NY Post: Trump Entertainment Resorts, which owns the Trump Taj Mahal, Trump Marina and Trump Plaza casino-hotels, yesterday quietly acknowledged that the properties are worth an estimated $459 million — down from $2 billion in assets when Trump Entertainment filed for bankruptcy in February 2009.
The stunning drop in value, made in a filing submitted to the Securities and Exchange Commission late Christmas Eve and posted publicly yesterday, was based on the casinos’ 2009 financials, which have yet to be released.
