The Star unveils Crown merger designs to develop $12b gambling large

Casino operator The Star Amusement Group has unveiled a bid to merge with James Packer’s Crown Resorts to develop a enormous $12 billion gambling giant.

In a statement to the ASX these days, which outlined the merger proposal, The Star mentioned in a 21-website page doc it believed the ACCC would not oppose the offer.

The Star is doing the job with Credit rating Suisse to set up funding for the opportunity offer, it stated in the statement.

A merger would “develop a nationwide tourism and intercontinental leader” with a “environment-course portfolio” of resorts in 4 states, the assertion mentioned.

Star chairman John O’Neill claimed the proposed $12 billion gambling business would keep on being stated on the ASX.

“The put together group would be a compelling investment decision proposition and one particular of the largest and most attractive built-in resort operators in the Asia Pacific region,” Mr O’Neill claimed.
