MGM Resorts International has posted a net income of $243.5m for the second quarter (Q2) of 2023, down 85% compared with $1.6bn a year ago.

For the quarter that ended 30 June 2023, consolidated net revenues surged 21% to $3.94m from $3.26m a year ago.

This increase in revenues was mainly due to the removal of pandemic-related entry restrictions in Macau, the company said.

MGM Resorts’ operating income totalled $371m which represents a decline of 84.4% from $2.38bn in the prior year quarter.

The company said its previous year’s operating income was higher due to a $2.38bn gain related to the sale of MGM Growth Properties to VICI Properties, as well as a rise in rent expenses of VICI in April 2022 and the Cosmopolitan leases in May 2022.

The net income attributable to MGM Resorts was $201m as against $1.8bn last year. It was impacted by the items affecting operating income.
