Wynn Resorts, Limited (NASDAQ: WYNN) (“Wynn Resorts”) announced today that Wynn Resorts Finance, LLC (“Wynn Resorts Finance”) and its subsidiary Wynn Resorts Capital Corp. (“Wynn Resorts Capital” and, together with Wynn Resorts Finance, the “Issuers”), each an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Wynn Resorts, are offering $600 million aggregate principal amount of Senior Notes due 2031 (the “Notes”) in a private offering.
The Notes will initially be jointly and severally guaranteed by all of Wynn Resorts Finance’s domestic subsidiaries (collectively, the “Guarantors”) that guarantee the Issuers’ existing senior secured credit facilities (the “Senior Credit Facilities”), except Wynn Resorts Capital, which is the co-issuer of the Notes, the Issuers’ 7.750% Senior Notes due 2025 (the “2025 WRF Notes”) and the Issuers’ 5.125% Senior Notes due 2029 (the “2029 WRF Notes”). The Notes and guarantees will be senior unsecured obligations of the Issuers and the Guarantors and will rank equal in right of payment with all existing and future liabilities of the Issuers and such Guarantors that are not subordinated, including their obligations under the 2025 WRF Notes and the 2029 WRF Notes, and, with respect to Wynn Las Vegas, LLC (“Wynn Las Vegas”) and certain of its subsidiaries, their obligations under the existing senior notes issued by Wynn Las Vegas. The Notes and guarantees will be effectively subordinated to all of the Issuers’ and the Guarantors’ existing and future secured debt (to the extent of the value of the collateral securing such debt), including the Senior Credit Facilities and the existing senior notes issued by Wynn Las Vegas.
Wynn Resorts Finance plans to use the net proceeds from the offering, together with cash on hand, (i) to purchase any and all of the 2025 WRF Notes that are validly tendered and accepted for payment pursuant to the tender offer commenced by Wynn Resorts Finance on the date hereof, (ii) to redeem any 2025 WRF Notes that remain outstanding upon completion of the tender offer and (iii) to pay related fees and expenses. This press release shall not constitute an offer to purchase or the solicitation of an offer to sell the 2025 WRF Notes.
The Issuers will make the offering pursuant to an exemption under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The initial purchasers of the Notes will offer the Notes only to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act or outside the United States to certain persons in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act. The Notes have not been and will not be registered under the Securities Act or under any state securities laws. Therefore, the Issuers may not offer or sell the Notes within the United States to, or for the account or benefit of, any United States person unless the offer or sale would qualify for a registration exemption from the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.
This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes described in this press release, nor shall there be any sale of the Notes in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, sale or solicitation would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
Wynn Resorts Finance’s subsidiary Wynn Las Vegas intends to repurchase or redeem all of the outstanding Wynn Las Vegas 4.25% Senior Notes due 2023 with cash on hand on or after February 28, 2023 (when such notes become redeemable at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount plus accrued interest). This press release does not constitute a notice of redemption or an offer to purchase or the solicitation of an offer to sell such notes.
