SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This quarterly report contains forward-looking statements that relate to future events, including our future operating results and conditions, our prospects and our future financial performance and condition, all of which are largely based on our current expectations and projections. Known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors may cause our actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performances or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. We operate in a heavily regulated and evolving industry, and have a highly leveraged business model. Moreover, we operate in Macau’s gaming sector, a market with intense competition, and therefore new risk factors may emerge from time to time. It is not possible for our management to predict all risk factors, nor can we assess the impact of these factors on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in any forward-looking statement. Forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties, and a number of factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement. These factors include, but are not limited to, (i) the global pandemic of COVID-19, caused by a novel strain of the coronavirus, and the continued impact of its consequences on our business, our industry and the global economy, (ii) growth of the gaming market and visitations in Macau, (iii) capital and credit market volatility, (iv) local and global economic conditions, (v) our anticipated growth strategies, (vi) gaming authority and other governmental approvals and regulations, and (vii) our future business development, results of operations and financial condition. In some cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by words or phrases such as “may,” “will,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “target,” “aim,” “estimate,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “potential,” “continue,” “is/are likely to” or other similar expressions.

The forward-looking statements made in this quarterly report relate only to events or information as of the date on which the statements are made in this quarterly report. Except as required by law, we undertake no obligation to update or revise publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, after the date on which the statements are made or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events. You should read this quarterly report with the understanding that our actual future results may be materially different from what we expect.

EXCHANGE RATE INFORMATION

The majority of our current revenues are denominated in H.K. dollars, while our current expenses are denominated predominantly in Patacas and H.K. dollars, and in connection with a portion of our indebtedness and certain expenses, in U.S. dollars. The non-financial pages of this quarterly report include all translations from H.K. dollars to U.S. dollars and from U.S. dollars to H.K. dollars at a rate of HK$7.7855 to US$1.00, unless otherwise noted.

The H.K. dollar is freely convertible into other currencies (including the U.S. dollar). Since October 17, 1983, the H.K. dollar has been officially linked to the U.S. dollar at the rate of HK$7.80 to US$1.00. The market exchange rate has not deviated materially from the level of HK$7.80 to US$1.00 since the peg was first established. However, in May 2005, the Hong Kong Monetary Authority broadened the trading band from the original rate of HK$7.80 per U.S. dollar to a rate range of HK$7.75 to HK$7.85 per U.S. dollar. The Hong Kong government has stated its intention to maintain the link at that rate, and, acting through the Hong Kong Monetary Authority, has a number of means by which it may act to maintain exchange rate stability. However, no assurance can be given that the Hong Kong government will maintain the link at HK$7.75 to HK$7.85 per U.S. dollar or at all.

The noon buying rate on September 30, 2021 in New York City for cable transfers in H.K. dollars for U.S. dollars, provided in the H.10 weekly statistical release of the Federal Reserve Board of the United States as certified for customs purposes by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, was HK$7.7850 to US$1.00. On November 19, 2021, the noon buying rate was HK$7.7915 to US$1.00. We make no representation that any H.K. dollar or U.S. dollar amounts could have been, or could be, converted into U.S. dollars or H.K. dollars, as the case may be, at any particular rate or at all.

The Pataca is pegged to the H.K. dollar at a rate of HK$1.00 = MOP1.03. All translations from Pataca to U.S. dollar in the non-financial pages of this quarterly report were made at the exchange rate of MOP8.0191 = US$1.00. The Federal Reserve Bank of New York does not certify for customs purposes a noon buying rate for cable transfers in Pataca.

FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

The following discussion should be read in connection with our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements included elsewhere in this quarterly report. Our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with our audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2020. The historical results are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations to be expected in the future. Certain statements in this “Financial Condition and Results of Operations” are forward-looking statements.

Summary of Financial Results

For the third quarter of 2021, our total operating revenues were US$378.8 million, an increase of 127.8% from US$166.3 million of total operating revenues for the third quarter of 2020. The increase in total operating revenues was primarily attributable to an improved performance at City of Dreams, as well as increased casino revenues generated from the operations of Studio City Casino by our subsidiary, Melco Resorts Macau, the gaming subconcessionaire. Such increases resulted from a year-over-year increase in inbound tourism in the third quarter of 2021. Net income/loss from Studio City Casino gaming operations are reimbursed to/from Studio City Entertainment pursuant to the Services and Right to Use Arrangements. Such reimbursement is included in general and administrative expenses.

Net loss for the third quarter of 2021 was US$139.9 million, compared to net loss of US$203.4 million for the third quarter of 2020. The decrease in net loss was primarily attributable to the improved performance at City of Dreams mentioned above, partially offset by higher interest expenses, net of amounts capitalized, and net foreign exchange losses in the third quarter of 2021.

The following summarizes the results of our operations:

For the quarter ended September 30, 2021, total operating revenues at City of Dreams were US$268.2 million, compared to US$105.1 million in the third quarter of 2020.

Altira Macau Third Quarter Results

Starting in the third quarter of 2021, Altira Macau has strategically repositioned to cater to the premium mass segment and has shut down VIP operations. In the third quarter of 2020, rolling chip volume was US$335.8 million and the rolling chip win rate was 3.06%. The expected rolling chip win rate range is 2.85% - 3.15%.

In the mass market table games segment, drop was US$28.7 million in the third quarter of 2021, versus US$15.7 million in the third quarter of 2020. The mass market table games hold percentage was 25.8% in the third quarter of 2021, compared with 16.9% in the third quarter of 2020.

Mocha Clubs Third Quarter Results

Total operating revenues from Mocha Clubs were US$22.2 million in the third quarter of 2021, compared to US$11.3 million in the third quarter of 2020.

Gaming machine handle for the third quarter of 2021 was US$491.3 million, compared with US$279.6 million in the third quarter of 2020. The gaming machine win rate was 4.5% in the third quarter of 2021, versus 4.0% in the third quarter of 2020.

Other Factors Affecting Third Quarter Earnings

Total net non-operating expenses for the third quarter of 2021 were US$71.1 million, which mainly included interest expenses of US$58.7 million, net of amounts capitalized, and net foreign exchange losses of US$9.7 million, compared to total net non-operating expenses of US$43.8 million for the third quarter of 2020, which mainly included interest expenses of US$51.3 million, net of amounts capitalized, partially offset by net foreign exchange gains of US$9.2 million.

Nine Months’ Results

For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, our total operating revenues were US$1.38 billion, an increase of 28.4% from US$1.07 billion for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The increase in total operating revenues was primarily due to an improved performance at City of Dreams, as well as increased casino revenues generated from the operations of Studio City Casino by our subsidiary, Melco Resorts Macau, the gaming subconcessionaire, as a result of a year-over-year increase in inbound tourism in the nine months ended September 30, 2021. Such increase was partially offset by softer performance in the rolling chip segment at Altira Macau, which has strategically repositioned to cater to the premium mass segment and has shut down VIP operations starting in the third quarter of 2021.

Table of Contents

Net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was US$392.8 million, compared to net loss of US$570.2 million in the comparable period of 2020. The reduction in net loss was primarily attributable to the improved performance at City of Dreams mentioned above, partially offset by softer performance in Altira Macau and higher interest expenses, net of amounts capitalized, in the nine months ended September 30, 2021.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

We have relied and intend to rely on cash generated from our operations and debt and equity financings to meet our financing needs and repay our indebtedness, as the case may be. We expect to have significant capital expenditures in the future as we continue to develop our properties. Any other future developments may be subject to further financing and a number of other factors, many of which are beyond our control.

As of September 30, 2021, we held cash and cash equivalents of US$624.5 million and restricted cash of US$0.3 million. Further, HK$14.85 billion (equivalent to approximately US$1.91 billion) of the revolving credit facility under the 2020 Credit Facilities and HK$1.0 million (equivalent to approximately US$0.1 million) of the revolving credit facility under the 2015 Credit Facilities were available for future drawdown, subject to satisfaction of certain conditions precedent.

Operating Activities

Operating cash flows are generally affected by changes in operating income and accounts receivable related to VIP table games play and hotel operations conducted on a cash and credit basis and the remainder of the business, including mass market table games play, gaming machine play, food and beverage, and entertainment that are conducted primarily on a cash basis.

Net cash used in operating activities was US$95.0 million for the third quarter of 2021, compared to net cash used in operating activities of US$162.9 million for the third quarter of 2020. Net cash used in operating activities was US$201.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, compared to net cash used in operating activities of US$748.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. Both changes were primarily due to the improved performance as described in the foregoing section.

Investing Activities

Net cash provided by investing activities was US$0.6 million for the third quarter of 2021, compared to net cash used in investing activities of US$165.9 million for the third quarter of 2020. The change was primarily due to the decrease in placement of a bank deposit with an original maturity over three months, decrease in repayments of funds to affiliated companies and lower payments for acquisition of property and equipment during the third quarter of 2021.

Table of Contents

Net cash provided by investing activities of US$0.6 million for the third quarter of 2021 mainly included the withdrawal of a bank deposit with an original maturity over three months of US$20.0 million, offset by payments for acquisition of property and equipment of US$19.5 million.

Net cash used in investing activities of US$165.9 million for the third quarter of 2020 mainly included the placement of a bank deposit with an original maturity over three months of US$150.0 million and payments for acquisition of property and equipment of US$40.2 million, partially offset by repayments of funds to affiliated companies of US$24.4 million.

Our total payments for acquisition of property and equipment for the third quarter of 2021 were US$19.5 million, compared to US$40.2 million for the third quarter of 2020. Such expenditures for both periods were mainly associated with our development projects as well as enhancements to our integrated resort offerings.

Net cash used in investing activities was US$74.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, compared to net cash provided by investing activities of US$121.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The change was primarily due to the decrease in placement of a bank deposit with an original maturity over three months, decrease in repayments of funds to affiliated companies and lower payments for acquisition of property and equipment in the nine months ended September 30, 2021.

Net cash used in investing activities of US$74.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 mainly included payments for acquisition of property and equipment of US$71.9 million.

Net cash provided by investing activities of US$121.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 mainly included repayments of funds to affiliated companies of US$391.6 million, partially offset by placement of a bank deposit with an original maturity over three months of US$150.0 million and payments for acquisition of property and equipment of US$120.3 million.

Our total payments for acquisition of property and equipment for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 were US$71.9 million, compared to US$120.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. Such expenditures for both periods were mainly associated with our development projects as well as enhancements to our integrated resort offerings.

Financing Activities

Net cash provided by financing activities amounted to US$0.5 million for the third quarter of 2021, which primarily represented funds from an affiliated company.

Net cash provided by financing activities amounted to US$464.2 million for the third quarter of 2020, which primarily represented the proceeds from the issuance of the First 2028 Senior Notes in aggregate principal amount of US$500.0 million in July 2020, the issuance of the Additional 2028 Senior Notes of US$353.5 million in August 2020, which priced at 101.0% of the principal amount, and drawdown of the 2020 Credit Facilities of US$250.0 million in September 2020, partially offset by the repayment of the 2020 Credit Facilities of US$352.2 million and dividend payment of US$280.0 million.

Net cash provided by financing activities amounted to US$9.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, which primarily represented the proceeds from the issuance of the Additional 2029 Senior Notes of US$258.1 million, which priced at 103.250% of the principal amount, partially offset by the repayment of the outstanding revolving credit facility under the 2020 Credit Facility of US$249.9 million.

Net cash provided by financing activities amounted to US$775.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, which primarily represented the proceeds from the issuance of the First 2028 Senior Notes in aggregate principal amount of US$500.0 million in July 2020, the issuance of the Additional 2028 Senior Notes of US$353.5 million in August 2020, which priced at 101.0% of the principal amount, the drawdown of the 2020 Credit Facilities of US$602.2 million and the drawdown of the revolving credit facility under the 2015 Credit Facilities of US$251.5 million, partially offset by the repayment of all outstanding loan amounts under the 2015 Credit Facilities of US$252.6 million, other than HK$1.0 million (equivalent to approximately US$0.1 million) which remained outstanding under the term loan facility, the repayment of the 2020 Credit Facilities of US$352.2 million, dividend payment of US$280.0 million as well as the payments of deferred financing costs mainly arisen from the refinancing of the 2015 Credit Facilities with the 2020 Credit Facilities of US$55.9 million.

There was no change in our gross indebtedness as of September 30, 2021 compared to June 30, 2021.

On November 5, 2021, MCO Nominee One received confirmation that the majority of lenders of the 2020 Credit Facilities have consented and agreed to a waiver extension of the following financial condition covenants contained in the revolving credit facility under the 2020 Credit Facilities (the “Facility Agreement”): (i) meet or exceed the interest cover ratio (ratio of consolidated EBITDA to consolidated net finance charges as such terms are defined in the Facility Agreement) of 2.50 to 1.00; (ii) not exceed the senior leverage ratio (ratio of consolidated total debt to consolidated EBITDA as such terms are defined in the Facility Agreement) of 3.50 to 1.00; and (iii) not exceed the total leverage ratio (ratio of consolidated total debt to consolidated EBITDA as such terms are defined in the Facility Agreement) of 4.50 to 1.00, in each case in respect of the relevant periods ending on the following applicable test dates: (a) March 31, 2022; (b) June 30, 2022; (c) September 30, 2022; and (d) December 31, 2022. MCO Nominee One has paid a customary fee to all consenting lenders in relation to such consent and such consent has become effective upon receipt of the consent fee by the facility agent of the lenders to the 2020 Credit Facilities.

Recent Developments

COVID-19 outbreaks continue to have a material effect on our operations, financial position, and future prospects in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Our operations have been impacted by on-and-off travel restrictions and quarantine requirements as imposed by the governments of Macau, Hong Kong, and China in response to isolated cases. The appearance of COVID-19 cases in early August 2021 led to city-wide mandatory testing, mandatory closure of most entertainment and leisure venues (casinos and gaming areas excluded), and strict travel restrictions and requirements being implemented to enter and exit Macau. Similarly in late September 2021, the identification of additional COVID-19 cases again led to a repeat of testing, closure, and travel restrictions, which led to reduced turnout for October Golden Week holiday. Since October 19, 2021, authorities have eased pandemic prevention measures such that travelers no longer require a 14-day quarantine on arrival in Zhuhai, and the validity of negative nucleic acid tests were extended from 24 hours to 48 hours or seven days. As a result, our visitation has been gradually recovering.

The pace of recovery from COVID-19 will depend on future events, including duration of travel and visa restrictions, the pace of vaccination progress, development of new medicine for COVID-19, the impact of potentially higher unemployment rates, declines in income levels, and loss of personal wealth resulting from the COVID-19 outbreak affecting discretionary spending and travel, all of which remain highly uncertain.

Gaming is a highly regulated industry in Macau and is subject to various laws and regulations. These laws and regulations are complex and there are limited precedents on the interpretation and enforcement of these laws and regulations. Changes in laws and regulations, and the interpretation and enforcement of such laws and regulations, may result in increased risks for operations on our properties. For example, in November 2021, the Court of Final Appeal in Macau issued a final unappealable decision that a gaming operator is jointly liable with a gaming promoter for the refund of funds deposited with such gaming promoter at a casino and the Macau authorities arrested executives from a gaming promoter for alleged illegal overseas gaming related activities.
