Sands China Expects Profits Boost from Gaming Tables

Having received government approval for a further 200 gaming tables, Sands China can expect to see significant rises in profits and revenues over the coming years.

The approval was announced by Sands China Chief Executive Officer Edward Tracy in a press conference last Monday.

It is thought that the gambling operator will see around $500 million in added revenue each year from the new tables.

It will also get an extra $200 million of Ebitda, earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation each year.

Sands China and its rivals such as Galaxy Entertainment Group Ltd, have been expanding on Macau’s popular Cotai strip for the past few years.

The Cotai strip has become Asia’s Las Vegas and Sands is planning to invest a minimum of $2.5 billion to build its fifth resort, The Parisian, in Macau.
