Regulation FD Disclosure.

Empire City Transaction

As previously disclosed, on May 28, 2018, MGM Growth Properties LLC (the “Company”) entered into a definitive agreement to acquire the real property associated with Empire City Casino’s race track and casino (“Empire City”) from MGM Resorts International (“MGM”) upon MGM’s acquisition of Empire City (the “Empire City Transaction”). On January 28, 2019, the Empire City Transaction was approved by the New York State Gaming Commission. Although MGM and the Company intend to consummate the Empire City Transaction on or about January 29, 2019, the transaction remains subject to the satisfaction of other closing conditions, and accordingly there can be no assurance that the transaction will be consummated on the anticipated schedule or at all.

Preliminary Financial Information for the Three Months and Year Ended December 31, 2018

On January 28, 2019, the Company commenced an underwritten follow-on public offering of 14,500,000 of its Class A shares representing limited liability company interests pursuant to a Registration Statement on Form S-3 filed by the Company on May 18, 2017 (the “Offering”). As part of the Offering, the Company also intends to grant the underwriters a 30-day overallotment option to purchase up to an additional 2,175,000 Class A shares.

As disclosed in the preliminary prospectus supplement for the Offering, based on currently available information, the Company estimates that its total revenues for the three months and year ended December 31, 2018 were between $275 million and $285 million and between $995 million and $1.01 billion, respectively, of which approximately 24% and 13%, respectively, were attributable to Northfield Park Associates LLC. The Company estimates that its income before income taxes for the three months and year ended December 31, 2018 were between $68 million and $73 million and between $253 million and $258 million, respectively.

The preliminary estimates presented above are the responsibility of management and have been prepared in good faith on a consistent basis with prior periods. However, the Company has not completed its financial closing procedures for the three months and year ended December 31, 2018 and its actual results could be materially different from the Company’s estimates. In addition, Deloitte & Touche LLP, the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, has not audited, reviewed, compiled, or performed any procedures with respect to these preliminary estimates, and does not express an opinion or any other form of assurance with respect to these preliminary estimates presented above or their achievability. During the course of the preparation of the Company’s consolidated financial statements and related notes as of and for the year ended December 31, 2018, the Company and its auditors may identify items that would require the Company to make material adjustments to the preliminary estimates presented above. As a result, prospective investors should exercise caution in relying on this information and should not draw any inferences from this information regarding financial or operating data not provide. These preliminary estimates should not be viewed as a substitute for full financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In addition, these preliminary estimates are not necessarily indicative of the results to be achieved in any future period.
