Holders who validly tender and do not validly withdraw their Notes and whose Notes are accepted for purchase in the Tender Offer will also be paid accrued and unpaid interest from and including the interest payment date immediately preceding the applicable settlement date to, but not including, the applicable settlement date.
Each holder who validly tenders, and does not validly withdraw, its Notes on or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 23, 2021, unless extended (such date and time, as the same may be extended, the "Early Tender Deadline") will be entitled to an early tender payment, which is included in the total tender offer consideration above, of $30.00 for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered by such holder if such Notes are accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer, subject to the Maximum Amount. If, on the Early Tender Deadline, Notes are purchased in the Tender Offer representing an aggregate principal amount that is equal to the Maximum Amount for the Tender Offer, no additional Notes will be purchased in the Tender Offer, and there will be no final settlement date for the Tender Offer.
Holders validly tendering, and not validly withdrawing, Notes after the Early Tender Deadline and on or before the Expiration Time will be eligible to receive only the late tender offer consideration, which represents the total tender offer consideration less the early tender payment.
In addition, holders whose Notes are accepted for payment in the Tender Offer will receive accrued and unpaid interest from the last interest payment date to, but not including, the applicable settlement date for their Notes purchased pursuant to the Tender Offer. Notes tendered prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 23, 2021 (the "Withdrawal Deadline") may be withdrawn at any time prior to the Withdrawal Deadline. Notes tendered after the Withdrawal Deadline may not be withdrawn.
Subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions, the Issuers reserve the right, following the Early Tender Deadline, to accept for purchase prior to the Expiration Time all Notes validly tendered on or prior to the Early Tender Deadline (the "Early Settlement Election"). The Issuers will announce whether they intend to exercise the Early Settlement Election (the "Early Settlement Announcement") following the Early Tender Deadline. If the Issuers exercise the Early Settlement Election, they will pay the total tender offer consideration promptly following the Early Settlement Announcement (the "Early Settlement Date"), plus accrued and unpaid interest on the purchased Notes from the interest payment date for the Notes immediately preceding the Early Settlement Date to, but not including, the Early Settlement Date. The Early Settlement Date is currently expected to be September 24, 2021.
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 gross 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 that are being sent to holders of Notes. Holders of Notes are urged to read the Tender Offer Documents carefully.
If, following the Early Settlement Date the Tender Offer is 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.
