LAS VEGAS (Business Wire) -- Wynn Resorts, Limited (NASDAQ:WYNN) announced today that its indirect wholly owned subsidiary, Wynn Las Vegas, LLC, has commenced a cash tender offer (the “Tender Offer”) for any and all of its outstanding $500.0 million aggregate principal amount of 7⅞% First Mortgage Notes due 2017 (the “Notes”) and a solicitation of consents to certain proposed amendments to the indenture (the “Indenture”) governing the Notes (the “Consent Solicitation”). The proposed amendments would eliminate substantially all of the restrictive covenants as well as various events of default and other provisions.
The Tender Offer and the Consent Solicitation are scheduled to expire at midnight, New York City time, in the evening of May 21, 2013 unless extended or earlier terminated (such time, as may be extended, the “Expiration Time”). Holders who validly tender their Notes and deliver their consent to the proposed amendments to the Indenture prior to the Expiration Time will be eligible to receive $1,071.45 for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes. Holders may not tender their Notes pursuant to the Tender Offer without delivering consents or deliver consents without tendering their Notes.
Tendered Notes may not be withdrawn and the related consents may not be revoked, except as may be required by applicable law. Completion of the Tender Offer is subject to certain market and other conditions, including the completion by Wynn Las Vegas, LLC and Wynn Las Vegas Capital Corporation (the “issuers”) of an offering of senior notes on terms and conditions satisfactory to the issuers. Settlement of the Tender Offer will occur promptly after the Expiration Time, unless terminated.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to purchase or the solicitation of an offer to sell or a solicitation of consents with respect to the Notes. The complete terms and conditions of the Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation are described in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement dated as of May 15, 2013 (the “Offer to Purchase”) and the related Letter of Transmittal and Consent, copies of which may be obtained from D.F.
