Melco Crown Entertainment saw its revenue rise 22 percent to $1.15 billion in the third quarter of 2016, thanks to contributions from its new Studio City property in Macau as well as a strong performance by its City of Dreams Manila integrated resort. Ho attributed Melco Crown’s “many good results in 2016” to “the continuous support and dedication from all of our colleagues.”

“With the refined management structure, more efficient operations and the innovative, best-in-class hospitality offers in our three properties in Macau, I am confident 2017 will be another promising year for the company as well as for our colleagues,” Ho said in a statement.
