Laurent Tapie of the Groupe Bernard Tapie confirmed to iGamingFrance last night that a principle agreement between his company and the Department of Justice has to purchase Full Tilt Poker has been reached.
According to Tapie, who serves as the marketing directory of the French investment group, a deal to take control of Full Tilt Poker could be finalised in the next 15 days, meaning that repayment plans have been put in place.
Though Tapie did not describe these plans in any particular detail, he did state that the terms had already been “defined” and that the DOJ’s deal stipulates that the group must begin paying back customers outside of the US immediately.
The agreement also states that the DOJ will begin to reimburse US players,
though no further details of this arrangement have yet been revealed, and the final details of the takeover detail are still being ironed out by the two parties before Groupe Bernard Tapie can approach Full Tilt shareholders with an appropriate offer.
