  • Gaming and Leisure Properties declares special dividend of $11.85 per share (GLPI) 50.26 : Co announces that its Board of Directors declared a special dividend to shareholders in connection with its previously announced intention to qualify as a real estate investment trust in 2014 following its separation from Penn National Gaming (PENN) on November 1, 2013.

    The special dividend of $1.05 bln, or ~$11.85 per share, will be paid on February 18, 2014 to shareholders of record on January 13, 2014. The amount of cash to be distributed will be $210 mln, or 20% of the total distribution, with the remainder to be paid in shares of GLPI common stock. Although the Company does not anticipate the need for a further dividend to complete the purge of its historical earnings and profits, if the Company later determines that a subsequent dividend is necessary to qualify as a REIT in 2014, it would expect to declare and pay an additional dividend of earnings and profits no later than December 31, 2014.

    Each GLPI shareholder will be permitted to elect to receive the shareholder's entire entitlement in either cash or GLPI common stock, subject to the 20% aggregate cash requirement. Shareholders of record on the Record Date will receive an election form providing for a choice of all cash or all shares, which must be completed and returned by the close of business on February 10, 2014. Shareholders electing cash will receive all cash unless the aggregate amount elected by all shareholders is in excess of the 20% cash requirement, in which case, cash will be allocated on a pro rata basis to such shareholders with the balance in shares.

    Analysis prepared by Equity Analyst J. Moorman, CFA on Apr 29, 2013, when the stock traded at $77.35.
    ä After a 20% rise in 2012, we expect revenues to
    be up 24% in 2013, 9% in 2014 and 7% in 2015,
    reflecting higher tower site rentals, as wireless
    carriers expand network capacity to handle
    strong traffic growth from enhanced services,
    and the acquisition of rights to operate roughly
    7,200 towers from T-Mobile USA, which closed
    in November 2012. Upgrades to networks to
    provide 4G and new carriers providing 4G coverage
    should also provide a boost.
    ä We have a positive view of CCI's operating discipline,
    which we think will continue to benefit
    results as the company adds tenants to its towers.
    We expect the EBITDA margin to contract
    slightly to 58.7% in 2013, from 63.2% in 2012, due
    to the addition of the lower-margin T-Mobile
    USA towers.We then expect margins to expand
    to 60.8% in 2014 and 62.6% in 2015.We believe
    the company will continue to generate
    strong free cash flow, which we expect will
    reach $893 million in 2013, $1,208 million in 2014
    and $1,411 in 2015, up from $664 million in 2012.
    ä We forecast EPS of $0.66 in 2013, $1.52 in 2014
    and $2.15 in 2015, including estimated stock option
    expense of $0.15 in 2013, $0.16 in 2014 and
    $0.16 in 2015.
    Investment Rationale/Risk
    ä We view the shares as highly attractive, given
    our expectations for strong free cash flow
    growth.We believe CCI's portfolio of towers,
    with 74% in the top 100 metropolitan markets,
    positions it well in the wireless market.We see
    new market buildouts, as well as the buildout of
    LTE, as potential catalysts for growth in 2013.
    Additionally, we believe the acquisition of
    NextG Networks will add to revenue growth, as
    will the integration of T-Mobile USA towers.
    ä Risks to our recommendation and target price
    include a slowdown in tower leasing expansion
    with wireless consolidation, delays in the deployment
    of 3G and 4G technologies, higher
    borrowing costs, debt or equity offerings that
    do not retire existing debt, and a depreciating
    Australian dollar.
    ä Our 12-month target price of $95 is mainly
    based on 21X the average of our 2014 and 2015
    free cash flow per share estimates, in line with
    the average peer multiple.We think CCI's EBITDA
    margins will expand and its cash flow per
    share will rise over the next few years. Our target
    price also represents an enterprise value of
    18.3X the average of our 2014 and 2015 EBITDA
    projections, in line with the industry average.
    Qualitative Risk Assessment
    Our risk assessment reflects CCI's high debt level,
    which we believe is manageable. This is offset by
    our view of CCI's stable leased tower revenues
    and long-term contracts with its largest
