Far East Consortium International Limited (FEC) announced today that subsidiaries FEC Overseas Investment (UK) Limited (FEC OIL) and FEC Investment (US) Limited have entered a merger agreement with Trans World Corporation.
Upon closing, the proposed merger will see FEC Overseas Investment (UK) Limited and FEC Investment (US) Limited merge with and into Trans World Corporation. Trans World Corporation will continue as the surviving company and become a wholly owned subsidiary of FEC OIL.
With interests in property development, hotel operation and management, including Dorsett Hospitality International, FEC will pay up to US$42 million (HK$327.6 million) and will assume Trans World Corporation net debt, not exceeding $11.025 million, or HK$ 86.0 million, for the acquisition.
Mr. Chris HOONG, managing director of FEC said: “We are very excited about the transaction. Trans World Corporation has the best in class casino assets in the region with strong growth track record and improving operating efficiency. The recent regulatory changes in Czech Republic have provided the Group with further development opportunities.
The acquisition of Trans World Corporation is another strategic development in the European market for FEC and we believe it will produce synergistic benefits with our hospitality business. Trans World Corporation would add 5 hotel properties and 3 casinos to the Group’s portfolio and create good opportunities for the Group to expand its hospitality offering in Europe. The transaction will allow the Group to establish a gaming platform and will add an additional stream of steady recurring cash flow to the Group. ”
