Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On April 29, 2020, MGM Resorts International (the “Company”) entered into a First Amendment (the “Amendment”) to its Credit Agreement with Bank of America, N.A., as administrative agent, and certain of the lenders party thereto, dated as of February 14, 2020 (the “Credit Agreement”). The Amendment waives the rent adjusted net leverage and interest coverage covenants through (but excluding) the second quarter of 2021 (or the earlier termination of the waiver period at the Company’s election), adjusts the required leverage and interest coverage levels for the covenant when it is re-imposed at the end of the waiver period, and imposes a new monthly-tested liquidity covenant for the duration of the waiver period. In connection with the Amendment and as previously contemplated by the Credit Agreement, the Company pledged the MGM Growth Properties Operating Partnership LP units held by loan parties. The Amendment also makes certain other amendments to the terms of the Credit Agreement, including limitations to the Company’s ability to incur liens, make restricted payments, make investments and prepay subordinated debt for the duration of the waiver period and until the Company’s pro forma rent adjusted net leverage is equal to or less than 6.00:1.00. The $1.5 billion aggregate commitment amount of the Credit Agreement remains unchanged.

The foregoing description of the Amendment is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Amendment, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
