Tilman Fertitta is paying $33,000,000 to kill a plan to take Fertitta Entertainment public.
Fertitta Entertainment told the SEC Thursday it reached a deal with FAST Acquisition to call off a merger deal without having to go to court.
FAST threatened to sue after the Houston-based casino and restaurant company announced last week it didn't want to go public.
Both FAST and Fertitta accused the other of violating the merger contract.
