MGM CHINA HOLDINGS LIMITED

(incorporated in the Cayman Islands with limited liability)

(Stock Code: 2282) INSIDE INFORMATION DIVIDEND POLICY
This is an announcement made pursuant to the Inside Information Provisions under Part XIVA of the Securities and Futures Ordinance (Cap. 571) and Rule 13.09 of the Rules Governing the Listing of Securities on the Stock Exchange.
The Board of Directors (the "Board") of MGM China Holdings Limited (the "Company") is pleased to announce that, on 28 February 2013, the Board approved the following dividend policy:
The Company intends to pursue a dividend policy pursuant to which it will make semi-annual distributions in an aggregate amount per year not to exceed 35% of the anticipated consolidated annual profits of the Company, taking into consideration the criteria described below and the directors' fiduciary duties. The Company may also declare special distributions from time to time in addition to the semi-annual distributions.
It is anticipated that these distributions will be declared semi-annually following the announcement of the half-year results and following the announcement of the full year results. Dividends will be declared and paid in Hong Kong dollars.
The Company will evaluate its distribution policy and distributions made in any particular year in light of its financial position, the prevailing economic climate and expectations about the future macroeconomic environment and business performance. The determination to make distributions will be made at the discretion of the Board and will be based upon the Company's operations and earnings, development pipeline, cash flow, financial condition, capital and other reserve requirements and surplus, general financial conditions, contractual restrictions and any other conditions or factors which the Board deems relevant and having regard to the directors' fiduciary duties. The payment of distributions may also be limited by legal restrictions and by the Company's financing agreements (including any financing agreements that the Company may enter into in the future).

The Company's ability to make distributions is also subject to the requirements of Cayman Islands law and the Company's Memorandum and Articles of Association. Other limitations on the Company's ability to declare and pay dividends include the fact that, as a holding company, the Company is dependent upon the receipt of cash contributions from MGM Grand Paradise, S.A. (one of the subsidiaries of the Company) and its other subsidiaries to fund any dividend payments that the Company makes. As substantially all of the Company's operations are conducted through MGM Grand Paradise, S.A. and the Company's other operating subsidiaries, the ability of these subsidiaries to make dividend and other payments to the Company will be restricted by their constitutional documents and to the laws of and regulations of the Macau SAR or other relevant laws and regulations to which those subsidiaries are subject.
