Earlier today, the London-listed casino operator confirmed that it has initiated the compulsory acquisition of the remaining shares in Mr Green & Co (MRG) ahead of its complete takeover.

It is expected that the purchase of MRG will be finalised this month such that William Hill will assume full control of the business with Ulrik Bengtsson, chief digital officer at William Hill, to be responsible for leading the integration of MRG within the group.

As per the original acquisition agreement, Mr Green operator MRG is set to cease trading on the Nasdaq Stockholm exchange on February 15th, with settlement to those shareholders who have accepted the offer during the extended acceptance period to commence around February 8th.
