TYSONS, Va., May 02, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Park Hotels & Resorts Inc.

If the Tender Offer is not consummated, the Issuers intend to use the net proceeds from the offering, together with Term Loan proceeds, to (i) redeem in full the 2025 Notes and (ii) pay related fees and expenses incurred in connection with the offering and the redemption, with any remaining net proceeds used for general corporate purposes. The Issuers anticipate that consummation of the offering will occur on May 16, 2024, subject to customary closing conditions.
