Full House Resorts leaves NYSE for Nasdaq listing

Shares of Full House Resorts Inc. will begin trading Wednesday on the Nasdaq Capital Market after the company approved transferring its stock exchange listing from the New York Stock Exchange.

The Las Vegas-based gaming company said shares will continue to trade under its current listing FLL. In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Full House didn’t give a reason for the change, beyond saying it “voluntarily” withdrew its shares from the NYSE.

Andre Hilliou, chairman and CEO of Las Vegas-based Full House, expected the shift to the Nasdaq to further enhance the company’s overall visibility while “increasing the liquidity of our common stock.”

Hilliou said he looked “forward to a long-lasting and productive relationship” with the Nasdaq. Full House shares gained 4 cents, or 1.23 percent, to close Monday at $3.30.

Full House, owns, develops and manages casinos nationwide. Among the gaming company’s properties are the Rising Star Riverboat Casino in Indiana, the Silver Slipper Casino in Mississippi, and Stockman’s Casino and the Grand Lodge Casino in Northern Nevada.
