Listen to this news articleLISTEN TO THIS ARTICLE:

Melco Resorts & Entertainment has published its Q3 financial report for 2023, reporting total operating revenues of $1.02bn, a remarkable 321% increase compared to the $241.8m recorded in the same period last year.

The operator attributes the substantial revenue growth to the relaxation of pandemic restrictions in Macau earlier this year, which led to enhanced performance across gaming and non-gaming operations.

Good Results despite Hurdles

Melco Resorts & Entertainment, like its counterparts in the region, faced several restrictions in 2022, which adversely affected its revenue.

Income and adjusted EBITDA also improved year-on-year. The company recorded $94.7m for its operating income for Q3 2023, a substantial improvement from the operating loss of $198.5m in the third quarter of 2022.

Additionally, its Adjusted Property EBITDA stood at $280.6m, compared to the negative Adjusted Property EBITDA of $34.9m reported in Q3 2022.

Net loss for the fiscal period was $16.3m, compared to the $243.8m loss in 2022. It was also better compared to the $23.4m loss accrued in Q2 2023.

Macau's recovery continued to grow from strength to strength into the third quarter of 2023, especially during the summer months, with our property visitation and casino player hours benefiting from this growth.
