MACAU, Nov. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited (Nasdaq:MLCO) (“Melco” or the “Company”), a developer, owner and operator of casino gaming and entertainment casino resort facilities in Asia, today reported its unaudited financial results for the third quarter of 2018.

Net revenue for the third quarter of 2018 was US$1,220.3 million, representing a decrease of approximately 11% from US$1,376.8 million for the comparable period in 2017. The decrease in net revenue was primarily attributable to higher commissions reported as a reduction in revenue upon the Company’s adoption of a new revenue recognition standard issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (the “New Revenue Standard”) and lower group-wide rolling chip gross gaming revenues, partially offset by higher group-wide mass market table games and gaming machines gross gaming revenues. The Company adopted the New Revenue Standard using the modified retrospective method from January 1, 2018. Results for the periods beginning on or after January 1, 2018 are presented under the New Revenue Standard, while prior year amounts are not adjusted and continue to be reported in accordance with the previous basis. Under the previous basis, before the adoption of the New Revenue Standard, net revenue for the third quarter of 2018 would have been US$1,311.6 million, which would have represented a decrease of approximately 5% from the US$1,376.8 million for the comparable period in 2017.

Operating income for the third quarter of 2018 was US$83.6 million, compared with operating income of US$192.7 million in the third quarter of 2017, representing a decrease of 57%.

Adjusted property EBITDA(1) was US$295.4 million for the third quarter of 2018, as compared to Adjusted property EBITDA of US$400.2 million in the third quarter of 2017, representing a decrease of 26%. The decline in Adjusted property EBITDA was mainly attributable to poorer performance in the group-wide rolling chip segment and a one-time special gift granted to non-management employees.

Net income attributable to Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited for the third quarter of 2018 was US$9.6 million, or US$0.02 per ADS, compared with US$115.9 million, or US$0.24 per ADS, in the third quarter of 2017. The net loss attributable to noncontrolling interests during the third quarter of 2018 and 2017 were US$2.4 million and US$3.3 million, respectively, which were related to Studio City and City of Dreams Manila.

Mr. Lawrence Ho, our Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “I am incredibly thrilled that just two months after the grand opening, Morpheus at City of Dreams made the list of TIME magazine’s ‘World’s Greatest Places 2018,’ being the only Macau entry on the list.”

“Designed by the late Pritzker Prize-winning architect Dame Zaha Hadid, Morpheus has been described as “The Icon of the New Macau” and is the first hotel brand to be wholly developed and created by Melco. It sets a new benchmark for ultra-luxury hospitality in Macau, and features a spectacular collection of “world’s first” including the world’s first free-form exoskeleton high-rise architectural structure, the first spa concept in the world to feature a Snow Garden with real snow and the world’s first hotel to feature an entire floor dedicated to legendary chef Alain Ducasse, with two Ducasse restaurants and a bar.”

“The opening of Morpheus only marks the beginning of the relaunch of City of Dreams. On top of that, we are upgrading our VIP gaming spaces that are expected to open over the next six months. We will also commence the rolling refurbishment of the Nüwa after Chinese New Year 2019 and the redevelopment of the Count:Down in the second half of 2019 into a new, luxurious, ultra-cool hotel – Libertine.”

“At Studio City, we are embarking on a series of property upgrades to refine the entertainment offerings, which include the world’s most electrifying stunt show – Elekron, Asia’s largest Virtual Reality zone and a fantastic new street of food and beverage.”

“In the Philippines, City of Dreams Manila delivered another solid quarter underpinned by robust mass gaming revenue growth.”

“The Board has, after evaluating the Company’s current liquidity position and future expected capital needs, decided to declare another quarterly dividend of US$0.14505 per ADS. In addition, the Board has also approved a new US$500 million share repurchase program, which is effective immediately. Year to date, the Company has also repurchased approximately 23 million ADSs, worth approximately US$490 million, under the US$500 million share repurchase program the Company announced in March 2018.”

“Lastly, Japan continues to be a core focus for us. We expect development of the next generation of integrated resorts to soon commence in this incredibly exciting, yet currently underpenetrated, tourism destination. With our focus on the Asian premium segment, high quality assets, dedication to world-class entertainment offerings, market-leading social safeguards and compliance culture, and our commitment to being an ideal partner to local governments and communities alike, we believe Melco is in a strong position to help Japan realize the vision for integrated resort development with a unique Japanese touch.”

Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited (the “Company”) may also make written or oral forward-looking statements in its periodic reports to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), in its annual report to shareholders, in press releases and other written materials and in oral statements made by its officers, directors or employees to third parties. Statements that are not historical facts, including statements about the Company’s beliefs and expectations, are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties, and a number of factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement.

In some cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by words or phrases such as “may”, “will”, “expect”, “anticipate”, “target”, “aim”, “estimate”, “intend”, “plan”, “believe”, “potential”, “continue”, “is/are likely to” or other similar expressions.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

1. “Adjusted EBITDA” is earnings 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 earnings 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 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, 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, net income, 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” is net income before pre-opening costs, development costs, property charges and other, loss on extinguishment of debt and costs associated with debt modification, net of noncontrolling interests and taxes calculated using specific tax treatments applicable to the adjustments based on their respective jurisdictions. Adjusted net income attributable to Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited and adjusted net income 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 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 attributable to Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited and adjusted net income 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 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.
