Former Amaya CEO David Baazov folds on $4.1-billion Montreal gaming company Amaya.

David Baazov, previous CEO of Amaya Inc., rejected his arrangement to take the Montreal-based online gambling company private.

Baazov had proposed purchasing out different shareholders of Amaya Inc. for $24 per share.

Mr. Baazov said the premium requested was more than he and his financial specialists were willing to pay.

As of late as Nov. 25, Baazov said in a U.S. regulatory filing that he had $3.45 billion US in dedicated financing for a takeover of Amaya, which possesses PokerStars and other online casino games.

Baazov, who possesses around 17% of Amaya stock, had initially shown his arrangement to take Amaya private early this year prior to Quebec’s securities controller laid five charges against him in March, including imparting privileged data.

He has argued not blameworthy to every one of the charges and the case is right now under the watchful eye of the courts.
