The Board of Directors of MGM Resorts International is saddened to report that Burton M. Cohen passed away on May 5, 2014. Mr. Cohen had served as a director since 2010 and served on the audit committee and nominating/corporate governance committee.
Everyone who knew Mr. Cohen enjoyed his sharp sense of humor, his warmth and his immeasurable wisdom. We were very fortunate to have him on our Board of Directors for the past four years. He had tremendous vision, and his contributions to this company were invaluable. We join with his family and many friends in reflecting on his many contributions to our company, industry and community.
Mr. Cohen was a nominee for election to the Board of Directors at the Companys annual meeting of stockholders to be held on June 5, 2014 (the Annual Meeting). The Board of Directors has not designated a substitute nominee for Mr. Cohen and has reduced the size of the Board of Directors from 13 to 12. Upon expiration of the term of Willie D. Davis at the Annual Meeting as described in our proxy statement, the size of the Board of Directors will be further reduced from 12 to 11. The Board of Directors will therefore present 11 nominees for election at the Annual Meeting. The Board of Directors recommends that you vote FOR each of these 11 nominees.
If you have already voted your shares by proxy, your shares will be voted as specified in your prior vote with regard to the existing nominees, unless you choose to revoke your proxy. If you have not already voted your shares by proxy, you may still use the original proxy card that we previously distributed, and your vote with respect to nominees for director will be counted accordingly, other than votes with respect to Mr. Cohen, which will be disregarded for purposes of the election of directors at the Annual Meeting.
