Ocean Park announced its financial year results today (7th). As of the end of June this year, the loss during the 2021-2022 fiscal year reached HK$1.81 billion.
Ocean Park pointed out that the loss was mainly reflected in the book value of a one-off property, machinery and equipment and right-of-use asset impairment loss of HK$1.7647 billion, which did not affect cash flow.
However, Ocean Park's revenue increased by 15.6% year-on-year, the company's overall revenue increased by 38.5% year-on-year, and per capita income also increased by 21.2%. Taking into account the government's annual subsidies to the company, it recorded a total operating surplus of HK$436.2 million.
Huang Sihui, Chief Executive Officer of Ocean Park Corporation, said that in the face of macroeconomic uncertainty, unfavorable geopolitical developments, and the continued epidemic situation that has brought inbound tourism activities to a near standstill, the operating situation in the last financial year was extremely severe.
Ocean Park stated that there was an annual loss of HK$1,815.7 million in the last financial year. The loss was mainly composed of a one-off impairment loss of property, plant and equipment and right-of-use assets of HK$1,764.7 million, and another HK$1.7647 billion. Depreciation and write-off of property, plant and equipment and depreciation of right-of-use assets resulted in $513.7 million.
However, the asset impairment is only reflected in the book value and does not affect the cash flow.
As of June 30 this year, the company's bank balance and cash totaled 1.3116 billion yuan, reflecting the company's current financial reserves are sufficient.
Ocean Park recorded 1.4 million admissions in the relevant year, maintaining the level of the previous financial year.

In addition, the company prudently controlled costs and recorded an operating surplus of HK$436.2 million, taking into account the government's annual subsidy to the company.
