Nevada Gold & Casinos announces merger agreement

18 September 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Nevada Gold & Casinos, Inc. today announced the signing of a definitive merger agreement with Maverick Casinos, LLC (“Maverick”). Under the terms of the merger agreement, Maverick will acquire all of the outstanding shares of the company’s common stock for $2.50 per share in cash, subject to certain minor adjustments. The transaction will result in the Company becoming a private company.

The Manager of Maverick is Eric Persson. An affiliate of Maverick owns the Wendover Nugget Hotel & Casino and Red Garter Hotel and Casino in Wendover, Nevada, along with various other assets.

Maverick intends to fund the transaction primarily with debt financing from Nevada State Bank plus equity financing from Maverick. The transaction is not subject to a financing condition.

William Sherlock, Chairman of Nevada Gold, said, “Our goal was to obtain the highest value in a sale of the Company. We believe the transaction announced today achieves our objective and provides immediate cash consideration for our shareholders.”

The transaction is subject to approval of a majority of the shareholders of Nevada Gold, the approval of applicable gaming authorities, completion of the sale of the Company’s Club Fortune casino in Henderson, Nevada, which is under contract, and other customary closing conditions. The companies expect the transaction to close by the end of 2018.

The Company’s Board of Directors has unanimously approved the merger agreement.
