US – Pinnacle shines light on Lumiere deal

By - 19 August 2013

Pinnacle Entertainment has entered into a definitive agreement for the sale of Lumiere Place Casino HoteLumiere, and the Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis, to Tropicana Entertainment for $260m.

Anthony Sanfilippo, Chief Executive Officer of Pinnacle Entertainment, said: “We are pleased to enter into this agreement with Tropicana and to sell the high quality assets underlying this transaction to an equally high quality operator of gaming entertainment properties. We are also pleased to reach this very important next step in addressing the Federal Trade Commission’s concerns regarding the competitive dynamics of the St. Louis gaming market, and to progress toward fulfilling the divestiture conditions of the consent order that was accepted by the FTC on August 12th. Following the completion of the divestitures of both Lumiere Place Casino and Hotels and Ameristar’s Lake Charles development project, we will use the substantial cash proceeds we receive from these transactions to repay  debt and reduce our leverage.”

Lumiere Place Casino and Hotels will be accounted for as discontinued operations beginning in the 2013 third quarter. The sale of Lumiere Place Casino and Hotels is expected to close by the end of the 2014 first quarter, subject to the approval of the Missouri Gaming Commission and Federal Trade Commission, as well as customary closing conditions.
