Important Additional Information

In connection with the Merger, CEC and CAC will file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) a Registration Statement on Form S-4 that will include a joint proxy statement/prospectus, as well as other relevant documents concerning the proposed transaction. Stockholders are urged to read the Registration Statement and joint proxy statement/prospectus regarding the Merger when it becomes available and any other relevant documents filed with the SEC, as well as any amendments or supplements to those documents, because they will contain important information. You will be able to obtain a free copy of such joint proxy statement/prospectus, as well as other filings containing information about CEC and CAC, at the SEC’s website (, from CEC Investor Relations ( or from CAC Investor Relations (
Forward-Looking Statements
This filing contains or may contain “forward-looking statements” intended to qualify for the safe harbor from liability established by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. You can identify these statements by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. These statements contain words such as “may,” “will,” “contemplated,” “might,” “expect,” “intend,” “could,” “would” or “estimate,” or the negative of these words or other words or expressions of similar meaning may identify forward-looking statements and are found at various places throughout this Form 8-K. These forward-looking statements, including, without limitation, those relating to the Restructuring, wherever they occur in this filing, are based on CEC management’s current expectations about future events and are necessarily estimates reflecting the best judgment of management and involve a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those suggested by the forward-looking statements.
Investors are cautioned that forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance or results and involve risks and uncertainties that cannot be predicted or quantified, and, consequently, actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the following factors, as well as other factors described from time to time in CEC’s reports filed with the SEC (including the sections entitled “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” contained therein):

- The effects of CEOC’s bankruptcy filing on CEOC and its subsidiaries and affiliates, including CEC and CAC,
and the interest of various creditors, equity holders, and other constituents;
- CEC’s limited cash balances and sources of available cash, including CEC’s ability (or inability) to secure
additional liquidity to meet its ongoing obligations and its commitments to support the CEOC Restructuring as
     necessary and CEC’s financial obligations exceeding or becoming due earlier than what is currently forecast;

- The ability to retain key employees during the Restructuring;
- The event that the RSAs may not be consummated in accordance with their terms, or persons not party to the
RSAs may successfully challenge the implementation thereof;
- The length of time CEOC will operate in the Chapter 11 cases and CEOC’s failure to comply with the milestones
previously provided by the RSAs or that may be included in other agreements relating to the Restructuring;
- Risks associated with third party motions in the Chapter 11 cases, which may hinder or delay CEOC’s ability to
consummate the Restructuring as contemplated by the RSAs;
- Adverse effects of Chapter 11 proceedings on CEC’s liquidity or results of operations; and
- The Merger may not be consummated or one or more events, changes or other circumstances that could occur
that could give rise to the termination of the Merger Agreement.
You are cautioned to not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this filing. CEC undertakes no obligation to publicly update or release any revisions to these forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this filing or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events, except as required by law.
