Caesars Entertainment Corporation (CZR) and Caesars Entertainment Operating Co. announced a transaction to purchase and retire $238M of CEOC's outstanding 2016 and 2017 notes held by third parties, with such notes representing 51% of each such class not held by affiliates of CEC.

As part of the transaction, CEOC received agreement for consents to amendments of certain terms of the notes and the indentures governing the notes, including a consent to the release of CEC's debt guarantee. The proposed transaction, which exemplifies CEOC's constructive and ongoing dialogue with creditors, will reduce CEOC's debt by $548M and cut interest expense by $34M annually.

06:50 EDTCZRJudge says Caesars, bondholders should prepare for trial, WSJ reports
A federal judge said that Caesars Entertainment and a group of bondholders should prepare for hearings in a suit over Caesars' guarantees of billions of dollars of debt, the Wall Street Journal reports. Judge Shira A. Scheindlin of the U.S. District Court in Manhattan said that there is a discrepancy as to whether a series of asset moving deals last year constituted an out-court debt reorganization that proved harmful to the holders of over $6B in bond debt issued by Caesars, the report says.

14:49 EDTCZRCaesars reaches restructuring support agreement with first lien bank lenders
Caesars Entertainment and Caesars Entertainment Operating Co. announced they have entered into a bank restructuring support agreement. The agreement, which is effective immediately, "secures the support" of CEOC's largest and most senior creditor constituencies and represents a "key milestone" in Caesars Entertainment and CEOC's efforts to implement a consensual restructuring of CEOC, according to Caesars. "CEOC's restructuring is now supported by CEOC's first lien bank lenders and first lien bondholders, which represent the most senior $12B of CEOC's capital structure," said the company. Caesars and CEOC continue to engage in discussions with junior creditors to build additional support for the previously announced second lien restructuring agreement. "However, the senior creditors' support of today's agreement paves the way toward a confirmable plan for the restructuring of CEOC," commented Caesars. The bank RSA is substantially similar to the previously announced bond RSA.
