LAS VEGAS--()--Affinity Gaming (“Affinity Gaming” or the “Company”) today announced that it received a copy of the Schedule 13D/A (the “13D/A”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission by Z Capital Partners L.L.C. and its affiliates (“Z Capital”), which attached thereto a copy of a complaint Z Capital filed March 5, 2013, against the Company and its Board of Directors.
The complaint, filed in District Court, Clark County, Nevada, seeks a judgment (i) declaring, among other things that the Company’s conversion, on December 20, 2012, from a Nevada limited liability company to a Nevada corporation was ineffective and void ab initio, (ii) declaring that the Rights Agreement, dated December 21, 2012, between Affinity Gaming and American Stock Transfer & Trust Company is void ab initio and unenforceable, and (iii) awarding Z Capital general, special, consequential and punitive damages.
The Company has not yet been served with the complaint. However, based on its preliminary review of the 13D/A, the Company and its Board of Directors believe that the claims brought by Z Capital are without merit and intend to defend against them vigorously.
