This Case is aboutÂ FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT
PUBLICATION DATE: August 31, 2012 PRODUCT #: W12210-HCB-ENG
The case deals with the way the investment banker advising the chief financial officer of Melco Crown Entertainment Limited (MCEL), a casino and entertainment business located in Macau, proposes the business fund to two new gambling resorts now under construction. The development of these properties has ceased due to inadequate funds, and project timelines have began to be challenged. A choice about the most effective way to raise the required capital must be made immediately or MCEL might not have the ability to capitalize on the successful, growing gambling market in Macau. The guidance must consider both the immediate need to raise capital to get the jobs back on course in addition to the requirement for long term fiscal flexibility to make the most of future opportunities. The case considers various international and national choices to determine what best matches the needs of MCEL.
