Wynn Resorts Ltd. of Las Vegas today said Chairman and Chief Executive Steve Wynn and his wife Elaine Wynn sold 2 million shares of Wynn Resorts stock Friday in anticipation of the completion of their divorce proceedings.

Elaine Wynn continues to serve the company as a member of the board of directors.

Divorce papers for the couple were filed March 5 in Clark County Family Court.

Wynn Resorts said the Wynns sold the shares at an average price of $57 and that the shares represent less than 10 percent of their holdings.

Wynn Resorts shares traded Friday in the range of $60.26 to $57.17.

"The shares were sold to provide liquidity in anticipation of the change in their marital status," Wynn Resorts said in a statement.
