Genting Singapore - Lucky Streak Normalised But Fundamentals Improving

  • Genting Singapore (SGX:G13)'s 1Q23 EBITDA was down 25% q-o-q but it was largely due to a normalised VIP win rate. More importantly, 1Q23 gaming operations grew q-o-q thanks to the nascent return of Chinese gamblers.

  • We trim FY23E core EPS by 4%, maintain FY24E and FY25E core EPS and maintain our S$1.18 DCF-based target price for Genting Singapore.

Results largely within our expectations

  • Although Genting Singapore's 1Q23 EBITDA of S$191.7m and 1Q23 core net profit of S$131.2m accounted for 16% and 17% of our full-year estimates, respectively, we rate them as within our expectations. Non-gaming revenue is seasonally weakest in the 1Q, compressing margins. We also expect gaming operations to ramp up as the year progresses on the return of Chinese gamblers.

Gaming operating metrics encouraging, we opine

  • 1Q23 EBITDA was 25% lower q-o-q largely due to VIP win rate normalising from 3.9% in 4Q22 to 2.8% in 1Q23.
  • Studying the gaming statistics more closely, we estimate that Genting Singapore's 1Q23 VIP volume was up 18% q-o-q (1Q23 VIP volume market share: 40%, 4Q22 VIP volume market share: 35%) while 1Q23 mass market gross gaming revenue grew 11% q-o-q.
  • We gather that the nascent return of Chinese gamblers since 8 Jan 2023 had a lot to do with the q-o-q growth.

Earnings outlook still positive, in our view
