US-based Wynn Resorts has advised that it will not proceed with a potential takeover bid for Australian-listed Crown Resorts. The two groups are believed to have been holding confidential talks for several months, and Crown informed the ASX of the negotiations on 9 April. Wynn Resorts has cited the "premature disclosure" of these discussions for its decision to cease all negotiations with Crown. Businessman James Packer, who has a 46.1 per cent stake in Crown, would have emerged with a 10 per cent stake in Wynn Resorts if the deal had proceeded.
