Item 8.01     Other Events



Borrowing under Revolving Credit Facilities



As previously disclosed, the Company is party to a $10.0 million Revolving Credit Facility (the “Revolving Facility”), the material terms of which are described in the Note 7 to the Consolidated Financial Statements included in Item 8, “Financial Statements and Supplementary Data” in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 13, 2020 (the “Form 10-K”), and incorporated by reference.



As of December 31, 2019, the Company had no outstanding borrowings under the Revolving Facility. On March 17, 2020, the Company provided notice to the lenders pursuant to that certain Credit Agreement, dated as of December 6, 2019 (the “Credit Agreement”), to draw down on the Revolving Facility in an amount equal to $10.0 million, resulting in a total of $180.0 million outstanding under the Credit Agreement. The scheduled maturity date of the Revolving Facility is December 6, 2024. A copy of the Credit Agreement is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on December 9, 2019.



The Company elected to borrow under its Revolving Facility to provide liquidity in light of the closure of the Company’s properties as a result of the spread of COVID-19. The $10.0 million supplements the Company’s approximately $51.2 million cash on hand as of February 29, 2020.

Century Casinos Announces Additional Casino Closures in Response to COVID-19 Pandemic



Colorado Springs, Colorado, March 18, 2020 – Century Casinos, Inc. (Nasdaq Capital Market®: CNTY) (“Century Casinos” or the “Company”) announced today that it temporarily closed its Canadian, West Virginia and Missouri casinos on Tuesday, March 17, 2020 to comply with quarantines issued by governments in each jurisdiction to contain the spread of COVID-19. These closures follow the closures of the Company’s Polish and Colorado casinos per government directives in those jurisdictions.



The Company also closed Century Casino Bath on March 17, 2020 to contain the spread of COVID-19. The casino will remain closed indefinitely while the Company continues to evaluate its options for this property, which could include permanent closure or a sale or other disposition.
