MGM MIRAGE and Dubai World Announce Intention to Commence a Dutch Auction Tender Offer for up to 10,000,000 Shares of MGM MIRAGE Common Stock

January 09, 2008

MGM MIRAGE (NYSE: MGM) and Dubai World today announced that they intend to jointly make a cash tender offer for up to 10,000,000 shares of common stock of MGM MIRAGE at a price per share of not less than $75.00 and not greater than $80.00. The offer price represents an approximately 7.2% to 14.3% premium over MGM MIRAGE's closing stock price of $69.98 on January 8, 2008. As of January 8, 2008, MGM MIRAGE had 293,764,426 shares issued and outstanding.

Tracinda Corporation is the beneficial owner of 153,837,330 shares of MGM MIRAGE common stock, approximately 52.4% of the outstanding shares as of January 8, 2008. Tracinda has informed MGM MIRAGE that it will not tender any of its shares.

Dubai World, through its affiliates Infinity World (Cayman) L.P. and Infinity World Investments LLC, is the beneficial owner of 19,548,838 shares of MGM MIRAGE common stock, approximately 6.7% of the outstanding shares as of January 8, 2008. It is anticipated that the bidder on behalf of Dubai World will be Infinity World (Cayman) L.P. ("Infinity World").

With respect to the shares of MGM MIRAGE common stock that are tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the offer, each of MGM MIRAGE and Infinity World will purchase 50% of said shares.

Under the procedures for a Dutch Auction tender offer, MGM MIRAGE's stockholders will have the opportunity to tender some or all of their shares at a price within the $75.00 to $80.00 range per share. Based on the number of shares tendered and the prices specified by the tendering stockholders, MGM MIRAGE and Infinity World will determine the lowest per share price within the range that will enable them to buy an aggregate of 10,000,000 shares, or such lesser number of shares that are properly tendered and not withdrawn. All shares accepted in the tender offer will be purchased at the same determined price per share regardless of whether the stockholder tendered at a lower price. If more than 10,000,000 shares are properly tendered and not withdrawn at or below the determined price per share, then MGM MIRAGE and Infinity World will purchase shares tendered by those stockholders owning fewer than 100 shares without pro ration, and all other shares will be purchased on a pro rata basis, subject to the conditional tender offer provisions that will be described in the offer to purchase that will be distributed to stockholders. Stockholders whose shares are purchased in the offer will be paid the determined purchase price net in cash, without interest, after the expiration of the offer period. The offer is not contingent upon any financing condition or any minimum number of shares being tendered. The offer is subject, however, to a number of other customary terms and conditions to be specified in the offer to purchase that will be distributed to stockholders. No brokerage fees or commissions will be charged to holders who tender their shares.

Neither MGM MIRAGE, its Board of Directors, nor Dubai World and its affiliates are making any recommendation to stockholders as to whether to tender or refrain from tendering their shares into the tender offer. Stockholders must decide how many shares they will tender, if any, and the price within the stated range at which they will offer their shares for purchase by MGM MIRAGE and Infinity World.
