MGM MIRAGE Announces $7 Billion In Credit Facility Financing

November 23, 2004

MGM MIRAGE (NYSE: MGG) announced today that it has entered into a Fourth Amended and Restated Loan Agreement which will provide for a $7.0 billion senior credit facility. The amended and restated facility will be comprised of a $5.5 billion senior revolving credit facility and a $1.5 billion senior term loan facility.

Upon its effectiveness, this agreement amends and restates in its entirety the Company's existing $2.5 billion senior credit facility. The new facility will be effective upon the consummation by the Company of the proposed merger with Mandalay Resort Group ("Mandalay"). Both the senior revolving credit facility and the senior term loan will mature on the fifth anniversary date following their effectiveness.

"Completing this financing marks an important milestone as we combine two outstanding franchises to form a multi-faceted entertainment and hospitality company with an unmatched portfolio of resorts appealing to a broad spectrum of consumers," said Terry Lanni, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of MGM MIRAGE.

"This historic financing package underscores the tremendous confidence our bank group has in our Company, our growth initiatives, as well as our ability to integrate the Mandalay assets," said Jim Murren, President, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer of MGM MIRAGE. "This transaction provides us with the funds necessary to close the Mandalay transaction at extremely attractive rates and creates the foundation to begin exciting new real estate development projects such as CityCenter. We expect to close the Mandalay merger during the first quarter of 2005, once all required approvals are received."

Interest on the new facility will be based on the bank reference rate or reserve adjusted LIBOR rate plus an applicable margin, which ranges from 0.75% to 1.75%. As in the existing facility, to the extent that any of the Company's senior secured notes are secured, the credit facilities will be secured on an equal and ratable basis with such senior secured notes. The security of such senior indebtedness can be released under certain circumstances. Proceeds from these credit facilities can be used to finance the proposed merger with Mandalay, to refinance certain existing indebtedness of the Company and Mandalay, to pay fees and expenses and to provide for working capital and other general corporate purposes. In addition, the new facility provides for customary affirmative, negative and financial covenants, including, but not limited to, a maximum total leverage ratio, maximum senior leverage ratio, and minimum interest coverage ratio.
