Caesars Entertainment To Form New Growth-Oriented Venture

The relative ownership percentages of each of CAC and Caesars in Growth Partners will be determined by the amount of cash proceeds received by CAC, and contributed to Growth Partners, upon the sale of its shares to holders of the subscription rights.  Caesars is expected to own at least 57% of Growth Partners' economic interests at closing, and as much as 77%, depending on the amount of proceeds raised by CAC through its sale of shares, and will receive a call option that allows it to repurchase all of the economic interest and control of the assets in the future, subject to certain limitations. The voting units and non-voting units of Growth Partners will participate ratably in distributions and will be identical economically, other than for certain call and liquidation rights.

The values of the assets to be contributed or sold were evaluated on Caesars' behalf by a valuation committee comprised of three of Caesars' independent directors. The valuation committee received financial advice from Evercore Partners and legal advice from Morrison & Foerster LLP.

Mitch Garber, CEO of Caesars Interactive Entertainment, Inc., will serve as CEO of CAC and continue in his role as CEO of CIE.

The closing of the transactions will be subject to certain conditions, including entry into definitive documentation, the receipt of required approvals from applicable gaming and other regulatory authorities and the receipt of certain bring-down opinions, and there can be no assurance that such conditions will be satisfied.

A registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933 relating to the common shares of CAC has not yet been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  The subscription rights and CAC shares may not be sold nor may offers to buy the subscription rights and CAC shares be accepted prior to the time a registration statement relating to such rights and shares is filed and becomes effective.  This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any security and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offering, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
