Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited (Nasdaq: MLCO) (“Melco” or the “Company”), a developer, owner, and operator of integrated resort facilities in Asia and Europe, today reported its unaudited financial results for the second quarter of 2022.

Total operating revenues for the second quarter of 2022 were US$296.1 million, representing a decrease of approximately 48% from US$566.4 million for the comparable period in 2021. The decrease in total operating revenues was primarily attributable to heightened border restrictions in Macau and mainland China related to COVID-19, which led to softer performance in the rolling chip and mass market table games segments.

Operating loss for the second quarter of 2022 was US$209.2 million, compared with operating loss of US$128.1 million in the second quarter of 2021.

Melco generated negative Adjusted Property EBITDA(1) of US$13.8 million in the second quarter of 2022, compared with Adjusted Property EBITDA of US$79.1 million in the second quarter of 2021.

Net loss attributable to Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited for the second quarter of 2022 was US$251.5 million, or US$0.53 per ADS, compared with net loss attributable to Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited of US$185.7 million, or US$0.39 per ADS, in the second quarter of 2021. The net loss attributable to noncontrolling interests was US$43.2 million and US$34.8 million during the second quarters of 2022 and 2021, respectively, all of which were related to Studio City, City of Dreams Manila, and the Cyprus Operations.

Mr. Lawrence Ho, our Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “It goes without saying that our results for the second quarter of 2022 were heavily impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and the restrictions imposed across mainland China and Macau. Throughout the pandemic, ensuring the health and safety of our Colleagues has been very important, and these continued to be our highest priority through the recent outbreak in Macau.

“We very much appreciate the Macau government’s expeditious handling and publication of the amendments to the gaming law in June, and the publication of the regulations for the new concession tender. The amended gaming law and the tender regulations provide clear direction for the remainder of the year and set a foundation for a smooth transition to the new concessions. We are committed to Macau, and aligned with the Macau government’s vision to further develop Macau and diversify its economy.

“In contrast to the challenges we have been facing in Macau, our businesses in the Philippines and Cyprus have been improving with volumes gradually recovering toward pre-COVID levels. City of Dreams Manila has been operating at 100% capacity since March 1, 2022 and saw a fairly quick recovery in domestic business. International visitation continues to ramp up, and we expect to see further growth as more of the travel restrictions around Asia are lifted and travel returns to normal. Cyprus also saw a pick-up in volumes and profitability with a relaxation in COVID-19 related restrictions.

“The construction of Studio City Phase 2 is progressing well. We will be monitoring the markets closely to determine the appropriate time to open and currently anticipate phasing the opening beginning in the second quarter of 2023. In Cyprus, the City of Dreams Mediterranean project has experienced delays due to some difficulties that we have encountered with our contractors. At this point in time, we expect to open in early second quarter 2023, subject to regulatory approvals. However, this remains a fluid situation and we continue to look at ways to expedite the progress.

“Lastly, we remain steadfast in our efforts in environmental sustainability with a focus on energy and waste reduction. Melco’s 2021 Sustainability Report has been released, with new ambitious environmental Group targets included to align with our overarching 2030 goals. We are undergoing climate risk assessments under the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) guidelines to identify climate-related financial risks and opportunities, and have been actively working to gain a deeper understanding of these emissions and continue to refine our calculation methodology.”

Recent Developments

Uncertainty around COVID-19 outbreaks and related restrictions continue to have a material effect on our operations, financial position, and future prospects into the third quarter of 2022.

In Macau, our operations remain significantly impacted by travel restrictions and quarantine requirements. On June 23, 2022, the Macau government issued a closure order for entertainment venues which did not include casinos. Effective from July 11, 2022, the Macau government issued a further order whereby from July 11 until July 18, 2022 all entities performing industrial and commercial activities, including gaming activities, were required to suspend operation, except for those in categories of activity deemed essential to the community and to the day-to-day lives of the members of the public. These restrictions were further extended until July 23, 2022 and our casinos were closed for a total of 12 days. From July 23, 2022, we were able to resume our operations, subject to strict health and pandemic prevention requirements. From August 2, 2022, all restrictions were lifted, subject to certain guidelines set by Macau’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention. The validity of nucleic acid tests to enter Macau vary from time to time and is currently set at 48 hours for entry from Zhuhai, and non-Macau resident individuals who are not residents of Taiwan, Hong Kong, or the PRC continue to be unable to enter Macau, except if they are eligible and have been approved for an exemption.

As of May 30, 2022, restrictions for inbound travelers into the Philippines have been eased and negative RT-PCR test results are no longer required for those people that are fully vaccinated. Furthermore, in Cyprus, as of June 1, 2022, passengers travelling to Cyprus are not required to present any sort of vaccination or recovery certificate, nor a negative COVID-19 test result. Although travel restrictions have eased in the Philippines and Cyprus, COVID-19 cases have been increasing in recent weeks, and the respective governments are closely observing the situation.

Uncertainty around COVID-19 outbreaks is expected to continue for at least the remainder of 2022 with travel bans or restrictions, visa restrictions and quarantine requirements being key factors impacting 2022 performance.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

(1) “Adjusted EBITDA” is net income/loss before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, pre-opening costs, development costs, property charges and other, share-based compensation, payments to the Philippine parties under the cooperative arrangement (the “Philippine Parties”), land rent to Belle Corporation and other non-operating income and expenses. “Adjusted Property EBITDA” is net income/loss before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, pre-opening costs, development costs, property charges and other, share-based compensation, payments to the Philippine Parties, land rent to Belle Corporation, Corporate and Other expenses and other non-operating income and expenses. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Property EBITDA are presented exclusively as supplemental disclosures because management believes they are widely used to measure the performance, and as a basis for valuation, of gaming companies. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Property EBITDA as measures of the operating performance of its segments and to compare the operating performance of its properties with those of its competitors.The Company also presents Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Property EBITDA because they are used by some investors as ways to measure a company’s ability to incur and service debt, make capital expenditures, and meet working capital requirements. Gaming companies have historically reported Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Property EBITDA as supplements to financial measures in accordance with U.S. GAAP. However, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Property EBITDA should not be considered as alternatives to operating income/loss as indicators of the Company’s performance, as alternatives to cash flows from operating activities as measures of liquidity, or as alternatives to any other measure determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Unlike net income/loss, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Property EBITDA do not include depreciation and amortization or interest expense and, therefore, do not reflect current or future capital expenditures or the cost of capital. The Company compensates for these limitations by using Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Property EBITDA as only two of several comparative tools, together with U.S. GAAP measurements, to assist in the evaluation of operating performance.

Such U.S. GAAP measurements include operating income/loss, net income/loss, cash flows from operations and cash flow data. The Company has significant uses of cash flows, including capital expenditures, interest payments, debt principal repayments, taxes and other recurring and nonrecurring charges, which are not reflected in Adjusted EBITDA or Adjusted Property EBITDA. Also, the Company’s calculation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Property EBITDA may be different from the calculation methods used by other companies and, therefore, comparability may be limited. Reconciliations of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Property EBITDA with the most comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP are provided herein immediately following the financial statements included in this press release.

(2) “Adjusted net income/loss” is net income/loss before pre-opening costs, development costs, property charges and other and loss on extinguishment of debt, net of noncontrolling interests and taxes calculated using specific tax treatments applicable to the adjustments based on their respective jurisdictions. Adjusted net income/loss attributable to Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited and adjusted net income/loss attributable to Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited per share (“EPS”) are presented as supplemental disclosures because management believes they are widely used to measure the performance, and as a basis for valuation, of gaming companies. These measures are used by management and/or evaluated by some investors, in addition to income/loss and EPS computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP, as an additional basis for assessing period-to-period results of our business. Adjusted net income/loss attributable to Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited and adjusted net income/loss attributable to Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited per share may be different from the calculation methods used by other companies and, therefore, comparability may be limited. Reconciliations of adjusted net income/loss attributable to Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited with the most comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP are provided herein immediately following the financial statements included in this press release.
