Australia’s Federal Court has officially approved the $8.9 billion takeover bid of Crown Resorts

Australia’s Federal Court has approved US company Blackstone‘s $8.9 billion offer to take over Crown Resorts.

The acquisition is set to give James Packer a $3.36 billion pay day for his 37 per cent share. 

Packer has been involved with the troubled casino business since 1999.

It means Crown will become a private company and no longer be listed on the Australian Stock Exchange. 

Crown has been plagued by scandals including inquiries detailing money laundering and links to criminal gangs.
