LAS VEGAS, May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MGM Resorts International (the "Company") (NYSE: MGM) announced today that it has commenced an offer to exchange any and all of its outstanding $1.0 billion aggregate principal amount of 6.750% Senior Notes due 2020 (the "Initial Notes") for new 6.750% Senior Notes due 2020 (the "New Notes") that have been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). The exchange offer is being made pursuant to a Registration Rights Agreement entered into by the Company when it originally issued the Initial Notes on September 19, 2012.

Initial Notes that are not exchanged will continue to be subject to the existing transfer restrictions under the federal securities laws and the Company will have no further obligation to provide for the registration of such notes except under certain limited circumstances. The exchange offer will expire at 5:00 p.m.New York City time, on May 31, 2013, unless extended by the Company. Valid tenders of the Initial Notes must be made, and may be withdrawn at any time, before the exchange offer expires.
