While Wynn’s US-facing operations reported a strong Q2, 2022, this was not the case for its Macau operations. For the three months until June 30, 2022, Wynn Macau reported operating revenue of $58.6 million, down $125.4 million from the $184.0 million reported for the same period the prior year.

He pointed out that the company remains “confident that the market will benefit from the return of visitation over time.”
