EGT Nevada Amends Tender Offer for Shares of Entertainment Gaming

NEW YORK, May 23, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EGT Nevada Holding Inc. (“EGT Nevada”) announced today that it and Melco International Development Limited (“Melco International”) have amended the previously announced tender offer (the “Offer”) for all of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock (the “Shares”) of Entertainment Gaming Asia Inc. (“Entertainment Gaming”) (NASDAQ:EGT) that are not currently owned by Melco International and its affiliates such that the consummation of the Offer is no longer conditioned upon any minimum number of Shares being tendered.  EGT Nevada will provide liquidity to any stockholder of Entertainment Gaming that would like to sell his, her or its Shares in the Offer.  As a result, EGT Nevada may consummate the Offer even if the Shares tendered represent (x) less than a majority of the issued and outstanding Shares excluding Shares owned by Melco International or its affiliates, and (y) less than 90% of outstanding Shares when combined with the Shares owned by Melco International and its affiliates.  If we consummate the Offer notwithstanding the fact that the Shares tendered represent less than 90% of outstanding Shares when combined with the Shares owned by Melco International and its affiliates, we will be unable to cause a short-form merger to be effectuated and may continue to operate Entertainment Gaming as a standalone company with Melco International and its affiliates continuing to own a controlling stake in Entertainment Gaming.
