In connection with the transactions, Caesars intends to distribute subscription rights at no charge to Caesars' stockholders on a pro rata basis. Funds affiliated with Apollo Management, L.P. and TPG Capital L.P. (the "Sponsors") have advised Caesars that they each intend to invest $250 million in CAC, though they have not entered into any agreement to do so. The consummation of the transaction will be contingent on such investment from the Sponsors. The subscription rights will afford each stockholder of Caesars the right to acquire for cash at least the same pro rata ownership interest in CAC as such stockholder holds in Caesars. The subscription rights are expected to be transferable by Caesars stockholders. CAC could receive approximately $1.2 billion if all subscription rights are exercised in full. All stockholders who elect to invest in CAC, including the Sponsors, will do so on the same terms.
CAC will use the proceeds from its sale of shares to acquire all of the voting interests in Growth Partners. Caesars and its subsidiaries will contribute to Growth Partners their shares of Caesars Interactive Entertainment, Inc. and approximately $1.1 billion face value of senior notes issued by CEOC that are held by a subsidiary of Caesars in exchange for non-voting membership interests. Additionally, Growth Partners intends to use proceeds received from CAC to purchase from a Caesars subsidiary the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Caesars' joint venture interests in a casino under development in Baltimore (Horseshoe Baltimore) and a financial stake in the management fee stream for both of those properties.
Caesars and its affiliated companies will continue to manage Planet Hollywood and Horseshoe Baltimore, allowing these properties to be part of the Total Rewards network and benefit from Caesars' shared services operating model. Caesars and Growth Partners will have the opportunity to work together to develop future projects. Caesars Entertainment's management and development teams will continue to identify and advance new growth opportunities. Caesars will then have the option to pursue these projects itself or decline the project for itself, after which Growth Partners may elect or decline to pursue the project.
