Fourth Quarter Overview

Mr. Sheldon G. Adelson, chairman and chief executive officer, said, "We are pleased to have delivered strong financial results in the quarter, led by record mass revenues and continued growth in every market segment in Macao. Our Integrated Resort property portfolio in Macao delivered adjusted property EBITDA of $786 million, an increase of 7.7% compared to the fourth quarter of 2017. At Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, our hotel, retail, convention and mass gaming segments all exhibited growth, contributing to $362 million of adjusted property EBITDA for the quarter.

We also continued to invest in growth initiatives in each of our markets. We remain confident in the future opportunity in Macao and are progressing with our investments in the Four Seasons Tower Suites Macao, St. Regis Tower Suites Macao and The Londoner Macao. We believe our market-leading interconnected Integrated Resort portfolio in Macao, including the additional destination retail, luxurious hotel suite offerings and world class entertainment attractions created by these investments, will provide an ideal platform for growth in Macao in the years ahead."

The company paid a recurring quarterly dividend of $0.75 per common share and increased its return of capital through share repurchases of $430 million during the quarter. The company increased the annual dividend for the 2019 calendar year to $3.08, or $0.77 per common share per quarter, and announced its next quarterly dividend of $0.77 per common share will be paid on March 28, 2019, to Las Vegas Sands shareholders of record on March 20, 2019.

Company-Wide Operating Results

Net revenue for the fourth quarter of 2018 increased 2.5% to $3.48 billion, compared to $3.39 billion in the fourth quarter of 2017. Net loss was $40 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 due to non-recurring non-cash income tax expense of $727 million for U.S. tax reform discussed below, compared to net income of $1.36 billion in the year-ago quarter, which included a non-recurring non-cash income tax benefit of $526 million also related to U.S. tax reform.

Effective January 1, 2018, the Company adopted the new revenue recognition standard on a full retrospective basis. The adoption of this standard did not have a material impact on the Company's financial condition or net income. All 2017 financial results have been revised to conform to the current presentation.

On a GAAP (accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America) basis, operating income in the fourth quarter of 2018 decreased to $874 million, compared to $1.03 billion in the fourth quarter of 2017. The decrease in operating income was due to depreciation acceleration and asset impairments associated with our development projects in Macao. We also had softer Rolling Chip volume in Singapore, partially offset by stronger operating performance in Macao due to a 10% increase in revenues. Consolidated adjusted property EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure) of $1.27 billion decreased 4.7% in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to the year-ago quarter. On a hold-normalized basis, consolidated adjusted property EBITDA increased to $1.30 billion in the fourth quarter of 2018.

On a GAAP basis, net loss attributable to Las Vegas Sands in the fourth quarter of 2018 was $170 million, compared to net income attributable to Las Vegas Sands of $1.21 billion in the fourth quarter of 2017, while diluted loss per share in the fourth quarter of 2018 was $0.22, compared to diluted earnings per share of $1.53 in the prior-year quarter. The decrease was primarily a result of nonrecurring, non-cash income tax items due to the implementation of U.S. tax reform indicated above.

Adjusted net income attributable to Las Vegas Sands (a non-GAAP measure) was $598 million, or $0.77 per diluted share, compared to $700 million, or $0.88 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2017. Hold-normalized adjusted earnings per diluted share decreased 6.0% to $0.79.

On a GAAP basis, full year 2018 operating income increased 8.3% to $3.75 billion, compared to $3.46 billion in 2017. The increase in operating income was principally due to stronger operating performance in our Macao business due to a 14% increase in revenues. Net income attributable to Las Vegas Sands decreased 14.1% to $2.41 billion, or $3.07 per diluted share, in 2018, compared to $2.81 billion, or $3.55 per diluted share, in 2017. The decrease in net income attributable to Las Vegas Sands reflected increases in income tax expense, interest expense and loss on modification or early retirement of debt.

Sands China Ltd. Consolidated Financial Results

On a GAAP basis, total net revenues for SCL increased 9% to $2.25 billion in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to $2.06 billion in the fourth quarter of 2017. Net income for SCL decreased 11% to $465 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to $519 million in the fourth quarter of 2017.

On a GAAP basis, full year 2018 total net revenues for SCL increased 14% to $8.67 billion, compared to $7.59 billion in 2017. Net income for SCL increased 19% to $1.90 billion in 2018, compared to $1.60 billion in 2017.

Other Factors Affecting Earnings

Depreciation and amortization expense was $289 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to $258 million in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Interest expense, net of amounts capitalized, was $138 million for the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to $87 million in the prior-year quarter. Our weighted average borrowing cost in the fourth quarter of 2018 was approximately 4.5%, compared to 3.4% during the fourth quarter of 2017. The increase in net weighted average borrowing cost relates to the issuance of unsecured notes by SCL in the third quarter of 2018 and increases in interest rates globally. Our outstanding debt also increased in connection with the unsecured notes issued by SCL in the third quarter of 2018 and additional borrowings in the U.S. in the second quarter of 2018.

Our income tax expense for the fourth quarter of 2018 was $782 million, compared to a benefit of $429 million in the prior year quarter. The tax expense for the fourth quarter of 2018 is primarily due to nonrecurring non-cash expense of $727 million resulting from recently issued guidance by the Internal Revenue Service related to the international provision of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the "Act"). This guidance clarified the implementation of the Global Intangible Low-Taxed Income ("GILTI") and other provisions which impact the foreign tax credit utilization and required an increase of a valuation allowance related to our historical foreign tax credits. Our effective income tax rate for the fourth quarter of 2018 would have been 7.4% without the discrete expense associated with the Act.

The net income attributable to noncontrolling interests during the fourth quarter of 2018 decreased to $130 million and was principally related to SCL.

Balance Sheet Items

Unrestricted cash balances as of December 31, 2018 were $4.65 billion.

As of December 31, 2018, total debt outstanding, including the current portion, net of deferred financing costs and original issue discount and excluding capital leases, was $11.97 billion.

Capital Expenditures

Capital expenditures during the fourth quarter totaled $326 million, including construction, development and maintenance activities of $184 million in Macao, $70 million in Las Vegas, $66 million at Marina Bay Sands and $6 million at Sands Bethlehem.

Conference Call Information

The company will host a conference call to discuss the company's results on Wednesday, January 23, 2019 at 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time. Interested parties may listen to the conference call through a webcast available on the company's website at www.sands.com.

Las Vegas Sands Corp.
Fourth Quarter 2018 Results
Non-GAAP Measures

Within the company's fourth quarter and full year 2018 press release, the company makes reference to certain non-GAAP financial measures that supplement the company's consolidated financial information prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") including "adjusted net income," "adjusted earnings per diluted share," and "consolidated adjusted property EBITDA," which have directly comparable GAAP financial measures along with "adjusted property EBITDA margin," "hold-normalized adjusted property EBITDA," "hold-normalized adjusted property EBITDA margin," "hold-normalized adjusted net income," and "hold-normalized adjusted earnings per diluted share." The company believes these measures represent important internal measures of financial performance. Set forth in the financial schedules accompanying this release are reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. The non-GAAP financial measure disclosure by the company has limitations and should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, the financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. The definitions of our non-GAAP financial measures and the specific reasons why the company's management believes the presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information to investors regarding the company's financial condition, results of operations and cash flows are presented below.

The following non-GAAP financial measures are used by management, as well as industry analysts, to evaluate the company's operations and operating performance. These non-GAAP financial measures are presented so investors have the same financial data management uses in evaluating financial performance with the belief it will assist the investment community in properly assessing the underlying financial performance of the company on a year-over-year and a quarter sequential basis.

Adjusted net income, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, excludes certain non-recurring corporate expenses, pre-opening expense, development expense, gain or loss on disposal of assets, loss on modification or early retirement of debt and other income or expense, attributable to Las Vegas Sands, net of income tax and an adjustment for a nonrecurring non-cash benefit due to U.S. tax reform enacted in 2017. Adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per diluted share are presented as supplemental disclosures as management believes they are (1) each widely used measures of performance by industry analysts and investors and (2) a principal basis for valuation of Integrated Resort companies, as these non-GAAP measures are considered by many as alternative measures on which to base expectations for future results. These measures also form the basis of certain internal management performance expectations.

Consolidated adjusted property EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, is net income before stock-based compensation expense, corporate expense, pre-opening expense, development expense, depreciation and amortization, amortization of leasehold interests in land, gain or loss on disposal of assets, interest, other income or expense, gain or loss on modification or early retirement of debt and income taxes. Management utilizes consolidated adjusted property EBITDA to compare the operating profitability of its operations with those of its competitors, as well as a basis for determining certain incentive compensation. Integrated Resort companies have historically reported adjusted property EBITDA as a supplemental performance measure to GAAP financial measures. In order to view the operations of their casinos on a more stand-alone basis, Integrated Resort companies, including Las Vegas Sands, have historically excluded certain expenses that do not relate to the management of specific properties, such as pre-opening expense, development expense and corporate expense, from their adjusted property EBITDA calculations. Consolidated adjusted property EBITDA should not be interpreted as an alternative to income from operations (as an indicator of operating performance) or to cash flows from operations (as a measure of liquidity), in each case, as determined in accordance with GAAP. The company has significant uses of cash flow, including capital expenditures, dividend payments, interest payments, debt principal payments and income tax payments, which are not reflected in consolidated adjusted property EBITDA. Not all companies calculate adjusted property EBITDA in the same manner. As a result, consolidated adjusted property EBITDA as presented by Las Vegas Sands may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

Hold-normalized adjusted property EBITDA, a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure, that, in addition to the aforementioned reasons for the presentation of consolidated adjusted property EBITDA, is presented to adjust for the impact of certain variances in table games' win percentages, which can vary from period to period. Hold-normalized adjusted property EBITDA is based on applying a Rolling Chip win percentage of 3.15% to the Rolling Chip volume for the quarter if the actual win percentage is outside the expected range of 3.0% to 3.3% for our Macao properties, applying a Rolling Chip win percentage of 2.85% to the Rolling Chip volume for the quarter if the actual win percentage is outside the expected range of 2.7% to 3.0% for our Singapore property, and applying a win percentage of 22.0% for Baccarat and 20.0% for non-Baccarat games to the respective table games drops for the quarter if the actual win percentages are outside the expected ranges of 18.0% to 26.0% for Baccarat and 16.0% to 24.0% for non-Baccarat at our Las Vegas properties. No hold adjustments are made for Sands Bethlehem. We do not present adjustments for Non-Rolling Chip drop for our table games play at our Macao and Singapore properties, nor for slots at any of our properties. Hold-normalized adjusted property EBITDA is also adjusted for the estimated gaming taxes, commissions paid to third parties on the incremental win, bad debt expense, discounts and other incentives that would have been incurred when applying the win percentages noted above to the respective gaming volumes. The hold-normalized adjusted property EBITDA measure presents a consistent measure for evaluating the operating performance of our properties from period to period.

Hold-normalized adjusted net income and hold-normalized adjusted earnings per diluted share are additional supplemental non-GAAP financial measures that, in addition to the aforementioned reasons for the presentation of adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per diluted share, are presented to adjust for the impact of certain variances in table games' win percentages, which can vary from period to period.

The company may also present the above items on a constant currency basis. This information is a non-GAAP financial measure that is calculated by translating current quarter local currency amounts to U.S. dollars based on prior period exchange rates. These amounts are compared to the prior period to derive non-GAAP constant-currency growth/decline. Management considers non-GAAP constant-currency growth/decline to be a useful metric to investors and management as it allows a more direct comparison of current performance to historical performance.

The company also makes reference to adjusted property EBITDA margin and hold-normalized adjusted property EBITDA margin, which are calculated using the aforementioned non-GAAP financial measures.

Note:

The prior period presentation has been adjusted for the adoption of ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, and conformed to the current period presentation.

 

(1)

For Macao Operations and Marina Bay Sands, this represents the estimated incremental casino revenue related to Rolling Chip volume play that would have been earned or lost had the company's current period win percentage equaled 3.15% for Macao Operations and 2.85% for Marina Bay Sands. This calculation will only be applied if the current period win percentage is outside the expected range of 3.0% to 3.3% for Macao Operations and 2.7% to 3.0% for Marina Bay Sands.

 

For the Las Vegas Operating Properties, this represents the estimated incremental casino revenue related to all table games play that would have been earned or lost had the company's current period win percentage equaled 22.0% for Baccarat and 20.0% for non-Baccarat. This calculation will only be applied if the current period win percentages for Baccarat and non-Baccarat are outside the expected ranges of 18.0% to 26.0% and 16.0% to 24.0%, respectively.

 

For Sands Bethlehem, no adjustments have been made.

 

These amounts have been offset by the estimated commissions paid and discounts and other incentives rebated directly or indirectly to customers.

 

(2)

Represents the estimated incremental expenses (gaming taxes and bad debt expense) that would have been incurred or avoided on the incremental casino revenue calculated in (1) above.

Note:

The prior period presentation has been adjusted for the adoption of ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, and conformed to the current period presentation.

(1)

Adjustment reflects the impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act enacted in the U.S. in December 2017 (the "Act" or "tax reform") and related guidance issued to date on the valuation allowance related to certain of the company's tax attributes.

(2)

The income tax impact for each adjustment is derived by applying the effective tax rate, including current and deferred income tax expense, based upon the jurisdiction and the nature of the adjustment.
