Bloomberry sustains quarterly rebound

Bloomberry Resorts Corp. (Bloomberry), subsidiaries of which own and operate Solaire Resort & Casino (Solaire) and Jeju Sun Hotel & Casino (Jeju Sun), reported favorable unaudited consolidated financial results for the three and six months ended 30 June 2022.

“Our performance in the second quarter indicates a sustained recovery in all segments of our Philippine operations. Strong demand from the domestic mass market is pushing revenues closer to pre-pandemic levels and spurring the continued improvement of earning before income tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) and net income,” Bloomberry chairperson and CEO Enrique K. Razon Jr. said.

“Absent the emergence of new Covid-19 variants that could disrupt our gains, we see the scope for further recovery as regional travel starts to pick up in the coming months. In the meantime, we will grow our market leadership by continuing to operate Solaire at the highest levels of service and health security.”
