Sands China declares HK$0.99 interim dividend

Hong Kong-listed Sands China has declared an interim dividend of HK$0.99 per share payable to shareholders of the company.

According to a filing from the company to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, shareholders eligible for the dividend are those whose name appears on the register on February 5, 2020. 

It is expected the dividend will be paid on Friday, February 21, 2020. 

Gross gaming revenue in Macau has continued to be driven by a growing mass market. Last year, Sands China posted a nine percent increase in net profit in the first half of the year, benefiting mostly from mass growth and ramp-up at The Parisian.
