Dr. Lui Che Woo, Chairman of GEG said:


"I am pleased to report that GEG delivered solid results for the three months period ended 30 September 2018. Before going into details of our results I would like to make a few comments concerning super typhoon Mangkhut which impacted Macau last month.


On 16 September 2018 Macau experienced super typhoon Mangkhut which was reportedly as strong as Hato in August last year. Macau saw significantly less damages and injuries during this No. 10 typhoon Mangkhut, thanks to the precautionary measures taken by the Macau SAR Government and the community, including team members of GEG.


Firstly I would like to thank the Macau SAR Government for their leadership during this challenging event. I would also acknowledge the significant efforts of the civil protection teams, the broader community, our staff and fellow Concessionaires. Significant advanced warning was given which allowed for timely preparation. The Concessionaires, including GEG, worked closely with the Government both pre and post typhoon and helped the community recover from the event. In all, with strong leadership, active community involvement and careful preparation, Macau was substantially less impacted by typhoon Mangkhut when compared to previous typhoons.


Despite increased competition, with new property openings both in Macau and regionally, GEG delivered solid results with Q3 Adjusted EBITDA growing 10% year-on-year to $3.9 billion. It should be noted that during the quarter gaming operations played unlucky which reduced EBITDA by approximately $0.3 billion. Additionally Macau experienced adverse impacts from both the World Cup in July and typhoon Mangkhut in September. We continue to drive every segment of our business with a particular focus on yielding our resorts. GEG's renowned 'World Class, Asian Heart' service combined with our differentiated resorts offerings have resulted in our portfolio of hotels reporting virtually full occupancy.


GEG remains financially healthy with a solid balance sheet. Our balance sheet combined with substantial cash flow from operations allows us to return capital to shareholders through special dividends and to fund our development pipeline and international expansion plans. These include Cotai Phases 3 & 4, Hengqin and Japan. On 26 October 2018 we will pay the previously announced special dividend of $0.50 per share.


The continued growth in the rapidly emerging and underpenetrated middle-class in Mainland China and their demand for leisure and travel gives us confidence in the longer term outlook for Macau. However, I do acknowledge that the current international trade tensions, rising interest rates and a slowing economy may impact consumer sentiment in the short term. We are committed to support the Macau SAR Government's vision to develop Macau into a World Centre of Tourism and Leisure.   


I am very proud of our team members and I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to our executive team and all team members for their commitment and efforts in delivering these results, especially during typhoon Mangkhut."

On 26 October 2018 the Group will pay the previously announced special dividend of $0.50 per share.

Development Update


Cotai -- The Next Chapter


GEG is uniquely positioned for long term growth. We continue to move forward with Phases 3 & 4, which will include approximately 4,500 hotel rooms, including family and premium high end rooms, 400,000 square feet of MICE space, a 500,000 square feet 16,000-seat multi-purpose arena, F&B, retail and casinos, among others. We look forward to formally announcing our development plans in the future.


Hengqin


We continue to make progress with our concept plan for our Hengqin project. Hengqin will allow GEG to develop a low density leisure destination resort that will complement our high energy resorts in Macau.


International


On 20 July 2018 the Japanese Diet passed the Integrated Resort ("IR") Bill. We are very pleased with the recent passing of the IR Bill in Japan. We view Japan as a great long term growth opportunity that will complement our Macau operations and our other international expansion ambitions. GEG, together with Monte-Carlo SBM from the Principality of Monaco and our Japanese partners, look forward to bringing our brand of World Class IRs to Japan.

Outlook


We will continue to focus on driving every segment of our business and allocate resources to the highest and best use, whilst at the same time we will continue to exercise prudent cost control. Our philosophy is to manage the business over the medium to longer term horizon, but we are always conscience of shorter term impacts.


Our healthy balance sheet allows us to return capital to shareholders through special dividends and fund both our local development pipeline and explore international expansion opportunities. These include Phases 3 & 4, Hengqin and Japan.


Mainland China has significant demand for leisure, tourism and travel and GEG is well positioned to capitalize on this demand. The continuing expansion of the high speed train network and the opening of the Hong Kong - Zhuhai - Macau Bridge will further improve access to Macau. We believe that these infrastructure projects combined with the integration of the Greater Bay Area will continue to drive longer term growth in Macau.


However in the shorter term we are conscience of the potential impact of international trade tensions, rising interest rates and currency fluctuations. Additionally we continue to plan for the introduction of the full smoking ban, with the introduction of additional and upgraded smoking lounges early next year.


GEG with its world class portfolio of resorts, healthy balance sheet combined with our integrated resort development pipeline in Macau is well positioned for the future. GEG is committed to support the Macau Government's vision to develop Macau into a World Center of Tourism and Leisure.
