Las Vegas Sands (LVS) Posts Big Earnings Beat, Revenues Up 7.7%

Las Vegas Sands Corp. LVS just released its third quarter fiscal 2017 earnings results, posting earnings of 77 cents per share and revenue of $3.2 billion. Currently, LVS is a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold), and is up 1.65% to $63.95 per share in trading shortly after its earnings report was released.

The casino giant:

Beat earnings estimates. The company posted earnings of 77 cents per share, soaring past the Zacks Consensus Estimate of 67 cents per share; this number excludes 5 cents from non-recurring items. Net income was $685 million for the quarter.

Beat revenue estimates. The company saw revenue figures of $3.2 billion, topping our consensus estimate of $3.12 billion and increasing 7.7% year-over-year.

Consolidated adjusted property EBITDA increased 6% to $1.21 billion, while LVS said that hold-normalized adjusted property EBITDA surged 10.4% to $1.18 billion.

The company said that total net revenues for Sands China increased 12.2% to $1.93 billion, and The Venetian Macao generated revenues of $718 million.

"In Macao, the market continues to recover, while Sands China's Mass and VIP gaming volumes both outpaced the growth in the Macao market overall. That strong gaming performance, coupled with higher hotel occupancy and retail mall revenues, helped drive an adjusted property EBITDA performance of $652 million, our best quarterly result since the first quarter of 2014,” said Sheldon G. Adelson, chairman and CEO.
