Isle of Capri swings back to profit, G3 Newswire | Poker & eGaming News | Scoop.it

US local’s operator Isle of Capri Casinos saw a return to profit in its first quarter making more money, on its gaming floors, from its hotel rooms and from food and beverage despite a general economic softness and a pull-back in discretionary spending.

 

Net revenues for the quarter increased to $235.8m from $227.6m although comparisons to prior year were impacted by the closure of five properties for part of the first quarter in fiscal year 2012 due to flooding of the Mississippi River.
