I will now turn it over to Bill Hornbuckle.

Bill HornbuckleChief Executive Officer & Director

Thank you, Cathy, and thank you all for joining us today. Over the past few months, we’ve had the honor and the privilege of welcoming back guests back to our properties at a remarkable pace, both in Las Vegas and our regional markets. It’s been rewarding to see our guests taking in all the world-class gaming and entertainment experiences that only MGM Resorts can provide, and it’s been equally gratifying to witness the tremendous effort of our employees delivering these experiences.

We have an amazing team of people here at MGM Resorts, the best in the business. And so I’d like to take this time to thank them today for their hard work and dedication to our company and our guests, especially over the last 18 months. I can’t say enough how critically important they have been, will continue to be to our success as we carry out our vision to be the world’s premier gaming and entertainment company. In fact, investing in our people and our planet is the foundation upon which we’ve built our strategic plan for the company’s long-term vision. Our strategic plan consists of the following four priorities: investing in our people and our planet, providing unique experiences for our guests by leveraging data-driven customer insights and digital capabilities, delivering operational excellence at every level, and allocating our capital responsibly to drive the highest returns for our shareholders. In driving our vision, we have long discussed our goals of simplifying our corporate structure and monetizing our real estate premium valuations to become asset light. We’ve been busy on this front.

And over the past 90 days, we’ve meaningfully advanced this strategy. In May, we announced an agreement to sell and lease back MGM Springfield, underlying real estate to MGM Growth Properties. We followed that news in July with an agreement to purchase Infinity World’s 50% interest in CityCenter and then to subsequently sell and lease back the underlying real estate to Blackstone at an unprecedented cap rate for gaming asset. And we’re very excited to become the full owners of Aria and Vdara operations soon. I’d also like to take this time to thank Bill Grounds from Infinity World, who has on the heels of this transaction stepped down from MGM’s Board after serving us since 2013. He’s been a great partner for many years, and we wish him the very best in the future.

And finally, as you know, we have spent significant time and effort working on the best solutions for our stated goal of deconsolidating MGP. And this morning, we were pleased to announce a comprehensive transaction with VICI and MGP to monetize the majority of our operating partnership units for approximately $4.4 billion in cash at a multiple that’s among the strongest in all gaming real estate transactions to date. This is a great win for MGM and MGP, and we’re excited by our new long-term partnership with VICI. Again, I’m incredibly proud of our finance, operating and legal teams, who have been accomplishing an astonishing amount in a short order to get these transactions across the finish line.

Combining these transactions grant us greater financial flexibility by the means of $11.6 billion in domestic liquidity and importantly, they allow us to intensify our focus on maximizing growth in our core business and pursuing opportunities that align to our long-term vision. In terms of such opportunities, we remain committed to our sports betting and iGaming joint venture, BetMGM, which continues to impress. Having expanded its net revenues and its leadership position in the second quarter, BetMGM is the #2 operator in the space nationwide, and in the second quarter, it commended 24% share of its live markets. BetMGM remains a clear leader in iGaming, having reached a 30% market share in the second quarter, and we also continue to see the benefits of customer acquisition cross pollinization between MGM and BetMGM.

In the second quarter, 15% of BetMGM’s new players came from MGM and 31% of MGM — M life sign-ups came from BetMGM. We’ll strategically invest in our digital capabilities and customer growth strategies, driving innovation and a deeper customer loyalty throughout technology led customer-centric experiences, products and services. These efforts will be led by Tilak Mandadi, who we recently hired as our Chief Strategy, Innovation and Technology Officer. Tilak is a visionary, a results-driven leader who has spent several decades of experience at both Disney and American Express, where he led similar initiatives.

Tilak will also be leading our relationship with BetMGM joining its Board of Directors. He’s another fantastic addition to our senior leadership team and complementary to the deep bench we’ve now built with recent additions of Jonathan as CFO; and Jyoti Chopra as our Chief People, Inclusion and Sustainability Officer. I have no doubt that will be invaluable to the company’s future. We’ll also increase our diversification into Asia through the footprint expansion in Macau and the integrated resort opportunity in Japan. As a matter of fact, we officially submitted our RFP as a sole bidder for the Osaka license a couple of weeks ago, which starts the clock on a 3-month review process.

We and our local partners, ORIX, remain excited by the opportunity, which we expect will yield very attractive returns. We look forward to Osaka reviewing our proposal, and hopefully, I’m confident, we’ll ultimately be named Osaka’s designee operator early this fall. And lastly, we continue to study key regional markets of significance, including commercial gaming license at Empire City in New York. Before I turn it over to Jonathan to delve into our second quarter results, I’d like to say a few words on our current business trends and our future outlook.

We reported a great second quarter at our domestic properties, driven by pent-up consumer demand and high domestic casino spend as well as our ability to yield our business and maintain our cost discipline efforts. In fact, we delivered all-time record margins in both Las Vegas and regional segments as well as all-time record EBITDA quarters at our regional properties. Further, 11 of our 17 domestic properties had all-time record quarters and slot gross win. And that momentum continued into July with another record month that exceeded June. I can’t tell you enough under these circumstances how pleased and proud I am of our entire team.

We have righted the ship, and we’re going full steam ahead. In Las Vegas, our weekend volumes are back to normal, driven by leisure and domestic casino customers with ADRs now surpassing 2019 levels. The weekday while improving continued to lag the weekends in the second quarter due to lower level of group business. That being said, June kicked off a series of citywide events coming to town such as World Of Concrete and Surfaces, and we anticipate a return of groups here in the third and fourth quarter. Feedback from meeting participants have been very positive. Our lead volumes in the year for the year, production is now close to normal levels, which we expect will help midweek occupancy uplift in the back half of the year.

We continue to believe that full convention business recovery will be post ’21 event, solidifying itself in the second half of 2022, and we remain pleased with how our ’22 and ’23 group calendar is shaping up as well as contract commitments for the future. In July, we relaunched entertainment with a great line of events that was met with overwhelming demand and now with Allegiant Stadium hosting large-scale entertainment, we can now drive more meaningful compression, especially at the mid- to south end of the strip. Consider the entertainment programming a few weekends ago, we had Garth Brooks at Allegiant Stadium, we had a McGregor fight at T-Mobile and Bruno Mars at Park MGM, selling over 98,000 tickets within our properties distance situated to capture significant amount of this foot traffic.

While our conviction in the long-term viability of our business remains stronger than ever, the recent rising number of COVID cases and the subsequent actions taken by the CDC and local regulators and our reinstituted mask mandates here in Las Vegas of note is a reminder that the pandemic is not completely behind us. In Las Vegas, we continue to facilitate vaccinations among our employee base and have partnered with the Governor’s Office to host multiple vaccination clinics including one at T-Mobile Arena, another on the strip at The Park, and we’re using the full weight of our business and resources as part of this effort, including significant incentive offers to both guests and employees, who get vaccinated or bring friends and family to get vaccinated.

We’ve also invested in ongoing educational employee campaigns as well as providing easy access to all three vaccines on pop-up clinics at all of our properties. In July, we implemented a mandatory COVID testing program for all of our Las Vegas employees, who have not proven proof of vaccination. We’ve taken the virus very seriously, and as always, the health and safety of our guests and employees is our top priority. At this time, it’s too early to speak to any meaningful impact to our business, but we are monitoring the situation closely. And we’ll continue to proactively work safely to accommodate guests and our properties. July, as I mentioned before, was the best month this year and by far in terms of operating performance, we ultimately feel great about our long-term positioning in Las Vegas.

The last few months have inevitably proven that the city remains resilient to a top destination for both business and specifically for tourism. Our regional properties that I mentioned earlier, delivered their best quarter-to-date yet in terms of EBITDA. We are encouraged by the stability of demand we saw at our properties as restrictions further eased into July, and I’m also pleased that our focus on cost and productivity across labor, player reinvestment and other streamline initiatives remain a key priority for our regional teams. And finally, on Macau, in the second quarter, we delivered sequential improvements over the first, amid a choppy GGR environment that remains well below pre-pandemic levels. Despite this, MGM China, given our strength in premium mass, continued to outperform our former position in the marketplace.

We believe the rate of Macau’s recovery will continue to hinge on broader sentiment as we pace the vaccinations rollout throughout the regions, which will ultimately lead to sustainable easing of travel restrictions. With the Guangdong outbreak quickly contained, July was off to a better start when we saw visitation and business volumes striking a pickup again. And while the region had felt some additional speed bumps in recent days, with the government’s expeditions efforts to contain the outbreak and border restrictions easing over time, we expect gradual growth demand for travel to Macau throughout the end of the second half of the year. We remain committed to elevating our footprint in Macau and will soon be increasing our upscale suite inventory.

We have finalized the construction and fitting in the South Tower suites and MGM Cotai and are pleased with the final product, which we believe will be well received by our premier mass clients. We are now in soft opening in order to make final adjustments to our product and to achieve a level of service that meets our high-quality of standards. We expect to officially open it later this month, and further, we completed the gaming space refresh in MGM Macau and are now looking at remodeling our villas.

At both properties, we’re enhancing our F&B options focused on the gaming floors, and over time, we have the ability to build out another hotel tower at MGM Cotai, along with meaningful entertainment assets to diversify our offerings. I am confident in Macau’s longer-term growth prospects and firmly believe our investment in premium product positions us well for a broader recovery. With that, I’ll turn this over to Jonathan to discuss our second quarter in more detail.

Jonathan S. HalkyardChief Financial Officer

Thanks a lot, Bill. Let’s first discuss our second quarter results. Our consolidated second quarter net revenues were $2.3 billion, significantly better sequentially over our first quarter results. Our net income attributable to MGM Resorts was $105 million, and our second quarter adjusted EBITDAR improved sequentially to $607 million — $617 million, once again, heavily driven by our domestic operations. Our Las Vegas strip net revenues in the second quarter were $1 billion, 31% below the second quarter of 2019 and 28% below, excluding Circus Circus Las Vegas, which was sold at the end of 2019. Despite the lower top line, we delivered far superior EBITDAR results.

Our second quarter adjusted property EBITDAR was $397 million, which is 5% below the second quarter of 2019 and just 1% lower, excluding Circus. Hold had a $6 million negative impact to our EBITDAR this quarter, so Hold-adjusted strip EBITDAR in Las Vegas was $403 million. Our strip margins improved almost 1,100 basis points to an all-time record of 39.5%. And this does not include the results of CityCenter, which generated $120 million of EBITDAR at a 46% margin.

As Bill mentioned in his remarks, our margin improvement was driven by a combination of strong leisure and casino demand, continued cost control and the operating leverage inherent in our business. Naturally, with limited convention business and entertainment, we are driving more visitation from customers that we know. And our second quarter casino room mix was nine points above pre-COVID levels. Furthermore, our second quarter casino revenues were 15% above 2019 levels and contributed to 35% of our overall net revenues in the second quarter. This compares to roughly 22% in all of 2019. We’re seeing particular strength in the slot customer.

Our second quarter slot handle was 23% greater than that of the second quarter of 2019 on an apples-to-apples basis, excluding Circus Circus. And for the first time since being impacted by COVID, we are now attracting the older 65-plus demographic to our strip properties at levels commensurate with what we were seeing pre-pandemic. Our second quarter occupancy was 77%, an improvement from 46% in the first quarter with weekends and weekdays at 94% and 70%, respectively. June occupancy was 83%, with weekends and weekdays at 96% and 79%, respectively. July occupancy was 86%. As pent-up demand — as pent-up leisure demand stabilizes longer term, we believe this will be offset by ramping group business, and I echo Bill’s comments that we’re very pleased with the current trajectory of that segment’s rebound.

I’ll close on Las Vegas with some thoughts on margins. Longer term, we believe that the 40% margins we achieved this past quarter will stabilize a bit lower as casino spend and overall business mix normalizes, and also as we ramp up staffing to more sustainable levels in order to serve our guests more fully. However, I know that we have further upside in overall profit dollars as our top line continues to rebound with group business and entertainment. I’m also confident that our focus on operational excellence and cost efficiency efforts will allow us to achieve strip margins well above 2019 levels long term.

Now on to our regional operations. Our second quarter regional net revenues of $856 million were aided by the continuing easing of statewide restrictions, and we’re just 6% below that of the second quarter in 2019. We delivered adjusted property EBITDAR well over 2019 levels, 22% to be exact, to $318 million. Much like in Las Vegas, we’re driving success in casino, with second quarter casino revenues outpacing 2019 levels by 8%, primarily due to slots and our higher-end customer base. Our 50 to 64 age demographic, of which I’m a proud member, is now at 2019 levels, and we’re attracting more of the 65-plus age demographic. Our second quarter regional margin of 37% was also an all-time record, growing 855 basis points over the second quarter of 2019 and sequentially by 316 basis points over the first quarter.

Our regional margin growth is a continued testament to all the great work that our teams have put into maximizing the effectiveness of our operating model and rethinking how we run our business. This ranges from marketing reinvestment to procurement, from energy utilization to labor management. And the breadth of our efforts gives me confidence that we will deliver on the $450 million of cost savings domestically, which we previously identified. Our margins of the regions will likely normalize a bit lower from second quarter levels longer-term as casino spend adjusts over time and as we reintroduce F&B and entertainment, especially in our destination markets.

We also expect to rightsize labor in the near term, which has certainly had a favorable impact on our margins, but it’s also become a bottleneck in certain segments of our operations, negatively impacting our EBITDAR. Still, similar to Las Vegas, I know that we can achieve regional margins well above 2019 levels longer term. Our joint venture BetMGM is clearly the #1 operator in U.S. iGaming and has solidified its #2 position nationwide in U.S. sports betting and iGaming. Net revenues associated with BetMGM operations grew 19% sequentially from the first quarter to $194 million in the second quarter. This was driven by growth in both iGaming and online sports betting verticals as a result of increased customer acquisition and strong retention that yielded more first time deposits and actives.

These results are especially impressive during the quarter with arguably minimal exogenous catalysts, no major state launches, a seasonally low sports calendar and a further reopening of brick-and-mortar casinos. Our share of BetMGM’s losses in the second quarter amounted to $46 million, which is reported as a part of unconsolidated affiliates line of our adjusted EBITDA calculation. We remain excited about BetMGM’s strong positioning in this fast-growing marketplace and both partners remain committed to its long-term success. Finally, in Macau, market-wide GGR sequentially improved 7% in the second quarter, but still remained depressed at only 35% of second quarter 2019 levels. Nevertheless, as Bill mentioned earlier, MGM China outperformed the market, with its GGR having recovered to 43% of pre-pandemic levels.

MGM China’s second quarter net revenues were $311 million, up slightly from the first quarter. Adjusted property EBITDAR of $9 million also improved quarter-over-quarter from $5 million in the first quarter. Hold-adjusted EBITDAR was $13 million on 2.75% VIP win in second quarter compared to 3.29% in the first quarter. Mass Hold was also lower sequentially. Our second quarter corporate expense, excluding share-based compensation, was $90 million, which included $6.5 million in transaction costs.

We expect that our quarterly net corporate expense will run a bit higher going forward as we ramp our investments in IT, our digital offerings and our IR efforts in Japan. In the near term, we also expect to incur incremental costs related to our recently announced transactions. We were active share repurchasers in the second quarter, having repurchased 5.6 million shares for $220 million. We believe our shares are attractively valued and we’ve purchased an additional 6.8 million shares for $263 million in the third quarter through today, bringing us to $615 million of share repurchases year-to-date. Bill talked about our recent milestones in simplifying our story and becoming asset light.

We sold MGM Springfield’s underlying real estate to MGP for $400 million at a 13.3 times rent multiple or a 7.5% cap rate. We also transacted on CityCenter, effectuating a high watermark on the sale of real estate assets at an 18.1 times rent multiple or a 5.5% cap rate and acquiring ownership of 100% of the operations of ARIA and Vdara at an implied multiple of 8.9 times based on CityCenter’s 2019 adjusted EBITDA from resort operations of $425 million. CityCenter’s second quarter results demonstrate the premium quality of the property, the excellence of its management team and its cash flow generating potential with adjusted EBITDA of $120 million, 13% above the second quarter of 2019 and with margins of 46%.

And finally, we announced today the transaction with VICI, whereby we will receive $43 per unit or approximately $4.4 billion in cash for a majority of our MGP OP units. As part of the agreement, we’ll hold an approximately 1% stake in the newly combined company valued at nearly $400 million. We will enter into an amended and restated master lease with VICI, with initial year’s rent at $860 million. The transaction values MGP at an implied 17.5 times pro rata EBITDA multiple for a 5.8% cap rate.

So it’s been a busy and a productive quarter. We expect to close on CityCenter by the end of the third quarter and Springfield by the end of the year, and our transaction with VICI will likely take us into the first half of next year to close, and all of these transactions are subject to regulatory approvals. The end result is a cleaner, more focused company, a streamlined reporting structure and a stronger deployable cash position to maximize shareholder value and advance our vision to be the world’s premier gaming entertainment company. As of June 30, our liquidity position, excluding MGM China and MGP, was $6.5 billion and $11.6 billion adjusted for the aforementioned announcements.

On last quarter’s call, I highlighted our approach to capital allocation, and it is certainly worth reiterating today. First, we’ll maintain a strong balance sheet with adequate liquidity. Second, we’ll return cash to shareholders, which we have done convincingly thus far this year. We will continue to take a disciplined and programmatic approach to shareholder — share repurchases for the balance of the year. And third, when assessing potential growth opportunities, we’ll invest where we have clear advantages. And will exercise discipline in measuring prospective returns for our shareholders. As we evaluate uses of our shareholders’ capital over time, these priorities will act as a blueprint for our decision-making process. With that, I’ll turn it back to Bill for his closing remarks.

Bill HornbuckleChief Executive Officer & Director

Thanks, Jonathan. We’re very pleased, obviously, with all we’ve accomplished thus far this year. Our strategic actions, together with the improving domestic backdrop, continued focus on operational excellence, and strong conviction in Macau’s recovery, positions us very well for the future. There’s a lot to be excited about when we think about our path on delivering our long-term vision. We remain focused, disciplined and ultimately transparent. With that, we’ll open to your questions. Thank you.

Questions and Answers:

Operator

Thank you. [Operator Instructions] And our first question will come from Joe Greff with JPMorgan. Please go ahead.

Joe GreffJPMorgan — Analyst

Good afternoon, guys. And nice results. I want to start off by talking about — to you, Bill, and Jonathan, what you just referred to is a sizable, deployable cash position. Obviously, you have Japan out there. And that’s not sort of a near-term thing, and that’s uncertain. You’ve been doing buybacks.

Maybe you can talk a little bit about maybe where M&A is and how much of a front burner priority for you and just in general, discuss your M&A aspirations and how you look at M&A as achieving whatever goals you have discussed maybe at the internal executive level or at the Board level? Thank you.

Bill HornbuckleChief Executive Officer & Director

Well, that’s a simple question, Joe. Thank you. Look, Jonathan said it, I’ve said it, you’ve heard us say it consistently, we are committed to becoming the premier gaming entertainment company in the world. We like to think we hold a key position in it already. We have expressed desires in digital. And the obvious, I must say, our strategy doesn’t refer and hint simply on one other company.

We are very excited about our JV with BetMGM and we continue to grow that. We have a great working relationship with that, and it’s productive. Jonathan has already shared the company’s position on share buybacks. And we’ll continue to look. But the good news is, I mean, we’ve got six or nine months before these transactions close and time is our friend. And so we’re going to be disciplined about the approach.

Jonathan S. HalkyardChief Financial Officer

It’s — Joe, it’s Jonathan. I would only add that it is such a dynamic environment right now. We are certainly all hands on deck as our operations continue to grow and recover here in the U.S. We do believe the shares are attractively valued right now, which is why we’ve been active in the market. We expect to continue to be so. But I really like our position in terms of our current liquidity and the expected liquidity with the transactions in Springfield and with VICI to be in a good position just with the way that things continue to change, and we expect them to evolve over the next several months and years.

Joe GreffJPMorgan — Analyst

Great. Thank you for that. Maybe can you just talk in some greater detail both for the Las Vegas strip and then the regional markets in general, labor challenges, finding people and then where wage pressure is going. How much of a mismatch is there between [Indecipherable] expense growth in the 2Q? Was the exit rate on the expenses and the margins different than it was for the full quarter given maybe a lag in operating expense pressure?

Bill HornbuckleChief Executive Officer & Director

Yes. I’ll turn this to Corey in a second, but just kick it off by saying, look, I think like the balance of the whole hospitality industry, we are suffering universally our share of labor shortages, some supply chain issues. They’re not critical, but they are important. We’ve done everything we can.

We’ve done incentives and other things to motivate people back to work. I think we all believe come the end of September, we’ll hopefully see some increase in terms of people’s willingness between the negotiations here, particularly with the legislature in Nevada, unemployment, hopefully, weighing in some respects. But we’ve been managing through it and effectively. I think the team has done a really good job with it. It has hampered some midweek occupancies. And we’ve pushed up our business and therefore, our ADRs, and we’ve yielded effectively. And so I think it’s helped our margins. So Corey, I don’t know if you want to pick it up?

Corey SandersChief Financial Officer and Treasurer

What I would add, Joe, is we’ve made a lot of headway over the last few weeks in finding the labor that we needed. As Bill mentioned, we have had some incentives. It’s not going to be very material at all on the impact of our labor cost.

Bill HornbuckleChief Executive Officer & Director

We’re trying to do everything we can not to completely change the paradigm now until things settle in. And so we continue to think about it in that context.

Joe GreffJPMorgan — Analyst

Great. Thank you, guys.

Operator

The next question is from Chad Beynon with Macquarie. Please go ahead.

Chad BeynonMacquarie — Analyst

Hi. Good afternoon. Thanks for taking my question. As you think about your time line in Las Vegas in terms of getting back to 2019 levels, given the strength on the hotel side on — particularly on weekends, in your gaming market share right now, can you help us think about how that’s changed in terms of when you believe you can get back to pre-pandemic levels on a revenue or EBITDA basis? Thanks.

Corey SandersChief Financial Officer and Treasurer

Yes, Chad. Hi. The question has been asked in the last few quarters when we think we’d get back to 90%. And I think we’re there, and that has accelerated. I think when we get back to exact ’19 levels will be when the convention business comes back in a pretty solid level. We’re seeing some pretty positive bookings and trends in 2022. So it could be as early as the first or second quarter of 2022 that we’re at ’19 levels, especially on the nongaming revenues.

Bill HornbuckleChief Executive Officer & Director

I mean mid-week and really through the balance of this year, we’re going to have about 1.2 million group room nights, give or take. Obviously, we’re all watching COVID closely in the coming weeks here. But we’ve had very limited cancellations. We’ve actually had a couple of upticks interestingly. And so that will be paramount to really setting the stage going forward. But again, long term, ’22 and ’23 fundamentally are looking great. And we’ve had no substantive cancellations given even what’s happened in the last week. So I think Corey’s estimate’s spot on.

Chad BeynonMacquarie — Analyst

Great. Thanks. And then on the digital side at the BetMGM Investor Day, you talked about market share goals, which you’re already exceeding. I think in the next couple of months, you’ll see some additional competition, but then on your side, I believe a lot of your retention tools will be in place. Can you just talk about what you’ll have in place over the next couple of months to help retain the customers that you’re currently doing business with?

Bill HornbuckleChief Executive Officer & Director

Well, obviously, you heard yesterday on Tom’s call, they’re going to step into the space in a substantive way now and chase it with about $1 billion. So they’ll be a real competitor. And if you think about what they do and what we do, it’s the most likely competitor to us in the context of same-store loyalty, presentation, ability to omni-channel and monetize across a broader platform, brick-and-mortar as well as digital.

We are heavily into our loyalty push. We have appointed several senior executives, both here and at BetMGM, who are marketing focused on doing exactly that. You heard me express earlier the amount of interchange between BetMGM and M life and vice versa. And we also have a strong push in moving regional play through BetMGM and through just the regional properties back here to Las Vegas.

We’ll have yet another product launch coming up here very soon. If you look in the deck we provided, you can see some of those product enhancements. The team at BetMGM is working around the clock on this to get it prepared for football. And I think it will speak to a lot of things of note, loyalty, retention and our ability to lower our ultimate CPA, which is the goal here, will stick.

Chad BeynonMacquarie — Analyst

Thanks, Bill. Nice quarter.

Operator

The next question will be from Carlo Santarelli with Deutsche Bank. Please go ahead.

Carlo SantarelliDeutsche Bank — Analyst

Hey, guys. Thank you. How are you? Jonathan, you gave a lot of color as you kind of talked through the puts and takes of the Las Vegas strip margin profile going forward. But if you talk a little bit about CityCenter and obviously — sorry, excuse me, Circus Circus removal. You guys gave in the period about $400 million less of revenue.

As you think about kind of being at a 40% margin level and that incremental $400 million of revenue that should come back over time, is it being overly conservative to say that the kind of margins do compress over the long term? Or is there some spend here over the medium-term that might kind of bring margins in a little bit before they could rise again from kind of the natural operating leverage of getting that revenue back?

Jonathan S. HalkyardChief Financial Officer

Yes. Thank you for the question, Carlo, and it’s well posed. Because there are a few dynamics going on here. One is certainly the — just the higher levels of casino spend from our customers that we’ve been experiencing over the past six months. And we’re not simply just kind of taking this business. We are driving that demand through our marketing channels. And so we’ve earned those revenue levels for sure. But they are elevated compared to what they’ve been in the past.

And that’s what I referred to in our remarks, is some expectation that over time, as other avenues for spending are available in our properties, that perhaps that mix normalizes a bit. But at the same time, our hotel RevPAR is still below where it was back in ’19 fairly materially, both by occupancy as well as overall rates. And that presents tremendous upside. That’s high-margin revenue for us. We fully expect to be able to get back to those levels over the next year or so.

And that will lead to — that will be very profitable revenue growth for us. At the same time, much of that is, of course, going to come with the recovery of the group business. So there are the puts and takes, as you put it. We’re just — we’re doing the best we can to account in the future for the impact that some of our labor additions are expected to have, but there are clearly sources of upside in revenue and even margin performance, mostly around the hotel mix.

Bill HornbuckleChief Executive Officer & Director

And what I would add, Carlo, is a few pieces of our business that are missing. We just opened up the restaurants. There’s an opportunity to make some additional EBITDA there. Yes, it will be a little bit less margin, and then the entertainment side. And we’re seeing some great demand there. That also will put a little bit of pressure on our margins, but it will increase our cash flows.

Carlo SantarelliDeutsche Bank — Analyst

Thanks. That’s helpful. Thank you both for that. And then if I could just one follow-up, and it’s kind of small and nitpicky. But could you guys kind of talk a little bit about the tax implications of the NGP, the transaction for you guys, the $4.4 billion of cash you’ll receive? And perhaps the rationale behind kind of holding on those 12 million OP units. Is that something tax related?

Jonathan S. HalkyardChief Financial Officer

It is. So in broad strokes, what will happen is VICI and MGP will merge, and MGM’s OP units or the vast majority of them will be redeemed for cash, and that — $4.4 billion in cash, and that will be tax deferred. And in keeping the 1% interest in the combined company, what will happen is on those remaining units, those — the basis of those units will be reduced by the amount of the gain that we will have on the $4.4 billion.

And this will be subject to a 15-year tax protection agreement with VICI, which protects us against that gain being triggered through any sales of the assets. So it’s a 15-year tax-deferred receipt of $4.4 billion, and the remaining interest is critical to that tax analysis.

Carlo SantarelliDeutsche Bank — Analyst

Great. That sounds like it was probably a very fun negotiation for you guys. Appreciate the color, guys. I can imagine. Thanks.

And the next question will come from David Katz with Jefferies. Please go ahead.

David KatzJefferies — Analyst

Hi. Good afternoon, everyone. Thanks for taking my question. As we have listened to companies report and talk about the businesses and their outlooks and at the same time, talk with investors about the sustainability of the margin gains that we’re seeing primarily out of this quarter. And clearly, we meet an amount of cynicism around everybody’s ability to do that. Can you just help us alleviate some of that cynicism and why we should be comfortable that the margin gains will be reasonably permanent?

Bill HornbuckleChief Executive Officer & Director

Well, David, let me kick it off and maybe Corey can jump on here. The margin that we did this quarter is not sustainable. I think we’ve said that in a couple of different ways. But what I think is really relevant is that where we are versus where we’re going to end up is a substantial difference up. And so as these high value, high revenue, high cost things like a Lady Gaga show come into play, it just — it works on your margins, given particularly as the higher end business returns, whether it be ultimately from Asia or other places, it will kick in. And so I don’t think — I hope you haven’t heard us say we’re going to sustain where we are this quarter.

That wasn’t the message. The message is we have learned a lot. We’re going to be appreciably better than we’ve been in — I can’t remember, in our history. And there are certain things we’ll never do again, whether it’s buffet openings or how we think about labor or services or products, given what we’ve all gone through for the last 18 months.

There’s a massive amount of learnings of how to even think about our business. I mean just look at our corporate enterprise, we had 4,750 FTEs. We’re under 3,000 today. We will never go back to 4,750 FTEs, full stop. And so I hope the message is, from our perspective, we’re not going to sustain where we are, but they will be much better than they’ve ever been historically. I’m pretty excited about where I think they’re going to end up ultimately.

David KatzJefferies — Analyst

That was relatively clear. I could have asked the question just a little bit better. And if I can follow-up quickly with respect to the loyalty program, Jonathan, I recall you making some commentary in investor meetings about the opportunities to build and life out in a lot of different directions and grow it. An update there would be helpful. Thank you.

Jonathan S. HalkyardChief Financial Officer

Sure. I appreciate you bringing it up because I do — I know this is a huge opportunity for MGM Resorts. I mean we have a fantastic loyalty program with 36 million members, which is growing in significant part by BetMGM right now. And so it’s a large and important loyalty program. And where I think some of the sources of upside are particularly around cross property play here in Las Vegas and kind of the transparent portability of those rewards across the network in Las Vegas, and then in driving regional customers of ours, members of the M life’s loyalty program to our properties when they visit in Las Vegas, which we know that they already do.

I think that this effort, of course, is led by Steve Zanella, our Chief Commercial Officer. But here’s where Tilak Mandadi, this phenomenal talent that has just joined us from Walt Disney is going to be hugely impactful as he helps us really build out the technology platform and the overall design of that program in its next instance. So there’s a lot of work going on around that effort right now, and I’m really confident it’s going to have a real impact for us in 2022.

Corey SandersChief Financial Officer and Treasurer

And just a few data points to that. We have just began some of these initiatives. Our cross-regional for the quarter was actually up 25%. So we’re pretty excited about that opportunity there. We’re just touching the surface. And even when we talk about BetMGM and what it means to a property, our Detroit active M life customers in Q2 were actually up 40% from Q4 ’19. So we’re seeing that actual sign up in that market actually translate to bricks-and-mortar customers. And you actually would see that in the July results, which Detroit does publish the results. We had a record market share in Detroit.

Bill HornbuckleChief Executive Officer & Director

And David, maybe a final comment. There’s four areas we’re consistently after the high end. And so we’re looking at the program and modifying it and making sure digitally more things are accessible. We’re after retail high end, meaning — I don’t mean retail stores, I mean we have a great deal of business that roams around here that aren’t principally gaming customers that we think there’s an opportunity to recognize with loyalty. Obviously, the regional play that Corey has mentioned and Jonathan and BetMGM are really the four key drivers. And then one interesting tidbit I stumbled on this morning, Corey just mentioned it’s somewhat in Michigan.

One of the questions that’s come up with BetMGM is about cannibalization. It’s interesting. Detroit just got 46.5% market share in brick-and-mortar. And we lead the market in iGaming at 38%, and that’s an increase in the mid-30. We were 43% in June. We’re 46.5% in July, and we’re holding at 38% market share in iGaming. And so the idea that omni-channel can and will work and not be cannibalizing is something I’m very excited by moving forward.

David KatzJefferies — Analyst

Appreciate it. Thank you very much.

The next question comes from Thomas Allen with Morgan Stanley. Please go ahead.

Thomas AllenMorgan Stanley — Analyst

Thanks. So actually following up on this conversation. If we look at Slide 24 of your presentation, you had 15% of new BetMGM players in 2Q who were active with MGM. That’s up from 10% last quarter. And then you had 31% of new M life players in 2Q who were from BetMGM, and that’s down from 44% last quarter. Can you kind of talk about what’s driving the difference in trend between those two numbers? And like how to think about it going forward? Thank you.

Bill HornbuckleChief Executive Officer & Director

Well, I think the second one is the easier one. We’ve just seen that many more. I mean the volume between the first and second quarter and how — and Michigan, by the way, how it grew is just — it’s overpowering and — thankfully. So I think that explains that more than anything. I’m sorry, Tom, the first one?

Thomas AllenMorgan Stanley — Analyst

So the first one, so in the first quarter, 10% of your BetMGM players were legacy MGM players and second quarter went up to 15, what drove that increase?

Bill HornbuckleChief Executive Officer & Director

Well, Michigan a lot, and then we continue to push on programming, hosts, et cetera, in terms of incentives and otherwise to get them to sign up our customers. And we just have more active in the database in terms of making BetMGM known to them and available to them.

Thomas AllenMorgan Stanley — Analyst

Helpful. And then I see you reiterated your you’re $1 billion of revenue next year for BetMGM. I mean, you did $357 million in the first half of this year. I mean [Indecipherable] potential upside there now?

Bill HornbuckleChief Executive Officer & Director

We do. Remember, iGaming just got going second — really into the second quarter, not even in the first quarter. You’ve got football, I think, with better programming, better database to pull upon. We’ve got a couple of states that are on the horizon of coming out. You’ve got Maryland. You’ve got something we’ve just done in D.C. Arizona is around the corner. So I think between an increase in states, the full year, if you will, of iGaming and some other potential things that we continue to market, hence, the numbers we just talked about, we feel pretty comfortable about the GGR — the NGR excuse me.

Thomas AllenMorgan Stanley — Analyst

Alright. Thank you.

The next question will be from Shaun Kelley with Bank of America. Please go ahead.

Shaun KelleyBank of America — Analyst

Hi. Good afternoon, everyone. Just following up on the VICI transaction, and congratulations on all the myriad of activity. I was wondering if we could just get a little guidance as we’re trying to think about maybe cash flow bridges.

One would be, I’m sort of calculating pro forma rent expense for all of these different things coming out in the kind of $1.6 billion to $1.7 billion range. So first question is, am I in the right ballpark for that? And then second would be sort of directionally, how should we think about cash taxes across the enterprise after all these moving pieces settle into ’22?

Jonathan S. HalkyardChief Financial Officer

Yes. The — you are in the right ballpark. The changes are really the CityCenter, which we expect to close at the end of the third quarter, and that will introduce increased rent of $215 million. So you’ll be close on that.

And then regarding the cash taxes, that’s something that’s still — we’re still working on right now as it relates to 2022. So I think what — I’d prefer to defer that question until we get a little bit later in the year.

Shaun KelleyBank of America — Analyst

Understandable. Maybe just as a follow-up, you talked a lot about the gaming behavior and the increase in your casino block. Just kind of curious if you could give us a sense across your different channels. What’s OTA doing right now? How important is that? Is that an area where you can maybe change the mix more permanently? Or just how are you thinking about some of that, particularly that hotel revenue mix going forward in more of a steady state?

Corey SandersChief Financial Officer and Treasurer

Shaun, this is Corey. Yes. That’s one of our big strategies that we’re definitely working on. We are working on pre-COVID as the mix in maximizing that mix. And we’ve had a lot of success in this period. We’ve been able to increase our transient mix obviously, as Jonathan mentioned in his opening comments, the casino mix is up.

But more importantly, we’re shifting the mix from the OTA package business, which is our least profitable business, and seeing increases in the land business which was very similar to our transient business. So we’re very optimistic on what we’re seeing there. And when that convention business comes back, we think there is additional opportunities to maximize our mix.

Shaun KelleyBank of America — Analyst

That is great. Thank you, everyone.

Operator

And the next question comes from Stephen Grambling with Goldman Sachs. Please go ahead.

Stephen GramblingGoldman Sachs — Analyst

Hi.Thanks. Maybe you touched a base on this a little bit, but turning to Japan, can you just remind us what the capital contributions you’d be anticipating over the next couple of years? And as you become more asset light, what is the potential to bring in REITs or other sources of capital into that market to reduce your asset intensity there?

Bill HornbuckleChief Executive Officer & Director

So on its surface, remember, the program with ORIX is for 40:40:20, meaning a consortium of other Japanese companies will make up to 20%. If not, we both fill to 50. The project itself is, call it, $10 billion. We think it’s a little lower, but call it $10 billion for simple math. Call it, 55% debt to equity. So for us, it’s a $2 billion to $2.25 billion check. Probably over ’24, ’25 and ’26, give or take, if you want to think about how that might flow itself through the system.

I think longer term, look, there’s a commitment we’re making to Japan and to Osaka that we would be a true partner in this. There’s an actual requirement for 30% equity in it to be classified or qualified, if you will. But REITs are something that are in Japan. And so I think longer term, we’ll see. But in the short term, it’s about a $2 billion to $2.5 billion cash commitment over three years. And depending, again, on licensing, ’24, ’25 and ’26 is probably the best way to think about that.

Stephen GramblingGoldman Sachs — Analyst

Great. And then sticking with maybe capital allocation. How are you thinking about the allocation of proceeds from VICI, similar difference in cash from operations. And then has your thought process around the right leverage ratio for an asset-light business evolved? Thank you.

Jonathan S. HalkyardChief Financial Officer

Yes. Thank you for the question, Stephen. That transaction is expected to close in the first half of 2022. So the plans for the allocation of that capital will begin soon. They’ve already begun actually. And — but the actual cash won’t come to the company for probably nine months or so. And like I said in the prepared remarks, really, our first order of business at these levels, we think our shares are attractively valued. And so we’ll be aggressive purchasers of those shares.

Beyond that, we’ll look for opportunities to — inorganic opportunities to really further the company’s vision as a premier gaming entertainment company globally. In terms of our leverage targets, the company’s capital structure is changing from a traditional senior debt structure to the leases that we have, and that will — that certainly impacts our thinking about leverage, because the lease payments do represent financial leverage on the business and lease-adjusted leverage level of four to five times, we think, is reasonable for a business of our geographic diversification. And so that’s the way we’ll be thinking about it going forward on a lease-adjusted basis.

Stephen GramblingGoldman Sachs — Analyst

Very helpful. Thank you so much.

The next question is from John DeCree with CBRE. Please go ahead.2

John DeCreeCBRE — Analyst

Hey, everyone. Thank you for taking my questions. Maybe to build on that, Jonathan or Bill. I think there’s still some interest in potentially U.S. markets. For a casino in New York is one that gets talked about a lot. Not sure if you guys have any comments or thoughts or any of those prospective opportunities, something you see coming to fruition in the near medium term? Or are they all kind of longer-dated opportunities that might that might unfold in the future?

Bill HornbuckleChief Executive Officer & Director

Look, in New York, it was disappointing, we weren’t able to get it to the legislature. It was close. We’re going to take another run at it. But the reality of that is we’re probably looking at ’23 before there’s a real decision to be made there. We still have a keen interest in taking a [Indecipherable] casino and time to tell what ultimately gets invested there and how we partner that up. But we remain excited by that.

Obviously, given location and scale, it’s kind of hard not to be. We’ll watch Georgia and Texas over time with interest. But again, those are long-term deals. They both require, I believe, a referendum. I know Texas does. And so that’s not going to happen overnight. And so I think domestically, we’re going to try to push for Ohio in the context of a casino, but that will be time again. So there’s nothing immediate on the horizon in terms of real development. I think the only way to think about development for the near-term is the Japan discussion we just had.

John DeCreeCBRE — Analyst

Thanks, Bill. And then changing subjects a little bit with CityCenter coming entirely into the fold. Is there anything that you would do or could do differently from an operational perspective now that you’ll have 100% ownership? Any advantages that we should be thinking about?

Corey SandersChief Financial Officer and Treasurer

This is Corey, John. We ran it like we’ve owned 100% of it. But we do think there are opportunities, how we synergize with Bellagio. For example, Vdara is like right — is as close to the Bellagio Convention Center as it is to Aria. And we think there’s some other additional operational efficiencies that could be gained owning 100% of it, but we’re pretty excited about finally getting our hands on it.

Jonathan S. HalkyardChief Financial Officer

I’d also just add one comment that I’m excited about consolidating this fantastic business. Our Las Vegas EBITDAR would have been 30% higher this quarter had we consolidated CityCenter, which is — it’s a phenomenal business, which outperforms our citywide averages on virtually every dimension. So I’m enthusiastic about having it be consolidated into our financial results.

Bill HornbuckleChief Executive Officer & Director

And what, it gave us a 41% margin for the quarter.

Jonathan S. HalkyardChief Financial Officer

Right.

John DeCreeCBRE — Analyst

Yes. Great. It’s been a long time coming. Congratulations on that and everything else.

Bill HornbuckleChief Executive Officer & Director

Thank you. That was not easy one.

Operator

And the next question will be from Barry Jonas with Truist Securities. Please go ahead.

Barry JonasTruist Securities — Analyst

Thank you. I think it’s clear, the goal is to be more efficient on the cost side versus 2019 or pre COVID levels. But do you think the revenue mix of gaming in Vegas could be structurally higher as well? Or I guess, are there any more recent top line trends you would expect to sustain going forward?

Bill HornbuckleChief Executive Officer & Director

Look, I’d love to think that the movement we’ve made pushing regional customers, we’ve watched for too long, frankly, with great interest what our colleagues next door have been doing. Our market mix is half of theirs. We know we can increase that. So we think that’s sustaining. Obviously, what we have done best historically is high end international business. We’re well positioned. We have a plant in Macau, obviously. We have regional offices all over Asia. We’d like to see us get back into that business.

I think there’s some real growth there. And I think interestingly, the demographic has changed to a younger audience, and they’ve gotten more acclimated to gaming. We’ve seen it throughout this past year. A lot of these numbers, remember, the older folk like myself have generally stayed away for health concerns. And I think we’ve seen the emergence, if you will, of another marketplace, it’s called millennial that we haven’t seen for a while. So we’re all pretty excited about driving that and some of the platform technology, things we talked about earlier with M life, we think will be meaningful in that regard.

And what I would say is I think we have our cost pretty walked in. Obviously, there’s always opportunities. Now it is a revenue discussion and how we continue to maximize that and how we can grow organically higher than what we’re seeing in cost of living. I think some of the digital initiatives we’re working on, on that, the mix will help that. As Bill mentioned, that customer base, we’re up over 50% M life customers in that group. And if we could figure out how to capture them, and we believe we have ways to do that and keep them in the properties, we think there’s opportunity for revenue lift.

Barry JonasTruist Securities — Analyst

Got it. And then just curious, there was strong commentary on slot play levels, which is interesting, given the commentary on a younger player base. But how are you thinking about slot capex investment going forward?

Bill HornbuckleChief Executive Officer & Director

Yes. We’re looking at it right now. And we’re looking at our floors. We — actually what we did during COVID and since we’ve opened, we’ve rightsized our floors, and we’ve actually relaid them out, you’ll see pods, you’ll see better vision, better excitement. We think there’s also opportunities in pockets to increase our capital spend with some decent ROIs, and we’re looking at that right now.

Barry JonasTruist Securities — Analyst

Great. Thanks so much.

Catherine ParkExecutive Director, Investor Relations

Last question please, Chad.

Operator

Sure. And that question will come from Robin Farley with UBS. Please go ahead.

Robin FarleyUBS — Analyst

Great. Thank you for fitting me in. I just wanted to circle back to the tremendous proceeds that you’re getting, because I know you’ve talked about your balance sheet and all of that, but it doesn’t seem like you would need it for any liquidity. It doesn’t seem like you need it for any projects near term.

So I’m just wondering, is there any sort of tax reason that you couldn’t do a special dividend? Or is there a consideration there? And you use the phrase kind of, I think if I heard it right, it looks for inorganic opportunity. So that’s a pretty sizable budget in terms of looking for. I assume that means potential M&A. And so I don’t know if you can characterize kind of where you see the portfolio having gaps to fill. What kind of thing might be of interest to you? Thanks.

Jonathan S. HalkyardChief Financial Officer

Thanks, Robin. I’ll offer following — a few thoughts and then turn it over to Bill. There’s really no tax reason why we could not deploy that capital as a dividend to our shareholders or for returning capital to shareholders through other means. And in fact, that remains a priority for us. It is their capital. It represents, in broad terms, I think about it as releasing capital from the real estate in this business, freeing it up for other uses, including returning to shareholders.

My comment about inorganic opportunities, I’m sure that can be development, can be M&A, and it’s really in recognition that it’s a very dynamic environment and market with some interesting things going on. And so we really like our position having this kind of liquidity available to seize on those, but I’ll turn it over to Bill.

Bill HornbuckleChief Executive Officer & Director

Yes. Robin, I want to remember — remind, I should say, look, we talked about focus, we talked about discipline, and we’ve talked about in our vision being a gaming company at foremost. And so look, where gaming and entertainment might intersect themselves will be there, where digital will be there.

We have some reinvestments back in our properties. We think that’s important over the next couple of years in terms of room remodels and some other things. I don’t know we’ll go too far afield. I don’t think that’s probably in our best interest or our shareholders. So I think you’ll see us disciplined and very focused on the idea of driving this whole omnichannel into a different and better place as we think about the next decade or so.

Robin FarleyUBS — Analyst

Maybe just one clarifying question just since a large Vegas asset came up for sale earlier this year. Is it fair to conclude that maybe MGM doesn’t necessarily see a benefit in like growing its Vegas presence? Or I mean, it seems like any property you acquire, there would be a tremendous amount of synergy just given the scale you have there. But is it fair to assume from sort of how things have played out this year that, that wouldn’t necessarily be an area that you want to grow your presence?

Bill HornbuckleChief Executive Officer & Director

Robin, I don’t think we’re going to comment right now. I appreciate the question, but I don’t think it’s — we’re not going to comment right now.

Robin FarleyUBS — Analyst

Okay. Thank you.

Ladies and gentlemen, this concludes our question-and-answer session. I would like to turn the conference back over to Bill Hornbuckle for any closing remarks.

Bill HornbuckleChief Executive Officer & Director

Yes. Thank you, Chad, and I’ll be quick since this is going a little bit over. Again, I just want to call out and thank our team, both universally and specific to deal teams that got us through this quarter with this tremendous pace. We’re coming off an amazing quarter. July is even more so. So I know what we have put in play is trackable, is doable and sustainable. And so we’re very excited by that. Labor and supply chain remain an issue for our company as it does in the industry. But we’ve also learned a lot from that by not having some things easily accessible to us. We’ve figured out different and potentially better ways to do things. And so those learnings aren’t going to go away.

We’re going to remain diligent and keep the pressure on with COVID, particularly as it relates to our employees and making sure we get them vaccinated. We’re making good headway over the last 30 days, and we’ll continue to push on that aggressively. We look forward to our group business returning in the back half of the year and have no reason to believe that at this date that it won’t with some velocity. BetMGM continues to shine.

There’s no reason to believe that second half of this year is not going to do the same. And as we’ve all talked about, we have this tremendous liquidity position we’re now looking at. And so the future is bright and the opportunity is, I think, extensive. But again, we’re going to be patient and disciplined about what we do and when we do it. So having said that, I appreciate everyone’s attendance, and thank you all.
