A majority of lenders consented to the amendment, and Caesars executives are pleased with the lenders' support of this transaction. In addition, CEOC extended the maturity date of approximately $800 million in loans from 2015 to 2018, and also converted approximately $425 million of its revolving credit facility to term loan due in 2018.  

"Our success in extending a portion of our debt improves upon an already strong maturity runway for Caesars," said Jonathan Halkyard, Caesars Entertainment chief financial officer.  "We are satisfied with our current maturity profile, which has no major maturities prior to 2015, and plan to continue our strategy of opportunistically extending maturities subject to market conditions."
