The majority owner of Melco Resorts and Entertainment (Philippines) Corp, the operator of the City of Dreams casino resort in Manila, has postponed again its effort to take the company private.

MCO has already postponed the offer once before. The original offer price was PHP7.25 (US$0.13) a share.
Melco Resorts Philippines made last month a formal request to the Philippine Stock Exchange for delisting of its shares on that bourse.
