MACAU, July 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Studio City International Holdings Limited (NYSE: MSC) (“Studio City” or the “Company”), a world-class integrated resort located in Cotai, Macau, today reported its unaudited financial results for the second quarter of 2021.

Total operating revenues for the second quarter of 2021 were US$31.2 million, compared to total operating revenues of negative US$12.5 million in the second quarter of 2020. The change was due to the increase in revenues from the provision of gaming related services and higher non-gaming revenues as a result of a year-over-year increase in inbound tourism in the second quarter of 2021.

Revenues from the provision of gaming related services are derived from the provision of facilities for the operations of Studio City Casino by Melco Resorts (Macau) Limited (the “Gaming Operator”), a subsidiary of Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited (“Melco”) and holder of a gaming subconcession, and services related thereto.

Studio City Casino generated gross gaming revenues of US$106.1 million and US$6.7 million for the second quarters of 2021 and 2020, respectively.

Studio City’s rolling chip volume was US$386.1 million in the second quarter of 2021 versus US$232.1 million in the second quarter of 2020. The rolling chip win rate was 4.01% in the second quarter of 2021 versus 0.17% in the second quarter of 2020. The expected rolling chip win rate range is 2.85% - 3.15%.

Mass market table games drop increased to US$319.7 million in the second quarter of 2021, compared with US$20.1 million in the second quarter of 2020. The mass market table games hold percentage was 25.8% in the second quarter of 2021, compared to 22.2% in the second quarter of 2020.

Gaming machine handle for the second quarter of 2021 was US$299.4 million, compared with US$67.6 million in the second quarter of 2020. The gaming machine win rate was 2.7% in both the second quarters of 2021 and 2020.

Total gaming taxes and the costs incurred in connection with the on-going operation of Studio City Casino deducted from gross gaming revenues were US$104.3 million and US$34.7 million in the second quarters of 2021 and 2020, respectively.

Revenues from the provision of gaming related services were US$1.8 million for the second quarter of 2021, compared with revenues from the provision of gaming related services of negative US$28.0 million for the second quarter of 2020. Revenues from the provision of gaming related services are net of gaming taxes and the costs incurred in connection with the operation of Studio City Casino deducted by the Gaming Operator pursuant to the Services and Right to Use Arrangements.

Total non-gaming revenues at Studio City for the second quarter of 2021 were US$29.4 million, compared with US$15.4 million for the second quarter of 2020.

Operating loss for the second quarter of 2021 was US$45.8 million, compared with operating loss of US$92.7 million in the second quarter of 2020.

Studio City generated negative Adjusted EBITDA(1) of US$9.5 million in the second quarter of 2021, compared to negative Adjusted EBITDA of US$51.1 million in the second quarter of 2020. The change was mainly attributable to the increase in revenues from the provision of gaming related services and higher non-gaming revenues.

Net loss attributable to Studio City International Holdings Limited for the second quarter of 2021 was US$59.7 million, compared with net loss attributable to Studio City International Holdings Limited of US$91.0 million in the second quarter of 2020. The net loss attributable to participation interest was US$11.7 million and US$27.3 million in the second quarters of 2021 and 2020, respectively.

Other Factors Affecting Earnings

Total net non-operating expenses for the second quarter of 2021 were US$25.1 million, which mainly included interest expenses of US$22.3 million, net of amounts capitalized.

Depreciation and amortization costs of US$31.9 million were recorded in the second quarter of 2021, of which US$0.8 million was related to the amortization expense for the land use right.

The negative Adjusted EBITDA for Studio City for the three months ended June 30, 2021 referred to in Melco’s earnings release dated July 27, 2021 (“Melco’s earnings release”) is US$8.3 million less than the negative Adjusted EBITDA of Studio City contained in this press release. The Adjusted EBITDA of Studio City contained in this press release includes certain intercompany charges that are not included in the Adjusted EBITDA for Studio City contained in Melco’s earnings release. Such intercompany charges include, among other items, fees and shared service charges billed between the Company and its subsidiaries and certain subsidiaries of Melco. Additionally, Adjusted EBITDA of Studio City included in Melco’s earnings release does not reflect certain intercompany costs related to the table games operations at Studio City Casino.

Financial Position and Capital Expenditures

Total cash and bank balances as of June 30, 2021 aggregated to US$821.7 million (December 31, 2020: US$575.4 million), including US$278.7 million of bank deposits with original maturities over three months (December 31, 2020: US$nil) and US$0.1million of restricted cash (December 31, 2020: US$0.1 million). Total debt, net of unamortized deferred financing costs at the end of the second quarter of 2021, was US$2.09 billion (December 31, 2020: US$1.58 billion).

Capital expenditures for the second quarter of 2021 were US$95.0 million.

Recent Developments

The COVID-19 outbreak continues to have a material effect on our operations, financial position, and prospects during the third quarter of 2021.

Our operations in Macau continue to be impacted by travel bans, restrictions, and quarantine requirements imposed by the governments in Macau, Hong Kong and China, despite the nationwide resumption of issuance of Individual Visit Scheme visas by China in September 2020. Such bans, restrictions and requirements have been, and may continue to be, modified by the relevant authorities from time to time as COVID-19 developments unfold. Additionally, health-related precautionary measures remain in place at our properties in Macau, which could continue to impact visitation and customer spending. We have experienced improvements in our business in Macau during the second quarter, especially due to strong visitation during the May Golden Week holidays. Notwithstanding the resurgence of COVID-19 cases in the Guangdong province in June, which led to tightened travel restrictions for Chinese visitors, visitation has normalized in July month to date.

Construction at Studio City Phase 2 has been impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. The Macau government has granted an extension of the development period from May 31, 2022 to December 27, 2022, and we currently expect to complete construction within this period.

The pace of recovery from COVID-19 related disruptions continues to depend on various future events, such as the successful production, distribution and widespread acceptance of safe and effective vaccines, the development of effective treatments for COVID-19, including for new strains of COVID-19, the duration of travel and visa restrictions as well as customer sentiment and behavior, together with the length of time before customers resume traveling and participating in entertainment and leisure activities at high-density venues and the impact of potential higher unemployment rates, declines in income levels and loss of personal wealth resulting from the COVID-19 outbreak on consumer behavior related to discretionary spending and traveling, all of which remain highly uncertain.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

(1)

"Adjusted EBITDA" is defined as net income/loss before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, pre-opening costs, property charges and other and other non-operating income and expenses. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results. This non-GAAP financial measure eliminates the impact of items that we do not consider indicative of the performance of our business. While we believe that this non-GAAP financial measure is useful in evaluating our business, this information should be considered as supplemental in nature and is not meant as a substitute for the related financial information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. It should not be considered in isolation or construed as an alternative to net income/loss, cash flow or any other measure of financial performance or as an indicator of our operating performance, liquidity, profitability or cash flows generated by operating, investing or financing activities. The use of Adjusted EBITDA has material limitations as an analytical tool, as Adjusted EBITDA does not include all items that impact our net income/loss. In addition, the Company’s calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may be different from the calculation methods used by other companies and, therefore, comparability may be limited. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of the historical non-GAAP financial measure to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Reconciliations of Adjusted 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, property charges and other and loss on extinguishment of debt, net of participation interest. Adjusted net income/loss is presented as supplemental disclosure because management believes it provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our performance, in addition to income/loss computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Adjusted net income/loss 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 Studio City International Holdings 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.
