After acquiring 24.74% of Summit Ascent Holdings in 2019, Sun City Group became the single largest shareholder of Summit Ascent Holdings, and its shareholding increased to nearly 70%.
Today, Summit Ascent Holdings has officially received an inspirational news, that is the permission from the Governor of Russia (Primorsky Krai) to reopen the company's Russian casino Tigre De Cristal which has been suspended since March 28.
Summit Ascent Holdings claims that since the border is still not fully open, the company will continue to focus on strengthening the local market.
This reopening does not allow employees to return to work. According to an announcement on Wednesday this week, the purpose of this restart is deemed to allow Tigre De Cristal's upgrade work to continue. The upgrade plan includes a new Sun City VIP lounge, authentic Korean and Chinese restaurants, and an additional 30 hotel rooms.
According to the statement, with the reopening of the facility, Tigre De Cristal will also implement a series of health and safety measures to avoid the spread of COVID-19. These measures include requiring all staff and guests to wear masks, undergoing temperature checks at the entrance, maintaining social distances within the casino area, and establishing a maximum number of guests for restaurants and bars.
"Our Group has always been a responsible corporate citizen and has always tried its best to respond to the Russian government's call to maintain local employment. So far, the Group has not laid off any employees in the COVID-19 crisis." Summit Ascent Holdings Said.
The casino is to reopen to the public this week.
