MOHEGAN TRIBAL GAMING AUTHORITY
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(unaudited)

NOTE 1—ORGANIZATION AND ACQUISITION OF THE NIAGARA GAMING BUNDLE:
Organization
The Mohegan Tribe of Indians of Connecticut (the “Mohegan Tribe”) established the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority in July 1995 with the exclusive authority to conduct and regulate gaming activities for the Mohegan Tribe on tribal lands and the non-exclusive authority to conduct such activities elsewhere. In June 2017, the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority announced a corporate effort to align its brand image with its expanding business, and accordingly rebranded, and is now doing business as Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment (the “Company”). The Company is primarily engaged in the ownership, operation and development of integrated entertainment facilities both domestically and internationally.
Acquisition of the Niagara Gaming Bundle
In September 2018, MGE Niagara Entertainment Inc. (“MGE Niagara”), an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, was selected by the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (the “OLG”) to be the service provider for the Fallsview Casino Resort, Casino Niagara and the future 5,000-seat Niagara Falls Entertainment Centre, all in Niagara Falls, Canada (the “Niagara Gaming Bundle”). Following its selection, MGE Niagara entered into a Transition and Asset Purchase Agreement with the OLG and the Ontario Gaming Assets Corporation. Pursuant to the terms of this agreement, MGE Niagara agreed to acquire certain assets associated with the Niagara Gaming Bundle and to perform certain transition activities in order to facilitate the transition of the operational responsibilities from the previous operator to MGE Niagara.
On June 11, 2019 (the “Closing Date”), MGE Niagara completed the acquisition of the Niagara Gaming Bundle (the “Acquisition”), assumed the day-to-day operations of the properties under the terms of a 21-year Casino Operating and Services Agreement (the “COSA”) with the OLG and engaged in a series of transactions related thereto, including the following:
Entered into a lease agreement with the OLG to lease the Fallsview Casino Resort and related administrative office space. This lease agreement requires MGE Niagara to make monthly payments of 2.2 million Canadian dollars ($1.7 million as of June 30, 2019) until the end of the lease term on March 31, 2040. This lease is classified as an operating lease in accordance with guidance provided by Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 840, “Leases” (“ASC 840”).
Entered into a lease agreement with a third-party investor to lease Casino Niagara and related license agreements to operate an adjacent parking lot and the right for patrons to use an adjacent parking garage. The lease agreement requires MGE Niagara to make monthly payments of approximately 500,000 Canadian dollars (approximately $381,000 as of June 30, 2019) until the end of the lease term on March 31, 2040 in exchange for the rights under the lease and licenses. The present value of the future payments has been allocated to the respective rights based upon their relative fair value and, in accordance with guidance provided by ASC 840 and ASC Topic 360, “Intangibles - Goodwill and Other”, accounted for as follows: (i) 36.9 million Canadian dollars ($28.1 million as of June 30, 2019) represents the Casino Niagara lease, which is classified as a capital lease, (ii) 6.9 million Canadian dollars ($5.3 million as of June 30, 2019) represents an intangible asset, which is being amortized over the term of the lease on a straight line basis and (iii) the residual allocation of the lease payments is classified as an operating land lease.
Committed to entering into a lease agreement with a third-party to lease the Niagara Falls Entertainment Centre following the completion of its construction, which is expected to occur by the end of calendar 2019. Rental payments are still to be determined. The Company is deemed, for accounting purposes only, to be the owner of this construction project, despite not being the legal owner. Accordingly, the Company capitalized 102.9 million Canadian dollars ($78.4 million as of June 30, 2019) for amounts paid as a build-to-suit asset within property and equipment, net and recorded a corresponding build-to-suit liability.
The purchase price of the Acquisition was approximately 96 million Canadian dollars (approximately $72 million), net of cash acquired of approximately 57 million Canadian dollars (approximately $43 million). The consideration paid for working capital is subject to post-closing adjustments, which are not expected to be material. MGE Niagara funded the Acquisition with proceeds from borrowings under a 100.0 million Canadian dollar ($76.2 million as of June 30, 2019) term loan facility, the issuance of a 40.0 million Canadian dollar ($30.5 million as of June 30, 2019) convertible debenture to a third-party investor and a 60.0 million Canadian dollar ($45.7 million as of June 30, 2019) investment by the Company (refer to Note 5). The Acquisition was accounted for as a purchase of a business under the acquisition method of accounting in accordance with guidance provided by ASC Topic 805, “Business Combinations”.

assets and liabilities. Certain immaterial line items in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements for the three months and nine months ended June 30, 2018 have been reclassified to conform to fiscal 2019 presentation.

In its first quarter of fiscal 2019, the Company made an out-of-period correction, which increased depreciation and amortization expense by $6.3 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2019. This adjustment resulted from the assignment, in a prior year, of an incorrect useful life to depreciate a long lived asset related to tenant allowances.

In its second quarter of fiscal 2019, the Company committed to a plan to repurpose the recently closed Casino of the Wind section of Mohegan Sun. In connection with this decision, the Company determined that certain assets related to the Casino of the Wind had no alternative future use. Accordingly, depreciation on these assets was accelerated, which increased depreciation and amortization expense by $21.6 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2019.
Significant Accounting Policies
The significant accounting policies impacted by the acquisition of the Niagara Gaming Bundle were as follows:
Principles of Consolidation
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its majority and wholly-owned subsidiaries and entities. MGE Niagara is deemed to be a variable interest entity as the third-party investor has substantive participation rights and significant influence over MGE Niagara’s operations. The accounts of MGE Niagara are consolidated into the accounts of the Company as the Company is deemed to be the primary beneficiary of MGE Niagara. In consolidation, all inter-company balances and transactions were eliminated.
Acquisitions
The Company accounts for acquisitions using the acquisition method of accounting, which requires that assets acquired and liabilities assumed be recognized at fair value as of the acquisition date. The purchase price of acquisitions is allocated to the tangible and identifiable intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on estimated fair values and any excess purchase price over the identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed, if any, is recorded as goodwill. The Company may use independent valuation specialists to assist in determining the estimated fair values of assets acquired and liabilities assumed, which could require certain significant management assumptions and estimates.
Leases
The Company accounts for leases in accordance with guidance provided by ASC 840, which requires that leases be evaluated and classified as operating leases or capital leases for financial reporting purposes. Leases that meet one or more of the capital lease criteria under this guidance are recorded as capital leases. All other leases are recorded as operating leases. Capital leases are recorded at the lower of the fair value of the leased assets or the present value of future minimum lease payments and are amortized in accordance with guidance provided by ASC Topic 840-30, “Leases - Capital Leases”.
Revenues from Casino Operating and Services Agreement
MGE Niagara operates the Niagara Gaming Bundle under the terms of the COSA. Pursuant to Canadian law, the OLG retains final legal authority over gaming operations in Canada. Accordingly, MGE Niagara is deemed to be acting as an agent with respect to gaming revenues earned under the COSA and, therefore, recognizes such revenues net of amounts due to the OLG. MGE Niagara is deemed to be acting as a principal with respect to non-gaming revenues earned under the COSA. The COSA represents a series of distinct goods and services and, therefore, is deemed to be a single performance obligation. The transaction price under the COSA includes both fixed and variable consideration. The fixed consideration is comprised of an annual service provider fee and reimbursement of permitted capital expenditures and other approved expenses. The fixed consideration is recognized as revenue on a straight line basis over the term of the COSA. The variable consideration consists of 70% of Gaming Revenues (as defined under the COSA), in excess of a guaranteed annual minimum amount payable to the OLG (the “Threshold”). Annual Threshold amounts are contractually established and vary from year to year. If Gaming Revenues are less than the Threshold for any given year, the Company is obligated to make a payment to cover the related shortfall. The variable consideration is recognized as revenue as services are rendered under the terms of the COSA. The Company measures its progress in satisfying this performance obligation based on the output method, which aligns with the benefits provided to the OLG. Projected revenues are estimated based on the most likely amount within a range of possible outcomes to the extent that a significant reversal in the amount of cumulative revenues recognized is not probable of occurring. The difference between revenues recognized and cash received is recorded as a contract asset or liability. In the event a contract asset is recorded, such asset will be assessed at least annually for impairment. As of June 30, 2019, contract assets of $541,000 and $4.1 million related to the COSA are recorded within other current assets and other assets, respectively.

Income Taxes
MGE Niagara is subject to income taxes in Canada. The Company accounts for income taxes based on the asset and liability method. Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on the differences between the financial reporting basis and tax basis of the assets and liabilities, and are measured using statutory rates that will be in effect when the differences are expected to reverse. For the three months and nine months ended June 30, 2019, the provision for income taxes was relatively insignificant.
iGame License
On January 25, 2019, Mohegan Sun Pocono entered into a revenue sharing agreement with Unibet Interactive Inc. (“Unibet”), pursuant to which Mohegan Sun Pocono will allow Unibet the use of its interactive gaming (“iGame”) license to operate a branded retail sportsbook at Mohegan Sun Pocono and an online gaming service in exchange for a portion of the related revenues earned by Unibet. In connection with this agreement, Unibet paid the required $8.0 million iGame license fee to the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board on behalf of Mohegan Sun Pocono. The Company recorded the $8.0 million iGame license fee, which is reimbursable to Unibet under certain conditions, as an indefinite useful life intangible asset with a corresponding long-term contract liability. The intangible asset will be assessed at least annually for impairment.
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
The Company applies the following fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs utilized to measure fair value into three levels:
Level 1 - Quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets;
Level 2 - Quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in inactive markets or valuations based on models where the significant inputs are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data; and
Level 3 - Valuations based on models where the significant inputs are unobservable. The unobservable inputs reflect the Company's estimates or assumptions that market participants would utilize in pricing such assets or liabilities.
The Company's assessment of the significance of a particular input requires judgment and may affect the valuation of financial assets and liabilities and their placement within the fair value hierarchy.
The carrying amount of cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash and cash equivalents, receivables, trade payables and certain promissory notes, including a convertible debenture and redemption note payable, approximates fair value. The estimated fair values of the Company's long-term debt were as follows (in thousands):

NOTE 3—NEW ACCOUNTING STANDARDS:
The following accounting standards were adopted during the three months and nine months ended June 30, 2019:
ASU 2014-09
In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (the “FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606)” (“ASC 606”), which outlines a new, single comprehensive model for entities to use in accounting for revenue arising from contracts with customers.
Effective October 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASC 606, on a modified retrospective basis, for all contracts at the date of initial adoption. The Company recognized the cumulative-effect of initially adopting ASC 606 as a decrease to retained earnings and a corresponding increase to other current liabilities. Comparative information for the three months and nine months ended

The items most significantly impacted by the adoption of ASC 606 were as follows:
(1) ASC 606 modified the accounting related to loyalty points. The Company’s loyalty reward programs allow patrons to utilize their reward membership cards to earn loyalty points that are redeemable for complimentary items such as food and beverage, lodging and retail products. Under ASC 606, the Company is required to utilize a deferred revenue model to reduce gaming revenues by the estimated fair value of loyalty points earned by patrons and recognize the related revenues when such loyalty points are redeemed. The deferred revenue liability is based on the estimated stand-alone selling price (“SSP”) of loyalty points earned after factoring in the likelihood of redemption. Prior to the adoption of ASC 606, the liability for unredeemed loyalty points was estimated based on expected redemption rates and estimated costs of the goods and services to be provided.
(2) ASC 606 modified the accounting related to promotional allowances. The Company no longer recognizes revenues for complimentary items provided to patrons or for goods and services provided to patrons in connection with loyalty point redemptions as gross revenues with a corresponding offset to promotional allowances to arrive at net revenues. The majority of such amounts previously included within promotional allowances now offset gaming revenues based on an allocation of revenues to performance obligations utilizing SSP. These changes resulted in the elimination of promotional allowances and the reclassification of revenues between the various revenue line items.

(3) ASC 606 modified the accounting related to cash giveaways. The Company now records cash giveaways as a reduction to gaming revenues. Prior to the adoption of ASC 606, the Company recorded cash giveaways as expenses. This change resulted in decreases in both gaming revenues and expenses.
    
(4) ASC 606 modified gross versus net presentation related to certain fees. The Company now records mandatory service charges on food and beverage items and wide area progressive operator fees on a gross basis, with amounts received from patrons recorded as revenues and the corresponding amounts paid recorded as expenses. This change resulted in increases in both revenues and expenses.
The Company’s revenues from contracts with customers consist of gaming, food and beverage, hotel, retail, entertainment and convention related transactions, as well as management and development services related to management and development contracts with third-party facilities.
The transaction price in a gaming contract is the difference between gaming wins and losses, not the total amount wagered. The transaction price in a racing contract, inclusive of live racing at the Company’s facilities, as well as import and export arrangements, is the commission received from the pari-mutuel pool less contractual fees and obligations, which primarily consist of purse funding requirements, simulcasting fees, tote fees and certain pari-mutuel taxes that are directly related to racing operations. The transaction prices in food and beverage, hotel, retail, entertainment and convention contracts are the net amounts collected for such goods and services. Sales and other taxes collected on behalf of governmental authorities are accounted for on a net basis and are not included in revenues or expenses. The transaction prices in management and development service contracts are the amounts collected for services rendered in accordance with contractual terms, inclusive of reimbursable costs and expenses.
Gaming transactions involve two performance obligations for patrons participating in the Company’s loyalty reward programs and a single performance obligation for patrons that do not participate. The Company applies a practical expedient by accounting for gaming contracts on a portfolio basis, as such contracts share similar characteristics. The Company does not expect the effects on its condensed consolidated financial statements under this approach to differ materially versus under an individual contract basis. Revenues allocated to gaming performance obligations are recognized when gaming occurs as such activities are settled immediately. Revenues allocated to the loyalty points deferred revenue liability are recognized when loyalty points are redeemed. The deferred revenue liability is based on the estimated SSP of the loyalty points earned after factoring in the likelihood of redemption.
Food and beverage, hotel, retail, entertainment and convention transactions have been determined to be separate, stand-alone performance obligations and revenues for such contracts are recognized when the related goods and services are transferred to patrons. Revenues from contracts which include a combination of these transactions are allocated on a pro rata basis based on the SSP of the goods and services.
Management and development services have been determined to be separate, stand-alone performance obligations and revenues for such contracts are recognized when the related services are performed.
Revenue Disaggregation
The Company is primarily engaged in the ownership, operation and development of integrated entertainment facilities both domestically and internationally. The Company’s current operations are focused within Connecticut and Pennsylvania. The Company also currently manages other gaming facilities elsewhere within the United States and Canada. The Company generates revenues by providing the following types of goods and services: gaming, food and beverage, hotel, retail, entertainment and other and management and development.

Contract and Contract-Related Liabilities
A difference may exist between the timing of cash receipts from patrons and the recognition of revenues, resulting in a contract or contract-related liability. In general, the Company has three types of such liabilities: (1) outstanding gaming chips and slot tickets liability, which represents amounts owed in exchange for outstanding gaming chips and slot tickets held by patrons; (2) loyalty points deferred revenue liability, as discussed above; and (3) patron advances and other liability, which primarily represents funds deposited in advance by patrons for gaming and advance payments by patrons for goods and services such as advance ticket sales, deposits on rooms and convention space and gift card purchases. These liabilities are generally expected to be recognized as revenues within one year and are recorded within other current liabilities.

ASU 2016-18
           In November 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-18, “Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Restricted Cash” (“ASU 2016-18”). ASU 2016-18 requires that a statement of cash flows explain the total change during the period in cash, cash equivalents and amounts generally described as restricted cash or restricted cash equivalents. The Company adopted ASU 2016-18 in its first quarter of fiscal 2019 on a retrospective basis. Transfers between cash, cash equivalents and amounts generally described as restricted cash or restricted cash equivalents are no longer included within investing activities and, as such, the details of such transfers are not reported as cash flow activities in the statement of cash flows. This resulted in a $130.2 million change to net cash flows used in investing activities for the nine months ended June 30, 2018.

The following accounting standards will be adopted in future reporting periods:
ASU 2016-02
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, “Leases (Topic 842)” (“ASU 2016‑02”), which will require, among other things, lessees to recognize a right-of-use asset and a lease liability for leases with terms in excess of 12 months and the disclosure of key information about leasing arrangements. In July 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-11, “Leases (Topic 842): Targeted Improvements” and ASU No. 2018-10, “Codification Improvements to Topic 842, Leases”, which clarified various aspects of the new standard. ASU 2016‑02 is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2018, with early adoption permitted. ASU 2016-02 provides various optional practical expedients in transition, which the Company continues to evaluate. In July 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-11, “Leases - Targeted Improvements,” as an update to ASU 2016-02. This update added an optional transition method of adoption which allows for the recognition of the cumulative-effect of initially adopting ASU 2016-02 as an adjustment to retained earnings in the period of adoption without recasting prior periods' financial statements. The Company will adopt ASU 2016-02 in its first quarter of fiscal 2020, on a modified retrospective basis, and will recognize the cumulative-effect of its initial adoption as an adjustment to retained earnings as of October 1, 2019. While the Company continues to evaluate the impact ASU 2016-02 will have on its financial statements and related disclosures, the actual impact of this new standard will be dependent upon the Company’s lease portfolio at the time of adoption. The adoption of ASU 2016-02 is expected to have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements, as the Company has significant operating lease commitments that are off-balance sheet under current accounting standards.
ASU 2018-13
In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-13, “Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Disclosure Framework-Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement” (“ASU 2018-13”), which adds, amends and removes certain disclosure requirements related to fair value measurements. ASU 2018-13 requires enhanced disclosures on valuation techniques and inputs that a reporting entity uses to determine its measures of fair value, including judgments and assumptions that the entity makes and the uncertainties in the fair value measurements as of the reporting date. ASU 2018-13 is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2019. Certain amended or eliminated disclosure requirements may be adopted earlier, while certain additional disclosure requirements can be adopted on its effective date. In addition, certain changes required by this new standard require retrospective adoption, while other changes must be adopted prospectively. The Company is currently evaluating the impact ASU 2018-13 will have on its financial statements.

NOTE 4—COWLITZ PROJECT:
On December 4, 2018, the Company received $106.6 million from the Cowlitz Tribal Gaming Authority. This amount represented the full repayment of the then-outstanding notes and accrued interest, through the repayment date, due to Salishan-Mohegan, LLC in connection with the development of ilani Casino Resort, totaling $32.0 million and $74.6 million, respectively.
    On January 1, 2019, the Mohegan Tribe exchanged its interest in Salishan-Mohegan, LLC and a related entity for total consideration of $10.0 million, which the Company believes represented its fair value. Effective January 1, 2019, the Company receives 100% of the management fees related to the Cowlitz Project, as well as the Mohegan Tribe's share of development fees.

MGE Niagara Credit Facilities
On June 10, 2019, MGE Niagara entered into a Credit Agreement with, among others, Bank of Montreal, as administrative agent, and the lenders party thereto (the “MGE Niagara Credit Agreement”), providing for senior secured credit facilities in the aggregate principal amount of 290.0 million Canadian dollars ($221.0 million as of June 30, 2019) (the “MGE Niagara Credit Facilities”), comprised of a revolving credit facility in the amount of 190.0 million Canadian dollars ($144.8 million as of June 30, 2019) (the “MGE Niagara Revolving Facility”) and a term loan facility in the amount of 100.0 million Canadian dollars ($76.2 million as of June 30, 2019) (the “MGE Niagara Term Loan Facility”). MGE Niagara is an unrestricted subsidiary under the Company’s existing credit facilities and indenture and the MGE Niagara Credit Facilities are non-recourse to the Company and its restricted subsidiaries thereunder.
The Company incurred $3.1 million in costs in connection with these transactions. Financing fees totaling $2.0 million were capitalized as an asset and are being amortized over the term of the related debt based on the effective interest method. The remaining $1.1 million was reflected as a debt discount and is being amortized over the term of the related debt based on the effective interest method.
The MGE Niagara Revolving Facility provides for (i) borrowings and bankers’ acceptances denominated in Canadian dollars or U.S. dollars and up to 20.0 million Canadian-dollar ($15.2 million as of June 30, 2019) equivalent of borrowings in the form of swingline loans and (ii) the issuance of up to 100.0 million Canadian dollars ($76.2 million as of June 30, 2019) of letters of credit. Proceeds from borrowings under the MGE Niagara Revolving Facility may be used by MGE Niagara for general corporate

purposes, including working capital, capital expenditures and the issuance of letters of credit. Borrowings under the MGE Niagara Term Loan Facility are denominated in Canadian dollars. On June 11, 2019, MGE Niagara borrowed 100.0 million aggregate principal amount of Canadian dollar ($76.2 million as of June 30, 2019) term loans under the MGE Niagara Term Loan Facility and caused a Canadian dollar letter of credit to be issued to the OLG under the MGE Niagara Revolving Facility, in each case, for the purposes of funding the acquisition of the Niagara Gaming Bundle.
The MGE Niagara Credit Facilities mature on June 10, 2024. The MGE Niagara Term Loan Facility is repayable, in quarterly installments, at a rate of 5.0 million Canadian dollars ($3.8 million as of June 30, 2019) per annum, commencing September 30, 2019.
Borrowings under the MGE Niagara Credit Facilities accrue interest as follows: (i) for Prime Rate Loans (as defined in the MGE Niagara Credit Agreement) denominated in Canadian dollars, the applicable prime rate (subject to a 0.00% floor) plus a total leverage-based margin of 100 to 200 basis points, (ii) for USBR Loans (as defined in the MGE Niagara Credit Agreement) denominated in U.S. dollars, the applicable base rate plus a total leverage-based margin of 100 to 200 basis points, (iii) for LIBOR Loans (as defined in the MGE Niagara Credit Agreement) denominated in U.S. dollars, the applicable LIBOR rate (subject to a 0.00% floor) plus a total leverage-based margin of 250 to 350 basis points and (iv) for Bankers’ Acceptances (as defined in the MGE Niagara Credit Agreement) denominated in Canadian dollars, based on a Discount Rate (as defined in the MGE Niagara Credit Agreement) (subject to a 0.00% floor) and a total leverage-based margin of 250 to 350 basis points. MGE Niagara is also required to pay a total leverage-based undrawn commitment fee on the MGE Niagara Revolving Facility of between 50 and 70 basis points.
As of June 30, 2019, outstanding borrowings under the MGE Niagara Term Loan Facility accrued interest at 4.71%. As of June 30, 2019, the commitment fee under MGE Niagara Revolving Facility was 55 basis points.
The MGE Niagara Credit Facilities are secured by, among other things, substantially all of the properties and assets of MGE Niagara, subject to certain customary exceptions, as well as by a pledge of (i) all of the issued and outstanding shares of MGE Niagara and (ii) a convertible debenture held by a third-party investor.
The MGE Niagara Credit Agreement contains customary covenants applicable to MGE Niagara, including covenants governing: incurrence of indebtedness, incurrence of liens, payment of dividends and other distributions, asset sales, acquisitions and investments, affiliate transactions and fundamental changes. The MGE Niagara Credit Agreement also includes financial maintenance covenants pertaining to total leverage and fixed charge coverage. In addition, the MGE Niagara Credit Agreement contains customary events of default relating to, among other things, failure to make payments, breach of covenants and breach of representations.
On July 17, 2019, MGE Niagara entered into an amendment to the MGE Niagara Credit Facilities to increase the borrowing capacity under the MGE Niagara Revolving Facility by 10.0 million Canadian dollars ($7.6 million as of June 30, 2019).
MGE Niagara Convertible Debenture
On June 11, 2019, MGE Niagara issued a convertible debenture (the “MGE Niagara Convertible Debenture”) to a third-party investor (the "Convertible Debenture Holder") in an aggregate principal amount of 40.0 million Canadian dollars ($30.5 million as of June 30, 2019). The MGE Niagara Convertible Debenture is convertible, at the option of the Convertible Debenture Holder, between the fourth and sixth anniversaries of the Closing Date, into Class B Special shares representing 40% of the capital of MGE Niagara. The Class B Special shares will be similar in nature to the existing Common shares. The MGE Niagara Convertible Debenture accrues interest at an annual rate of 3.5% prior to the sixth anniversary of the Closing Date and 8.0% thereafter, compounded annually. The first interest payment is payable on June 11, 2022, with annual payments due thereafter. Repayment of the outstanding principal, plus any accrued interest, is due thirty days following the expiration or the termination of the COSA. If the MGE Niagara Convertible Debenture is not converted as of the sixth anniversary of the Closing Date, either MGE Niagara or the Convertible Debenture Holder may elect early repayment of half of the principal outstanding as of such date.
Guaranteed Credit Facility - Second Advance
On October 30, 2018, the Company entered into a follow-on loan agreement with certain third-party lenders providing for an $11.3 million term loan under the Indian Loan Guaranty, Insurance and Interest Subsidy Program (the “BIA Loan Guaranty Program”). This term loan, combined with an initial term loan issued under the BIA Loan Guaranty Program in September 2018, completes the allocation to the Company of $35.0 million in guaranteed term loans under the BIA Loan Guaranty Program. Like the initial facility, this term loan is secured by a 90% loan guarantee by the Department of the Interior, Assistant Secretary—Indian Affairs, Division of Capital Investment, and is otherwise identical to the initial facility, including use of proceeds, maturity, amortization, interest rate and covenant requirements.

Senior Secured Credit Facilities - Non-cash Transactions
On June 30, 2019 and 2018, the bank that administers the Company's debt service payments for its Senior Secured Credit Facilities made required principal payments on behalf of the Company totaling $13.3 million and $18.9 million, respectively, but did not accordingly debit the Company's bank account for these payments. As of June 30, 2019 and 2018, the Company reflected these non-cash transactions as reductions to current portion of long-term debt and corresponding increases to other current liabilities. On the respective following banking days, the bank withdrew the payments from the Company's bank account, resulting in reductions to the Company's cash and cash equivalents and other current liabilities.
Debt Covenant Compliance
As of June 30, 2019, the Company was in compliance with all financial covenants.

Overview
The Mohegan Tribe and the Company
The Mohegan Tribe of Indians of Connecticut, or the Mohegan Tribe, is a federally-recognized Indian tribe with an approximately 595-acre reservation situated in southeastern Connecticut, adjacent to Uncasville, Connecticut. Under the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act of 1988, federally-recognized Indian tribes are permitted to conduct full-scale casino gaming operations on tribal lands, subject to, among other things, the negotiation of a compact with the affected state. The Mohegan Tribe and the State of Connecticut entered into such a compact, the Mohegan Compact, which was approved by the United States Secretary of the Interior. We were established as an instrumentality of the Mohegan Tribe, with the exclusive authority to conduct and regulate gaming activities for the Mohegan Tribe on tribal lands and the non-exclusive authority to conduct such activities elsewhere.
Our gaming operation at Mohegan Sun is one of only two gaming operations in Connecticut offering slot machines and table games. Through our subsidiary, Downs Racing, L.P., we also own and operate Mohegan Sun Pocono, a gaming and entertainment facility located in Plains Township, Pennsylvania.
We are governed by a nine-member Management Board, whose members also comprise the Mohegan Tribal Council, the governing body of the Mohegan Tribe. Any change in the composition of the Mohegan Tribal Council results in a corresponding change in our Management Board.
Acquisition of the Niagara Gaming Bundle
In September 2018, MGE Niagara Entertainment Inc., or MGE Niagara, our indirect wholly-owned subsidiary, was selected by the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation, or the OLG, to be the service provider for the Fallsview Casino Resort, Casino Niagara and the future 5,000-seat Niagara Falls Entertainment Centre, all in Niagara Falls, Canada, which we refer to collectively as the Niagara Gaming Bundle. Following its selection, MGE Niagara entered into a Transition and Asset Purchase Agreement with the OLG and the Ontario Gaming Assets Corporation. Pursuant to the terms of this agreement, MGE Niagara agreed to acquire certain assets associated with the Niagara Gaming Bundle and to perform certain transition activities in order to facilitate the transition of the operational responsibilities from the previous operator to MGE Niagara. On June 11, 2019, MGE Niagara completed the acquisition of the Niagara Gaming Bundle and assumed the day-to-day operations of the properties under the terms of a 21-year Casino Operating and Services Agreement, or the COSA, with the OLG.
Market and Competition from Other Gaming Operations
Our gaming operation at Mohegan Sun is one of two gaming facilities in Connecticut. We also face competition from gaming facilities in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York and New Jersey. In addition, we face competition in and from the northeastern Pennsylvania and Ontario gaming markets. Please refer to “Part I. Item 1. Business-Market and Competition from Other Gaming Operations” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2018 and our other reports and filings with the SEC for further details regarding current and potential competition from other gaming operations.
