GENTING Hong Kong has sold its remaining stake in Australia-listed Star Entertainment in a block trade for A$235.2 million (S$250.2 million), the leisure and entertainment company announced on Friday before the market opened.

The shares, representing a 5.62 per cent interest in gaming company Star Entertainment, were held by wholly owned subsidiary CCL, and the sale is being carried out through UBS AG.

The company said that it was selling the shares because it was a "good opportunity" to realise a gain.
