Understanding the Quarter’s Momentum

Key Factors

Increased activity at MGM China and improvements in cross-play between regional operations and Las Vegas are expected to augment fourth-quarter revenues. Furthermore, strong demand for events like the Super Bowl and Formula One, along with enhancements in omnichannel marketing offerings, likely contributed to the company’s performance during this period.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for fourth-quarter revenues at MGM China stands at $850 million, showing a substantial increase from the $175 million reported in the previous year’s quarter.

The company’s revenues from rooms, food and beverage, and casino are predicted to have surged, likely driven by solid contributions. Additionally, focus on sports betting and iGaming are expected to provide a boost.

However, incremental expenses related to labor, incentive fees, IT and cybersecurity issues, and the Cosmopolitan integration might have impacted the bottom line unfavorably.
