§27. Institutional investors or institutional lenders

A. An institutional investor otherwise required to be found suitable or qualified pursuant to the provisions of this Title and the rules adopted pursuant thereto shall be presumed suitable or qualified upon submitting documentation sufficient to establish qualifications as an institutional investor as defined in R.S. 27:3, and upon certifying that:

(1) It owns, holds, or controls publicly traded securities issued by a licensee, permittee or holding, intermediate or parent company of a licensee or permittee in the ordinary course of business for investment purposes only.

(2) It does not exercise influence over the affairs of the issuer of such securities nor over any licensed or permitted subsidiary of the issuer of such securities.

(3) It does not intend to exercise influence over the affairs of the issuer of such securities, nor over any licensed or permitted subsidiary of the issuer of such securities, in the future, and that it agrees to notify the board in writing within thirty days if such intent should change.

B. The exercise of voting privileges with regard to publicly traded securities shall not be deemed to constitute the exercise of influence over the affairs of a licensee.

C. An institutional lender otherwise required to be found suitable or qualified pursuant to this Title and the rules adopted pursuant thereto shall be presumed suitable upon documentation being submitted by the licensee, permittee, casino gaming operator, or the institutional lender sufficient to establish qualifications as an institutional lender as defined in R.S. 27:3. The board may rescind the presumption of suitability for an institutional lender at any time if the institutional lender exercises or intends to exercise influence or control over the affairs of the indebted licensee, permittee, or casino gaming operator or a holding, intermediate, or parent company of the indebted licensee, permittee, or casino gaming operator.

D. This Section shall not be construed to preclude the Louisiana Gaming Control Board from investigating the suitability or qualifications of an institutional investor or institutional lender should the Louisiana Gaming Control Board or division become aware of facts or information which may result in such institutional investor or institutional lender being found unsuitable or disqualified.
