GentingM 9M core net profit within forecast, TP reduced

KUALA LUMPUR: Genting Malaysia’s (GENM) nine months core net profit at 72% of full-year forecasts was within the market’s and CIMB Equities Research’s expectations as it projects a stronger 4Q.

It said on Monday the company was hit by a RM1,896m impairment for the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe promissory notes.

“Maintain Hold; TP falls from RM3.25 to RM2.92,” it said.

GENM’s 9M18 revenue was up 9.4% on-year at RM7,420mil, driven by strong domestic revenue growth, but it turned in a 9M18 net loss of RM843.7m.

The net loss was mainly due to a RM1,896m impairment on the group’s investment in the promissory notes issued by the Native American Mashpee tribe for the development of an integrated gaming resort in the US on a piece of tribal land.

However, CIMB Research said the 9M18 core net profit was up 57.7% on-year at RM1,148m, mainly due to higher VIP arrivals.

“What was also a major disappointment to us was that management did not provide any guidance at all on the 20th Century Fox World outdoor theme park (slated to open in mid-2019) following news the company sued Disney and 21st Century Fox for more than US$1bn (RM4.2bn).

“This is negative for the share price, at least in our view. However, the new indoor theme park is targeted to open in December,” it said.

The Malaysian domestic operations grew 8.3% on-year to RM4,821m, mainly due to higher gaming revenue. The VIP gaming market grew faster than the mass market.

9M18 VIP revenue was 44% of domestic gaming revenue compared to 39% in 9M17. Domestic gaming revenue was 65% of the group's total gaming revenue.

Its 3Q18 gaming VIP and mass market revenue was up 11% and 5% on-year, respectively.

CIMB Research said GENM’s visitor arrivals inched up 2% on-year in 3Q18, a disappointment compared to 1H18’s 21% on-year growth. On average, 72% of the visitor arrivals were day-trippers, in line with our expectations.

“Average room rates were only up 2% on-year in 3Q18 compared to 15% on-year in 1H18 while China visitor arrivals rose 33% on-year to 150,000 compared to China and Indonesia’s 46% on-year rise in 2Q18. The slower visitor growth could become a concern.

“We cut FY18-20F EPS by 1.6-12% to reflect likely slower tourist arrivals with the likely delay in the opening of the new theme park. Our TP falls from RM3.25 to RM2.92 as we input a 10% discount to RNAV to reflect possibly further provision in the near future.

“The stock remains a Hold. A re-rating catalyst is the opening of the new theme park in 2019 while a de-rating catalyst is the theme park failing to open in 2019. Long-term charts show strong support for the stock at RM2.85 and RM2.20,” CIMB Research said.

Star Wars attraction to open at Genting Highlands' new indoor theme park

BY AMIR YUSOF

The “Star Wars: Secrets of the empire” virtual reality experience allows visitors to put themselves in the shoes of rebel forces fighting the dark side.

The attraction, which is part of Resort World Genting’s new indoor theme park Skytropolis Funland, will be open to the public from Thursday (Dec 6).

It was built by The Void, a company which has developed virtual reality entertainment centres in New York’s Madame Tussauds and Anaheim’s Downtown Disney.

The Void will be the first in Asia and its key Star Wars feature is set to be the jewel in the crown.


Besides Star Wars, The Void in Genting is also set to feature experiences which are based on blockbuster film Ghostbusters and Walt Disney’s cartoon Wreck-it Ralph.

Each ticket for the rides costs RM130 (US$31.31) each.

While The Void opens on Thursday, Resort World Genting’s Skytropolis Funland theme park will open to the public on Saturday (Dec 8).

The park will feature new attractions such as Sky Towers, a drop tower attraction, Spin Crazy, a pendulum ride and Balloon Race, a swing ride.

Genting Highland’s famous roller coaster which was previously outdoors – Superman – will also now feature in Skytropolis Funland but it is expected to open only in the first quarter of 2019.

The attractions are all currently pay-per-ride and visitors will have to fork out RM15 for each one, but Resorts World Genting said it is looking to offer day-pass packages in the future.

The 20th Century Fox theme park – which was set to feature rides based on blockbusters such as Ice Age, Life of Pi and Night at the Museum - was slated to open in end-2019.

Genting's ratings unaffected despite termination of outdoor theme park, says RAM

It envisaged GenM’s net gearing ratio and net funds from operations debt cover (FFODC) to weaken in fiscal 2019, albeit still within its rating thresholds of a respective 0.25 and 0.40 times.

GenM had swiftly announced certain revisions to the benefits under its rewards programme, which will take effect on Jan 1, 2019.

“We expect GenM’s actual capex to be considerably lower than the earlier projected RM8.5bil for fiscal 2018–2020”.

Its RM2bil MTN Programme (2012/2032) and RM1.60bil MTN Programme (2009/2024) - issued by 100%-held subsidiaries Genting Capital Berhad and GB Services Bhd, respectively - are rated AAA(s)/Stable.

Genting Malaysia active, dips 1.95% on clarification about theme park ops

by Arjuna Chandran Shankar

KUALA LUMPUR (Dec 21): Genting Malaysia Bhd (GenM) fell 1.95% in active trade at mid-morning today following the group's clarification that it was considering various options for the theme park, with its opening date dependent on the final course of action taken by the group.

At the time of writing, GenM fell 6 sen to RM3.02 per share, with 10.99 million shares traded.

At its current price, GenM has slid 45.93% from its 2018 peak of RM5.59 on Jan 3.

The counter's last acceptable calling price was RM3.08, which was an increase of 8.8% on Dec 19 due to reports that the group would be opening its long-delayed theme park in early 2019.

GenM chairman and chief executive officer Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay was quoted as saying in Singapore's Business Times on Dec 15 that the theme park "remains very much part of our plans" and that despite the park's earlier projected opening in January, plans are "all in place".

Lim had said the theme park was "only a small part" of the Resorts World Genting Complex's expansion plans, with the complex situated on hills that lie between Selangor and Pahang, adding that revenue and visitor numbers had grown in tandem with the roll-out of the group's plans.

To recap, the group is suing Disney and Fox for the termination of the outdoor theme park in Genting Highlands for US$1 billion (RM4.18 billion), alleging that Fox had aborted the deal as Disney sought to avoid association with gaming operations that were incompatible with its family-friendly strategy, a claim that both Fox and Disney deny.

On a bourse filing dated Dec 20, the group said: "An outdoor theme park remains part of GenM's growth plans. The management of GenM is considering various options for the outdoor theme park. The opening date of the outdoor theme park is dependent on the options to be pursued by GenM."

Genting, GenM fall as Resorts World Las Vegas faces lawsuit

by Gigi Chua

KUALA LUMPUR (Dec 26): Shares in Genting Bhd and its subsidiary Genting Malaysia Bhd (GenM) fell in the morning session today after the US$4 billion (RM16.7 billion) Resorts World Las Vegas and resort project in Las Vegas was sued by Wynn Resorts Holdings for copying its building design.

At 12.30pm, Genting fell 2.9% or 18 sen to RM6.05 while GenM fell 3.3% or 10 sen to RM2.93.

According to the Las Vegas Sun, Wynn has filed a federal trademark infringement lawsuit alleging that Resorts World Las Vegas wants to mislead the public to believe its new 3,000-room project is affiliated with Wynn.

The lawsuit filed on Dec 21 includes photos of bronze glass and horizontal design elements on the curved facade of the Resorts World property, which Wynn said looks similar to copyrighted design of Wynn properties in Las Vegas and the Chinese enclave of Macau.

The sketches posted on Resorts World Las Vegas website on Aug 24 showed its tower stretching towards the Strip featuring a Chinese lantern hanging from the top. The exterior will also consist of smaller buildings designed in traditional Chinese architecture, an amphitheatre and a pool.

Resorts World Las Vegas is currently under construction on the Las Vegas Strip in Nevada and is planned to be completed in late 2020.

The Genting group has already been embroiled in a legal tussle of late, with GenM filling a lawsuit against Walt Disney Co (Disney) and Twenty-First Century Fox (Fox) for US$1 billion on Nov 27, for terminating an agreement to build a Fox World theme park in Genting Highlands.

Disney is in the midst of acquiring Fox for US$71.3 billion.

As concerns rise regarding its completion in early 2019, the group said in a Bursa Malaysia filing last Thursday (Dec 20): "The opening date of the outdoor theme park is dependent on the options to be pursued by Genting Malaysia."

Total Darkness in Theme Park

Valuation

Given the earnings downgrade, we cut GENM’s DCF valuation to RM3.70/share (from RM4.06/ share previously) based on unchanged discount rate of 13.0%.

We opine that near-term sentiment will be overtaken by investment fear of a “cheating fox”.

Valuation wise, we think the current price is a good entry level to position for long term
growth. As such, we upgrade GENM to Buy.
