Item 1.01 Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On December 13, 2008, MGM MIRAGE, a Delaware corporation (Company), entered into a purchase agreement (Purchase Agreement) whereby the Company, through its wholly-owned subsidiary The Mirage Casino-Hotel (Seller), will sell Treasure Island Hotel & Casino (TI) to Ruffin Acquisition, LLC (Ruffin Acquisition) for a purchase price of $775 million. Ruffin Acquisition is a wholly owned limited liability company by Phil Ruffin.
The purchase price is to be paid at closing as follows: $500 million in cash and $275 million in secured notes bearing interest at 10%, with $100 million payable not later than 175 days after closing and $175 million payable not later than 24 months after closing. The notes, to be issued by Ruffin Acquisition, will be secured by the assets of TI and will be senior to any other financing.
The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions contained in the Purchase Agreement, by and among Seller and TI, on the one hand, and Ruffin Acquisition, on the other hand, including receipt of all gaming and other regulatory approvals.
