    Chapter 12:

      Section: 5:12-95.12: Applicability and requirements

           Applicability and Requirements.



a. Except as provided in subsection b. of this section, whenever any person contracts to transfer any property relating to an ongoing casino operation, including a security holding in a casino licensee or holding or intermediary company, under circumstances which require that the transferee obtain casino licensure under section 82 of the "Casino Control Act," P.L.1977, c.110 (C.5:12-82), or qualification under section 84 or 85 of the "Casino Control Act," P.L.1977, c.110 (C.5:12-84 or 5:12-85), the contract shall not specify a closing or settlement date which is earlier than the 121st day after the submission of a completed application for licensure or qualification, which application shall include a fully executed and approved trust agreement in accordance with section 5 of this 1987 amendatory and supplementary act. Any contract provision which specifies an earlier closing or settlement date shall be void for all purposes. Subsequent to the earlier of the report of the division on interim authorization or the 90th day after the timely submission of the completed application, but no later than the closing or settlement date, the commission shall hold a hearing and render a decision on the interim authorization of the applicant. If the commission grants interim authorization, then, subject to the provisions of sections 3 through 7 of this 1987 amendatory and supplementary act, the closing or settlement may occur without interruption of casino operations. If the commission denies interim authorization, there shall be no closing or settlement until the commission makes a determination on the qualification of the applicant, and if the commission then denies qualification the contract shall thereby be terminated for all purposes without liability on the part of the transferor.

b. Whenever any person, as a result of a transfer of publicly-traded securities of a casino licensee or a holding or intermediary company or a financing entity of a casino licensee, is required to qualify under section 84 or 85 of the "Casino Control Act," P.L.1977, c.110 (C.5:12-84 or 5:12-85), the person shall, within 30 days after the commission determines that qualification is required or declines to waive qualification under section 84, under paragraph (1) of subsection d. of section 85, or under subsection f. of section 85, or within such additional time as the commission may for good cause allow, file a completed application for such licensure or qualification, which application shall include a fully executed and approved trust agreement in accordance with section 5 of P.L.1987, c.409 (C.5:12-95.14), or in the alternative, such person, within 120 days after the commission determines that qualification is required or a waiver of qualification is denied, shall divest such securities as the commission may require in order to remove the need for qualification. If such person determines to divest such securities, notice of such determination shall be filed with the commission within 30 days after the commission determines that qualification is required or that a waiver of qualification is denied. No extension of the time for filing a completed application shall be granted unless the person submits a written acknowledgement of the jurisdiction of the commission and the obligations imposed by the "Casino Control Act," P.L.1977, c.110 (C.5:12-1 et seq.). If a person required by this section to file an application fails to do so in a timely manner, such failure shall constitute a per se disqualification to continue to act as a security holder, and the commission shall take appropriate action under the "Casino Control Act." If a person required by this section to file an application does so in a timely manner, then, subsequent to the earlier of the report of the division on interim authorization or the 90th day after submission of the completed application, but not later than the 120th day after such submission, the commission shall hold a hearing and render a decision on the interim authorization of such person. The pendency of proceedings under this subsection shall not prevent the renewal of a casino license under section 88 of the "Casino Control Act," P.L.1977, c.110 (C.5:12-88), so long as any person required by this subsection to file an application has complied with this subsection and has otherwise complied with the "Casino Control Act."

L.1987,c.409,s.3; amended 1991,c.182,s.32.
