Item 1.01.                                          Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement




On January 3, 2012, pursuant to the terms of its credit agreement providing for $1.6 billion in term loans (the “Propco Credit Agreement”), Station Casinos LLC (the “Registrant” or the “Company”) issued $625 million in aggregate principal amount of Senior Notes due 2018 (the “Notes”) in exchange for $625 million in principal amount of Tranche B-3 loans that were outstanding under the Propco Credit Agreement.  The Notes were issued pursuant to an indenture, dated as of January 3, 2012 (the “Indenture”), among the Company, NP Boulder LLC, NP Palace LLC, NP Red Rock LLC, NP Sunset LLC, NP Development LLC, NP Losee Elkhorn Holdings LLC (each, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Registrant and as a guarantor, the “Guarantors”) and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as Trustee.  Interest will accrue on the Notes at 3.65% per annum from January 3, 2012 until June 16, 2012, and will increase to 3.66% per annum on June 16, 2012, 3.67% per annum on June 16, 2013, 4.87% per annum on June 16, 2014, 7.22% per annum on June 16, 2016, and 9.54% per annum on June 16, 2017.  In addition, the Company is required to pay a duration fee equal to 1.00% of the then aggregate outstanding amount (if any) of the Notes on each of June 17, 2016 and June 19, 2017.  The Company will pay interest semi-annually in arrears on June 15 and December 15 of each year commencing June 15, 2012.


On or after December 31, 2012, the Company may redeem the Notes, in whole or in part, upon not less than 30 nor more than 60 days’ notice, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount thereof plus accrued and unpaid interest, duration fees and Additional Interest (as defined in the Indenture), if any, on the Notes redeemed, to the applicable redemption date.


If the Company experiences certain Change of Control events (as defined in the Indenture), the Company must offer to repurchase the Notes at a purchase price in cash equal to 100% of the aggregate principal amount of Notes plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon, duration fees and Additional Interest, if any, to the date of repurchase.


If the Company sells assets and does not use the proceeds for specified purposes, the Company must offer to repurchase the Notes at a purchase price in cash equal to 100% of the aggregate principal amount of Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon, duration fees and Additional Interest, if any, to the date of repurchase.


The Indenture contains certain covenants limiting, among other things, the Company’s ability and the ability of its subsidiaries (other than its unrestricted subsidiaries) to:


·                  incur additional indebtedness;

·                  create, incur or suffer to exist certain liens;

·                  make distributions on equity interests or repurchase equity interests;

·                  make certain investments;

·                  place restrictions on the ability of subsidiaries to pay dividends or make other distributions to the Company;

·                  sell certain assets or merge with or consolidate into other companies; and

·                  enter into certain types of transactions with the stockholders and affiliates.


These covenants are subject to a number of exceptions and qualifications as set forth in the Indenture.  The Indenture also provides for events of default which, if any of them occurs, would permit or require the principal of and accrued interest on such Notes to be declared due and payable.


The foregoing description is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Indenture, filed as Exhibit 4.1 hereto and incorporated by reference herein.
