Carol Anderson, the company’s CFO, explained that the consolidated adjusted EBITDA margin of 28.8% was higher when compared to the pre-pandemic fiscal quarter in 2019. However, she explained that when compared to the same period in 2021, “the Adjusted EBITDA margin has declined due to the continued reintroduction of some lower margin non-gaming amenities since the prior-year period.”
