Talk:MGM Resorts International
|This article is of interest to the following WikiProjects:|
By stating that the company began with the merger with Mirage is incorrect and it covers up the whole history of the company prior to that. Where is the page for the old MGM? I doubt that this was a new company in law. Were all employees rehired? Were all contracts redone? The company has an interesting history that goes back to the 60's when it was part of the film studio. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 01:58, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
I am an employee of MGM MIRAGE.And I cna say with absolute certainty that your semantical discussion of the format of this logo is a waste of time. Bottom line is that all internal communications use MGM MIRAGE. This is a constant battle we have with vendors and even our own employees. I have prepared hundreds of communications and presentations since being with the company and MGM MIRAGE is the proper use.
The official corporate filings with the SEC are made with MGM MIRAGE and it is incorporated as such. Public example http://yahoo.brand.edgar-online.com/fetchFilingFrameset.aspx?dcn=0000950153-06-000479&Type=HTML
- That's irrelevant. Our Manual of Style dictates that we largely ignore the registered style in favor of conventional English. —David Levy 22:16, 27 February 2006 (UTC)
The parent corporation is registered with the Nevada Secretary of State as MGM MIRAGE (Corp# C250-1987), while the corporation MGM Mirage, Inc. (Corp# C18948-2000) was disbanded in 2000. Nevada's corporation search is at https://esos.state.nv.us/SOSServices/AnonymousAccess/CorpSearch/CorpSearch.aspx --- Jagged 21:54, 10 July 2006 (UTC)
- My mistake. Forbes.com listed it as having an "Inc." Also, I don't think I've ever seen a company name without a "Co.," "Inc.," or something similar. —tregoweth (talk) 19:31, 10 July 2006 (UTC)
- It depends on state rules, usually only the "non-standard" types like LLC or LLP require an identifier. Also, if you see the previous debate, it should be MGM MIRAGE, not MGM Mirage, however the current middle-ground allows the first instance in the article to follow the company's trademark. I would like to see the whole article moved, but I don't see that happening anytime soon. --- Jagged 21:54, 10 July 2006 (UTC)
My understanding a group bought out MGM Mirage and it is therefore no longer publically traded. See the MGM Mirage website for the press release.
Who is Nick Valencia? I thought that Kirk Kerkorian's Tracinda Corp was the majority owner of MGM Mirage? 188.8.131.52 07:09, 22 August 2007 (UTC)
After looking at the history, I've concluded that this was just an act of vandalism and I've corrected the page to reflect the right information. 184.108.40.206 07:20, 22 August 2007 (UTC)
- Kerorian and Tricinda became minority owners when the company's stock was diluted following a new IPO of newly released shared. see http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124268713396332161.html. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 18:33, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
- Please, more explanation.
Borgata Atlantic City and MGM Grand Atlantic City
I have removed these two properties from the list of owned properties because MGM Resorts International has relinquished its license in New Jersey due to the fact the New Jersey Casino Control Commission and the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement has found MGM Resorts International unsuitable for a license due to its relationship with Macau businesswoman Pansy Ho. MGM Resorts 50% ownership in the Borgata has been transferred to a divestiture trust seperate and apart from the company and the MGM Grand Atlantic City project has been cancelled due to the factors stated previous. Please add any discussions here first before making any edits or reverts. Thank you in advance. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 18:27, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
Closeness of Author / Advertisement
The most recent edits were performed by users not logged in, from IP addresses that are owned by MGM. They read like advertisements and should be cleaned up. I'm a bit of a novice as far as tagging/categorization goes, so I would appreciate some assistance from someone a bit more experienced. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Donpedronogal (talk • contribs) 07:11, 10 March 2016 (UTC)
