33 Stockmans Casino generated revenue of $9.7 million and EBITDA of $3.0 million. Earnings from Harrington Raceway and Casino were up 11.8% as a result of our restructured management contract and timing of payments. SG&A costs decreased mostly due to a reduction in employee-related expenses such as stock compensation. Unrealized gains on Tribal receivables increased as projects saw changes in the discount rates and estimated opening dates – primarily due to the Michigan project being on schedule for a third quarter 2009 opening and a one-time payment of $9.3 million related to financing for the FireKeepers Casino in first quarter 2008.
34 Net income of approximately $1.6 million is up approximately $0.7 million from last years results. Net Income applicable to common shares was approximately $1.6 million or $0.08 per diluted share. Weighted average diluted shares for 2008 were 19,116,311, slightly below last years count of 19,304,251 due to advent of share repurchase program in July 2008. The board of directors approved a $2 million share repurchase plan in 2008. From the initial approval date in July to the programs expiration on April 30, 2009, the Company repurchased 1.4 million shares at a total cost of approximately $1.7 million (weighted-average cost of $1.22 per share). For 2008, the Company reduced its debt by $18.7 million, including the $9.5 million Green Acres obligation. The Company has only about $225k of debt repayment requirements in 2009 and no refinancing requirements. Cash at year-end stood at approximately $5.3 million. In addition, the Company prepaid its NSB Revolving Credit Facility by $8.9 million and as a result had availability under the facility of $6.0 million.
35 First quarter operating results were consistent with the prior year, exclusive of a one-time gain of approximately $1.4 million related to the $9.3 million repayment on the FDA receivable. Stockmans revenue performance in the first quarter was down 10%, reflecting weakness in the food and beverage segment due to economic weakness in the Northern Nevada market as well as increased food and beverage competition. Operating expenses for first quarter 2009 were down 7%, primarily due to improved cost-control measures affecting nearly all aspects of the Companys operations. Equity in net income from our Delaware operation was up 8% from 2008; the Company is guaranteed a minimum 5% management fee increase in 2009 over 2008s cash flow of $4.4 million.
36 Unrealized gain on tribal receivables in the first quarter of 2008 included a one-time benefit of approximately $1.4 million due to the repayment by the tribe of $9.3 million related to financing for the FireKeepers Casino completed in May 2008. Excluding this item, the gain is comparable year-over-year. The Company has a fair market valuation allowance of $0.7 million against the remaining $5.0 million receivable. EBITDA of $1.0 million was up from the prior-year amount of $0.9 million. Net income for the quarter was approximately $0.5 million and earnings per share were $0.03. Excluding the one-time gain on the tribal receivable of $1.4 million, EPS in 2008 would also have been $0.03. Cash as of March 31 st stood at approximately $3.9 million, with availability on the Companys revolving credit line with Nevada State Bank at approximately $7.9 million. The Company paid down $2.3 million of debt during the first quarter, reducing its current debt outstanding, including current maturities, to $4.3 million.
