Revel: We’re worth $450M; 4 yrs away from profit

    Atlantic City’s newest casino says it is worth a fraction of what it cost to build the $2.4 billion resort as it prepares to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection next week.

    The Press of Atlantic City, citing filings Revel made to federal regulators this week, reports the casino may not turn a profit for four more years.

    Revel says next year may be the first in which it brings in more money than it costs to run the business. When other costs are added, it could be 2017 before Revel operates in the black.

    The figures were part of documents filed ahead of Revel’s pre-packaged Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing, which is likely to be made on Monday.
