Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Financial Statements and Exhibits


Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On April 11, 2013, Empire Resorts, Inc. (the "Company") and Kien Huat Realty III Limited ("Kien Huat"), the Company's largest stockholder, entered into a standby purchase agreement (the "Standby Purchase Agreement") in connection with the Company's proposed rights offering (the "Rights Offering") for which the Company submitted a registration statement (the "Registration Statement") to the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on April 2, 2013. Pursuant to the Standby Purchase Agreement, and assuming the Company commences the Rights Offering, Kien Huat agreed to exercise in full its basic subscription rights granted pursuant to the Rights Offering within ten days of its grant. In addition, Kien Huat agreed it would exercise all rights not otherwise exercised by the other holders in the Rights Offering to acquire up to one share less than 20% of the Company's issued and outstanding common stock prior to the commencement of the Rights Offering. The Company will pay Kien Huat a fee of $40,000 for the shares purchased by Kien Huat in excess of its basic subscription rights pursuant to the Standby Purchase Agreement. In addition, the Company will reimburse Kien Huat for its expenses related to the Standby Purchase Agreement in an amount not to exceed $40,000. Consummation of the Standby Purchase Agreement is subject to the usual and customary closing conditions.

The Company plans to distribute to its common stock holders and Series B Preferred Stock holders one non-transferable right to purchase one share of common stock at a subscription price of $1.8901 per share for each five shares of common stock owned, or into which their Series B Preferred Stock is convertible, on April 8, 2013, the record date for the Rights Offering. In addition to being able to purchase their pro rata portion of the shares offered based on their ownership as of April 8, 2013, stockholders may oversubscribe for additional shares of common stock. The Company filed the Registration Statement covering the transaction and the distribution of rights and commencement of the Rights Offering is expected to occur promptly following the effectiveness of that Registration Statement.

This summary description of the Standby Purchase Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the actual Standby Purchase Agreement, which is field as Exhibit 10.1 to this Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
