Baluma Holdings received net proceeds from the transaction of approximately $180M after distributions to certain minority investors. Baluma Holdings received a $14.7M deposit in February and the balance of the proceeds on May 16. The Punta del Este property generated $21M in EBITDA in 2016. The property's results have been excluded from Caesars Entertainment's financial statements since the deconsolidation of CEOC in January 2015. Under the terms of Enjoy's 2013 acquisition of a 45% stake in Conrad Punta del Este, Enjoy had the right to acquire the remaining shares in the property between years three and five of the relationship. This sale is the result of Enjoy exercising that right.
