Summit Ascent Holdings Ltd (HK: 102) has signed an agreement to set up a casino outside the far eastern Russian city of Vladivostok on the Pacific coast, targeting an official opening to the gaming complex in the second half of 2014.

Mr. Ho Yau Lung, Chairman of Melco International Development (HK: 200) -- who also serves as a substantial shareholder in Summit Ascent -- is spearheading the deal to tap Russia’s gaming industry.

The casino proposal involves a reverse takeover.

Trading in the shares of Summit Ascent will remain suspended, and further announcements will be made by the Hong Kong-listed firm once there is any progress with respect to the proposed investment.

Summit Ascent (formerly known as Arnhold Holdings Ltd) was founded in 1993 and its shares were listed on Hong Kong’s main board since January 1994. Its principal activity is investment holding, and through its operational subsidiaries Summit is engaged in tiles trading and engineering operations.
