Macau legacy gaming concessionary SJM Holdings Ltd SJM reported FY22 financial results representing a loss of HK$7.8 billion (EUR 941.3 million) in 2022.

The loss was attributed to a 37.7% drop in game revenue due to multiple forced closures and significant cost of damage to property costs and closures.

Revenue fell to HK$6.46 billion (EUR 779.4 million), including a 64.2% drop in VIP gross gaming revenue (GGR) to HK$486 million (EUR 58.7 million), according to the report. The report also states that the mass market GGR fell 34.5% to HK$5.55 billion (EUR 669.5 million) and the slot GGR fell 22.5% to HK$416 million (EUR 50 million).

This resulted in an adjusted EBITDA loss of HK$3.1 billion (EUR 374 million) in 2022 from a loss of HK$1.58 billion (EUR 193 million) reported in 2021.

In a statement released with the results, SJM Holdings Chairman Daisy Ho said:

“2022 is also a milestone year, as we successfully tendered for a 10-year concession. With unwavering confidence in the future of Macau, we have committed to a MOP$14.0 billion (€1.68 billion) investment blueprint, out of which MOP$12 billion (€1.44 billion) has been earmarked for expanding international tourism and non-gaming tourism elements.
