Melco Crown says Studio City project on track for mid-FY15 opening Melco Crown announced that the development of the company's Studio City project is on track for a mid-FY15 opening. Studio City, the developer of Studio City, increased the Studio City construction budget by approximately $300M, from approximately $2B to approximately $2.3B. The shareholders of SCH have agreed to make available additional equity on a pro rata basis to partially fund such budget increase. It is anticipated that the remaining amount of such budget increase will be paid for out of previously funded equity commitments from such shareholders. The total development cost of the project will continue to be funded by a combination of equity contributions from shareholders, proceeds from the Studio City senior notes and project loan.
