Wynn Resorts Q3 Revenue Soars by 87.9%

Listen to this news articleLISTEN TO THIS ARTICLE:

Wynn Resorts announced an impressive 87.9% increase in its revenue to $1.67 billion in the third quarter primarily due to strong performances at its Macau venues, Wynn Palace and Wynn Macau, following the easing of Covid-related restrictions in the region.

Wynn Optimistic about UAE Project

The company also places strong emphasis on future growth prospects, notably in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). It is actively progressing with the construction of the Wynn Al Marjan Island in the Emirate of Ras Al-Khaimah, a project estimated to cost around $3.90 billion.

CEO Craig Billings expressed his enthusiasm about the UAE market, considering it a paramount new market opportunity in recent decades.

We believe it’s highly unlikely that every Emirate will ultimately avail themselves of the right to host an integrated resort. Our view is that it will likely be us and us alone for a multi-year period given that we are well underway on construction now. We all know the advantages of being first as we have seen in other markets. After that, it may be a duopoly or an oligopoly of three. But I find either ultimate market structure undaunting given the database advantages of being first and the fact that we’ve very successfully operate in the two most competitive markets in the world. Vegas and Macau. As I’ve said before, this is the most exciting new market opening in decades.
