eine info die ich über china online gefunden habe:
China Sci-Tech shareholders have approved the proposed acquisition of 32.82 per cent of China Online (Bermuda) for $840 million.
The acquisition was expected to be completed by December 31, executive director Chang Wang said after the shareholders` meeting.
The company would work out a detailed investment
plan for China Online after the completion of the deal,he said.
Market rumours suggest China Sci-Tech, in which Macau casino operator Stanley Ho is the largest shareholder with 16.5 per cent, planned to use China Online for an on-line casino operation.
Meanwhile, yesterday`s shareholders` meeting also approved the open offer of about 1.55 billion shares and the placement of 947.92 million new shares to raise about $490 million.
nalysts said after the open offer and placement, Mr Ho`s holding in the company could rise to as much as 24.12 per cent
interessant in diesem zusammenhang ist, daß stanley ho das quasi-monool über die casino-szene in macao besitzt (hat die lizenz). diese lizenz läuft 2001 aus. die spekulationen gehen nun in die richtung, daß sich über den einkauf in china online eben über das internet ein neues gambling-standbein zulegt.
