Recent News & Updates
Las Vegas Sands Has A Macau And Convention Revenue Problem
Las Vegas Sands is no longer present in Las Vegas, and its assets are now the Marina Bay and its Macau assets. Run-rate EBITDA should recover in Singapore to half the 2019 levels, but Macau is a lot less clear due to severe lockdowns. Macau casinos will lose LVS about $20 million per day in total lockdown, and the recent market slide prices in about 250 days of lockdown, which is reasonable. Overall, we still prefer MLCO on the basis that it has more incoming mitigants for its more penalised Macau exposure, but both will also have to face macro headwinds. Published on the Value Lab 14/7/22 Macau casino stocks are a rough place to have cash, now that lockdowns akin to the 2020 ones are being reinstituted as part of China's zero-COVID effort. Market declines are pricing in about 250 days of lockdown in Macau for big player Las Vegas Sands (LVS) which might be excessive. New cash proceeds from the Las Vegas sales help out the debt situation a bit, and Singapore looks to be recovering pretty well to about half of 2019 levels. While being less risky than Melco Resorts (MLCO), it's still speculative and MLCO is more unreasonably penalised in our view, so we prefer them. Nonetheless, there is value in these casino stocks, but the timing makes them too risky, especially when the grail of convention revenue is being threatened by macro headwinds too. Breakdown Of Las Vegas Sands As of now, exposure between Macau and Singapore is about 2:3, which is not a bad ratio with Singapore coming back online these last couple of months. Singapore is seeing run-rate EBITDAs that are at about half of 2019 levels as part of the recovery, and have scope for longer-term recovery as people become less skittish about mobility. We think about $200 million in quarterly EBITDA is very feasible for this segment, while Macau should produce about $108 million in losses based on total closure run-rate figures. So, the company should produce positive EBITDA of about $100 million on a run-rate quarterly basis, which isn't bad, especially with their debt load falling to about 25% D/E thanks to the Las Vegas sales, which is high but not extremely alarming given the maturities are focused in 2025.
