Caesars Entertainment Operating Company, Inc. Key Developments

Caesars Entertainment Operating Company, Inc. to Implement Financial Restructuring Plan; Appoints Randall S. Eisenberg as Chief Restructuring Officer

Caesars Entertainment Operating Company, Inc. (CEOC) announced that it is moving forward to implement its previously announced financial restructuring plan. The plan, which has received support from more than 80% of first-lien noteholders, is intended to significantly reduce long-term debt and annual interest payments, while providing for significant recoveries for creditors and ensuring no interruption of operations across the company's network of properties. To implement the balance sheet deleveraging, CEOC and certain of its U.S. subsidiaries have voluntarily filed for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Illinois in Chicago. Randall S. Eisenberg, a managing director at AlixPartners, has been named Chief Restructuring Officer of CEOC. In this role, Eisenberg will oversee the Chapter 11 cases and implementation of the restructuring transactions at the operational level.

Caesars Entertainment Operating Company, Inc. Signs Second Amended and Restated Restructuring Support and Forbearance Agreement in Respect of Notes

On January 12, 2015, Caesars Entertainment Corporation (CEC) and Caesars Entertainment Operating Company, Inc. (CEOC), announced that holders (the Consenting Creditors) of over 67% of claims in respect of CEOC's 11.25% senior secured notes due 2017, CEOC's 8.5% senior secured notes due 2020 and CEOC's 9% senior secured notes due 2020 (collectively, the First Lien Notes and, the claims with respect thereto, the First Lien Bond Claims) have signed the Second Amended and Restated Restructuring Support and Forbearance Agreement, dated as of January 9, 2015 (the RSA), among CEC, CEOC and the Consenting Creditors. As previously disclosed by CEC and CEOC, 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on January 12, 2015 was the deadline for Consenting Creditors to sign the RSA to be entitled to the forbearance fee in an aggregate amount equal to 3.25% of the First Lien Bond Claims held by any such Consenting Creditor. On January 12, 2015, CEOC issued a statement responding to an involuntary chapter 11 petition filed against CEOC by certain holders of its 10.00% Second-Priority Senior Secured Notes due 2018 in the U.S. bankruptcy court for the district of Delaware. Under CEOC's senior secured credit facilities, an event of default occurs if an involuntary chapter 11 petition is filed against CEOC and such petition shall continue undismissed for 60 days or an order or decree approving the petition shall be entered. Under CEOC's first-priority senior secured notes, second-priority senior secured notes and senior unsecured notes, an event of default occurs if a court enters an order or decree under bankruptcy law for relief against CEOC in an involuntary case and such order or decree remains unstayed and in effect for 60 days.

Caesars Entertainment Corporation and Caesars Entertainment Operating Co. Provide Update on Debt Restructuring Support

Caesars Entertainment Corporation and its subsidiary Caesars Entertainment Operating Company, Inc. announced that as of January 7, 2015, 19 institutions (the Consenting Creditors) who, on behalf of themselves or certain managed funds and/or accounts, hold 53% of claims in respect of CEOC's 11.25% senior secured notes due 2017, CEOC's 8.5% senior secured notes due 2020 and CEOC's 9% senior secured notes due 2020 (collectively, the 'First Lien Notes' and, the claims with respect thereto, the 'First Lien Bond Claims') have signed the Amended and Restated Restructuring Support and Forbearance Agreement, dated as of December 31, 2014 (the RSA), among Caesars Entertainment, CEOC and the Consenting Creditors. The advisors to certain of the Consenting Creditors have notified Caesars Entertainment and CEOC that, subject to the closing of certain purchases of additional First Lien Notes, the Consenting Creditors will hold, in the aggregate, 55% of the First Lien Bond Claims which shall be subject to the RSA. On December 19, 2014, CEOC reached an agreement with CEOC's first lien note holder steering committee regarding terms of a financial restructuring plan, which would significantly reduce long-term debt and annual interest payments, and result in a stronger balance sheet for CEOC. The restructuring support agreement has been signed by all members of the first lien note holder steering committee.
