Fitch Ratings has assigned a final rating of ‘A-’ to the loan facilities and notes of Resorts World Las Vegas LLC, the company building a $4 billion integrated resort on the Las Vegas Strip.

The notes and loans include a senior secured $1.2 billion revolver and $400 million term-loan facilities due 2024 as well as senior unsecured $1 billion 4.625% notes due 2029, issued by RWLV and its unit RWLV Capital Inc.

The new integrated resort is scheduled to open its first phase in 2020. It will include three hotels, multiple restaurants featuring a variety of authentic, regional Chinese cuisines; over 100,000 square feet of innovative gaming space; numerous retail offerings; and a top-tier nightlife venue.
