The company operates Winn Palace Resort (pictured) in Kotai and also operates Win Macao Resort on the urban peninsula. Win Macao Inc. is a subsidiary of Winn Resorts Inc., a U.S.-based casino developer.

Wynn Macau Inc Wynn reported adjusted profit of just under $339.6 million in interest, taxation, depreciation, amortisation and rent (EBITDAR), up 14.3%, compared to 118.0% a year earlier.

“We generated $340 million in EBITDA for the quarter with total gaming revenue [GGR] market share above both the previous quarter and 2019 exit rates,” said Craig Billings, CEO of Wynn Resorts Group, on a conference call with investment analysts on Tuesday.

“We stayed above our expected range, so on a fully normalized basis, EBITDA would be approximately $320 million,” the CEO said. However, he added, “The strength of our business continued into the second quarter.”

In a note on Wednesday, JPMorgan Securities (Asia-Pacific) said WinMacao’s first-quarter real estate EBITDA was “able for margins to reach their highest level in about a decade, thanks to solid public market share and cost discipline of about 13.5% versus 12.5% in the latest quarter.”

“Solid momentum lasts well into the second quarter year to date and according to [Wynn] management, volume volumes are 30% above pre-COVID levels,” DS Kim, Selina Li and Mufan Shi analysts wrote.

Wynn Macau Inc’s casino revenue rose 11.1% quarter-over-quarter to $820.1 million, compared with just under $447.1 million in casino revenue in the first quarter of 2023.

According to JPMorgan, mass GGR including slots in Win Macao Inc “increased 9% quarter-on-quarter to reflect continued strength in premium mass, up 23% from pre-COVID and VIP rolling volumes increased 21% quarter-on-quarter, on a lower basis.”

On a real estate basis, Wynn Palace’s operating revenue rose 11.9% sequentially to $586.9 million, compared with $369.4 million in operating revenue in the prior year.

Adjusted EBITDA for the property was $202.4 million, up 18.3% quarter-over-quarter and up 82.2% year-over-year.
