Nasdaq-listed PokerTek Inc announced that the Nevada Gaming Commission has approved the application by Multimedia Games Holding Co Inc to acquire the company.
PokerTek in April said that it had entered into a definitive agreement and plan of merger with Multimedia Games. The latter agreed to acquire PokerTek at a price of US$1.35 per share in cash, for a total consideration of US$13 million.
The Nevada commission’s approval was the final regulatory step required to consummate the merger, PokerTek said in a statement on Friday. The two companies anticipate the merger will be completed on October 1.
U.S.-based PokerTek designs, manufactures and markets electronic table games, including the PokerPro product (pictured), an automated poker table.
