Uncertainty looms for losers of deal

Jun 21, 2017 - Australian Financial Review

One of the first congratulatory phone calls Tabcorp chief executive David Attenborough shared on Tuesday morning after his $11 billion merger with Tatts Group got the green light was with Racing NSW boss Peter V'Landys.

The two organisations are close and V'Landys was a big backer of the deal, having labelled claims it would lessen competition for broadcast rights as "a complete furphy" and that parties opposing the merger were doing so "to leverage their commercial interests".
