GGAM Executives Involved with Developing, Operating World-Class Destinations; 
Bring Best-In-Class Casino Management to Bahamian Project 
NASSAU, The Bahamas, and MACAU, May 22, 2013 /CNW/ - Baha Mar Ltd. today 
announced that Global Gaming Asset Management (GGAM), one of the casino 
industry's most successful management teams, has been retained to manage the 
Baha Mar Casino & Hotel, the centerpiece of the $3.5 billion Baha Mar 
integrated destination resort in The Bahamas, scheduled to open in December 
GGAM's senior executives William P. Weidner, Chief Executive Officer; Bradley 
H. Stone, President; and Garry Saunders, Executive Vice President, were 
involved with opening and managing the Venetian and Palazzo in Las Vegas and 
the Venetian Macao, and participated in the development the Marina Bay Sands 
in Singapore during their tenure with Las Vegas Sands. They formed GGAM in 
2011, after ending their affiliation with Las Vegas Sands. Eric Chiu and his 
Macau-based Asian team were added shortly thereafter.  GGAM's most recent 
projects include the first phase of the $1.2 billion Solaire Manila, an 
integrated resort and casino facility in the Philippines that is geared toward 
Asian and VIP clientele. 
"We're excited to bring GGAM, Bill Weidner, Brad Stone, Garry Saunders, Eric 
Chiu and his Macau-based Asian team to Baha Mar. They believe in our vision," 
said Sarkis D. Izmirlian, Baha Mar's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. 
"These executives have proven themselves in every major gaming market they've 
entered—Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Macau, Singapore and Manila—and have 
succeeded against the best in the business. They're a powerhouse of casino 
management, database marketing, junket operations and convention business, all 
of which will help to position Baha Mar as the next iconic gaming destination." 
The Honorable Obediah Wilchcombe, Minister of Tourism, said, "We've been able 
to witness firsthand the outstanding international gaming resorts developed by 
the GGAM team. They are uniquely qualified to take advantage of the pending 
modernization of the country's gaming regulations to provide Baha Mar and The 
Bahamas with a sustainable competitive advantage." 
Mr. Weidner said, "We're excited to be a part of Baha Mar. Few gaming 
destinations bring together such a desirable location, high-quality assets, 
and powerful brand partners.  We see a tremendous opportunity to build the 
Baha Mar brand into a premier name in gaming resorts. GGAM's global experience 
in developing, opening and operating some of the world's biggest and most 
profitable casino resorts will be a perfect fit for Baha Mar in targeting 
customers in key markets, including Asia."
