Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.
In March, Caesars Entertainment Operating Company, Inc. and its affiliated debtor entities filed an adversary action against Wilmington Savings Fund Society, FSB, Meehancombs Global Credit Opportunities Master Fund, LP, Relative Value-Long/Short Debt Portfolio, A Series of Underlying Funds Trust, SB 4 CF LLC, CFIP Ultra Master Fund, Ltd., Trilogy Portfolio Company, LLC, Frederick Barton Danner, and BOKF, N.A. (collectively, the Adversaries) requesting that the Bankruptcy Court enjoin the Adversaries from continuing to pursue pending claims against Caesars Entertainment Corporation (CEC) in New York and Delaware (the Lawsuits). On July 22, 2015, the Bankruptcy Court ruled against enjoining the Lawsuits, and accordingly the Lawsuits will continue against CEC. CEC believes the claims asserted in Lawsuits are without merit and will continue to vigorously defend against such claims.
