Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On June 17, 2011, MGM Resorts International, a Delaware corporation (the Company), issued $300 million in aggregate principal amount of its 4.25% Convertible Senior Notes due 2015 (Emerging Corporate Series) (the Notes) under an indenture dated as of June 17, 2011 (the Indenture), among the Company, the guarantors named therein and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee. The Notes were sold only to an accredited investor pursuant to an exemption from the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act). The Notes, and shares of the Companys common stock (the Common Stock) issuable upon conversion of the Notes, have not been registered under the Securities Act and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements. A copy of the Indenture, the terms of which are incorporated herein by reference, is filed herewith as Exhibit 4.1.
The Notes will pay interest semi-annually at a rate of 4.25% per annum and mature on April 15, 2015. The Notes will be convertible into shares of Common Stock at an initial conversion rate of 53.8307 shares of Common Stock per $1,000 principal amount of the Notes, representing an initial conversion price of approximately $18.58 per share of Common Stock. The initial conversion rate is subject to adjustment under certain circumstances. The Notes will be convertible into shares of Common Stock at any time prior to the close of business on the third scheduled trading day immediately preceding the maturity date of the Notes.
Holders of the Notes may require the Company to purchase all or a portion of their Notes at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes to be purchased, plus accrued and unpaid interest, in cash, upon the occurrence of certain fundamental changes involving the Company. In addition, if certain fundamental changes occur, the Company may be required in certain circumstances to increase the conversion rate for any of the Notes converted in connection with such fundamental change by a specified number of shares of Common Stock.
The Notes are the Companys senior unsecured obligations, guaranteed by substantially all of the Companys wholly-owned domestic subsidiaries, which also guarantee the Companys other senior indebtedness, and equal in right of payment with, or senior to, all existing or future unsecured indebtedness of the Company and each subsidiary guarantor.
