elco said the stellar results in the half year were mainly attributable to improved performance in the group-wide rolling chip and mass market table games segments.
Lawrence Ho, group chairman and CEO of Melco International noted that visitation has been on the rise in Macau and players are “coming back to the tables.”
“With our exposure balanced among VIP and mass gamers, as well as the broader tourism market, we are cautiously optimistic as the overall market begins to show signs of recovery and new infrastructure developments come online in the near future.”
“In the meantime, we will continue to invest in our properties to ensure our integrated resorts are best positioned to thrive ahead of these evolving trends,” he added.
Melco International has declared the payment of an interim dividend of HK2.2 cents per share for the six-month period ended 30 June 2017.
