LAS VEGAS (AP) — Wynn Resorts says its first-quarter net income increased 12 percent as revenue from its growing operations in Macau offset a small decline at its Las Vegas casinos.
The casino operator reported Thursday that it earned $227 million, or $2.22 per share, for the period ending March 31. A year earlier it posted profit of $203 million, or $2 per share, during that period.
Excluding one-time items, earnings came to $2.32 per share, beating analysts' prediction of $2.06 per share.
Revenue rose 10 percent, to $1.51 billion from $1.38 billion. Wall Street predicted $1.49 billion, according to FactSet.
Wynn's stock is up 2.5 percent in aftermarket trading.
