Wynn Resorts Chairman of the Board, Phil Satre, issued the following statement in response:
"In the past twelve months, the Wynn Resorts Board of Directors -- independent and with no extensive pre-existing relationships with each other or the executive team -- have been keenly focused on establishing the right direction and leadership for the Company.
"Matt Maddox has the full confidence of me as Chairman as well as the entire Board of Directors of Wynn Resorts as our CEO today, tomorrow, and into the future. Immediately upon taking over as CEO, Matt led the transformation of our company with a new executive team, new policies and procedures, and a new corporate culture – a transformation the Nevada regulators referred to at a hearing as a total 'paradigm shift.'
