Note 1 - Organization

Organization

Wynn Resorts, Limited, a Nevada corporation (together with its subsidiaries, "Wynn Resorts" or the "Company") is a designer, developer, owner and operator of destination casino resorts. In the Macau Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China ("Macau"), the Company owns approximately 72% of Wynn Macau, Limited ("WML"), which includes the operations of the Wynn Palace and Wynn Macau resorts. The Company refers to Wynn Palace and Wynn Macau as its Macau Operations. In Las Vegas, Nevada, the Company operates and, with the exception of certain retail space, owns 100% of Wynn Las Vegas. Additionally, the Company is a 50.1% owner and managing member of a joint venture that owns and leases certain retail space at Wynn Las Vegas (the "Retail Joint Venture"). The Company refers to Wynn Las Vegas and the Retail Joint Venture as its Las Vegas Operations.

Development Projects

The Company is currently constructing Encore Boston Harbor, an integrated casino resort in Everett, Massachusetts, adjacent to Boston along the Mystic River. The resort will contain a hotel, a waterfront boardwalk, meeting and convention space, casino space, a spa, retail offerings, and food and beverage outlets. The Company expects to open Encore Boston Harbor in mid-2019.

The Company is currently constructing an approximately 430,000 square foot meeting and convention facility at Wynn Las Vegas and has begun construction activities in connection with the reconfiguration of the Wynn Las Vegas golf course, which the Company closed in the fourth quarter of 2017. The Company expects to reopen the golf course in the fourth quarter of 2019 and open the additional meeting and convention facility in the first quarter of 2020.

Note 2 -    Basis of Presentation and Significant Accounting Policies

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared by the Company pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations, although the Company believes that the disclosures herein are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. In the opinion of management, the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments, which are of a normal recurring nature, necessary to a fair presentation of the results for the interim periods presented. The results for the three months ended March 31, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the full fiscal year. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018

Principles of Consolidation

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, its majority-owned subsidiaries and entities the Company identifies as variable interest entities ("VIE") of which the Company is determined to be the primary beneficiary. For information on the Company's VIEs, see Note 15 "Retail Joint Venture." All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

Investment Securities

Investment securities consist of domestic and foreign short-term and long-term investments in corporate bonds, commercial paper, and U.S. government agency bonds reported at fair value, with unrealized gains and losses, net of tax, reported in other comprehensive income (loss). As of March 31, 2018, investment securities consisted of domestic and foreign corporate bonds with an amortized cost and fair value of $129.7 million. As of March 31, 2019, the Company had no investment securities.

The Company assesses for indicators of other-than-temporary impairment on a quarterly basis. The Company determines whether (i) it does not have the intent to sell any of these investments, and (ii) it will not likely be required to sell these investments prior to the recovery of the amortized cost. During the three months ended March 31, 2018, the Company determined it had an other-than-temporary impairment and recorded a loss of $1.7 million.

Leases

Lessee Arrangements    

The Company is the lessee under non-cancelable real estate and equipment leases. Beginning on January 1, 2019 (the date of the Company's adoption of Topic 842, as defined and discussed further in "Recently Adopted Accounting Standards"), operating lease assets and liabilities are measured and recorded upon lease commencement at the present value of the future minimum lease payments. The Company combines lease and nonlease components in its determination of minimum lease payments, except for certain asset classes that have significant nonlease components. As the interest rate implicit in its leases is not readily determinable, the Company uses its incremental borrowing rate to determine the present value of lease payments. The Company does not record an asset or liability for operating leases with a term of less than one year. Variable lease costs generally arise from changes in an index, such as the consumer price index. Variable lease costs are expensed as incurred and are not included in the determination of lease assets or liabilities. Prior to the adoption of Topic 842 on January 1, 2019, the Company did not record an asset or liability for any of its operating leases.

Lessor Arrangements

The Company is the lessor under non-cancelable operating leases for retail and food and beverage outlet space at its integrated resorts, which represents approximately 99,000, 58,000, and 142,000 square feet of space at Wynn Palace, Wynn Macau, and Wynn Las Vegas, respectively. The lease arrangements generally include minimum base rent and contingent rental clauses based on a percentage of net sales. Generally, the terms of the leases range between five and 10 years. The Company records revenue on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease, and recognizes revenue for contingent rentals when the contingency has been resolved. The Company has elected to combine lease and nonlease components for the purpose of measuring lease revenue. Revenue is recorded in entertainment, retail and other revenue on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

Gaming Taxes

The Company is subject to taxes based on gross gaming revenues in the jurisdictions in which it operates, subject to applicable jurisdictional adjustments. These gaming taxes are recorded as casino expenses in the accompanying Consolidated Statements of Operations. These taxes totaled $589.0 million and $610.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

Pre-opening expenses

Pre-opening expenses represent personnel, advertising, and other costs incurred prior to the opening of new ventures and are expensed as incurred. During the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company incurred pre-opening expenses primarily in connection with the development of Encore Boston Harbor.

Recently Adopted Accounting Standards

Leases

In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2016-02, Leases ("Topic 842"), which requires recognition of lease assets and liabilities on the balance sheet and disclosure of additional information about leasing activities. The Company adopted this standard using a modified retrospective transition approach with an initial application date of January 1, 2019. As a result, prior periods were not retrospectively adjusted and are not comparable to current periods. The Company elected the practical expedient permitting lessees to carry forward historical lease classifications for existing arrangements. The following is a summary of the significant impacts on the Company's balance sheet as of January 1, 2019:

The Company recognized operating lease assets and liabilities of $154.1 million, which represented the discounted future minimum lease payments of all existing leases on the initial application date.
The net carrying amount of a definite-lived intangible asset, which related to a leasehold interest in land and totaled $88.1 million, was reclassified to operating lease assets.
Leasehold interests in land, net, which totaled $206.9 million, were reclassified to operating lease assets from property and equipment, net.
Certain other initial direct cost assets, prepaid lease assets, and deferred rent accrued liabilities were reclassified to operating lease assets.

As the Company elected to carry forward historical lease classifications, an arrangement concluded to contain a capital lease under the previous standard was deemed a finance lease under Topic 842, with no resultant change in accounting other than the reclassification of associated initial direct costs from other assets to property and equipment, net. There was no impact on the Company's operating income, net income or cash flows as a result of adopting Topic 842.

Accounting Standards Issued But Not Yet Adopted

Financial Instruments - Credit Losses

The FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326) in 2016. The new guidance replaces the incurred loss impairment methodology in current U.S. GAAP with a methodology that reflects expected credit losses and requires consideration of a broader range of reasonable and supportable information to inform credit loss estimates. For trade and other receivables, loans and other financial instruments, the Company will be required to use a forward-looking expected loss model rather than the incurred loss model for recognizing credit losses which reflects losses that are probable. The new guidance will be effective for the Company beginning January 1, 2020. Application of the amendments is through a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the effective date. The Company is currently assessing the impact the guidance will have on its Consolidated Financial Statements and related disclosures.

Wynn Resorts Term Loan

On October 30, 2018, the Company and certain subsidiaries of the Company entered into a credit agreement (as subsequently amended, the "Credit Agreement") to provide for a $500.0 million six-year term loan facility (the "WRL Term Loan I"). On March 8, 2019, the Company, certain subsidiaries of the Company, and certain incremental term facility lenders entered into an incremental joinder agreement that amended the Credit Agreement to, among other things, provide the Company with an additional $250.0 million term loan (the "WRL Term Loan II" and, collectively with the WRL Term Loan I, the "Wynn Resorts Term Loan"), on substantially similar terms as the WRL Term Loan I. The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the WRL Term Loan II for general corporate purposes, including without limitation, repurchases of the Company's common stock, investments in subsidiaries, and/or capital expenditures.

The Credit Agreement provides for quarterly principal repayments beginning in 2019, with a final installment of $706.9 million due upon maturity on October 30, 2024.

The Credit Agreement contains customary representations and warranties, events of default and negative and affirmative covenants, including, among other things, limitations on: indebtedness; investments; restricted payments; mergers and acquisitions; payment of indebtedness; negative pledges; liens; transactions with affiliates and sales of assets. In addition, the Credit Agreement contains a requirement that the Company must make mandatory prepayments of indebtedness equal to 50.0% of excess cash flow

if the leverage ratio, as defined in the Credit Agreement, as of the last day of the applicable fiscal year is greater than 4.5 to 1 prior to the year of opening of Encore Boston Harbor or is greater than 4.0 to 1 thereafter. There is no mandatory prepayment in respect of excess cash flow if the Company's Consolidated First Lien Secured Leverage Ratio is equal to or less than 4.5 to 1.

Wynn Group Asia, Inc. and Wynn Resorts Holdings, LLC, each a direct, wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (collectively, the "Guarantors"), guarantee the obligations of the Company under the Credit Agreement. The Company will pledge all of the equity interests in the Guarantors to the extent permitted by applicable law. 

Commitment Letter

On March 8, 2019, in connection with the WRL Term Loan II, the Company agreed to terminate the remaining $250.0 million of the lenders' commitments under the commitment letter. Accordingly, there are no remaining commitments under the commitment letter.

Redemption Price Promissory Note

On February 18, 2012, pursuant to its articles of incorporation, the Company redeemed and canceled all Aruze USA, Inc.'s ("Aruze") 24,549,222 shares of Wynn Resorts' common stock. In connection with the redemption of the shares, the Company issued a promissory note (the "Redemption Note") with a principal amount of $1.94 billion, a maturity date of February 18, 2022 and an interest rate of 2% per annum, payable annually in arrears on each anniversary of the date of the Redemption Note. The Redemption Note was recorded at fair value in accordance with applicable accounting guidance. The Company repaid the principal amount in full on March 30, 2018. On March 30, 2018, the Company also paid an additional $463.6 million in settlement of certain legal claims concerning the Redemption Note, which is recorded as a litigation settlement expense on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

Fair Value of Long-Term Debt

The estimated fair value of the Company's long-term debt as of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, was approximately $9.08 billion and $8.97 billion, respectively, compared to its carrying value, excluding debt issuance costs and original issue discount and premium, of $9.29 billion and $9.54 billion. The estimated fair value of the Company's long-term debt is based on recent trades, if available, and indicative pricing from market information (Level 2 inputs).

(1) Casino outstanding chips represent amounts owed to junkets and customers for chips in their possession, and casino front money deposits represent funds deposited by customers before gaming play occurs. These amounts are included in customer deposits on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and may be recognized as revenue or redeemed for cash in the future.

These amounts are included in customer deposits on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and will be recognized as revenue when the goods or services are provided or the events are held. Decreases in this balance generally represent the recognition of revenue and increases in the balance represent additional deposits made by customers. The deposits are expected to primarily be recognized as revenue within one year.
(3) Other gaming-related liabilities generally represent unpaid wagers primarily in the form of unredeemed slot, race and sportsbook tickets or wagers for future sporting events. The amounts are included in other accrued liabilities on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.

Certain members of the Company's executive management team receive a portion of their annual incentive bonus in shares of the Company's stock. The number of shares is determined based on the closing stock price on the date the annual incentive bonus is settled. As the number of shares is variable, the Company records a liability for the fixed monetary amount over the service period. The Company recorded stock-based compensation expense associated with these awards of $1.9 million and $1.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018.

Note 11 - Income Taxes

The Company recognized income tax expense of $1.7 million and an income tax benefit of $111.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. The 2019 income tax expense primarily related to the increase in the valuation allowance for U.S foreign tax credits and the 2018 income tax benefit primarily related to the settlement of the Redemption Note.

The Company records valuation allowances on certain of its U.S. and foreign deferred tax assets. In assessing the need for a valuation allowance, the Company considers whether it is more likely than not that the deferred tax assets will be realized. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income. In the assessment of the valuation allowance, appropriate consideration is given to all positive and negative evidence including recent operating profitability, forecast of future earnings and the duration of statutory carryforward periods.

Wynn Macau SA received a five-year exemption from Macau's 12% Complementary Tax on casino gaming profits through December 31, 2020. Accordingly, for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company was exempt from the payment of such taxes totaling $22.8 million and $26.9 million, respectively. The Company's non-gaming profits remain subject to the Macau Complementary Tax and its casino winnings remain subject to the Macau special gaming tax and other levies in accordance with its concession agreement.

Note 12 - Earnings Per Share

Basic earnings per share ("EPS") is computed by dividing net income (loss) attributable to Wynn Resorts by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted EPS is computed by dividing net income (loss) attributable to Wynn Resorts by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period increased to include the number of additional shares of common stock that would have been outstanding if the potential dilutive securities had been issued. Potentially dilutive securities include outstanding stock options and unvested restricted stock.

Ground Leases
Undeveloped Land - Las Vegas
    
The Company leases approximately 16 acres of undeveloped land directly across Las Vegas Boulevard from Wynn Las Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada, which expires in 2097. The ground lease payments, which increase at a fixed rate over the term of the lease, are $3.8 million per year until 2023 and total payments of $367.8 million thereafter. As of March 31, 2019, the liability associated with this lease was $62.3 million.

At March 31, 2019, operating lease assets included approximately $87.8 million related to an amount allocated to the leasehold interest in land upon the acquisition of a group of assets in 2018. The Company expects that the amortization of this amount will be $1.1 million each year from 2020 through 2096 and $0.7 million in 2097.

Macau Land Concessions

Wynn Palace and Wynn Macau were built on land that is leased under Macau land concession contracts each with terms of 25 years from May 2012 and August 2004, respectively, which may be renewed with government approval for successive 10-year periods in accordance with Macau legislation. The land concession payments are expected to be $1.6 million per year through 2023 and total payments of $17.0 million thereafter through 2037. At March 31, 2019, the total liability associated with these leases was $16.9 million.

At March 31, 2019, operating lease assets included $200.5 million of leasehold interests in land related to the Wynn Palace and Wynn Macau land concessions. The Company expects that the amortization associated with these leasehold interests will be approximately $12.5 million per year from 2020 through 2028 and approximately $9.1 million thereafter through 2037.

Note 14 - Commitments and Contingencies

Litigation

In addition to the actions noted below, the Company and its affiliates are involved in litigation arising in the normal course of business. In the opinion of management, such litigation is not expected to have a material effect on the Company's financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.

Aruze and Affiliates Litigation

On February 18, 2012, the Board of Directors of Wynn Resorts determined that Kazuo Okada, Universal Entertainment Corp. and Aruze and related parties (the "Okada Parties") were "unsuitable persons" under Article VII of the Company's articles and redeemed and canceled Aruze's 24,549,222 shares of Wynn Resorts' common stock, and, pursuant to its articles of incorporation, Wynn Resorts issued the Redemption Note to Aruze in redemption of the shares. The next day, Wynn Resorts filed an action alleging breaches of fiduciary duty and related claims (the "Redemption Action"). The Okada Parties denied the claims and asserted counterclaims.

On March 8, 2018, the Company entered into a settlement agreement (the "Settlement Agreement") by and between the Company and its individual directors and officers (the "Wynn Parties"), and Universal Entertainment Corp. and Aruze (collectively, with Universal Entertainment Corp., the "Universal Parties"). The Settlement Agreement resolved legal proceedings pending between the settling parties in the Redemption Action. The Universal Parties further released any claims against the Wynn Parties and their affiliates in any other jurisdiction, including but not limited to a proceeding pending in Macau against Wynn Resorts (Macau) S.A. ("Wynn Macau SA") and certain related individuals ("Macau Litigation"). As a result of the Settlement Agreement, the parties to the agreement dismissed all litigation between the Universal Parties and the Company and its then-directors and executives with respect to the redemption, including the Redemption Action and the Macau Litigation, but did not release Kazuo Okada. Subsequently the Company voluntarily dismissed its claim for breach of fiduciary duty against Kazuo Okada, which was the last and only remaining claim between Wynn Resorts, Kazuo Okada, and the Universal Parties in the Redemption Action.

On July 3, 2015, Wynn Macau, Limited announced that the Okada Parties filed a complaint in the Court of First Instance of Macau ("Macau Court") against Wynn Macau SA and certain individuals who are or were directors of Wynn Macau SA or WML (collectively, the "Wynn Macau Parties"). The principal allegations in the lawsuit were that the redemption of the Okada Parties' shares in Wynn Resorts was improper and undervalued, that the previously disclosed payment by Wynn Macau SA to an unrelated third party in consideration of relinquishment by that party of certain rights in and to any future development on the land in Cotai where Wynn Palace is located was unlawful, and that the previously disclosed donation by Wynn Resorts to the University of Macau Development Foundation was unlawful. The plaintiffs sought dissolution of Wynn Macau SA and compensatory damages. On July 11, 2017, the Macau Court dismissed all claims by the Okada Parties as unfounded, fined the Okada Parties, and ordered the Okada Parties to pay for court costs and the Wynn Macau Parties' attorney's fees. On or about October 16, 2017, the Okada Parties filed formal appeal papers in Macau, which Wynn Macau SA received on November 21, 2017. Wynn Macau SA filed its response on December 21, 2017. In March 2018, pursuant to the Settlement Agreement, the Universal Parties voluntarily withdrew from the Macau Litigation, leaving Mr. Okada as the sole claimant. On February 21, 2019, the Macau Appellate Panel dismissed Mr. Okada's appeal and no appeal was lodged by Mr. Okada within the prescribed time, resulting in the final resolution of the lawsuit in favor of the Wynn Macau Parties.

Derivative Litigation Related to Redemption Action

Two state derivative actions were commenced against the Company and all members of its Board of Directors in the Eighth Judicial District Court of Clark County, Nevada by the IBEW Local 98 Pension Fund and Danny Hinson (collectively, the "Derivative Plaintiffs"). The Derivative Plaintiffs filed a consolidated complaint on July 20, 2012 asserting various claims relating to the Redemption Action. On March 15, 2019, the parties filed a stipulation and order to dismiss the action, with prejudice, which the court entered on March 18, 2019. Neither the Company nor any of the individual defendants made any form of payment in exchange for the dismissal of the action.
Massachusetts Gaming License Related Actions

On September 17, 2014, the Massachusetts Gaming Commission ("MGC") designated Wynn MA the award winner of the Greater Boston (Region A) gaming license. On November 7, 2014, the gaming license became effective.

Suffolk Action

On September 17, 2018, Sterling Suffolk Racecourse, LLC, owner of the property proposed for location of a casino by an unsuccessful bidder for the Greater Boston (Region) A gaming license filed a complaint in the United States District Court, District of Massachusetts, against Wynn Resorts, Wynn MA, certain current and former officers of Wynn Resorts, FBT Everett Realty, LLC, former owner of the land on which Encore Boston Harbor is located ("FBT") and Paul Lohnes, a member of FBT. The complaint alleges, among other things, the defendants engaged in conduct in violation of the Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organizations Act, conspired to circumvent the application process for the Greater Boston (Region A) gaming license and violated Massachusetts law with respect to unfair methods of competition. The plaintiff seeks $1 billion in compensatory damages and treble damages pursuant to applicable law. All defendants filed motions to dismiss the complaint, and several separately filed special motions to dismiss pursuant to the Massachusetts Anti-SLAPP statute. In response to the various dispositive motions, on February 15, 2019, the plaintiff filed an amended complaint that substantially repeats its earlier allegations and adds new allegations in support of its existing claims against the defendants. On March 8, 2019, the defendants refiled various motions to dismiss the amended complaint. On May 7, 2019, the court held a hearing on the motions to dismiss and took the matter under advisement, staying all discovery pending a decision on the motions to dismiss.

The Company will vigorously defend against the claims asserted. This action is in preliminary stages and management has determined that based on proceedings to date, it is currently unable to determine the probability of the outcome of this action or the range of reasonably possible loss, if any.

Revere Action

On October 16, 2014, the City of Revere, the host community to the unsuccessful bidder for the same license, and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local 103 ("IBEW") filed a complaint against the MGC and each of the five gaming commissioners in Suffolk Superior Court in Boston, Massachusetts (the "Revere Action"). The complaint challenges the MGC's decision and alleges that the MGC failed to follow statutory requirements outlined in the Gaming Act. The complaint (1) seeks to appeal the administrative decision, (2) asserts that certiorari provides a remedy to correct errors in proceedings by an agency such as the MGC, (3) challenges the constitutionality of that section of the gaming law which bars judicial review of the MGC's decision to deny an applicant a gaming license, and (4) alleges violations of the open meeting law requirements. The court allowed Mohegan Sun ("Mohegan"), the other applicant for the Greater Boston (Region A) gaming license, to intervene in the Revere Action, and on February 23, 2015, Mohegan filed its complaint. The Mohegan complaint challenges the license award to Wynn MA, seeks judicial review of the MGC's decision, and seeks to vacate the MGC's license award to Wynn MA.

On July 1, 2015, the MGC filed motions to dismiss Mohegan's and the City of Revere's complaints. On December 3, 2015, the court granted the motion to dismiss the claims asserted in the Revere Action. Also on December 3, 2015, the court granted the motion to dismiss three of the four counts asserted by Mohegan but denied the motion as to Mohegan's certiorari claim. The City of Revere and IBEW sought immediate appellate review of the dismissal of their claims and the MGC requested immediate appellate review of the court's denial of the MGC's motion to dismiss Mohegan's certiorari claim. All three petitions for interlocutory review were denied. The parties then appealed to the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ("SJC"). On March 10, 2017, the SJC affirmed the trial court's dismissal of the City of Revere's claims and IBEW's claims. The SJC affirmed the court's dismissal of Mohegan's claims except for the certiorari claim, which the SJC remanded to the Suffolk Superior Court. Mohegan filed a motion for judgment on the pleadings on November 3, 2017, a hearing on which has not yet been rescheduled. The MGC and Mohegan are assembling the administrative record for review by the court.

The SJC reversed the trial court's dismissal of the individual plaintiffs' open meeting law claim and remanded that claim to the Suffolk Superior Court. The parties have completed discovery. The MGC filed a motion for summary judgment and oral argument, which is scheduled for hearing on May 14, 2019.

Wynn MA was not named in the Revere Action. The MGC retained private legal representation at its own nontaxpayer-funded expense.

Massachusetts Gaming Commission Investigation

On January 31, 2018, the Investigations & Enforcement Bureau ("IEB") of the MGC announced it had commenced an investigation into the Company's ongoing suitability as a gaming licensee in that jurisdiction. The Company fully cooperated with the IEB's investigation, and the IEB published the findings of its investigation in a report dated March 15, 2019. A three-day

adjudicatory hearing before the MGC was held on April 2, 2019 through April 4, 2019. On April 30, 2019, the MGC concluded its investigation by determining the Company and Wynn MA are suitable to maintain a Massachusetts gaming license, subject to the Company’s payment of a fine of $35 million and fulfillment of other conditions set forth in the MGC decision. The fine of $35 million is included in other accrued liabilities as of March 31, 2019 on the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. The Company is currently reviewing the MGC decision and evaluating its rights under applicable law.

Nevada Gaming Control Board Investigation

On January 25, 2019, the Nevada Gaming Control Board completed its investigation, which had commenced in 2018, and filed a complaint against the Company and its indirect subsidiary, Wynn Las Vegas, LLC ("NGCB Respondents"). Also on January 25, 2019, the NGCB Respondents entered into a Stipulation for Settlement with the Nevada Gaming Control Board in connection with its complaint, under which, among other things, the NGCB Respondents agreed to pay a fine in an amount to be determined by the Nevada Gaming Commission, and the Nevada Gaming Control Board agreed not to seek to revoke or limit the NGCB Respondents' licenses, findings of suitability or any other approvals of the Nevada Gaming Commission. On February 26, 2019, the Nevada Gaming Commission approved the Stipulation for Settlement and fined the Company $20.0 million, which was paid during the three months ended March 31, 2019.

Derivative Litigation

A number of stockholder derivative actions have been filed purportedly on behalf of the Company in state and federal court located in Clark County, Nevada against certain current and former members of the Company's Board of Directors and, in some cases, the Company's current and former officers. Each of the complaints alleges, among other things, breach of fiduciary duties in failing to detect, prevent and remedy alleged inappropriate personal conduct by Mr. Wynn in the workplace. On September 19, 2018, the Board established a Special Litigation Committee (the "SLC") to investigate the allegations in the State Derivative Case (as defined below).
 
The actions filed in the Eighth Judicial District Court of Clark County, Nevada have been consolidated as In re Wynn Resorts, Ltd. Derivative Litigation ("State Derivative Case"). In September 2018, the court denied the Company's motion to dismiss, and the Company filed a writ petition appealing the denial to the Nevada Supreme Court. In October 2018, the Nevada Supreme Court denied the Company's writ petition. On October 26, 2018, the SLC filed a motion to intervene and stay the case pending completion of its investigation. On November 14, 2018, the court granted the SLC's motion and stayed the case, with the exception of limited document requests, for a period of 120 days. On March 25, 2019, the SLC submitted a motion for a 90-day extension of the SLC Stay. The motion is currently pending before the court. The SLC's investigation is ongoing.

In 2018, several actions filed in the United States District Court, District of Nevada were consolidated as In re Wynn Resorts, Ltd. Derivative Litigation ("Federal Derivative Case"), which also claim corporate waste and violation of Section 14(a) of the Exchange Act. In June 2018, the Company filed a motion to dismiss and a motion to stay pending resolution of the Securities Action. On March 29, 2019, the Court granted the Company's request for a stay.
 
On March 25, 2019, a separate stockholder derivative action was filed purportedly on behalf of the Company in the United States District Court, District of Nevada alleging identical causes of action as the Federal Derivative Case with the additional allegation that the Board of Directors improperly refused the stockholder's demand to commence litigation against the officers and directors of the Company.
 
Each of the actions seeks to recover for the Company unspecified damages, including restitution and disgorgement of profits, and also seeks to recover attorneys' fees, costs and related expenses for the plaintiff. 

Individual Stockholder Actions

A number of stockholders have filed individual actions in the Eighth Judicial District Court of Clark County, Nevada against certain current and former members of the Company's Board of Directors and the Company's current and former officers ("Individual Stockholder Actions"). Each of the complaints alleges that defendants, among other things, breached their fiduciary duties in failing to detect, prevent and remedy alleged inappropriate personal conduct by Mr. Wynn in the workplace causing injury to each of the individual stockholders.

On January 31, 2019, the judge presiding over the State Derivative Case coordinated the Individual Stockholder Actions with the State Derivative Case (together the "State Court Stockholder Actions"). While the court denied defendants' motion to transfer

the State Court Stockholder Actions to a different judge, it stayed the actions pending the resolution of the defendants' appeal of that denial to the Nevada Supreme Court. On April 15, 2019, the Nevada Supreme Court stayed the Individual Stockholder Actions, but deferred to the District Court as to whether the State Derivative Case should be stayed.

Securities Action
 
On February 20, 2018, a putative securities class action was filed against the Company and certain current and former officers of the Company in the United States District Court, Southern District of New York (which was subsequently transferred to the United States District Court, District of Nevada) by John V. Ferris and Joann M. Ferris on behalf of all persons who purchased the Company's common stock between February 28, 2014 and January 25, 2018. The complaint alleges, among other things, certain violations of federal securities laws and seeks to recover unspecified damages as well as attorneys' fees, costs and related expenses for the plaintiffs. On March 1, 2019 the lead plaintiffs' filed their amended complaint. The defendants in these actions filed a motion to dismiss on March 15, 2019, as part of a briefing schedule that will conclude in July 2019.
 
The defendants in these actions will vigorously defend against the claims pleaded against them. These actions are in preliminary stages and management has determined that based on proceedings to date, it is currently unable to determine the probability of the outcome of these actions or the range of reasonably possible loss, if any.

Note 15 - Retail Joint Venture

As of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the Retail Joint Venture had total assets of $96.7 million and $85.0 million, respectively, and total liabilities of $627.7 million and $619.6 million, respectively. The Retail Joint Venture's total liabilities as of March 31, 2019 included long-term debt of $611.3 million, net of debt issuance costs, related to the outstanding borrowings under the Retail Term Loan.

Note 16 - Segment Information

The Company reviews the results of operations for each of its operating segments. Wynn Macau and Encore, an expansion at Wynn Macau, are managed as a single integrated resort and have been aggregated as one reportable segment ("Wynn Macau"). Wynn Palace is presented as a separate reportable segment and is combined with Wynn Macau for geographical presentation. Wynn Las Vegas, Encore, an expansion at Wynn Las Vegas, and the Retail Joint Venture are managed as a single integrated resort and have been aggregated as one reportable segment ("Las Vegas Operations"). The Company identifies each resort as a reportable segment considering operations within each resort have similar economic characteristics, type of customers, types of services and products, the regulatory environment of the operations and the Company's organizational and management reporting structure.

The Company also reviews construction and development activities for each of its projects under development, in addition to its reportable segments. The Company separately identifies assets for its Encore Boston Harbor development project. Other Macau primarily represents the Company's Macau holding company.

"Adjusted Property EBITDA" is net income (loss) before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, litigation settlement expense, pre-opening expenses, property charges and other, management and license fees, corporate expenses and other, stock-based compensation, gain on extinguishment of debt, change in derivatives fair value, change in Redemption Note fair value and other non-operating income and expenses. Adjusted Property EBITDA is presented exclusively as a supplemental disclosure because management believes that it is widely used to measure the performance, and as a basis for valuation, of gaming companies. Management uses Adjusted Property EBITDA as a measure of the operating performance of its segments and to compare the operating performance of its properties with those of its competitors, as well as a basis for determining certain incentive compensation. The Company also presents Adjusted Property EBITDA because it is used by some investors as a way to measure a company's ability to incur and service debt, make capital expenditures and meet working capital requirements. Gaming companies have historically reported EBITDA as a supplement to GAAP. In order to view the operations of their casinos on a more stand-alone basis, gaming companies, including us, have historically excluded from their EBITDA calculations pre-

opening expenses, property charges, corporate expenses and stock-based compensation, that do not relate to the management of specific casino properties. However, Adjusted Property EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to operating income (loss) as an indicator of the Company's performance, as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity, or as an alternative to any other measure determined in accordance with GAAP. Unlike net income, Adjusted Property EBITDA does not include depreciation or interest expense and therefore does not reflect current or future capital expenditures or the cost of capital. The Company has significant uses of cash flows, including capital expenditures, interest payments, debt principal repayments, income taxes and other non-recurring charges, which are not reflected in Adjusted Property EBITDA. Also, Wynn Resorts' calculation of Adjusted Property EBITDA may be different from the calculation methods used by other companies and, therefore, comparability may be limited.

Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with, and is qualified in its entirety by, the condensed consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto included elsewhere in this Form 10-Q and the consolidated financial statements appearing in our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018. Unless the context otherwise requires, all references herein to the "Company," "we," "us," or "our," or similar terms, refer to Wynn Resorts, Limited, a Nevada corporation, and its consolidated subsidiaries. This discussion and analysis contains forward-looking statements. Please refer to the section below entitled "Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements."

Overview

We are a designer, developer, owner and operator of destination casino resorts. In the Macau Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China ("Macau"), we own approximately 72% of Wynn Macau, Limited ("WML"), which includes the operations of the Wynn Palace and Wynn Macau resorts, which we refer to as our Macau Operations. In Las Vegas, Nevada, we operate and, with the exception of certain retail space, own 100% of Wynn Las Vegas. Additionally, we are a 50.1% owner and managing member of a joint venture that owns and leases certain retail space at Wynn Las Vegas (the "Retail Joint Venture"). We refer to Wynn Las Vegas and the Retail Joint Venture as our Las Vegas Operations. We are currently constructing Encore Boston Harbor, an integrated casino resort in Everett, Massachusetts. We present the operating results of our three resorts in the following segments: Wynn Palace, Wynn Macau, and Las Vegas Operations.

Macau Operations

We operate our Macau Operations under a 20-year casino concession agreement granted by the Macau government in June 2002. We lease from the Macau government approximately 51 acres of land in the Cotai area of Macau where Wynn Palace is located and 16 acres of land in downtown Macau's inner harbor where Wynn Macau is located.

Wynn Palace features the following as of March 31, 2019:

Approximately 424,000 square feet of casino space, offering 24-hour gaming and a full range of games with 326 table games and 1,135 slot machines, private gaming salons and sky casinos;
A luxury hotel with a total of 1,706 guest rooms, suites and villas;
14 food and beverage outlets;
Approximately 106,000 square feet of high-end, brand-name retail space;
Approximately 37,000 square feet of meeting and convention space;
Recreation and leisure facilities, including a gondola ride, health club, spa, salon and pool; and
Public attractions including a performance lake, floral art displays and fine art displays.

Wynn Macau features the following as of March 31, 2019:

Approximately 272,000 square feet of casino space, offering 24-hour gaming and a full range of games with 328 table games and 865 slot machines, private gaming salons, sky casinos and a poker pit;
Two luxury hotel towers with a total of 1,008 guest rooms and suites;
12 food and beverage outlets;
Approximately 59,000 square feet of high-end, brand-name retail space;
Approximately 31,000 square feet of meeting and convention space;
Recreation and leisure facilities, including two health clubs, spas, a salon and a pool; and
A rotunda show featuring a Chinese zodiac-inspired ceiling along with gold "prosperity tree" and "dragon of fortune" attractions.

In response to our evaluation of our Macau Operations and our commitment to creating a unique customer experience, we have made and expect to continue to make enhancements and refinements to these resorts.

Las Vegas Operations

Wynn Las Vegas is located at the intersection of the Las Vegas Strip and Sands Avenue, and occupies approximately 215 acres of land fronting the Las Vegas Strip.

Wynn Las Vegas features the following as of March 31, 2019:

Approximately 194,000 square feet of casino space, offering 24-hour gaming and a full range of games with 233 table games and 1,804 slot machines, private gaming salons, a sky casino, a poker room, and a race and sports book;
Two luxury hotel towers with a total of 4,748 guest rooms, suites and villas;
33 food and beverage outlets;
Approximately 160,000 square feet of high-end, brand-name retail space (the majority of which is owned and operated by the Retail Joint Venture);
Approximately 290,000 square feet of meeting and convention space;
Three nightclubs and a beach club;
Recreation and leisure facilities, including swimming pools, private cabanas, two full service spas and salons, and a wedding chapel; and
A specially designed theater presenting "Le Rêve—The Dream," a water-based theatrical production and a theater presenting entertainment productions and various headliner entertainment acts.

In response to our evaluation of our Las Vegas Operations and our commitment to creating a unique customer experience, we have made and expect to continue to make enhancements and refinements to this resort.

Construction and Development Opportunities

We are currently constructing Encore Boston Harbor, an integrated casino resort in Everett, Massachusetts, adjacent to Boston along the Mystic River. The resort will contain a hotel, a waterfront boardwalk, meeting and convention space, casino space, a spa, retail offerings and food and beverage outlets. The total project budget, including gaming license fees, construction costs, capitalized interest, pre-opening expenses and land costs, is estimated to be approximately $2.6 billion. As of March 31, 2019, we have incurred $2.26 billion in total project costs. We expect to open Encore Boston Harbor in mid-2019.

We are currently constructing an approximately 430,000 square foot meeting and convention facility at Wynn Las Vegas and have begun construction activities in connection with the reconfiguration of the Wynn Las Vegas golf course, which we closed in the fourth quarter of 2017. Based on current designs, we estimate the total project budget to be approximately $425 million. As of March 31, 2019, we have incurred $181.5 million in total project costs. We expect to reopen the golf course in the fourth quarter of 2019 and open the additional meeting and convention space in the first quarter of 2020.

We have begun a reconfiguration of the current Wynn Club gaming area at Wynn Macau. When completed, the enhanced space will consist of approximately 40 mass market table games, a refurbished high-limit slot area, two new restaurants and approximately 7,000 square feet of retail space, and will provide for improved pedestrian access from the boardwalk. We estimate the total project budget to be approximately $62 million. We expect to complete the gaming enhancements and open the new restaurants and retail space in the fourth quarter of 2019.

We are exploring various development opportunities with respect to the approximately 38 acres of land located on the Las Vegas Strip directly across from Wynn Las Vegas.    

We continually seek out new opportunities for additional gaming or related businesses, in the United States, and worldwide.

Key Operating Measures

Certain key operating measures specific to the gaming industry are included in our discussion of our operational performance for the periods for which the Consolidated Statements of Operations are presented. These key operating measures are defined below:

Table drop in mass market for our Macau Operations is the amount of cash that is deposited in a gaming table's drop box plus cash chips purchased at the casino cage.
Table drop for our Las Vegas Operations is the amount of cash and net markers issued that are deposited in a gaming table's drop box.
Rolling chips are non-negotiable identifiable chips that are used to track turnover for purposes of calculating incentives within our Macau Operations' VIP program.
Turnover is the sum of all losing rolling chip wagers within our Macau Operations' VIP program.
Table games win is the amount of table drop or turnover that is retained and recorded as casino revenues. Table games win is before discounts, commissions and the allocation of casino revenues to rooms, food and beverage and other revenues for services provided to casino customers on a complimentary basis.
Slot machine win is the amount of handle (representing the total amount wagered) that is retained by us and is recorded as casino revenues. Slot machine win is after adjustment for progressive accruals and free play, but before discounts and the allocation of casino revenues to rooms, food and beverage and other revenues for services provided to casino customers on a complimentary basis.
Average daily rate ("ADR") is calculated by dividing total room revenues, including complimentaries (less service charges, if any), by total rooms occupied.
Revenue per available room ("REVPAR") is calculated by dividing total room revenues, including complimentaries (less service charges, if any), by total rooms available.
Occupancy is calculated by dividing total occupied rooms, including complimentary rooms, by the total rooms available.

Below is a discussion of the methodologies used to calculate win percentages at our resorts.

In our VIP operations in Macau, customers primarily purchase rolling chips from the casino cage and can only use them to make wagers. Winning wagers are paid in cash chips. The loss of the rolling chips in the VIP operations is recorded as turnover and provides a base for calculating VIP win percentage. It is customary in Macau to measure VIP play using this rolling chip method. We expect our win as a percentage of turnover from these operations to be within the range of 2.7% to 3.0%.

In our mass market operations in Macau, customers may purchase cash chips at either the gaming tables or at the casino cage. The measurements from our VIP and mass market operations are not comparable as the measurement method used in our mass market operations tracks the initial purchase of chips at the table and at the casino cage, while the measurement method from our VIP operations tracks the sum of all losing wagers. Accordingly, the base measurement from the VIP operations is much larger than the base measurement from the mass market operations. As a result, the expected win percentage with the same amount of gaming win is lower in the VIP operations when compared to the mass market operations.

In Las Vegas, customers purchase chips at the gaming tables. The cash and net markers used to purchase chips are deposited in the gaming table's drop box. This is the base of measurement that we use for calculating win percentage in Las Vegas. Each type of table game has its own theoretical win percentage. Our expected table games win percentage in Las Vegas is 22% to 26%.

The decrease in operating revenues was driven by decreases of $94.4 million and $30.5 million from Wynn Macau and our Las Vegas Operations, respectively, partially offset by an increase of $60.8 million from Wynn Palace.

The increase in net income (loss) attributable to Wynn Resorts, Limited was primarily due to a litigation settlement of $463.6 million, partially offset by an income tax benefit of $111.0 million, recorded in the first quarter of 2018.

The decrease in Adjusted Property EBITDA was driven by decreases of $45.9 million, and $34.3 million from Wynn Macau and our Las Vegas Operations, respectively, partially offset by an increase of $10.7 million from Wynn Palace.
