Las Vegas Sands CEO says 'delivered solid financial results in the quarter'
"We delivered solid financial results in the quarter, with Adjusted Property EBITDA reaching $1.28 billion," said Sheldon Adelson, chairman and CEO. "We remain enthusiastic about our future growth opportunities in Asia. Next year, we will introduce approximately two million square feet of luxurious suite accommodations on the Cotai Strip with the opening of the Grand Suites at Four Seasons Macao and The Londoner Tower Suites. Additional tourism and entertainment amenities of The Londoner Macao will debut throughout 2020 and 2021. Looking further ahead, the expansion of Marina Bay Sands in Singapore will expand our suite capacity by 40% and introduce a state-of-the-art entertainment arena, both of which should contribute to growth in the future. We are also aggressively pursuing additional development opportunities in new markets, including in Japan. Finally, we remain deeply committed to maintaining our industry-leading financial strength while continuing to increase the return of capital to shareholders. I am pleased to announce the Las Vegas Sands Board of Directors has approved an increase in our annual dividend for the 2020 calendar year, our eighth consecutive annual increase, to $3.16 per share, or $0.79 per share per quarter."
