Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets, Financial State


Item 2.01. Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

Explanatory Note
This Amendment No. 1 on Form 8-K/A (the "Form 8-K/A") amends and supplements the Current Report on Form 8-K of Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc. (the "Company") filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on August 15, 2013 (the "Initial Form 8-K"). The Initial Form 8-K reported under Item 2.01 that the Company had completed the acquisition (the "Acquisition") of Ameristar Casinos, Inc. ("Ameristar") on August 13, 2013.
The Acquisition was completed pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger (as amended, the "Merger Agreement") entered into on December 20, 2012, by and among the Company, PNK Holdings, Inc., PNK Development 32, Inc., and Ameristar. This Form 8-K/A provides the financial statements and unaudited pro forma financial information as required by Item 9.01 of Form 8-K.
No other modification to the Initial Form 8-K is being made by this Form 8-K/A. The information previously reported in or filed with the Initial Form 8-K is hereby incorporated by reference into this Form 8-K/A.

Forward-Looking Statements
All of the pro forma financial and other information and other statements included in Item 9.01 of this Form 8-K/A, other than historical information or statements of historical fact, are "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and
Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. These forward-looking statements are based on the Company's current expectations and are subject to uncertainty and changes in circumstances. These forward-looking statements include, among others, all of the pro forma financial information, the notes related thereto, and the statements regarding the Company's expectations with respect to the Acquisition and related transactions. There are a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements made herein. These risks and uncertainties include the Company's ability to integrate the operations of Ameristar following the Acquisition and to achieve the anticipated enhanced economies of scale, synergy potential, cost savings and other anticipated benefits of the Acquisition, and the risk factors disclosed in the Company's most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, which the Company filed with the SEC on March 1, 2013 and amended on May 31, 2013 and July 26, 2013, and in all reports on Forms 10-K, 10-Q and 8-K filed with the SEC by the Company subsequent to the filing of the Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012. Forward-looking statements reflect the Company's analysis as of the date of this Form 8-K/A and the Company does not undertake to revise these statements to reflect subsequent developments, except as required under the federal securities laws. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any of these forward-looking statements.
