Upon closing of the proposed transaction, the combined company will retain the ‘Wynn Interactive Ltd’ name, and relist its shares on the Nasdaq Stock Exchange, it was announced at the time.
It was separately announced on Thursday that Mr Billings had been reelected as a non-executive director of the board of Macau-based casino operator Wynn Macau Ltd. The latter is a subsidiary of Wynn Resorts.
