Wynn Resorts Statement Regarding Court’s Dismissal Of Okada’s Motion To Enjoin Shareholder Meeting

Wynn Resorts, Limited (Nasdaq: WYNN) issued the following statement regarding today’s decision by the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada to dismiss a motion filed by Kazuo Okada to enjoin the company’s Special Meeting on February 22 at which shareholders will vote on a proposal to remove Mr. Okada from the Board of Directors:

“We are gratified by the Court’s decision to dismiss Mr. Okada’s attempt to block the Special Meeting to remove him from the Board and that our shareholders will have the opportunity to vote on this important issue on February 22.”

The Special Meeting will be held in the Montrachet Room at Wynn Las Vegas, 3131 Las Vegas Boulevard South, Las Vegas, Nevada, on February 22 at 9:00 a.m. local time.

Mr. Okada was deemed unsuitable by the Wynn Resorts Board after a lengthy investigation by former FBI Director Louis J. Freeh uncovered evidence of improper conduct by Mr. Okada and affiliated entities under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act in connection with their dealings with Philippine officials. If Mr. Okada is removed from the Wynn Resorts Board by a vote of two-thirds of the shareholders, the Board will be reduced to eight directors, including six independent directors.
