Las Vegas Sands Corp., the casino company controlled by billionaire Sheldon Adelson, is seeking as much as $2bn to restart mothballed projects in Macau, chief operating officer Michael Leven said.

Sands aims to get commitments for project financing from lenders by the end of the month to resume work on lots 5 and 6 of its 21,000-room hotel and casino complex on Macau’s Cotai Strip, Leven said in an interview in New York yesterday.
