with — with Dave and Erika and Dan a few times that, you know, Barstool Sports by itself was probably worth X and had the potential to get to Y sort of if they stayed on a stand-alone basis. And Pen maybe was worth A and had potential to get to B. But then you put the two companies to bet together and — and it became exponential in terms of what the platform that each provided for one another and the exposure and access to different customer bases.

And they now have everybody on Wall Street following them and we have, you know, everybody — not everybody but so many in that 21-to-40-year-old age group following us and wearing Penn gear. So, it’s, you know, there’s so much synergy. The companies were very complimentary for one another. And I think that value, again, without getting into too much detail, and I’m sure Erika will share whatever she’s comfortable sharing at conferences, that value is only going to continue to grow given all of the great things that they’ve done and how they’ve proven to be just so agile.

I mean, who would have thought that, you know, Davey Day Trader would be a thing, let alone a huge thing. And unboxing promotions would have millions of viewers every night and live streams of them playing digital blackjack would — would garner so much attention. But, you know, there — I’d say — and I’ll tell you’re quite sick to hear me say they’re — they’re — they’re marketing geniuses and we’re really thrilled to be partner with them and thrilled to be the future owners of that brand.

Steven GramblingGoldman Sachs — Analyst

Makes sense. That’s helpful. They’ve essentially become a platform for influencers. As an unrelated follow-up to I think this is John’s earlier question about the customer overlap between channels.

Can you touch on what you’re seeing and expecting in converting sports-betting customers to iCasino?

Jay SnowdenChief Executive Officer

Yeah. Happy to. Now, this is really early. We’re talking two and a half days early but, you know, we had targets internally.

I won’t share what those were in terms of what percentage of our Barstool online sports betters we would be able to convert into Barstool iCasino customers. And we’re really close to what our goal was after two and a half days, and those days were Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday which makes me feel really good heading into the weekend. We’re now over 15% conversion. You know, it’s so smooth and — and easy to find, and the app has got its own — its own place on the bottom as well as in the menu bar.

It’s — it’s very intuitive. It’s one wallet, you get in, play some blackjack or some roulette, maybe at halftime of the game and I think this is where we can do things that are really differentiated around Dave and Big Cat and the other Barstool personalities who maybe people are staying — same tune — tuned in throughout the game as to what they’re doing betting on sports. But then you’ve got halftime and what are they doing when they go play blackjack or tinkering around with new slot machines and, you know, we — we definitely one of the things that we will do — I don’t share how we’re going to do it but we will do is we’re definitely going to be in the business of creating our own gaming content around Barstool — in our own games around Barstool because they’ve got a lot of great ideas and we know that’s something that would be really attractive to their — their followers.

Our next question comes from Thomas Allen with Morgan Stanley. Please proceed.

Thomas AllenMorgan Stanley — Analyst

Thanks. So, starting up in the brick and mortar business. I think you offered up Todd to talk more about the January trend. I guess, Ben asked a question earlier a little bit but if you think about third-quarter ’20 your EBITDA was up 11% year over year, fourth quarter just now, you’re down 9%.

Like it — all the trends kind of in between those? Are we seeing growth? And I remember that January, February ’20 were really strong. So, can you just put all this into context a little bit more? Thank you.

Todd GeorgeExecutive Vice President Of Operations

Sure. Thanks, Thomas. The — the, you know, I — let me start out by saying, you know, January just kind of wrapping up here, we’re still going through the process. But we’re encouraged right now with — with January being really in line carrying in large part by the South Region again but being very much in line with prior year.

February, as Jay spoke to, Friday and Saturday were the best volumes we’ve seen from a — from a slot standpoint since Q1 of last year. And even from a table standpoint, it was the second best Friday, Saturday we’ve seen So, you know, then as the storm wiped out much of that in the northeast. So, I — I think if we look at where February is trending now and we can stay close, and then there’s potential upside for March. So, you have to be safe, I would say it’s somewhere between.

But, you know, there is upside potential there.

Thomas AllenMorgan Stanley — Analyst

Helpful. And then, Jay, bigger picture. You stated a number of times you — you expect to be a Top 3 player in sports betting. You know, you’re increasingly confident that and how are you balancing kind of spending a lot with your — your not versus just, you know, market share? Thanks.

Jay SnowdenChief Executive Officer

Yeah, you know, another one that we talk about a lot, Thomas, are we satisfied with being No. 3 everywhere forever. No, we’re not. And we don’t plan to be.

Are we satisfied out of the gate that we’ve spent virtually well, what to say, very little in paid media and we’re at No. 3 in PA and have been since we launched that, you know, every month? And we think Michigan we’re off to a great start. We’ll see where that has us from a market share standpoint. Yeah, we — we’re going to figure out as we go what are the best forms of widening and filling that funnel at the top.

And we’ve got a lot ideas that we’re testing now and there’s slew more — a slew more to come. So, we’ll — what I think you should assume is that we are going to be Top 3. We said that before we ever launched. We’re delivering on that.

We’re more profitable faster than anyone else and we’re delivering on that and continue to deliver on that pledge again faster than anybody else. And as we scale, we just end up with a lot more dry powder to be more aggressive in the areas of widening that funnel, and customer acquisition that we believe is driving the best returns.

Thomas AllenMorgan Stanley — Analyst

Makes sense. Thank you.

Jay SnowdenChief Executive Officer

Thanks, Thomas. We’ll take one more question, Frank.

Operator

We have a question from David Katz with Jefferies. Please proceed.

David KatzJefferies — Analyst

Hi, good morning, everyone. Congratulations and thanks for taking my question. Jay, you’ve covered an awful lot and I wanted to go back to just the market entry. What are the gating factors — what other gating factors are there between, you know, the target of 10 markets this year versus, you know, turning it into 12 or 8 for that matter, you know? Is it just regulatory getting the app, right? You know, I imagine it’s more than one thing and I’d love to talk about that list.

Jay SnowdenChief Executive Officer

You’ve got most of it right, David. And the reason we say at least 10 is because as we sit here today, I don’t know what 11 and 12 would be. 12, 10 get — 10 — 10 gets you through even states like West Virginia and Iowa which are smaller population, it gets you into a state like Tennessee which is not where we operate but it’s an open market. It assumes that we’re live in Virginia if we get the good news there which again, we’re cautiously optimistic that will happen.

So, yeah, we’re — we’ve sort of pegged the 10 states that we know we can be live in, it’s in our control, and that we want to be live in. The big question would be what happens — and this would be a good problem to have, what happens if Massachusetts, Missouri, Kansas, name your state, Ohio, Texas. If one of those legalized and can be ready by football season then we’re going to be figuring that out if we want to be at the starting gate. So, you know, being at the starting gate is really important by the population of state or population size of the state, popularity of Barstool in that given state.

Those are — those are all factors for us, but you’re right in that, you know, you can’t just snap your fingers and be live in every state tomorrow because you have to, you know, you have a — a unique bespoke app in every one of these states that has to deliver on what the regulators want and what the rules are and what games you can bet on and all that. And so, that just takes a little bit of time. So, I think what you should expect is that, you know, the cadence from here on out throughout the year is going to be much more rapid than what you saw from state one to state two.

David KatzJefferies — Analyst

Perfect. And if I could go back to just one comment from the release that you’ve talked about a little bit which is the, you know, the — the undervalued nature of the media platform. I — obviously, it’s popularity and proliferation are obvious. But for we casino people, you know, to sit down and, you know, try and pencil something, are we looking at, you know, comparable, you know, value transactions or — or is there some, you know, more detailed way that we could sit down and pencil some value to it which, you know, clearly is warranted?

Jay SnowdenChief Executive Officer

Yeah, I think that the best thing you could do for now because their, you know, their financials aren’t — aren’t public, you should assume that, you know, what we said they were at — at time of awkward — or at time of investment a year ago, the financials have gotten a lot better. And I think importantly, you just have to look at what sort of transactions have happened since the time of our announcement And, you know, I would look at podcasting, I would look at media companies and you can look at a — a multiple of revenue is probably the safest way to do it. And in any way that you play around with that math and sort of, you know, look at what’s available from a comp standpoint, David, I think you would definitely come to the conclusion that it’s worth a lot more than what we’re going to end up paying.

David KatzJefferies — Analyst

Noted. Appreciate that. Thank you very much.
