Revel consultant: Straub is only buyer to sign qualified deal for former Atlantic City casino

A consultant vetting bids for Atlantic City's former Revel casino says that although 18 potential buyers have expressed interest, Florida developer Glenn Straub is the only one who has made a qualified offer.

Ramy Ibrahim of Moelis & Company says only Straub's Polo North Country Club has made a firm offer for Revel — and put up the money to pay for it.

Revel's chief restructuring officer Shaun Martin agreed that Straub is the only real bidder and urged a bankruptcy court judge on Thursday to approve the $82 million sale.

A lawyer for one potential purchaser, Howard Milstein of New York and Carl Goldberg of New Jersey, told the court they plan an $88 million bid for Revel, but have not yet signed a contract.
