Barstool Sports Confirms Sale to Penn National

Gambling company Penn National Gaming will buy about a third of Barstool Sports in a deal that will bring the brash but beloved blog into the sports betting arena, the companies announced Wednesday.

Penn National will pay $163 million for a 36 percent stake in Barstool in the deal valuing the website at about $450 million, the gaming firm said.

“This opportunity is a dream of mine and why I started Barstool Sports in the first place,” Barstool founder Dave Portnoy said in a statement. “… I think with our shared vision and goals, we are uniquely positioned to be a leader in this business.”

Penn National will increase its Barstool share to about 50 percent after three years for another roughly $62 million, and both companies will have options to give Penn controlling ownership of Barstool, according to a news release.
