Full House Resorts Inc., owner of Silver Slipper Casino and other properties, today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized management to put the company up for sale.
Here’s the statement:
“After its evaluation of strategic alternatives, the Board of Directors has determined that pursuing a sale of the Company is the best course of action to maximize stockholder value and is accordingly in the best interest of all stockholders.”
“The Company welcomes the dissident stockholder group to participate in the sale process. However, the Company does not believe that granting the dissident stockholder group effective control of the Company’s Board of Directors without the payment of a control premium will maximize stockholder value. In the meantime, the Company encourages stockholders not to support the disruptive and expensive process to call a special meeting initiated by the dissident stockholders.”
Full House owns, develops and manages gaming facilities throughout the country.
