Ltd. (“CAI”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Crown Resorts Limited, pursuant to which MCE agreed to repurchase 155,000,000 ordinary shares (equivalent to 51,666,666 ADS) from CAI. The aggregate purchase price for the Share Repurchase is US$800,838,500 (equivalent to approximately HK$6,206,498,000), representing a per share price of US$5.1667 (equivalent to approximately HK$40.04) (or US$15.50 (equivalent to approximately HK$120.13) per ADS).

Immediately following closing of the Share Repurchase, the equity interests of Melco and public shareholders in MCE will be increased to approximately 37.9% and 34.7% respectively, while CAI’s equity interest in MCE will be reduced from 34.3% to approximately 27.4%. Accordingly, Melco will become the single largest shareholder of MCE, which will fully bolster the Group’s financial position by incorporating MCE’s full financial contributions. Mr. Lawrence Ho will be re-designated as Chairman, and will continue to be the executive director and Chief Executive Officer of MCE.

Mr. Lawrence Ho, Group Chairman and CEO of Melco, said: “This is a tremendous milestone for Melco. The transaction will meaningfully strengthen Melco’s financial position through incorporating MCE’s full financial contributions into the Group’s portfolio as an accounting subsidiary. It demonstrates Melco’s positive outlook for Macau’s long term future. It will also enhance the Group’s overall portfolio of high-quality assets and facilitate our efforts in realizing Melco’s global expansion vision.”

In mid-March this year, Melco, together with other members of a multinational consortium (Hard Rock International and Cyprus Phasouri (Zakaki) Limited), has been shortlisted to the next phase of the casino tender process in the Republic of Cyprus. With unique experience in creating the most spectacular integrated resorts in Asia, Melco is looking forward to continue exploring the emerging gaming jurisdiction and collaborating with the Cyprus Government for what it considers to be in the best interest of Cyprus.

The Cyprus premium integrated resort project, along with the Group’s latest business development in Spain, showcase Melco’s focus on further strengthening the Group’s presence in overseas markets to build a sustainable growth company.
