Dubai-based investment firm KBC Aldini Capital Ltd. has “no involvement” in the proposed multibillion-dollar privatization deal for Canadian online gambling company Amaya Inc. and has filed a complaint with U.S. regulators, its top executive says.

Last week, KBC was one of four international parties listed in news releases and regulatory filings as a new equity investor in Amaya as part of the deal. The proposed transaction is being led by Amaya’s founder and former chief executive officer, David Baazov. The filings stated that KBC was due to contribute part of the $3.65-billion that made up the equity portion of the deal.
