Item 1.01.          Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement


On May 3, 2021, Red Rock Resorts, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company” or “Red Rock”), through its subsidiary Station Casinos LLC, a Nevada limited liability company (“Station” or “Seller”), and Station’s subsidiary, RRR Palms LLC, a Nevada limited liability company (“RRR Palms”), entered into an Interest Purchase Agreement (the “Interest Purchase Agreement”) with SMGHA Nevada, LLC, a Nevada limited liability company (the “Buyer”) and Yuhaviatam, LLC, a California limited liability company as the guarantor of Buyer’s obligations, pursuant to which Buyer will purchase all of the outstanding membership interests of RRR Palms for aggregate consideration of $650,000,000, subject to customary adjustments and a ticking fee described more fully therein (the “Sale”). RRR Palms is the owner of the entities that own the Palms Casino Resort and Palms Place. The Interest Purchase Agreement also provides for an incremental increase of the purchase price, up to a total aggregate increase of approximately $28.5 million, in the event that the Sale has not been consummated within eighteen months. The Buyer may be required to pay a termination fee in the event that the Interest Purchase Agreement is terminated as a result of the failure of the Buyer to receive required gaming approvals.


The Interest Purchase Agreement contains customary representations and warranties from each of Seller and Buyer and customary indemnification obligations. Each of Seller and Buyer has also agreed to customary covenants, including, among others, covenants relating to the conduct of its business prior to the closing and the use of reasonable best efforts to consummate the Sale and obtain all required consents and approvals, including regulatory approvals. The Interest Purchase Agreement contains restrictions on Seller from re-opening the Palms Casino Resort.


Consummation of the Sale is subject to customary conditions, including, among other things, (i) the absence of any injunction or order preventing the transactions contemplated by the Interest Purchase Agreement, (ii) expiration or termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, (iii) receipt of applicable gaming regulatory approvals, (iv) accuracy of the respective parties’ representations and warranties and (v) compliance by the parties with their respective covenants and obligations. The obligation of the Buyer to consummate the Sale is not subject to a financing condition.


The Interest Purchase Agreement may be terminated by the Seller or Buyer under certain circumstances, including, among other circumstances, if (i) closing does not occur by May 3, 2022, subject to extensions under certain circumstances for up to an additional 90-day period on successive occasions up to two times, (ii) there is a final determination by the applicable gaming authorities not to issue the gaming approvals required to consummate the Sale or Buyer withdraws its application for any such gaming approvals in response to a request of the applicable gaming authority, (iii) there is a final, non-appealable order preventing the consummation of the Sale or (iv) there has been a breach of the covenants or representations and warranties by the other party that is not cured such that the applicable closing conditions are not satisfied.
