Harrah’s Goes Public To Finish What They Started

Harrah’s announce that they are making up to $575 million in shares available to the public.  This is about 10% of the company.  The money is being raised in an effort to finish a few projects.

Harrah’s will use the proceeds to finish its 660-room Octavius Tower at Caesars Las Vegas, develop the LINQ retail and entertainment area next to the Flamingo on the Las Vegas Strip, and invest in the potential joint-venture development of two Ohio casinos with Rock Gaming LLC, the company said today in a U.S. regulatory filing.

I don’t think LINQ will actually be finished with this batch of funding.  I don’t think there’s enough money to get everything done.

Another 660 rooms in a market with too much room availability isn’t really needed but it will nice to see the Octavious Tower at Caesars Palace finally completed.
