Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On July 21, 2015, Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc. (“Pinnacle” or the “Company”) issued a press release and investor presentation related to the merger agreement entered into by and among Pinnacle, Gaming and Leisure Properties, Inc. (“GLPI”) and Gold Merger Sub, LLC. Copies of the press release and investor presentation are being furnished as Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K.

The information contained in the press release and investor presentation is summary information that is intended to be considered in the context of the Company’s Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) filings and other public announcements. Pinnacle undertakes no duty or obligation to publicly update or revise this information.

The Company’s press release and investor presentation, in addition to containing results that are determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”), contains certain “non-GAAP financial measures” as that term is defined by the rules and regulations of the SEC. The non-GAAP financial measures used in the press release and investor presentation should not be considered in isolation of, as a substitute for, or superior to, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures as defined in the press release and investor presentation may differ from similarly titled measures presented by other companies. The non-GAAP financial measures, as well as other information in the press release and investor presentation, should be read in conjunction with the Company’s financial statements filed with the SEC.

Additionally, the press release and investor presentation contain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements are based upon management’s current expectations, assumptions and estimates and are not guarantees of future results or performance. Actual results may differ materially from those contemplated in these statements due to a variety of risks and uncertainties and other factors, as discussed further in the press release and investor presentation.
