Caesars Entertainment offered £2.9bn for William Hill
One of the UK's leading bookmakers and casino operatorsWilliam Hill 676 может быть продан крупным американским компаниям. Руководство БК получило сразу два официальных предложения о покупке. Эту информацию подтверждает издание Financial Times.
The author of the first application is the leading US gambling operator Caesars Entertainment. The industry giant is ready to offer £2.9 billion for this deal. It is worth noting that the Americans already own 20% of the rights to William Hill, and the bookmaker, in turn, can offer its sports betting services at the operator's 54 casinos.
Caesars' finance department has calculated that if the bookmaker is acquired, the company's revenue could grow by $700 million as early as 2021.
Company CEO Tom Rig commented on the likely deal: "The opportunity to combine our land-based casinos, sports betting and online gaming in the US is a really exciting prospect."
The second bidder is an investment company Apollo Global Management. Details of the offer are not yet available. But experts agree that its size is inferior to the application of Caesars Entertainment.
The management of the bookmaker took time to think, promising to give a final answer before October 23.
