MGM Mirage's annual profit may be cut as much as 10 cents a share because the company closed its Siegfried & Roy show after magician Roy Horn was attacked by a tiger Friday, Deutsche Bank analyst Marc Falcone said.
But the company's stock held up relatively well Monday: It eased 35 cents, or 1%, to $36.48 on the New York Stock Exchange.
Horn, 59, was bitten in the neck by a 600-pound white tiger during a performance at the Mirage hotel and casino in Las Vegas. Horn remains in critical condition, said Cheryl Persinger, a spokeswoman for University Medical Center in Las Vegas.
The show, featuring illusions with tigers and other animals, has been canceled indefinitely, MGM spokesman Alan Feldman said.
Siegfried & Roy's six weekly shows always sold out at the Mirage's 1,504-seat theater, Feldman has said.
Analysts estimated that MGM Mirage got less than half the revenue from the sale of the $110.50 show tickets. But the Mirage will lose restaurant, casino and retail revenue from guests who would have seen the show, Falcone said.
