MGM looks to diversify operations following difficult 2020
Of its $5.16bn in revenue, MGM made the majority – $2.87bn – from casino operations, though this figure represented a 54.9% year-on-year decline.
Rooms brought in $830.4m, down 65.3%, while food and beverage revenue was down 67.6% to $696.0m and entertainment, retail and other revenue dropped 64.9% to $519.0m.
MGM made a further $244.9m in reimbursed costs, 43.9% less than in 2019.
The operator’s Las Vegas Strip resorts continued to be its main source of revenue, despite the properties’ contribution falling 61.5% to $2.25bn.
Its regional US operations were much more resilient, but revenue still fell 44.6% to $1.97bn.
MGM China saw the steepest drop in revenue amid particularly strict travel restrictions, with revenue down 77.4%, roughly in line with the overall decline in the Macau gaming market in 2020.
