Comments

Edward Pitoniak, Chief Executive Officer of VICI Properties, said: "Prior to 2020, we were often asked how the Gaming REIT model would fare once it hit its first recession. What VICI faced in 2020 was far beyond a normal recession, but thanks to our tenants’ operating excellence and liquidity, thanks to the intense loyalty gaming customers have to the gaming experience, and thanks to the mission-criticality of our assets, VICI’s business model has proven itself during this on-going COVID-19 crisis. In 2020, we collected one hundred percent of our rent, in cash, on time, again thanks to the superiority of our tenants' business models. And when many REITs were plugging holes in the hull, we completed $4.6 billion of acquisitions and investments, including a creative mortgage structure with our largest tenant, Caesars, and our first investment outside of gaming in the Chelsea Piers New York Facility. Finally, as 2020 unfolded, it became clear that our tenants will increasingly benefit from the technology-driven tailwind that legalized sports betting represents, giving our tenants a powerful new paradigm for developing their next generation of customers, further ensuring the durability of their business models and of our real estate."

Said David Kieske, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, "During a year when many REITs had to work hard to shore up their liquidity, VICI spent 2020 further improving its balance sheet. We accessed the capital markets throughout the year, raising $862 million of gross equity proceeds through a forward sale agreement and under our ATM program, and issuing $2.5 billion of unsecured notes, laddering our debt maturities and lowering our cost of capital while steadily forging our path toward a future investment grade credit rating. In Q3, we announced a dividend increase of 10.9%, one of the largest 2020 dividend increases among large-cap American REITs. Over the last three years, since VICI’s 2018 IPO, our collective activities enabled us to double our annualized revenue and EBITDA and deliver superior total return for shareholders. In fact, over the three-year period ended December 31, 2020, VICI delivered total return of 46.2%, significantly above the 11.2% generated by REITs in the RMZ REIT index."

The Company is entitled to receive $5.5 million from the sale.

On September 30, 2020, the Company and Caesars closed on the previously announced transaction to sell Harrah’s Reno to a third party.

Annual base rent payments under the Regional Master Lease Agreement remained unchanged following completion of the disposition.

On November 18, 2020, the Company and Caesars closed on the previously announced transaction to sell Bally's Atlantic City Hotel & Casino to Bally's Corporation. The total purchase price for Bally's Atlantic City was $25.0 million and the Company received approximately $19.0 million of the proceeds from the sale. The annual rent payments under the Caesars Regional Master Lease Agreement remained unchanged following completion of the disposition.

Other Portfolio Activity

On December 24, 2020, in connection with the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians’ ("EBCI") agreement to acquire the operations of Caesars Southern Indiana from Caesars, the Company agreed to enter into a triple-net lease agreement with EBCI with respect to the real property associated with Caesars Southern Indiana. In addition, as part of the transaction, the parties have agreed to negotiate a right of first refusal for VICI Properties on the real property associated with the development of a new casino resort in Danville, Virginia. Initial total annual rent under the lease with EBCI will be $32.5 million. The lease will have an initial term of 15 years, with four 5-year tenant renewal options. The tenant’s obligations under the lease will be guaranteed by EBCI. Annual base rent payments under the Regional Master Lease with Caesars will be reduced by $32.5 million upon completion of EBCI’s acquisition of the operations of Caesars Southern Indiana and the execution of the lease between the Company and EBCI. The property is expected to retain the Caesars brand name and to continue to be a part of the Caesars Rewards loyalty program in accordance with the terms of a licensing agreement negotiated between EBCI and Caesars.

As of December 31, 2020, the Company had $6.9 billion in total debt.

2021 Guidance

The Company is providing estimated AFFO guidance for the full year 2021. The Company estimates AFFO for the year ending December 31, 2021 will be between $1,010.0 million and $1,035.0 million, or between $1.82 and $1.87 per diluted share. These per share estimates reflect the dilutive impact of the pending 26,900,000 forward sale shares, assuming settlement and the issuance of such shares on June 17, 2021, the maturity date of the agreement, and the dilutive effect prior to the expected settlement date as calculated under the treasury stock method. These estimates do not include the impact on operating results from any pending or possible future acquisitions or dispositions, capital markets activity, or other non-recurring transactions.

The following is a summary of the Company's full-year 2021 guidance:

In determining Adjusted Funds from Operations ("AFFO"), the Company adjusts for certain items that are otherwise included in determining net income attributable to common stockholders, the most comparable GAAP financial measure. For more information, see "Non-GAAP Financial Measures." The Company is unable to provide a reconciliation of its stated AFFO guidance to net income attributable to common stockholders because it is unable to predict with reasonable certainty the amount of the change in non-cash allowance for credit losses under ASU No. 2016-13 - Financial Instruments—Credit Losses (Topic 326) ("ASC 326") for a future period. The non-cash change in allowance for credit losses under ASC 326 with respect to a future period is dependent upon future events that are entirely outside of the Company's control and may not be reliably predicted, including its tenants’ respective financial performance, fluctuations in the trading price of their common stock, credit ratings and outlook (each to the extent applicable), as well as broader macroeconomic performance. Based on past results, the impact of these adjustments could be material, individually or in the aggregate, to the Company's reported GAAP results.

The estimates set forth above reflect management’s view of current and future market conditions, including assumptions with respect to the earnings impact of the events referenced in this release. The estimates set forth above may be subject to fluctuations as a result of several factors and there can be no assurance that the Company’s actual results will not differ materially from the estimates set forth above.

Supplemental Information

In addition to this release, the Company has furnished Supplemental Financial Information, which is available on the Company's website in the "Investors" section, under the menu heading "Financials". This additional information is being provided as a supplement to the information in this release and the Company's other filings with the SEC. The Company has no obligation to update any of the information provided to conform to actual results or changes in the Company’s portfolio, capital structure or future expectations.

Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Our Business

In connection with the COVID-19 pandemic, various state governments and/or regulatory authorities issued directives, mandates, orders or similar actions restricting non-essential business operations, resulting in the temporary closure of substantially all of our tenants’ operations at our properties (as well as our golf course properties). While most of our tenants’ facilities at our properties (and all four of our golf course properties) have reopened, in some cases they have reopened at reduced capacity and subject to additional operating restrictions, and we cannot predict how long they will be subject to such restrictions, or whether they will be subject to additional restrictions or future closures. As previously announced, in connection with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our tenants’ operations and financial performance, we have provided certain short-term non-rent related relief under our lease agreements to some of our tenants. We continue to monitor the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our tenant's businesses, including with respect to their respective financial and operating situations, liquidity needs and contingency planning.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. You can identify these statements by our use of the words "anticipates," "assumes," "believes," "estimates," "expects," "guidance," "intends," "plans," "projects," and similar expressions that do not relate to historical matters. All statements other than statements of historical fact are forward-looking statements. You should exercise caution in interpreting and relying on forward-looking statements because they involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors which are, in some cases, beyond the Company’s control and could materially affect actual results, performance, or achievements. Among those risks, uncertainties and other factors are the impact of changes in general economic conditions, including low consumer confidence, unemployment levels and depressed real estate prices resulting from the severity and duration of any downturn in the U.S. or global economy (including stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic and changes in the economic conditions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic); the Company’s dependence on subsidiaries of Caesars Entertainment, Inc. ("Caesars"), Penn National Gaming, Inc. ("Penn"), Seminole Hard Rock Entertainment, Inc. ("Hard Rock"), Century Casinos, Inc. ("Century Casinos") and Rock Ohio Ventures LLC ("JACK Entertainment") as tenants of our properties and Caesars, Penn, Hard Rock, Century Casinos and JACK Entertainment or certain of their respective subsidiaries as guarantors of the lease payments and the negative consequences any material adverse effect on their respective businesses could have on the Company; risks that the Company may not achieve the benefits contemplated by its recently completed transactions and acquisitions of real estate assets; the possibility that the Company identifies significant environmental, tax, legal or other issues that materially and adversely impact the value of assets acquired or secured as collateral (or other benefits it expects to receive) in any of its recently completed transactions; and the effects of the Company’s recently completed transactions on it, including the future impact on the Company’s financial condition, financial and operating results, cash flows, strategy and plans.

Currently, one of the most significant factors that could cause actual outcomes to differ materially from our forward-looking statements is the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the financial condition, results of operations, cash flows and performance of the Company and its tenants. The extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic impacts the Company and its tenants will largely depend on future developments that are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted with confidence, including the impact of the actions taken to contain the pandemic or mitigate its impact, and the direct and indirect economic effects of the pandemic and containment measures on our tenants, including various state governments and/or regulatory authorities issuing directives, mandates, orders or similar actions restricting freedom of movement and business operations, such as travel restrictions, border closures, business closures, limitations on public gatherings, quarantines and "shelter-at-home" orders that resulted in the temporary closure of our tenants’ operations at our properties, the ability of the Company’s tenants to successfully operate their businesses following the reopening of their respective facilities, including the costs of complying with regulatory requirements necessary to keep the facilities open, including compliance with operating restrictions and reduced capacity requirements, the need to close any of the facilities after reopening as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the effects of the negotiated capital expenditure reductions and other amendments to the lease agreements that the Company agreed to with certain of its tenants in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Each of the foregoing could have a material adverse effect on our tenants’ ability to satisfy their obligations under their leases with us, including their continued ability to pay rent in a timely manner, or at all, and/or to fund capital expenditures or make other payments required under their leases. In addition, changes and instability in global, national and regional economic activity and financial markets as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic have negatively impacted consumer discretionary spending and travel and may continue to do so, which could have a material adverse effect on our tenants’ businesses.

Although the Company believes that in making such forward-looking statements its expectations are based upon reasonable assumptions, such statements may be influenced by factors that could cause actual outcomes and results to be materially different from those projected. The Company cannot assure you that the assumptions upon which these statements are based will prove to have been correct. Additional important factors that may affect the Company’s business, results of operations and financial position are described from time to time in the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and the Company’s other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company does not undertake any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise, except as may be required by applicable law.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release presents Funds From Operations ("FFO"), FFO per share, Adjusted Funds From Operations ("AFFO"), AFFO per share and Adjusted EBITDA, which are not required by, or presented in accordance with, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). These are non-GAAP financial measures and should not be construed as alternatives to net income or as an indicator of operating performance (as determined in accordance with GAAP). We believe FFO, FFO per share, AFFO, AFFO per share and Adjusted EBITDA provide a meaningful perspective of the underlying operating performance of our business.

FFO is a non-GAAP financial measure that is considered a supplemental measure for the real estate industry and a supplement to GAAP measures. Consistent with the definition used by The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT"), we define FFO as net income (or loss) attributable to common stockholders (computed in accordance with GAAP) excluding (i) gains (or losses) from sales of certain real estate assets, (ii) depreciation and amortization related to real estate, (iii) gains and losses from change in control and (iv) impairment write-downs of certain real estate assets and investments in entities when the impairment is directly attributable to decreases in the value of depreciable real estate held by the entity.

AFFO is a non-GAAP financial measure that we use as a supplemental operating measure to evaluate our performance. We calculate AFFO by adding or subtracting from FFO non-cash leasing and financing adjustments, non-cash change in allowance for credit losses, transaction costs incurred in connection with the acquisition of real estate investments, non-cash stock-based compensation expense, amortization of debt issuance costs and original issue discount, other non-cash interest expense, non-real estate depreciation (which is comprised of the depreciation related to our golf course operations), capital expenditures (which are comprised of additions to property, plant and equipment related to our golf course operations), impairment charges related to non-depreciable real estate, gains (or losses) on debt extinguishment, other non-recurring, non-cash gains or losses (such as non-cash gain upon lease modification) and non-cash adjustments attributable to non-controlling interest with respect to certain of the foregoing. The non-cash change in allowance for credit losses consists of estimated credit loss for our investments in leases - sales-type and direct financing, investments in leases - financing receivables and investments in loans as a result of our adoption of ASU No. 2016-13 - Financial Instruments-Credit Losses (Topic 326). No similar adjustments are reflected in prior periods because the accounting standard was adopted effective January 1, 2020 and does not require retrospective application. Please see Note 6 - Allowance for Credit Losses in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K for further information.

We calculate Adjusted EBITDA by adding or subtracting from AFFO contractual interest expense and interest income (collectively, interest expense, net) and income tax expense.

These non-GAAP financial measures: (i) do not represent cash flow from operations as defined by GAAP; (ii) should not be considered as an alternative to net income as a measure of operating performance or to cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities; and (iii) are not alternatives to cash flow as a measure of liquidity. In addition, these measures should not be viewed as measures of liquidity, nor do they measure our ability to fund all of our cash needs, including our ability to make cash distributions to our stockholders, to fund capital improvements, or to make interest payments on our indebtedness. Investors are also cautioned that FFO, FFO per share, AFFO, AFFO per share and Adjusted EBITDA, as presented, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other real estate companies, including REITs, due to the fact that not all real estate companies use the same definitions. Our presentation of these measures does not replace the presentation of our financial results in accordance with GAAP.

Reconciliations of net income to FFO, FFO per share, AFFO, AFFO per share and Adjusted EBITDA are included in this release.
