The company gained leverage in talks with unsecured lenders this month, drawing the last $842 million on the senior credit facility. Without security, banks led by Bank of America Corp. would have no advantage over bondholders divvying up assets in the event of a bankruptcy.

“The banks can accelerate this loan and throw MGM into bankruptcy,” distressed-debt analyst Adam Cohen, founder of Covenant Review, said in an interview. “On the other hand, if you’re a lender maybe that’s not a great result for you because now you’re fighting alongside all the unsecured bondholders..."
