HONG KONG–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Galaxy Entertainment Group (“GEG”, “Company” or the “Group”) (HKEx stock code: 27) today reported results for the three months and twelve months periods ended 31 December 2019. (All amounts are expressed in HKD unless otherwise stated)

LETTER FROM THE CHAIRMAN OF GALAXY ENTERTAINMENT GROUP

Fellow shareholders I wish to share with you my personal concern as a result of the outbreak of the coronavirus. As you are aware in late December 2019, the coronavirus was confirmed and many people have been impacted at different levels. I wish to express my heartfelt sympathy to all those affected and to their family and friends.

GEG is committed to the well-being and safety of all our guests and team members and to maintain high levels of hygiene. In light of the pneumonia outbreak, we have been working closely with the Macau Government and the relevant departments. We have adopted and supported all protective measures laid out by the Macau Government. From midnight 5 February 2020, the Macau Government instructed that all gaming premises suspend casino operations for 15 days, subsequently this suspension was lifted on Thursday, 20th February. In addition, we also reaccelerated work on our construction projects in Cotai. We acknowledge the closure may bring challenges to the industry and Macau’s economy, but GEG fully supports the government’s decision and believes that it is critical for society to unite. GEG has taken a wide range of protective measures against the coronavirus and we are working together to contain the spread of the virus.

GEG has donated MOP20 million through the Galaxy Entertainment Group Foundation to Hubei Province in order to help the region fight against the pneumonia outbreak and assist in relief efforts. The donation was made under the coordination of the Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in the Macau SAR. We have also made a donation of MOP5 million to support the prevention initiatives in the Macau community. GEG also donated one million protective face masks to the Macau Government, Zhuhai City Government and Hengqin New Area Government in support of their prevention efforts.

It is times like this that the entire community needs to work together to overcome these challenges. We have faced similar challenges in the past, and we have overcome these previous challenges. I am confident that in time we will overcome the current challenge.

I would like to personally thank all of the related government departments and officials, emergency and medical personnel who have worked tirelessly to assist the community in this challenging time. I would also like to thank the GEG team members for their assistance during this period.

Thank you!

Dr. Lui Che Woo

Macau Market Overview

Investor sentiment throughout 2019 experienced periods of fluctuation. This was a result of a number of geo-political and economic issues such as Sino-US trade tensions, a slowing world economy, introduction of the VIP smoking ban, RMB fluctuation, continuing competition from regional markets and disruption in Hong Kong. GGR for the full year 2019 was $283.9 billion, down 3% year-on-year. GGR in Q4 2019 was $70.1 billion, down 8% year-on-year and up 2% quarter-on-quarter.

In 2019, visitor arrivals to Macau were 39.4 million, up 10% year-on-year, in which visitors from Mainland China accounted for 71% of all visitor arrivals. Visitors from Greater Bay Area grew 26% year-on-year. Overnight visitors accounted for 47% of total visitation. The average length of stay for overnight visitors remained at 2.2 days. Thanks to the further diversification of tourism product offerings in Macau, we also noticed a trend of changing visitor mix from Mainland China to Macau with more family oriented and younger visitors, according to data released by Ctrip.
