·4 min read

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- MGM Growth Properties Operating Partnership LP (the "Operating Partnership") and MGP Finance Co-Issuer, Inc. (together with the Operating Partnership, the "Issuers"), consolidated subsidiaries of MGM Growth Properties LLC (NYSE: MGP) (the "Company"), have completed the issuance of $750 million in aggregate principal amount of 3.875% senior notes due 2029 (the "notes") at par. The $750 million aggregate principal amount of the notes represented an increase of $250 million from the originally announced offering size of $500 million.

"We are pleased with the execution of this opportunistic upsized capital raise, which allowed us to better position our balance sheet with long-term fixed rate debt at the lowest coupon the Company has achieved in its history," said James Stewart, Chief Executive Officer of MGM Growth Properties. "We believe the success of this transaction is a testament to the continued confidence investors have in the attractiveness of our business model during these challenging times."

The Issuers plan to use the net proceeds of the offering for general corporate purposes, which may include the redemption of up to $700 million of the Operating Partnership units held by MGM Resorts International ("MGM") should MGM elect to exercise certain rights it holds to cause the redemption of such units for cash.

The notes offered have not been and will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to any U.S. persons absent registration under the Securities Act, or pursuant to an applicable exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.
