Anurag Dikshit Sells Remaining PartyGaming Shares for £105m
The unfortunately named Anurag Dikshit (pronounced DICK-SHIT) has sold his remaining stake in PartyGaming (38.8M shares) for £105m (approximately $170M USD).
Reason #785,147 why Anurag Dikshit is a better person than the Entities: We'd have donated £500m to more or less buying Freida Pinto.
Dikshit will donate the monies to his charitable organization, the Kusuma Trust. Apparently he doesn’t give a crap about Haiti.
We kid, we kid.
Dikshit in total has made £700m from his shares, of which he’s reportedly funneled £500m to his charity.
In related news, Party is rumored to be near a deal to merge with Bwin. Read more here and more on Dikshit here.
Sadly, this will likely be our last ever Anurag Dikshit post. Godspeed, Mr. Dikshit.
