Melco would be the managing partner of sm on the belle casino resort but i heard melco is also interested in setting up their own casino complex. I feel they arent that 100% convinced on the feasibility of huge casino operations in the country so that they partnered first with sm to test the waters so to speak.

MANILA, Philippines - Henry Sy's Belle Corp. sealed a deal with Australian billionaire James Packer and Macau gambling tycoon Lawrence Ho to jointly develop a $1-billion casino in Manila.

Belle, whose parent company is SM Investments, will be working with Packer and Ho through their joint venture casino operator Melco Crown Entertainment (MCE). Ho is the son of Macau gaming mogul Stanley Ho.

In a statement sent out Thursday night, SM Investments said it signed on July 5 a "Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with Macau-based Melco Crown Entertainment group of companies for a collaborative partnership in the development and operation of Belle’s integrated resort complex at Aseana Boulevard, Parañaque."

"Belle has agreed to join with MCE under a new consortium to create a premiere integrated resort complex," SM Investments said.

"Subject to PAGCOR requirements, Belle and MCE plan to create a US$1 billion premiere integrated resort facility and enter into implementing and definitive agreements within the next two months," the company added.

MCE is the owner and operator of the resort complex in Macau known as “City of Dreams."

Belle holds one of four licenses handed out by the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. (Pagcor) to build a casino worth at least $1 billion each at the Entertainment City in Manila Bay, Parañaque.

It's sealed: Packer, Ho and Sy in Manila casino venture

by Rappler.com | Thursday | Posted on 07/05/2012 6:49 PM | Updated 07/05/2012 9:53 PM



MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) - Casino billionaires James Packer and Lawrence Ho are now on board with the group of the Philippines' richest man Henry Sy for a $1-billion gaming venture in Manila.

On Thursday, July 5, Belle Corp, a unit of Sy's SM Investments Corp, signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with Melco Crown Entertainment for the development of a casino and entertainment resort within the 120-hectare Entertainment City of state-run Pagcor that will rise on a reclaimed area along Manila Bay and near the Manila airport.

"Belle has agreed to join MCE (Melco) under a new consortium to create a premier integrated resort complex," SM Investments Corp announced in a statement.

Ho, son of casino mogul Stanley Ho, and Australian billionaire Packer, co-own Melco.

Under the MOA, the parties will "negotiate in good faith and sign upon the satisfaction of various conditions within 60 days a consortium agreement, which will include the agreed form of certain implementing agreements for the leasing, development, operation and management" of the project, Melco said in a disclosure to the Nasdaq stock market.

Melco said the consortium agreement is conditional upon the project's registration with the Philippine Economic Zone Authority as a tourism economic zone, which will be subject to tax incentives and other perks.

"The MOA is legally binding. On signing of the consortium agreement, the MOA shall terminate and be superseded," the company's disclosure read.

Melco, whose flagship project is the famous City of Dreams, is a developer of casino and entertainment facilities in Macau, the world's gambling mecca.

Casino partnerships

In the casino business, providing different gaming destinations for the high-roller clients is the name of the game.

Casino investors have been setting up a network of casinos in different locations -- often in different countries -- to offer their prized clients something and some place new.

Belle was initially considering partnering with US-based Harrah's Entertainment, the world's largest casino operator. However, talks failed in 2010, prompting Belle to tap local public company Leisure & Resorts World Corp (LRWC) instead.

There's no mention of LRWC in SM Investment's and Melco's announcements.

Construction of Belle's Belle Grande Manila Bay in the Entertainment City is currently in full swing. It is expected to hold its grand opening in the first quarter of 2013.

Other Pagcor licensees

The Belle-Melco group are up against 3 other groups also awarded licenses to build and operate casino-tourism complexes in the Pagcor gaming hub.

The biggest player so far is Japan's Universal Entertainment Corp led by controversial pachinco billionaire Kazuo Okada.

Okada's group said they will invest $2 billion in a casino-hotel project set for completion by 2014.

Okada and his partner-turned-foe, Steve Wynn, have several Wynn Resorts in Macau.

The other players include Philippine tycoon Andrew Tan's Alliance Global Group, which has a joint venture with Genting Bhd of Malaysia.

The last is Bloomberry Investments, which is led by fast-rising billionaire and global port operator Enrique Razon Jr.

Gaming to boost PH growth

The Philippine government wants to accelerate construction of the casinos, which it expects will trump those in Las Vegas and Singapore in the next 4 years.

Pagcor chairman Cristino Naguiat earlier said that revenues from Entertainment City are expected to hit $10 billion by 2016, when all 4 locators start full operations.

Boosting the casino industry will also help the country meet its goal of increasing tourists, who will spend not only for gaming, but other leisure and entertainment activities.

Naguiat said Pagcor's project can accommodate an additional one million tourists, one-tenth of the government's target of 10 million by 2016. - Rappler.com

Tycoons Sy, Packer, Ho team up for casino in Manila

by Farah Master and Erik dela Cruz | ABS-CBN News (Reuters) | Posted at 07/06/2012 9:31 AM | Updated as of 07/06/2012 9:48 AM

Deal brings together Macau's Melco, Philippine's Belle

HONG KONG/MANILA - Macau casino Melco Crown and Philippine leisure firm Belle Corp signed a conditional deal to develop a $1 billion casino-hotel that will see some of Asia's biggest tycoons team up in Manila, touted as a promising new gambling market.

Melco, owned by Australian billionaire James Packer and Hong Kong businessman Lawrence Ho, will join forces with the Philippines' wealthiest man, Henry Sy, who controls Belle to jointly develop and manage the hotel set to rise in a more than 100-hectare gaming complex.

The companies said on Thursday an agreement was set to be finalised within the next two months.

Melco will invest no more than $580 million using cash, cash flow and debt financing to help fund the casino resort, the company said in a statement.

A loan facility of $320 million may also be made available to help finance the project, Melco said.

It will be the first time for Melco to venture into the Philippines as it has focused on Macau, the world's top gambling market, where it is waiting final approval to build a casino resort.

The $12 billion company is one of six licensed operators in Macau where the pace of casino expansion is tightly controlled by the government.

"The expansion into new jurisdictions where the company expects strong returns on capital will further diversify the company's exposure in Asia," Melco said.

Macau's gambling revenue growth has dropped significantly in the past two months, hitting a near 3-year low in May while June's figure was weaker than expected.

Analysts are optimistic on the Philippines' future growth despite a broader slowdown in the global economy. Locals are legally allowed to gamble in the Philippines, creating a much larger pool of customers than in markets such as Vietnam where casino gambling is restricted to foreign passport holders.

CLSA predicts gambling revenue in the Philippines will grow from US$1.3 billion in 2011 to US$3 billion in 2015 once three new resorts are completed.

MANILA, VIETNAM, AUSTRALIA

Casino expansion across Asia is mushrooming with Vietnam also due to open a new casino resort in 2013 and markets such as Taiwan and South Korea consider legalising gambling.

James Packer's Australian casino group Crown Ltd and Southeast Asia's largest gambling group Genting have both been raising their stakes in Sydney casino operator Echo Entertainment.

Belle plans to build an integrated entertainment resort complex called Belle Grande Manila Bay, which features a 30,000-square-metre casino in a developing gaming and retail destination known as Entertainment City in Manila.

Three other casino licensees are set to operate in the sprawling gaming area by the Manila Bay, a project of state regulator Philippine Amusement & Gaming Corp, or Pagcor.

The biggest of the four projects is a $2 billion casino-hotel complex being built by a unit of Japan's Universal Entertainment Corp set for completion in 2014.

The two other developers are Bloomberry Resorts Corp of Filipino billionaire Enrique Razon and the joint venture between Genting Hong Kong Ltd and Alliance Global Group .

Bloomberry has hired Las Vegas-based Global Gaming Asset Management to operate its $1 billion Solaire Manila casino-hotel complex, construction of which will be completed next year.

Belle sees Melco tieup to open overseas gaming opportunities

by Miguel R. Camus | Business Mirror | Sunday | 08 July 2012 | 20:25

BEYOND gaining expertise and a financial boost, Belle Corp. is also betting that its partnership with Macau-based casino-resort operator Melco Crown Entertainment will pave the way for its entry into gaming markets overseas.

Belle vice chairman Willy Ocier said following the announcement on the tieup with Melco that the company is “thinking about” investing in markets like Macau should it succeed in its initial venture through Belle Grande Manila Bay. The Belle Grande projected will be situated in the Entertainment City complex within the Manila Bay reclamation site.

“It’s all about synergy,” Ocier said in a text message. “Our partners are heavyweights in Macau and Australia. This collaboration opens up so many opportunities for our group.”

The move is similar to plans by businessman Enrique Razon Jr., who’s group is also involved in a project at the Entertainment City. He earlier revealed his intention for Bloomberry Resorts Corp. to eventually invest in overseas gaming hubs like Macau or other areas that open up.

While far from being a definitive strategy at this point for Belle or any local gaming operator, analysts said investing overseas remains an attractive prospect. Macau, for instance, took in gaming revenues of $33.4 billion last year, versus the Philippines’s $1.3 billion.

“It is possible for Belle to [invest abroad] and this has its potential rewards,” Jose Lacson, head of research at stock brokerage firm Campos Lanuza and Co., said before the deal was announced. “But like Bloomberry, they have to make sure their Philippine venture works before any expansion outside.”

Belle Grande is expected to be the second casino development to open in Entertainment City next year after Bloomberry’s Solaire Resort and Casino, which is targeting to open in the first quarter.

Hong Kong-listed Melco Crown is one of six companies granted concessions or sub concessions to operate casinos in Macau, its website showed. It is a joint venture between James Packer, a billionaire at the helm of Australian integrated resorts operator Crown Ltd., and Lawrence Ho, son of Macau’s “The King of Gambling” Stanley Ho.

The company’s portfolio includes City of Dreams, an integrated casino resort, and the upcoming Studio City project, both located along the Cotai Strip, which is Macau’s response to the famed Las Vegas Strip in Nevada.

Meanwhile, Belle’s operating partner Leisure and Resorts World Corp. (LRWC) disclosed on Friday that an earlier-signed memorandum of agreement will be amended to facilitate the entry of Melco Crown, which plans to invest up to $580 million in the venture.

The extent of the revisions weren’t made clear in the disclosure but Belle said it expects to enter into implementing and definitive agreements with Melco Crown in the next two months.

Belle shares dropped 4.81 percent to P5.14 each while LRWC sank almost 8 percent to P8.50 per share on Friday.

Belle is the last licensee in Entertainment City to announce a partnership with a foreign gaming group.

Andrew Tan-led Alliance Global Group Inc. has already partnered with Malaysia’s Genting Group for their joint venture Travellers International Hotel Group Inc., which operates the existing Resorts World Manila, while Bloomberry tapped Global Gaming Philippines Llc., which is comprised of veteran casino executives from Las Vegas and Macau. The fourth licensee is a unit of Universal Entertainment Corp.

‘Improved’ Belle Grande to open by end-2013

by Doris C. Dumlao | Philippine Daily Inquirer | Monday | July 9th, 2012 | 2:08 am

Belle Grande, the entertainment complex rising as a partnership between Macau casino giant Melco Crown Entertainment and the SM Group, is set to open its doors to the public under an amended consortium framework by the end of 2013.
The longer wait for the opening of the establishment was due to the entry of Melco, which plans to invest up to $580 million in the $1-billion project.

Belle vice chairman Willy Ocier said in a text message that the grand opening would happen by the fourth quarter of 2013.

“Melco will improve on our design and concepts,” Ocier said.

If Belle Grande opens by the end of 2013, it will thus be the second complex to open in this area, groomed by the Philippine Amusement & Gaming Corp. (Pagcor) as an entertainment hub after Solaire Manila of tycoon Enrique Razon Jr., who leads Bloomberry Resorts Corp.

Belle’s casino was originally a partnership between Belle and Leisure & Resorts World Corp. (LR). Leisure & Resorts World and its operators originally were supposed to lease the premises from Belle.

Pagcor, however, issued a requirement that an 800-room hotel portfolio must be up and running before the casino itself can start operations.

Belle and subsidiary Premium Leisure and Amusement Inc. agreed to negotiate and sign within 60 days a consortium agreement with Melco for the leasing, development, operation and management of certain parcels of land, including the development of the building structure and shell of a grand casino and hotel complex.

The execution of the consortium agreement is conditional upon the registration of the project site as a tourism economic zone by the Philippine Economic Zone Authority, Melco said.

MPEL Projects, a company based on the British Virgin Islands, or an affiliated party will now operate the gaming and non-gaming operations as lessee.

The signing of the agreement happened shortly after the men behind Melco—Australian billionaire James Packer and Lawrence Ho, son of gaming tycoon Stanley Ho—visited the country last week.

Melco, through subsidiary Melco Crown Gaming (Macau) Ltd., is one of only six companies granted concessions or sub-concessions to operate casinos in Macau.

Its flagship project, “City of Dreams,” is an integrated urban entertainment resort with stylish nightclubs, 1,400 luxury guest rooms, chic dining, designer brand shopping, a contemporary casino and the The House of Dancing Water.

Belle Grande, the integrated tourism-gaming complex, is being constructed on more than six hectares of land at the Aseana Business Park in Parañaque City.

It was designed to have a total gaming area of 1.8 hectares surrounded by food and beverage outlets and luxury retail stores.

Macau firm to sink $580 M in gambling venture with SM

by Doris C. Dumlao | Philippine Daily Inquirer | Friday, July 6th, 2012 | 1:00 pm


HENRY SY SR.. INQUIRER file photo

MANILA, Philippines—Macau casino giant Melco Crown Entertainment has committed to invest up to $580 million in a Philippine entertainment complex as a strategic partner of tycoon Henry Sy, becoming the single largest investor in a “world-class” entertainment complex jumpstarted by Belle Corp.

In a disclosure in Hong Kong Thursday night, Melco announced that its wholly owned subsidiary MPEL Projects Ltd. had entered into a memorandum of agreement with SM group, Belle and Belle’s subsidiary PremiumLeisure and Amusement Inc. (PLAI).

They agreed to negotiate in good faith and sign within 60 days a consortium agreement on certain implementing agreements for the leasing, development, operation and management of certain parcels of land located in the Philippines, including the further development of the building structure and shell of a grand casino and hotel complex into a “world-class casino, hotel, retail and entertainment complex.”

The execution of the consortium agreement is conditional upon registration of the project site as a tourism economic zone by the Philippine Economic Zone Authority, Melco said. British Virgin Islands-based MPEL Projects or an affiliated party will operate the gaming and non-gaming operations as lessee, the disclosure said.

“MPEL Projects’ total investment over the course of the project is expected to be no more than $580 million, contributed by a combination of cash, cash flow and debt financing. It is expected that a loan facility of approximately $320 million may be made available to MPEL Projects to part finance the project,” it noted.

The disclosure said the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. had issued a provisional license to the consortium and intends to issue a regular casino gaming license upon satisfaction of certain conditions referred to in the provisional License. MPEL Projects shall also be included as a member-licensee of the provisional license.

Under the terms of the provisional license, Pagcor requires the consortium to make a minimum investment of $650 million at the start of commercial operations and a total of $1 billion for the entire project.

The execution of the consortium agreement is conditional upon registration of the project site as a tourism economic zone by the Philippine Economic Zone Authority.

“The company, while currently solely focused on Macau, actively evaluates future expansion opportunities throughout Asia, particularly given the region’s expected economic growth and further development of its leisure and tourism industries. Asia is widely regarded as the fastest-growing gaming region in the world, as evidenced by the size and growth of Macau’s gaming market,” Melco said.

The success of Macau as a gaming and entertainment destination , Melco noted, had led to the proliferation of gaming across the Asia Pacific region, driving the development of casino, hotel, entertainment and retail resorts, as recently illustrated in Singapore.

Melco noted that the Philippines was a popular tourist destination in Southeast Asia and closely located to a range of important tourism markets, including South Korea, Taiwan, Japan and China. In 2011, the Philippines Department of Tourism recorded 3.9 million visiting tourists. While South Koreans and Americans are the largest tourist groups, China continues to contribute a greater share of visitors to the Philippines.

“The expansion into new jurisdictions where the company expects strong returns on capital will further diversify the company’s exposure in Asia, delivering incremental sources of earnings and cash flow and providing the company with a larger platform for further expansion and opportunities to drive shareholder value,” the disclosure said.

Melco sees its experience in developing world-class integrated resorts such as the City of Dreams in Macau to allow it to take advantage of the anticipated growth in the leisure and tourism industries in the Philippines. The disclosure said the Philippine complex would “cater to an increasingly affluent and growing Asian middle class who continue to seeking new travel destinations and experiences.”

I think they're just talking about MPEL and Melco's expansion outside of Macau. We're lucky they decided to plunk their 1st offshore investment in the Philippines. They could've easily just picked Singapore or Malaysia and the others.

Kailangan lang talaga magka-momentum yung PAGCOR City para ma-establish na legit gaming center siya like Macau at once na manyari yon tiyak na investments will snowball even more. Siyempre hindi magpapahuli yung ibang companies kung umulan ng gambling money dito. Critical talaga yung success ng mga unang establishments na itatayo at mago-operate (like Solaire).

Yun nga lang wala pa rin attractions. Tapos yung isa diyan Condo's kaagad ang inatupag.

MORE FUN EXPANDING IN ASIA; PH vital cog of Pacific gaming hub

by Albert Castro | Malaya | Monday | 09 July 2012

The world’s largest gaming investors see the Philippines as a vital part of the Pacific gaming hub that will sustain the success of their current investments in Macau. Macau gaming firm Melco Crown Entertainment Ltd said it will invest as much as $580 million (P25 billion ) in the Sy-led casino project, Belle Grande Manila Bay at Pagcor City.

Soon a $320 million loan will be made available to the project. All the funding, however, will depend on the government’s registration of the project site as a tourism economic zone. This will provide the project additional tax breaks.

The Belle Grande project is a $1 billion gaming complex rising at the government’s Bagong Nayon Entertainment Complex in Pasay City, commonly known as Pagcor City.

Melco, led by the Ho Family and Australian James Packer , in a disclosure with the Hong Kong Stock Exchange and the NASDAQ explained that the investment in the Philippines will enable it to expand faster in Asia.

The gaming moguls see Asia as the fastest –growing gaming region in the world. Melco cited as example Macau, where the company is currently focused.

Melco said Asia’s expected economic growth and further development of its leisure and tourism industries provide big opportunities.

It sees the Philippines catering to an increasingly affluent and growing Asian middle class who will be eager to check what the gaming and entertainment complex can offer.

Melco noted that the success of the Macau gaming and entertainment industry has to the proliferation of gaming hubs across Asia Pacific. It also noted that the Philippines being a popular tourist destination in Southeast Asia is an important link to the tourism markets of South Korea, Taiwan, Japan, and China.

In 2011, the Department of Tourism recorded 3.9 million visiting tourists. While South Koreans and Americans are the largest tourist groups, China continues to contribute a greater share of visitors to the Philippines..

Meanwhile, SM Investments Corp. said it will join MCE under a new consortium to handle the complex. Melco Crown Entertainment Limited (MCE) is the owner and operator of the resort complex in Macau known as “City of Dreams”. MCE was initially formed as a joint venture of Melco International Development Limited of Hong Kong and Crown Limited of Australia, SM Investments said.

Subject to PAGCOR requirements, Belle and MCE plan to create a $1 billion premiere integrated resort facility and enter into implementing and definitive agreements within the next two months,” it added.

Belle Corp. is an affiliate of SM Investments Corp.

Willy Ocier, Belle Corp. vice-chairman, in a message to Malaya Business Insight said the investment of the biggest Macau-gaming firm will represent about “50 percent” of EBITDA “after rentals” of the gaming complex designed to have more than 250,000 square meters of gross floor area, including approximately 20,000 square meters of gaming space with a capacity to hold 1,600 slot machines, 300-320 tables.

It will also have 6,000 sq. m. of VIP gaming areas, and six hotel towers with 1,000 rooms, divided into three brands.

Belle Grande Manila Bay forms part of a cluster of casino operations to rise in the PAGCOR City, estimated to bring in $15 billion in investment through the gaming industry.

Belle earlier committed to invest as much as $1 billion in the project which will be composed of six hotel towers, and the gaming area, initially tapping local online gaming operator Leisure and Resorts World, Corp., to be its operator.

Construction of Belle Grande began in early 2010 and is currently in full swing.
