Sun International inks R7.3bn deal
Sun City-owner Sun International has reached a deal to acquire casino and hotel group Peermont which values that company at about R7.3 billion.
It said the acquisition of Peermont, which owns Emperors Palace Resort, was a "unique opportunity" to build scale and acquire a "world-class and highly cash generative" business.
The Peermont group, which was established in 1995, operates 11 properties across SA and Botswana, as well as the online sports and entertainment betting site PalaceBet.
Sun International, valued at almost R11 billion on the JSE, operates four resorts and hotels in SA: the Maslow in Sandton, the Wild Coast Sun in the Eastern Cape, the Table Bay Hotel, and Sun City in the North West. It also operates nine urban casinos, with at least one in every province except Mpumalanga, with these including Carnival City in Gauteng and the Western Cape's GrandWest. It also has an online offering, SunBet.
Breaking down the purchase price, Sun International said this would be determined with reference to an enterprise value of R7.3 billion, though there are conditions, including profit expectations of the business. Sun International will also assume debt that stood at R4 billion at the end of June, which would increase its South African debt levels to over R13 billion. – Fin24
