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 third quarter of 2022.

Total operating revenues for the third quarter of 2022 were US$241.8 million, representing a decrease of approximately 46% from US$446.4 million for the comparable period in 2021. The decrease in total operating revenues was primarily attributable to the government mandated temporary closure of our casinos in Macau in July and heightened travel restrictions in Macau and mainland China related to COVID-19 during the quarter which led to softer performance in the rolling chip and mass market table games segments.

Melco generated negative Adjusted Property EBITDA(1) of US$34.9 million in the third quarter of 2022, compared with Adjusted Property EBITDA of US$ 31.9 million in the third quarter of 2021.

Operating loss for the third quarter of 2022 was US$198.5 million, compared with operating loss of US$182.2 million in the third quarter of 2021.

Net loss attributable to Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited for the third quarter of 2022 was US$243.8 million, or US$0.53 per ADS, compared with net loss attributable to Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited of US$233.2 million, or US$0.49 per ADS, in the third quarter of 2021. The net loss attributable to noncontrolling interests was US$42.8 million and US$35.3 million during the third 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, “Our results for the third quarter of 2022 were impacted by the casino closures in July and the travel restrictions imposed across mainland China and Macau. In July, the Macau government implemented preventative measures against the pandemic and our casinos were closed for 12 days. Following the re-opening, the operating environment remained challenging given the continuing tight travel restrictions, but we are encouraged by the recent re-opening of Macau to international tourists from designated countries as well as the increase in visitation over the October Golden Week. We are also cautiously optimistic that the granting of e-visas and group visas, which commenced on November 1, 2022, will lead to a gradual increase in visitation.

“We submitted our proposal to the public tender for the award of new gaming concessions on September 14, 2022 and it has been a smooth and transparent process. We fully support the Macau government’s initiatives to further develop Macau as Asia’s premier destination for international tourism. Our integrated resorts offer a wide range of unique non-gaming amenities, and we plan to leverage our experience to provide additional tourist attractions in Macau. Our proposal reinforces our commitment to Macau, and we look forward to playing a leadership role in partnering with the Macau government to execute on its vision.

“In the Philippines, gaming volumes continue to track towards pre-pandemic levels. We expect to see further growth as travel restrictions around Asia continue to be lifted and travel returns to more normal levels. Gaming volumes in Cyprus exceeded pre-pandemic levels driven by further easing of COVID-19 related restrictions in the third quarter.

“In respect to our development projects, the construction of Studio City Phase 2 is progressing on schedule. We will monitor the market closely to determine the appropriate time to open and currently anticipate the opening to be conducted in stages beginning in the second quarter of 2023. In Cyprus, as we have previously announced, the City of Dreams Mediterranean project is expected to open in the second quarter of 2023, subject to regulatory approvals.

“I am pleased to report that we are making appreciable progress to reach our 2030 goals in environmental sustainability. The energy-efficiency measures that have been progressively adopted at our properties in Macau and Manila since 2018 have resulted in annualized savings of over 46.8 million kWh, equivalent to energy savings in over 4,000 homes. We continue to strive to reduce single-use plastic in our operations with the NORDAQ water filtration and bottling system which is now operational in all of our properties in Macau and Manila. In addition, we are undergoing an extensive plastic inventory exercise to report and continue to implement plans to reduce problematic plastic usage.”

Studio City generated negative Adjusted EBITDA of US$31.5 million in the third quarter of 2022, compared with negative Adjusted EBITDA of US$14.0 million in the third quarter of 2021.

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 fourth quarter of 2022.

On August 2, 2022, the validity of nucleic acid tests to enter Macau was set at 48 hours for entry from Zhuhai and reduced to 24 hours from October 30, 2022. Since September 1, 2022, tourists became eligible to enter Macau without prior approval provided they held passports issued by the 41 countries specified by the Macau government or comply with certain conditions imposed by the Macau government, subject to valid nucleic acid tests, 7-day quarantine at a government designated facility and a 3-day self-monitoring period. On November 1, 2022, China’s National Immigration Administration commenced electronic processing of visa applications for individual or group travel to Macau.

As of May 30, 2022, restrictions for inbound travelers into the Philippines were eased and negative RT-PCR test results no longer required for people fully vaccinated. In addition, as of October 28, 2022, the mandatory wearing of masks in the Philippines has been limited to healthcare facilities, medical transport vehicles and public transport. In Cyprus, as of June 1, 2022, passengers travelling to Cyprus were no longer required to present any sort of vaccination or recovery certificates, nor a negative COVID-19 test result. Furthermore, masks were no longer mandatory other than in healthcare facilities, pharmacies and public transport. Although travel restrictions have eased in the Philippines and Cyprus, the respective governments continue to closely monitor the status.

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 performance for the year.

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.
