Las Vegas Sands posts first-quarter loss on coronavirus woes

April 22 (Reuters) - Casino operator Las Vegas Sands Corp reported a loss for the first quarter compared to a year-ago profit, as the coronavirus-induced lockdown kept people away from gaming tables.

Net loss attributable to Las Vegas Sands was $1 million in the quarter ended March 31, compared to a profit of $582 million a year ago.

Net revenue plunged 51.1% to $1.78 billion. (Reporting by Sanjana Shivdas in Bengaluru; Editing by Maju Samuel)
