    What's not to like $35 stock to $90 stock since covid scare in March crash the key is they just divested and got a lot of cash for reinvestment they basically are concentrating on one aspect of their business and taking the money and gave up the lottery concept for digital enhancement in every area they can reach buy Acquisitions Partnerships Adventures sounds dangerous, in

    hmmm... looks interesting. A bit of an overreaction, imo.. these guys clearly know what theyre doing.. the money will pay down debt, among other things.. and the future of gambling is not in lottery... young people will be gambling and gaming in other ways... the mkt may not like it right now.. but imo its the right decision

    Hate to be the one(s) that shorted this baby. Closed at $82.95. My guess is it will hit mid to upper $90's.

    What most of you are missing is SGMS presence in Canada and single event sports betting as well as their expansion into online slots.

    Institutional investors buy controlling (though a bit less than 50% stake) from controlling individual shareholder at a huge premium. However, the price for this stake was about the size of annual interest expense of SGMS. Moreover, they seem to not accumulating the stocks prior the transaction at 30% discount compared to what they paid to Perelman (at least, I haven't seen any sec reports about that thus far). Thus, based on available information one can conclude, that they wanted to simply get rid of Perelman, therefore, they paid such huge premium.
    Explanation 1: They also own debt and wanted to avoid debt problems when dealing with Perelman. Pro: $700m annual interest was pretty close to what they have paid for the control; Not much evidence of them acquiring on open market, so they only needed to get rid of Perelman. Possible results for minority shareholders: dilution to improve debt stance, costly debt restructurings, divesting of the growth assets.

    Explanation 2: Caledonia is after SGMS growth assets (app business SCPL), potential deals in betting, etc. Basically, same arguments as above. Possible results for minority: divesting of the growth assets, leaving minority and debt holders with casino related legacy business

    Explanation 3: Caledonia is about to grow SGMS for the benefit of all shareholders: Pro: SGMS still generates some cash, and in 0% environment you can justify some multiples; also, there are some growth assets. Contra: they seem not to be buying shares before deal at below 20 (though, they might disclose such purchases later); also SGMS has deeply negative equity and huge debt, while core business is weak and will be weak for a while, and growth sector (SCPL) might also see some decline. Basically, creditors have been taking all the free cash flow for a while. In this scenario they can pump the share price in the short term based on all online casino/sports betting announcements by state, however, the long-term plan seem vague, since SGMS in a relatively weak position compared to other players in these markets. Though, they can dump their stake at even higher premium into something hyped like DraftKings. Again, if they selected this path, why didn't they accumulate below $20?

    Sgms was briefly trading above its value in spcl yesterday but is back below. Spinn out scpl interest to sgms shareholders and see if the stock trades to zero as the current price suggests. Management should confirm and enhance shareholder value by highlighting that the core business is implying negative value / trading for free. I will buy free optionality on sgms all day long.

    Q1 call was good and not sure why down -5% after hours. Confirmed about $1b in liquidity with worst of burn expected to be -$70m to -90m in Q2. SciPlay growing strongly with 20% rev increase from March to April. Lotto revs down but continuing to generate rev and bouncing back. Importantly confirmed covenant relief on debt and no near due dates. Adding.
