Attention: Vice PresidentInvestor Relations
Except as provided above, no other information, including information on our internet site (http://www.wynnresorts.com), is incorporated by reference in this prospectus.
This prospectus, including the documents incorporated by reference herein, contains statements that are forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act) and Section 21E of the Exchange Act, including, but not limited to, statements relating to our business strategy and development activities, including our opportunity in Macau, as well as other capital spending, financing sources, the effects of regulation (including gaming and tax regulations), expectations concerning future operations, margins, profitability and competition.
Any statements contained in this prospectus that are not statements of historical fact may be deemed to be forward-looking statements. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, in some cases you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as may, will, should, would, could, believe, expect, anticipate, estimate, intend, plan, continue or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology. Such forward-looking information involves important risks and uncertainties that could significantly affect anticipated results in the future and, accordingly, such results may differ from those expressed in any forward-looking statements made by us. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, those relating to:
|||competition in the casino/hotel and resorts industry;|
|||completion of our Wynn Las Vegas casino resort on time and within budget;|
|||doing business in foreign locations such as Macau (including the risks associated with Macaus developing gaming regulatory framework);|
|||new development and construction activities of competitors;|
|||our dependence on Stephen A. Wynn and existing management;|
|||leverage and debt service (including sensitivity to fluctuations in interest rates);|
|||levels of travel, leisure and casino spending;|
|||general domestic or international economic conditions;|
|||pending or future legal proceedings;|
|||changes in federal or state tax laws or the administration of such laws;|

|||applications for licenses and approvals under applicable jurisdictional laws and regulations (including gaming laws and regulations);|
|||the impact that an outbreak of an infectious diseases, such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), may have on the travel and leisure industry; and|
|||the consequences of the war in Iraq and other military conflicts in the Middle East and any future security alerts and/or terrorist attacks such as the attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001.|
Further information on potential factors that could affect our financial condition, results of operations and business are included in our filings with the SEC.
You should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements, which are based only on information currently available to us. We undertake no obligation to publicly release any revisions to such forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this prospectus.
You should carefully consider the risks described below and the risks incorporated by reference from our Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed on March 15, 2004, before making an investment decision. The risks and uncertainties described below and incorporated by reference herein are not the only ones facing our company. Additional risks and uncertainties not presently known to us or that we currently deem immaterial may also impair our business operations. If any of these risks actually occurs, our business, financial condition and results of operations could be materially adversely affected. In that case, the value of our common stock could decline substantially.
Risk Relating to the Offering
The price of our common stock may fluctuate significantly, which may make it difficult for you to resell the common stock issuable when you want or at prices you find attractive.
The price of shares of our common stock on the Nasdaq National Market constantly changes. We expect that the market price of our common stock will continue to fluctuate. Holders of our common stock will be subject to the risk of volatility and depressed prices of our common stock.
Our stock price can fluctuate as a result of a variety of factors, many of which are beyond our control. These factors include:
|||announcements by us or our competitors of significant contracts, mergers, acquisitions, joint marketing relationships, joint ventures or capital commitments;|
|||developments in construction of Wynn Las Vegas or Wynn Macau;|
|||developments generally affecting the casino/hotel and resorts industry;|
|||announcements by third parties of significant claims or proceedings against us;|
|||changes in government regulations and governmental approval of gaming activities;|
|||changes in expectations as to our future financial performance, including financial estimates by securities analysts and investors;|
|||future sales of our equity or equity-linked securities; and|
|||general domestic and international economic conditions.|
General market fluctuations, industry factors and general economic and geopolitical conditions and events, such as economic slowdowns or recessions, consumer confidence in the economy, recent terrorist attacks and ongoing military conflicts, also could cause our stock price to decrease.
In addition, the stock market in general has experienced extreme volatility that has often been unrelated to the operating performance of a particular company. These broad market fluctuations also may adversely affect the market price of our common stock.
The substantial number of shares of common stock that will be eligible for sale in the near future could cause the market price of our common stock to decline.
A substantial number of shares of our common stock were issued by us in private transactions not involving a public offering and are therefore treated as restricted securities for purposes of Rule 144 under the Securities Act. On June 20, 2003, we entered into a strategic business alliance with SBM, and in connection therewith, we sold 3,000,000 shares of our common stock to SBM for $45 million in a privately negotiated, all cash transaction. In return, SBM has agreed, subject to certain exceptions, to refrain from transferring its shares prior to April 1,
2005, and will be entitled to certain registration rights thereafter. As of June 30, 2004, we had outstanding 43,000,000 such restricted shares of common stock, 40,000,000 of which are held by certain of our affiliates and 3,000,000 of which are held by SBM. If these affiliated holders comply with the applicable holding periods, volume limits and other conditions prescribed in Rule 144 under the Securities Act, these unregistered shares of common stock may be freely tradable. In addition, as of June 30, 2004, there were 2,050,000 shares of common stock reserved and subject to issuance upon exercise of outstanding options, warrants or other convertible rights. Lastly, we have granted our Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Stephen A. Wynn, demand and piggyback registration rights with respect to any shares of our common stock he purchases from Aruze USA.
No predictions can be made as to the effect, if any, that the issuance and availability for future market sales of shares of our common stock will have on the market price of our common stock prevailing from time to time. Sales of substantial amounts of our common stock (including shares issued upon the conversion of convertible securities), or the perception that such sales could occur, could materially adversely affect the prevailing market price for our common stock and could impair our future ability to raise capital through an offering of equity or equity-linked securities.
We will not receive any of the proceeds upon resale of the common stock by the selling stockholders.
The selling stockholders may from time to time offer and sell pursuant to this prospectus any or all of the shares of common stock listed below. When we refer to the selling stockholders in this prospectus, we mean those persons listed in the table below, as well as the pledgees, donees, assignees, transferees, successors and others who later hold any of the selling stockholders interests. Because the selling stockholders are not obligated to sell the shares of common stock, we cannot estimate how many shares of common stock the selling stockholders will hold upon consummation of any such sales.
The table below sets forth the name of each selling stockholder and number of shares of common stock that each selling stockholder may offer pursuant to this prospectus. Information concerning the selling stockholders may change from time to time and any changed information will be set forth in supplements to this prospectus to the extent required.

This prospectus relates to the offer and sale from time to time by the selling stockholders of up to 1,333,333 shares of our common stock. We will not receive any of the proceeds from the sale by the selling stockholders of the common stock. We will bear all out-of-pocket fees and expenses incurred by us in connection with the registration of the common stock offered hereby. The selling stockholders will bear any and all brokerage fees and commissions, if any.
The selling stockholders may offer and sell the common stock from time to time in one or more transactions at fixed prices, at prevailing market prices at the time of sale, at varying prices determined at the time of sale or at negotiated prices. These prices will be determined by the selling stockholders or by agreement between such holders and brokers or dealers who may receive brokerage fees or commissions in connection with such sale. Such sales may be effected by a variety of methods, including the following:
|||in market transactions;|
|||in privately negotiated transactions;|
|||through the writing of options;|
|||in a block trade in which a broker-dealer will attempt to sell a block of securities as agent but may position and resell a portion of the block as principal to facilitate the transaction;|
|||through broker-dealers, which may act as agents or principals;|
|||directly to one or more purchasers;|
|||through agents; or|
|||in any combination of the above or by any other legally available means.|
In connection with the sales of the common stock or otherwise, the selling stockholders may enter into hedging transactions with broker-dealers, which may in turn engage in short sales of the offered securities, short and deliver the common stock to close out such short positions, or loan or pledge the common stock to broker-dealers that in turn may sell such securities.
If a material arrangement with any broker, dealer or other agent is entered into for the sale of the common stock through a secondary distribution or a purchase by a broker or dealer, or if other material changes are made in the plan of distribution of the common stock, a prospectus supplement will be filed, if necessary, under the Securities Act disclosing the material terms and conditions of such arrangement.
To our knowledge, there are currently no plans, arrangements or understandings between the selling stockholders and any broker-dealer or agent regarding the sale of the common stock by the selling stockholders. The selling stockholders may decide not to sell all or a portion of the common stock offered pursuant to this prospectus. In addition, the selling stockholders may transfer, devise or give the common stock by other means not described in this prospectus. Any common stock covered by this prospectus that qualifies for sale pursuant to Rule 144 of the Securities Act may be sold under Rule 144 rather than pursuant to this prospectus.
The selling stockholders and any broker-dealers or agents participating in the distribution of the common stock may be deemed to be underwriters within the meaning of the Securities Act, and any profit on the sale of the common stock by the selling stockholders and any commissions received by any such broker-dealers or agents may be deemed to be underwriting commissions under the Securities Act. If the selling stockholders were deemed to be underwriters, the selling stockholders may be subject to statutory liabilities including, but not limited to, those of Sections 11, 12 and 17 of the Securities Act and Rule 10b-5 under the Exchange Act.
The selling stockholders and any other person participating in the distribution will be subject to the applicable provisions of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations under the Exchange Act, including, without limitation, Regulation M, which may limit the timing of purchases and sales of any of the common stock by the selling stockholders and any other relevant person. Furthermore, Regulation M may restrict the ability of any person engaged in the distribution of the common stock to engage in market-making activities with respect to the particular common stock being distributed. All of the above may affect the marketability of the common stock and the ability of any person or entity to engage in market-making activities with respect to the common stock.
Certain legal matters regarding the common stock offered hereby will be passed upon for us by Schreck Brignone, Las Vegas, Nevada.
