Dealcast Asia: Melco buys Crown stake, Qunar's surprise ruling

Podcast Public M&A Asia-Pacific

In this weekly edition of Dealreporter Asia Pacific’s podcast, Stephanie Hanna and Anette Jönsson discuss key developments on several Asian situations, including comments by Malaysia’s prime minister indicating Australian rare earth producer Lynas [ASX:LYC] will be allowed to continue operating in the Southeast Asian country; and the potential implications of casino tycoon James Packer selling part of his stake in Crown Resorts [ASX:CWN] to Melco Resorts & Entertainment [NASDAQ:MLCO] less than two months after his talks with Wynn Resorts [NASDAQ:WYNN] were terminated following a leak. At the end of the podcast we reveal an unexpected judicial setback for the dissenting shareholders of Qunar’s take-private that could have implications for ongoing and future Section 238 fair value processes in Cayman.
