Melco Crown Entertainment Declares Special Dividend and Announces Unaudited Results for the Fourth Quarter and Full Year Ended December 31, 2015

MACAU, Feb. 18, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Melco Crown Entertainment Limited (Nasdaq:MPEL) (“Melco Crown Entertainment” or the “Company” or “we”), a developer, owner and operator of casino gaming and entertainment resort facilities in Asia, today reported its unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2015.

Net revenue for the fourth quarter of 2015 was US$1,058.0 million, representing a decrease of approximately 6% from US$1,121.4 million for the comparable period in 2014. The decline in net revenue was primarily attributable to lower rolling chip revenues and mass market table games revenues in City of Dreams and Altira Macau, partially offset by the net revenue generated by Studio City and City of Dreams Manila, which started operations in October 2015 and December 2014, respectively.

Adjusted property EBITDA(1) was US$236.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2015, as compared to Adjusted property EBITDA of US$278.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2014. The 15% year-over-year decline in Adjusted property EBITDA was attributable to lower contribution from the group-wide rolling chip segment.

On a U.S. GAAP basis, net loss attributable to Melco Crown Entertainment for the fourth quarter of 2015 was US$12.3 million, or US$0.02 per ADS, compared with net income attributable to Melco Crown Entertainment of US$92.9 million, or US$0.17 per ADS, in the fourth quarter of 2014. The net loss attributable to noncontrolling interests during the fourth quarter of 2015 of US$65.6 million was related to Studio City and City of Dreams Manila.

Adjusted net income(2) attributable to Melco Crown Entertainment for the fourth quarter of 2015 was US$46.7 million, or US$0.09 per ADS, compared with adjusted net income attributable to Melco Crown Entertainment of US$123.3 million, or US$0.23 per ADS, in the fourth quarter of 2014.

Mr. Lawrence Ho, Co-Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Melco Crown Entertainment, commented, “We delivered a strong set of operating and financial metrics in what is a still challenging environment in Macau, with our Macau-wide mass market table games revenues increasing on both a sequential and year-over-year basis in the fourth quarter of 2015.

“With the successful opening of our latest integrated resort, Studio City, we have further expanded our market share in Macau and increased our exposure to the more resilient and profitable mass market segments, a forward thinking strategy which we embarked on several years ago with the design and development of our flagship integrated resort, City of Dreams in Macau.

“Studio City’s unique Hollywood-theme and entertainment centric offering provides an ideal complement to our current portfolio of assets in Macau, particularly the premium-focused integrated resort, City of Dreams, enabling us to cater to a greater breadth of customers seeking a multi-dimensional leisure and tourism experience.

“Our position of leadership in developing Macau’s mass market and non-gaming amenities highlights our commitment to the ongoing evolution of Macau into the region’s leading destination for leisure and entertainment seekers, ensuring economic and employment diversification for Macau.

“In the Philippines, City of Dreams Manila continues to grow a more diversified revenue stream, with the continuing ramp of the rolling chip business complementing its mass market gaming and non-gaming segments. We remain confident in the long term success of the Philippines’ gaming market given the country’s anticipated economic growth and supportive demographics, together with an expanding and Government-supported inbound tourism market.

“Although we have not declared a quarterly dividend for the fourth quarter of 2015, on behalf of the Board, I am delighted to announce a special dividend of US$350 million, demonstrating the impressive cash flow generation from our high quality properties and our strong balance sheet, which has enabled us to return surplus capital to shareholders while continuing to invest in value accretive opportunities. Furthermore, as visibility regarding our operating and regulatory environment continues to improve, we remain committed to maximizing cash distributions to shareholders, which includes a review of our current dividend payout ratio of 30% of net income attributable to Melco Crown Entertainment.”

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. These factors include, but are not limited to, (i) growth of the gaming market and visitation in Macau and the Philippines, (ii) capital and credit market volatility, (iii) local and global economic conditions, (iv) our anticipated growth strategies, (v) gaming authority and other governmental approvals and regulations, and (vi) our future business development, results of operations and financial condition. 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 others, share-based compensation, payments to the Philippine parties under the cooperative arrangement (the “Philippine Parties”), land rent to Belle Corporation, gain on disposal of assets held for sale 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 others, share-based compensation, payments to the Philippine Parties, land rent to Belle Corporation, gain on disposal of assets held for sale, corporate and others expenses and other non-operating income and expenses. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted property EBITDA are presented exclusively as a supplemental disclosure because management believes that 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 (loss)” is net income (loss) before pre-opening costs, development costs, property charges and others, loss on extinguishment of debt and costs associated with debt modification. Adjusted net income (loss) attributable to Melco Crown Entertainment and adjusted net income (loss) attributable to Melco Crown Entertainment per share (“EPS”) are presented as supplemental disclosures because management believes that 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 (loss) attributable to Melco Crown Entertainment and adjusted net income (loss) attributable to Melco Crown Entertainment per share 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 Melco Crown Entertainment 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.
