Melco Crown Entertainment Announces Unaudited Results for the Fourth Quarter and Full Year Ended December 31, 2016 and Declares Quarterly Dividend

MACAU, Feb. 16, 2017 (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 casino resort facilities in Asia, today reported its unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2016.

Net revenue for the fourth quarter of 2016 was US$1,192.9 million, representing an increase of approximately 13% from US$1,058.0 million for the comparable period in 2015. The increase in net revenue was primarily attributable to the net revenue generated by a fully-operating Studio City, which started operations in October 2015, and the increase in casino revenues at City of Dreams Manila, partially offset by lower casino revenues at City of Dreams in Macau and Altira Macau.

On a U.S. GAAP basis, operating income for the fourth quarter of 2016 was US$116.0 million, compared with operating loss of US$17.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2015.

Adjusted property EBITDA(1) was US$304.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2016, as compared to Adjusted property EBITDA of US$236.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2015, representing an increase of 29%. This year-on-year improvement in Adjusted property EBITDA was mainly attributable to the contribution from a fully-operating Studio City and increase in casino revenues at City of Dreams Manila, partially offset by lower contribution from Altira Macau.

On a U.S. GAAP basis, net income attributable to Melco Crown Entertainment for the fourth quarter of 2016 was US$43.3 million, or US$0.09 per ADS, compared with a net loss attributable to Melco Crown Entertainment of US$12.3 million, or US$0.02 per ADS, in the fourth quarter of 2015. The net loss attributable to noncontrolling interests during the fourth quarter of 2016 of US$26.8 million was related to Studio City and City of Dreams Manila.

Mr. Lawrence Ho, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Melco Crown Entertainment, commented, “We delivered a strong set of results in the fourth quarter of 2016, highlighted by record mass table gross gaming revenues in Macau and a 29% year-on-year increase in group-wide Adjusted property EBITDA.

“Our Flagship property in Macau, City of Dreams, generated Adjusted property EBITDA of approximately US$190 million, an increase of over 10% compared to the prior quarter, despite an increase in supply in Macau, highlighting the property’s ongoing position as a leader in the premium gaming segments in Macau.

“Studio City’s mass table games revenues continued to expand, increasing almost 10% from the prior quarter which, combined with the rolling chip operations that began in November 2016, delivered a strong improvement in underlying earnings. While the recently opened rolling chip operations broaden the property’s gaming proposition, Studio City’s core focus remains on its mass market offerings which are ideally aligned to the demand landscape in Macau.

“Macau continues to show signs of a broader recovery, with January 2017 representing the sixth month in a row of year-on-year increases in Macau’s gross gaming revenues. We believe that Macau’s long term success relies on its ability to cater to the rapidly evolving demands of leisure and entertainment seekers from around the region, most notably from Mainland China. Our world-class portfolio of properties in Macau gives us a unique ability to cater to a wider spectrum of gaming customers, including mainstream mass, premium mass, junket and direct VIP customers, while also offering tourists a vast non-gaming and entertainment proposition which is unrivalled in Macau.

“City of Dreams Manila, our integrated resort in the fast growing gaming market of the Philippines, continues to increase its gaming market share by delivering another strong quarter fueled by revenue growth across all gaming segments. The improvement in gaming operations together with cost efficiencies identified through our company-wide focus on managing reinvestment and other operating expenses, resulted in our Adjusted property EBITDA in Manila increasing by 224% on a year-on-year basis.

“As previously announced, we have changed our ordinary dividend policy to one targeting a quarterly cash dividend payment of US$0.03 per ordinary share (equivalent to US$0.09 per American depositary share (“ADS”), each representing three ordinary shares) of the Company, providing a larger, stable and more predictable ordinary dividend payout. In addition, we recently announced and paid an approximately US$650 million special dividend to shareholders, highlighting our continued commitment to returning surplus capital to shareholders, while retaining significant financial flexibility to pursue other value-accretive development opportunities.

“Our Company has undergone an exciting transformation over the past several months. Melco International Development Limited, a company of which I am Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, has completed the acquisition of an additional 13.4% of the shares of Melco Crown Entertainment earlier today, increasing its ownership in the Company to approximately 51.3%. This transaction highlights the steadfast confidence and commitment I have in the markets where we operate, the development and expansion opportunities that are available to our Company, the positioning of our world-class properties and, most importantly, our tremendous employees and current management team that continue to deliver a level of service and experience which underpins our Company’s success.”

City of Dreams Fourth Quarter Results

For the quarter ended December 31, 2016, net revenue at City of Dreams was US$661.1 million compared to US$669.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. City of Dreams generated Adjusted EBITDA of US$188.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2016, representing a decrease of 2% compared to US$192.2 million in the comparable period of 2015. The decline in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily a result of lower mass market table games revenues and rolling chip revenues, partially offset by an increase in non-gaming revenue mainly driven by the opening of the new retail precinct in 2016.

Rolling chip volume totaled US$11.1 billion for the fourth quarter of 2016 versus US$10.2 billion in the fourth quarter of 2015. The rolling chip win rate was 2.6% in the fourth quarter of 2016 versus 2.8% in the fourth quarter of 2015. The expected rolling chip win rate range is 2.7%-3.0%.

Altira Macau generated Adjusted EBITDA of US$3.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2016 compared with Adjusted EBITDA of US$9.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. The year-on-year decrease in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily a result of lower rolling chip revenues.

City of Dreams Manila generated Adjusted EBITDA of US$50.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2016 compared to US$15.5 million in the comparable period of 2015.

We recorded US$7.7 million of capitalized interest during the fourth quarter of 2016, primarily relating to the development of Morpheus at City of Dreams.

The year-on-year increase of US$35.4 million in net non-operating expenses was primarily a result of loss on extinguishment of debt arising from the refinancing of the Studio City project facility and lower capitalized interest in the current quarter.

Depreciation and amortization costs of US$137.5 million were recorded in the fourth quarter of 2016, of which US$14.3 million was related to the amortization of our gaming subconcession and US$5.7 million was related to the amortization of land use rights.

Full Year Results

For the year ended December 31, 2016, Melco Crown Entertainment reported net revenue of US$4.5 billion versus US$4.0 billion in the prior year. The year-on-year increase in net revenue was primarily attributable to the net revenue generated by a fully-operating Studio City and the increase in casino revenues at City of Dreams Manila, partially offset by lower casino revenues at City of Dreams in Macau and Altira Macau.

On a U.S. GAAP basis, operating income for 2016 was US$363.1 million, compared with operating income of US$98.4 million for 2015.

Adjusted property EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2016 was US$1,087.5 million, as compared with Adjusted property EBITDA of US$932.0 million in 2015. The 17% year-on-year improvement in Adjusted property EBITDA was mainly attributable to the contribution from a fully-operating Studio City and increase in casino revenues at City of Dreams Manila, partially offset by lower contribution from City of Dreams in Macau and Altira Macau.

On a U.S. GAAP basis, net income attributable to Melco Crown Entertainment for 2016 was US$175.9 million, or US$0.35 per ADS, compared with a net income attributable to Melco Crown Entertainment of US$105.7 million, or US$0.20 per ADS, for 2015. The net loss attributable to noncontrolling interests for 2016 of US$109.0 million was related to Studio City and City of Dream Manila.

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 markets and visitations 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, net gain on disposal of property and equipment to Belle Corporation 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, net gain on disposal of property and equipment to Belle Corporation, Corporate and Others expenses and other non-operating income and expenses. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted property EBITDA are presented exclusively as supplemental disclosures because management believes 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” is net income before net gain on disposal of property and equipment to Belle Corporation, pre-opening costs, development costs, property charges and others, loss on extinguishment of debt and costs associated with debt modification, net of noncontrolling interests and taxes calculated using specific tax treatments applicable to the adjustments based on their respective jurisdictions. Adjusted net income attributable to Melco Crown Entertainment and adjusted net income attributable to Melco Crown Entertainment per share (EPS”) are presented as supplemental disclosures because management believes 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 attributable to Melco Crown Entertainment and adjusted net income 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 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.
