Any sums received by REIT to which OpCo is entitled shall be held in trust for OpCo on account of said past due rents payable to OpCo, and REIT shall remit any such sums to OpCo within ten (10) days after receipt thereof. OpCo agrees that if OpCo receives any amounts after the Effective Date which are attributable, in whole or in part, to any period after the Effective Date, OpCo shall remit to REIT that portion of the monies so received by OpCo to which REIT is entitled within ten (10) days after receipt thereof;

(vi) all charges and payments under any service contracts in effect with respect to the applicable Golf Course Property; and

(vii) all other income from and expense relating to the applicable Golf Course Property of every type and nature as is customary with the closing of a commercial property transaction in the city and state in which the applicable Golf Course Property is located.

24. PropCo, PropCo 1, and/or the PropCo Subs will enter into one or more long-term, triple-net master leases with CEOC and its subsidiaries with respect to the REIT Assets (other than, for the avoidance of doubt, any Golf Business Assets).

 

25. CEC will contribute cash, including the amount necessary to effectuate the New CEC Common Equity Buyback, and the CEC Convertible Notes to CEOC as a capital contribution (the “CEC Contribution”). The CEC Contribution will not extinguish or otherwise satisfy any outstanding claims CEOC may continue to have against CEC (or CEC’s non-CEOC subsidiaries), which claims will remain outstanding until Step 28, below. CEOC’s minority shareholders will have their CEOC shares cancelled pursuant to the Plan.

 

26. CEOC will distribute to Holders of Claims everything that such Holders are entitled to receive under the Plan, including all common and preferred stock of the REIT and the OpCo Series A Preferred Stock and including any amounts in respect of the New CEC Common Equity Buyback in lieu of OpCo Series A Preferred Stock in satisfaction of such Claims (the “Distribution”). Such Claims will be cancelled immediately after the Distribution (but prior to the CEOC Merger (as defined in Step 28)).

 

27. The PropCo Preferred Equity Call Right and the PropCo Preferred Equity Put Right will be exercised, as applicable.

 

28. CEOC will merge with and into a newly formed Delaware limited liability company, wholly owned by CEC (“CEOC, LLC,” formed on April 26, 2017) with CEOC, LLC surviving (the “CEOC Merger”). As consideration for the CEOC Merger, holders of the OpCo Series A Preferred Stock received in Step 26 will exchange such OpCo Series A Preferred Stock for New CEC Common Equity in such amounts as are set forth in the Plan and taking into account the New CEC Common Equity Buyback. In the CEOC Merger, CEC will acquire all of the outstanding assets of CEOC, including outstanding claims CEOC continues to have against CEC (or CEC’s non-CEOC subsidiaries). Such claims against CEC that are acquired in the CEOC Merger will therefore be extinguished by virtue of the CEOC Merger and will no longer remain outstanding thereafter.

Effective Date Entity Dissolutions

 

29. After the CEOC Merger, the following entities will dissolve by merging with and into Bally’s Midwest Casino, Inc., with Bally’s Midwest Casino, Inc. surviving:

Methodology

We employed the following methodology for determining the separation into PropCo and OpCo.

 

1. We used the following accepted tax law to determine which assets not included in items one and two constitute real property.

 

  The seminal tax case in determining whether an asset is inherently permanent is Whiteco Industries, Inc. v. Commissioner, 65 T.C. 664 (1975). In Whiteco, The Tax Court put together a series of questions designed to ascertain whether a particular asset qualifies as tangible personal property rather than real property. The questions are relevant to the the Propco/Opco split question.

 

    Is the property capable of being moved, and has it in fact been moved?

 

    Is the property designed or constructed to remain permanently in place?

 

    Are there circumstances, which tend to show the expected or intended lengths of affixation, i.e. are there circumstances, which show that the property may or will have to be removed?

 

    How substantial of a job is the removal of a property and how time-consuming is it?

 

    How much damage will the property sustain upon its removal?

 

    What is the manner of affixation of the property to the land?

 

Exhibit D, Page 1


2. Utilizing the questions from Whiteco above, we evaluated each asset class (i.e. Land, Land Improvements, buildings, etc.) to determine which assets constituted real property and should move to Propco and which constituted tangible personal property and should be retained by Opco. Based on those evaluations we drew the following conclusions (with the noted exceptions):

 

  All land is real property.

 

  Barges are real property.

 

  Buildings and Improvements are real property.

 

    However, we evaluated building improvements with useful lives less than 7 years to determine if they met the characteristics for real property.

 

  FF&E was assumed to be operating property.

 

    However, if the useful life is greater than 7 years we evaluated the asset further to determine if the asset is real property.

 

    If the asset description met the criteria of our additional “key word” search the asset was determined to be real property.

 

  For assets with a useful life greater than seven years we evaluated the characteristics of FF&E to determine if any met the characteristics to qualify as real property and designated the asset accordingly.

 

  A key word search was used to identify shorter–lived assets with Building and Improvement characteristics that are classified under the broader furniture, fixture, and equipment categories. We believe the key word listing is comprehensive and materially representative of the building and improvement assets included in FF&E. The complete key word listing is included on the following page.

 

  We also individually evaluated FF&E assets with an acquisition cost greater than $500,000 to determine if assets were real property or tangible property.

 

3. Each asset category, (i.e. Land, Land Improvements, Buildings & Improvements, Barges, and FF&E) was evaluated using the above criteria. A summary split of assets between Opco and Propco is provided at the conclusion.

Key word Methodology

We performed a key word search (utilizing the table below) of the FF&E assets to identify assets that meet real property criteria. We believe the list of key words is comprehensive although not exhaustive.
