LAS VEGAS, March 27, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- MGM Resorts International (the "Company") (NYSE: MGM) today announced that it has priced an upsized public offering of $1.0 billion in aggregate principal amount of 5.500% senior notes due 2027 at par. The offering of the notes was upsized from the originally announced aggregate principal amount of $500.0 million. The transaction is expected to close on April 10, 2019, subject to customary closing conditions.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the offering of the notes, together with other sources of funds, which may include cash on hand or borrowings under its revolving credit facility, to fund the purchase of up to $1.0 billion aggregate principal amount of its outstanding 5.25% senior notes due 2020 and 6.75% senior notes due 2020 through cash tender offers. Any excess net proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes, which could include refinancing existing indebtedness, paying dividends on common stock or repurchasing common stock in accordance with the Company's share repurchase program. Pending such use, the Company may invest the net proceeds in short-term interest-bearing accounts, securities or similar investments.
The notes being offered will be general unsecured senior obligations of the Company, guaranteed by substantially all of the Company's wholly owned domestic subsidiaries that guarantee the Company's other senior indebtedness, and equal in right of payment with all existing or future senior unsecured indebtedness of the Company and each guarantor.
