The Londoner Macau – formerly Sands Cotai Central – saw revenue plummet 85.5% to $297m. The Parisian Macau, meanwhile, saw revenue drop 84.3% to $259m.

The Plaza Macau was Sands China’s most resilient resort, but revenue still dropped 69.8% to $265m. Sands Macau revenue was down 80.8% to $120m. Ferry and other operations revenue was down 84.6% to $21m.

After a net interest expense of $268m, Sands China’s pre-tax loss was $1.51bn, compared to a $2.03bn in 2019. After $16m in tax expenses, the operator’s loss was $1.52bn, which again compared to a $2.03bn 2019 profit.
