Philippine Casino Stocks Surge on Gaming Revenue Growth Forecast

No comments:

First-half gaming revenue at the country’s casinos grew 16 percent to $1.4 billion, Philippine Amusement & Gaming Corp. Chairman Cristino Naguiat said in a telephone interview. There’s a “good chance” it will reach $3 billion this year as he has predicted before, he added.

China’s crackdown on graft has curbed gaming revenues in the region, with Macau posting a 37 percent decline in the first half of the year as the campaign kept away Chinese gamblers. Genting Singapore Plc has also been hurt.

Tourist arrivals in the Philippines increased 8.2 percent to 2.23 million in the first five months of the year, with most coming from South Korea, who accounted for 24.5 percent of the total, followed by the U.S. and Japan, according to government data. China is the fourth largest source of tourists, with a 7.1 percent share.

Philippine gaming revenue could have been higher if not for China’s anti-graft campaign, Naguiat said. The nation’s gaming revenue rose 14 percent to $2.5 billion last year from 2013.

GVC Holdings Offers to Buy Gambling Rival Bwin.Party

No comments:

LONDON — The online gambling company GVC Holdings said on Thursday that it had offered to acquire Bwin.Party Digital Entertainment in a deal that values its rival at more than 900 million pounds, or about $1.4 billion.

The bid comes just a little over two years after GVC joined forces with William Hill to acquire Sportingbet, another online gambling company.

Under the offer, GVC Holdings, based on the Isle of Man, would pay 110 pence a share in cash and shares for Bwin.Party, representing an 11 percent premium to its closing price on Wednesday.

First-reading vote Thurs on Macau full smoking ban

No comments:

The new tobacco control bill includes provisions to outlaw smoking lounges on casino mass floors as well as smoking in VIP rooms. The draft bill does not include a proposed enactment date. Macau officials have been quoted saying implementation is not likely to happen until early next year.

Smoking on casino main floors in Macau is currently only allowed in airport-style enclosed smoking lounges that do not contain any gaming tables or slot machines. Having a cigarette while gambling is at present still allowed in VIP rooms.

Any bill presented to the Macau Legislative Assembly receives its first reading in a plenary session, i.e., a full sitting of the legislature. If given a first-reading approval, it is then assigned to one of three working committees for detailed examination. After the committee has issued a report on the bill, it returns to the full assembly for its second and final reading.
