Judge Sean H. Lane of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York in Manhattan approved the sale of MSR Resort Golf Course LLC's property on March 2.

The Trump affiliate, Trump Endeavor 12 LLC, will pay $150 million for the resort. Trump was set to be the stalking-horse bidder for a Feb. 27 auction, but no other bids were received.

According to a statement from Trump, the Trump Organization plans to make a major investment in the resort and golf courses with the intention of restoring Doral to its former grandeur. Trump expects to assume operation of the resort by June and renovations are expected to be completed in the fall of 2013. The resort will operate through the multimillion-dollar renovations.

The Doral Golf Resort & Spa, which opened in 1962, has 692 rooms and suites, as well as five championship golf courses. It hosts an annual PGA tour event, court papers said.

MSR and 29 affiliates filed Chapter 11 petitions on Feb. 1, 2011, due to the impending of about $1.5 billion in debt.

Andy Levine of Jones Day discusses the future of Chinese M&A

Andy Levine, an M&A partner at Jones Day in New York, believes that increased buying activity by Chinese companies will be a key driver of global M&A over the next decade. The Chinese have been big buyers of natural resources in Australia, Africa and South America, and Shuanghui International Holdings' purchase of Smithfield Foods last year was a sign of China's increased interest in U.S. companies. The deal stirred some protectionist rumblings in the U.S., but CFIUS approved the transaction, and Levine believes that decision is a positive sign for the future of Chinese M&A activity in the U.S. More video
