Bally’s Corporation, an industry giant, released the information about the draft registration statement on Form S-1 with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The draft is confidentially submitted, and it is related to the planned Bally’s resort and casino in Chicago, precisely, its ownership interests. The statement is related to the proposed initial public offering of Illinois casino.

The ownership interests of the Chicago residents:

Chicago’s residents will be able to get a stake in the ownership of the casino, according to the Host Community Agreement that had been signed between the city and Bally’s Chicago. The qualification requirements, among other things, included the ownership interests of the city’s residents.

However, additional details such as the price range, the number of interests, and the terms under which the interests will be signed are still unknown. It is expected that the solution that both parties can agree on will be found in the initial public offering, which is planned to be scheduled after the review process is completed. 

It’s still unclear if Bally’s plans on any transactions related to its new casino’s ownership interests, and the company doesn’t want to comment anything about it before the details are determined. 

Any mention of the possibility of buying any securities at the casino can’t be found in the press release. 

However, the included parties can’t decide anything upon the selling or buying of the ownership interests without consulting the registration requirements that are issued by the Securities Act of 1993, which is prescribed by the Rule 135 of the same Act.
