Notes to Consolidated --------------------- Financial Statements -------------------- NOTE 1. ORGANIZATION AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION ---------------------------------------------- MGM Grand, Inc. (the "Company") is a Delaware corporation incorporated on January 29, 1986. As of December 31, 1998, approximately 73% of the outstanding shares of the Company's common stock were owned by Kirk Kerkorian and Tracinda Corporation ("Tracinda"), a Nevada corporation wholly owned by Kirk Kerkorian. Through its wholly-owned subsidiary, MGM Grand Hotel, Inc., the Company owns and operates the MGM Grand Hotel/Casino ("MGM Grand Las Vegas"), a hotel/casino and entertainment complex in Las Vegas, Nevada. MGM Grand Hotel Finance Corp. ("MGM Finance"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, was formed to issue First Mortgage Notes ("FMN") to the public, to incur bank debt and to lend the aggregate proceeds thereof to MGM Grand Hotel, Inc. to finance the construction and opening of MGM Grand Las Vegas. See Note 9 regarding defeasance of the FMN. Through its wholly-owned subsidiary, MGM Grand Australia Pty Ltd., the Company owns and operates the MGM Grand Hotel/Casino in Darwin, Australia ("MGM Grand Australia"), which is located on 18 acres of beachfront property on the north central coast of Australia. The Company acquired MGM Grand Australia on September 7, 1995. The Company and Primadonna Resorts, Inc. ("Primadonna") each owned 50% of New York-New York Hotel and Casino, LLC ("NYNY LLC"), which completed development of the $460 million themed destination resort called New York-New York Hotel and Casino ("NYNY") in Las Vegas, Nevada in December 1996. NYNY commenced operations on January 3, 1997, and is located on approximately 20 acres at the northwest corner of Tropicana Avenue and Las Vegas Boulevard, across from MGM Grand Las Vegas. Through its wholly-owned subsidiary, MGM Grand South Africa, Inc., the Company manages three temporary casinos throughout various provinces of the Republic of South Africa. The casino in Nelspruit began operations on October 15, 1997, the casino in Witbank began operations on March 10, 1998 and the casino in Johannesburg began operations on September 28, 1998. The Company receives development and management fees from its partner, Tsogo Sun Gaming & Entertainment, which is responsible for providing all project costs. Through its wholly-owned subsidiary, MGM Grand Detroit, Inc., the Company and its local partners in Detroit, Michigan, formed MGM Grand Detroit, LLC to develop a hotel/casino and entertainment complex at an approximate cost of $800 million. On November 20, 1997, MGM Grand Detroit, LLC was chosen as a finalist for a development agreement to construct, own and operate one of Detroit's three new casinos. On April 9, 1998, the Detroit City Council approved MGM Grand Detroit LLC's development agreement with the City of Detroit. Construction of the project is subject to the receipt of various governmental approvals. The plans for the permanent facility call for an 800-room hotel, a 100,000 square- foot casino, signature restaurants and retail outlets, a showroom and other entertainment venues. On July 22, 1998, the Michigan Gaming Control Board adopted a resolution which allows the issuance of casino licenses to conduct gaming operations in temporary facilities. Pending receipt of a license, MGM Grand Detroit, LLC anticipates the opening of the temporary gaming facility, which will contain approximately 73,000 square feet of casino space, 2,300 slot machines, 80 table games and signature restaurants and bars, in the third quarter of 1999. Through its wholly-owned subsidiary, MGM Grand Atlantic City, Inc., the Company intends to construct, own and operate a destination resort hotel/casino, entertainment and retail facility in Atlantic City, New Jersey, at an approximate cost of $700 million, on approximately 35 acres of land on the Atlantic City Boardwalk. Construction of the project is subject to the receipt of various governmental approvals. On July 24, 1996, the Company was found suitable for licensing by the New Jersey Casino Control Commission. NOTE 2. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES --------------------------------------- a. Principles of Consolidation-- The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries. Investments in unconsolidated affiliates which are 50% or less owned are accounted for under the equity method. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. b. Management's Use of Estimates-- The consolidated 33
EX-99.(G)(1)6th Page of 21TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 6th
financial statements have been prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles. Those principles require management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. c. Cash and Cash Equivalents-- Cash and cash equivalents consist of investments in bank certificates of deposit and other interest bearing instruments with initial maturities of three months or less. Such investments are carried at cost which approximate market value. d. Accounts Receivable-- Accounts receivable are due within one year and are recorded net of amounts estimated to be uncollectible. e. Inventories -- Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market. Cost is determined by the first-in, first-out method. f. Property and Equipment -- Property and equipment are stated at cost. Maintenance and repairs that neither materially add to the value of the property nor appreciably prolong its life are charged to expense as incurred. Gains or losses on dispositions of property and equipment are included in the determination of income. Depreciation and amortization are provided on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of the assets as follows: Buildings and improvements ..................................... 15 to 40 years Equipment, furniture and fixtures .............................. 3 to 7 years Land improvements .............................................. 10 years Leasehold improvements ......................................... 5 to 20 years g. Excess of Purchase Price over Fair Market Value of Net Assets Acquired--The excess of purchase price over fair market value of net assets acquired is amortized on a straight-line basis over 40 years. h. Other Assets-- The cost of normal hotel operating quantities of china, silverware, glassware and utensils is recorded as an asset and is depreciated. Direct costs related to the debt offering and bank financing are being deferred and amortized over the debt repayment periods. Organizational costs are amortized on a straight-line basis over 60 months. i. Casino Revenues and Promotional Allowances --Casino revenue is the aggregate of gaming wins and losses. The retail value of accommodations, food and beverage, and other services furnished to hotel/casino guests without charge is included in gross revenue and then deducted as promotional allowances. The estimated retail value of these promotional allowances was $66.2 million, $63.7 million and $56.2 million for the years ended December 31, 1998, 1997 and 1996, respectively. The estimated cost of providing such promotional allowances was included in casino expenses as follows: PROMOTIONAL ALLOWANCES [Download Table] (IN THOUSANDS) YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 1998 1997 1996 ------- ------- ------- ROOMS ............................................ $11,304 $ 9,841 $ 9,487 FOOD AND BEVERAGE ................................ 26,826 28,436 23,224 OTHER ............................................ 4,011 2,235 2,175 ------- ------- ------- $42,141 $40,512 $34,886 ======= ======= ======= j. Currency Translation -- The Company accounts for currency translation in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 52, "Foreign Currency Translation." The Australian results of operations and the balance sheet are translated from Australian dollars to US dollars. Certain fixed assets and intangibles are valued at historical exchange rates, while other balance sheet accounts are translated at the exchange rate in effect at each year end. Income accounts are translated at the average rate of exchange prevailing during the year. k. Net Income Per Common Share-- Basic income per share of common stock is computed based on the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted income per share of common stock is computed based on the assumption that options 34
EX-99.(G)(1)7th Page of 21TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 7th
issued to employees are exercised and repurchased at the average price for the periods presented (see Note 13). l. Capitalized Interest -- The Company capitalizes interest costs associated with debt incurred in connection with major construction and development projects. The Company capitalizes interest on amounts expended on the project at the Company's weighted average cost of the borrowed funds (see Note 9), and based upon the weighted average amount of the Company's outstanding borrowings. Capitalization of interest ceases when the project is completed. m. Corporate Expense -- Corporate expense represents unallocated payroll costs, professional fees, and various other expenses not directly related to the Company's hotel/casino operations. In addition, corporate expense includes the costs associated with the Company's evaluation and pursuit of new business opportunities, which are expensed as incurred until development of a specific project has become relatively certain. n. Reclassifications-- The consolidated financial statements for prior years reflect certain reclassifications to conform with the current year presentation, which have no effect on previously reported net income. o. Recently issued Statement of Position - In April 1998, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants issued SOP 98-5, "Reporting on the Costs of Start-up Activities." The new standard requires that all companies expense costs of start-up activities as those costs are incurred. The term "start-up" includes pre-opening, pre-operating and organization activities. Previously, the Company had capitalized these items until the development of the property was substantially complete and ready to open, at which time the cumulative costs were expensed. As of December 31, 1998, the Company capitalized "start-up" costs of $.7 million related to Atlantic City and $11.6 million related to Detroit. The Company will adopt SOP 98-5 in the first quarter of fiscal year 1999. NOTE 3.

Credit is issued in exchange for gaming chips at MGM Grand Las Vegas as permitted by the regulations of the Nevada Gaming Commission and the Nevada State Gaming Control Board. The Company extends credit, following an evaluation of credit worthiness, to certain casino patrons, a substantial portion of whom reside in countries other than the United States. The Company maintains an allowance for doubtful accounts and discounts which is based on management's estimate of the amount expected to be uncollectible considering historical experience and the information management obtains regarding the credit worthiness of the customer. The collectibility of these receivables could be affected by future business or economic trends or other significant events in the countries in which such customers reside. Although management believes the allowance is adequate, it is possible that the estimated amount of cash collections with respect to the casino accounts receivable could change. NOTE 5.

DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS ---------------------------- The Company, along with its local partners in Detroit, Michigan, plans to develop a permanent hotel/casino and entertainment complex at an approximate cost of $800 million. On November 20, 1997, MGM Grand Detroit, LLC was chosen as a finalist for a development agreement to construct, own and operate one of Detroit's three new casinos. On April 9, 1998, the Detroit City Council approved MGM Grand Detroit, LLC's development agreement with the City of Detroit. Construction of the project is subject to the receipt of various governmental approvals. The plans for the permanent facility call for an 800-room hotel, a 100,000 square-foot casino, signature restaurants and retail outlets, a showroom and other entertainment venues. On July 22, 1998, the Michigan Gaming Control Board adopted a resolution which allows the issuance of casino licenses to conduct gaming operations in temporary facilities. During November 1998, MGM Grand Detroit, LLC commenced construction activities on its temporary casino which will consist of approximately 73,000 square feet of casino space, 2,300 slot machines, 80 table games, as well as signature restaurants and bars at an approximate cost of $200 million. Pending the receipt of its license, MGM Grand Detroit, LLC anticipates the opening of the temporary facility in the third quarter of 1999. Through December 31, 1998, approximately $26.3 million was expended and capitalized by the Company for licensing, design and construction costs for the permanent and temporary facilities. The Company plans to develop a hotel/casino and entertainment complex in Atlantic City, New Jersey, at a minimum approximate cost of $700 million, on approximately 35 acres of land on the Atlantic City Boardwalk. Construction of the project is subject to the receipt of various governmental approvals. On July 24, 1996, the Company was found suitable for licensing by the New Jersey Casino Control Commission. Through December 31, 1998, the Company has expended and capitalized approximately $53.1 million relating primarily to land acquisition and pre-construction activities. 36

NOTE 7. INVESTMENTS IN UNCONSOLIDATED AFFILIATES ------------------------------------------------ On December 28, 1994, the Company and Primadonna formed a joint venture to construct, own and operate the New York-New York Hotel and Casino (see Note 1). The hotel/casino opened to the public on January 3, 1997. The Company holds a 50% interest in the joint venture (see Note 20). As of December 31, 1998, the Company has contributed land valued at $41.2 million with a cost basis of $37.6 million on which the property is located and cash totaling $29.5 million. During the years ended December 31, 1998, and December 31, 1997, the Company received distributions of $4.1 million and $15.2 million, respectively from the joint venture to pay taxes on its allocated share of income. The joint venture secured bank financing of $285 million, which was subsequently amended and reduced to $210 million, and term loan financing of $20 million (see Note 9).

On July 3, 1996, the Company deposited $523.2 million (the "Defeasance Deposit") with the Trustee, U.S. Trust of California, to fund the defeasance of FMN in accordance with the terms of the bond indenture. The Defeasance Deposit was made in the form of U.S. Government securities and was used to fund interest payments on the FMN through May 1, 1997, at which date the 11.75% and 12% FMN were called at 101.958% and 105.333% of their outstanding principal, respectively. On October 29, 1996, the liens on the assets of MGM Grand Hotel, Inc. were released and accordingly, the defeasance was finalized. The early extinguishment of 38
EX-99.(G)(1)11th Page of 21TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 11th
the FMN resulted in an extraordinary loss of approximately $30.8 million, net of income tax benefits. On July 1, 1996, the Company secured a $500 million Senior Reducing Revolving Credit Facility with BA Securities (the "Facility"), an affiliate of Bank of America NT&SA. In August 1996, the Facility was increased to $600 million. In July 1997, the Facility was amended, extended and increased to $1.25 billion (the "New Facility"), with provisions to allow an increase of the New Facility to $1.5 billion as well as to allow additional pari passu debt financing up to $500 million. As a result of the New Facility, the Company recognized an extraordinary loss of approximately $4.2 million, net of income tax benefits, due to the write-off of unamortized debt costs from the Facility during 1997. The New Facility contains various restrictive covenants on the Company which include the maintenance of certain financial ratios and limitations on additional debt, dividends, capital expenditures and disposition of assets. The New Facility also restricts certain acquisitions and similar transactions. Interest on the New Facility is based on the bank reference rate or Eurodollar rate and as of December 31, 1998, the Company's borrowing rate was approximately 5.8%. The New Facility matures in December 2002, with the opportunity to extend the maturity for successive one-year periods. During the year ended December 31, 1998, $31 million was drawn down and repaid against the New Facility and no amounts remained outstanding as of December 31, 1998. The Company filed a Shelf Registration Statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission which became effective on August 4, 1997. The Shelf Registration Statement allows the Company to issue up to $600 million of debt and equity securities. On February 2 and February 6, 1998, the Company completed public offerings totaling $500 million of Senior Collateralized Notes in tranches of 7 and 10 years. The 7-year tranche of $300 million carries a coupon of 6.95%, while the 10-year tranche of $200 million carries a coupon of 6.875%. Both tranches are initially secured equally and ratably with the New Facility and security may be removed equally with the New Facility at the Company's option, and upon the occurrence of certain events, including the maintenance of investment grade ratings. These Senior Collateralized Notes are pari passu with the New Facility and contain various restrictive covenants as does the New Facility. The Senior Collateralized Notes and the New Facility are collateralized by substantially all the assets of the Company except for assets of certain unrestricted subsidiaries. Based on the quoted market value of the Senior Collateralized Notes at December 31, 1998, the fair value of the 7-year and 10-year tranches were $280.5 million and $179.9 million, respectively. On September 7, 1995, the Company completed the acquisition of MGM Grand Australia (formerly the Diamond Beach Hotel/Casino) in Darwin, Australia. The acquisition cost was financed by an Australian bank facility which provided a total availability of approximately $64.4 million (AUD $105 million) and includes funding for general corporate purposes. During 1998, the facility was reduced by principal payments totaling $9.7 million (AUD $15.6 million) made in accordance with the terms of the bank facility, and as of December 31, 1998, $44.9 million (AUD $73.2 million) remained outstanding. Interest on the Australian facility is based on the bank bill rate and was approximately 5.3% and 5.8% as of December 31, 1998 and 1997, respectively. The facility matures in December 2002, and the indebtedness has been guaranteed by the Company. MGM Grand Australia has a $12.3 million (AUD $20 million) uncommitted standby line of credit, with a funding period of 91 days for working capital purposes. During the year ended December 31, 1998, no amounts were borrowed under the line of credit and no amounts were outstanding as of December 31, 1998, and 1997, respectively.

On September 15, 1995, NYNY LLC completed its bank financing for up to $225 million (see Note 1), which was increased to $285 million during September 1996. The non-revolving construction line of credit converted to a five-year reducing revolver upon completion of construction and commencement of operations of NYNY on January 3, 1997. On October 8, 1998, the NYNY LLC five-year reducing revolver was amended and reduced to $210 million. The Company and Primadonna (the "Partners") guaranteed completion of the project as a condition to facility availability, and have executed a joint and several unlimited Keep-Well Agreement, which provides that in the event of insufficient cash flow from NYNY to comply with financial covenants, the Partners will make cash infusions which are sufficient to bring NYNY LLC into compliance with the financial covenants. The first draw down occurred on September 30, 1995, and as of December 31, 1998, $178.5 million was outstanding under the facility. During 1998, $66.6 million in principal repayments were made by NYNY LLC. On January 21, 1997, NYNY LLC completed an additional $20 million equipment financing with a financial institution. As of December 31, 1998, $14.4 million remained outstanding related to the equipment financing. As of December 31,1998, the Company was in compliance with all covenant provisions associated with the aforementioned obligations. NOTE 10. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES --------------------------------------- The Company and its subsidiaries lease buildings and equipment under non- cancelable operating lease agreements which expire at various times through the year 2003. The leases generally provide that the Company pay taxes, insurance and maintenance expenses related to leased assets. At December 31, 1998, the Company was obligated under non-cancelable operating leases and capital leases to make future minimum lease payments as follows: [Download Table] (IN THOUSANDS) YEARS ENDING DECEMBER 31, OPERATING CAPITAL LEASES LEASES --------- ---------- 1999................................................ $ 643 $ 5,372 2000................................................ 519 3,047 2001................................................ 429 - 2002................................................ 429 - 2003................................................ 429 - THEREAFTER - - --------- ---------- TOTAL MINIMUM LEASE PAYMENT......................... $ 2,449 8,419 ========= AMOUNT REPRESENTING INTEREST........................................

NOTE 11. STOCKHOLDERS' EQUITY ------------------------------ On July 2, 1996, the Company completed a public offering (the "Offering") of 8.6 million shares of commom stock (including an underwriter's over allotment option to purchase 1.1 million shares of commom stock). Based on an Offering price of $39.50 per share and associated costs incurred, the net proceeds were approximately $327 million. The net proceeds from the Offering were used for the defeasance of the MGM Grand Hotel Finance Corp. FMN (see Note 9). On May 7, 1996, the Company made a commitment to grant 15 shares of Company common stock to each of its employees in exchange for continued active employment through the one-year anniversary date of the commitment. As a result of the stock grant commitment, deferred compensation was charged to stockholders' equity and amortized monthly to compensation expense over the one- year commitment period. On May 7, 1997, 99,045 shares were issued to employees as a result of the commitment. Over the life of the commitment, approximately $4 million was amortized to expense, of which $1.2 million and $2.8 million of such expense were recognized during the years ended December 31, 1997 and 1996, respectively. On May 24, 1995, and as amended, the Company entered into an agreement with Don King Productions, Inc. ("DKP") to present six of Mike Tyson's fights. Pursuant to the agreement, the Company made a non-interest bearing working capital advance of $15 million to DKP, sold to DKP 618,557 treasury shares of the Company's Common Stock (the "Shares") for $15 million in exchange for a non- interest bearing promissory note which was repaid, and provided a guaranteed future share price of $48.50. The original agreement was amended by a Trust Agreement dated October 23, 1996, in which the Shares were placed in the name of, and held by, an independent trustee, pending disposition at the direction of the Company. The Company and DKP determined to terminate the agreement, and on September 25, 1997, after solicitation of competitive bids, the Shares held by the Trustee were sold to Tracinda at the price of $44.50 per share for an aggregate consideration of $27.5 million. The Company was repaid the $15 million working capital advance and the remaining consideration in the amount of $12.5 million was paid to DKP. As a result of this transaction, the Company reversed approximately $5.9 million of previously expensed stock price guarantee amortization during 1997. On June 23, 1998, the Company announced a $35.00 per share cash tender offer for up to 6 million shares of Company commom stock as part of a 12 million share repurchase program. The offer commenced on July 2, 1998 and expired on July 31, 1998. Based upon final results, 10.8 million shares of the Company's common stock were tendered, and accordingly, the shares were prorated. The total acquisition cost of the tendered shares was approximately $210.6 million. The company anticipates that, depending on market conditions, the remaining 6 million shares in the repurchase program may be acquired in the open market, in private transactions, through a tender offer, offers otherwise. NOTE 12. COMPREHENSIVE INCOME ------------------------------ Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 130 ("SFAS 130"), Reporting Comprehensive Income, requires that the Company disclose comprehensive income and its components. The objective of SFAS 130 is to report a measure of all changes in equity of a company that result from transactions and other economic events of the period other than transactions with stockholders. Comprehensive income is the total of net income and all other non-stockholder changes in equity ("Other Comprehensive Income"). The Company has recorded currency translation adjustments as Other Comprehensive Income in the accompanying financial statements. Comprehensive income is calculated as follows: (IN THOUSANDS) YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 1998 1997 --------- --------- NET INCOME ................................. $ 68,948 $ 111,018 CURRENCY TRANSLATION ADJUSTMENT ............ 2,688 14,422 --------- --------- COMPREHENSIVE INCOME ....................... $ 71,636 $ 125,440 ========= ========= 41

NOTE 13. EARNINGS PER SHARE ---------------------------- The Company accounts for Earnings per Share according to Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 128, "Earnings per Share" ("SFAS 128"). SFAS 128 presents two EPS calculations: (i) basic earnings per common stock which is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the periods presented, and (ii) diluted earnings per common share which is determined on the assumption that options issued pursuant to the Company's stock option plans (see Note 14) are exercised and repurchased at the average price for the periods presented.

NOTE 14. STOCK OPTION PLANS --------------------------- The Company has adopted nonqualified stock option plans and incentive stock plans which provide for the granting of stock options pursuant to the applicable provisions of the Internal Revenue Code and regulations. The aggregate options available under the plans are 6.5 million shares. The Company had granted options of approximately 5.6 million shares through December 31, 1998. The plans are administered by the Compensation and Stock Option Committee of the Board of Directors. Salaried officers and other key employees of the Company and its subsidiaries are eligible to receive options. The exercise price in each instance is 100% of the fair market value of the Company's common stock on the date of grant. The options have ten-year terms and are exercisable in four and five annual installments. On March 26, 1996, the Compensation and Stock Option Committee of the Board of Directors determined to adjust the vesting provision of the Company's Non-Qualified Stock Option Plan and Incentive Stock Option Plan to provide for the vesting of future stock option grants under the plans at 20% on each of the first four anniversary dates of the grant, with full vesting on the fifth anniversary date of the grant. The Compensation and Stock Option Committee also determined that pro-rata vesting at times other than successive anniversary dates of the date of the grant are no longer applicable. Stock option holders with grants dated prior to March 26, 1996 were given the opportunity to accept or decline the new vesting provisions with regard to their existing grants. On June 22, 1998, the Compensation and Stock Option Committee of the Board of Directors approved an offer to employees to reprice their out-of-the- money options (covering an aggregate of 1,820,950 shares). The original options had exercise prices ranging from $33.1875 to $44.125, and the new options have an exercise price of $26.625. For holders who accepted the new price, certain conditions were adopted including (1) commencement of a new holding period for vesting of options (whether or not the initial options had vested) and (2) a one-year extension of employee employment contracts, at the Company's option, where applicable. The repricing offer was not made to the Company's outside directors. Such repricing did not affect options held by the Chairman or the President of the Company. Had the Company accounted for these plans under Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 123, "Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation" ("SFAS 123"), the Company's net income and earnings per share would have been reduced to the following pro forma amounts: 42

The fair value of each option grant is estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model with the following weighted-average assumptions used for grants in 1998, 1997 and 1996, respectively; risk-free interest rates 6%, 6%, and 6.1%, respectively; no expected dividend yields for the years presented; expected lives of 6 years for all years; and expected volatility of 36% for 1998, 38% for 1997, and 39% for 1996. The Company has agreements with 138 executives which provide that, upon a change of control, any unvested stock options covered by such agreements become exercisable. The total number of stock options subject to such agreements is 4.7 million, of which 4.6 million options become immediately exercisable, and the remaining .1 million options become exercisable if employment status is diminished within twelve months following a change in control. NOTE 15. EMPLOYEE PENSION AND SAVINGS PLANS ------------------------------------------- Participation in the MGM Grand Hotel, Inc. 401(k) employee savings plan is available for all full time employees. The savings plan allows participants to defer, on a pre-tax basis, a portion of their salary and accumulate tax deferred earnings as a retirement fund. MGM Grand Hotel, Inc. matches 25% of employee contributions up to a maximum of 1% of participating employee's eligible gross wages. Additionally, MGM Grand Hotel, Inc. makes contributions to the employees' savings plan based on length of service, which vest over a five-year period. For the periods ended December 31, 1998, 1997 and 1996, MGM Grand Hotel, Inc. contributions under this arrangement were $4.1 million, $3.4 million, and $3.1 million, respectively. Effective November 1994, the Company and MGM Grand Hotel, Inc. adopted a Nonqualified Deferred Retirement Plan for certain key employees not a part of a collective bargaining unit. The Nonqualified Deferred Retirement Plan allows participants to defer, on a pre-tax basis, a portion of their salary and accumulate tax deferred earnings, plus interest, as a retirement fund. These deferrals are in addition to those allowed under the MGM Grand Hotel, Inc. 401(k) savings plan. All deferred amounts vest immediately. There are no employer matching contributions made under this plan. The full amount vested in a participant's account will be distributed to a participant following termination of employment, normal retirement or in the event of disability or death. Effective with the September 1995 acquisition of MGM Grand Australia (see Note 1), an Australian employee retirement fund was acquired. The fund is subject to the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act of 1993, imposing a legal obligation on MGM Grand Australia to contribute to all employees. MGM Grand Australia maintains two categories for the plan, depending on employment status: category (A) for executive employees and category (B) for staff. Death and Disablement benefits are provided for all members; however, category (A) members receive increased coverages under both benefits. MGM Grand Australia contributes 6% of salary to satisfy the Superannuation Guarantee Legislation, and allows participants to defer, on a pre-tax basis, a portion of their salary and accumulate tax deferred earnings as a retirement fund. The full amount vested in members' retirement accounts is payable to the member following termination of employment, under certain circumstances or normal retirement. During 1998, MGM Grand Australia contributed under these arrangements $269,000 and $547,000 for the executive employees and staff, respectively. During 1997, MGM Grand Australia contributed under these arrangements $154,000 and $458,000 for the executive employees and staff, respectively. During 1996, MGM Grand Australia contributed under these arrangements $196,000 and $617,000 for the executive employees and staff, respectively. 44

NOTE 16. MASTER PLAN ASSET DISPOSITION -------------------------------------- During 1997, the Company enhanced and increased the Master Plan to approximately $570 million, and wrote off assets with a net book value of $28.6 million (pre- tax) which included the original swimming pool facility, to be replaced by the Mansion at the MGM Grand consisting of 29 exclusive suites and villas, and certain theme park assets. During September 1996, the Company determined to write off various assets with a net book value of $49.4 million (pre-tax) as a result of the MGM Grand Las Vegas $250 million Master Plan property construction enhancements associated with the transformation of the facility into "The City of Entertainment." The affected areas included certain assets related to the theme park which totaled approximately $39.6 million to make way for the newly completed Conference Center and pool and spa complex; approximately $8.6 million related to the removal of the lion entrance and Emerald City which has been replaced with a new mezzanine entry, a Rainforest Cafe, Studio 54 nightclub and a remodeled Entertainment casino among other attractions; and approximately $1.2 million representing certain food court and midway/arcade areas which have been transformed into the Studio Walk, a replica of a sound stage featuring Hollywood landmarks. NOTE 17. INCOME TAXES --------------------- The Company accounts for Income Taxes according to Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 109, "Accounting for Income Taxes" ("SFAS 109"). SFAS 109 requires the recognition of deferred tax assets, net of applicable reserves, related to net operating loss carryforwards and certain temporary differences. The standard requires recognition of a future tax benefit to the extent that realization of such benefit is more likely than not. Otherwise, a valuation allowance is applied. At December 31, 1998, the Company believes that it is more likely than not that its deferred tax assets are fully realizable because of the future reversal of existing taxable temporary differences and future projected taxable income. Accordingly, there is no valuation allowance at December 31, 1998. The provision for income taxes and income from continuing operations before extraordinary item for the years ended December 31, 1998, 1997 and 1996 is as follows: (IN THOUSANDS) YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 1998 1997 1996 ---------- ----------- ---------- CURRENT - FEDERAL.................. $ 24,791 $ 14,207 $ 31,014 DEFERRED - FEDERAL................. 15,789 50,838 (6,380) ---------- ----------- ---------- PROVISION FOR INCOME TAXES..... $ 40,580 $ 65,045 $ 24,634 ========== =========== ========== Reconciliation of the Federal income tax rate and the Company's effective tax rate is as follows: YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 1998 1997 1996 ---- ---- ---- FEDERAL INCOME TAX RATE ........... 35.0% 35.0% 35.0% PERMANENT AND OTHER ITEMS.......... 2.0 1.1 6.2 CHANGES IN VALUATION ALLOWANCE..... - - (16.4) ---- ---- ---- EFFECTIVE TAX RATE................. 37.0% 36.1% 24.8% ==== ==== ==== 45

NOTE 18. RELATED-PARTY TRANSACTIONS ----------------------------------- In conjunction with the Company's 50% interest in the MGM Grand-Bally's Monorail, LLC, the Company, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, MGM Grand Hotel, Inc., contributed approximately $2 million, $1.5 million, and $1.3 million to the joint venture as part of its operating contribution during 1998, 1997 and 1996, respectively. The Company, through its wholly-owned subsidiary MGM Grand Hotel, Inc., has entered into an agreement to lease space in NYNY to operate a race book and sports pool. The terms of the lease are for ten years from the commencement date of January 3, 1997, with an option for an additional term of ten years. MGM Grand Hotel, Inc. is obligated to pay to NYNY the greater of a minimum annual rent of $.2 million or percentage rent based upon gross revenue, as defined by the Nevada Gaming Authorities. The percentage rent is based on a graduated scale of gross revenue at percentages ranging from 12 to 15%. During 1998 and 1997, approximately $.4 million and $.5 million, respectively, were paid under this agreement. Additionally, MGM Grand Hotel, Inc. leased office facilities to NYNY during 1996 for which it received rental payments of approximately $.1 million, and provided various other hotel goods and services for which NYNY paid approximately $.1 million and $.2 million during 1998 and 1997, respectively. On September 4, 1996, the Company also entered into an agreement with NYNY to provide exclusive floral services through its wholly-owned subsidiary, MGM Grand Merchandising, Inc., at rates generally comparable to those offered by third parties. Payments were made by NYNY totaling $.1 million under the floral service contract for each of 1998 and 1997. The Company and NYNY have entered into various other transactions and 46

arrangements which, individually and in the aggregate, are not material. For the years ended December 31, 1998, and 1997, the Company and its subsidiaries rented aircraft from Tracinda for various business purposes. The aggregate amount of rental payments were $.3 million and $.5 million, respectively, and the rent payments were at rates which management believes are generally below those offered by third parties. The Company and Tracinda have entered into various other transactions and arrangements which, individually and in the aggregate, are not material. During 1998, the Company made no additional contributions to NYNY LLC, compared with $7 million during 1997. The Company received approximately $4.1 million and $15.2 million in distributions from NYNY LLC during 1998 and 1997, respectively, to pay taxes on its allocated share of income. In August 1998, Tracinda agreed to sell its building and land (approximately .56 acre located in Las Vegas, Nevada) to the Company's subsidiary, MGM Grand Hotel, Inc., for $1.8 million. The Company, based on appraisals it received, believes that this purchase was on terms comparable to what it could have obtained for the land and building on an arms-length basis in an equivalent transaction with a third party. Pursuant to an agreement dated December 23, 1996, between MGM Grand Hotel, Inc. and MGM Home Entertainment, Inc. ("MGM-HE"), a California-based motion picture studio in which Tracinda has an approximate 89.6% ownership interest, MGM Grand Hotel, Inc. can utilize key art and still photographs from certain Metro Goldwyn Mayer, Inc. and United Artists Corporation motion pictures for the period commencing on December 27, 1996 and ending on July 1, 1997, which was subsequently extended to December 31, 1997. In exchange, MGM Grand Hotel, Inc. agreed to promote MGM-HE motion picture video cassettes for availability in one or more retail venues. During 1998 and 1997, MGM Grand Hotel, Inc. purchased video cassettes and other MGM-HE merchandise of approximately $.1 million and $.3 million, respectively, at rates which management believes are generally comparable to those offered to third parties. In addition, MGM Grand Hotel, Inc. provided various goods and services during 1998 to MGM-HE which, individually and in the aggregate, are not material. Pursuant to a License Agreement between a predecessor in interest to the Company and Metro Goldwyn Mayer Film Co. dated February 29, 1980, the Company has an exclusive royalty-free license in perpetuity to use certain trademarks, trade names and logos in and in connection with the Company's hotel/gaming business and other businesses, excluding the film entertainment business. During the three-year periods ended December 31, 1998, 1997 and 1996, the Company and MGM-HE have entered into various other transactions and arrangements which, individually and in the aggregate, are not material.

SUBSEQUENT EVENTS (UNAUDITED) -------------------------------------- During December 1998, the Company and Primadonna entered into a definitive merger agreement whereby MGM Grand, Inc. would acquire Primadonna in an all stock transaction plus the assumption of debt. The terms of the merger provided for Primadonna's stockholders to receive 0.33 shares of the Company's common stock for each share of Primadonna stock held, or a total of approximately 9.5 million shares of MGM Grand, Inc. common stock. On March 1, 1999, the merger with Primadonna was completed making Primadonna a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. Primadonna owns and operates three hotel/casino resorts on both sides of Interstate 15 at the California/Nevada border in Primm, Nevada (Whiskey Pete's, Buffalo Bill's and the Primm Valley Resort), a 50% interest in NYNY LLC (which now becomes 100% owned by the Company) and two championship golf courses located four miles south of Primm in California. The Primm, Nevada hotel/casinos are located on approximately 143 acres of leased land. Primadonna owns approximately 16 acres of land in Nevada immediately north of Buffalo Bill's and approximately 573 acres of land in California where the golf courses are located. Approximately 125 of these acres are available for future development. As of March 1, 1999, the Company assumed approximately $315 million of long term debt related to the Primadonna acquisition, which includes Primadonna's 50% share of NYNY LLC's long-term debt. On February 24, 1999, the Company, along with its Detroit partners, received commitments from a consortium of banks for a new five-year $230 million credit facility. Approximately two-thirds of the commitments are from Michigan- based banks, mostly from the greater metropolitan Detroit area. The facility may be increased to $250 million at the Company's discretion. Proceeds from the new facility will be used to finance the development and construction of the temporary and permanent casino complexes and for general working capital. The facility will be secured by substantially all of the assets of MGM Grand Detroit, LLC's temporary facility and will be guaranteed by the Company. 48
