A spokesman for Macao’s oldest gaming company said its net gaming revenue increased 18.8 per cent to HK$5.07 billion in the first six months of the year.
Adjusted EBITDA improved by 48.2 per cent to a negative HK$510 million from a negative HK$984 million. Loss attributable to the owners of the company was HK$1.46 billion, 3.8 per cent greater than the HK$1.41 billion in the year-earlier period.
SJM Resorts had an 11.6 per cent share of Macao’s gaming revenue in the first half of the year, including 15.6 per cent of mass market table gross gaming revenue and 5 per cent of VIP gross gaming revenue.

We anticipate continued growth in the second half of 2021, and we are very pleased that our Grand Lisboa Palace resort is now open to welcome the increasing flow of visitors.”
