Las Vegas Sands prepared to spend $10b in Japan

    Las Vegas Sands Chairman and Chief Executive Sheldon Adelson said the company is prepared to invest up to $10 billion in Japan as the country legalizes casinos. “We will spend whatever it takes,” Adelson was cited by local media as saying at a briefing in Tokyo. He said LVS is in a position to pay all cash, but doesn’t have to. The company is opening offices and may consider working with a local partner that could make more than a financial contribution, the reports said.
