4 Ways the Caesars Entertainment Buyout Could Fall Apart By Travis Hoium, The Motley Fool July 5, 2019 at 1:13 pm When Caesars Entertainment (NASDAQ:CZR) late last month announced it was being acquired by Eldorado Resorts (NASDAQ:ERI), it was a bit of a shock for the gambling industry. Eldorado was a relatively minor player until it began its acquisition spree a few years ago, and Caesars is just starting to get back on its feet after the bankruptcy of its biggest operating unit. It should come as no surprise that Caesars investors cheered the buyout, but shareholders on other side of the deal haven’t been so happy. Eldorado’s shares have dropped nearly 10% and VICI Properties (NYSE:VICI), which is the Caesars-related REIT that will acquire $3.2 billion of real estate, has fallen slightly as well. If investors’ distaste deepens, it could put the deal in jeopardy. Here’s what could go wrong.
