communications pursuant to Rule 425 under the Securities Act (17 CFR
On January 21, 2009, Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc. (the “Company”) received a letter from the Executive Director of the Missouri Gaming Commission (the “MGC”) stating that at the MGC’s meeting on January 27, 2010, the MGC staff will recommend that the casino license for the Company’s President Casino be revoked and the casino discontinue operations as of July 1, 2010. The letter stated that the MGC is no longer able to allow licensure of what it believes to be an obsolete and underachieving gaming facility. On January 22, 2010, the Company filed a petition with the Missouri Court of Appeals, Western District, seeking a stay of the MGC’s proceedings. This decision by the MGC does not affect either Lumiére Place or our River City facility in St. Louis County, which we expect to open in March 2010.
A copy of the letter from the Executive Director of the MGC is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report.
Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
