P.M. BRIEFING : Caesars World's Earnings Drop

From Times wire services

Caesars World Inc. reported today its earnings fell to $10.38 million, or 42 cents a share, for the second quarter ended Jan. 31 from $15.74 million, or 65 cents a share, a year earlier.

Second-quarter revenues dropped to $213.85 million from $198 million in the same quarter the year before. The decreased earnings in the most recent quarter were attributed to lower contributions from Nevada operations and higher expenses.
