(PRESS RELEASE) -- Caesars Entertainment, Inc. today announced a revised agreement to sell the non-US assets of William Hill to 888 Holdings Plc for a revised enterprise value of between £1.95 billion and £2.05 billion. The revised agreement reflects a £250 million reduction in consideration payable at closing and Caesars being entitled to receive up to £100 million as deferred consideration subject to the enlarged business of 888 Holdings Plc meeting certain 2023 financial targets.

The transaction is subject to receipt of the approval of shareholders of 888 Holdings Plc and regulatory approvals. Caesars' expectation is that the transaction should close in June 2022.
