On July 6, 2018, the Company completed its previously announced acquisition of the Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park (“Northfield”), which comprises the TRS operations. The Company funded the acquisition with cash on hand and borrowings under its senior secured credit facility. Simultaneously with the close, the Company entered into a new agreement with Hard Rock to continue to serve as the manager of the property.
On September 18, 2018, the Company entered into an agreement to sell the operations of Northfield to a subsidiary of MGM Resorts International (“MGM Resorts”) for approximately $275 million plus net working capital adjustments. The TRS will concurrently liquidate and the real estate assets of Northfield will be added to the existing master lease between MGM Resorts and the Company. As a result, the annual rent payment under the master lease will increase by $60 million, prorated for the remainder of the lease year. Consistent with the master lease terms, 90% of this rent will be fixed and contractually grow at 2% per year until 2022. The transaction is expected to close in the first half of 2019, subject to regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions. The transaction was approved by the Company’s Conflicts Committee.
“We are excited to present our results of operations and transaction activity for our third quarter,” said James Stewart, CEO of MGM Growth Properties. “We announced the closing of the acquisition of the real estate and operations and the subsequent sale of the operations of Northfield to MGM Resorts for $275 million. Northfield just recorded its best quarter ever in terms of revenue, EBITDA and market share. We are thrilled to partner with MGM Resorts who will introduce their award-winning M Life Rewards program to further drive growth at Northfield. Additionally, MGM Springfield opened its doors in August and we are excited to see that Right of First Offer property come online and enter the Massachusetts market.”
