Red Rock Resorts, Inc. Announces Commencement of Cash Tender Offer to Purchase Shares of its Class A Common Stock for an Aggregate Purchase Price of Not More than $350,000,000 at Price Not Greater Than $53.00 nor Less Than $46.00 per Share; Declares Special Dividend of $3.00 per share of Class A Common Stock
LAS VEGAS, Nov. 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Red Rock Resorts, Inc. (the "Company" or "RRR") (NASDAQ: RRR) today announced that it commenced a "modified Dutch Auction" tender offer to purchase up to $350,000,000 in aggregate purchase price of its issued and outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock, par value $0.01 per share (each, a "Share," and collectively, the "Shares"), or such lesser aggregate purchase price of Shares as are properly tendered and not properly withdrawn, at a price not greater than $53.00 nor less than $46.00 per Share to the seller in cash, less any applicable withholding taxes and without interest. The tender offer is being made in accordance with the terms and subject to the conditions described in the offer to purchase, the related letter of transmittal and other related materials, as each may be amended or supplemented from time to time.
The closing price of the Shares on the NASDAQ Stock Market on November 9, 2021, the last full trading day before the commencement of the tender offer, was $48.99 per Share. The tender offer is scheduled to expire at 12:00 Midnight, at the end of the day, New York City time, on December 9, 2021, unless the offer is extended or terminated. Promptly after the expiration date, RRR will, on the terms and subject to the conditions described in the offer to purchase, determine the single per-Share purchase price that RRR will pay, subject to "odd lot" priority, proration and conditional tender provisions, for Shares properly tendered at or below the purchase price in the offer and not properly withdrawn, and accepted for payment, taking into account the number of Shares tendered pursuant to the offer and the prices specified, or deemed specified, by the tendering shareholders. The purchase price will be the lowest price per Share (in increments of $0.25) of not greater than $53.00 and not less than $46.00 per Share, at which Shares have been properly tendered, or deemed properly tendered, and not properly withdrawn, that will enable RRR to purchase the maximum number of Shares having an aggregate purchase price not exceeding $350,000,000 (or, if the offer is not fully subscribed, all Shares properly tendered and not properly withdrawn). RRR expressly reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to change the per Share purchase price range and to increase or decrease the number of Shares sought in the tender offer, subject to applicable law. In addition, in the event that Shares are properly tendered at or below the purchase price (and not properly withdrawn) having an aggregate purchase price of more than $350,000,000, RRR may exercise its right to purchase up to an additional 2% of its outstanding Shares without extending the expiration date.
In addition, the Company announced that its Board of Directors has declared a special cash dividend of $3.00 per Share (the "Special Dividend"). The Special Dividend is payable to shareholders of record on November 23, 2021, and is expected to be paid on December 22, 2021. Shareholders will be entitled to the Special Dividend whether or not they tender their Shares pursuant to the tender offer provided they hold such Shares on the record date. Because shareholders will remain the holder of any Shares they tender until the tender offer expires and the Company accepts any such Shares for payment, shareholders will receive the Special Dividend even if they tender their Shares prior to the record date. However, shareholders that acquire any Shares after the record date for the Special Dividend and subsequently tender such Shares pursuant to the tender offer will not receive the Special Dividend with respect to such Shares.
The Company believes that the repurchase of Shares pursuant to the tender offer, as well as the Special Dividend, is a prudent use of its financial resources that will allow the Company to return value to its shareholders and that a prompt deployment of its investable cash for this purpose is in the best interests of its shareholders. The tender offer provides a mechanism for completing the Company's sizeable repurchase of Shares more rapidly than would be possible through open market repurchases. The Company also believes that the modified Dutch auction tender offer is an efficient method of providing its shareholders an opportunity to generate value with respect to some or all of their investment in the Company by tendering all or a portion of their Shares, if they so choose.
The tender offer is not contingent upon a minimum number of Shares being tendered or a financing condition; however, the tender offer is subject to a number of other terms and conditions, which are described in detail in the offer to purchase. Specific instructions and a complete explanation of the terms and conditions of the tender offer are contained in the offer to purchase, the related letter of transmittal and other related materials, which are being mailed to shareholders of record.
None of the Company, the members of its Board of Directors, the dealer manager, the information agent or the depositary makes any recommendation as to whether any shareholder should participate or refrain from participating in the tender offer or as to the purchase price or purchase prices at which shareholders may choose to tender their Shares in the tender offer.
The information agent for the tender offer is D.F. King & Co., Inc. The depositary for the tender offer is American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC. The dealer manager for the tender offer is BofA Securities, Inc. For all questions relating to the tender offer, please call the information agent, D.F. King & Co., Inc., toll-free at (800) 870-0653; banks and brokers may call the dealer manager, BofA Securities, Inc., at 1 (888) 803-9655.
