Philippine casino’s Nasdaq listing still possible this year-CEO

September 14, 2022 Philippines Casino & HotelIndustry Updates

The Philippines’ largest casino could still complete a $2.5 billion merger and listing in the United States late this year, with audits and talks progressing after a management dispute, the CEO of a blank-check company pursuing the listing said.

The Nasdaq debut of the Okada Manila integrated casino-resort through 26 Capital Acquisition Corp (ADER.O) was agreed in October last year, but has faced several delays because of a feud between shareholders.

“Our company is planning to move full-steam ahead with Universal Entertainment Corp (6425.T) to list Okada Manila,” Jason Ader, chairman and CEO of 26 Capital, told Reuters late on Tuesday. “It is possible we can do it this year.”

The $3.3 billion Okada Manila is owned by subsidiaries of Japan’s Universal.

In May, Japanese pachinko tycoon Kazuo Okada and his Filipino associates had taken physical control of the casino-resort, backed by a Supreme Court order.

Representatives of Universal early this month secured a favourable ruling from the gaming regulator and took back control over the operations of the gambling resort.

The camp of Okada and his Filipino partners had after the takeover accused the regulator of defying the Supreme Court and pledged legal action. His camp did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
