§ 441a.8. Divestiture.

 (a)  If the Board determines that a slot machine license application cannot be approved because the applicant, its principal or other person who holds a direct or indirect interest in the applicant or in an affiliate, intermediary, subsidiary or holding company of the applicant, does not meet a character or other eligibility criteria required under section 1310 of the act (relating to slot machine license application character requirements), or has an ownership or financial interest that is prohibited under by section 1330 of the act (relating to multiple slot machine license prohibition), the Board may grant the person up to 120 days following the determination to completely divest his interest in the applicant or its affiliate, intermediary, subsidiary or holding company.

 (b)  The person shall notify the Board of his intention to divest within 30 days of notice from the Board of the opportunity to divest. The Board may extend this time period at its discretion.

 (c)  Failure to divest within 120 days, or within the time period prescribed by the Board, constitutes a per se disqualification of the applicant to receive a slot machine license.

 (d)  The terms of divestiture will be approved by the Board.

 (e)  The Board will not approve a divestiture if the compensation received for the divested interest exceeds the value of the interest.

 (f)  Following divestiture, the Board will reconsider the applicant’s suitability for licensure in an expedited procedure.
