MGM Grand Announces Final Results Of The Company`s $35 Cash Tender Offer

10th Aug 1998

MGM Grand, Inc. (NYSE: MGG) today
announced the final results of the Company`s tender offer to purchase
6,000,000 shares at $35 per share, which expired Friday, July 31, 1998 at
5:00PM EST.

A total of 10,798,025 shares of the Company`s common stock were tendered,
of which the Company has accepted 6,000,000 shares for payment.  Included in
the total amount of shares tendered were 1,773,885 shares delivered pursuant
to guaranteed delivery procedures.  The Company had received Notices of
Guaranteed Delivery for 6,724,054 shares.  Since more shares were tendered
than the 6,000,000 sought in the tender offer, those shares to be purchased
are subject to proration.  Based on the final count, the proration of shares
to be purchased is 55.3% of the shares tendered, excluding odd lot shares.
Payment for the shares properly tendered and accepted will be made promptly.
As set forth in the Company`s Offer to Purchase dated July 2, 1998, the
tender offer is part of the Company`s program to repurchase an aggregate of
12,000,000 shares of common stock.  The Company anticipates that, depending on
market conditions, the remaining 6,000,000 shares in the repurchase program
may be acquired in the open market, in private transactions, through a tender
offer or offers or otherwise.  The Company may in the future also repurchase
common stock outside of the repurchase program in the open market, in private
transactions, through tender offers or otherwise, although no such purchases
are presently contemplated.

As previously announced, the percentage of common stock held by Kirk
Kerkorian and Tracinda Corporation, which is wholly owned by Mr. Kerkorian,
will increase from approximately 62.5% of the outstanding shares to
approximately 69.7%.  Tracinda has filed a 13D with the Securities and
Exchange Commission stating that, depending on market conditions and subject
to compliance with all applicable laws, it may seek to increase its ownership
of common stock through purchases in the open market, in private transactions,
through tender offers or otherwise.
