MGM MIRAGE was recently recognized by Forbes Magazine as one of the leading companies in the hotel, restaurant and leisure industry. Named a "Global High Performer," MGM MIRAGE was the only company in the gaming industry to receive the recognition.

To identify the top "Global High Performers," Forbes analyzed members of its Global 2000 list which evaluates companies based on sales, profits, assets and market value. Financial and management performance were also key factors in determining the top companies in each category.

Locally, the Nevada Minority Business Development Council (NMBDC) has named MGM MIRAGE as its 2006 "Supplier Diversity Program of the Year" recipient in recognition of the company's efforts to increase minority participation in procurement. This was the first time MGM MIRAGE has received this honor. The award was recently presented at the NMBDC's annual awards gala.
