The fallout from the sexual harassment allegations against casino tycoon Steve Wynn has spread to Macau, a crucial cash cow for his eponymous company, after the local gambling regulator said it was “concerned” about the claims made against him in the US.
博彩业大亨史蒂夫.韦恩(Steve Wynn)牵扯的性骚扰指控的影响已蔓延至澳门。澳门博彩监管机构表示,它“关注”韦恩在美国受到的指控。澳门是韦恩同名公司的关键财源。
Macau, the only part of China where casinos are legal, has been booming. Last year the enclave generated 71 per cent of the adjusted earnings at parent company Wynn Resorts, where Mr Wynn is chairman and chief executive as well as owning nearly 12 per cent of the shares.
作为中国唯一可以合法经营赌场的地方,澳门一直在蓬勃发展。去年,这块世外桃源对母公司永利度假村(Wynn Resorts)调整后利润的贡献率达到71%。韦恩是永利度假村的董事长兼首席执行官,拥有近12%的股份。
Wynn must re-bid for its Macau casino licence in 2022, and worries about the impact of the allegations that Mr Wynn sexually harassed women who worked at his casinos have unnerved investors.
永利必须在2022年重新申请其澳门赌场牌照,而对韦恩所受指控(性骚扰其赌场女员工)产生的影响的担忧,已令投资者感到不安。

Shares in Wynn Macau, the Hong Kong-listed subsidiary that operates the company’s Macau casinos, dropped 6.5 per cent on Monday and fell as much as 7.8 per cent on Tuesday after Macau’s Gaming Inspection and Co-ordination Bureau (DICJ) said it has met Wynn Macau’s management to discuss the allegations.
经营永利在澳门的赌场的香港上市子公司永利澳门(Wynn Macau)的股价周一下跌6.5%,周二跌幅高达7.8%。此前,澳门博彩监察协调局(Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau)表示,它已与永利澳门的管理层会面,讨论上述指控。
The DICJ said it was “concerned” about the claims of harassment, which were first reported by the Wall Street Journal and which Mr Wynn has denied.
澳门博彩监察协调局表示,它“关注”上述性骚扰指控。性骚扰指控最早是由《华尔街日报》(Wall Street Journal)报道的,韦恩已予以否认。
“The DICJ reiterated that the government of the special administrative region [of Macau] is concerned about the suitability of the gaming concessionaires’ major shareholders, directors and the principal employees,” it said in a statement.
该局在一份声明中重申,澳门特别行政区政府关注博彩承批公司主要股东、董事及在娱乐场担任要职的主要雇员的适当资格。
Wynn Macau said in a statement that it was “aware of certain media comments regarding the Gaming Inspection and co-ordination Bureau of Macau and will co-operate fully with any requests”.
永利澳门在一份声明中表示,“我们知悉有关澳门博彩监察协调局的若干媒体评论,并将全力配合任何问询”。
Ben Lee, who runs a gaming consultancy in Macau called IGamiX, said the DICJ’s intervention was worrying for investors because the regulator is “normally very reticent” about commenting publicly on allegations about concession holders.
在澳门经营一家名为IGamiX的博彩咨询公司的Ben Lee表示,澳门博彩监察协调局的干预令投资者担忧,因为该监管机构在公开评论特许持有人所涉的指控方面“通常非常谨慎”。
The timing is particularly sensitive, he added, because Wynn will have to re-bid for its government casino licence in 2022, alongside the other five casino concessionaires.
他补充说,这一时机尤其敏感,因为永利跟其他五家赌场特许经营公司一样,将必须在2022年重新向政府申请赌场牌照。
“When you’re coming up to such an important issue, you have to make sure your ducks are lined up and you’re beyond reproach,” said Mr Lee.
“当你面对如此重要的问题时,你必须确保把一切安排妥当,毫无可以指责之处,”Ben Lee说。
Wynn Resorts has formed a special committee of independent directors to investigate the allegations against its chairman. Mr Wynn resigned as finance chair of the Republican National Committee over the weekend. He said in a statement that “the idea that I ever assaulted any woman is preposterous”.
永利度假村已成立了一个独立董事特别委员会,调查其董事长受到的指控。韦恩在上周末辞去了共和党全国委员会(RNC)财务主席职务。他在一份声明中说,“说我侵犯过任何女性是荒谬的”。
Gaming regulators in the US state of Massachusetts, where Wynn Resorts is building a casino near Boston, said they will review the company’s licence.
美国马萨诸塞州博彩监管机构表示,他们将审查永利度假村的牌照。永利度假村正在波士顿附近修建一座赌场。
Analysts expect the Nevada Gaming Control Board, which oversees Wynn’s Las Vegas business, to follow suit.
分析人士预计,监管永利拉斯维加斯业务的内华达州博彩监管委员会(GCB)也将仿而效之。
They add that if he were forced to step down it would be a big blow to the business that bears his name.
他们补充道,如果韦恩被迫下台,那将对以他名字命名的企业构成巨大打击。
“While there is likely to be some attempt to downplay Mr Wynn’s day-to-day involvement in the company’s operations, the fact is that he is more involved in the day-to-day than most other CEOs,” analysts at Bernstein wrote in a research note. “His leadership in managing the personalities at the company would be extraordinarily difficult to replace if he were to step down.”
“虽然他们会试图对韦恩参与公司日常运营进行淡化,但事实是,他比其他大多数首席执行官介入日常事务的程度都深,”伯恩斯坦(Bernstein)分析师在一份研究报告中写道,“如果他下台的话,他在管理公司个性形象方面的领导能力将非常难以替代。”
In a section on risk factors in its 2016 annual report, Wynn Resorts said its competitiveness was dependent “to a large degree on the efforts, skills and reputation” of Mr Wynn and that his loss “could significantly harm our business”.
永利度假村在其2016年年报的风险因素部分表示,其竞争力“很大程度上取决于韦恩的努力、技能和声誉”,他的离去“可能严重损害我们的业务”。
