LAS VEGAS, March 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CityCenter Holdings, LLC ("CityCenter"), a venture between MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM) and Infinity World Development Corp, today announced that the CityCenter Board of Directors approved a $250 million dividend consisting of a $172 million special dividend and a $78 million dividend as part of its annual dividend policy.

"CityCenter continues to demonstrate meaningful operating leverage, led by Aria, which produced record financial results in 2016," said Jim Murren, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of MGM Resorts International and Chairman of CityCenter.
