Granted, its tough to predict the timing of capacity normalization but we dont think its unreasonable to expect social distancing to be completely lifted sometime in 2022, which in turn should allow Kangwon Land Casino to release its remaining capacity. This should comfortably drive its revenues back to pre-coronavirus levels, if not more, given the expanded operating hours and capacity versus 2019, in our view.
