Sands China announced financial results for the 2014 fiscal year on Friday, and has reported all-time highs in all three key performance indicators: net revenues, adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization) and profit. Net revenues for 2014 increased 6.7 percent to USD9,505.2 million. Increases were recorded in every segment of the business. These were mainly driven by increased visitation, resulting from efforts in marketing and management’s focus on both mass market and VIP guests.
Adjusted EBITDA for 2014 were at an all-time high USD3,261.0 million, an increase of 12.4 percent compared to figures from 2013. The performance was driven by revenue increases in all business segments as a result of an increase in visitation, management’s continued focus on both mass market and VIP guests, and the company’s integrated resort business model. Profit for 2014 also increased 15.0 percent to a record USD2,547.7 million. “Our properties continue to generate market-leading visitation, and in 2014 we welcomed nearly 70 million visitors to our properties. We are incredibly proud to help drive increased visitation to Macau and Cotai from across the region, and to contribute to Macau’s diversification,” said Sheldon Adelson, Chairman of Sands China.
