MIAMI, 27 de agosto de 2020 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — El Comité Organizador del Super Bowl de Miami dio a conocer los resultados de un informe que documenta los impactos económicos de los visitantes y de los eventos previos al Super Bowl LIV, un juego histórico que marcó el cruce de caminos entre el 11º Super Bowl organizado por la ciudad, todo un récord, y la culminación de la celebración de la 100ª temporada de la NFL. El juego del campeonato se llevó a cabo el 2 de febrero de 2020 en el Hard Rock Stadium.

Según el informe, el Super Bowl LIV generó nuevos gastos por valor de $572 millones en Miami y en el área tricondal del sur de la Florida en general. Los espectadores visitantes, los equipos de la NFL, los medios, así como la NFL y los Miami Dolphins dedicaron $275 millones a la organización del evento, añadieron 4,600 empleos equivalentes anuales y aportaron $34 millones en ingresos tributarios estatales y locales.

Stephen Ross, dueño de los Miami Dolphins, invirtió $579 millones para renovaciones e importantes mejoras de capital en el Hard Rock Stadium durante el período 2015-2019, lo cual posibilitó que la ciudad atrajera y organizara uno de los principales eventos deportivos del mundo. “Nos emocionó acoger al Super Bowl LIV en el Hard Rock Stadium. La ocasión se convirtió en una extraordinaria vitrina para el sur de la Florida“, dijo Stephen Ross, presidente de la junta directiva de los Miami Dolphins. “Quiero agradecer a la NFL, al Comité Organizador del Super Bowl de Miami y al equipo de los Dolphins, dirigido por Tom Garfinkel, por su compromiso y trabajo durante todo el proceso”.

Miami invitó al mundo a que viniera a LIVEITMIAMI y podemos decir con confianza que entregamos uno de los mejores Super Bowl que el mundo haya visto nunca”, señaló Rodney Barreto, presidente del Comité Organizador del Super Bowl de Miami. “En una ciudad donde los grandes eventos son algo habitual, agradecemos que los sectores privado y público hayan dado el paso al frente para ayudarnos a conseguir esta gigantesca victoria. La última vez que organizamos un Super Bowl fue en 2010 y mostramos al mundo lo mucho que hemos crecido y prosperado como una ciudad diversa y multicultural”.

El Comité Organizador agradece a las múltiples agencias del orden público, los primeros intervinientes, los asociados gubernamentales y los miles de voluntarios que posibilitaron que los diversos eventos fueran seguros y agradables. También agradece a los fieles fanáticos del fútbol que viajaron a la soleada Miami para participar en las muchas celebraciones que se organizaron en todo el sur de la Florida.

“El sobresaliente desempeño económico como resultado del Super Bowl LIV en febrero ayudó a mantener a esta comunidad y a la industria turística a flote cuando comenzaron los efectos de la pandemia en marzo”, expresó William D. Talbert, III, presidente y CEO del GMCVB. “El impacto económico del Super Bowl LIV sirve para recordarnos a todos de lo que es capaz la industria turística del Gran Miami y de la importancia de organizar eventos globales en nuestra comunidad. Ahora nuestra prioridad debe ser adherirnos a las medidas de seguridad para eliminar la propagación del COVID-19 de forma que estos eventos extraordinarios que estimulan la economía y hacen crecer los empleos sean viables otra vez”.

“La actividad económica generada por el Super Bowl LIV estuvo entre las mayores de todos los eventos deportivos que hemos evaluado durante los últimos 25 años”, señaló la Dra. Kathleen Davis, CEO de Sport Management Research Institute, que llevó a cabo el estudio económico. “El nivel de los gastos por parte de los visitantes y el grado de satisfacción de los visitantes con la sede fue más alto que en los Super Bowls anteriores. El promedio de los gastos diarios de los visitantes fue más del doble que el promedio en otras semanas del año en Miami“.

El estudio económico se basó en una encuesta a 1,432 personas entre el 30 de enero y el 3 de febrero en varias localidades del área de Miami. Los encuestados informaron haber gastado como promedio $1,781 por grupo de viajeros por día en el área local. Una abrumadora cantidad de los encuestados que asistieron al juego procedieron de lugares fuera del área del sur de la Florida, cuyos gastos totales por valor de $133 millones representan dinero nuevo aportado a la economía regional.

Los impactos económicos de los gastos con motivo del Super Bowl LIV se evaluaron mediante el uso de un modelo para el área metropolitana de Miami desarrollado con el sistema de evaluación regional IMPLAN, que toma en cuenta la cuota de bienes y servicios proporcionados por negocios locales y que permite calcular los efectos multiplicadores o de “spinoff” del nuevo gasto en el área de mercado.

NEW YORK, Nov. 25, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — WeissLaw LLP is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the board of directors of BMC Stock Holdings, Inc. (“BMCH” or the “Company”) (NYSE: BMCH) in connection with the proposed acquisition of the Company by Builders FirstSource, Inc. (“BLDR”) (NASDAQ: BLDR).  Under the terms of the merger agreement, BMCH stockholders will receive 1.3125 BLDR shares for each share of BMCH common stock they own, representing implied per-share merger consideration of $48.68 based upon BLDR’s November 24, 2020 closing price of $37.09.  At closing, BMCH’s current stockholders will only own a 43% stake in the combined company.

If you own BMCH shares and wish to discuss this investigation or have any questions concerning this notice or your rights or interests, visit our website:

[email protected]

WeissLaw is investigating whether BMCH’s management and the board may have artificially revised BMCH’s financial projections downward in order to make the proposed transaction appear more favorable to BMCH stockholders than it truly is.  Despite having a pre-existing set of long-term projections developed by management and relied upon by the board during the sales process, BMCH created a new, significantly revised set of financial projections in apparent response to BLDR’s June 2020 revised all-stock acquisition proposal (“July Projections”).  This occurred little more than a month before the BMCH board agreed to the proposed merger, and seems wholly inconsistent with the Company’s recent unprecedented financial performance.  To make matters worse, the earlier set of projections, the assumptions underlying those projections, and the basis for the significant revision of the July Projections is either wholly omitted or inadequately disclosed to BMCH shareholders.  Without disclosure of the Company’s earlier long-term projections or qualitative discussion describing how the long-term projections were changed in July, BMCH stockholders have no way to assess whether the revision was proper in light of the Company’s record-setting second quarter financial results.

Given these facts, WeissLaw is concerned whether the board acted in the best interest of BMCH’s public stockholders in agreeing to the proposed transaction and whether the exchange ratio is fair to the Company’s public stockholders, and whether all information concerning the process leading to the proposed transaction and valuation of the Company on a standalone basis has been fully and fairly disclosed. 

WeissLaw LLP has litigated hundreds of stockholder class and derivative actions for violations of corporate and fiduciary duties.  We have recovered over a billion dollars for defrauded clients and obtained important corporate governance relief in many of these cases.  If you have information or would like legal advice concerning possible corporate wrongdoing (including insider trading, waste of corporate assets, accounting fraud, or materially misleading information), consumer fraud (including false advertising, defective products, or other deceptive business practices), or anti-trust violations, please email us at [email protected]
