Caesars expects to grant the underwriter of the offering an option to purchase up to 1.5 million additional shares of its common stock. Caesars and its financial sponsors, affiliates of TPG Capital LP and Apollo Global Management, LLC, have agreed to a lock-up for a period of 60 days after the date of the prospectus supplement for the offering.

And, Nu Skin Enterprises ( NUS ), steady at $97.25 in pre-market, says it has received FDA clearance to market a facial spa device for over-the-counter cosmetic use. The company's 510(k) application was filed approximately one year ago. The company estimates that the facial spa will become available for sale some time during the first half of 2014.
