Entry into a Material Agreement.
On November 14, 2018, VICI Properties Inc. (the “Company”) and VICI Properties L.P. (the “Operating Partnership”) entered into an underwriting agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC, Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, as representatives of the several underwriters named therein (collectively, the “Underwriters”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to sell 30,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Common Stock”), at a public offering price of $21.00 per share (the “Offering”), to the Underwriters. Pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, the Company also granted the Underwriters a 30-day option to purchase from the Company up to an additional 4,500,000 shares of its Common Stock. The Company estimates that the net proceeds from the Offering, after deducting the underwriting discount and the payment of estimated expenses related to the Offering, will be approximately $603.3 million. The Company intends to contribute the net proceeds from the Offering to the Operating Partnership, which expects to use the net proceeds from the Offering, together with debt financing and available cash on hand, to pay the aggregate purchase price of $700.0 million for the recently announced acquisition of the land and real estate assets of the Greektown Casino-Hotel in Detroit, Michigan, and related fees and expenses.
The Offering was made pursuant to the Company’s effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (No. 333-227641) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) on October 1, 2018. The material terms of the Offering are described in the prospectus supplement dated November 14, 2018.
The Offering is expected to close on November 19, 2018, subject to the satisfaction of the closing conditions set forth in the Underwriting Agreement. Under the Underwriting Agreement, the Company and the Operating Partnership made certain customary representations, warranties and covenants in the Underwriting Agreement concerning the Company, the Operating Partnership and the registration statement and the Company has also agreed to indemnify the Underwriters against certain liabilities, or to contribute to payments that the Underwriter may be required to make in respect of those liabilities.
Certain of the Underwriters and their respective affiliates have, from time to time, performed, and may in the future perform, various financial advisory, commercial banking and investment banking services for the Company, for which they received or will receive customary fees and expenses, including serving as: (i) lenders and/or administrative agents under the Company’s revolving credit facility and first lien term loan facility; (ii) underwriters in the Company’s initial public offering; (iii) solicitation agents in the Company’s recently completed solicitation of consents relating to its 8.0% senior secured second lien notes due 2023; and (iv) financial advisors in connection with various of the Company’s acquisition transactions.
The foregoing description of the Underwriting Agreement does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to, the full text of the Underwriting Agreement, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 1.1 and is incorporated by reference herein.
