The Irish Times has issued a report in its business section stating that local betting group Boylesports is endeavoring to take over Ladbrokes, the loss-making Irish retail business that has been placed under High Court protection from its creditors in order to allow it to restructure the business.
Ladbrokes has been attempting to employ a rescue plan for the loss-making chain with Ken Fennell of Deloitte, the examiner appointed by the High Court to oversea a rescue bid, preparing to close up to 60 of Ladbrokes 196 betting shops in the Republic and also cut approximately 250 jobs.
Despite the fact that the plan may involve some closures, the newspaper quotes sources who say that this plan offers creditors a much better deal.
Privately owned Boylesports has, however, approached the examiner and is currently in talks with him with regard to an alternative plan. Boyles first approached Fennel in late April, shortly after his appointment was confirmed by the High Court.
Although the proposals made by Boylesports are also likely to include closures of betting shops, it will involve offering better terms to creditors, which is chiefly made up of landlords, than the proposal that Ladbrokes has put on the table.
Several landlords are totally dissatisfied with the compensation proposals with one landlord revealing that he had only been offered a ludicrous amount of €12,000 to €24,000 on a lease on which €467,500 is due over the following five years. Yet another landlord claims that he has been offered compensation of €6.000 on a lease that had a five year life at a return of €275,000.
Boylesports will be required to get any bid past the Commission for Competition and Consumer Protection which could demand that Boylesports offloads certain outlets to another operator before being allowed to take over its rival.
According to John Boyle, the chief executive and founder of Boylesports, they are committed to ensuring that they have the best shops in the best locations for their customers. He also said that they have been very active in recent years in making sure that need is met and they remain open to opportunities as and when they arise.
Mississippi Representative Chuck Espy introduced Bill HB806 earlier this week in preparation for possible legalization of sports betting in his state. However, this depends entirely on whether or not New Jersey’s court battles to bypass the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act is successful or not.
The past few years has seen New Jersey locked in legal battles with the Department of Justice and the national sports leagues as it endeavors to get around the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, which restricts sports betting to only four US states.
Rep. Richard Bennett, the chairman of the state House Gaming Committee, said in an interview with the Sun-Herald newspaper on Monday that the immediate possibilities were remote for both online gambling and sports betting.
Last year Rep. Bennett assembled the Internet Gaming and Sports Betting Task Force which was led by Allen Godfrey, a Mississippi Gaming Commission Executive Director, asking for a study of the legal, financial and technical considerations of betting on sports and Internet gambling. The study was requested due to Mississippi’s declining land casino revenues over the past two years which was mainly due to competition from other states.
The Sun-Herald also quoted Bennett as saying that sports betting would definitely help the industry in Mississippi but that he noted that it was a state that was going to “sit back and watch” as the New Jersey litigation on PASPA progressed, and warned that Internet gambling in New Jersey generated only 10% of what it had predicted. Bennett also said that it is just too early for them to look at going to Internet gaming in Mississippi right now and that it would have to be conducted strictly within state boundaries as half the people in Mississippi do not have a computer or Internet access.
