Second Quarter Overview

Mr. Sheldon G. Adelson, chairman and chief executive officer, said, "We are pleased to have delivered a strong set of financial results during the quarter, led by another quarter of growth in Macao and a record-setting performance in Singapore. The benefits of our convention-based Integrated Resort business model remain evident in our financial results, with adjusted property EBITDA increasing 26.5% compared to the second quarter of 2016, reaching $1.21 billion. We also continued to return excess capital to shareholders during the quarter.

"In Macao, the recovery in the market overall continued during the quarter, with market-wide gross gaming revenues increasing 21.9% in the second quarter of 2017. Our market-leading critical mass of hotel, retail and entertainment offerings on the Cotai Strip allowed us to grow our premium mass revenues by nearly 40%, an outstanding performance in this important segment, while our mass gaming revenues overall grew by 22.5%. Strong mass revenue growth, coupled with higher hotel occupancy and growth in the VIP segment all contributed to a 23% increase in our adjusted property EBITDA in Macao, which reached $600 million in the quarter.

"The Parisian Macao continued to exhibit growth, enjoying strong visitation and delivering adjusted property EBITDA of $106 million for the quarter. The Parisian has firmly established itself as a ’must-see’ destination for visitors to the Cotai Strip, delivering sequential growth in hotel occupancy, ADR and gaming volumes, while mass win per day of $2.44 million was the highest result since the property’s opening last year. We expect The Parisian to continue to deliver growth in the quarters and years ahead as the Macao market grows and as we continue to refine the property’s service offerings to appeal to the fastest growing and most profitable segments in the Macao market.

"We have invested over $13 billion in Macao since 2002, while consistently contributing to Macao’s diversification and appeal as a business and leisure tourism destination. We continue to lead the market not only in Integrated Resort development, but in the long-term and vital investment in the marketing of Macao as Asia’s leading business and leisure tourism destination. We remain confident that our market-leading Cotai Strip portfolio of properties will continue to provide the economic benefits of diversification to Macao, help attract greater numbers of business and leisure travelers, and provide both Macao and our Company with a superior platform for future growth.

"Marina Bay Sands delivered a record quarter with adjusted property EBITDA increasing 37.8% to reach a record $492 million. Marina Bay Sands’ innovative programming, consistent mass gaming play, strength in non-gaming revenues and higher hold in VIP play compared to the same quarter last year all contributed to the outstanding performance. We are pleased to have established Marina Bay Sands as a reference site for other cities and countries that are considering harnessing the economic power and direct contributions to tourism, employment and GDP growth of our unique convention-based Integrated Resort business model.

The company’s recurring quarterly dividend remains the cornerstone of our program to return excess capital to shareholders, and the company paid a recurring quarterly dividend of $0.73 per common share during the quarter. The company announced that its next recurring quarterly dividend of $0.73 per common share will be paid on September 29, 2017, to Las Vegas Sands shareholders of record on September 21, 2017. In addition, the company repurchased $75 million of common stock (1.2 million shares at a weighted average price of $61.97) during the quarter ended June 30, 2017.

"Looking ahead we remain focused on the execution of our proven global growth strategy, which leverages the power of our unique convention-based Integrated Resort business model. We remain confident in our ability to bring the economic benefits of our proven business model to promising new markets around the world."

Company-Wide Operating Results

Net revenue for the second quarter of 2017 increased 18.6% to $3.14 billion, compared to $2.65 billion in the second quarter of 2016. Net income increased 61.9% to $638 million in the second quarter of 2017, compared to $394 million in the year-ago quarter.

On a GAAP (accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America) basis, operating income in the second quarter of 2017 increased 57.5% to $816 million, compared to $518 million in the second quarter of 2016. The increase in operating income was a result of stronger results across the company’s Macao, Singapore and Las Vegas property portfolio, partially offset by higher depreciation and amortization expenses during the quarter due primarily to the opening of The Parisian Macao in September 2016. Consolidated adjusted property EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure) of $1.21 billion increased 26.5% in the second quarter of 2017, compared to the year-ago quarter. On a hold-normalized basis, adjusted property EBITDA was $1.11 billion in the second quarter of 2017, an increase of 14.6% from the prior-year quarter.

On a GAAP basis, net income attributable to Las Vegas Sands in the second quarter of 2017 increased 66.2% to $545 million, compared to $328 million in the second quarter of 2016, while diluted earnings per share in the second quarter of 2017 of $0.69 represented an increase of 68.3% compared to the prior-year quarter. The increase in net income attributable to Las Vegas Sands reflected the increase in operating income described above, partially offset by increases in net income attributable to noncontrolling interests, income tax expense and other expense.

Adjusted net income attributable to Las Vegas Sands (a non-GAAP measure) increased 36.8% to $576 million, or $0.73 per diluted share, compared to $421 million, or $0.53 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2016.

Other Factors Affecting Earnings

Depreciation and amortization expense was $327 million in the second quarter of 2017, compared to $255 million in the second quarter of 2016. This increase was driven primarily by the opening of The Parisian Macao.

Interest expense, net of amounts capitalized, was $79 million for the second quarter of 2017, compared to $64 million in the prior-year quarter. Capitalized interest was nominal during the second quarter of 2017, compared to $11 million during the second quarter of 2016. Our weighted average borrowing cost in the second quarter of 2017 was approximately 3.0%.

Other expense, which was comprised primarily of foreign currency losses, was $25 million for the second quarter of 2017, compared to $7 million in the second quarter of 2016.

The company’s effective income tax rate for the second quarter of 2017 was 10.9% compared to 12.2% in the prior-year quarter. The tax rate is primarily driven by a provision for the earnings from Marina Bay Sands at the 17% Singapore income tax rate.

The net income attributable to noncontrolling interests during the second quarter of 2017 of $93 million was principally related to SCL.

Balance Sheet Items

Unrestricted cash balances as of June 30, 2017 were $2.31 billion.

As of June 30, 2017, total debt outstanding, including the current portion and net of deferred financing costs (excluding those costs related to our revolving facilities) and original issue discount, was $10.14 billion.

Capital Expenditures

Capital expenditures during the second quarter totaled $178 million, including construction, development and maintenance activities of $110 million in Macao, $36 million at Marina Bay Sands, $27 million in Las Vegas and $5 million at Sands Bethlehem.

Conference Call Information

The company will host a conference call to discuss the company’s results on Wednesday, July 26, 2017 at 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time. Interested parties may listen to the conference call through a webcast available on the company’s website at www.sands.com.

Las Vegas Sands Corp. Second Quarter 2017 Results Non-GAAP Measures

Within the company’s second quarter 2017 press release, the company makes reference to certain non-GAAP financial measures that supplement the company’s consolidated financial information prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") including "adjusted net income," "adjusted earnings per diluted share," and "consolidated adjusted property EBITDA," which have directly comparable GAAP financial measures along with "adjusted property EBITDA margin," "hold-normalized adjusted property EBITDA," "hold-normalized adjusted property EBITDA margin," "hold-normalized adjusted net income," and "hold-normalized adjusted earnings per diluted share." The company believes these measures represent important internal measures of financial performance. Set forth in the financial schedules accompanying this release are reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. The non-GAAP financial measure disclosure by the company has limitations and should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, the financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. The definitions of our non-GAAP financial measures and the specific reasons why the company’s management believes that the presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information to investors regarding the company’s financial condition, results of operations and cash flows are presented below.

The following non-GAAP financial measures are used by management, as well as industry analysts, to evaluate the company’s operations and operating performance. These non-GAAP financial measures are presented so that investors have the same financial data that management uses in evaluating financial performance with the belief that it will assist the investment community in properly assessing the underlying financial performance of the company on a year-over-year and a quarter sequential basis.

Adjusted net income, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, excludes certain non-recurring corporate expenses, pre-opening expense, development expense, gain or loss on disposal of assets, loss on modification or early retirement of debt and other income or expense, attributable to Las Vegas Sands, net of income tax. Adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per diluted share are presented as supplemental disclosures as management believes they are (1) each widely used measures of performance by industry analysts and investors and (2) a principal basis for valuation of Integrated Resort companies, as these non-GAAP measures are considered by many as alternative measures on which to base expectations for future results. These measures also form the basis of certain internal management performance expectations.

Consolidated adjusted property EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, is net income before stock-based compensation expense, corporate expense, pre-opening expense, development expense, depreciation and amortization, amortization of leasehold interests in land, gain or loss on disposal of assets, interest, other income or expense, gain or loss on modification or early retirement of debt and income taxes. Management utilizes consolidated adjusted property EBITDA to compare the operating profitability of its operations with those of its competitors, as well as a basis for determining certain incentive compensation. Integrated Resort companies have historically reported adjusted property EBITDA as a supplemental performance measure to GAAP financial measures. In order to view the operations of their casinos on a more stand-alone basis, Integrated Resort companies, including Las Vegas Sands, have historically excluded certain expenses that do not relate to the management of specific properties, such as pre-opening expense, development expense and corporate expense, from their adjusted property EBITDA calculations. Consolidated adjusted property EBITDA should not be interpreted as an alternative to income from operations (as an indicator of operating performance) or to cash flows from operations (as a measure of liquidity), in each case, as determined in accordance with GAAP. The company has significant uses of cash flow, including capital expenditures, dividend payments, interest payments and debt principal payments, which are not reflected in consolidated adjusted property EBITDA. Not all companies calculate adjusted property EBITDA in the same manner. As a result, consolidated adjusted property EBITDA as presented by Las Vegas Sands may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

Hold-normalized adjusted property EBITDA, a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure, that, in addition to the aforementioned reasons for the presentation of consolidated adjusted property EBITDA, is presented to adjust for the impact of certain variances in table games’ win percentages, which can vary from period to period. Hold-normalized adjusted property EBITDA is based on applying a Rolling Chip win percentage of 3.15% to the Rolling Chip volume for the quarter if the actual win percentage is outside the expected range of 3.0% to 3.3% for our Macao properties, applying a Rolling Chip win percentage of 2.85% to the Rolling Chip volume for the quarter if the actual win percentage is outside the expected range of 2.7% to 3.0% for our Singapore property, and applying a win percentage of 22.0% for Baccarat and 20.0% for non-Baccarat games to the respective table games drops for the quarter if the actual win percentages are outside the expected ranges of 18.0% to 26.0% for Baccarat and 16.0% to 24.0% for non-Baccarat at our Las Vegas properties. No hold adjustments are made for Sands Bethlehem. We do not present adjustments for Non-Rolling Chip drop for our table games play at our Macao and Singapore properties, nor for slots at any of our properties. Hold-normalized adjusted property EBITDA is also adjusted for the estimated gaming taxes, commissions paid to third parties on the incremental win, bad debt expense, discounts and other incentives that would have been incurred when applying the win percentages noted above to the respective gaming volumes. The hold-normalized adjusted property EBITDA measure presents a consistent measure for evaluating the operating performance of our properties from period to period.

Hold-normalized adjusted net income and hold-normalized adjusted earnings per diluted share are additional supplemental non-GAAP financial measures that, in addition to the aforementioned reasons for the presentation of adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per diluted share, are presented to adjust for the impact of certain variances in table games’ win percentages, which can vary from period to period.

The company may also present the above items on a constant currency basis. This information is a non-GAAP financial measure that is calculated by translating current quarter local currency amounts to U.S. dollars based on prior period exchange rates. These amounts are compared to the prior period to derive non-GAAP constant-currency growth/decline. Management considers non-GAAP constant-currency growth/decline to be a useful metric to investors and management as it allows a more direct comparison of current performance to historical performance.

The company also makes reference to adjusted property EBITDA margin and hold-normalized adjusted property EBITDA margin, which are calculated using the aforementioned non-GAAP financial measures.

(1) For Macao Property Operations and Marina Bay Sands, this represents the estimated incremental casino revenue related to Rolling volume play that would have been earned or lost had the company’s current period win percentage equaled 3.15% for Macao Operations and 2.85% for Marina Bay Sands. This calculation will only be applied if the current period win percentage is outside the expected range of 3.0% to 3.3% for Macao Operations and 2.7% to 3.0% for Marina Bay Sands. The company revised the expected target and range for its Macao Operations due to the Rolling win percentage experienced over the last several years. The prior year non-GAAP measurement for our Macao Operations has also been adjusted to reflect this change for comparison purposes.
For the Las Vegas Operating Properties, this represents the estimated incremental casino revenue related to all table games play that would have been earned or lost had the company’s current period win percentage equaled 22.0% for Baccarat and 20.0% for non-Baccarat. This calculation will only be applied if the current period win percentages for Baccarat and non-Baccarat are outside the expected ranges of 18.0% to 26.0% and 16.0% to 24.0%, respectively. The company revised the expected target and range for its Las Vegas Operating Properties due to the win percentage experienced over the last several years. The prior year non-GAAP measurement has also been adjusted to reflect this change for comparison purposes.
For Sands Bethlehem, no adjustments have been made.
These amounts have been offset by the estimated commissions paid and discounts and other incentives rebated directly or indirectly to customers.
(2) Represents the estimated incremental expenses (gaming taxes, bad debt expense and commissions paid to third parties) that would have been incurred or avoided on the incremental casino revenue calculated in (1) above.
