Re: Hart-Scott-Rodino Notification Exemption
Dear Ms. Clark-Coleman,
This confirms our conversation earlier today relating to the Hart-Scott-Rodino Notification requirement and HSR Rule Section 802.2(e).
I explained that my client intends to purchase a hotel which includes a detached casino, which casino is and shall continue to be operated by an unaffiliated third party, that the relationship between my client and the casino operator will be one of Landlord-Lessee, and that my client will not own any of the gaming assets.
You confirmed that the described transaction would be exempt from the HSR Notification requirements and Rule Section 802.2(e).
I would appreciate receiving from you your written confirmation that the described transaction would be exempt from the HSR Notification requirements and Rule Section 802. 2(e).
