In connection with the termination of the Merger Agreement, Aztar paid Pinnacle a termination fee of $52.16 million and reimbursed Pinnacle for $25.84 million in fees and expenses incurred in connection with the transaction.

Inc. and Bear Stearns Corporate Lending Inc. (the “Commitment Letter”) which had provided commitments for $3.74 billion of credit facilities in connection with the acquisition of Aztar.

Inc., also are lenders, joint advisors, joint lead arrangers, and joint book runners under the Company’s Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement dated as of December 14, 2005 (the “Credit Facility”).
