EXPLANATORY NOTE
This report combines the quarterly reports on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2021, of MGM Growth Properties LLC, a Delaware limited liability corporation, and MGM Growth Properties Operating Partnership LP, a Delaware limited partnership. Unless otherwise indicated or unless the context requires otherwise, all references in this report to “we,” “us,” “our,” “MGP” or “the Company” refer to MGM Growth Properties LLC together with its consolidated subsidiaries, including MGM Growth Properties Operating Partnership LP. Unless otherwise indicated or unless the context requires otherwise, all references to the “Operating Partnership” refer to MGM Growth Properties Operating Partnership LP together with its consolidated subsidiaries.
MGP is a real estate investment trust (“REIT”), and the owner of the sole general partner of the Operating Partnership. As of September 30, 2021, MGP owned approximately 58.4% of the Operating Partnership units, each such unit representing limited partnership interests in the Operating Partnership (“Operating Partnership units”). The remaining approximately 41.6% of the Operating Partnership’s units are owned by our parent, MGM Resorts International (“MGM”) and certain of its subsidiaries. As the owner of the sole general partner of the Operating Partnership, MGP has the full, exclusive and complete responsibility for the Operating Partnership’s day-to-day management and control.
We believe combining the quarterly reports on Form 10-Q of MGP and the Operating Partnership into this single report results in the following benefits:
enhances investors’ understanding of MGP and the Operating Partnership by enabling investors to view the business as a whole in the same manner as management views and operates the business;
eliminates duplicative disclosure and provides a more streamlined and readable presentation since a substantial portion of the disclosure applies to both MGP and the Operating Partnership, which we believe will assist investors in getting all relevant information on their investment in one place rather than having to access and review largely duplicative reports; and
creates time and cost efficiencies through the preparation of one combined report instead of two separate reports.
There are a few differences between MGP and the Operating Partnership, which are reflected in the disclosures in this report. We believe it is important to understand the differences between MGP and the Operating Partnership in the context of how we operate as an interrelated consolidated company. MGP is a REIT, whose only material assets consist of Operating Partnership units and sole beneficial ownership of the general partner of the Operating Partnership. As a result, MGP does not conduct business itself, other than acting as the owner of the sole general partner of the Operating Partnership, but it may from time to time issue additional public equity in the form of Class A shares. The Operating Partnership holds all the assets of the Company. The Operating Partnership conducts the operations of the business and is structured as a partnership with no publicly traded equity. Except for the net proceeds from certain offerings of Class A shares by MGP, which were contributed to the Operating Partnership in exchange for Operating Partnership units, the Operating Partnership generates the capital required by the Company’s business through the Operating Partnership’s operations, by the Operating Partnership’s issuance of indebtedness or through the issuance of Operating Partnership units.
The presentation of noncontrolling interest, shareholders’ equity and partners’ capital are the main areas of difference between the condensed consolidated financial statements of MGP and those of the Operating Partnership. The Operating Partnership units held by subsidiaries of MGM are accounted for as partners’ capital in the Operating Partnership’s condensed consolidated financial statements and as noncontrolling interest within equity in MGP’s condensed consolidated financial statements. The Operating Partnership units held by MGP in the Operating Partnership are accounted for as partners’ capital in the Operating Partnership’s condensed consolidated financial statements and within Class A shareholders’ equity in MGP’s condensed consolidated financial statements. These differences in the presentations between shareholders’ equity in MGP’s condensed consolidated financial statements and partners’ capital in the Operating Partnership’s condensed consolidated financial statements therefore result from the differences in the equity and limited partnership interests issued at the MGP and Operating Partnership levels, respectively.
To help investors understand the significant differences between MGP and the Operating Partnership, this report presents the condensed consolidated financial statements separately for MGP and the Operating Partnership.
As the sole beneficial owner of MGM Growth Properties OP GP LLC, which is the sole general partner with control of the Operating Partnership, MGP consolidates the Operating Partnership for financial reporting purposes, and it does not have



any assets other than its investment in the Operating Partnership. Therefore, the assets and liabilities of MGP and the Operating Partnership are the same on their respective condensed consolidated financial statements. The separate discussions of MGP and the Operating Partnership in this report should be read in conjunction with each other to understand the results of the Company on a condensed consolidated basis and how management operates the Company.
In order to establish that the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer of each entity have made the requisite certifications and that the Company and the Operating Partnership are compliant with Rule 13a-15 or Rule 15d-15 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) and 18 U.S.C. §1350, this report also includes separate “Item 4. Controls and Procedures” sections and separate Exhibit 31 and 32 certifications for each of the Company and the Operating Partnership.
All other sections of this report, including Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations and Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk, are presented together for MGP and the Operating Partnership.
