SJM Holdings expects casino licence renewal for ten years

SJM Holdings expects authorities will extend its gaming licence beyond the current expiration date of June 26, 2022. It expects the extension won’t be for twenty years but for around ten years.

During an investor meeting, the company told Goldman Sachs the concession length would be longer than five years yet more limited than 20 years. The current city’s gaming laws state that licences can be extended for up to five years from the original 20-year term.
