Melco Crown Entertainment Announces Unaudited Results For The Fourth Quarter And Full Year Ended December 31, 2012

Stocks in this article: MPEL

MACAU, Feb. 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Melco Crown Entertainment Limited ("Melco Crown Entertainment" or the "Company") (SEHK:6883) (NASDAQ:MPEL), a developer and owner of casino gaming and entertainment resort facilities currently focused on the Macau market, today released its unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter of 2012.

Net revenue for the fourth quarter of 2012 was US$1,101.8 million, representing an increase of approximately 9% from US$1,008.3 million for the comparable period in 2011. The increase in net revenue was primarily attributable to substantially improved group-wide mass table games and gaming machines revenue and higher group-wide rolling chip volumes, partially offset by a lower group-wide rolling chip win rate.

Adjusted EBITDA <1> was US$247.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, as compared to Adjusted EBITDA of US$231.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. The 7% year-over-year improvement in Adjusted EBITDA in the fourth quarter of 2012 was driven by stronger mass market revenues together with our ongoing commitment to control costs, partially offset by a lower group-wide rolling chip win rate.

On a U.S. GAAP basis, net income attributable to Melco Crown Entertainment for the fourth quarter of 2012 was US$108.0 million, or US$0.20 per ADS, compared with net income attributable to Melco Crown Entertainment of US$107.5 million, or US$0.20 per ADS, in the fourth quarter of 2011. The year-over-year increase in net income was primarily a result of the meaningful improvements in operating fundamentals at City of Dreams and Altira Macau, partially offset by development costs for the Philippines project as well as lower group-wide win rate. The net loss attributable to non-controlling interests during the fourth quarter of 2012 was US$6.7 million as compared to US$3.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. The net loss attributable to non-controlling interests relates to Studio City, with the year-over-year increase attributable to the US$825 million Studio City senior note interest incurred during the fourth quarter of 2012.
