LAS VEGAS and RENO, Nev., Sept. 24, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Caesars Entertainment, Inc. (the “Company”) (Nasdaq: CZR) today announced the early tender results as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 23, 2021 (the “Early Tender Deadline”) and election of early settlement for its previously announced tender offer (the “Tender Offer”) by its indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries, Caesars Resort Collection, LLC and CRC Finco, Inc. (the “Issuers”) to purchase for cash up to $1.2 billion (the “Maximum Amount”) of the Issuers’ outstanding 5.250% Senior Notes due 2025 (the “Notes”) on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Issuers’ Offer to Purchase dated September 10, 2021 and the accompanying Letter of Transmittal dated September 10, 2021 (together, the “Tender Offer Documents”). Capitalized terms used and not defined in this press release have the meanings given to them in the Tender Offer Documents.
The Withdrawal Deadline has passed and the Notes tendered pursuant to the Tender Offer may no longer be withdrawn, except in the limited circumstances described in the Tender Offer Documents. The aggregate principal amount of Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline (the “Early Tender Notes”), as well as the percent of the aggregate principal amount of Notes outstanding constituting Early Tender Notes can be seen here.
In addition to the Total Tender Offer Consideration, accrued and unpaid interest from the last interest payment date up to, but not including the date on which the Total Tender Offer Consideration will be paid, which is expected to occur on September 24, 2021 (the “Early Settlement Date”), will be paid by the Company in same day funds on the Early Settlement Date on all validly tendered Notes accepted for purchase in the Tender Offer. The Tender Offer will expire at 12:00 a.m. midnight, New York City time, on October 7, 2021, unless extended (such time and date, as the same may be extended, the “Expiration Time”). No tenders submitted after the Expiration Time will be valid. Subject to the terms and conditions of the Tender Offer, holders of the Early Tender Notes will receive the Total Tender Offer Consideration, which includes the Early Tender Payment for the Notes of $1,015.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes tendered. Holders who validly tender their Notes after the Early Tender Deadline and at or prior to the Expiration Time and whose Notes are accepted for purchase will be eligible to receive only the Late Tender Offer Consideration. Accrued and unpaid interest will be paid on all Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase from the last interest payment date up to, but not including, the applicable settlement date.
Subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions to the tender offer, the Company expects to accept for purchase any remaining Notes that have been validly tendered and not validly withdrawn after the Early Tender Deadline and at or prior to the Expiration Time promptly following the Expiration Time on the Final Settlement Date (as defined in the Tender Offer Documents), which is expected to occur promptly following the Expiration Time.
The Issuers’ obligation to accept for purchase, and to pay for, Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn pursuant to the Tender Offer is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions, including, among others, the condition that Caesars Entertainment, Inc. has completed a debt financing on terms and conditions satisfactory to it yielding net cash proceeds of at least $1.0 billion (the “Financing Condition”).The complete terms and conditions of the Tender Offer are set forth in the Offer Tender Offer Documents. Holders of Notes are urged to read the Tender Offer Documents carefully.
Because, following the Early Settlement Date, the Tender Offer was not fully subscribed, the Issuers intend to issue a notice of redemption to redeem $1.2 billion of the Notes less the amount of Notes tendered on or about October 15, 2021 (the “Redemption Date”) at the redemption price, expressed as a percentage of principal amount, of 101.313%, plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon to the Redemption Date. However, neither this press release nor the Tender Offer Documents constitutes a notice of redemption of the Notes or an obligation to issue a notice of redemption of the Notes.
