Melco PBL Entertainment Limited announces name change to Melco Crown Entertainment Limited

(Macau).- The developer and owner of casino gaming and entertainment resort facilities, Melco PBL Entertainment (Macau) Limited, announced that its shareholders passed a resolution at its Annual General Meeting to change the name of the company to Melco Crown Entertainment Limited (MPEL), effective immediately.


he name change reflects a previously announced change in the ownership structure of one of its founding shareholders. On December 12, 2007, Publishing and Broadcasting Limited (now known as Consolidated Media Holdings Limited) (PBL’) completed a demerger of its gaming and media businesses into two separate companies, both listed on the Australian Stock Exchange.

The demerger was achieved by two concurrent shareholder-approved and court-approved Schemes of Arrangement under Australian Corporations Law.

As a result of the demerger, Crown Limited (Crown) became the owner of the gaming assets of PBL including PBL’s shares in MPEL.

Crown is a top-50 company listed on the Australian Stock Exchange and led by Executive Chairman James Packer, who is also a Co-Chairman of MPEL.
