Ameristar launches online supplier registration

24 January 2007

LAS VEGAS, Nevada – (PRESS RELEASE) -- Ameristar Casinos, Inc., (Nasdaq: ASCA) today launched a new automated supplier registration process through the company's website at ameristar.com. The new online procedure will streamline bidding and contracting with vendors and service-providers for a wide variety of products and services. In the future, Ameristar will utilize the website's supplier database to generate additional bid opportunities for all suppliers that register.

The company especially encourages minority- and women-owned businesses at the local, regional and national level to register through the website. As part of Ameristar's ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion throughout our business, we are hopeful that the new automated registration process will facilitate increased participation by minority- and women-owned businesses in our bidding and contracting.

"Ameristar is committed to procuring goods and services from suppliers who can deliver the high-quality products that reflect our brand standards and provide the same level of outstanding service to us that we provide to our guests," said CEO and President John Boushy. "We constantly strive to provide the leading casino and entertainment facility in each of our markets. Our suppliers and service-providers play an integral role in helping us meet that goal."

"Ameristar also values inclusion in our procurement practices," continued Boushy. "We actively partner with women-owned and minority-owned businesses as providers of millions of dollars in goods and services each year. I'm optimistic that this new online registration process will allow us to create even more valuable partnerships with diverse vendors that share our company's commitment to quality and innovation."

At Ameristar, we are committed to celebrating and appreciating diversity and inclusion as an integral part of our business and a critical factor in our company's success. Our diversity efforts focus on hiring and leadership development, procurement for ongoing operations and construction activities, and charitable giving. A number of our executives serve in leadership positions of various diversity-related organizations, such as the American Gaming Association's Diversity Task Force and the MidAmerica Minority Business Development Council, and we participate in job fairs, vendor fairs and other programs to improve diversity and inclusion throughout our company and our industry. Our commitment to diversity is exemplified by programs such as our five-year, $1 million grant to the Kansas City Port Authority to fund a foundation for the advancement of women and minorities in business.
