Pinnacle Entertainment Announces Pricing of $325 Million in Aggregate Amount of 7.75% Senior Subordinated Notes Due 2022

LAS VEGAS, March 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc. (NYSE: PNK) announced today that it has priced a public offering of $325 million aggregate principal amount of senior subordinated notes due 2022.  The notes will be issued at a price equal to par.  The closing of the note offering is conditioned on the prior or simultaneous closing of the term loan offering announced by the Company today. 

The Company intends to use the net proceeds of this offering and the term loan to redeem our 7.5% senior subordinated notes due 2015 at a redemption price equal to 103.750% of par, plus accrued and unpaid interest.  We intend to send a 15-day conditional redemption notice to the holders of such notes and terminate the tender offer for such notes.  The redemption is conditioned upon the closing and receipt of sufficient net proceeds from the offering and term loan to redeem the notes.  The Company intends to use a portion of the net proceeds of the term loan to repay all revolving credit borrowings outstanding under its credit facility. The Company expects to redraw revolver borrowings to fund its development projects as construction proceeds.  The Company also expects to use the remaining net proceeds from the offering, if any, for general corporate purposes, including funding its development projects such as L'Auberge Baton Rouge.

A registration statement on Form S-3, File No. 333-179890, relating to the notes has been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and became effective upon filing.  J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, Barclays Capital Inc., Credit Agricole Securities (USA) Inc., Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., and UBS Securities LLC acted as joint book running managers for the offering and Capital One Southcoast, Inc. and Wells Fargo Securities, LLC acted as co-managers for the offering.
