LV Sands reiterates commitment to plan

Las Vegas Sands Corp., in danger of defaulting on some of its loans, on Friday reaffirmed its pledge to the $4 billion Marina Bay Sands development in Singapore.

Company Chairman Sheldon Adelson expressed his company’s commitment to Singapore officials this week.

“In light of recent turmoil in the global markets, I felt the need to personally reaffirm our commitment to the success of Marina Bay Sands,” Adelson said in a statement.

Last week, Singapore tourism officials said the government would ensure the Marina Bay Sands was built.
