08:39 EDTMGMMGM Resorts sends letter to shareholders to refute Land & Buildings accusations
In a letter to shareholders, MGM commented, "Today, we are also compelled to address 0.38% shareholder Land & Buildings' lawed proposal and mischaracterization of MGM's performance and investment decisions. In addition, we want to make clear why the Board members targeted by L&B are integral to the effectiveness of the MGM Board and the success of our business. Contrary to L&B's assertions, MGM is very well positioned to continue delivering value to shareholders and has a clear strategy in place to deliver on the company's potential... In addition to driving the implementation of this strategy, MGM's Board has and will continue to actively evaluate all strategic options for sustainable growth including a partial or total REIT conversion. Our full Board is the right one to oversee your investment in MGM and, as we recently disclosed, Evercore Group L.L.C. has been engaged and added to MGM's team of existing advisors to evaluate all strategic options.... Since 2012, MGM's Board has driven strong operating performance in net revenues and Adjusted Property EBITDA, achieving a 5% net revenue CAGR and 11% Adjusted Property EBITDA CAGR... In addition to implementing a successful strategy to drive MGM's strong operating performance, the Board has successfully positioned the Company for sustainable growth. The Board has thoughtfully allocated capital by enhancing existing properties and has also supported trend setting capital-light partnership strategies. The capital investments the Company is currently making will ensure long-term value creation. We believe L&B's assertion that we stop making those investments in the Company's future is completely unsupportable... If L&B is successful in removing the directors it has targeted, MGM will lose critical experience in labor and government relations, gaming and hospitality, media, international business, public utilities, energy, sustainability, and diversity programs, among other areas that are of critical importance to our business."

As previously reported, Morgan Stanley downgraded Melco Crown to Underweight from Equal Weigh and lowered its price target to $17 from $22. The firm has increased concerns that earnings revisions have yet to bottom due to regulatory pressures, oversupply concerns, and higher than expected operating expenses. Morgan Stanley expects a 50% increase in the number of rooms over the next 18 months and said valuation is not compelling at current levels.

12:58 EDTWYNNElaine Wynn comments on election results of the Wynn Resorts Annual Meeting
Elaine Wynn, co-founder and third-largest stockholder of Wynn Resorts issued the following statement regarding today's Wynn Resorts 2015 Annual Meeting of Stockholders: "While I am certainly disappointed by the result of today's vote, I am hopeful that I have once again served as an agent for change and improvement for this company, which I love so deeply. I have believed all along that this Board was better and would be held more responsible for its actions with me as a member of it. I am gratified to hear from so many investors that this proxy contest was a success in that it brought to light critical corporate governance concerns at Wynn Resorts such as independence, expertise and diversity in the Boardroom and the impact they have on key issues that our company is facing including compensation practices and succession planning. It remains to be seen if the directors of this company will deliver on the commitments they have made to greater independence, diversity and oversight of management. I, however, as the third-largest stockholder, remain committed to holding all accountable, and will now do so from a position of greater strength. Thank you, my fellow stockholders, for your continued support of me and the continued success of Wynn Resorts for our collective benefit."
