Genting Singapore - Earlier Recovery But Return To Pre-COVID-19 Levels Unlikely

  • With borders reopening earlier than expected, we raise our FY22E/FY23E earnings forecast for Genting Singapore (SGX:G13) by 163%/123%. Yet, our FY24E earnings are barely changed (-2%) as we doubt gaming operations will recover to 100% of pre-COVID-19 levels.
  • We have also introduced an expanded ESG tear sheet for Genting Singapore and assigned it an above average overall score of 80, based on its aggregated quantitative/qualitative/target-based metrics.



South East Asia has reopened for travel…

  • As Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia reopened their borders (Singapore & Malaysia: 1 Apr 2022, Indonesia: 22 Mar 2022) coupled with Singapore axing pre-and post-arrival testing on 26 Apr 2022, 2/3 to 3/4 of Singapore’s FY19A gaming market has returned.
  • Our channel checks note a discernible rise in tourists in Singapore since. Thus, we bring forward our forecast that Resorts World Sentosa (RWS)’s VIP volume will recover to 83% of FY19A levels to mid-FY22E from FY24E and RWS’ mass market GGR will recover to 92% of FY19A levels to FY23E from FY24E. These raise our FY22E/FY23E earnings forecast for Genting Singapore by 163%/123%.


… but China has changed the Asian gaming landscape

  • Yet, our FY24E earnings are barely changed (-2%). We doubt Singapore and RWS’ VIP volume will recover to 100% of FY19A levels due to China outlawing cross-border gambling punishable by ≤ 10 years’ imprisonment from Mar 2021.
  • We also doubt that Singapore and RWS’ mass market GGR will recover to 100% of FY19A levels as Macanese, Philippine and Cambodian integrated resorts (IR) negatively impacted by the above will try to draw premium mass gamblers that frequent Singapore IRs to compensate (link).
