(1)  Revenues reported are based on monthly average exchange rates, report
     same store revenues and are in USD millions. From month to month,
     exchange rate fluctuations could cause an impact on revenues as
     compared to the previous year.
(2)  2014 and 2013 revenues consist of all gaming revenue in the country
     plus revenue from our fully-owned Fiesta Hotel and management fees for
     the Thunderbird Hotel - Pardo, Thunderbird Hotel - Carrera and
     Thunderbird Hotel - El Pueblo, which are owned by third parties.
(3)  Effective January 1, 2013, IFRS 11 changed the way that joint ventures
     are accounted for whereby proportional consolidation is no longer
     allowed and equity accounting should be applied to joint ventures.
     Until further notice and for the convenience of the reader and for the
     illustrative purposes of this monthly revenue report, the Group has
     elected to continue to show the Costa Rican joint venture proportional
     revenues, which vary from the way that the Group accounts for these
     revenues in our Interim and Annual Financial Statements.
(4)  In October 2013, we reduced 290 gaming positions in Costa Rica that
     cost more to maintain on the floor (because of per position gaming
     taxes) than their respective revenue. As a result, period revenue has
     dropped, but should be reflected in enhanced EBITDA from the related
     properties.
