Eldorado Resorts, Inc., which owns and operates Scioto Downs, has announced that it has reached a deal to purchase Isle of Capri Casinos, Inc., which owns and operates Pompano Park in south Florida.

The deal was announced via release on Monday, September 19. The announcement states that ‘Eldorado will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Isle of Capri for $23.00 in cash or 1.638 shares of Eldorado common stock, at the election of each Isle of Capri shareholder, reflecting total consideration of approximately $1.7 billion, inclusive of $929 million of long-term debt of Isle of Capri and its subsidiaries.’

“We intend to implement our strategy of focusing on margin enhancement and customer service and experiences across the portfolio by marrying best practices from both companies,” Eldorado Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Gary Carano was quoted as saying.

“Led by our proven gaming, hotel management and food and beverage teams with a long-term record of operating execution and M&A integration, we believe that Eldorado Resorts will be positioned for long-term success. Combining the assets, management, personnel, operations and other resources of these two organizations is expected to create substantial near- and long-term synergies."

The release goes on to state that the transaction has been unanimously approved by the Boards of Directors of both Eldorado Resorts, Inc. and Isle of Capri Casinos, Inc. The transaction is subject to approval of the stockholders of Eldorado Resorts and Isle of Capri, the approval of applicable gaming authorities, the expiration of the applicable Hart-Scott-Rodino waiting period and other customary closing conditions, and is expected to be consummated in the second quarter of 2017.
