Statement on recent Supreme Court ruling regarding sports betting
The recent Supreme Court ruling regarding sports betting will have NO immediate effect on our gaming operations. Alabama and Florida State laws still prohibit sports betting in brick and mortar facilities such as our race tracks and Wind Creek Casinos.
Further communications from Wind Creek Hospitality about this transaction will be limited until it has had the opportunity to meet with the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, other regulatory agencies, its new Bethlehem Team Members, and community leaders and future partners
Wind Creek Hospitality expects to fund the acquisition with a combination of existing cash on its balance sheet and new debt financing. Credit Suisse has provided committed financing for the proposed transaction. Wind Creek Hospitality anticipates that the additional cash flow resulting from the acquisition will allow it to pay down debt on an accelerated basis after closing.
Approvals and Timing
The transaction is subject to approval of applicable gaming authorities, the expiration or termination of the applicable waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act and other customary closing conditions. The companies expect the transaction to close later in 2018 or early 2019.
