Boyd Gaming / Stations Casinos Deal Praised

LAS VEGAS (AP) - An analyst said today that Boyd Gaming Corp.'s
offer to buy Station Casinos Inc.'s assets may make sense, as the
Las Vegas locals market could be closer to a recovery than the Las
Vegas Strip.

Late yesterday, Boyd told fellow Las Vegas-based casino operator
Station that it was interested in buying its assets after or as
part of a bankruptcy reorganization.

Boyd said in a letter that it was willing to pay $950 million in
cash for most of the assets of the privately held company, except
for those secured by certain loans.

Boyd has access to $2 billion in a revolving credit facility.

Susquehanna Financial Group's Robert LaFleur says the
transaction would give Boyd possession of nearly all Las Vegas
locals properties if approved.
