06:13 EDTCZRCaesar's files complaint against investors for thwarting restructuring efforts
Caesars and its subsidiary, Caesars Entertainment Operating Company, filed suit in the Supreme Court of New York, New York County against certain institutional investors who they believe have sought to injure them by attempting to thwart CEOC's restructuring efforts through actions apparently designed to push CEOC into default. The complaint states that Caesars and CEOC believe some creditors are motivated to act against the best interest of the enterprise and other creditors to inflate the value of credit default swap positions or improve other unique securities positions. The complaint names certain institutional investors who hold second-lien notes issued by CEOC, along with Elliott Management Corporation, which holds first-lien notes. Caesars and CEOC believe Elliott holds a significant CDS position. The complaint alleges that second-lien holders served CEOC with a baseless notice of default. The complaint seeks declaratory and injunctive relief to prevent further damage to Caesars and CEOC. The complaint also seeks damages from the defendants.

06:47 EDTCZRCreditors dispute 'inside deals' surrounding Caesars loyalty program, WSJ says
Caesars Entertainment's (CZR) customer loyalty program has been valued at $1B by creditors, who alleged in lawsuits surrounding its January bankruptcy that the Caesars parent company and majority stake holder Apollo (APO) made several improper deals designed to keep the loyalty unit inaccessible to creditors, reports the Wall Street Journal. Fitch Ratings analyst Alex Bumazhny now calls a swift bankruptcy process "increasingly unlikely," while the presiding judge gave additional scope last week to investigate the disputed deals.

07:15 EDTCZRCaesar's says disputes raise 'substantial doubt' about 'going concern' status
Caesar's stated in a regulatory filing after the close Monday that the company is subject to currently pending or threatened litigation and demands for payment by certain creditors asserting CEC is obligated under the former parent guarantee of certain CEOC defaulted debt. The litigation pending against CEOC, and in certain cases against CEC and its other subsidiaries, have been stayed due to the Chapter 11 bankruptcy process, however, certain litigation and the demands against CEC are continuing outside of the Chapter 11 bankruptcy process. "We believe that the Litigation claims and Demands against CEC are without merit and intend to defend ourselves vigorously. At the present time, we believe it is not probable that a material loss will result from the outcome of these matters," Caesar's stated. The noteholder disputes are in their very preliminary stages and discovery has begun on the unsecured note lawsuits, the company noted. "Should these matters ultimately be resolved through litigation outside of the CEOC Financial Restructuring, and were a court to find in favor of the claimants in any of these Noteholder Disputes, such determination could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, results of operations, and cash flows. Accordingly, we have concluded that the material uncertainty related to certain of the Litigation proceeding against CEC raises substantial doubt about the company’s ability to continue as a going concern," Caesar's added.
