The article reports that the Nevada Gaming Commission has allowed Dubai World to acquire a maximum of 20% stake in MGM Mirage. Director at Dubai World Li Boon Yu said they are seeking al regulatory approvals before adding investments on MGM in a long-term view. Dubai World already owns 9.4 percent of MGM shares in a $6 billion deal last 2007. Yu is hoping that market conditions will rebound in 2009 as the MGM stock prices slipped below $80, the price they paid per share.
