Story continues below

Item 1.01 Entry into Material Definitive Agreement.

On April27, 2017, Caesars Growth Properties Holdings, LLC
(CGPH), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Caesars Growth
Partners, LLC, a joint venture between Caesars Acquisition
Company (CAC) and Caesars Entertainment Corporation
(CEC), entered into an Incremental Assumption Agreement
and Amendment No.1 (the Amendment), by and among CGPH,
Caesars Growth Properties Parent, LLC (CGPP), the other
loan parties party thereto, the lenders party thereto and Credit
Suisse AG, Cayman Islands Branch, as Administrative Agent (the
Administrative Agent). The Amendment amends the First Lien
Credit Agreement, dated as of May8, 2014, among CGPH, CGPP, the
lenders party thereto and the Administrative Agent (the First
Lien Credit Agreemen
t).

Among other things, the Amendment (a)provides for an increase of
CGPHs existing term loan facility by $175 million to
approximately $1.3 billion (the Term Facility) and
(b)reduces the interest rate margins applicable to the Term
Facility and CGPHs existing $150 million revolving credit
facility (the Revolving Facility) to, at CGPHs option, the
Eurocurrency Rate (as defined in the First Lien Credit Agreement)
plus 3.00% in the case of Eurocurrency Loans (as defined in the
First Lien Credit Agreement) or the ABR (as defined in the First
Lien Credit Agreement) plus 2.00% in the case of ABR Loans (as
defined in the First Lien Credit Agreement), with further
reductions to the Eurocurrency Rate plus 2.75% or the ABR plus
1.75%, respectively, at such time as CGPHs Senior Secured
Leverage Ratio (as defined in the First Lien Credit Agreement) is
equal to or less than 2.84 to 1.0.

The Amendment provides that the proceeds of the $175 million
increase of the Term Facility will be held in escrow until the
receipt of all required regulatory approvals, at which time the
escrowed proceeds will be released to repay the property specific
term loan encumbering The Cromwell, but no earlier than May3,
2017. If such approvals are not obtained by July26, 2017, such
$175 million of proceeds will be repaid and The Cromwells
property specific term loan will remain outstanding.

The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the
Amendment were made only for purposes of the Amendment and as of
the specific date (or dates) set forth therein, were solely for
the benefit of the parties to the Amendment and are subject to
certain limitations as agreed upon by the contracting parties. In
addition, the representations, warranties and covenants contained
in the Amendment may be subject to standards of materiality
applicable to the contracting parties that differ from those
applicable to investors. Investors are not third-party
beneficiaries of the Amendment and should not rely on the
representations, warranties and covenants contained therein, or
any descriptions thereof, as characterizations of the actual
state of facts or conditions of CGPH. Moreover, information
concerning the subject matter of the representations and
warranties may change after the date of the Amendment, which
subsequent developments may not be reflected in CACs public
disclosure.

The description of the Amendment does not purport to be complete
and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Amendment,
which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto, and is incorporated herein
by reference.
