Red Rock Resorts’ board has declared a cash dividend of $0.25 per Class A common share for the fourth quarter of 2023. The dividend will be payable on December 29, 2023, to all stockholders of record as of the close of business on December 15, 2023.
Along with the Q3 report, Red Rock Resorts officials announced that the opening date of its new Durango Casino and Resort, located in the southwest region of Las Vegas, has been pushed back. The originally planned debut, scheduled for November 20, has now been delayed to December 5, in a move that took industry analysts by surprise.
The announcement was made during the company’s third-quarter earnings conference call. According to Red Rock Resorts’ CFO, Steven Cootey, this adjustment was deemed necessary “to ensure a first-class opening of the property,” as “certain areas” of the resort, which were described as “critical to the opening,” weren’t completed within the anticipated timeframe.
