 Studio City International Holdings Limited Announces Unaudited First Quarter 2019 Earnings
   Tuesday, May 07, 2019 8:03:00 AM ET

MACAU, May 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Studio City International Holdings Limited (NYSE: MSC) (“Studio City” or the “Company”), a world-class gaming, retail and entertainment resort located in Cotai, Macau, today reported its unaudited financial results for the first quarter of 2019.

Total operating revenues for the first quarter of 2019 were US$151.1 million, as compared to US$156.9 million in the first quarter of 2018. The decrease in total operating revenues was due to the decrease in revenues from the provision of gaming related services, partially offset by higher non-gaming revenues.

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$348.9 million and US$425.6 million for the first quarters of 2019 and 2018, respectively. Affected by the Macau market-wide VIP weakness, and by increasing competition in and around Cotai, Studio City’s rolling chip volume totaled US$2.7 billion for the first quarter of 2019 versus US$6.6 billion in the first quarter of 2018. The rolling chip win rate was 3.3% in the first quarter of 2019 versus 2.7% in the first quarter of 2018. The expected rolling chip win rate range is 2.7% - 3.0%. Mass market table games drop increased to US$851.4 million in the first quarter of 2019 compared with US$825.2 million in the first quarter of 2018. The mass market table games hold percentage was 28.4% in the first quarter of 2019 compared to 27.4% in the first quarter of 2018. Gaming machine handle for the first quarter of 2019 was US$560.6 million, compared with US$581.6 million in the first quarter of 2018. The gaming machine win rate was 3.3% in the first quarter of 2019 compared to 3.7% in the first quarter of 2018. Total gaming tax and the costs incurred in connection with the operation of Studio City Casino deducted from gross gaming revenues were US$258.5 million and US$327.2 million in the first quarters of 2019 and 2018, respectively.

After the Gaming Operator deducted gaming tax and the costs incurred in connection with its operations of Studio City Casino from the gross gaming revenues, the Company recognized revenues from provision of gaming related services of US$90.4 million and US$98.4 million for the first quarters of 2019 and 2018, respectively.

Total non-gaming revenues at Studio City for the first quarter of 2019 was US$60.7 million, compared with US$58.5 million for the first quarter of 2018.

Operating income for the first quarter of 2019 was US$38.5 million, compared with operating income of US$48.1 million in the first quarter of 2018, representing a decrease of 20%.

Adjusted EBITDA(1) was US$84.2 million for the first quarter of 2019, as compared to Adjusted EBITDA of US$93.0 million in the first quarter of 2018, representing a decrease of 9%. The year-on-year decrease in Adjusted EBITDA was mainly attributable to the decrease in revenues from the provision of gaming related services.

Net income attributable to Studio City International Holdings Limited for the first quarter of 2019 was US$2.9 million, compared with US$8.8 million in the first quarter of 2018. The net income attributable to participation interest for the first quarter of 2019 was US$0.9 million.

Other Factors Affecting Earnings

Total net non-operating expenses for the first quarter of 2019 were US$34.6 million, which mainly included interest expenses, of US$34.1 million.

Depreciation and amortization costs of US$43.1 million were recorded in the first quarter of 2019 of which US$0.8 million was related to the amortization expense for the land use right.

In January 2019, the Gaming Operator informed us via our subsidiary, Studio City Entertainment Limited, that it will cease VIP rolling chip operations at the Studio City Casino on January 15, 2020. Revenues from provision of gaming related services in relation to the Studio City Casino VIP gaming operations amounted to US$0.9 million in the first quarter of 2019, compared with US$12.3 million in the first quarter of 2018. The year-on-year decrease in revenues from provision of gaming related services in relation to the Studio City Casino VIP gaming operations was primarily due to the Macau market-wide VIP weakness and increasing competition in and around Cotai, which led to a decrease in Studio City’s rolling chip volume in the first quarter of 2019 as compared with the first quarter of 2018.

The Adjusted EBITDA for Studio City for the three months ended March 31, 2019 referred to in Melco’s earnings release dated May 7, 2019 (“Melco’s earnings release”) is US$12.2 million more than the Adjusted EBITDA of Studio City contained in this report. The Adjusted EBITDA of Studio City contained in this report includes certain intercompany charges that are not included in the Adjusted EBITDA for Studio City contained in the 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. Also, Adjusted EBITDA of Studio City included in the Melco’s earnings release does not reflect certain costs related to the VIP operations at Studio City Casino.

Financial Position and Capital Expenditures

Total cash and bank balances as of March 31, 2019 aggregated US$585.0 million (December 31, 2018: US$377.6 million), including US$49.2 million of restricted cash (December 31, 2018: US$31.7 million). Total debt, net of unamortized deferred financing costs at the end of the first quarter of 2019, was US$1.8 billion (December 31, 2018: US$1.6 billion).

Capital expenditures for the first quarter of 2019 were US$12.3 million.

Other Information

The Company is aware that New Cotai, LLC (“New Cotai”), a shareholder of Studio City, and certain of New Cotai’s affiliates have commenced a voluntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition in the Southern District of New York. The Company does not anticipate that the bankruptcy of New Cotai will have any material impact on the business or operations of Studio City or the funding or the timing of the development and construction of Studio City’s Phase II expansion. Melco continues to remain the majority shareholder of Studio City.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

(1) "Adjusted EBITDA" is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, pre-opening costs, property charges and other, 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. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of the historical non-GAAP financial measure to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. 

(2) “Adjusted net income/loss” is net income/loss before pre-opening costs, property charges and other, loss on extinguishment of debt and costs associated with debt modification, 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 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.
