NEW YORK, Jan. 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Full House Resorts, Inc. (“Full House” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: FLL) announced today that it has commenced a solicitation (the “Solicitation”) of consents (the “Consents”) to amend the Indenture (such amendments, the “Amendments”) dated as of February 12, 2021 (as amended or supplemented through the date hereof, the “Indenture”) governing Full House’s 8.250% Senior Secured Notes due 2028 (the “Notes”) (CUSIP Nos. 359678 AC3 and U3232F AB3) to allow for the incurrence of up to $100.0 million of additional Notes (the “Additional Notes”) (i) to develop, equip and open The Temporary by American Place, our planned temporary casino in Waukegan, Illinois (“The Temporary”) which we intend to operate while we design and construct our permanent American Place facility, (ii) to pay the transaction fees and expenses of the offer and sale of the Additional Notes and (iii) for general corporate purposes. The Consents will also permit the Company to increase the available borrowings under its credit agreement from $15.0 million to $40.0 million. The aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Notes is $310.0 million.
The Solicitation will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on February 1, 2022 (such date and time, as Full House may extend from time to time, the “Expiration Time”). Only holders of record of the Notes as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on January 25, 2022 are eligible to deliver Consents to the Amendments in the Solicitation. Full House reserves the right at any time on or prior to 9:00 a.m., New York City time, on the business day following the Expiration Time, to: (i) prior to the satisfaction of all conditions to the Solicitation, terminate the Solicitation for any reason; (ii) extend the Solicitation from time to time if any condition to the Solicitation has not been met or waived; (iii) extend the Expiration Time without extending the right of Holders to revoke Consents delivered (and not validly revoked) prior to the Effective Time; (iv) amend the terms of the Solicitation; (v) modify the form or amount of the consideration to be paid pursuant to the Solicitation; (vi) waive any of the conditions to the Solicitation, subject to applicable law; or (vii) not extend the Solicitation beyond the last previously announced Expiration Time whether or not the Requisite Consents (as defined below) have been received by such date.
After the Expiration Time and upon the satisfaction or waiver of all conditions to the Solicitation, Full House will pay a cash payment (the “Consent Fee”) of $10.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes held by an eligible holder with respect to which a valid Consent to the Amendments was delivered (and not validly revoked) prior to the Expiration Time. The Consent Fee will only be payable if all conditions to the Solicitation, including the receipt of the Requisite Consents with respect to the Notes, have been satisfied or waived and will be paid substantially concurrently with the issue date of the Additional Notes.
Adoption of the Amendments with respect to the Notes requires the Consent of the holders of at least a majority of the aggregate principal amount of all outstanding Notes (the “Requisite Consents”). Consents may be validly revoked at any time prior to the earlier of (x) the Effective Time (as defined below) and (y) the Expiration Time, but not thereafter.
