Shares in Crown Resorts closed almost one per cent lower at $A12.95 on 21 March, after major shareholder James Packer resigned from the board for personal reasons. Packer’s private company, Consolidated Press Holding, subsequently attributed his resignation to mental health issues. Crown Resorts has been under scrutiny in recent years over a series of scandals, including allegations that it had tampered with poker machines at Crown Melbourne and the arrest of Crown employees in China in 2016.
