The Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") recently sent a letter to
Wynn asking about a $135 million gift to the University of Macau
Development Foundation. The SEC's inquiry was made as result of
allegations in a lawsuit filed in January by a former director of Wynn
and its largest shareholder, Kazuo Okada ("Okada"). According to his
lawsuit, Okada claims that the donation was improper because (1) the
Foundation is connected to government officials who regulate gambling in
Macau; (2) the Foundation sits on government owned land; and (3) the
final installment of the payment is due in ten years, the precise moment
when Wynn's Macau gaming license is set to expire.
"If Wynn is found to have violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act,
then the company could face a range of potential damages including
everything from monetary fines and penalties to losing its status as a
licensed gaming operator in Nevada and elsewhere. Based on our
investigation, we are prepared to pursue litigation to preserve the
company and the value of Wynn's stock for all shareholders, including
seeking removal of certain officers and directors and monetary
payments," said shareholder rights attorney Willie Briscoe.
