LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 15, 2018--
Wynn Resorts, Limited (NASDAQ: WYNN) (the “Company”) announced today
that its indirect wholly owned subsidiaries, Wynn Las Vegas, LLC and
Wynn Las Vegas Capital Corp. (the “Issuers”), have commenced a
solicitation of consents (the “Consent Solicitation”) to a proposed
amendment (the “Proposed Amendment”) to the indenture (the “Indenture”)
governing the Issuers’ 4.25% Senior Notes due 2023 (the “Notes”). The
Proposed Amendment would conform the definition of “Change of Control”
relating to ownership of equity interests in the Company in the
Indenture to the terms of the indentures governing the Issuers’ other
Subject to the terms and conditions of the Consent Solicitation, holders
of Notes who validly deliver (and do not validly revoke) their consents
prior to the Expiration Time will receive an aggregate cash payment of
$25.0 million (the “Consent Payment”). The Consent Payment will be paid
to the consenting holders pro rata in accordance with the principal
amount of Notes as to which consents were validly tendered (and not
revoked) prior to the Expiration Time.
Adoption of the Proposed Amendment to the Indenture requires the consent
of holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the then
outstanding Notes that are not owned by the Issuers or any person
directly or indirectly controlling or controlled by or under direct or
indirect common control with either of the Issuers (the “Requisite
Consents”). As of the date of this press release, there is $500.0
million in aggregate principal amount of the Notes outstanding.
The Company anticipates that, promptly after receipt of the Requisite
Consents (at or prior to the Expiration Time), the Company will notify
U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee (the “Trustee”) that the
Requisite Consents have been obtained and the Issuers, guarantors and
the Trustee will execute a supplemental indenture with respect to the
Indenture (the “Supplemental Indenture” and such time, the “Effective
Time”). Although the Supplemental Indenture will become effective upon
execution by the Issuers, the guarantors and the Trustee, the Proposed
Amendment will only become operative upon payment of the Consent Payment
by the Issuers, which the Issuers expect to make one business day after
the Expiration Time. The Indenture will remain in effect, without giving
effect to the Proposed Amendment, until the payment of the Consent
Payment by the Issuers.
The Consent Solicitation will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time,
on March 20, 2018, unless extended (the “Expiration Time”). The Consent
Solicitation is being made upon the terms and is subject to the
conditions set forth in the Consent Solicitation Statement, dated March
15, 2018 (as it may be amended or supplemented from time to time, the
“Consent Solicitation Statement”). Holders of Notes will not be able to
revoke their consents after the Expiration Time.
The Issuers have engaged Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. to act as
solicitation agent in connection with the Consent Solicitation.

Bank Securities Inc. at (855) 287-1922 (U.S. toll-free) and (212)
