Caesars Submits Application To Develop Caesars New York

LAS VEGAS, June 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Caesars Acquisition Company (NASDAQ: CACQ) and Caesars Entertainment Corp. (NASDAQ: CZR) today announced the proposed development of Caesars New York, an $880 million luxury casino resort in Woodbury, New York.  This afternoon, Caesars Acquisition Company, through its subsidiary, Caesars Growth Partners, submitted its application to the New York State Gaming Facility Location Board for a gaming license, which will be managed and operated by Caesars Entertainment and its affiliates.  The application details plans for the resort and presents information about Caesars' operations and history.

Situated in the heart of the Hudson Valley, approximately 50 miles from New York City, the proposed project will be a sustainably designed, contemporary structure that complements the region's natural surroundings to create a world-class entertainment retreat. The resort is projected to attract more than 10 million visitors a year, making it a strong economic engine for the State of New York, Orange County and Woodbury. Caesars New York will work closely with other businesses in the State to maximize the economic development opportunity in the region as outlined in the Gaming Act.

"We have a tremendous opportunity to bring the Caesars brand to New York State and create a world-class entertainment facility, adding a new destination the Total Rewards loyalty network and attracting visitors from throughout the region and around the world," said Gary Loveman, chairman and chief executive officer of Caesars Entertainment. "If we are successful in winning a license, Caesars New York will create thousands of jobs and become an engine for economic growth in the area. We are grateful for the support we have received from Woodbury residents and businesses and look forward to working closely with local officials if we win a license."

Based on current estimates, Caesars projects an estimated total of $230 million in anticipated annual tax revenues with $29 million annually going to the local community and $10 million to Orange County. The project is anticipated to create approximately 4,500 direct jobs including 1,500 construction jobs and approximately 3,000 permanent, well-paying, mostly union jobs. 

Caesars has entered into a neutrality agreement with the New York Hotel Trades Council and a project labor agreement with the Hudson Valley Building Trades Council with regard to the operation and construction of the proposed resort. In its application, Caesars has outlined a plan to open the resort approximately 24 months after receiving necessary permits and approvals.
