    ELRA - major Macau merger

    Elray Gaming Eyes Acquisition of Macau Gaming Company
    Last Updated: May 03, 2012 - 7:45am EST

    (NEW YORK) -(NEW YORK) -Elray Gaming, Inc, which is traded under the name Elray Resources, Inc (OTC:ELRA), continues to move ahead with its potential acquisition of Macau gaming company, Golden Match, which could give the stock a minimum price valuation of $0.10 per share.

    Elray Gaming announced a ‘binding letter of intent’ to acquire Golden Match, who’s principal business activity is to hold a profit share agreement with a VIP Room Gaming Promoter, the terms of which they receive 80% of the profit stream from the Promoters, which currently participates in the promotion of many major luxury VIP gaming facilities in Macau, China, the largest gaming market in the world.

    The company has negotiated a profit sharing agreement with Cali Promocao de Jogos Sociedade Unipessoal Lda. (CALI), a company duly incorporated under the laws of the Special Administrative Region of Macau, and promotes Casinos in Macau SAR pursuant to a license issued by the Gaming Inspection and Coordination of Bureau of the Government of Macau SAR.

    Over the past 5 months, CALI generated approximately $17 million (US) profit after tax.

    Taking that $17 million profit into consideration, a rough fiscal year net profit for CALI would be in the range around $37 million, after taxes. If given a 80% profit sharing bases, that would give Golden Match, and thus ELRA, a yearly net profit of around $29.6 million,

    ELRA currently has around 700 million shares issued and outstanding, but for the sake of closing the merger, and estimating for dilution to close the deal, even at 3 billion shares issued and outstanding, that would still give ELRA an EPS estimate of around $0.01 EPS.

    Based on the value estimates of other publicly traded Macau gaming companies, a conservative PE of 10 to 15 would still give ELRA a post merger estimate of $0.10 to $0.15 per share, or a conservative $300 million post-merger market capitalization, which would reflect a sharp % return from its current $0.004 share price.

    From all indications, movement on this merger continues to move forward with talks showing possible institutional interest, which could help turn this letter of intent into a full blown major merger.

    Cali currently has agreements in place are with MGM Grand Macao, a division of MGM Resorts International (NYSE:MGM), the Venetian, Wynn Resorts, Limited (NASDAQ:WYNN), Galaxy Entertainment Group Limited (HKG: 0027), and City of Dreams.
