MANDARIN ORIENTAL INTERNATIONAL LIMITED

HALF-YEARLY RESULTS FOR THE SIX MONTHSED 30TH JUNE 2021

OVERVIEW

Operating conditions generally improved towards the end of the first half, with all hotels under operation open in the second quarter. During the same period in the prior year, almost all hotels were effectively closed. Performance did, however, vary by market, depending mostly upon vaccination roll-out progress and the impact of government actions to curtail the spread of the virus. In most markets, the customer base was largely domestic and leisure-orientated.

Combined total revenue of hotels under management increased by 38% in the first half of 2021 compared to the equivalent period in 2020.

Government financial support in some markets and the Group's ongoing cost containment measures continued to benefit results.

FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE

Underlying losses before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation ('EBITDA') for the first half of 2021 were US$17 million, a 66% improvement compared to EBITDA losses o f US$50 million in the first half of 2020. Results benefited from an increase in business levels in certain markets, continued cost control measures and government financial support.

The Group's losses were entirely attributable to its portfolio of owned hotels. The management business was broadly breakeven in the period, due to increased management fees and lower operating costs.

Underlying losses for the period were US$67 million, compared to US$102 million for the first half of 2020.

Non-trading items comprised a 3%, or US$89 million, decrease in the valuation of the Causeway Bay site under development as a result of market reductions in property values. Total losses attributable to shareholders were US$156 million in the first half, compared to US$436 million in the same period in 2020.

At 30th June 2021, net debt was US$590 million compared to US$506 million at the end of 2020, with the increase primarily due to investments made to develop the Causeway Bay site and increase the size of the Munich hotel. The Group remains well funded, with headroom of US$441 million in its available cash and committed facilities. The average tenor of the Group's debt facilities at 30th June 2021 was 2.6 years and gearing as a percentage of adjusted shareholders' funds was 12%, taking into account the market value of the Group's properties.

No interim dividend will be paid in respect of 2021 first half results.

HOTEL PERFORMANCE

Occupancy levels varied significantly between hotels. In Asia, Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong delivered positive EBITDA in the first half of 2021, albeit still well below 2019 levels, compared to a loss in the first half of 2020. Demand in the Chinese mainland remained strong. Trading conditions in Southeast Asia were exceedingly difficult, with borders remaining effectively closed and tight lockdown restrictions in some cities preventing food and beverage and spa facilities from operating. In much of Europe, the Middle East and America, COVID-19 restrictions slowly eased, allowing occupancy levels to start to recover.

NEW DEVELOPMENTS

Mandarin Oriental Ritz, Madrid opened in April after an extensive restoration and is expected to become a flagship property for the brand.

The Group also assumed management of the Al Faisaliah hotel in Riyadh with effect from March and this property will be rebranded as Mandarin Oriental Al Faisaliah, Riyadh in 2022 following its renovation. Two new management contracts were announced in the first half of the year: a resort on the beach in Da Nang, Vietnam and a city property in Hangzhou, China. Mandarin Oriental Bosphorus, Istanbul will open in August 2021 and Mandarin Oriental, Shenzhen is expected to open towards the end of the year.

PEOPLE

The last six months have continued to be a difficult period for the hospitality industry and I would like to thank all Mandarin Oriental colleagues for their continued dedication and loyalty.

James Watkins retired from the Board following today's Board meeting. On 20th May 2021, it was announced that Craig Beattie would step down from the Board on 31st August 2021. The Board would like to record its gratitude to both of them for their significant contribution to the Group. As announced on 20th May 2021, Matthew Bishop will be appointed as a Director and Chief Financial Officer of the Company with effect from 1st September 2021.

OUTLOOK

While trading conditions remain difficult, business volumes have begun to improve in markets where vaccination programmes are being implemented effectively, particularly in the second quarter, leading to a reduction in underlying losses. The Group's development pipeline remains robust, and the restored Mandarin Oriental Ritz, Madrid, opened to critical acclaim. A return to profitability by the Group will be dependent on the removal of barriers to international travel, particularly in Asia.

 Notes to Condensed Financial Statements 
 
 
   1.    ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND BASIS OF PREPARATION 

(a) Going Concern

The Group's operations and financial performance were severely impacted by the unprecedented decline in both international and domestic travel since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Prior to the pandemic the Group had significant headroom in its committed debt facilities and cash balances available to finance operating losses, which was increased with new debt facilities in February 2021.

Operating conditions generally improved towards the end of the first half of 2021, with all 34 hotels open in the second quarter. In the first half of 2021, the Group incurred total cash outflow from operating activities of US$23 million, a significant improvement from the same period in 2020.

A return of profitability by the Group will be dependent on the continued successful roll-out of vaccination programmes and removal of barriers to travel.

The Group's balance sheet is underpinned by equity interests in a number of prime hotel properties which are carried on the Group's balance sheet at historical cost less depreciation. Taking into account the market value of the Group's property interests, the adjusted shareholders' funds were US$5.0 billion at 30th June 2021.

At 30th June 2021, the Group had total liquidity of US$441 million, comprising US$303 million of undrawn committed facilities and US$138 million of cash balances. The Group's facilities are not subject to any cash flow covenants and had an average remaining tenor of 2.6 years. This robust liquidity position enables the Group to sustain a prolonged downturn in the hospitality industry should that eventuate as well as meet its capital commitments. Overall, the Group's balance sheet position remains strong.

In adopting the going concern basis for preparing the condensed financial statements, the Directors have considered a stress-test cash flow forecast which assumes the majority of the Group's hotels are closed as a consequence of government restrictions for a period of 12 months from the date of approval of the condensed financial statements.

Having considered the outcome of the stress-test cash flow forecast, the Directors are of the opinion that the Group has sufficient financial resources to continue operating for a period of at least 12 months from the date of approval of the condensed financial statements. Accordingly, the condensed financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis.

(b) Basis of preparation

The condensed financial statements have been prepared in accordance with IAS 34 'Interim Financial Reporting' and on a going concern basis. The condensed financial statements have not been audited or reviewed by the Group's auditors pursuant to the UK Auditing Practices Board guidance on the review of interim financial information.

There are no changes to the accounting policies as described in the 2020 annual financial statements and the Group has not early adopted any standard or amendments that have been issued but not yet effective, except as mentioned below:

Interest Rate Benchmark Reform - Phase 2: Amendment to IFRS 9, IAS 39, IFRS 7, IFRS 4 and IFRS 16 (effective 1st January 2021)

The amendments provide practical expedient from certain requirements under the IFRSs as a result of the reform which affect the measurement of financial assets, financial liabilities and lease liabilities, and a number of reliefs for hedging relationships. The Group applied the amendments from 1st January 2021 and there is no significant impact on the Group's consolidated financial statements.

COVID-19 Related Rent Concessions beyond 30th June 2021: Amendment to IFRS 16 Leases (effective 1st April 2021)

The Group adopted and applied the practical expedient of the COVID-19 Related Rent Concessions: Amendment to IFRS 16 Leases, published in June 2020 ('2020 amendment'), in the 2020 annual financial statements. The 2021 amendment extends the practical expedient in the 2020 amendment to eligible lease payments due on or before 30th June 2022. By using the 2021 amendment, the Group continues to apply the practical expedient consistently to all lease contracts with similar characteristics and in similar circumstances, and does not assess these concessions as lease modifications.

Share of tax credit of associates and joint ventures of US$1.5 million (2020: US$0.9 million) is included in share of results of associates and joint ventures (note 4).

   6.    LOSS PER SHARE 

Basic loss per share is calculated on loss attributable to shareholders of US$155.9 million (2020: US$435.5 million) and on the weighted average number of 1,263.2 million (2020: 1,263.2 million) shares in issue during the period.

Diluted loss per share is calculated on loss attributable to shareholders of US$155.9 million (2020: US$435.5 million) and on the weighted average number of 1,263.6 million (2020: 1,263.2 million) shares after adjusting for the number of shares which are deemed to be issued for no consideration under the share-based long-term incentive plans based on the average share price during the period.

The weighted average number of shares is arrived at as follows:

 
                                       Ordinary shares in millions 
                                                     2021     2020

Fair value estimation

(i) Financial instruments that are measured at fair value

For financial instruments that are measured at fair value in the balance sheet, the corresponding fair value measurements are disclosed by level of the following fair value measurement hierarchy:

(a) Inputs other than quoted prices in active markets that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly ('observable current market transactions')

The fair values of derivative financial instruments are determined using rates quoted by the Group's bankers at the balance sheet date. The rates for interest rate swaps and caps and forward foreign exchange contracts are calculated by reference to market interest rates and foreign exchange rates.

The fair values of unlisted investments mainly include club and school debentures, are determined using prices quoted by brokers at the balance sheet date.

(b) Inputs for assets or liabilities that are not based on observable market data ('unobservable inputs')

The fair values of other unlisted investments are determined using valuation techniques by reference to observable current market transactions (including price-to earnings and price-to book ratios of listed securities of entities engaged in similar industries), or the market prices of the underlying investments with certain degree of entity specific estimates or discounted cash flow by projecting the cash flows from these investments.

There were no changes in valuation techniques during the six months ended 30th June 2021 and the year ended 31st December 2020.

The table below analyses financial instruments carried at fair value at 30th June 2021 and 31st December 2020, by the levels in the fair value measurement hierarchy:

 
                                                   Observable

   (ii)       Financial instruments that are not measured at fair value 

The fair values of current debtors, bank and cash balances, current creditors, current borrowings and current lease liabilities are assumed to approximate their carrying amounts due to the short-term maturities of these assets and liabilities.

The fair values of long-term borrowings are based on market prices or are estimated using the expected future payments discounted at market interest rates. The fair values of non-current lease liabilities are estimated using the expected future payments discounted at market interest rates.
