Caesars details £2.9bn takeover offer for William Hill

first_imgThe bookmaker explained that having received an initial written proposal from Apollo on 27 August, it then received a further offer from the firm, while Caesars made its own proposal. Last month, Caesars Entertainment Inc. – the name for the combined business – reported a $1.17bn net loss for the first half of the year. The operators announced the deal in June last year, with Eldorado agreeing to pay $17.3bn – comprising $7.2bn in cash and around 77m Eldorado common shares – to take ownership of Caesars. Caesars addressed this in the statement on its own offer, saying that if Apollo were to acquire William Hill, Caesars would then be entitled to terminate rights associated with the joint venture it operators with William Hill in the US. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Any offer would be subject to approval of William Hill shareholders, though the bookmaker’s board of directors has indicated that the proposed terms of the bid mean it would be minded to recommend that the offer be accepted. The offer would see Caesars pay 272.0 pence for each William Hill share, with the operator also revealing that it has finalised its due diligence and will make a further announcement on the potential offer when appropriate. Caesars, which has a 20% equity ownership in the venture to William Hill’s 80%, said that any acquisition agreement with Apollo would see it terminate mobile market access rights and rights to operate sportsbooks at it premises that are granted to the venture by Caesars. “We look forward to working with William Hill to support future growth in the US by providing our customers with a superior and comprehensive experience across all areas of gaming, sports betting and entertainment.” “The opportunity to combine our land-based casinos, sports betting and online gaming in the US is a truly exciting prospect,” Caesars’ chief executive Tom Reeg said. “William Hill’s sports betting expertise will complement Caesars’ current offering, enabling the combined group to better serve our customers in the fast-growing US sports betting and online market. Caesars said that it intends to pursue a more integrated arrangement with an unnamed media company to further align interests and create an enhanced customer offering. Finance In terms of how Caesars would finance the acquisition, the operator said it plans to launch an equity capital raise today (28 September) with proceeds from this to be put towards the purchase.  Details of the offer comes after it was revealed last week that both Caesars and alternative investments giant Apollo Global Management had put forward separate cash proposals to acquire the business. The takeover bid would also require customary antitrust and regulatory gaming approvals, but Caesars said it would expect to secure this approval and complete the transaction in the second half of 2021. Caesars details £2.9bn takeover offer for William Hillcenter_img In addition, should the acquisition go ahead, William Hill would have complete access to Caesars’ loyalty programme, in an arrangement Caesars said would benefit all customers. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Caesars also said the combined business would have a “world class” portfolio of assets, as well as the ability to access Caesars’ pre-existing relationships with teams and events including being the exclusive casino partner of the National Football League. US gaming giant Caesars Entertainment Inc. has set out further details of its possible cash offer for William Hill, saying that it is set to make a bid worth £2.9bn (€3.29bn/$3.71bn) for the bookmaker. Going into detail on the benefits it believed the acquisition would have on the wider business, Caesars said a combined business would better serve customers in the US, as well as increase its market access in the country and provide a more unified customer experience by consolidating applications and wallets. Email Address Caesars would also use existing cash as well as $2.0bn of new non-recourse debt facilities, which it intends to enter into and secure against William Hill’s non-US businesses. Through this joint venture, William Hill runs online sports betting operations through Caesars’ market access in each state and retail sports betting in Caesars’ properties as well as those of other casino operators across the US. However, should Caesars succeed with its offer, the operator said it would seek to broaden the scope of the venture to maximise the opportunity in the sports betting and gaming sector, as well as provide an enhanced customer experience. 28th September 2020 | By Aaron Noy The combination, Caesars said, would also allow for greater alignment with media companies. Caesars already has in place a multi-year relationship with ESPN, while William Hill has a partnership with CBS. Regions: UK & Ireland US Topics: Finance The potential offer comes after the legacy Caesars Entertainment Corporation business in July was acquired by Eldorado Resorts, in a reverse merger deal that the operators said created the largest casino and entertainment business in the US.last_img read more

RIP: The Rev. Canon Kenneth J.G. Semon

first_img Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Comments (1) August 5, 2016 at 6:09 pm I remember Fr. Semon from my days in New Mexico when I was discerning my call to ordained ministry. We had occasion to meet in St. Louis, Missouri when we were at a conference on the church’s future. I knew him as a man of prayer, insight, and wisdom. This news saddens me beyond measure. Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Featured Jobs & Calls Rector Martinsville, VA Director of Music Morristown, NJ Rector Belleville, IL Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH By James L. OvertonPosted Aug 5, 2016 Rector Hopkinsville, KY Rector Smithfield, NC Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Course Director Jerusalem, Israel The Rev. Canon Kenneth J.G. Semon[Episcopal Diocese of the Rio Grande] The Rev. Canon Kenneth J.G. Semon, 70, died July 28, 2016, from injuries sustained two days earlier in an 18-mile road biking accident near his home.He was a certified skiing instructor, a Ph.D. in English literature who quoted Shakespeare and translated Aramaic and Greek in gripping and erudite 10-minute homilies. He humbly followed without pretense the examples of St. Francis of Assisi, ministering to the needs of the homeless and advocating for those left behind. He mentored those on the pathway to priesthood.He loved great music and quietly brought one of Santa Fe’s acclaimed music groups to a nurturing home. He liked to curl up in unstructured moments with an old-fashioned mystery. He looked forward to a retirement in England with children, grandchildren, and wife and best friend, Caroline.He had been the shepherd and spiritual leader of the Church of the Holy Faith since 2007, living, loving and leading by unequivocal example.“His prayer life was deep and disciplined,” observes the Rev.  Jim Gordon, who had followed Semon from acolyte, to deacon and then to the priesthood.“Father Ken loved to celebrate the Eucharist. For him, everything started at the altar. His faith, his teaching, his work in the community — all flowed from the remembrance of Christ’s death, resurrection and ascension.”Semon academic credentials followed his ministry, earning him the accolades of being “an excellent teacher and theologically focused preacher.“He lived life with passion, devotion and was totally committed to the gospel of Jesus Christ and the broader mission of God’s one holy, catholic and apostolic church,” said Bishop Michael Vono of the Diocese of the Rio Grande. “Ken was a very faithful priest serious about his pastoral work with all people and deeply spiritual. Having these gifts and also being a wonderful administrator is not always common among clergy. He had both.”Semon credited a parish of learners for being the driving force behind a variety of Bible-study classes, renewed interest in the spiritual classics, along with prayer groups, missionary outreach and being a role model for Episcopal churches in the diocese.He was one of 40 or so faith and community leaders who met after two particularly brutal Santa Fe winters, which saw about 50 deaths from hypothermia among the homeless. He set about working to find a permanent location for a homeless shelter, one ultimately purchased by the city and renovated. He could be seen frequently supervising admittance or serving hot meals to the hundreds of homeless seeking solace on winter nights.“The shelter relies on the City of Santa Fe and the generosity of Santa Fe faith and community groups, but Father Semon was one of a handful of individuals without which it would not exist,” said Holy Faith parishioner Guy Gronquist, a former chairman and current member of the board.“He loved God, the church and people, and he loved celebrating Mass and serving the needs of the poor in Santa Fe,” Vono said.When Santa Fe’s acclaimed Desert Chorale urgently needed a home for their artful voices, Fr. Ken urged the vestry to open the doors of unused space in Conkey House to the group for a modest fee.In 2015, Vono chose Semon to be one of his diocesan canons for ecumenical affairs. He was also elected chair of the diocesan Standing Committee and was a reader of the General Ordination Examinations. He was also a mentor to clergy new to the priesthood or to Holy Faith.Semon came to the Church of the Holy Faith as a temporary “priest in charge” late in 2007. After serving as interim priest in the parish, the church vestry, in an unprecedented display of solidarity, voted unanimously to make him rector.He was born into a Jewish family in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and was Bar Mitzvah’ed at age 13. He converted to Christianity in his early 30s.He had earned a Ph.D. in English literature and taught at the University of Kentucky before attending Seabury-Western Theological Seminary in Chicago and becoming a priest.The Semons came to Holy Faith from Christ Church in Paradise Valley, Arizona, where he was the rector for some nine years. He had been rector of other Episcopal parishes in Sturgis, Michigan, El Paso, Texas, and St. Louis, Missouri. He had also served as a curate in Lake Forest, Ilinois, and was an assisting priest in Vail, Colorado.Before coming to Holy Faith as priest-in-charge during a time of parish upheaval, the Semons had contemplated retirement, built a home in Taos, and he planned to turn his recreational energy into his love of skiing and teaching at Taos Ski Valley (where he could nearly always be found once a week during the season.) In warmer weather, Semon kept in shape and close to nature by road biking, a sport made even more gratifying after knee replacement surgery in 2011.In addition to his wife, Caroline, Semon is survived by children Jennifer Muller (husband Adrian), Bristol, England; Kathy Johnston (husband Bill), Chicago, Illinois; Jeffrey Semon (wife Anne) San Jose, California; stepson Scott Maynard, Frankfurt, Kentucky; grandchildren Eleanor and Gabriel Muller; C.J., Allie, and Rusty Johnston; and Caitlyn and Kyra Semon.— James L.

The editor of the privately-owned bimonthly Umurabyo, she was first arrested in 2007 and sentenced to two years in prison on charges of inciting civil disobedience, promoting division and genocide denial. After serving her sentence, she went back to work without submitting to the regime or heeding the High Media Council’s warnings. Barely a year later, she was back in court again just for doing her job to report the news. Convicted of defamation, this time she got a 17-year jail sentence –extremely harsh but not as extreme as the 33-year sentence sought by the prosecutor. With her health declining fast, the supreme court cut her sentence to four years in April 2012, a falsely generous reduction that falls far short of her release and the quashing of her conviction, which press freedom groups are demanding.
