Eldorado Resorts LLC (the “Company”) today announced that it intends to offer $180,000,000 aggregate principal amount of senior secured notes due 2019 (the “Notes”) in a private placement.
The net proceeds from the sale of the Notes, together with borrowings under a new credit facility and cash on hand, will be used (i) to purchase or otherwise redeem or retire all of the outstanding 10% First Mortgage Notes due 2012 (the “Shreveport Notes”) issued by the Company’s subsidiary Eldorado Casino Shreveport Joint Venture (the “Louisiana Partnership”) and Shreveport Capital Corporation, (ii) purchase all or a portion of the Company’s 9% Senior Notes due 2014 (the “Eldorado Notes”), (iii) pay all amounts required to retire the outstanding preferred interests in the Louisiana Partnership and (iv) pay fees and expenses related to such refinancing transactions.
The Notes will be offered and sold to qualified institutional buyers in accordance with Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and to persons outside the United States in accordance with Regulation S under the Securities Act and applicable exemptions from registration, prospectus or like requirements under the laws and regulations of the relevant jurisdictions outside the United States. The Notes will not be registered under the Securities Act and, unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. The Notes referred to above will also not be registered in any jurisdiction outside of the United States and no action or steps will be taken to permit the offer of the Notes in any such jurisdiction where any registration or other action or steps would be required to permit an offer of the Notes. The Notes may therefore not be offered or sold in any such jurisdiction except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the relevant requirements of laws and regulations of such jurisdictions.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes or any other securities of the Company, nor shall there be any offer, solicitation or sale of the Notes in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
