The Company plans to use the net proceeds from the offering for general corporate purposes, including repaying certain indebtedness maturing in 2015 and funding a portion of the development costs related to its Maryland and Massachusetts resort projects. Pending such use, the Company may invest the net proceeds in short-term interest-bearing accounts, securities or similar investments.
