Mandarin Oriental International Limited - Q1 2023 Interim Management Statement

18 May 2023

Hamilton, Bermuda: 18 May 2023 – In a filing with the Bermuda Stock Exchange (“BSX”), Mandarin Oriental International Limited, today issues its Interim Management Statement for the first quarter of 2023. The full filing stated:

The Group recorded an underlying profit in the first quarter of 2023, driven by improved

performance from both the Group’s owned hotels and its management business. RevPAR

grew substantially in Asia compared to last year, as the region benefitted from the removal of

travel restrictions. As a result, the Group’s owned hotels saw a significantly improved

performance, particularly in Hong Kong, Tokyo, and Bangkok. In the rest of the world, our

hotels were also able to achieve a higher RevPAR compared to both last year and 2019, driven

by strong rates.


The first quarter saw progress on a number of hotel developments. In January, the Group

announced a new management contract for a luxury beach resort in Mallorca, Spain, scheduled

to open by the end of 2024. In February, after three years’ work, the Emirates Palace hotel in

Abu Dhabi was rebranded as Emirates Palace Mandarin Oriental, Abu Dhabi. In March,

Mandarin Oriental, Singapore, closed for a substantial renovation; it is expected to reopen in

September 2023.


As a result of improved trading conditions, the Group generated underlying earnings before

interest, tax, depreciation, and amortisation (‘EBITDA’) of US$30 million, a substantial

increase from the EBITDA loss of US$1 million in the first quarter of 2022. Owned hotels

reported an EBITDA of US$19 million, with almost all hotels delivering increased financial

performance. The management business saw significant growth and generated higher fees,

with hotels, particularly in Hong Kong and Mainland China, contributing to an EBITDA of

US$7 million. Unaudited underlying profit in the first quarter was US$3 million, much

improved from an underlying loss of US$26 million in 2022.


The Group’s redevelopment project in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong, formerly the site of The

Excelsior hotel, is ongoing, in line with our budget, and is expected to complete in early 2025.


Consolidated net debt as at 31st March 2023 reduced to US$311 million (US$376 million at

31st December 2022). The Group’s liquidity position remains robust, with US$453 million in

available committed debt facilities and US$306 million of cash reserves. Gearing was 6% of

adjusted shareholders’ funds.


On 2nd May 2023, the Company announced that Laurent Kleitman would replace James Riley

as Group Chief Executive of Mandarin Oriental International Limited with effect from 1st

September 2023.


Mandarin Oriental International Limited is incorporated in Bermuda and has a primary listing

in the standard segment of the London Stock Exchange, with secondary listings in Bermuda

and Singapore. Mandarin Oriental is a member of the Jardine Matheson Group.
