The name, citizenship, present principal occupation or employment and business address of each director and executive officer of the Reporting Persons are set forth in Schedule A attached hereto.

None of the Reporting Persons nor any manager or executive officer of the Reporting Persons, has, during the past five years, (a) been convicted in a criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors), or (b) been a party to a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of competent jurisdiction and as a result of such proceeding was or is subject to a judgment, decree or final order enjoining future violations of, or prohibiting, or mandating activities subject to, Federal or State securities laws or a finding of any violation with respect to such laws.


Item 3.  Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration

The Reporting Persons may be deemed to be the beneficial owner of, in the aggregate, 66,053,725 Shares (including Shares underlying the Convertible Bonds). Of such Shares, 60,329,304 Shares were purchased by the Reporting Persons collectively for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $566.6 million. The remaining 5,724,421 Shares may be deemed beneficially owned by the Reporting Persons as a result of beneficially owning the Convertible Bonds (see Item 5), which were acquired at a purchase price of approximately $79.4 million.

The source of funding for the Shares held by the Reporting Persons (including Shares underlying the Convertible Bonds) was the general working capital of the respective purchasers. The Shares held by the Reporting Persons are held in margin accounts together with other securities. Such margin accounts may from time to time have debit balances. Part of the purchase price of such Shares was obtained through margin borrowing.




Item 4.  Purpose of Transaction

The Reporting Persons acquired their positions in the Shares in the belief that the Shares were undervalued. The Reporting Persons have spoken to, and intend to continue to speak with, representatives of the Issuer's board of directors and management to discuss enhancing shareholder value, improving asset optimization and seeking board representation, including, if necessary, by nominating a slate of directors at the 2019 Annual Meeting. We also intend to have discussions with other stockholders to understand their perspectives and priorities.

The Reporting Persons believe the Board should conduct a strategic process to comprehensively assess the best path forward for Caesars and believe that shareholder value might be best served, and enhanced, by selling the company. We believe that our brand of activism is well-suited to the situation at Caesars, which requires new thought, new leadership and new strategies and have acquired a substantial investment in the Issuer in the belief that it will provide us with significant influence in the company’s future. We look forward to holding discussions with the Board, and importantly, we expect the Issuer to refrain from appointing a new CEO (or further extending Mark Frissora’s tenure), until we have had an opportunity to meaningfully engage with the Board.

The Reporting Persons are considering all their options and, while they have no present plan to do so (except as otherwise disclosed in this Item 4), they reserve the right and are considering whether to propose other transactions which relate to or would result in one or more of the actions specified in clauses (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D.

The Reporting Persons may, from time to time and at any time: (i) acquire additional Shares and/or other equity, debt, notes, instruments or other securities of the Issuer and/or its affiliates (collectively, "Securities") in the open market or otherwise; (ii) dispose of any or all of their Securities in the open market or otherwise; or (iii) engage in any hedging or similar transactions with respect to the Securities.


Item 5.  Interest in Securities of the Issuer

(a) The Reporting Persons may be deemed to beneficially own, in the aggregate, 66,053,725 Shares (including 5,724,421 Shares underlying the Convertible Bonds), representing approximately 9.78% of the Issuer's outstanding Shares. The Reporting Persons beneficially own $41.2 million of the Issuer’s 5.00% Convertible Senior Notes due 2024 (the “Convertible Bonds”), which are convertible into 5,724,421 Shares, subject to adjustment. (The Reporting Persons’ percentage ownership of the Issuer’s outstanding Shares is based upon 675,457,421 Shares outstanding, which is the sum of (i) the 669,733,000 Shares stated to be outstanding at October 30, 2018 by the Issuer in the Issuer’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 2, 2018 and (ii) 5,724,421 Shares, which is the number of Shares underlying the Convertible Bonds beneficially owned by the Reporting Persons).

(b) High River has sole voting power and sole dispositive power with regard to 13,210,746 Shares (including Shares underlying the Convertible Bonds). Each of Hopper, Barberry and Mr. Icahn has shared voting power and shared dispositive power with regard to such Shares. Icahn Master has sole voting power and sole dispositive power with regard to 21,875,802 Shares (including Shares underlying the Convertible Bonds). Each of Icahn Offshore, Icahn Capital, IPH, Icahn Enterprises Holdings, Icahn Enterprises GP, Beckton and Mr. Icahn has shared voting power and shared dispositive power with regard to such Shares. Icahn Partners has sole voting power and sole dispositive power with regard to 30,967,177 Shares (including Shares underlying the Convertible Bonds). Each of Icahn Onshore, Icahn Capital, IPH, Icahn Enterprises Holdings, Icahn Enterprises GP, Beckton and Mr. Icahn has shared voting power and shared dispositive power with regard to such Shares.

Each of Hopper, Barberry and Mr. Icahn, by virtue of their relationships to High River (as disclosed in Item 2), may be deemed to indirectly beneficially own (as that term is defined in Rule 13d-3 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the “Act”) the Shares which High River directly beneficially owns. Each of Hopper, Barberry and Mr. Icahn disclaims beneficial ownership of such Shares for all other purposes. Each of Icahn Offshore, Icahn Capital, IPH, Icahn Enterprises Holdings, Icahn Enterprises GP, Beckton and Mr. Icahn, by virtue of their relationships to Icahn Master (as disclosed in Item 2), may be deemed to indirectly beneficially own (as that term is defined in Rule 13d-3 under the Act) the Shares which Icahn Master directly beneficially owns.

Each of Icahn Onshore, Icahn Capital, IPH, Icahn Enterprises Holdings, Icahn Enterprises GP, Beckton and Mr. Icahn, by virtue of their relationships to Icahn Partners (as disclosed in Item 2), may be deemed to indirectly beneficially own (as that term is defined in Rule 13d-3 under the Act) the Shares which Icahn Partners directly beneficially owns. Each of Icahn Onshore, Icahn Capital, IPH, Icahn Enterprises Holdings, Icahn Enterprises GP, Beckton and Mr. Icahn disclaims beneficial ownership of such Shares for all other purposes.
