MGM Resorts said on Oct. 12 it had received an offer to sell its stake in the property and would receive proceeds of $250 million. As the managing partner in the joint venture, Boyd had the right to match the offer, reportedly made by Los Angeles-based private equity firm Leonard Green & Partners.
Boyd Gaming also reported the company's third quarter earnings were $5.6 million, or 6 cents a share, for the period that ended Sept. 30. A year ago, the Las Vegas-based company had net earnings of $6.3 million, or 7 cents a share.
The company's quarterly revenue in the quarter was $595.4 million, a decline of 4.1 percent.
