(Reuters) – Australian casino operator Star Entertainment Group said on Monday it had received unsolicited and non-binding interest from several external parties regarding potential take-control transactions.

The Australian Financial Review had reported that a consortium led by U.S.-based Hard Rock Hotels and Casinos was considering taking control of Star with a proposal that would inject more capital into the company.
