Galaxy Entertainment Group Q2 & Interim Results 2023
HONG KONG, Aug. 17, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Galaxy Entertainment Group (“GEG”, “Company” or the “Group”) (HKEx stock code: 27) today reported results for the three-month and six-month periods ended 30 June 2023. (All amounts are expressed in Hong Kong dollars unless otherwise stated)
Dr. Lui Che Woo, Chairman of GEG said: “I would like to take this opportunity to update you on GEG’s most recent activities and financial results for the second quarter and half year of 2023. During the period Macau continued its business recovery and the Group’s primary focus was on operational execution, recruitment and project development. We believe that non-gaming is the future of Macau to drive a longer staying and more diverse visitor base which aligns with Macau Government’s vision of building Macau into a World Center of Tourism and Leisure. Our investment into world-class, non-gaming facilities such as the Galaxy International Convention Center (“GICC”) and the Galaxy Arena supports this vision. Our vote of confidence in Macau is demonstrated by the fact that GEG is the first Macau concessionaire to resume dividends and return capital to shareholders after the border reopened.
