The following script is an excerpt from the script read by management during a conference call and webcast first made available to stockholders of Caesars Entertainment Corporation (the Company) on February 21, 2019.
First, I would like to address the recent 13D filing from entities affiliated with Carl Icahn disclosing ownership of 9.78% of Caesars outstanding shares. We regularly engage with our shareholders and consider their ideas and input regarding shareholder value. The Board and management have engaged in discussions with Mr. Icahn and his representatives and we expect to continue a constructive dialogue. We intend to carefully evaluate Mr. Icahns suggestions, including his request for Board representation, and will provide updates in due course.
Important Additional Information and Where to Find It
The Company, its directors and certain of its executive officers and employees may be deemed to be participants in the solicitation of proxies from stockholders in connection with the Companys 2019 annual meeting of stockholders (the 2019 Annual Meeting). The Company plans to file a proxy statement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) in connection with the solicitation of proxies for the 2019 Annual Meeting (the 2019 Proxy Statement), together with a WHITE proxy card. STOCKHOLDERS ARE URGED TO READ THE 2019 PROXY STATEMENT (INCLUDING ANY AMENDMENTS OR SUPPLEMENTS THERETO) AND ANY OTHER RELEVANT DOCUMENTS THAT THE COMPANY WILL FILE WITH THE SEC CAREFULLY IN THEIR ENTIRETY WHEN THEY BECOME AVAILABLE BECAUSE THEY WILL CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION. Additional information regarding the identity of these potential participants and their direct or indirect interests, by security holdings or otherwise, will be set forth in the 2019 Proxy Statement and other materials to be filed with the SEC in connection with the 2019 Annual Meeting. Information relating to the foregoing can also be found in the Companys definitive proxy statement for its 2018 annual meeting of stockholders (the 2018 Proxy Statement), filed with the SEC on April 10, 2018. To the extent holdings of the Companys securities by such potential participants (or the identity of such participants) have changed since the information printed in the 2018 Proxy Statement, such information has been or will be reflected on Statements of Change in Ownership on Forms 3 and 4 filed with the SEC.
Stockholders will be able to obtain, free of charge, copies of the 2019 Proxy Statement, any amendments or supplements thereto and any other documents (including the WHITE proxy card) when filed by the Company with the SEC in connection with the 2019 Annual Meeting at the SECs website (http://www.sec.gov), at the Companys website (https://investor.caesars.com/annuals-and-proxies) or by contacting Investor Relations by phone at 800-318-0047, by email at Investor_Inquiries@caesars.com or by mail at Caesars Investor Relations, 1 Caesars Palace Drive, Las Vegas, Nevada 89109.
