Wynn Las Vegas, LLC
Wynn Las Vegas Capital Corp.
(1) No representation is made as to the correctness or accuracy of the CUSIP numbers listed in this press release, the Offer to Purchase or printed on the Notes. They are provided solely for the convenience of Holders of the Notes.
(2) Includes $20.0 million in principal balance of Notes held by Wynn Resorts. Wynn Resorts will not participate in this Offer.
(3) Per $1,000 principal amount of Notes.
(4) Excludes Accrued Interest, which will be paid in addition to the Base Consideration or the Total Consideration, as applicable.
Holders of Notes must validly tender and not validly withdraw their Notes on or before 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on February 22, 2024, unless extended (such date and time, as the same may be extended, the “Early Tender Time”) in order to be eligible to receive the Total Consideration. Holders of Notes who validly tender their Notes after the Early Tender Time and on or before the Expiration Time (as defined below) will be eligible to receive only the applicable Base Consideration, which is equal to the Total Consideration minus the Early Tender Premium, as set forth in the table above. In addition to the applicable consideration, Holders whose Notes are accepted for purchase in the Tender Offer will receive accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the date on which the Tender Offer is settled (“Accrued Interest”). The settlement date for Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase before the Early Tender Time (if Wynn Las Vegas, LLC elects to do so) is currently expected to be on or about February 23, 2024 and the final settlement date, if any, is expected to be March 11, 2024.
The Tender Offer is scheduled to expire at 5:00 P.M., New York City time, on March 8, 2024 unless extended or earlier terminated (such date and time, as the same may be extended, the “Expiration Time”). As set forth in the Offer to Purchase, validly tendered Notes may be validly withdrawn at any time on or before 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on February 22, 2024, unless extended (the “Withdrawal Deadline”).
Completion of the Tender Offer is subject to certain market and other conditions, including Wynn Resorts Finance, LLC and Wynn Resorts Capital Corp.’s (the “New Notes Issuers”) arranging their new debt financing on terms satisfactory to them and receipt of the net proceeds therefrom. Wynn Las Vegas reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to waive any and all conditions to the Tender Offer with respect to the Notes.
If any Notes are validly tendered and the principal amount of such tendered Notes exceeds the Tender Cap as set forth in the table above, any principal amount of the Notes accepted for payment and purchased, on the terms and subject to the conditions of the Tender Offer, will be prorated based on the principal amount of validly tendered Notes, subject to the Tender Cap and any prior purchase of Notes on any day following the Early Tender Date and prior to the Expiration Date.
Any Notes that are validly tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Date (and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Withdrawal Deadline) will have priority over any Notes that are validly tendered after the Early Tender Date. Accordingly, if the principal amount of any Notes validly tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Date (and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Withdrawal Deadline) and accepted for purchase equals or exceeds the Tender Cap, no Notes validly tendered after the Early Tender Date will be accepted for purchase.
