THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Jan. 30, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Newport Global Advisors LP (“Newport”), a leading middle market manager of opportunistic stressed and distressed credit investment is pleased to announce the completion of the sale of Mesquite Gaming, LLC (“Mesquite“) on November 30, 2023.

Headquartered in Mesquite, NV, Mesquite owns and operates the Casablanca Hotel & Casino and Virgin River Hotel & Casino.

Timothy Janszen, CEO at Newport, said, “We want to thank Michael and Anthony for their partnership over the last 12 years. This exit represents a terrific accomplishment for the entire team and it could not have been achieved without their deep and unmatched industry expertise.”

Anthony Toti, former Chairman & CEO, said, “I am proud of our team’s achievements and the support of Michael Gaughan and Newport. We are thrilled to have delivered such a terrific result.”
